Stuck between X470 and B450

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I don't know enough about either board or chipset and the more research I do the more confused I get. I need good VRMs and a nice PCB that I can maybe play with voltages a little on.

 

I'm getting a 3600 and I'd like to OC it HOPEFULLY to 4 GHz but I'll settle for 3600X stock speeds. I want to OC my 3000 ram to 3200 and keep the CAS 15 number but I know that may not be possible. 

 

I'd prefer 2 m.2 slots as I have an NVME and an mSata drive. And I would like more than 6 sata ports but I realize that may not be doable either so that's my last priority and I'll be fine with 6. I'm just very anal about having more than 2 backup drives in my PC.

 

I need RGB as bright as small class A pulsar only because I know it will give me a boost in games like Fortnite and PubG.

 

But jokes aside, I'm hoping to spend between $150 and $200 on a board. I really never learned enough about motherboards to shop by performance. I just shop by price.

B450tomahawk max would do plenty here.

Otherwise a X570 aurus elite or Tuf gaming if you want the newest chipset with gen 4 pcie (If thats something you want)

Thanks man. I actually could care less about gen 4. I bought a 1 TB Sabrent Rocket NVME gen 3 for $100 and I run a Vega 56 and I don't plan on upgrading either of those components for a few years.

In that case Go with the tomahawk max. Good quality board and good fit here

Will do. I'm watching this so I can catch up to the rest of you with my motherboard knowledge.

You need a Xy70 variant. The 70 series allows for more storage peripherals over PCIe or PCH. I believe the 500 series boards supports the most m.2 and SATA bandwidth. However, the x470 series boards are also excellent in this regard.

 

Top choice: X570 variant

2nd choice: X470 variant

 

Within your price range? Would have to run a comparison of all the many boards. At $200, the two boards that come to mind without running another comparison are the ASUS X570 TUF and ASUS X470 Strix-F.
