This should be getting more heat! What a deal, best midrange motherboard for Ryzen 3000 for sure
Thanks for posting this been humming and arrrring over what board to go with this seems to be the one being Ryzen 5 support out the box.
It can actually run OC on 3950x without thermal throttling
Got this board it's been good so far

any of the x570 will support the 3000 series out of the box (3950 may need a bios update)

Yeah I know was on the side lines of getting B450 or X470 and risking it not being on the latest firmware. £60 cheaper if I went the other way but not worth the hassle plus this will hold its value better I think in a few years.

Why spend so much on a MB if your only buying an R5? I would personally save £82 and get a MSI B450-A PRO MAX and bump up the CPU or GPU.

The MSI Max series B450 boards come 3000 series BIOS ready. There are other boards with flashback feature that do not require a 1000/2000 cpu to update the BIOS. There is no need to take any risk.

Why not go MSI B450 Tomahawk Max? Its been shown it can handle a 3950X at stock just as well as a good X570. The Tomahawk Max can easily OC/run PBO on an R5 or R7.

Know what your saying but just seems daft to scimp on the core of the pc. Like I can always upgrade the cpu in a year or 2 if that becomes the bottle neck. The board looks like it can handle nearly anything chucked at it and then some plus it's got some future proofing.

There is only 1 generation of cpu left to come on the AM4 platform. I really don’t see the X570 as any more future proof. The last system I had by the time I wanted to upgrade the cpu the cpu socket was obsolete. Each to their own as we don’t have a crystal ball but I’d rather put the extra elsewhere in the system where I will get benefits today.

This, the x570 boards are mostly for people who won't to throw money at something that looks fancy. Performance and future proof wise they're no different, this one for instance won't support anything the Tomahawk max cant use. Same chips, same speeds, same overclocking.

This should be bought by people who love tinkering and will spend hours in the BIOS for their own pleasure.
Very split between this and the Aorus Elite.
The Elite has better connectivity and VRM but lacks a bloody post debugging led
Probably the best X570 VRM for the price.
Best price on the WiFi edition? Think it's £185 from AWD but not sure...

Heated OP, looks like an awesome board!

Chipset, yea of course. But go and see how PCB of so many x570 boards run extremely hot when they overclock 3950x

Actually I bought this board because it supported SPIDF audio and came with out of the box support for 3rd gen Ryzen. It's been great so far, excellent price for it too.

Pretty sure the Mortar Max supports it, and 3rd gen ryzen out of the box, for 80 quid. Suit yourself though, if you can afford it its nice to have a premium board.

I replied to Ryzen 5 being used not 9
Expired? Showing as £189.59.
Just finished putting the pc together been running it couple of hours solid so far. I updated the bios before doing anything picked up ram straight away nvme ssd worked straight away.

Yeah was more money than the B450 but I don't think it would of been as easy.

One thing I did notice though it has hdmi port on the board but it won't boot without a video card installed which is a shame.

I just learnt the motherboard port only works if your cpu has integrated graphics which mine doesn't so that's a good lesson to remember.

Ryzen 3000 series are all AM4 chipset CPUs, including Ryzen 5,7 and 9. + What's the point going for x570 board if you don't plan going higher than Ryzen 5 series? Good B450 boards will provide same performance for Ryzen 5 series for 50% of this board price.

PCIE4 for high IO NVME and next/upcoming gen GPUs.
So in a year or 2 am I right in thinking I can just drop a Ryzen 7 or 9 straight into this board?
