Let's not waste anymore time and dive straight into what we consider the best AM4 motherboards available this 2019.

Our Best AM4 Pick
ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero

ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero

Best motherboard for high-end gaming builds

Asus have topped one of our best of guides once again and this time it's with there super impressive ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero. Immensely powerful aesthetics and brilliant performance are just the tip of the iceberg of what this great board has to offer.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero (X470) is by far the most expensive AM4 socket in this best of guide but we feel it justifies it's price tag thanks to the cutting edge performance levels, newly enhanced build quality and the bucket load of features this board comes with.

If what you're looking for is brilliant performance wrapped inside a gnarly, RGB riddled package then look no further, the ROG Crosshair ticks all those boxes and then some.

Our Runner Up
GIGABYTE X470 AORUS Gaming 7 WIFI

GIGABYTE X470 AORUS Gaming 7 WIFI

Runner up AM4 motherboard for gaming builds

The X470 AORUS from Gigabyte falls second to ASUS in both price and performance, but only just. Many of the specifics are identical between these two boards so separating them became very difficult. What we will say is the Gigabyte would make a worthy addition to any new build and is certainly one to consider.

The first thing that struck me when viewing the AORUS Gaming 7 was it's striking looks. Most (sensible) people probably make features and performance their number one priorities, however, we simply couldn't ignore how well this thing looks at the heart of an AMD build.

Looks aside though, the performance levels of this board are extremely high thanks to it's 10 + 2 Phase IR Digital PWM design. Overclocking was clearly high on Gigabyte's agenda when developing this product as the potential is pretty impressive.

This board has a whole bunch of cool features which we explore in more detail further down, but ultimately it's our runner up and is another superb product from Gigabyte.

The best performance B450
ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming

ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming

Best performing B450 motherboard

The B450-F is truly the best of both worlds, great performance levels and features at an affordable price tag. It's what every consumer wants. It comes equipped with ASUS's latest 5-way optimization for maximum overclocking potential. A feature that is only implemented into ASUS's best products.

This is ASUS's second entry into our best of guide and it's hard to argue against it's position as best performing B450. It comes to shelves at sub $120 which we feel is incredible value for money. The b450 range was purpose designed to cater for lower budget builds whilst still offering solid performance. There is no better example of this than the excellent ASUS ROG Strix B450-f Gaming motherboard.

If you're looking for a powerful board which has plenty of features and benefits at an affordable price then stress no more, ASUS has you covered.

The best Value B450M
MSI Arsenal Gaming B450 Tomahawk Max

MSI Arsenal Gaming B450 Tomahawk Max

The best all round B450M

The B450 Tomahawk Max has been geared towards gaming and does not impress in our performance tests. Quality features such as 64GB of 3,466Mhz RAM support, Extended Heatsink Design, and Mystic Light RGB are just some of the features you find with this board.

This is by far the most reasonably priced board we've looked at in this guide, don't be put off by its low price tag however, this board comes to the table with a fantastic array of features which cater towards gamers and enthusiasts alike.

MSI's signature Mystic Light has been utilized in this board and when paired with it's exciting new design creates a really attractive aesthetic that would make a great base for any gaming rig.

Best X399 motherboard
GIGABYTE X399 AORUS Xtreme

GIGABYTE X399 AORUS Xtreme

Best motherboard for TR4 socket

The biggest and most powerful motherboard in our list comes in the shape of the Gigabyte X399 AORUS Xtreme. It is however a TR4 socket motherboard but it's always good to compare the features and benefits of it with our top AM4 picks.

The Gigabyte X399 AORUS Xtreme is a bit of a curve ball because technically speaking it isn't an AM4 socket motherboard. It's a TR4 socket motherboard which is purpose built to support AMD's Thread ripper CPU's, the most powerful CPU's AMD have designed.

We've included this in the list to 1, give people who are building a rig around a Thread Ripper our best TR4 recommendation, but 2, to show people the differences between the two varying board.

Best Mini-ITX AM4 Motherboard
ASUS ROG Strix X470-I Gaming

ASUS ROG Strix X470-I Gaming

Best Motherboard for small form builds

The only motherboard in our list which caters towards the consumer looking to buy and build small. The mini-ITX from ASUS is super powerful for it's size and price. It also comes with some great features which are geared towards gamers making it a perfect fit for a LAN build.

