1. Asus Rog Strix X470-F


The Asus Rog Strix X470-F motherboard stun a thousand eyes with its cyber outlook and it is one of the best motherboards for ryzen 2700x. This board from ASUS is all about raw performance along with its aesthetically pleasing looks. Also one can fully customize with all the performance tweaks in the software that the motherboard comes along.

A 5-ways optimization along with auto-tuning and Fan Xpert 4 does justice to the gaming motherboard from ASUS. Talking about the thermal management of the motherboard, ASUS has done a subtle job here as well with the heat dissipation. Both the M.2 slots also have streaky cut troughs, which ensures even airflow to the memory sticks.

Some basics about the motherboard include maximum memory support of 64GB where a clock speed of 3466MHz is achievable from each of the 4 DDR4 RAM Sticks. AMD X470 Chipset ensures support for Ryzen 7 2700x, and with an overall reliable liquid cooling, an overclocking enthusiast gets to unleash the processor’s ultimate potential.

The audio aspect of the board is subtle, to say the least. ROG’s SupremeFX audio technology is capable of delivering a flawless audio signal-to-noise ratio from the connection line. Aura Sync X Philips Hue adds all the glory that the motherboard undoubtedly deserves.

Positive
  • Components are of good quality, and the motherboard has stable overclocking capabilities.
  • The Aura RGB light-sync effects are gorgeous.
Negative
  • Temperatures shoot up under extreme load.

2. Asus Prime X470-Pro


Asus is just keeping an equivalent color scheme as we’ve seen previously with the Prime motherboards. Therefore you get a black PCB with strokes of silver and white.

You will also find the heat sinks on the board are silver and the I/O shield white. There are some blends of RGB in there as well.

Talking about the CPU socket you get the AMD’s AM4 socket, which will support each first and second generation of AMD Ryzen CPUs also APUs. Moreover, ASUS has even redesigned the VRM heat sinks on this motherboard, they’re larger and the overall appearance is better.

On the top of the motherboard and in between the 2 heat sinks, you get your 8-pin EPS connectors.

Another nice enhancement to the current version of the board that wasn’t on the X370 version is an I/O shield cover. Moving over to the sides of the motherboard you’ll see the four DDR4 DIMM slots, which are color-coded for twin channel operation.

As these aren’t metal reinforced you can remove your RAM sticks even with a graphics card installed. This motherboard on the sheets can support up to 64GB of DDR4-3466MHz memory.

Overall it is a nice motherboard to go with for the ones planning to get started with performance computing at a budget price and hence another reason why it is on our review list for today.

Positive
  • Supports Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 processors.
  • WiFi onboard along with USB 3.0.
Negative
  • A 5/10 GBit compatible Ethernet jack is missing from the board.

3. Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming


We love the fact about how Gigabyte can achieve so much more at such a lower than average price point with both Intel and AMD motherboards.

The newest X470 version in all probability gives all the other motherboards in this price point a run for their money and particularly with the 2nd Gen Ryzen support in this motherboard the competition just gets doubled. One clearly doesn’t require the complete Aura of Gigabyte’s impressive RGB lighting available in the X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming motherboard.

Excluding the stunning aesthetic appeal of the motherboard, the only setback of this motherboard is a trickle to only one M.2 drive support. However, all the heat sinks of the motherboard ensure effective cooling, where an 8+3 section design along with all the heat sinks linked to the heat pipe suffices the purpose.

The board is astonishingly well-equipped otherwise, housing the same old six SATA 6Gbps ports, a pair of both USB 3.0 and 2.0 headers, and a formidable eight fan headers as well.

Gigabyte’s fan management system is effective in this case with both the EFI and the motherboard’s standalone software for Windows.

Therefore combined with an interior header for temperature probes which can be put to use to manage fan speeds, there are lots of other scopes here for building a strong air or liquid cooled PC while tweaking to your heart’s content.

Positive
  • Reliable overclocking is achievable
  • All new XMP Profile
Negative
  • No LLC

4. Asus Rog Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi)


With the launch of the second generation of Ryzen CPUs came the existence of the updated X470 chipset. ASUS has introduced the new ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) that incorporates the new chipset and we will discuss how the motherboard stands against its competitors. The Crosshair VII was the highest offering motherboard from ASUS during the time of its launch.

This motherboard was made keeping in mind about those serious overclocking enthusiasts who can attain sub-ambient cooling temperatures to overclock the Ryzen CPUs to their maximum possible clock speeds.

Apart from that, a quick recap will tell us that the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi is made around the AM4 socket and X470 chipset to support the new second generation of AMD Ryzen CPUs.

It comes with a redesigned 10+2 part power section to achieve a balance in between optimum cooling and performance ratio that utilizes the Ryzen 8-core CPUs to their full potential.

There are also a total of 4 DIMM slots for excellent support of 64 GB DDR4 memory which can be clocked up to 3600MHz.

Positive
  • Dual x4 PCI-E 3.0 M.2 with a strong VRM.
  • Tons of overclocking features.
Negative
  • The power consumption of automatic settings is high.

5. MSI X470 Gaming Plus


The MSI X470 is meant for the gamers. This specific ATX motherboard has a black and red color scheme which has similarities with the MSI’s official gaming dragon clad theme, along with customizable RGB backlighting.

Whereas some users might not accept the truth about RGB with the first look on the motherboard, the implementation of RGB backlighting is integrated and set bright on emphasized parts of the motherboard, besides, the style preference is just a matter of perspective which is loved by most of you.

The basics of any motherboard review start right down with the performance aspects and the X470 Gaming Plus is a smart performing magician in this case for the price it currently sits at. The performance is competitive as well with an AM4 socket hosting 2nd Gen Ryzen CPUs for the motherboard.

Similarly, in comparison to the MSI MEG X399 Creation TR4 motherboard, the non-UEFI POST boot time for this motherboard was faster. Audio performance is decent as well, as it is equipped with a Realtek ALC892 HD audio codec. The overclocking experience with the mother is painless as well as you can easily manage to clock your Ryzen 7 2700x to hit its apex speed 4.0 GHz and that too quite simply.

Positive
  • Good overclocking potentials along with an excellent heat sink for the M.2 drive.
  • A maximum clock speed of 3600MHz is achievable with DDR4 memories
Negative
  • Not the best performance out there.
