ASUS ROG STRIX Z670E-E Gaming WIFI review
ROG motherboards give the finest of the X670E, while ROG Strix boards take that core DNA and offer it in more affordable configurations that blend outstanding gaming performance with attractivestyle. The ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi combines form and function. An illuminated acrylic display on the integrated I/O shield makes an impactful statement, while angular accents run across the board's heatsinks alongside characteristic ROG iconography. Comprehensive power and thermal solutions position you to master the latest high-end hardware. Out of the complete Ryzen 7000 series, the X670E chipset is the most premium and feature-rich. These new motherboards are set up to provide the best of the best in terms of performance and connectivity. They are designed for extreme overclocking and support for widespread PCI-E 5.0. The X670E chipset is designed to be paired with high-end hardware because it supports PCI-E Gen 5 SSDs and GPUs, as opposed to SSD-only support on cheaper boards.
Power is delivered to your AMD CPU by 18+2 paired power stages rated at 110A. The hefty and thick combo-sink M.2 heatsink provides a big surface area for cooling to keep PCIe 5.0 SSDs running pleasantly. The accessories set also includes a huge bundled PCIe 5.0 M.2 heatsink. The ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi brings a new wave of conveniences to the building process. In addition to the PCIe Slot Q-Release button, which makes it simple to remove the graphics card, the motherboard includes an integrated power button for performing a pre-test before assembling the entire system. Spare M.2 thermal pads included in the ROG accessory kit ensure that you are prepared to keep future replacement drives running smoothly. The rear IO panel has 13 ports in total, all of which are USB 3.2 compatible. The front USB headers can also support up to nine ports in total, with a few of them being USB 3.2 Gen2x2 and 3.2 Gen1 compatible. Overall, if you need USB ports, this is the board to get. The number of PCI-E 5.0 compliant slots on this board genuinely surprised me. You will notice two PCI-E 5.0 ready x16 slots right away, designed to house the latest GPUs. So, if you plan on purchasing two Nvidia RTX 4090s, this board is compatible. Those looking to purchase a new Gen5 SSD will also have access to two x4 M.2 slots, allowing them to take advantage of the blazing-fast speeds that come with the generational upgrade.

A first in a long time is a new processor socket, which allows for features like DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, and necessitates the purchase of new motherboards. The 600-series chipsets are built into these (X670E, X670, B650E, and B650). All the processors include an integrated RDNA2 GPU and PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 compatibility (E suffix is Extreme). In this review, we'll look at the Ryzen 7 7700X in combination with the Asus ROG STRIX Z670E-E Gaming WIFI.
