List of Best x570 Motherboard

Below is the list of best x570 motherboard for Ryzen 3600X, 3700X, 3800X, 3900X, and 2700x.

  1. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
  2. Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus
  3. Asrock X570 Steel Legend
  4. MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi
  5. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme
  6. MSI X570 Godlike

  8. Asrock X570 Phantom Gaming Xi
  9. Asrock X570 Taichi

1. Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Best Under 200)

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite

So, let’s start with the cheapest options, as we just quickly don’t recommend spending much more than $200 on an X570 motherboard. Typically the entry-level models, they’re not much better than a B450 motherboard. 

You are paying a bit of a price premium for them, and really all you’re getting I suppose is PCIe 4.0. Which you’re not going to need for quite some time. Anyway, I have found recently that the sub $200 motherboards such as the MSI x570A pro. 

Just that board that one sucked quite a bit, but also the gigabyte X570 gaming X. I was expecting that to be much better than it was and it turned out to be not that great. In fact the early motherboard worth considering here would be the Asus Prime X570-P, and have to say for $170. 

It really is quite a good motherboard having said that, if you’re willing to spend $200, then I highly recommended the TUF gaming X570 plus Wi-Fi. In terms of WI performance you’re not really gaining much over the cheaper motherboard. 

So, for $30 more you’re not really getting a bit of VRM, but you are getting improved features, such as wireless AC, better audio, and better quality gigabyte networking. 

It’s the best option for you if you need budget x570 motherboard.

There’s USB type-c, and then two extra ports. Anyway, for $200 or less these are by far your best options, and again I recommend avoiding the MSI x570A Pro, the gaming plus and the gaming edge, due to their poor quality VRM.


2. Asrock X570 Taichi (Best Under 300)

Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus

Now for those of you spending around $300, you do have half a dozen X570 options to choose from. Also, none of them are what I would say could be considered bad, which I suppose isn’t a surprise, given it is a rather high price to pay for a motherboard supporting a mainstream socket.

Anyway the winner here for me is Asrock X570 Taichi. It did quite well in our VRM thermal testing, and for just $300, it packs loads of features. Also, if you don’t need PCIe 4.0 you may want to check out the x470 Taichi, it’s also a very good motherboard. 

You can find it for a little over $200 making it exceptionally good value x570 motherboard, as for the x570 Taichi. Moreover, it packs Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax, and it has like a full coverage heatsink, which appeals to some not others. It is a little inconvenient when it comes to changing drives, but it does a good job of cooling everything.

They also include 8 SATA ports, it has a really high-quality audio solution, also there’s intel Gigabit LAN, plenty of USB 3 ports, and it also supports BIOS flashback which is a really handy feature.

It’s also a great looking board with some nice lighting effects, if you are into that sort of thing. Finally as a runner-up I’d go with either the Gigabyte X570 or ultra audio Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming.


3. Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (Best Under 400)

Asrock X570 Steel Legend

For those of you with around 400 dollars to spend on an x570 motherboard, your options are limited to 4 choices. The cheapest of which is the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X for 350 dollars. 

Then there’s the Gigabyte x570 or S-Master for around $360,  The MSI Meg x570 Ace gaming for $370 dollars, and then finally we have their ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero for 360 dollars without Wi-Fi or 380 dollars with Wi-Fi. 

We’ve also found in our VRM thermal testing the Gigabyte x570 Oris Master really impressed. From MSI and Asrock VIII Hero, definitely my alternative option here. Both boards are exceptional, and I feel there really is no wrong choice between either the Master or the Hero. 

I like the Oris Master for a few reasons, firstly Gigabyte has been on top of their BIOS game ever since the 3rd gen Ryzen processors arrived. Support has been excellent, I really like how the Master features real thin heat sinks, and I very much like the new Gigabyte BIOS design. 

For those reasons, I’d go with the Oris Master, but I fully acknowledge that the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero is just as good. So, really pick whichever board you prefer the look of.

I have the ASRock X570 AQUA, but I haven’t tested that board so I can’t really go recommending it. I believe it is quite a limited run, so buying that board may be difficult anyway. 


4. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme

MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi

So, I like the Godlike, but ultimately it is the Oris Extreme that I’d buy,  if I had more money. Probably a bit harsh, they are really good boards, but still they don’t really make sense for a mainstream socket. Let’s just say that at $700, you’d really have to stick with the upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X.

Gigabytes slapped on some real, fine heat sinks for good measure. The back side of the motherboard is dressed in a massive aluminium backplate, which also helps to extract heat. 

On the front side you’ll be flat out finding any PCB under all those heat spreaders. The upside to all of this is of course a cool running board, plus as a bonus is the only passively cooled x570 motherboard on the market.

The feature list just goes on and on for days, you’ll get stuff like 10 Gigabit LAN, Wi-Fi 6, Triple M.2 slots, and many many more features. We won’t list them all, there’s also quite a few nifty features as well. One of them would be Q flash, which allows you to update the boards without even installing a CPU.

5. Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming Wi-Fi

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme

Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming Wi-Fi comes packed with some premium features. We may not be able to describe all of them here, but we will try to discuss some important ones. So, it has SupremeFX Audio, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, solid power delivery and more.

You can get this motherboard for under $200 dollars, though there are similarly specced boards that cost less. Best for you if you are looking for asus x570 motherboard.

If you don’t need Wi-Fi capability, the non-Wi-Fi version of the same board costs $30 less with the same specifications, making it easy to recommend if you plan on using Ethernet or have your own wireless card.


Conclusion

So, there you have it, there’s already plenty of x570 motherboards on offer. There are quite a few good options, though most of them are a bit pricey. It’s also great to see Asus made a comeback. Their B450 and Z390 boards were not great, the B450 motherboards in particular were pretty horrible. But they have managed to work some magic with the x570 series. 

Asrock and Gigabyte offer a few good hits mixed in with some not great options of course. We’ve included all the affordable X570 motherboards that we think are worth recommending.

 When it comes to MSI x570 motherboards, we’ve sort of not really mentioned or recommended any of their boards. The high end motherboards like the Godlike and the ACE, they’re quite good. They did well with their B450 motherboards range, their Z390 motherboards were good, and even their X399.
