Disclosure: The B360 Gaming 3 WIFI motherboard and the Core i3 8350K is loaned by AORUS

Let’s talk about the new Intel chipsets- B360 and the H370

Finally, Intel releases lower-budget chipsets for the 8th generation Coffee Lake CPUs. I am reviewing the B360 chipset motherboard from AORUS, but it makes sense to know what H370 and B360 provide in comparison with Z370. It will be more interesting to see the difference in purchase decisions as AMD Ryzen has its chipset motherboards available at good pricing with overclocking features on the B350 chipset.

Technically, you may compare the AMD A320 with the Intel B360. But it shares similarities with the AMD B350 chipset naming. Since motherboard manufacturers go over the top with gaming labelled motherboards, Intel B360 motherboards with such feature sets should be more accessible to the mass.

There are some obvious downgrades- lesser PCIe lanes, USB ports, M.2 ports for storage. But the Intel H370 and B360 chipsets have two feature sets- native USB 3.1 Gen 2 support and CNVi. Strange to see this isn’t implemented on the Z370 chipset, but it is nice to see something additional for a reasonably accessible choice. USB 3.1 Gen 2 native support ensures future-ready support, seeing that eventually many devices including smartphones will go towards Type C.

About the CNVi…

CNVi is an exciting addition. Typically, an M.2 WiFi card will be made by third-party manufacturers, or buy Intel bundled with some motherboard manufacturers. A CNVi implementation changes that as some of its functions are on the motherboard chipset. Going by the theoretical numbers, the CNVi Wireless Wave2 802.11 ac 2×2 wireless adapters provide up to 1733 Mbps data rate and supports MU-MIMO. As of now, it is unclear if CNVi compatible modules will be cheaper. It does include Bluetooth 5.0 function, therefore giving an all-rounder native support with many wireless techs, including IoT. This is more incredible as this is included in the B360 chipset.

There are variants in CNVi wireless adapters. Intel has three of them. The Wireless AC-9461 and 9462 do not support MU-MIMO and Wave 2 speeds. But you do get standard 802.11 AC speeds whose theoretical data rates are up to Mbps. The CNVi module that does include both is the Intel Wireless-AC 9560.

The AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WiFI comes with the Intel WiFi-AC 9560 CNVi module, that supports Wave 2 speeds with 2×2 AC, BT 5.0 and MU-MIMO.

BUT NO OVERCLOCKING!

Unlike the top two Ryzen chipsets, there is an absence of CPU and memory overclocking in its H370 and B360 chipsets. Intel does have some exclusive features, such as the CNVi native support, Optane memory and IRST.

The B360 chipset otherwise looks pretty neat for many users who wouldn’t get into overclocking, but need the feature set that mid-end chipsets would offer. It does have all six SATA III ports, adequate USB 3.0 ports and 3.1 support. For such users, a single M.2 port for primary storage provides satisfaction and therefore its future ready. The memory frequency support of up to 2666 MHz depends on the CPU. Since I have the Core i3 8350K, it has up to 2400 MHz memory support.

You can fiddle with the multiplier and the memory’s timing. But that’s it.

About the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI…

Looking at the native features Intel provided, it enables its partners to make feature-rich motherboards with a better accessible pricing than the Intel Z370 counterparts. This is needed as Intel will have to compete with AMD effectively in some form. Armed with the new features, AORUS B360 Gaming 3 Wifi takes advantage while maintaining a conservative appearance.

Packaging and Contents

The packaging is nicely done. All the contents are kept below with the WiFi module and its antennas as special add-ons. It mentions all the features and additions at its back. It does mention specification of the motherboard.

AORUS does provide a front panel header shell to make it easier to install all the front panel wires. I am a little disappointed to see a norm to have a couple of SATA cables. It wasn’t too long when we got all six SATA cables for all six Native SATA ports. The M.2 wireless module, the antennas and its required screw+ standoff and packed separately.

