Which motherboard is good enough for R7 2700?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Please help me! I'm currently using a B450 HDV and I want to upgrade to a motherboard that has decent oc capabilities. I wouldn't like to spend more money than necesary but I do want a solid board to get the most out of my 2700 and have the posibility to upgrade to Ryzen 4000 series in the future without any issue. Prices are higher because I'm not from the US. Unless there's a good discounted board on Amazon that ships global I have to stick to theses ones.

MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX ($95)
Gigabyte B450 Aorus M ($103)
Asus TUF B450M-Plus ($115)
Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite ($121)

MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX
($133)

 sounds like it’s time to watch a whole bunch of buildzoid videos.

I'm trying to choose between these 2:
MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX ($95)

MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX ($133)

Acording to the Tier List, the B450 Pro VDH is decent but I just don't want to have any issues related to power delivery, that's my only concern

I have seen a lot of videos where they use the B450 Gaming Plus Max but if you can go just a bit further I would say the B450 Tomahawk Max

I remember someone saying here once that all the MSI b450 boards had the same VRM and the difference between them was other features.  Not sure how true that was or what the other features were.  Determining what VRM is is one of the less complicated things for motherboards though.  There a number of boxes to the left and top of where the cpu socket is.  Count them.
 

The major authority on motherboard features and components seems to be a guy named buildzoid.  Iirc he did videos on them.
