Hi, any recommendations on a motherboard with main aim to overclock and a good VRM (not overheating etc) for a AMD 9 3900X.

Thanks

Need a budget.
Don't get a 3800x, waste of money compared to the 3700x.

Sorry, it's the 3900X.

What are you using the 3900x for?


Gaming, photography/video editing, coding

Do you make money with the editing or coding? Also do you need pcie4?

No, last build was 8 years ago.

I have bought the same cpu as you and will build it up over the holidays. After a lot of research I went with the Gigabyte Aorus Master. It has a good VRM and power phase along with a (hopefully) mature bios. RMA if you ever need it is UK based and that is important to me too.

Maybe consider a 3700x and a b450 max board

If it is biggest bang per buck I agree. If you are after top performance only you can decide based on your work type on the platform.

To me 3900x is more suited for those making money from their work, but ofc if you have the money then I can't stop you.
Am looking for top performance as I won't need to upgrade for 10 years

Exactly the same situation as myself. Last build lasted over 7 years. It really depends on what you use it for. I need as much ram and cores as possible for work hence the 3900x. However if it is gaming and general usage then the lower 65w 3700x is the better choice. Only you can decide that.
Am getting the 3900x for £429, 3700x is £279 , £150 saving hmmm tough choice