 Form Factor
 ATX Form Factor; 30.5cm x 22.5cm

Specification Overview

Do note the difference in its ATX form factor measurement. While the standard layouts are 33.5 cm x 24.4 cm, this is has a shorter length of 22.5 cms. This isn’t the first motherboard to do as you can find a handful of them online, dating back to AMD 970 chipset era. Unfortunately, most PC cases do not have that one mounting hole in its midsection.

The notable point of this motherboard is the inclusion of USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A and C port, marked in red. As you would expect, eventually newer tech trickles down to value-class chipset motherboards. You’ll also notice the absence of any RAID assist utility since Intel B360 chipset does not support RAID.

Since this chipset supports it, the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WiFi has bundled with a CNVi wireless module This is nice to see in a non-enthusiast labelled chipset as in reality a lot of people wouldn’t splurge on motherboards for gaming, but wouldn’t mind spending a bit more on added features.

Motherboard Design

As said earlier, the B360 Gaming 3 WiFi looks like a standard ATX, but once you install it on a motherboard tray you’ll notice slimmer design. As a result, one of the mounting holes in its midsection does not match with standard 24.4 cms layout.

Layout Overview

There is a plastic overlay over the VRMs and rear I.O ports with AORUS branding and styling. The rest of the implementations are pretty standard.

The EPS and four-pin fan header placements are standard. Behind the EPS ATX 12V connector, there’s a sys_fan header. There are a total of five four-pin fan headers- SYS FAN 1/2, SYS FAN3 PUMP, CPU and CPU OPT which you can use for the AIO pump header or the CPU air cooler’s second fan. The sys_fan1 placement is annoying because of the plastic overlay.

To the left of the 24 pin ATX connectors are the sys_fan 2 headers, a USB 3.0 header and a Thunderbolt 3 header in case you’re planning to use a Thunderbolt 3 add-in card.

LED Madness!!

The motherboard has limited RGB bling- one around the audio area and the chipset sink. In total, there are four RGB headers- two for the three-pin digital LEDs (D_LED1 and D_LED2) accompanied with a 5v/12v jumpers marked as SW and SW2 (in pairs and placed towards top right and another towards the bottom). The four-pin RGBW pins are also placed in these two corners (LED_C1 and C2). The four-pin RGBW LED_C1 and C2 are for the 5050 RGBW LED strips providing power to a length of 2 meters and the other two for digital LED strips up to 5 meters. They are connected to respective jumpers to toggle between 5v and 12v supply. All of these are located towards the top right corner of the DIMM slots. Notice there are no metal wraps for the DDR4 slots, but you’ll have them for the 1st PCIe x16 slot.

SATA ports placement

If this was using the current ATX form factor layout, AORUS could have easily fit all six right-angled SATA ports towards the lower right side. Between the SATA ports are diagnostic LEDs for CPU, RAM, VGA and boot indicator. Not a lot of cases provide ample cable management towards the base, with an exception to slide in front panel wiring. AORUS emphasizes in aesthetics so they should have thought about this. SATA ports placements are preferred to be at a corner with right-angled slots for good reason.

Front Panel I/O

The base has all the required headers in well-placed areas. From its left, you have the front audio headers, SPDIF_OUT header, the LED headers which were addressed earlier, PORT, TPM, USB 2.0, the SYS_FAN3 header, front panel connectors with clear CMOS pins above it. The front panel connectors are colour coded and you’ll need to use the provided header clamp.

Rear I/O

There are four USB 2.0 ports with a PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, a DVI-D port, USB 3.1 Type A ports followed by HDMI, USB 31. Type A + C (marked in red), a single RJ45 port and all the audio jacks. There is no optical out connector.

Sub-components overview

The motherboard uses Realtek ALC892 audio codec paired with high-end audio capacitors. The B360 Gaming 3 WiFI uses an Intel Network controller (Intel i219v gigabit) and an ITE86868 for I/O and fan/voltage monitoring/control.

