Description

The graphics card under gaming load was drawing near 395W power with a maximum temperature of 75° We used a custom fan curve for the graphics card so the fans were running at high speed. For WiFi 6E support out of the box, either the MSI Pro B650-P WiFi or Gigabyte B650 Aorus Elite AX will serve you well. Fully Covered Heatpipe & M.2 Thermal Guard: To Ensure VRM Power Stability & 25110 PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSD Performance Lastly, we have 1x MOSFET for MISC using Renesas ISL99390 SPS 30A for stable power delivery to the PCIe lanes. In terms of power delivery, this motherboard seems adequate enough in this range though twin digital 14 phases sound like a doubler design to me. SOC Mofset The B650 AORUS ELITE AX motherboard is a mid-range segment motherboard from the GIGABYTE. The motherboard has a standard ATX size and is still adequately feature-rich. GIGABYTE has retained the stenciling and design element from the previous generation however, at the same time, they have gone to another level in the design department of the motherboard to deliver a solid product for the enthusiasts. Let’s start exploring the motherboard. Complete Layout

x HDMI port, supporting a maximum resolution of 4096×2160@60 Hz, Support for HDMI 2.1 version and HDCP 2.3. In comparison, Gigabyte's B650 Aero G appears to be a superior creator-type motherboard. The VRM is significantly upgraded with sixteen 90A power stages for the vcore. It also includes WiFi 6E and more USB 3.2 ports, making it a better board overall. For recording temperatures, we're using a digital thermometer with K-Type thermocouples and we'll be reporting the peak rear PCB temperature. Finally, we're not reporting Delta T over Ambient; instead, we maintain a room temperature of 21 degrees and ensure a consistent ambient temperature. A thermocouple is positioned next to the test system. We have a total of 3x PCIe slots. There is no Gen PCIe slot on this motherboard instead we have a Gen 5-based M.2 NVMe SSD port wired to the CPU. The top PCIe slot is Gen 4 x16 and wired to the CPU. The other two PCIe slots are wired to the chipset on the Gen 3 bus and both are rated at X1 speed (my complaint here). At least one should have been X4! The very reason is the chipset implementation. Both slots shared the bus with the M.2 Wi-Fi 6E module, and 2.5GbE LAN. Behold the B650 chipset! We have a simple layout with a power delivery circuit on the right. I am guessing this chipset would draw near 7W or so hence we have a passive cooling for it.Having taken a look at each board individually, it's time to get to testing. For testing all B650 boards, we're using the Gigabyte Aorus C500 Glass case with the Aorus WaterForce X 360mm AIO. The SilverStone Air Penetrator 120SK A-RGB was blowing focused air toward the graphics card and NVMe ports at its full speed. Thermal Imaging Here are all the VRM temperature results, and it won't surprise anyone to learn that the Aorus Master and Taichi are the two best performing boards here, though there are several Aorus Pro and Elite models with similar temps in the low 50s. Now, let’s turn our attention to the PCIe slots on this motherboard. This motherboard has 3x PCIe slots.

And with that said, let us know which of these B650 boards you're planning on buying, or perhaps you've already bought your board. Either way, let us know in the comments section. Hopefully, this B650 buying guide was helpful to you. If so, please share it with your peers; it might help us muster up the energy to do this again with another generation of motherboards. Shopping Shortcuts: One of the salient features of AMD’s new platform is the support for upcoming Gen 5 base M.2 NVMe SSDs and we are seeing some jaw-dropping read/write speeds on those drives. The B650 chipset-based motherboard provides support for Gen 5 M.2 port. We should stress that once VRM temps dip below 70c, it doesn't really matter which board runs cooler; for core-heavy productivity in a warm environment, all boards will perform exceedingly well. Even temperatures sub 80c are very acceptable and really, it's only the boards running at over 90c that we'd advise avoiding, especially in warmer climates.

The DDR5 support of up to 5200MHz is mentioned. This is with the help of a BIOS update. Since the new 7000 series CPUs will have iGPU, there is an HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectivity options from the CPU. There is one USB Type-C Gen 2 port and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports along with a USB 2.0 hub which is driving up to 4x USB 2.0/1.1 ports.
