Which Motherboard Should I Go For With My PC Components.

I found out from a post I made earlier that my current motherboard (Gigabyte A320M-S2H) can't handle my Ryzen 9 5900x that I recently upgraded to. I tried figuring out if I could undervolt or underclock my CPU to get more stability, since I am stuttering in games quite often; however the A320 chipset can't overclock or underclock in BIOS, or even using Ryzen Master.

So what motherboard should I replace my old one with? I don't want anything expensive but around $130 USD would be nice. Built in WiFi would be nice but not necessary, since I have a USB Wireless Adapter.

So here are my PC components:
CPU: Ryzen 9 5900x
GPU: RTX 3070
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 3600MHz (2x16GB)

PSU: Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold
Storage: 1 x 1 TB M.2 NVME SSD, 1 x 1 TB SATA SSD
Case: NZXT H5 FLOW ATX MID-TOWER CASE

This, but the ATX version not the micro.

Yeah the CPU is throttling to like 0.3GHz to 2.1GHz all the time and it’s only at 60 degrees Celsius. Many others were saying that my motherboard is the issue here and it isn’t delivering enough power to my CPU. Also I tried underclocking my CPU through BIOS but it didn’t do anything other than change the number on Task Manager and in Cinebench R24. Here is one from GeekBench 5: https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/22021139 D442B1DA-C4B1-40FB-94CD-22E1ED34C4A5.thumb.jpeg.76c0ff5d8218f485a94aacbcdcf2c2fd.jpeg 22834566-2366-4204-8FC7-9B9EF0027F1A.thumb.jpeg.309c83abdb3f230301be9f862d7821eb.jpeg

Could be power throttling, maybe power limits can be increased in the bios.

 

But probably the board is just too low spec for a 5900x indeed.
