Test Setup

We test X570 motherboards using AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X CPU along with 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair 3,466MHz Vengeance Pro RGB DDR4 memory. We're also using an EK Water Blocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm CPU cooler and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition. To test the M.2 PCIe 4.0 capabilities we're using the  2TB Aorus NVMe Gen4 SSD and, where possible, using the motherboard's own heatsinks to cool it to obtain both speed and SSD temperatures.

Test System

  • CPU AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
  • Memory 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3,466MHz DDR4
  • Graphics card Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition
  • PSU Corsair RM850i
  • SSD Samsung 970 Evo 2TB (OS); Aorus NVMe Gen4 SSD 2TB (speed/thermal testing)
  • CPU cooler EK Water Blocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm
  • Operating system Windows 10 64-bit
