Huge Disappointment: ASRock Z490 Velocita Motherboard PCB Review

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

Hey guys build Zoid here from actually hardcore overclocking and today we're gonna be taking a look at the as Roxy 490 phantom gaming velocity' a motherboard that is both pretty interesting and extremely disappointing so when I first saw this motherboard I

Got really excited cuz I was like oh cool we're gonna have a 200 H dollar motherboard with a post code that's gonna be great for like budget overclocking and then a couple days later I saw the retail price on new AG

And the board is 260 dollars my disappointment was immeasurable however my day was not ruined because luckily there are plenty of other better Z 490 motherboards at lower prices equal prices higher prices before that this

Video is brought to you by gigabyte – or srt X xx atti xtreme the RT x 28 e TI xtreme is built with a triple axial cooling solution and ready for anyone interested in intermediate GPU overclocking although it's also up for

Gaming out of the box the gigabyte 28 e TI can reach the higher performance range required to play games at frame rates at and Beyond 144 FPS couples particularly well with games like Call of Duty warzone Rainbow six siege and

Other competitive FP assets gigabytes extreme is built to be a looker for system builders going for extra visual flair learn more at the link in the description below like basically I can't think of a single reason why you'd buy

This board when you can get basically the entire feature actually you can get better motherboards with better feature sets better power to look basically better everything except the postcode like it the only reason to buy this

Motherboard is the postcode because everything out and maybe the eight SATA ports because everything else you can get better or cheaper from somebody else and the thing is the the postcode like Isle of postcodes but it I'd also like I

Like my postcode attached to a good motherboard and I can live with a good mother board that has debug LEDs this is all like this is trash I just feel like it's about $60.00 overpriced so let's get into it so you know pointed out the

Postcode already you also get a power and reset button note that those like to most people these are completely pointless I like them because I use test benches but yeah so most people those are completely pointless in the

Rear i/o we get two and a half gig Realtek over here one gig Intel so this is actually kind of a unique feature for this this price range there's just one problem the MSI z 490 tomahawk exists and it has dual LAN and it's like $190

Yeah it also has a better vrm but like you know that's it used to be that asrock offered like really good value like good performance $4 motherboards for Z 490 it seems like they've just decided that they don't care at all and

They're just putting out motherboards where it's like well this is disappointing speaking of disappointing this is an ATX motherboard with the USB port configuration of an ITX motherboard and

It's not like they ran out of space I guess you know stacking your DisplayPort and HDMI port is just way too expensive or something also you'll notice that the board has a position for Wi-Fi that's not populated most motherboards in this

Price range come with Wi-Fi just that's a standard feature at 250 dollars you're like I don't like Wi-Fi I don't see the point of having Wi-Fi like personally I'd prefer my motherboard to be ten dollars cheaper and without the Wi-Fi

But this is two hundred and sixty dollars just the same as all the other boards with Wi-Fi but it doesn't have Wi-Fi so you're not saving any money by not getting the Wi-Fi you're just fading like you're just not getting it that's

Another disappointment it's also worth noting that basically all of the other motherboards at this price range from the other manufacturers have BIOS flashback functionality and one form or another this doesn't because you know

Why would it have that but you know it gets better the list of things this motherboard doesn't do just keeps increasing so most motherboards at around 250 dollars will give you 3 16x PCIe slots

Which is actually pretty expensive to do because the way that's done so here what we have is we have this top PCIe slot that's 16x and that's just connected directly to your CPU this PCIe slot down here is x4 and connected to the chipset

So for you know like if you have a big heat sink and you can't fit your GPU into this PCIe slot you're really screwed with this motherboard though admittedly as well cry Crimmins that you use this motherboard with water cooling

I'd recommend you just don't use this motherboard at all like you know because it's just so disappointing in so many ways but anyway so with the PCIe configuration so you only get to 16 X slots and this is a

Huge cost saving for asrock on for two reasons one you'll notice that we have an AMD crossfire logo here but there's no SLI logo and the reason why there's no SLI logo is you can't run SLI through the chipset and because you can't run

SLI through the chipset as Waka doesn't have to pay nvidia for an SLI license fund in fact the board vendor has to pay in video for having SLI support like having their motherboard supported by SLI essentially if Nvidia drivers detect

