Real combat sharing, low-end CPUs also play high-performance at ultra-high frequency, MSI's new mortar motherboard test

Real combat sharing, low-end CPU can also play high-performance at ultra-high frequency, MSI's new mortar motherboard installation and performance test shared with you a few days ago the method to allow Intel's low-end CPU to overclock, that is to use MSI's new motherboard MAG B660M MORTAR MAX WIFI DDR4 Mortar. This motherboard comes with OC ENGINE, which allows low-end CPUs without K to be overclocked. In the last article, we saw the details of this motherboard and shared a tutorial on how to overclock. Today, I will share the selected accessories, the installation process and more test results. Skip the previous one. First, the CPU will be installed. It can be seen that it is 12490F. This CPU is relatively good. Then install 2 M.2 NMVe SSD hard drives, all of which support PCIe 4.0x4. Then install the heat dissipation armor. Install the radiator below. From the perspective of overclocking, it should be better to use 360 ​​water cooling, but air cooling is also good, that is, the price has an advantage, so this time I used the Donghai Gemini S9 EX, which is a dual-tower six-heat pipe radiator. First, fix the backplane of the radiator and the fixing pillars and cross-arms on the motherboard side. Then apply silicone grease on the surface of the CPU, place the double tower radiator on it, and tighten the 2 fixing screws in the middle. Note that since it is a dual-tower radiator, it will affect the placement of memory sticks. Here, memory sticks with a height of up to 4.5 cm are supported. Therefore, before installing the radiator fan, you must install the memory module first. Here is a pair of ADATA XPG memory light bars, Longyao D50 DDR4 3600 16G*2 glaze white gaming RGB memory bars. This memory bar is a white light bar, very beautiful, with the words XPG on the top, supports a variety of color schemes, and supports glare synchronization. The perimeter is a white reloaded alloy vest with a thickness of 1.95mm, which achieves good heat dissipation and ensures overclocking. The top light bar is an irregular triangle, highlighting the e-sports style. Strictly select high-quality particles, optional 3200MHz and 3600MHz specifications. Take a small pose photo. Insert the memory first, then install the fan, and connect the fan to the ARGB color light connector by the way. Put the motherboard into the chassis to install and fix it. The chassis is a MSI Blade 100R, and the internal space is rich. It has vertical air ducts for up and down ventilation, and the back panel also has ventilation ducts. From this angle, you can see the ventilation position, and you can choose 240 water cooling. The graphics card selected is the AMD RADEON RX6700 10G Platinum Edition of Sapphire Sapphire, which has just been sold in China recently. In terms of specifications, AMD Radeon RX 6700 is still a Navi 22 medium-sized core with RDNA 2 architecture, 32 sets of CU computing units, and 2304 stream processors; texture units and rasterization processing units are 144 and 64 respectively. , the video memory bit width is 160Bit, and the video memory bandwidth is 320 GB/s. The Radeon RX 6700's specs are right in between the Radeon RX 6700 XT and the Radeon RX 6650 XT, with 10GB of large video memory. A good power supply is the guarantee for the normal operation of the computer. The power supply of this computer is Antec HCG1000, HCG gold medal, and naturally it is also a full module series, and has a 10-year warranty service. Antec is a veteran computer accessories manufacturer with a history of more than 35 years. The power supply sign can be seen from the bottom of the chassis. This power module is powered by the 20+8pin motherboard, leaving room for upgrades. Hybrid mode, mute is effective. 80PLUS gold certification, full module line, active DLC+DC-DC conversion, 120mmFDB silent fan, liquid bearing. 