MSI magstar mortar? Or ASUS tufming? I believe many netizens in the selection of motherboard will also give priority to the selection of these two series of motherboard products. Why? Cost effective, good materials, appropriate positioning, strong scalability, to see which product is suitable for themselves. Well, Intel 500 Series motherboards are all here, and the manufacturer just sent magmar mortar and tuffing to our evaluation room. Let’s do the evaluation one by one for you! First came the magb560 mmortarwifi of MSI.
From the naming, we can understand that MSI magb560 mmortarwifi (hereinafter referred to as “MSI b560m mortar WiFi”) belongs to MSI MAG series, focusing on high cost performance. At the same time, the suffix also indicates that this motherboard has built-in WiFi module, which supports the latest WiFi 6e.
By the way, we made a comparison table with the previous generation of mortar WiFi, and the improvement of MSI b560m mortar WiFi is relatively obvious. In addition to the high standard brought by b560 chip level, MSI is also equipped with more and higher speed USB interface and more powerful power supply.
MSI b560m mortar WiFi adopts mATX board design. The layout of the whole motherboard is quite compact. You can see that some chips are arranged on the back of PCB. In order to enhance the electrical performance of the components, the motherboard adopts a 6-layer PCB design, in which the design of 2oz copper foil is added（ A small window with 6 layers of PCB can be seen in the lower right corner of the back of the motherboard)
The back IO baffle interface is quite rich: 4 * USB2.0, DP, HDMI, usb3.2gen15gbps type-A, usb3.2gen2x220gbps type-C, 2.5G network interface, usb3.2gen15gbps type-A, WiFi 6e antenna interface, and audio output interface.
The VRM part of the motherboard has relatively strong heat dissipation. It adopts the design of two independent VRM radiators to cover the whole power supply module (including the power supply inductor). The heat dissipation volume of the main power supply VRM part is large and extends to the IO baffle.
At the same time, due to the same lga1200 slot design, the motherboard supports both core 11th generation processor and core 10th generation processor. However, it should be noted that pciegen4.0 is only supported when using core 11th generation.
Memory is believed to be the highlight of this generation of b560. It can finally support memory overclocking. The introduction of the latest memory frequency division technology enables the motherboard to support a higher frequency above 5066mhz when equipped with core 11 processor. Of course, you have to ensure that your memory can run at such a high frequency.
Six 90 degree sataiii interfaces, when m.2_ SATA2 interface will be occupied when m.2sata SSD is used in 2 slots.
Two pciex16 physical slots, where PCI_ E1 is provided with pciex16 bandwidth by CPU, pcie4.0 with core 11 and pcie3.0 with core 10. As for PCI_ E2 and PCI_ E3 is provided by PCH chip.
M. 2 frost Armor
K7 thermal pad
Main m.2_ 1 is quite flexible in terms of equipment. When using the core 11 processor, the main m.2_ 1. The bandwidth is provided by CPU and supports pciegen4.0x4; In the core 10 generation processor, the main m.2_ 1 bandwidth is provided by PCH and supports pciegen3.0x4. At the same time, the main m.2_ 1 slot is also equipped with independent m.2 frost Armor + K7 thermal pad to assist the heat dissipation of SSD.
M.2_ 2 is provided by bandwidth PCH and supports pciegen3.0x4; And in m.2_ 2 slots in use, PCI_ E3 will not work. However, PCI can be allocated in BIOS_ E3 with pciegen3.0x1, m.2_ 2 is equipped with pciegen3.0x2, only m.2_ The performance of SSD is limited.
After dismantling the heat dissipation vest, the more prominent part is the power supply module

Each power supply is equipped with two upper bridge sm4337 (55A) and two lower bridge sm4503 (80A)

To test whether MSI B560M mortar WIFI is awesome, we use Intel’s newest flagship i9-11900K processor. At the same time, in order to suppress processor heat, we selected a product of aio360 for collaborative testing.
Of course, the use of i9-11900k will inevitably open the abt function, first download the latest BIOS from the official website of MSI; The download page also indicates that the 7d17v12, which was launched at the end of April, already supports abt.
Memory we use the Royal halberd ddr4-3600c16, Samsung particles, the constitution is relatively good.
By using hwinfo64 software, the multi-core frequency of the processor is directly above 5.1gh when the power consumption of ABT is turned on on the WiFi motherboard of MSI b560m mortar.
Read the XMP file of Zhiqi memory. The memory frequency runs directly under ddr4-3600c16. At this time, the memory controller runs in 1:1 mode (gear1). The performance data from aida64 memory efficiency test is quite good.
Cinebenchr 11.5, single core score 3.03, multi-core score 26.94
In v-rayi test software, the CPU rendering score is 11252
The test score of pcamrk10 is 5619, which indicates that the performance of the 11th generation core processor is relatively strong.
Finally, let’s test the toaster. BIOS turns on the power wall control by default. FPU presses down the frequency and voltage of the processor when toasting. The full load temperature of the processor is 81 degrees. The power consumption of cpupackage has reached 196w, the voltage is 1.290v, and the frequency has dropped to 4.0ghz. In general, temperature control is OK, and it can provide good performance under high load.
In the FPU baking machine, we use the thermal imager to monitor the temperature of the main board. The highest temperature part is the main power supply VRM position, which is 60 degrees. This is due to the high heat dissipation efficiency of VRM large area radiator.
As a hot selling high cost series motherboard, the latest generation of MSI b560m mortar WiFi is indeed a satisfactory answer for us. No matter in terms of workmanship, materials, heat dissipation, or even expansion, they are much better than the previous generation, and they are also one of several high specification b560 motherboards on the market. Of course, radish and vegetables have their own preferences. For high specifications, the price will definitely be a little more expensive than the general b560. If you want to experience the performance of core 11 processor and memory overclocking, I suggest you consider this motherboard.
