Finding the best X570 motherboard is relatively straightforward once you know what features you need. Despite what you might think, choosing the best motherboard for gaming, overclocking, and beyond is pretty important as all your components communicate through the board. You may not need to splash out for the enthusiast-level boards if you are just planning on gaming, however, you still want something reliable. If you have chosen to go down the Ryzen 5000 route, possible to save money, then you will want yourself a snazzy X570 motherboard to pair with it. The old X570 flagship has since been replaced by the X670 but with the new generation comes a new socket also.

Ryzen 5000 chips are backward compatible, meaning you could opt for an X470 if you wanted, however, we strongly recommend one of the best X570 boards instead. If your budget could stretch to a Ryzen 7000 CPU, you should definitely consider upgrading to the latest generation but if not don’t worry, the older-gen components still perform very well for gaming.

X570 Motherboards explained

X570 motherboards all include the AM4 socket, which supports the much-acclaimed AMD Ryzen 5000 processors with new Zen3 architecture. But handily, it’s also backwards-compatible with the Ryzen 3000 chips too. X570 offers ground-breaking full PCle 4.0 support and M.2 Gen 4 storage, handy for those with a PCI Express 4.0-compliant M.2 SSD.

Many come with at least two ultra-fast M.2 slots, Wifi 6, and the latest USB standard, 3.2 Gen 2. Overall it’s a mid-range option designed for semi-enthusiast gamers, overclockers, and creators with mid-range parts to add, but there’s a huge spectrum of models on offer here for all budgets.

Best X570 Motherboard: Asus X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Wi-Fi

Intended Build

AMD – High-end

Form Factor


Overclocking Support






  • Robust power
  • 12 USB ports
  • Wifi 6
  • M.2 slots with heatsinks
  • Expensive

This is a superb high-end board, perfect for overclockers and gamers looking for robust power, tons of overclocking features and unmatched connectivity. It’s a subtle design, typical all-black except for a gray steel diagonal stripe. The RGBs across this stripe are tastefully done, but if you want an all-out lightshow, you can use the RGB headers and control them with Aura Sync software.

Power is robust, with 16 IR3555 PowIRstages handling 60 amps each, and two large heatsinks covering it, which keep it running cool even during overclocking. The chipset is also actively-cooled by another heatsink. This motherboard is designed for overclocking, with buttons to reset or flash the BIOS.

The BIOS is heavily-featured, especially on overclocking, and easy to use, with an EZ and Advanced mode for different levels of user knowledge. There’s even a handy Favorites section to make your most-used features quick-access. This board also includes voltage read points, a rare but very useful feature for seeing how it handles overclocking (which of course, it does superbly).

And if you’re looking to take advantage of the X570’s PCl 4.0 compatibility, this might be the board for you. It has 64GBps M.2 Key-M slots that support a PCI Express Gen4 x4 connection. Of course, these M.2 slots have their own heatsinks too.

If you need to install twin or triple CrossFire cards, or SLI twin cards, you’re covered by three PCl Express x16 slots. There’s also one PCle x1 slot, and four DDR DIMM slots. These DIMM slots take 128GB of memory up to an extremely nippy 4,600MHz. 

It also comes loaded with a whopping 12 USB ports, including eight USB 3.1 Gen 2. Few boards can match this. There’s also eight SATA 3.0 storage ports. Wifi is in the name, and it’s definitely premium in this model, with Wifi 6 integration. The network adaptor is Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, which supports the new 802.11ax wireless standard, transfers up to 2.4Gbps.

There’s also two RJ-45 ports, one connected to Realtek RTL8125-CG, which is ridiculously fast but not so mainstream. Luckily, the other port is connected to mainstream Intel i211AT Gigabit NIC. In terms of audio, it comes with a SupremeFX S1220 audio codec.This is similar to the mainstream high-end Realtek ALC1220 audio codec most X570 motherboards have.

Direct 8 Phases IR Digital VRM Solution with PowIRstage


1 x DisplayPort 2 x HDMI ports 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port (red) 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports 1 x USB Type-C port, with USB 3.2 Gen 2 support

  • Two M.2 slots
  • Amazing value
  • True 8-phase power delivery
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port

A great all-rounder mini-ITX board that manages to pack more than average into such a compact model. This includes a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, four SATA ports, WiFi 6 support, and a premium Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec with 7.1 surround sound.

It even manages two M.2 slots. However, one of the M.2 slots is stacked on the chipset heatsink. This isn’t ideal but then again, no other ITX board has managed to include two M.2 slots. Like most, it’s a neutral jet black all over, except for a nice brushed aluminum finish on the heatsink. A base plate increases rigidity.

There’s a fair amount of RGB on the right-hand side, controllable via RGB Fusion 2.0 software. If that’s not enough for you, you can make use of the extra RGB headers. Power delivery is strong, with a true 8-phase VRM using an Infineon IR35201 8-phase (6+2) controller. This means the board can handle some heavy-duty overclocking, making it suitable for gamers.

The two DIMM slots support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and a 4,400MHz overclock. This isn’t the highest, but clocking over 3,600MHz doesn’t do that much anyway. They have a single-sided locking mechanism and are also armored with Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable PCIe and Memory Armor.

Some slots are reinforced with armor, such as the PCle and DIMM slots.

There are two fan headers so you can add additional fans, and control them through the BIOS, or using Smart Fan 5 software. The BIOS has an Easy and Advanced mode, with a nice layout and plenty of overclocking options in the Tweaker section under Advanced.

Overall, there’s very little to dislike about this ITX. It’s strong in all areas with great power, efficiency, overclocking, and plenty of ports. The only thing missing is a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Best X570 for overclocking: ASRock Taichi

14 Power Phase design


8 SATA3, 2 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4 & SATA3), 1 Hyper M.2 (PCIe Gen4 x4) 3 USB 3.2 Gen2 (Rear Type A+C, Front Type-C), 8 USB 3.2 Gen1 (2 Front, 6 Rear)

  • Excellent overclocking
  • 802.11ax Wifi 6
  • Amazing RGB
  • Not the most power efficient
  • No voltage monitoring points

Another great low to mid-range choice, the ASRock Taichi offers great value with a 14-phase power delivery, Wifi 6 in the form of 802.11ax, and three M.2 slots. We really like the looks of this one since it’s more unique than most with a black and gray design and hints of gold. Still neutral to match most builds, yet a bit more interesting.

And if you’re unimpressed with some of the other motherboards skimping on lighting, the Taichi has you covered. There are three RGB zones on the chipsets and rear IO, as well as down the right side.

A premium aluminum shroud also covers and makes direct contact with the M.2s and chipset heatsinks for better cooling. Headers near the CPU socket make it ideal for pairing with AMD’s Wraith Prism RGB cooler, included with many Ryzen processors.

Four single-latch DIMMs support up to 128GB of DDR4 memory at up to 4666MHz. Connectivity includes eight SATA ports, which share no bandwidth, and one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (10Gbps). There are also three M.2 ports, two of which support PCIe 4.0 x4.

There’s no dual BIOS switch or onboard voltage monitoring points. However, there are power, reset, clear CMOS buttons, and debug LEDs.

Best budget X570 Motherboard: MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus


Form Factor


Power Stages



PCIe 4.0, Ethernet USB, HDMI



  • Very cheap
  • Above-average voltage regulator
  • Can overclock mid-range CPUs
  • Not the most efficient

The MSI MPG X570 allows you to take advantage of all the X570 basics for less. There’s a few budget X570’s around, but this is the best of the bunch. Where it stands out is the voltage regulator, with eight 46A MOSFETs, which is an improvement on other budget competitors. The audio codec is also ALC1220, which is commonly seen on models at $200+

So what can this handle? Well, it should be able to handle all the Ryzen 5000 chips, although pairing a high-end chip with this motherboard would be unlikely. As for standard mid-range chips, it can comfortably overclock them, which is all you should need.

Connectivity-wise, there’s one Type-C and one Type-A with speeds up to 10Gbps and four USB3 Gen 1 ports with speeds up to 5Gbps. There’s also two USB 2.0 ports for keyboards/mice, and even a PS/2 port for older keyboards/mice.

Full PCle 4.0 support is still included with one PCIe 4.0 x4 slot and two PCIe 4.0 x4 / SATA slots. As such, you could even add a second card in x4 mode via a CrossFire solution.

In summary

If you are deadset on buying the best X570 motherboard then the above options should have you covered. There are a number of viable options for almost every budget, giving you a stable base for your Eyzen 5000 gaming PC.