That you're on a motherboard that doesn't have an SLI license it won't allow you to enable SLI because like it's Nvidia like or did you expect that SLI would just work because you have enough PCIe slots for it on the other

Hand crossfire just kind of works on everything that has at least 2 X 4 PCIe slots not that that's a great idea running crossfire through a chipset tends to run like absolute garbage because I've done it so I know like that

Like that's my experience with that so I wouldn't recommend it but yeah azrog does you know like the support a crossfire by default EVGA supports crossfire and it's not because EVGA wants to support crossfire they just

Kind of don't have a choice on that so yeah however obviously also makes AMD GPUs so it makes sense that they would advertise crossfire support one of the cost savings is just like not having an SLI license the other big cost-saving

Thing is the way the third PCIe slot on all the multiple other motherboards is implemented is you take this 16 like you take that 16x from your CPU and you take 8x of that and shove it into a bunch of PCIe 4.0 switches you might be like why

Would you use PCIe 4.0 switches when 10th gen doesn't support PCIe 4.0 yeah well the reasoning is that 11th gen does support PCIe 4.0 so when 11th gen comes out the motherboard has to be PCIe 4.0 compatible and so asus doesn't advertise

PCIe 4.0 compatibility but as far as I know basically everybody else has PCIe 4.0 compatibility so I would assume ASIS just like Asus has it they're just not talking about it or they don't have it and they're actually using pcie

Switches which is going to be a very nasty surprise for somebody who tries to install their 11th gen CPU into their high-end asus motherboard when they realize it forces it down to 3.0 but I doubt that's actually happening I'm

Assuming they're using PCIe 4.0 switches and just not talking about it but anyway asrock here well well they're not doing this so they don't need the pci u 4.0 switches which are relatively expensive and they also don't need the pci u 4.0

Read drivers which are also relatively expensive so asrock saves money on the sli license they save money on the switches and the redriver z' and at this point it's like so is there anything like does this board actually add

Anything because so far we have a big list of things that other motherboards have and this motherboard doesn't have well I mean it doesn't get better so let's let's talk about the power delivery right because you'd be hoping

So assuming like everything else on this motherboard is kind of cut down is one way to put it right so you'd hope maybe just maybe they took all of those cost savings and put them into a better power delivery system well as ROC does

Advertise this as a 13 phase and technically speaking it is a 13 phase there's just one problem with that these two phases over here are for the I GPU so if you have a f-series CPU these literally don't do anything if you're

Not using the I GPU for quick sync they also don't do anything and even if you are using the IGP for quick sync you probably don't need two phases of a GPU power to do it but you know that's fine so like most

Other motherboards that support I GPU power will just give you a single phase just so that you can use QuickSync if you want to cuz realistically you're probably not using the IGP like you're not gonna overclock the eye

GPU the eye GPU does not pull a lot of power it doesn't need two phases as well gives you this this lovely two phase eye GPU vrm then down here we have a single phase system agent vrm which is standard because you do need a actual phase 4

System agent so that's nothing new but everybody does that above that we have an i/o and they're not counting that into the 13 because this is 2 this is 1 and then this right here the V core portion is 10 phases and it is actually

10 phases because they are using the is l69 the 69 two six nine voltage controller and this controller is actually really cool it goes all the way up to twelve phases and here it's running in a ten plus one and plus one

Configuration that plus one for you know the AI GPU goes into a doubler on the back of the board so that then goes into a times two so that's how they get the two phases of AI GPU I would have argued they could have not bothered with that

And well it wouldn't have ultimately changed that I think as the board is still overpriced so you know goes into a times two so the V Corps is actually a true ten phase now that sounds kind of impressive until you consider the fact

That gigabyte will offer you a true twelve phase V core vrm for $200 and at around the price of the this board they offer still a twelve phase V core vrm and then also above this like gigabyte basically from $200 to $300 they're

Using the same vrm with minor design adjustments but the entire time it's a twelve phase MSI will at this price point I think they actually have a twelve phase so you could get a twelve phase from MSI or you could get a six

Phase from Asus where Asus likes to put to power stages in parallel in each phase so functionally the asus motherboard still has more power handling capacity than this board right here because this is a ten phase and

It's not like asrock is using some extra special power stages that nobody else is using at this price point because these chips right here are just bog standard sort of si c63 to a 50 amp dr mas parts which basically everyone is using