If what you're looking to build is a small form factor PC that has a very small footprint then you must go with Mini-ITX for the form. The ASUS ROG STRIX X470-I gaming is the perfect starter point if this is your main agenda.

It comes with a bunch of cool features and benefits such as 32GB of RAM capacity, more than enough to perform most AAA game titles, and built in WIFI which you normally don't get with Mini-ITX.

How We Choose

How we choose and determine our recommendations is something we get asked all the time, and the answer is a very simple one really. It all boils down to our dedicated team of PC enthusiasts who spend hours researching and debating the newest technologies available. Staying ahead of the curve is one of our top priorities.

The following list is criteria that we implement into each product to make sure it's suitable for our audience. The categories are as follows:

  1. Staying up to date. No one wants to receive outdated information, so we do our due diligence to ensure we’re always on top of industry trends!
  2. Research is key. Tech is complicated and can be multifaceted, so we scoured the internet to find the motherboards everyone is using, what components are working best with those boards, and several other key factors.
  3. Narrowing down. Once we have a pool of candidates, we start narrowing down based on things such as: features, reviews, personal experience, etc. The final candidates are the ones that made the biggest impact.
  4. Performance Levels.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Gaming Motherboard

So above is stripped back, sneak peak at our list of best AM4 Socket motherboards. Now, you might be asking yourself, that's brilliant but what actually separates these boards from one another? What should I be looking for when deciding which to choose?

They're great questions and ones people ask regularly. We've decided to to break down the most important aspects of the motherboard and explain what they do and why they're important. We do this to educate you as an informed consumer is much more likely to make the correct component choice.

The following are some of the aspects of a motherboard you should be taking into consideration when researching which one to purchase.

Form Factor

Form factor, for lack of a better word, is the physical size of the board. In this article we cover a broad range of mother board forms so it's a great point to discuss the features and benefits of the main types. The most popular forms range from E-ATX (designed for PC enthusiasts looking to build the best of the best) right down to the Mini-ITX (for consumers who want a build with an extremely low footprint).

The footprint is something you need to figure out at the start of the build process. If you start a build not knowing the form factor of your board you might find at the end of the build certain components just won't fit. Which is going to be annoying, time consuming and potentially costly.

Below we have put the different forms into a chart so you can compare:

Form Factor
Form FactorSize (in inches)
Mini-ITX6.7 x 6.7
Mini-ATX5.9 x 5.9
microATX9.6 x 9.6
ATX12 x 9.6
eATX12 x 13

There you have the 5 most popular motherboard form factors and their corresponding dimensions. This should clear up any confusion you may have on form factor going forward. It's not just size that separates each of the forms though, let's waste no time getting into the socket and chipsets.

Socket

There are 2 main types of motherboard socket, the LGA 1151 and AMD's AM4. In this article we're concentrating on the AM4 socket, obviously.

The socket is the physical slot on the motherboard that holds your CPU in place. Intel has the LGA1151 and AMD have their AM4. This means AMD's latest 2700x processor WILL NOT be compatible with any of the LGA1151 boards and vice versa.

Please never try to force the wrong processor into the incorrect socket type as it can cause fatal damage to your newly purchased components. If you're ever unsure when putting components together always check our how to build a gaming PC article.

The great thing about AMD chips is they're only in their second generation so pretty much all the last couple of generation motherboards will support both 1st and 2nd gen chips.

Why not check out our hardware compatibility article to fully understand what components pair best with each other.

ProcessorIntel Core i9-9900KAMD Ryzen 3900X
SocketLGA 1151AM4

Chipsets

Probably the most important factor when choosing which motherboard to start with is the chipset. The chipset, for those that are unaware, is the key factor in determining which features your motherboard comes with. The features range from PCIe lanes and SATA ports right through to overclocking support and the USB generation.

You really need to make sure you know your motherboards chipset before your start buying the other components or you might find yourself in a position where you've bought a piece of hardware that has nowhere to live.

Also, with technology advancements moving quicker than ever, always check to see if your specs are up-to-date. There are a number of older and cheaper boards that don't have M.2 support or DDR4 RAM for example.

