ASUS TUF Gaming X570 Plus WiFi Review

Test Setup and Overclocking

ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi Review

Test Setup

Following on from our motherboard comparison with the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs it's time to just look at how each individual X570 motherboard fares.

ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus WiFi (1201 BIOS with AGESA 1.0.0.3)
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
G.Skill Trident Z 3600 MHz
Corsair Vengeance RGB 4600 MHz
Corsair MP500 M.2 - OS Drive
Aorus PCIE4 NVME - Storage Speed Tests
Nvidia RTX 2080Ti
Corsair HX1000i
Corsair H150i
Corsair ML Fans

Overclocking

Despite being neither a part of the flagship ASUS Republic of Gamers brand nor advertised as a beast of an overclocker the TUF Plus does well in extracting 4.35 GHz from all twelve cores of our test Ryzen 9 3900X. If you prefer to concentrate more upon the memory speed than raw CPU horsepower then there is much to applaud here too with the TUF Plus capable of 4460 MHz from our Corsair DDR4 kit.

I miss the original Sabertooth line of TUF boards with the armour, Yeah it was only for show but mixed with a full cover metal backplate it gave the board a really cool look and feel, These new TUF boards since Z170, Horrible looking, Onwards all look like high end Fisherprice toys.Quote

Actually I tested the P67 Armor with and without the armor long ago. If you had a CPU fan that blew down on the CPU as opposed to perpendicular, the temp drop on the VRM, and chipsets with the armor was a difference of 10C!!!!

Mainly because you could close the vents and generate a strong air flow underneath it. I think the Z77/97 also had this design, but then it became less effective. And now.. as you say, just for show.Quote
