With such a small heatsink over the power phases, and a serious amount of juice capable of being drawn by the Zen architecture, we were curious as to how much of a difference it could make to your performance by utilising a down-facing cooler rather than the standard tower cooler. For the purposes of today's review we wont be utilising the AIO we normally do, because we're interested in the temperatures of the VRM rather than the CPU itself.

The big topic of discussions for Ryzen was and still is memory ability. 3200MHz memory was easy to plumb in with just a flick of the XMP setting in the bios. Pushing things further the board was happy with the 3333MHz setting too. Beyond this point we failed to get the board to post no matter what settings we used so the board did stop well short of the 4000MHz top option seen in the BIOS.

The board was also capable of reaching 3.9GHz on all of the CPU's we tested, with only the 1800X falling short of the 4.1GHz we have seen on that as a maximum in the past. Not a shabby set of numbers for such a small and well priced board when you think about it though.

I doubt there will be a monoblock for this board unless the sales are insane. But it could happen.Quote
