A very good B550 motherboard for the price. Will handle pretty much any 3rd gen Ryzen processor you throw at it.

I'm considering building a new PC soon, and it's been a very long time since my last build.

I'm planning to go down the Ryzen route. What motherboard would you recommend?

edit: heat added btw

for B550, probably a MSI Mortar or ASUS ROG Strix
OP you might want to alter your original post saying it will "handle pretty much any Ryzen processor that you throw at it" because the b550 chipset severely limits what processors it will work with.

You'll end up with buyers getting it for their 3400g that they might want to upgrade later only to find it doesnt work.

This only works with 3rd gen Ryzens and most of those there isnt any stock of.

What’s your system budget?

Start with looking at the above YouTube link.

Cheers pal. I'd looked at the Mortar. Will take a peep at the ASUS.

Yeah it's a fair point. Edited the post.
Heat added. Nice to see some more b550 options in the sub £100 bracket.

Do Asus do a ROG Strix B550 mATX board? I'm on the lookout for one so I'm genuinely curious. I've only saw the TUF gaming versions at this form factor.

Looks like I got confused with the TUF gaming one, apologies. But yeah, an ROG in a mATX would be awesome

Ah no worries. Asus are doing a cashback deal, I posted it on here. Tempted but I've heard they're not great at paying out...
Rgb headers?

No idea beyond Ryzen seeming to be the obvious choice. Very much in the discovery phase of this project.
Decent deal. Here's the Gamer's Nexus video comparing B550 boards (this board shows up at 20:00):
"You'll end up with buyers getting it for their 3400g that they might want to upgrade later only to find it doesnt work."
Does not officially support the apus but some ppl are saying different but YMMV and YPYM&YTYC
Will these mobo prices tumble as people panic buy pcie 4.0 compatible boards for the new Nvidia 3000 series gpu's?

I'm not sure if you're mistaken, if I don't understand what you mean or if I'm mistaken (apologies for any one of those in advance) - these B550 boards support PCIe 4.0, if people are panic buying them I can only imagine it helping to keep the prices up. If a desire for PCIe 4.0 support affects the sales of anything right now, it'll be the B450 boards.

what about MSI Bazooka?
koskesh09/09/2020 01:14

what about MSI Bazooka?


The Bazooka is the lower tier variant of the Mortar, it's more or less the same for general purpose, but the main differences are:

SATA: The Mortar has 2 more SATA ports (6 vs 4 on the Bazooka)
Audio: The Mortar has a better audio chipset (Realtek ALC1220 vs Realtek ALC892 on the Bazooka) and S/PDIF output
Rear IO: The Mortar has two additional audio jacks and replaces two of the Bazooka's USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and (probably more notably) a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
Ethernet: The Mortar supports 2.5Gbps, the Bazooka supports 1Gbps