Below is a rough chart of varied motherboards and what their chipsets have to offer:

Intel

6 PCIe 2.0
X4702 PCIe 3.062210Yes
6 PCIe 2.0

Memory

Memory is one of the most important hardware components you can buy when you're putting an AMD build together. Due to the nature and build features of the Ryzen chips, the best way to maximize performance power is by equipping your build with rapid RAM.

Therefore you need to make sure your motherboard can accommodate the RAM you are wanting to pair it against. Things to be mindful of are: Max supported memory, memory speed, multi-channel support, and how many memory slots are on the board.

The easiest way to check whether your motherboard is compatible with the RAM you currently own or want to buy is in the motherboard spec's. It will tell you straight away how much and what speed RAM it can accommodate.

Alternatively you can have a look at your hardware compatibility page which should answer most of your questions.

Memory Location

Particularly important when purchasing a smaller form board is the location of the memory. You're probably asking yourself now, why would that be a problem, as long as it fits? Well strictly speaking, the memory location is rarely going to be an issue. However, if you're mad into overclocking you may have purchased a large, aftermarket custom CPU cooler.

In some cases, the larger than normal heat sink can become a real problem. Just make sure if you are choosing a larger cooler that the RAM is located far enough away to accommodate for both.

PCI slots

Peripheral Component Interconnect, or PCI, is the physical slot in which you can expand the capabilities of your basic system.

This includes, but not limited to things like:

  • Wifi card
  • Video card
  • Extra USB ports
  • NVMe expansion cards

There are two types of PCI slots: PCI and PCI Express (PCIe). The PCIe slot is a larger, faster version of the PCI slot and usually houses your graphics card. 

If you plan on having dual GPU's running then it's always important to make sure you have enough PCI slots. A lot of the time, manufacturers will compromise slot's to reduce the price, so making sure all your cards and expansion packs are catered for should be highly prioritized.

The other thing to look for is plenty of spacing. If you’re planning on running multiple GPUs that are large, you may need PCIe slots that are further apart to allow for adequate space.

Fan Headers

And finally we come to PWM headers, probably more popularly know as fan headers, which are the connector's between board and CPU fans. They're important because overclocking is becoming more and more popular, meaning demand for cooling has in turn become much greater.

What does that have to do with PWM headers you ask? Well, case manufacturers are implementing more and more fans in their cases, so to make use of them all you need a certain number of PWM headers.

It's not a massive deal in all honesty but something you should consider when buy a case with a lot of fans because a cheap board might not have the compatibility to accommodate all of them,

This is the second board from ASUS and comes to shelves much more affordable than our premium range offerings from both ASUS and Gigabyte. The b450 range was purposely released to try and target budget PC builders whilst still offering solid features and benefits.

The first thing we noticed about the B450-f Gaming from ROG was the design, its a new style which wavers from ROG's signature red and black theme to take it's own journey towards black and grey. Most noticeable is the impressive looking chipset heatsink which has an almost futuristic style ROG logo.

Looks aside, the performance of this board does not disappoint, RAM support of upto 64GB 3,200Mhz is more than enough to smash out all your AAA game titles and multi-tasking needs. It has dual M.2 slots which will ensure future expansion is an option if you ever need that facility. Numerous amounts of USB 3.1 gen 1 & 2 slots make sure you're bang up-to-date with the latest tech as well.

#4

MSI Arsenal Gaming B450 Tomahawk Max

Specs

  • Socket: AM4
  • Chipset: B450
  • Memory Slots: 4 X 288pin
  • Max Memory: 64GB Dual Channel
  • Max memory frequency: 3,466 (OC) MHz
  • PCIe slots:
    • 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot
    • 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot
    • 3 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots
  • SATA ports: 6
  • M.2 Ports: 1
  • USB Ports:
    • 1 x USB C
    • 2 x USB 3.1 Gen2
    • 2 x USB 3.1 Gen1
    • 6 x USB 2.0

The Arsenal Gaming B450 Tomahawk from MSI is officially the cheapest budget range board on our list, however, don't be totally fooled with the price tag. MSI have had to make some compromises to achieve the low price range but they have kept the core features gamers are most concerned about.

64GB of 3,466Mhz is the maximum this board can handle but I think we're all in agreement when we say that for now that is more than enough for your AAA game titles and multi-tasking purposes. MSI have also equipped the B450 with an extended heatsink which ensures high end CPU's will run efficiently and at their maximum potential.

