Close-Up Comparison

Just in case you're not as keen eyed as some, the Strix is going to be the top image of the pair, with the Prime beneath. Straight away we have a way to tell the two apart. The Strix B560-A runs with a single 8pin ATX 12V, whilst the Prime not only has an 8+4 12V arrangement but also has a fan header tucked away in this corner.

The top right has the Z590 Prime being arranged much more in a way that we're used to, with the CPU fan headers above the DIMM slots instead of above the top heatsink as they are on the Strix. Otherwise with the same placement of the AURA headers it's clear the main notes are the same.

Front panel USB are the same on both the Strix and Prime. One Type-C and one Type-A. Worth noting that this isn't an arrangement unique to these two motherboards of course, just when we're checking out similarities they stand out a bit more than normal.

We know that some of you might be slightly disbelieving of the identikit nature of the two designs, but this pair of photographs more than any other should give you pause. Normally SATA ports are stacked in pairs so the arrangement of six would be 3x2. Here both the Prime and Strix have 6x1. Remember this is a Z590 and B560 - already different chipsets - whilst one is the plain ASUS Prime and the other part of the Republic of Gamers Strix brand.

It's a no-brainer - B550 aand a R5 5600X. Strewth! Would you want to be laughed at by console owners? :-)Quote

The B560 and an 11400 is actually better value than the B550/5600x angle.

Its a strange time when Intel win the budget angleQuote

In the niche "Gaming; just gaming" market: I concede. Plus I do like the white highlighting and white I/O sheild. You can do so much more with AMD though; and it doesn't matter how much you save towards a better graphics card on account it'll be twelve month before you can actually buy such a thing.Quote

You seriously think the 11400 falls short if you do occasional content creation work for example?Quote
