Our first look at Intel's new B460 chipset is the BIOSTAR Racing B460GTA. Featuring dual M.2 slots, each with their own full coverage heatsink, RGB lighting, a large VRM heatsink, and even an integrated rear I/O cover, the BIOSTAR Racing B460GTA could be a good budget option for those with locked Intel CPUs.

Excuse me but, I just got myself some B460GTQ and I have the ability to modify PL values in mW. Did you guys not get to do that or what?

I do wonder what the reviewer consider a good audio section of the rear I/O?
I generally only look for one thing; toslink. (I hook all my computers up to a DacMagic Plus, then headset or speakers.)

Then go with a Z490 board instead if you want overclocking. (which you already have :) )
Most PC builders don't need this feature, and shouldn't either. Having no OC support also means the motherboard may not need overpowered VRMs.

Weird. On page 14 of the review there is
The BIOSTAR Racing B460GTA did well in my VRM test, barely going above 70 °C. Given the Racing B460GTA has a locked power limit, the VRM should be plenty sufficient.
:confused:

You're modifying PL values via bios, or intel xtu? Maybe it got added to the later version of bios...