Because they're very cost effective even the vrm is not real like it's at this price point it's just straight-up kind of the weakest vrm you can get in terms of raw current handling capability in terms of transient response

The thing is asus really go out of their way to optimize transient response asus essentially designs around the low phase count gigabyte at this price point gives you a whole bunch of extra tantalum capacitors jammed into the CPU socket

Which I'll rock is kind of doing they have these two little tantalum capacitors here but it's nothing compared to what like gigabyte is doing and then MSI's VRM is actually it looks very standard but I've

Also in the past been actually in like on MSI motherboards I've actually tested like that they've you know performed quite well so from a transient response perspective I do not think this is gonna be the best performing board I don't

Think it'll be significantly worse than anything else around this price point I just doubt it's gonna get any Awards okay so so you have weaker power delivery and in terms of voltage regulation it really doesn't seem to be

Doing anything particularly special I mean even inside the CPU socket cavity we're just looking at a very large array of Oh 603 multi-layer ceramic capacitors which I have a sneaking suspicion actually don't work very well because

Well at least on Z 391 I was doing transient response testing there was a bunch of other boards which had like really packed CPU sockets essentially this and they didn't really correlate with which motherboards were getting the

Better like getting the best measurements so I have a sneaking suspicion that the CPU socket just has to him too much impedance for this to actually be effective but yeah there's nothing really wrong with it this is

Standard essentially so nothing really special in in any way shape or form here in terms of the power delivery I mean the you know like compared to Z 390 the 10 phase is cool but we're you know X 570 happened and Z Z 490 like you can

Get 12 phase V RMS on a bunch of boards so yeah 10 phase not really that special let's talk about the power efficient like power handling capacity here because it's a 10 phase with these 50 amp gr most components and I forgot to

Include the a but the the efficiency that we're going to be looking at roughly for 1.2 volts output voltage 500 kilohertz switching frequency so 500 killer switching frequency is just what the power stages are spectat

So that's what they're they'll I assume that's what they run at default because most motherboards using these will actually run them at their default speed so 1.2 volts 500 kilohertz switching frequency you're going to be looking at

This VR I'm being like pushing 200 amps through the vrm to the seat you this vrm is probably going to produce about 23 watts of heat which is not actually that bad but it's not exactly amazing pushing 250 amps you'll

Be looking at about 35 watts of heat which definitely with good heat sinks that can be dealt with it's just that the other motherboards in this price range have better power delivery so you know you could just have smaller heat

Sinks and a better vrm instead or then going up to 300 amps output this vrm will produce about 49 watts of heat which this is when you start kneading like serious amounts of air flow and then 400 amps output the vrm is going to

Be producing probably around 80 watts of heat which basically is like give up like don't don't even try to do that that is way too much heat unless you plan to attach like a CPU cooler to your vrm now you might notice that I've

Started at already 200 amps so if you're overclocking the 10th gen CPUs a 10 900k can comfortably go between these two figures so 270 amps is actually very doable on a 10 I on 10 900k assuming that you have a large enough cooling

System 250 amps is straight-up easy to hit you can do that on an AIO cooler you don't even need a custom loop so essentially for a 10 900k you want good efficiency at like 250 to 300 amps that's kind of the target for a 10 900

Kate and 700 K you're looking at sort of 200 to 250 amps again you can go past 250 on the type of 10 700 K as well the cooling requirements are still like it's not very practical for a 10 700 K so 10 700 K is gonna be sort of like 200 to

250 amps and the 10 600 K you can get up to around 200 amps if you're really pushing the CPU like so that's why I started 200 amps it also does mean that with a 10 900k having the dual 8 pins is actually a good idea if you're on a 10

700 K you don't need to plug in both both 8 pins you can basically ignore this one and even if you're on a 10-9 100 k asrock is using the high current variant of this connector so each of these can actually do at least 480 watts

With the 10900 k you could actually get away with the single 8-pin it's just that you know there's no like if you have the option to plug in both of them you should definitely won't hurt anything and if

You have the option to plug in like you know eight well eight plus four you can do that because the eight pin power connector actually like is designed to be for four pin connectors together so if you just have an extra four pin you

