ASUS ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi
Moving up the stack in terms of price, we move back to ASUS with the ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi which does go for a more stealthy and understated look that we’ve come to expect with the E Gaming lineup of boards over the generations.
It’s not all style over substance though, as the E Gaming WiFi includes some cool features, like the Q-release button for the top PCI-Express slot of which, along with the second slot, are both PCI-Express 5 ready, while the third slot is PCI-Express 4.0 compliant. On top of that, the board has a total of 4 M.2 slots, of which the top two also both support PCI-Express 5 drives, for when they finally hit the market.
For the all-important VRMs, ASUS has gone big using an 18+2 based Digi+ power phase setup, consisting of 110A of continuous power per stage and their infamously named Procool II dual 8-pin power connectors. To keep temperatures at bay, ASUS has opted for two large heatsinks around the CPU socket which are connected by a large heatpipe to help spread the heat around for the very best cooling.
