How We Chose The Best Motherboard for AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

Choosing a good motherboard for Ryzen 9 5900x is never an easy task; you need to examine several factors before purchasing a motherboard for your Ryzen 9 5900X. In the end, it all comes down to personal preference, but we’ve included a few pointers to keep in mind.

Chipset

The Chipset makes your processor and motherboard compatible with each other, and when it comes to Ryzen CPU’s, there are number of options to choose from for Ryzen 9 5900x motherboard. You can always choose from different Chipsets like X470, B550, X570, it all depends on your budget and requirements. You should also be able to choose the appropriate AM4 socket Motherboard for your Ryzen 9 5900X. Choosing a motherboard with a different chipset than the one advised for your processor is a major mistake.

Form Factor

Motherboards exist in various sizes, with ATX being the largest, followed by E-ATX, Micro ITX and Mini ITX. If you want a smaller setup, you should go with a Micro or Mini ITX motherboard; otherwise, you’ll be stuck with a small chassis that won’t accommodate your ATX board.

Compared to Micro or Mini ITX boards, ATX boards often have the greatest functionality and connectivity options. However, when deciding on the type of Form Factor to use, a few factors are to be considered.

  1. How many options for connectivity and storage do you require?
  2. What motherboard form factor will your computer case accept?

You may now make a judgement based on both of these considerations.

VRM

Your CPU receives juice via VRMs (Voltage Regulator Modules). If you purchase a Motherboard with a low-quality VRM, your CPU may be unable to perform to its full potential, especially during Overclocking sessions. You should choose a motherboard with a better VRM rating and quality. The VRM, also known as Voltage Regulator Modules, are responsible for powering your CPU. Choosing a Motherboard with high-quality VRM Mosfets and power will keep your Ryzen 9 5900X functioning for a long time.

If you want to push your Processor’s capabilities even further, overclocking is a choice. However, to overclock a CPU, your Motherboard must be capable of doing so.

Connectivity

Always keep your needs in mind while selecting a Motherboard. For example, if you often use more than a few USB ports devices, you might consider purchasing a motherboard with additional USB port options. These days motherboards with more M.2 slots are must for further storage possibilities. Always base your decisions on your needs.

RAM and Expansion Slots

When constructing a PC, one should consider how much RAM one will use an at what frequency. Ryzen CPUs benefit from high frequency modules with tight timings. When it comes to Motherboards, they can handle a variety of memory ranges. For example, some boards support only 64GB of memory, while others support up to 128GB. If you’ve already purchased your RAM, you should double-check how many DIMM slots you need, as motherboards might have varying numbers of DIMM slots.

When selecting a Motherboard, keep an eye out for expansion slots; if you intend to create an SLI or CrossFire system, make sure the Motherboard you’re considering supports them.

Aesthetics

Finally, you may always make selections based on appearance. For example, if you like to keep your profile low and dark, you can always pick the MSI MEG UNIFY series. If not, there are plenty of alternative options available, ranging from white motherboards like the Asus ROG Strix B550 to RGB-enabled Motherboards.
