ROG Strix X670E F Gaming WiFi

In addition to the high-end ROG Hero, ASUS mainstream series motherboards, how can ROG Strix be missing? After AMD updated the Ryzen 7000 series processors this time, ASUS launched the ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi motherboard for the mainstream market. The basic PCIe 5.0 slots are well filled, and the rear I/O USB ports are also given 3 Type-C and 7 Type-A should be a good choice for mainstream players who do not pursue stacking.

ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi motherboard out of the box

This time the X670E series motherboards, ASUS only launched X670E-I, X670E-A, X670E-F, and X670E-E in the ROG Strix series this time, and the differences among the three ATX motherboards are not big. The ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi is an intermediate level, with slightly fewer power supply phases than the X670E-E and the same 16+2 phases as the X670E-A.

In the rear I/O expansion part, ROG Strix X670E-F provides 3 Type-C and 7 Type-A, one more Type-C and one less Type-A than X670E-A, and compared with X670E-E There are two Type-A missing, and the difference between them, players can choose between three motherboards according to their I/O needs.

As for the PCIe slot part, since the AMD 7000 series CPU channels are filled directly, 28 channels are provided to the PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and 2 PCIe 5.0 x4 M in addition to the 4 channels connected to the chipset. .2 slots, while the chipset is provided with 2 additional PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots and 4 SATA 6Gbps slots. This part is basically the same for the three motherboards.

There are product features on the back of the box.
Accessories include a Wi-Fi antenna, M.2 Q-Latch accessories, SATA cable and manual, etc.

This new generation of ROG Strix is ​​more low-key than the previous generation regarding motherboard appearance design. However, the overall design still has a good three-dimensional effect through the new paint and shape design. On the top of the entire heat dissipation armor, VRM The heat sink is connected between the upper and side modules with heat pipes so that the entire VRM power supply area can obtain better heat dissipation.

16+2 phase digital power supply design, X670E chipset

On half of the mainboard, you can see that the CPU socket part uses the AM5 socket. Since this generation of Ryzen 7000 series processors is replaced with LGA packages, the socket part is similar to the Intel processor socket. It is similar, but you can see that the AM4 radiator clip is still used on the top and bottom of the slot. Still, since the bottom plate and the processor clip are shared, players who upgrade the platform and use the old radiator should confirm whether they need to replace the AM5 dedicated radiator.

You can see the same type of heat sink buckle as AM4 on the top and bottom of the AM5 slot.

On the side of the slot, you can see that ROG Strix X670E-F has a 16+2 phase digital power supply design, the controller part uses an ASP2206 control chip, and the MOSFET part uses 90A MPS2215 MOSFET.

The X670 chipset is a group of 2 chips in the lower part of the chipset. Asustek designed the ROG Strix X670E-F to adopt symmetrical placement on the left and right, and it is covered by a large heat sink. Under this design, the second M.2 slot is moved down, and the installation and heat dissipation are less affected by the graphics card.

After removing the heat sink, you can see the X670 chipset.

The memory part only supports DDR5 in this generation of AMD Ryzen 7000 series. In addition to supporting overclocking of at least 6400 MHz on the ROG Strix X670E-F motherboard, ASUS also provides ASUS enhanced memory profiles in Bios (in Bios Abbreviated as AEMP), AI overclocking function is specially designed for memory, allowing players to easily obtain stronger memory performance when using memory without EXPO or XMP profiles.

There are 4 DDR5 memory slots, with the recommended slots marked on the side.
The memory slot part adopts the Q-DIMM slot design with a one-sided buckle.

PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, 4 x M.2 slots

Since the Ryzen 7000 series processors provide 28 PCIe channels this time, after deducting the 4 channels assigned to the chipset, there are still 24 PCIe 5.0 channels. In ROG Strix, In the design of X670E-F, the 16 PCIe 5.0 channels provided by the processor are separately provided to the first PCIe slot, and the slot part is reinforced with metal armor, and there are PCIe 4.0 x1 slots provided by the chipset and PCIe 4.0 x4 slot.

From top to bottom, the list of PCIe slots is PCIe 5.0 x16 slots for the CPU, PCIe 4.0 x1 slots, and PCIe 4.0 x4 slots for the chipset.
The PCIe 5.0 x16 slot is covered with metal armor and supports the first-generation Q-RELEASE quick-release system. The buckle will not open by itself, and the buckle must be opened before installation.

The PCIe channels provided by the other 8 processors are assigned to two PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slots, and the other chipset is also given to 2 PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots and 4 SATA 6 Gbps Slots. The basic storage part can meet the needs of most players.

The first PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slot on the top is equipped with heat sinks covered up and down.
The three M.2 slots below share a large heat sink. The upper right corner is the second PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 slot, and the bottom is PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots.

USB port, 2.5GbE wired network, Wi-Fi 6E wireless network

In the expansion part, ROG Strix X670E-F provides up to 19 USB ports. Up to 12 ports in the rear I/O part Ports, of which 3 Type-C ports are USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 ports and 2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, while 9 Type-A ports are 7 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports, and the motherboard also provides 1 USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-E slot, 1 USB 3.2 Gen 1 19-pin slot and 2 USB 2.0 9-Pin slots, Up to 7 additional USB ports can be provided.

Summary of ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi Motherboard


This generation has a lot of channels on the X670E, so you can also see that the expansion part is almost full on the ROG Strix series. Otherwise, the ROG Strix X670E-F that I started this time provides 12 USB ports on the rear I/O, and the network also provides 2.5 GbE Ethernet and Wifi 6 wireless network, and of course, PCIe 5.0 slots and 4 M.2 slots are basically enough for most players.

As for the exterior part, the overall armor is fully covered, but there is still no metal back plate after breaking through 10,000, which is a bit disappointing. In addition, the light-emitting part only has a light-emitting light board in the rear I/O area this time, which may be considering the current situation. Graphics cards are getting thicker and thicker, so there is no light-emitting design on the lower part of the motherboard. Of course, there are also 3 ARGB connectors and one RGB connector on the top and bottom, so players can use all the light-emitting accessories on the case to let the motherboard control the lighting effects.

In the final price part, the ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi mainboard came to 13,990 TWD, while the price of all ROG Strix X670E models exceeded 10,000 yuan. Still, relatively good scalability can be obtained, but if players feel that the budget is insufficient, The X670E may only be able to choose the TUF Gaming series or the B650E/B650 motherboard.