Can still plug that into the into the second eight pin but yeah like if you have a standard current eight pin power connector like say what MSI is using that's a three hundred and eighty four walk connector you can max that out i've

Actually measured a ten 900k pulling over four hundred watts through the eight pin while tête like while overclocking so yeah the dual aprons are actually not a bad idea that that's actually a good good design

Decision by asrock right there not that they made many of those on this motherboard in general so yeah the vrm efficiency here is is not exactly spectacular for a ten 900k like the thing is as rock is essentially cheating

With their cooling system which we'll get to not really a fan of the vrm efficiency here another into sort of interesting fact about the the design of this this power delivery is that there's a lot of input filtering capacitors like

All of this is actually kind of ridiculous okay well it actually ends about therefore for the V chord like this down here is for these two phases and they're not connected to the eight pin power

Connectors like this is a lot of input filtering that this motherboard comes with and the reason why it has so much input filtering is for some reason asrock decided that they don't want to have an input filtering inductor so

Essentially it looks like the solution was we're just gonna mash capacitors onto this until there's no problem with large transient loads sort of reaching back to the power supply so this actually like doing what they've done

Here like especially these capacitors up here those are tantalum polymer capacitors those are not cheap so this is actually kind of expensive but this looks like something as walked into themselves and I really doubt it has any

Benefits for actual overclocking because like just general speaking like this is this is good for like putting less load on your power supply or well if you had an input filtering inductor that would also

Reduce the load on your power supply like essentially input filtering capacitors are no where as am nowhere near as important as the output filtering capacitors and it's not like as rocks doing anything particularly

Wrong there it's just that yeah it's kind of interesting that they decided to not have an input filtering inductor instead instead went with all of these input filtering capacitors because normally

You'd have fewer input capacitors and like elite like one input inductor whereas as rock seems to have gone like okay no no inductor just capacitors and yeah I don't think that actually has any advantages but you just have to measure

With an oscilloscope the thing is I keep thinking back to the fact that at least is III 90 there was basically a hard limit to get how good your voltage regulation could be and it was again not really influenced by like input

Filtering capacitor configuration that much either so I think they could have done that cheaper but considering the price of the motherboard I don't think that was much of a concern and anyway since I already you know since since

Since we're already on the topic of capacitors as Wallach is using FP 12 K capacitors so those are niche econ 12,000 our aluminum polymer through-hole capacitors and the cool thing is well they're rated for 12,000 hours at 105

Degrees which is the highest endurance rating I am aware of being used on a motherboard most other board vendors around this price point you're going to be looking at 10,000 hour capacitors also from an itchy con the thing is is

Just like your capacitor lifespan increases dramatically the cooler you run them so if you just have a better like more efficient vrm with a better cool it like better heat sinks that stops being a concern as well also the

The thing with the capacitor lifespans is aluminum polymers they don't dry up or die like they don't outright die after the end of 10,000 hours at 105 degrees they just get slightly worse at doing their job as capacitors so they

Can still go on for you know several many thousands of hours more there just less effective than when they were new so that's one of the main reasons why they're so popular they don't really die they just kind of get worse at being

Capacitors and they're not gonna like short well unless you like you can overload them to the point of short-circuiting but generally speaking that's not gonna have like you'd have to like wire them wrong like that's not

Like that's not a concern for from other board applications so you know as walk has slightly higher endurance rated capacitors on this board that's I guess the kind of the only thing that is better on this board than all the other

Motherboards in this price range now how did a stock solve the slight like the somewhat less efficient higher thermal density vrm because the other thing with a low phase count or a low power stage count if you're aces cuz asus doesn't go

Past eight phases if you have a low power stage account one of the problems is that all of the heat you're vrm is producing is concentrated in fewer components therefore those components end up running hotter not only do you

Have the effect of like lower efficiency because you have less power handling capacity and the power stages the power stages that you do have run hotter because there's less of them so you're sort of the heating effect is doubled

Because it's worse because of the efficiency worse because of the low flow component count now if we look at the cooling system we can see that as Rach chose the sort of the lazy low effort solution to fixing your thermal issues

Which is at a fan but you know like the funny thing is the first famine like I'm not sure which at fan they added first but yeah they added three fans because you know obviously more fans more better except like this is the like the thing I

Really dislike about this heatsink design is the fact that they used three fans for doing something that could have been achieved with one because essentially like their heatsink looks like an l-shape right so if you just

