ASRock B450M Steel Legend Review

WEB: ASRock MSRP: US $99.99 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

It’s been a long time since I’ve had this board in my test rig and even longer since the B450 chipset debuted. As a budget and alternative chipset to X470, it is understandable that many may shy away from it particularly those who are looking at the upper echelon of gaming motherboards from ASRock. Afterall, quite literally my favourite board to date for the X570 chipset is the ASRock X570 Taichi, par none. However, not all of us are fortunate enough to have the means for such a board and the B series is where we must find our motherboard solutions. Fortunately, this isn’t just any B450 motherboard, it’s the ASRock B450M Steel Legend and legendary it very much is.

ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming Review

WEB: ASUS MSRP: US $329.99 | ZAR 6,489 | AUTHOR: Neo

In an ideal world many would like to own the Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi), or even better yet the Crosshair VIII Formula. However, that isn’t the reality we live in and such high priced motherboards are simply not feasible to many. That said, just because these aforementioned boards may be out of reach, it doesn’t mean one can’t enjoy many of the key features they have at a more palatable price. The ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming, despite the lamentable name claims to be one such offering. Think of it as a Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi), with a number of things removed or changed. Surprisingly, what has been done away with leaves much of the motherboard intact and that means you get all the ROG ‘exclusive’ features. Perhaps not in their full glory, but flashed out enough to make it worth your while.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Review

WEB: AMD MSRP: US $399.99 | ZAR 7,499 | AUTHOR: Neo

 

Hard to believe it’s been almost four months since AMD announced the AMD Ryzen 3000 series. In that time, this platform has undergone quiet a few changes, all for the better I might add. All of the firmware updates from AMD and motherboard vendor side have improved mainly in increased compatibility and adding high speed DRAM support. As it stands, the Ryzen 7 3800X is a better CPU today than it was at launch. What follows is what you may expect out of a Ryzen 7 3800X in everyday use, gaming and in productivity right now.

X570 AORUS MASTER Review

Now that the dust has settled somewhat with the launch of the X570 and AMD’s 3000 series CPUs, it’s time to look at one of the most interesting entries in the X570 line up. The X570 AORUS MASTER was the first boards we received, but from then until now, bit about is has changed and the review that you would have read on launch day would not be anywhere near as representative or as good as what you would buy right now.

ASUS Introduces ROG STRIX X370-I and B350-I Mini-ITX Motherboards for AMD Ryzen


Mini-ITX boards are among the most difficult to produce. Their diminutive 6.7” x 6.7” dimensions leave little real estate for slots and ports, let alone the extra features that make ROG unique. We’re not willing to compromise your experience for a compact footprint, so it takes some time and creativity to make everything fit. But it’s worth the effort, because our new Strix X370-I Gaming and Strix B350-I Gaming motherboards for Socket AM4 raise the bar for small-form-factor Ryzen builds. They match the cutting-edge features of their full-sized siblings, including liquid-ready cooling and addressable RGB lighting, and they combine an M.2 SSD heatsink and amped-up audio on an innovative riser card.
