R5 3600 and X variant are 12 threads part not just 6C6T
Yes, just dig a bit deeper. Looks like 3600 is currently the best bang for buck.

That's kinda weird. Plugged into the fan headers on the mobo right? Why not try plugging the top fan into the CPU fan header.

I seen some reviews of the h510, especially the Gamer Nexus one. It seems that the front intake fans don't help much, just the 2 exhausts in the default configuration is sufficient.

Thanks. something not right with the board... when plug the fan into CPU_OPT it spins....

i'm not alone.

ya the front intake is basically blocked by the unremovable front panel, airflow in will be limited.. so cannot OC much as well haha.

Yea read about this too. Front intake is good if you have a stack of 3.5 HDDs.

My CPU cooler has 2 fans. I thinking of moving the exhaust one to the front just to pull in some air. Since that fan is so close to the rear fan.

Ah okk, noted on this. Thanks.

Hi guys, need some advise and opinions for a motherboard choice. With a budget of around 350 SGD, that is what I'm guessing the MSI MAG x570 Tomahawk Wifi will come around at. I was thinking if you guys know of any other boards (b550/x570) that I can consider. This is to pair with a R5 3600 or 3600x.

Needs:
ATX
USB Type-C front header
Wifi 6 (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax) / Bluetooth 5

Optional:
Aorus Wifi Antenna (love the design and mangetic base)

Here are some of the ones that I've found so far.

A good option is the X570 AORUS PRO WIFI, but thats quite expensive.

Thanks in advance!
Help?
Thanks.

Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) is a good reviewed board that fits your budget.

Sorry, this one does not have the USB-C front header.

You might want to check out the Asrock X570 Taichi as that does address your needs but may burst past budget slightly.

Ah ok thanks.. but yea without the Type C front header and Wifi 6 will give this a pass.

Wow the Taichi is expensive though, I think will just got for the x570 Tomahawk. Thanks again.

The Taichi series is one of the top end products from Asrock, and will cost a lot more than the TUF or the Tomahawk series. Especially the case locally.

If the BIOS is anything like that of my MB, each fan header has its own profile. It can be tagged to e.g. CPU temp even if the fan is not the CPU fan. So if that profile is set to 0 fan speed until CPU temp hits say 60C, then the fan will not move until that CPU temp is reached.
