Best X470 Motherboard


The latest AMD Ryzen processors use the B550 and X570 chipset but the price of the motherboards based on these chipsets is too much. The X470 chipset motherboards are a great alternative, as they are available at lower prices and yet provide quality features that attract high-end users. 

One of the advantages of using X470 chipset motherboards is that they do not support PCI-E 4.0, which is not a deal breaker for most people, as there is barely any hardware that can fully take advantage of PCI-E 4.0. The VRM of the X470 motherboards are good enough to handle high-end processors and you can easily overclock the Ryzen 5000-series processors to high clock rates, going as high as 4.5 GHz, as long as you are not thermally throttled.

In this article, we will have a look at some of the best X470 motherboards.

MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX

MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX is one of the cheapest motherboards with the X470 chipset. In fact, it is cheaper than many B450 motherboards as of now too, which is why it is an excellent choice for budget gamers. The MAX variant was introduced later by the company that has the capability of natively hosting the AMD Ryzen 3000-series processors without any BIOS update. The VRM of the motherboard is good enough for overclocking mid-range Ryzen processors, while the I/O of the motherboard is at least better than low-end B450 motherboards.

Since it is becoming a dated motherboard, you might be able to get it at a much lower rate than most modern motherboards for Ryzen processors.

GIGABYTE X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING
