These are the best motherboards to use with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

Getting the motherboard right in your PC build is important since it determines what CPU you can use. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a mid-range processor with six cores and 12 threads but can be used with A520, B550, and X570 motherboards. We’ve rounded up the best motherboards for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

Premium X570

Staff pick

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X motherboards may be mid-tier, but they can stretch their legs with an X570 chipset-touting motherboard like the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E. Not only would you be able to overlock the CPU without issue, but you also enjoy PCIe 4.0 support, high-quality components, Wi-Fi 6, and Gen 4 M.2 slots capable of unidirectional transfer speeds up to 64GB/s, rapid LAN ports, and plenty of RGB options to light up your office.

Budget pick

Gigabyte A520 AORUS Elite motherboard

While not quite as advanced as our top pick, the A520 AORUS Elite from Gigabyte is still worth considering for your Ryzen 5 5600X. It doesn’t come with PCIe 4.0 support but comes with a decent VRM setup, M.2 slot, and will work perfectly fine with your Ryzen 5000-series CPU. You’ll also save some money for other components.

The MSI MPG B550 Gaming Edge Wi-Fi may have a mid-range chipset from AMD, but this motherboard has some killer features. You’ve got 2.5Gb LAN, Wi-Fi 6, decent VRM and actual cooling, PCIe 4.0, M.2 slots with one thermal pad, and a 10+2+1 power phase design.

Compact board

ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming is a worthy motherboard for more compact PC builds. It’s a Mini-ITX board, rocking fewer DIMM slots for RAM, fewer PCIe slots, and some other omissions, but still manages to come with an 8+2 phase power delivery design and adequate VRM cooling. There’s even PCIe 4.0 support.

Best design

NZXT N7 B550 motherboard

NZXT makes some killer PC cases, but the company also makes some exceptionally well-designed motherboards. The NZXT N7 B550 may not have the class-leading X570 chipset, but it doesn’t need it. You’re getting plenty of expansion points, more fan headers than you’ll likely require, and a layout that’ll look amazing in most PC builds. NZXT pushed the B550 chipset to its limit with the N7.

Entry X570

ASUS proved X570 motherboards don’t have to cost too much compared to other chipsets. The ASUS Prime X570-P has all the bells and whistles you’d usually find on an X570 board but comes with a lower price. You’ll be able to enjoy solid VRMs with passive cooling, PCIe 4.0 support, and high-quality components.

$252 at Amazon

Enthusiast build

This is a motherboard you likely won’t need or be able to afford, but it’s an insane foundation for a powerful and enthusiast PC build. ASUS held nothing back with the ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Formula, allowing you to do some serious overclocking. There are some high-quality components throughout the board, as well as a heatsink block that can hook up to your water-cooling loop.

Choosing the best 5000-series motherboard

A reliable motherboard is one of your PC’s most important components, so you must choose the right one for your budget and needs. The Ryzen 5 5600X isn’t the most capable processor, meaning you can get away with an A520 or B550 motherboard if you can’t quite stretch to cover the cost of an X570 board. Just be sure the motherboard you buy comes with a BIOS version that works with the Ryzen 5000 series.

Our top pick for the Ryzen 5 5600X is the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E, which comes with super-fast LAN ports and PCIe 4.0, thanks to the X570 chipset from AMD. It’s not the most affordable but will easily handle even the most powerful Ryzen 9 processor.

If you want to save a little but still enjoy all the benefits of X570, the ASUS Prime X570-P is a great second choice, coming with PCIe 4.0 support, high-quality components, and a great BIOS at a more affordable price.
