We put four of the least-expensive B550 motherboards to the test. Are they able to handle our Ryzen 9 3900X and do they have enough features for a discerning user?
Here are the best motherboards for Intel and AMD’s top processors. These boards offer great features, overclocking performance and pricing.
The ASRock B550 PG Velocita includes robust VRMs, good performance and overclocking capability at a mid-range price point.
MSI’s B550I Gaming Edge Wi-Fi includes all the expected bells and whistles of the B550 chipset in a Mini-ITX size package, sans RGB.
The $1100 ASRock Z490 Aqua performed well during testing with the monoblock, keeping the VRMs exceptionally cool, even when overclocked. But is it worth the insane price of admission?