Unfortunately, the Tomahawk only comes with 1 M.2 slot meaning future expansion is going to be fairly difficult if you're looking at using multiple M.2's. It's easy to let the tomahawk off though seeing as though it comes to shelves just over the $100 mark.

One of our favourite boards here at Wepc that is great for anyone looking to build a decent first time gaming rig.

#5

GIGABYTE X399 AORUS Xtreme

  • Socket: TR4 (Thread Ripper)
  • Chipset: X399
  • Memory Slots: 8 X 288pin
  • Max Memory: 128GB Dual Channel
  • Max memory frequency: 3,600 MHz
  • PCIe slots:
    • 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16
    • 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x8
    • 1 x PCI Express x1 slot
  • SATA ports: 6
  • M.2 Ports: 3
  • USB Ports:
    • 1 x Type-C port
    • 8 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports
    • 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2
    • 4 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports
    • 4 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports

Strictly speaking the X399 shouldn't be in the best of AM4 motherboards guide because it simply isn't AM4 socket supportive. Now you're probably thinking why have you added it then? Well, the X399 from Gigabyte has been added to showcase the differences between itself and our top AM4 picks in terms of features and compatibility.

The Thread Ripper from AMD, their flagship CPU, is becoming more and more popular so it would be rude not to cover what we believe to be the best TR4 motherboard available.

One of the first differences you'll notice is the form of this board, its an E-ATX which, if you've read the entire article, is the biggest of the "popular" form factors. With extra dimensional space usually comes more features and benefits.

This board has 8 Quad Channel DDR4 RAM slots which is double your average ATX board and has a maximum capacity of 128GB. I'll not bother telling you that's overkill because i'm sure you're already aware. Further to RAM, the X399 comes equipped with 3 turbo M.2 slots with their own individual heatsinks to make sure your SSD's are running optimally.

The whole board is covered in Gigabytes signature Auro Sync RGB and just looks pure class. The board comes in at over $300 but gives you the base for something really special.

ASUS ROG Strix X470-I Gaming

Specs

  • Socket: AM4
  • Chipset: X470 Mini-ITX
  • Memory Slots: 2 X 288pin
  • Max Memory: 32GB Dual Channel
  • Max memory frequency: 3,600 MHz
  • PCIe slots:
    • 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode)
    • 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x8 mode)
  • SATA ports: 4
  • M.2 Ports: 1
  • USB Ports:
    • 1 x Type-C port
    • 4 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 port(s)
    • 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 port(s)
    • 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 port(s)(2 at mid-board)
    • 2 x USB 2.0 port(s) (2 at mid-board)

Finally we come to our last entry from ASUS and it comes in the shape of their incredibly potent X470-I Gaming motherboard which is in the form factor of Mini-ITX. We always like to add a Mini-ITX addition to our list because we understand there is a real market for small builds are people are usually fairly interested in discovering what this form has to offer.

As with all Mini-ITX boards, compromises have been made to accommodate such small physical dimensions. The first noticeable change is how this board only comes with 2 DDR4 RAM slots, however, they have managed to get 3,600Mhz support out of this little board and a maximum capacity of 32GB which is impressive.

It comes with 1 M.2 slot which has it's own private heatsink to help dissipate heat creating a better environment for the SSD to operate in. 1 PCIe slot and a bunch of SATA ports basically finish off the motherboard.

One thing we really enjoyed seeing on this was the onboard WiFi adapter that you don't usually get with Mini-ITX boards so that was certainly refreshing.

Overall a great little motherboard which is highly recommended by the whole team.

Which gaming motherboard is best for you?

So, there you have it, our best AM4 motherboards of 2019, the question now is which one one is most suited to your needs? Well hopefully the little category headers have helps you establish that..

We tried to cater to all needs here by offering a couple of high end options, mid range options and a budget option. There is even a TR4 board in amongst the action for anyone potentially thinking about going down the Thread Ripper route.

For me the 2 stand out boards in the list have to be the Crosshair VII Hero from ASUS  and the MSI Arsenal Gaming board, respectively for very different reasons. The Crosshair shows off raw performance punching power in a superb looking RGB riddled package, whereas the Arsenal Gaming has the charm of a cheap board but packs solid price/performance value.

 

Conclusion

We come to the end of our best AM4 motherboard guide and hopefully we have covered all the bases when recommending the top boards in today's market.
