Best Motherboards for AMD Ryzen 3000 Processors: Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 & Ryzen 9 Recommendations

AMD’s Ryzen 3000 processors have been out for a while now, and if you’re planning to buy them chances are that you’re also looking for a new motherboard. In this post, we’ll be listing the best budget and high-end motherboards for the new Matisse processors. We’ll recommend a motherboard for every Ryzen CPU to make your life easier, so rest easy.

Best Budget Motherboard for Ryzen 5 3500 and 3600: MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX

Price: Rs. 6,350 (Link)

CPU Support1st, 2nd & 3rd Gen Ryzen
ChipsetB450
Memory4 x DDR4 DIMMs w/ Support for Up to 64GB @ 3866 MHz
PCIe1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
Storage4 x SATA 6Gb/s ports, 1 x M.2
USB6 x USB 3.2 Gen1, 8 x USB 2.0

The MSI B450M Pro VDH Max is easily one of the best budget motherboard for the lower-end Ryzen CPUs. We strongly recommend pairing it with the Ryzen 5 3500 or the 3600 or any of the older 1st or 2nd Gen Ryzen parts. It supports up to 64GB of DDR4 memory via 4 DIMMs @ 3866MHz and come with 6 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports as well as an M.2 slot and 2 PCIe x1 slots for faster NVMe memory.

Best Motherboard for Ryzen 5 3600X & Ryzen 7 3700X: MSI B450 Gaming Plus Max

Price: Rs. 9,200 (Link)

CPU Support1st, 2nd & 3rd Gen Ryzen
ChipsetB450
Memory4 x DDR4 DIMMs w/ Support for Up to 64GB @ 4133 MHz
PCIe2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 4 x PCIe 2.0 x1
XFX/SLIOnly XFX
Storage6 x SATA 6Gb/s ports, 1 x M.2
USB2 x USB 3.2 Gen2, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen1, 6 x USB 2.0

If you’re going for a Ryzen 5 3600X or the Ryzen 7 3700X, then I’d suggest going with an expensive B450 board. An X570 board is all good for a 3700X but I’s suggest sticking with the B450 for the 3600X. You get support for speedy memory (4GHz+), more than enough storage options, CrossFire-X support as well as USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. There’s no point in going with an X470 or X570 board as PCIe 4 is still in its infancy stages and overclocking is largely limited to the higher-end Matisse chips.

Best Budget Motherboard for Ryzen 7 3800X & Ryzen 9 3900X: ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus

Price: Rs. 16,935 (Link)

CPU Support2nd & 3rd Gen Ryzen
ChipsetX570
Memory4 x DDR4 DIMMs w/ Support for Up to 128GB @ 4400 MHz

XFX/SLIYes
Storage8 x SATA 6Gb/s ports, 2 x M.2
USB5 x USB 3.2 Gen2, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen1, 4 x USB 2.0

If you’re buying a 3800X or the Ryzen 9, then you’ll probably want to go with an X570 board as these chips are more viable for overclocking. The X570 platform comes with PCIe 4.0 support across two x16 slots and three x1. You get dual M.2 support, 8 SATA III ports, and almost 10 USB 3 ports. What more can you want? Last, but not the least, the ASUS TUF motherboards not only look good but also feature the best quality PCBs.

Best High-end Motherboard for the Ryzen 9: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero/ASRock X570 Taichi

  • Price of ASUS: Rs. 32,980 (Link)
  • Price of ASRock: Rs. 28,149 (Link)

The Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero along with the ASRock X570 Taichi are the best high-end X570 motherboards on the market. With active heatsinks, excellent VRMs and power phases, they feature top-of-the-line everything from audio to WiFi and even the RGB lighting. If you don’t have any budget constraints and have bought a Ryzen 7 or 9, then this is the board to go for!

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.

  1. I would suggest get add few extra and upgrade to 9the gen i3. Processor wize you will not see much improvement, but performance wise there is a huge leap. If your existing motherboard has shown some fault, remember that it must have passed some to the processor.(personal experience) It will not be worth the replacement.
    If you are on tight budget, get any H61 Motherboard. It will suffice.
