The 2200g consumes around 40-50 watts, so even the cheapest 3 phase VRM would handle it. So literally ANY motherboard you could possibly buy would handle the 2200g just fine.

However, you should not buy a motherboard that's based on the A320 because it has terrible value - it blocks overclocking, it restricts maximum DDR4 frequencies, it has only 2 slots for memory, it has limited SATA and USB ports and it does not have support for Ryzen 3xxx series processors.

 

Motherboards with B450 chipset are often just a few dollars more expensive but most support even the latest processors released by AMD these days.

Also, keep in mind that using dual channel (TWO memory sticks) is A MUST and Ryzen processors love high frequency memory... try as hard as possible to get memory sticks running at least 3000 Mhz, ideally 3200 Mhz.

Hello everyone, i am thinking of buying the components needed for a Ryzen 3 2200G based system. But i'm concerned about the VRM's of the motherboard im buying with the Ryzen 3 2200g, i won't be doing any overclocking and i was wondering if this motherboard https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/A320M-PRO-E.html could do the trick without any issues, i would appreciate it greatly if you guys would have any thoughts on this. Thanks in advance

Don't buy an A320 board, they're all trash. If you're looking for a cheaper board grab a Pro4 from asrock

Expect it to run hot every time the CPU gets heavily loaded. There's not even a bad heatsink, it just doesn't have one. There's very little surface area when all you get are the mosfets package for heat dissipation.

Avoid A320 chipset like the plague unless you're just building office PCs with Athlons.

 

Get a B450 chipset board.