PCIe Slot Layout

The PCIe x16 with x16 3.0 bandwidth is sandwiched between the PCIe x1 slots, followed by two more PCIe x16 slots- one for X4 mode and the last which runs on x2 if the PCIe x1 or the second PCIe x16 slot @ x4 is used. I am not sure why AORUS states SLI/CrossFire support as the second slot only provides x4 if no other PCIe x1/last PCIe x16 slots are not used. The bandwidth does not split as X8/X8 (like the Z370 chipset) if the first two PCIe x16 slots are occupied by two graphics cards. The first PCIe x16 3.0 slot has a metal plate on it. AORUS claims provide additional re-enforcement. Note that it only has the metal rims around the PCIe x16 slot. The B360 Gaming 3 WIFI does not have those ‘double-locking bracket’ pegs which are inserted through the PCIe x16 slots where its soldered on the side of the PCB.

M.2 Slots

There are three M.2 slots. The first slot has a metal heatspreader supporting up to 110mm length M.2 storage while the third support up to 80mm. The one between the first PCIe x16 and the PCIe x1 is for the CNVi modules which AORUS provides with this model. Next to it is the CMOS battery placement.

M.2 Sink Design

These are however one-sided heatspreader. This should work better if it is secured against the M.2 storage card,  but there’s nothing to clamp it on. You’ll see this on M.2 heatsinks like EKWB EK-M2 kit which has a backplate for the M.2 accompanied with two thermal pad strips for both sides and clamps secure all of them together. The effectiveness of such heatsinks is very depended on good contact and airflow. It is no different from the usually preferred bolt-kits for CPU air coolers.

plasthic fantasthic

If you want, you can remove this plastic overlay which rests over the rear I.O ports. There are no LEDs or wiring running under it. The motherboard looks better this way, but it all comes to preference.

Bare Motherboard Design

The AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WiFi uses a 4+3 power phase design with its power delivery controlled by Intersil ISL95866.

Chipset Area

If you notice the chipset area, there are some LEDs on it. You’ll also find LED underneath the audio codec area which is a typical bling you get to see on motherboards.

Heatsink Area

The motherboard VRM/MOSFET heatsinks are better designed. They may not have the traditional heatsink design like the leaked imaged of the X470 AORUS 7 WIFI, but anything is better than putting a piece of thick metal and calling it a day.

BIOS Overview

The AORUS Gaming 3 WIFI BIOS is pretty standard with advanced and EZ display. It doesn’t have a lot of difference than the Z370 version, with an exception to some features such as lack of RAID support and RAM/CPU overclocking.

There is one feature I did like (in a way). The BIOS has an inbuilt utility to adjust the LED lights. This is so much better than expecting people to download a separate utility where you can set the colours as per your preference.

Layout and Clearance Overview

The only challenge here is to install the EPS 12V ATX cable and the system fan header which is placed behind it when you have the plastic overlay. It is a problem when you try connecting those cables while the B360 Gaming 3 WiFI is mounted in the case.

The clearance between the DIMM Slots, the first M.2 slot with its heatspreader and the PCIe x16 has enough space. Even with the Noctua NH-D15S and the AORUS RX 580.

Test System and Testing Methodology

The following setup is what’s used to test the MSI Z270 Krait Gaming motherboard:

Operating System Windows 10 64-bit Pro
Processor+ Cooler Intel Core i3 8350K + Noctua NH-U14S
Motherboard AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI
RAM 16GB HyperX Savage DDR4
GPU AORUS RX 580 XTR 8G
OS Drive 240GB SanDisk Extreme II SSD
Secondary WD Red 3TB
PSU Thermaltake DPS-G Gold 750w
PC Case Lian Li A70F

The AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI motherboard is tested with the Core i3 8350K. Since the B360 and H370 chipset doesn’t support CPU and RAM overclocking, one will be curious who will bother to buy this CPU for the Z370 chipset. The existence of Core i3 8350K is fascinating and there will be a review of this as well. Note there is also a memory frequency limitation of up to 2400 MHz.