140mm small size, the lowest fan speed is 0, energy saving and noise reduction design. All Japanese capacitors, OCP/OVP/SCP/OPP/OTP/SIP/NLO line protection. OK, the installation is complete, we can see that the overall appearance of this MSI Blade 100R chassis is more atmospheric. Although the appearance is square, it is not rigid. The design of the front face does not make the overall lines messy and has a feeling of unity. The hinged side-opening door is easy to open, supports dual 360 water cooling, supports horizontal and vertical dual air ducts, and supports 240mm fans on the side panels to install cold radiators, giving computer enthusiasts full freedom. It comes with 4 ARGB fans and a 6-interface ARGB HUB, which can realize unified control of global lighting. Large space, large back space, simple and easy installation, and support for vertical installation of graphics cards. It can be said that it is a case with characteristics and functions that is worth starting, and it is not a choice for the whole family. Start the computer, we see that the system is successfully booted. The color of the display is very good, this is MSI's 2K gaming screen MAG274QRF-QD, IPS screen, 2K ultra-high-definition fine picture. And it also has a high refresh rate of 165Hz and a GTG response speed of 1ms. It can be said that playing games ensures that the opponent direction is kept in time. At the same time, it supports NVIDIA G-SYNC, which effectively ensures that the screen does not tear during the game and achieves a good game experience. Its color is rich, using the original color quantum dot technology, its color gamut can easily cover 100% sRGB, 100% AdobeRGB and 97% of the P3 color gamut. In addition, the color accuracy performance is also very good. The average Delta E is only 0.82, and the color accuracy performance is very good. The system configuration is as follows, the CPU is Intel i5-12490F, the motherboard is MSI's MAG B660M MORTAR MAX WIFI DDR4, the memory is ADATA XPG Longyao D50 gaming light bar DDR4 3600MHz, 16x2=32GB, the graphics card is Sapphire RX6700, and the display is MSI The MAG274QRF-QD quantum dot 2K gaming monitor. At the same time, the heat dissipation adopts the Donghai Gemini S9 EX six heat pipe double tower air-cooled radiator with overclocking 3. As shown above, in the previous article, we explained in detail how to set up overclocking to achieve better performance. This time we will do a more comprehensive test to see how much performance improvement you can get by overclocking a low-end CPU. In order to be closer to the actual situation of daily life, we choose to overclock to 5GHz, that is, to overclock the base frequency from 100MHz to 125MHz, and the voltage is 1.25V, which is an acceptable configuration parameter for ordinary people in daily use. So from the memory point of view, after overclocking, the memory frequency has risen from 2666MHz to 3333MHz. The CPU-Z single-core score has increased from 711 at the silent frequency to 787.3, and the full-core score has increased from 4919.2 at the silent frequency to 6111.4, an increase of more than 10%. CINBENCH R23 test, the silent frequency is 1433 for single core and 11195 for multi-core. After overclocking to 5GHz, the silent frequency of single-core is 1931, and the multi-core is 14649, both of which are greatly improved, with an increase of 34.75% and 30.85% respectively. Master Lu, the total score under silent frequency is 1,456,333, of which the CPU score is 558,950 and the memory is 172,949. After overclocking, the total score reached 1,660,313, of which the CPU score was 698,734, an increase of 25%, the memory score was 199,836, an increase of 15.55%, and the total score increased by 14%. Through the above test, we can see that the performance has been improved a lot. It can be said that the combination of low-end CPU and motherboard can achieve the effect of high-end motherboard + CPU. At this point in the test, I couldn't help but itch, and the CPU frequency was overclocked to 5.2GHz. We see that the total score has increased again, reaching more than 1.7 million, and the same CPU and memory scores have also increased. When running 3D MARK's CPU profile, compared with the silent frequency after overclocking, the scores of each score are improved by more than 20%. 3D MARK TIME SPY comparison, where the CPU score is 11705 vs 9176. 3DMARK FIRE STRIKE score comparison. 3DMARK TIME SPY EXTREME comparison. 3DMARK FIRE STRIKE EXTREME score comparison. Through the above test, it can be seen that in the 3DMARK test, whether it is a pure CPU or a 3D game test, overclocking will help the system and improve the score. Through various tests, there is no doubt that MSI's new motherboard MAG B660M MORTAR MAX WIFI DDR4 mortar can also achieve overclocking for low-end i3 and i5 CPUs, and achieve the purpose of improving system performance at low cost. At the same time, it should be noted that this method of overclocking will also increase the frequency of the memory, so pay attention to the quality and applicable frequency of the memory. Like this test, the 3600MHz Longyao D50 DDR4 of ADATA XPG is used. Overclocking memory sticks, so even after overclocking, it is still within its applicable frequency range and works normally.
