Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello , 

 

I am doing a built : here , and I dont know what board I shoud go , some people say I should go for Motherboard ATX MSI B450 Tomahawk Max , but what does Tomahawk have so special ? I think I should go with a Motherboard ATX MSI B450-A Pro Max , so I can save 20€.

 

Can someone help me ?

Tomahawk max

Mortar max

Pro 4 

Pro vdh max 

A pro max ( non m ) 

Iirc the tomahawk and the a pro and the mortar use very similar vrm solution ( 4 50A discrete mosfets ). And the pro 4 and the pro vdh max are also decent. 

For b550. Only board I'm thinking of around this budget is the pro 4. 


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

CX450.

The B450-A Pro is the same as the Tomahawk electronically I believe. The Tomahawk was the most commonly available originally so it's the one most people recommend, but all the midrange MSI boards are basically the same with minor differences.

But what do you recommend me in terms of price/value

All of these boards are good. And will easily handle a 6 or even an 8 core. 

As I said the a pro is pretty close if not the same as the tomahawk and is really good ( as I said 4 50A discrete mosfets ).

Ok so I think I am sticking with the ATX MSI B450-A Pro Max is it a good idea ?

Any of:

Tomahawk

A Pro (ATX)

Mortar

Bazooka Plus

will be the same VRM wise, pick whichever you like the look of or whichever is cheaper.

Pro4

VDH Max

are not quite as good but still fine.

This migh be a stupid question , but please dont go harsh on me I am not that good at pc specs.

 

Does being Micro-atx and ATX affects the performance and other things ?

 

Because I have a case that handles ATX but micro-atx is cheaper .

No.

Some use different vrm solutions etc. But ig it was literally the same vrm layout just a different form factor it would be cheaper but there are physically less material used for it.

MicroATX board will fit an ATX case, you get fewer PCIe slots (only needed if you're planning on running lots of wifi/sound/other expansion cards) but other than that there's no inherent differences.
