Tested: Three Rocket Lake Z590 Overclocking Motherboards Duke it Out for Dominance

Motherboard partners make boards in all shapes, sizes, and purposes. From Mini-ITX to E-ATX and budget offerings to flagships, there is likely something for every build type and budget. Today we’re focusing on Intel Z590 boards designed primarily for overclocking. 

All of the tested boards include some of the most capable VRMs for the platform, only two slots for DRAM, and a slew of buttons and switches designed to make overclocking–especially when using sub-ambient cooling–easier. That said, these boards are also great for more general-purpose builds, but at a significant premium. Specifically, we’ll be looking at the ASRock Z590 OC Formula ($579.99), Asus’ ROG Maximus XIII Apex ($599.99), and the Gigabyte Aorus Tachyon ($529.99), pitting them against each other in our testing environment.
