AMD X370 Motherboard Roundup

AMD's X370 is currently the most feature rich chipset for socket AM4 motherboards. X370 is closely followed by AMD's B350 chipset, and both are able to overclock Ryzen CPUs. X370 surpasses B350 thanks to four additional USB 3.0 ports and two more PCIe 2.0 lanes. It also is able split the CPU's PCIe 3.0 lanes between two GPUs, which B350 cannot do.

Since X370 motherboards support overclocking, it's crucial to pick a motherboard with a well-designed power regulation sub-system. Boards that have less than eight power phases and relatively small heatsinks may limit performance, especially while overclocking. To avoid this, ensure any board you plan to overclock on has at least eight phases and beefy heatsinks to cool them.

RAM support is also highly important while selecting an X370 motherboard. According to our tests, due to Ryzen's Infinity Fabric, latency between CCXs (CPU Complexes) significantly improves as memory speeds increase. This effect levels off as memory speed hits around 3200MHz, but to get the most out of your CPU, you'll want to ensure that your motherboard can support memory of at least that speed.

You'll want to consider other motherboard features based on what you personally need out of your PC. The number of various other ports will vary greatly from one board to the next, and while everyone probably needs at least two SATA ports, you're the only one who can say exactly how many you'll need.

    Just wondering why the Crosshair VI Hero and Crosshair VI Extreme aren't featured here. Especially the Hero.

    MSI X370 Krait doesn't belong there, it is the same Niko garbage as B350 Krait.
    ASRock X370 Killer SLI/ac and Cringenal1ty K4 don't belong there either, because newer revisions have significantly cheaper VRM and really crap components.
    You missed Prime X370 Pro, Strix X370-F (damn good IR VRM, bang for your buck as f*cc), Crosshair 6 Hero and Extreme

    MSI X370 Krait doesn't belong there, Nikosemiconductor versions of X370 Killer SLI and Fatality K4 too.

    We would LOVE to get our hands on some Asus boards. Unfortunately, Asus hasn't sent us any but we are working on it.

    Keep in mind, boards we have reviewed were in the early vintages/revisions of the board. As with any review, YMMV and sometimes boards can be duds, even produced by the best manufacturers.

    The Strix X370-F is a subjectively beautiful board ( I own it, tehehehe). No super advanced features, but a very palatable design and solid overclocking at the $170ish price range.

    He missed nothing and your post made everyone here less informed. Asus didn't send those boards.

    Yes, but that doesn't make him correct, and it doesn't get Asus to send the samples.

    That's great to know! I hope it motivates the manufacturer!

    For the listed price of the Gigabyte K5 board, it's bigger brother the GA-AX370 Gaming K7 is selling for the same price.

    No benchmarks. Tomshardware turned into a cheap magazine offering only "opinions".

    The benchmarks are in the reviews. Fully "paid-for".

    I don't think they "missed" them usually when Tom's does these reviews it is limited to what motherboard the manufacturers sent them to be tested. SO ASUS didn't send them so they didn't get tested and listed.

    I have my Asrock X370 Taichi and it's an awesome board. Too bad it didn't get higher remarks here.
