Would You Like To Build A System? The Colorful CVN B560M Gaming Frozen Motherboard

Micro-ATX And A White PCB, What Elsa Do You Want?

It’s been a while since we have seen a review of a Colorful motherboard which makes Tweaktown’s recent review an interesting look at how that company has done implementing Intel’s B560M chipset.  The board uses twelve stage power, in a 10+2 arrangement; fairly common for this level of motherboard.  What isn’t so common is the peripheral support, as the CVN B560M Gaming Frozen provides two full-size PCIe x16 slots, two m.2 ports, and support for four DIMMs.

The aesthetics also stand out, not least of all because of the rarity of white PCBs nowadays and the addition of aluminium heatsinks are very complimentary to the overall Colorful theme.  This board could look rather striking in a white mATX case if you were planning on a unique looking build.

Performance-wise, the board offers results similar to a Z590 motherboard, with one glaring difference.  The USB ports lack any 3.2 support and hence the USB performance lags behind that of other Intel motherboards.  Apart from that the ~$180 Colorful CVN B560M Gaming Frozen offers solid performance and an interesting aesthetics.

White PCB motherboards are extremely rare these days, but the CVN B560M Gaming Frozen manages to deliver for those on a budget.

    12 phases is a lot. Sadly that information is useless without knowing what those stages consist of and how they are configured and this review doesn’t get into how the VRM performs so best not to even talk about if if you can’t provide any useful information.

    Also there is really no reason to go into that level of performance benchmarking as thats all up to the chipset and microcode provided by the platform (Intel or AMD).