The Benchmarks are as follows:

Problem with Intel

Intel doesn’t allow CPU and RAM overclocking on B360 and H370. Worst. Decision. Ever. The fact that motherboard manufacturers put so much effort on both platforms should be more reason for Intel to cut some slack and allow overclocking. Intel made really weird decision lately- from releasing a series of locked and unlocked Coffee Lake CPUs with Z370 platform which will command a higher price. It is only after a few months, Intel releases three lower budget chipsets. Sure, it does have native USB 3.1 Gen 2 and CNVi support. Now Intel Z370 chipsets will feel left out. Maybe Intel didn’t do it so that Z370 users won’t feel scammed? What about H370 having no significant advantage over B360? So why do we have a Core i3 8350K unlocked processor? Why anyone who will pick this up and choose an Intel Z370 motherboard if they don’t overclock and/or RAID?

Oh, AMD! You took “B350” chipset model number right under Intel before they can use it! You nasty, bro! ME LIKEY!!!

Problem with AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI

The AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WiFi motherboard is very interesting. For the most part, I do like it. But I don’t think it is a good idea to have a weird version of an ATX layout with no matching mounting holes with conventional cases. The decision to do so is as confusing as releasing an unlocked lower budget CPU but no overclockable lower budget chipset. If the layout didn’t alter the position of those two mounting holes, I wouldn’t have bothered to talk about it.

Dem mounting holes…

The AORUS H370 Gaming 3 WIFI is a 30.5cm x 24.4cm ATX spec, versus B360 Gaming 3 WIFI with 30.5cm x 22.5cm, an older ATX spec. The current spec has nine mounting holes, while the older has seven (used back in 790/970 chipset days). Between the two, one mounting hole on the older spec is in a different area from the conventional ATX form factor, which is in the same line as the first PCIe x16 slot. As a result, the upper right section of the motherboard will not be secured properly in a conventional case.

I am not sure how many PC cases have that single mount support for 22.5 cm ATX form factor- or if newer ATX PC cases accommodate alternate mounting. Even the Cooler Master MB500 didn’t have that support, nor on the Dimastech bench table. But it does on the Lian Li A70F, an old PC case which as all the standoff support for all motherboard formfactors except for XL-ATX. Some users wouldn’t care. Many system builders wouldn’t like to leave any of the mounting holes unused as components weigh on the motherboards, which rely on the cases provided they’re mounted properly. Many graphics cards are heavy enough to use support brackets and stand to avoid sagging. This motherboard doesn’t have its ‘double locking bracket’ for the PCIe x16 slot which I feel is more important than having a metal dressing. If AORUS used a standard form factor, it will have the room to have all six right-angled SATA ports and have all nine mounting holes. I’ve asked a couple of PC case manufacturers if they have a list of cases which has all mounting support for the 30.5cm x 22.5cm ATX form factor.

The best stuff about the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI

Many Z370 users may not like it. But thanks to Intel, CNVi and native USB 3.1 Gen 2 support even on its B360 chipset makes this motherboard very tempting. It even provides a CNVi M.2 module Intel 9560 WiFi with Wave2, BT 5.0 and MU-MIMO module to provide a complete package. An Intel B360 chipset would be a good choice to pick up over the H370 in some cases because newer implements even on lower budget chipset would have some price change. Many H370 chipset motherboards would cost the same as Z370 base models. Intel B360 gives full 1x PCIe x16 3.0 bandwidth support fulfilling the needs of most gamers. It has support for six SATA ports and native USB 3.1 Gen 2 and CNVi, fulfilling the needs of most users. If for any reason you plan to buy a Coffee Lake platform on a mid-end budget, the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI and a locked Core i5 CPU looks mighty tempting combination.

Really Intel, you can’t even enable overclocking even for H370?
