What Motherboard is good for a ryzen 7 3700x (make sure BIOS is compatible) asking for a friend.

Recommended Posts

Depends on the budget 

For b450 a mortar max or a tomahawk Max are plenty for an 8 core 

If you want dmi 4 

Most x570 boards are pretty good 

Example : the x570 tuf is pretty good the prime x570 pro is also pretty decent 

 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 

 

@TofuHaroto so I can see your post

Just a quick tip letting you know ;)

Sending links that don't appear ( an example of a link pop up like a YouTube video where you can see what the link actually is ) is not recommend here 

Most people won't click random links so just say what it says

The following list is based on facts, ranked on power delivery and known problems. The list will include boards that support CPU overclocking available at retail from different brands. Currently only AMD boards are done because I don't have much interest on currently available Intel CPUs, also because there are a lot more Intel Z370/Z390 boards than B350/X370/B450/X470/X570 boards combined.

 

There are still differences in performance among boards of the same tier. As a result, those that barely made it into that tier will be in orange while those that are better than others in the same tier are in blue

All current draw figures are based on Prime95 small FFT with AVX unless otherwise specified, in other words the worst case scenario. Only often recommended sku of CPUs in the same generation and core/thread count configuration is named, others share the same rating. Zen scales down frequency and voltage according to EDC (current limit) and TDC (thermal limit) settings of the motherboard so in theory you won’t cook the VRM of any board at stock, you just lose frequency.

Personally i prefer the google spreadsheet as it tells you how many brm phases it has, along with what cpu’s you should and shouldn’t run on each board respectively.

 

Not to say that the one on the forum is bad, not even a little, just a lot of people wanna know what exact cpu should and shouldn’t be run on X board in spreadsheet format, and I personally prefer spreadsheets lol.
