ASUS Strix B360-F Gaming

Intel’s B360 platform is much more affordable than the Z370 flagship, but what are you compromising on for that smaller price tag? Actually, for most users, not much. B360 doesn’t support overclocking, CPU or memory, but, and hardware enthusiasts might need to stop reading here, not than many people actually do this. You loose the ability to run more than 1 GPU from the CPU, but again, only a very small portion of the market is affected. What about storage? Well, a trio of M.2 dives are out, as is RAID functions, but everything that matters to the 99% is still there. ASUS is betting that they can still provide a premium experience known to the Strix family without the cost of all the stuff most people don’t actually use anyway, are they right? We’ll find out!

The main difference between X470 and B450 is the latter’s lack of being able to split the CPU’s PCIe lanes to more than 1 GPU, but that won’t really matter here on an ITX platform with one slot now will it? We recently checked out the ROG Strix X470-I Gaming so today we’ll check out the new baby brother and you can decide which one you should use.
