ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Motherboard is designed for 16/8 cores Ryzen 9 3950X. This is the first motherboard that supports the X470 chipset, which provides a high-end experience to Ryzen 5 family CPUs.

AM4 socket keeps compatibility with GPU and RAM upgrades for many years. Asus also packed 8 + 4 Power Phase design for stable power supply, ROG SupremeFX S1220A for pure sound, and M.2 cooling solution with a heat shield to make sure the CPU doesn’t overheat.

In addition, this motherboard is equipped with a dedicated water-pump connector so you can easily control the liquid cooler. It also has dual M.2 slots compatible with NVMe SSDs and USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity options available on the front and back panels for transferring your data at high speed.

You can also adjust the motherboard’s lighting or change its colors by installing 4-pin/12V RGB header to make this motherboard looks awesome. It also supports the free ASUS RAMCache II utility to help you speed up your game or application startup.

The ASUS ROG Strix B550-F is a great choice for Ryzen 5 family CPUs. It has the same key features as the ASUS Prime X470-Pro, but it costs less. So this motherboard is the best option for gaming with Ryzen 5 CPUs that you can buy today.

With its Mini ITX design, it occupies less space on your desk and allows you to easily transfer to another case or system. It’s still built with all the necessary features to ensure the performance of Ryzen 5 CPUs.

The board is equipped with 6 fan headers, including one dedicated to water cooling pumps so you can easily control your liquid cooler pump. ASUS has also added their own TUF protection, ESD guards, and matte finishes that look great with this motherboard’s aggressive design.

If you want to save money and still get a high performance like the “big brothers”, then this one would be your best choice. This is a high-performing board with a true AM4 socket. With all the features it offers, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Performance-wise, it can be overclocked up to 5 GHz due to the high-quality heatsink and PCB. ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Motherboard is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a top-notch motherboard for Ryzen 9 3950X.

Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite

Sale
Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite (AMD Ryzen 3000/X570/ATX/PCIe4.0/DDR4/USB3.1/Realtek ALC1200/Front USB Type-C/RGB Fusion 2.0/M.2 Thermal Guard/Gaming Motherboard)
  • Supports AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen/ 2nd Gen Ryzen/ Ryzen with Radeon Vega Graphics processors
  • Dual channel ECC/ non ECC unbuffered DDR4, 4 DIMMs
  • True 12 phases digital VRM
  • Extended VRM Heatsink
  • Dual ultra-fast NVMe PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 & thermal guard

Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite is the latest AMD X570 board from Gigabyte. It’s fully featured to cater to all needs of Ryzen 3000 APUs & CPUs users. The AORUS Elite has an aggressive design and it does not look like an entry-level motherboard at all.

It features the new AM4 socket which is necessary if you want to use a Ryzen 3000 CPU of course. AMD Socket AM4 was introduced along with the first Ryzen CPUs in 2017 and it brings DDR4 memory natively on all X570 boards from this socket.

Gigabyte Aorus Elite is the only board here to feature three M2 slots. This is useful if you need lots of fast storage, either for OS or Games because M2 SSDs are extremely fast and allow you to store games on them which you can play directly at full speed without loading data from HDD/SSD.

Gigabyte Aorus Elite also features two 32Gb/s M.2 x4 slots for SSDs which are located at the bottom of the board. It’s great because you can mount tall CPU coolers without having any clearance issues with PCIe sockets or VRMs heatsinks.

The upper slot is reinforced by a metallic cover to block any potential signals interferences from near components. The memory support is set to DDR4-4000 which means that Ryzen 3000 CPUs will hit the highest speed that the AM4 platform can offer.

Gigabyte Aorus Elite is also equipped with three PCIe slots which means that the first two are always running at full speed, even if you have a fast graphics card on the third one.

This way, even if you install a high-end graphics card like the RTX 2080 Ti, the first two PCIe 3.0 slots will still operate at 32Gb/s bandwidth which is optimal for fast SSDs and gaming Ethernet NIC cards (for low latency).

This is another feature that is only found with this board and it’s a great way to improve WiFi card compatibility because some WiFi cards might be too big to fit into M.2 slots on many motherboards due to interference issues between PCIe and WiFi antennas.

On the rear panel, you will find a D-SUB VGA connector so if your monitor requires an analog signal you can still use it on this new board while some other competitor boards have no connectors at all.

If you need even more PCIe lanes, however, you should consider paying a bit more and getting an X570 Aorus Ultra for instance. It has four DDR4 slots which can operate at up to 4600 MHz with an OC profile (this is not guaranteed though).

For Ryzen 3000 CPUs, we recommend getting RAMs operating at 4000 MHz if possible in order to get the overclocking margin required by these new CPUs.

Pros

– Comes with a 10+4 phase power design

– Dual 8 pin connectors to provide a stable supply for overclocking

– Supports AMD AM4 CPUs and offers support for Intel LGA 1151/1151v2 processors

Cons

– No WiFI or Bluetooth

Pros

– Excellent overclocking features

– Solid performance

– Better than average aesthetics

Cons

– No USB Type C (gen 2) port

MSI MEG X570 ACE Motherboard is known to be built for Ryzen’s 1st generation of Threadripper. It seems like it is discontinued, but we haven’t found any information that says it isn’t compatible with the 3950X or other 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs.

You can give this variant a try if you already own one. At least, we are sure that there will be no compatibility issues with the 3950X CPU.

The best option is to choose a motherboard that was made for the 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs. This way, you will not have any compatibility issues with your 3950X or other 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.

MSI MEG X570 Ace is a high-end motherboard that has been designed for the Ryzen 1st gen of Threadripper CPUs. It has a very appealing design and comes with an RGB LED design, which works great with the MSI Mystic Light software.

The motherboard supports 1st and 2nd gen of Ryzen CPUs, but it is not compatible with 3rd-gen CPUs. It has 7 PCIe Gen 16 slots which allow you to install any GPU cards simultaneously without any compatibility issues. It comes with NVMe and M.2 slots for installing SSDs and offers you a maximum of six RAM slots (DDR4).
