A good computer cost-effective motherboard is the key, take a look at this motherboard

How to choose a suitable motherboard is a tangle that every DIY has to choose. Although the motherboard manufacturer has already divided you into three grades: high, medium and low, but after all, you only know after you have used it. It happened that the Jingdong 618 event, the motherboard manufacturer launched a 30-day worry-free trial event, so I also boldly tried different motherboards. For example, my idle 5600X, let's see how it performs on different motherboards, such as this Gigabyte Snow Sculpture B550M AORUS PRO AX motherboard. The B550 is a mid-range series. Compared with the Intel B660 series, the biggest advantage compared with the B660 is that it can achieve CPU overclocking, which is one of the reasons why many people like it. GIGABYTE's B550M AORUS PRO AX motherboard, commonly known as ferret, is one such motherboard. There are technical indicators of the product on the back of the box, and several prominent parts can be seen, such as CPU digital power supply, efficient heat dissipation, PCI-E 4.0, 2.5G wired network card, WiFi 6 wireless network card, etc. Take out the motherboard. This is an M-ATX motherboard. The overall background color is black, and it has a large metal silver cover design. The heat sink in the lower right corner has the words AORUS and a snow sculpture mark. The power supply capability of the motherboard is very important. This motherboard adopts a 10+2-phase digital power supply design. Each phase power supply adopts an intelligently controlled DrMOS, which can handle a total current of up to 600A. The motherboard is designed with a 2oz copper circuit board, which can provide better power supply capability. At the same time, it can be seen that it adopts an integrated IO design with an extended heat sink, which can provide good heat dissipation. Let's take a look at the details. First, look at the top of the motherboard. From the perspective of the above picture, there is an 8PIN power supply interface on the right side, and a CPU_FAN interface and a CPU-OPT interface on the left side, and then see a ARGB interface and 12VRGB interface. Look at the right side of the motherboard. From the perspective of the above picture, there are 4 DDR4 memory slots. On the right side of the motherboard are the system FAN interface, 24-port motherboard power supply slot, 4 SATA interfaces and a USB 3.1 interface. There is also a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C interface in the inner position. There are many interfaces on the lower side of the motherboard. In addition to the motherboard start button and status light, there are 2 USB 2.0 interfaces, a fan interface, audio interface, etc., which are relatively abundant. One ARGB interface and one 12V RGB interface. In general, the interface of this motherboard is still very rich, with multiple fan interfaces, easy to connect. 2 ARGB interfaces and 2 12V RGB interfaces, it is very convenient to realize light pollution. Looking at the integrated IO interface, from left to right are four USB2.0 interfaces, one DP interface and one HDMI 2.1 interface, three USB 3.2 Gen 1 interfaces, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 TYPE-C interface, and one USB 3.2 Gen interface 2 USB-A ports, a 2.5G wired network port, 2 SMA WiFi 6 antenna ports, and an audio port. This all-in-one IO interface is still very rich, and at the same time, there is a one-key flash BIOS button, you can directly flash the BIOS without entering the BIOS, which is very convenient. The motherboard has 3 PCI-E slots, the first is PCIe 4.0x16, the second is PCIe 3.0x1, and the third is PCIe 3.0x2. With 2 M.2 slots, the first is PCIe 4.0x4, which is directly connected to the CPU, and the second is PCIe 3.0x4, which is connected to the PCH. Accessories include manuals, CD-ROMs, 2 SATA hard drive cables, and unique antennas. In general, from the technical parameters and physical viewing, this motherboard is still good, the design is good, the interface is relatively complete, let's see the actual use effect. Using the AMD 5600X, the original mid-range king of price/performance. The hard disk chooses an M.2 SSD hard disk. For heat dissipation, I chose an air-cooled radiator, the installation is simpler, and the Donghai EX6000 is overclocked three. Very transparent radiator, 50 radiators, black electrophoresis process. Six 6mm composite heat pipes, high efficiency of cooling liquid gravity return, heat pipe surface blackening electrophoresis process, single heat conduction 65W. The base is pure copper high-gloss mirror treatment process, which makes the contact better. Complete accessories, support AMD and INTEL CPU, GT-3 silicone grease. The base is set. The installation is simple and easy, and the I-shaped metal turnbuckle is used, which can be easily installed without tension. Then install the fans on both sides, connect the control line with the second turn and one line, and then connect to the CPU_FAN interface of the motherboard. Put it in the case, the case is an ATX case, so it looks more spacious and easy to install. The chassis uses Antec Antec DF800 FLUX, which has 3 air inlet designs at the bottom, side, and front. The air is exhausted through the rear and top, and supports 360 water cooling installation at the top and front, which can be formed from right to left. And two air ducts from bottom to top allow users to freely choose according to their needs to achieve a strong cooling effect. The air duct design of this chassis has been patented. The front face has a unique design, with 4 ARGB fans, 1 reverse fan, and ARGB and fan HUB, which can achieve a good lighting design. It can control and switch various equivalents independently, and can also be connected to the ARGB of the motherboard. Interface to achieve global and unified control from software. The back panel at the back of the chassis comes with an RGB and fan USB, which supports 6 ARGB inputs and 6 fan connections. The power supply is Antec NEO ECO 750, which is an economical and cost-effective choice. Boot, the overall effect is still very cool, let's take a look at the performance of this motherboard. Master Lu correctly identified the model of this motherboard, the CPU is AMD 5600X, 8X2 16GB memory, the card is on, and the wireless network card is WiFi 6 AX200. The 5600X silent frequency is 3.7Hz, and CPU-Z recognizes the motherboard. The memory supports XMP and is 2400MHz when it is not turned on. CPU-Z test score, single-core 636, multi-core 5074. AIDA64 memory test, read above 40000MB/s. Run Master Lu, the processor score is 549562, and the memory score is 110103. The advantage of this motherboard is that it can be overclocked to achieve CPU overclocking. Of course, the memory can also be overclocked. Let's first turn on the XMP of the memory and see the effect. Enter the BIOS, we can see that it is very easy to set in the BIOS, just enable XMP, and the memory frequency can be increased to 3600MHz. The reading of the display memory has soared to more than 59013MB/s, which can be said to be greatly improved. Then enter the BIOS, simply increase the frequency, this motherboard can set the frequency to a very fine level, we set it to 4700MHz. After setting, the computer starts up smoothly, the CPU-Z display frequency reaches 4700MHz, the single-core score is 641.9, and the multi-core score is 5121.2, which is higher than the default frequency. Looking at the effect of Master Lu, the CPU score is 559156, which is an improvement compared to the previous 549562. Run the AIDA64 FPU stress test, and the temperature is controlled at 70 degrees for normal operation. In general, this Snow Sculpture B550M AORUS PRO AX motherboard, paired with AMD 5600X, can be said to be a very cost-effective choice. It can not only overclock the CPU, but also the memory, and the operation is simple, even ordinary enthusiasts can achieve . Support PCIe NVMe 4.0x4 SSD hard disk, with multiple ARGB and A12V RGB interfaces, easy to realize the synchronization of the magic color chassis, wired 2.5G, wireless support WiFi 6 2.4G, high-speed transmission. Is a cost-effective, good performance, the price of the motherboard.