Stick a fan right here and then have the airflow channels sort of like that you can actually have one fan push air flow over the entire vrm heatsink surface area instead of this abomination that uses up to

Freaking fan headers that are proprietary connectors so like they are just why would you do this why don't like a design a better vrm B design a better heat sink for said VRM don't just whack fans on to your low

Efficiency vrm with your miserable little heatsink on it oh and it you know it actually gets better because not only not only did they add three fans they then realize that fans look ugly so you've also got a lovely air flow

Restrictor plate that goes over this fan right here I can't believe it what the hell if this board was $200 I'd get having three fans because designing a you know high efficiency low thermal density low-cost vrm that's difficult

Okay that's actually difficult and in that scenario if your efficiency is bad you know spending a dollar or two on a fan is a great way of fixing thermal issues this is a two hundred and sixty dollar motherboard they're not paying

For PCIe switches they're not paying for an SLI license they're not for like they have less USB ports than everybody else there's no Wi-Fi on this there's no BIOS flash back on this and apparently all of that was used to purchase a postcode and

Three unnecessary Fanta and three fans for the vrm also this this abomination of a fan header right here this is stupid like they should have used standard fan headers so that let's say like I don't

Know maybe you are running a ten 600 K because with the 10 600 K you don't actually need the fans at all right like again I'm assuming this motherboard was actually $200 but it isn't so don't buy this for it 10 600 k but uh let's say

You wanted like let's say you were running this motherboard without like a mega overclock and and you know not pulling that much power through it so your view arm thermals are good or maybe your carry case airflow is just good in

The first place and so you don't need the extra fans that as rocker put on the bloody board well in if they had had any foresight you could have had two extra fan headers to use for your case fans or radiant you know for your case on the

Board but instead they go and use these three pin proprietary connectors so that you essentially have no choice but to use like you can't just wait those fan headers over to a better more useful fan and it's just like like this

Is stupid this is completely ridiculous like why would you design a board like this like this is completely at this price point this is completely unacceptable as far as I'm concerned like this has to be the

Worst bore like the most disappointing motherboard on Z 490 for me because one you get like you get less everything than any other motherboard in this price range you get less vrm you get work like the erm thermal solution is like the

Thing is the fans are gonna make this VR em run ridiculously cool like there's I have no doubts about the fact that this VR M is gonna be able to kick out 35 watts of heat and run cooler than every other vrm on the market mostly because

Unlike everybody else's vrm this one is going to be making noise from airflow the other ones are probably just going to be making coil whine but this one's gonna be making coil whine and airflow noise so you know it's still gonna be

Louder like don't do this like just don't like motherboard like fans should be used out of necessity they shouldn't be the first choice and they certainly shouldn't be used like why freaking three of them three three with like

Furred thing that could have been done with one I despise the the power delivery design of this motherboard this is like this belongs on a $200 board for some reason it's found its way on a 260 dollar board and I have no idea what

They're doing at asrock it used to be the asrock motherboards were you know good like performance per dollar and then you just had to live with the fact that the BIOS was kind of clunky this motherboard is just bad in every way I

Can think of except like like ultimately if you measure the VR I'm thermals yeah it's gonna run cool it has fans if you put a five-dollar fan on a gigabyte motherboard in this price range it's also gonna run ridiculously cool if you

Do that to an msi board it's gonna run ridiculously cool if you do that too literally if you take a $200 board and buy a $5 fan it's gonna run just as cool as this thing this is lazy design you don't put fans on your inefficient

Vrm at 260 dollars at 150 like 100 105 t $200 sure I could live with that those are low-cost motherboards you can't afford to use proper VRMs but this no this absolutely no other things about this board so now that I've had my

Little rant about the power delivery here memory vrm is the classic standard asrock overkill luckily this doesn't actually do anything so it's not a good reason to buy the board so this is a two-phase memory vrm which has rock

Really like it's an actual two-phase there's a lot of lower cheaper as rocker boards where you have two phases worth of components but one actual phase for your memory the RM here we actually have a two-phase memory the RM it's

Controlled by this chip over here which that's AUP what do my notes say one six force no seven for P and yeah that's a two phase voltage controller we've got two dual n fats so each MOSFET like you have a low side

