Trying To Choke An X570

Kitguru took four sub-$200 X570 motherboards, ASRock’s X570 Steel Legend, ASUS’s TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi, Gigabyte’s X570 Aorus Elite and MSI’s MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi and tested how well their power subsystems can handle a serious load.  They overclocked a Ryzen 9 3900X to 4.25GHz running @ 1.35V which resulted in roughly 200W of power draw and then hooked up several K-type thermocouples in different areas to measure temperatures after an hour of heavy usage. All of the boards were using the latest available non-ABBA AGESA BIOSes.

See how well the company’s various power phase designs did at keeping the temperatures at a reasonable level in their full review.

The £210 price point is where we start to see X570 motherboards with an alluring set of features and capable power delivery solutions. But just how good are the power delivery systems on these ‘affordable’ X570 offerings?
