Searching for good B450 Board

 Share

Hey everyone!

I've decided to build desktop, but I can't choose motherboard and I'm not sure if i'm doing right decision.

I want B450 Chipset board for Ryzen 2600 and 2x8gb 3200MHz Ram.

Curently I chose Asus B450 TUF Gaming Plus (Full ATX) - 90 eur.

I have Asus and i trust them ,they're pretty reliable, but i don't know, maybe there are better choices out there and I don't want to spend much on motherboard, I might OC to 4.2GHz in the future and I choose Asus because as i read, it is the best motherboard to overclock, lots of settings in BIOS, offset's, etc...

I will put board names and prices down, so the prices meet my country and maybe you could offer board that is better or maybe this board will be good enough for everything ^^.

List:

Gigabyte B450M DS3H, ASRock B450M-HDV - 70

ASRock B450M Pro 4 , Asus Prime B450M-K, MSI B450M Bazooka - 80

MSI B450M Gaming Plus , ASRock B450 PRO4, Gigabyte B450 AORUS M - 85

Asus TUF B4500Plus , Prime B450M-A. MSI B450-A Pro, Bazooka PLUS - 90.

MSI B450M Mortar, ASRock Fatal1ty - 95

MSI B450 Gaming plus - 100

B450 AORUS ELITE - 105

MSI B450 Mortar Titanium - 110

Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro - 116

MSI B450 Tomahawk - 120

Ty! ^^

Exactly what he said. Pretty much I'd just opt for the one that has exactly what I want. Those price difference aren't too big that you'll miss it later on.

No, there was no need to overclock, my mate just wanted a pc for general home use to replace his 10 year old Athlon 6000+ pc.

Best OC capabilities usually come down to good VRM designs (and proper firmware). You want at least (!) 4 phases but more are usually better. Doubled phases are okay but not as good as true phases. Probably even more important is VRM cooling. You gain nothing from more phases if they can't stay cool. A 2600 can already get tricky with 6 cores and high OC. On Ryzen 7 you have to have good VRM cooling if you want to OC. 4 phases can be enough if (!) they are well cooled.

 

The MSI B450M Mortar is probably the best mATX board out there for AM4. The cooler is really heavy and capable of handling everything you throw at it and according to buildzoid the used chips are of very good quality. It would be my choice since I really don't see the point in full ATX if all you put in your system is a single GPU.

 

Just don't buy any board without a solid VRM cooler. Before you buy, check if buildzoid made an in-depth review of it.

How about the Asus TUF B450? I want ATX due aesthetics of case and also i chose Asus because their BIOS is best and Hardware is good, I saw that MSI has really good VRM coolers, but if BIOS don't let you OC right, whats the point of these coolers anyway, if you can't set certaing things and you will receive BSOD. I didn't really OC'd anything to extreme yet, so probably I won't or maybe I will in the future :) .

The TUF lineup got downgraded to lower-mid tier. No idea how good their doing now. The VRM design is 4 phase though I don't know if those chips are any good and how well the VRM cooler works. See if you can find reviews from buildzoid, anandtech or gamersnexus.

I have a TUF B350M-PLUS GAMING paired with a 2600.  It seems decent enough, no real complaints about it but nothing spectacular either.  Had a 1700 running it in for about 6 months before sending that CPU off to a friend.  Been using the board itself now about a year now and haven't OC'd much with it as I'm using stock cooler of the 2600 at the moment.  Seems like a decent little board for what I paid for it.  

 

Ryzen 2600 - Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 - Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3000 C15 2x8GB - Corsair Force MP500 NVMe PCIe M.2 240GB - 2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB -

I want B450 Chipset board

 

 

Here is an analysis on B450 motherboards and it may help to decide.

The comparison that is made at the end is quite interesting

 

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13091/analyzing-b450-for-amd-ryzen-a-quick-look-at-all-the-motherboards/22

 

Apparently the desicion of one or another motherboard has to do with what you want to prioritize in it, say better audio, wifi, aesthetics, lan, amount of usb.

Just look for information on the work of the VRM of these base plates under overclocking. If I did not have that information, maybe at first glance I would look for a number of phases in the CPU VRM, but I could be wrong because this case is not always synonymous with quality.

I personally never chose an MSI motherboard to do OC, but it is also true that I do not know how things are with that brand, I only have reference to old models.