And a high side MOSFET built into one chip the controller drives those directly those are Sinnoh power sm7 three for one dual and fats that's the same dual infant that's also used in the VCC i/o phase over there oh and the VCCS

A and VCC and I GPU phases also use the 50 amp gr most parts anyway so you know two phase memory power now in all of my memory overclocking experience two phase memory power doesn't do anything it's not about how you power your ddr4 it's

Much more about what you do with your actual memory trace layout between the CPU socket and the memory sticks and to that extent we can't see anything which is a good thing we can't see any memory traces because asrock has put ground

Shields over all of the well the important traces because we do have all of this right here but to my understanding these are for signals that are less sensitive than the traces that run through this area I've not actually

Ever bothered to check a pin out of a dim Slauson this is not something I'm that interested in well actually no I've checked it and then I promptly forgot what it looked like so yeah anyway the ground shields are good

Though because they help with essentially blocking EMI from getting to the memory traces and potentially optimizing the impedance of the memory traces so yeah like gigabyte Z 490 motherboards in this and like actually

Gigabyte Z 490 motherboards also do this i'm asus is doing I don't know what Asus is doing with their traces MSI is using a completely unique topology style that will probably cover in a different video but yeah like having ground shields over

The memory traces is standard for a lot of the x5 70 motherboards it's also going to be featured on a lot of B 550 motherboards so this works this actually helps with high frequency like high memory clock speeds and that kind of

Thing that's part of the topology the other part of the topology is this is a daisy chain so essentially and the motherboard is a six layer PCB so we've got a six layer shielded daisy chain memory topology so that means these two

DIMM slots are priority for you know to dim overclocking four dims for z 490 like I'm not sure how it is on asrock but in my experience at least with other Z 490 motherboards for dims actually work just fine on daisy chains even

Above 4000 megahertz so it doesn't have as much of a negative impact as I assume a lot of people expect it like would assume it would have like I've even had 4400 work on a daisy chain it's just that the timings were really loose so it

Wasn't really worth running you know we've got a six-hour shielded daisy chain topology here which is pretty Stanton's for six layered daisy chain topologies on Anzhi 490 so gigabytes also doing shielded daisy chains MSI is

Doing like tabbed daisy chains and asus is doing I don't know what because they like Isis calls their memory topology optimum something and it's like that doesn't actually tell you what they're doing so it's like well that's cool

Marketing term guys I just have no idea what that actually means as Roxette claims that they're capable of doing speeds up to 4600 plus which is kind of on the low side for Z 490 motherboards at the same time they might actually

Just be more realistic than some of the other vendors some of the other vendors often will advertise the speeds where it's like there's very few CPUs that'll actually be able to sustain them and 4600 is definitely like it's not

Outlandish but on the other hand if as Rock is being as optimistic as you know historically motherboard vendors tend to be with their memory speeds then this is about 200 megahertz too high because

Generally if a motherboard is spected like it can do 4,800 realistically it can run 4,600 without having like a golden CPU if a motherboard expected to do 5 gigahertz realistically is probably going to do 4,800 so that kind of thing

Is is also a concern so yeah and 4600 is kind of on the low side so I'm hoping that they're just being realistic instead of they actually have a worst apology than everybody else does because that's the other way that you end up

With a hot lower you know lower speed specification yeah that is the Z 490 phantom gaming velocity' it's 260 dollars for a motherboard that you know I would pay 200 for it I wouldn't pay 260 for it like that's it that's

Essentially everything I have to say about it because like there there's just like the only thing that's really special about this board is the post code and then maybe the 8 SATA ports right but as far as I can tell most

People care more about having a bunch of em dealt to slots more so than they care about having a bunch of SATA ports so yeah ultimately like and also I think there might be other options for eight SATA ports but

And they're probably a draw as well so at that point I guess you know yeah that might be a feature you might want but yeah overall I am very much not a fan of this month or the board and I am definitely not a fan of all of the fans

So yeah thank you for watching like share subscribe leave any comments questions suggestions down in the comment section below and if you'd like to support gamers Nexus we've got a patreon there's a link to that down in

The description below there's also store dog gamers Nexus dotnet if you'd like to pick up any gamers Nexus merch like Mouse pants well actually those are sold out as far as I know like shirts and other stuff you know youtuber merch
