Our stress test consists of an Aida64 system stability test with a Cinebench R20 multi-core render loop running for one hour. We then measured the VRM temperatures as well as the back-side of the PCB using our K-type thermometer. After one hour’s worth of stress test, we only recorded a peak temp of 52°C – the lowest so far. Though it’s worth noting that the Z590 Steel Legend’s default setting isn’t as aggressive compared to ASUS and Gigabyte’s profiles.
ASRock Z590 Steel Legend WiFi 6E Motherboard Review – Low Priced, Feature Packed
All in all, the ASRock Z590 Steel Legend WiFi 6E is a well-rounded motherboard that packs impressive features at an affordable price of Php 10,200. The dominant white and camo-like design is arguably one of the best white-colored motherboards, not to mention it has one of the brightest RGB lighting I've seen in a motherboard. The ASRock Z590 Steel Legend WiFi 6E offers more than the basics of a Z590 motherboard with cherry-on-top features that you would only normally see in flagship motherboards while having an attractive design and competitive price. If you're in the market for an affordable Z590 motherboard that can take advantage of the latest Intel 11th gen processors(even the i9 11900K), then the ASRock Z590 Steel Legend is a great bargain that you shouldn't miss.
