The Ryzen 5950X is the Zen 3 flagship CPU from AMD. It costs a pretty penny but it also gives a lot. 16 cores with multithreading, single-core boost clock of 4.9GHz (that can go even higher), massive IPC improvement over the previous generation of Ryzen CPUs, all that at 105W TDP.

Performance-wise the 5950X is both a gaming and productivity beast. It’s the fastest CPU for gaming and productivity you can get at the moment. Its bested by Threadripper processors when it comes to heavy multithreaded workloads but it also comes at almost half the price of the Threadripper 3960X, the most affordable HEDT CPU from AMD.

While it tops most gaming benchmarks, the 5950X is a clear overkill if all you plan to do is game. If you need just a gaming CPU, get the 5900X or the 5600X if you want to save cash. Both of these CPUs are better gaming choices. Now, if you need a CPU for work, the 5950X is the best processor you can buy that’s officially not labeled as HEDT.

As for the OC performance, the 5950X has a solid OC potential but the CPU can run slower in games when overclocked because the all-core OC frequencies are lower than the single-core boost frequency resulting in lower single-core performance, the one that matters the most in games. This can be mitigated by getting the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero, which allows users to perform all-core overclock while keeping high single-core boost clocks.

If cash is an issue the 5900X is also a pretty solid choice. It sells for about 30 percent less and can be cooled with a solid mid-range air cooler. If all you need is a multithread powerhouse don’t forget about the Ryzen 9 3950X, which still is the penultimate choice when it comes to doing some serious work.

Excellent Zen 3 power optimization allows the 5950X to use about 10 percent less power at stock clocks than its predecessor, the 3950X. That said, the CPU still demands a motherboard with a quality VRM setup. Further, most people who plan on buying the 5950X probably don’t need a board with limited features. Also, if you’re in the market for the 5950X you probably aren’t on a tight motherboard budget.

This is why we focused on higher-quality B550 and X570 motherboards when picking the best boards for the 5950X. While you will definitely find a couple of budget choices, the list is mostly populated by mid-range and high-end boards coming with a bunch of ports, high-quality audio, multiple connectivity options, and great overclocking features.

The B550 chipset comes with a few limitations when compared to the X570. You’re limited by 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes provided by the CPU which translates into only one PCIe 4.0×4 M.2 slot. Further, most B550 boards come with fewer USB ports than an average mid-range X570 board but on the flip side, most mid-range and high-end B550 boards have faster LAN ports (2.5Gb vs 1Gb found on most X570 boards).

The B550 price ceiling is also much lower than the X570. This is why we’ve included three B550 boards today, each from a different price range. The first is the MSI B550-A Pro, made for anyone who wants a cheap but quality board to pair with their 5950X. The board will run cool if you keep the CPU at stock clocks and its rear I/O comes with a surprising number of ports. The only downside is that the audio is based on barebones hardware that’s way below what high-end models come with.

The board’s VRM is good enough for the 3950X so we don’t have a doubt the 5950X will run just fine, as long as you don’t overclock it. The board supports up to 4400Mhz DDR4 memory, comes with six SATA III ports, and two M.2 slots. You have two PCIe x16 slots here (x16, x4) and two PCIe x1 slots. When it comes to connectivity you’re limited to a single 1Gb LAN port. As we’ve said, the audio section is basic, powered by the Realtek ALC892 audio codec. Finally, the rear I/O is excellent for a board like this and it includes two USB 3.2 gen2 ports (one USB-C), two USB 3.2 gen1 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, and even a BIOS flash button. You also get debug LEDs, which is a very nice thing to have on a budget board like this.

Now, the B550-A Pro comes with a range of limitations, the biggest ones being the lack of any built-in Wi-Fi chip and the poor audio quality. If you want a great mid-range B550 board that can run the 5950X without issues but that also comes with high-quality audio and excellent connectivity options check out the ROG Strix B550-F Gaming from ASUS.

The base specs are pretty similar to the B550-A Pro, with the B550-F Gaming having three PCIe x1 slots instead of two and that’s about it. But when it comes to connectivity you have a 2.5Gb LAN instead of 1Gb along with a Wi-Fi 6 chip that also includes Bluetooth 5.1 connection. Pretty much all that’s needed for a great majority of users.

The S1220A audio codec tweaked by ASUS is responsible for excellent audio quality and on the back I/O you have four USB 3.2 gen1 ports instead of two on the B550-A Pro, along with the BIOS flash button. The B550-F Gaming also includes debug LEDs. This board’s also quite attractive, with an all-black design complemented by a touch of red and an RGB ROG logo. If you don’t plan on overclocking and don’t need more than one PCIe M.2 slot, the B550-F Gaming is an excellent board for the 5950X.

Now, if you want the prettiest B550 board that’s also one of the best AM4 motherboards for media creators and professionals, get the Gigabyte B550 Vision DWhite heatsinks combined with dark grey PCB and black M.2 heatsinks make for a beautiful view inside the case. Vision D is equipped with a high-quality VRM that can run 5950X without issues, both at stock clocks and overclocked. The memory support goes as high as DDR4 5200 and the board comes with four SATA III ports.

Realtek ALC1220-VB codec is responsible for delivering pretty good audio quality and aside from Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 support, the B550 Vision D comes with two gigabit (1Gb) LAN ports. Other differences, when compared to the B550-F Gaming and the B550-A Pro, are found on the rear I/O where you can spot two USB-C 3.2 gen2 ports with Thunderbolt support. The BIOS flash button is located on the PCB, above the POST code. The board also includes debug LEDs.

As for the B550 alternatives, the market has a lot of excellent boards. You have the ASRock B550 Steel LegendMSI B550 TomahawkASUS TUF Gaming B550-Plus, and the Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AC as pretty good choices in the mid-range segment. More expensive B550 alternatives include the ASRock B550 Extreme4 or TaichiMSI B550 Gaming Carbon, or the ASUS ROG Strix B550-A Gaming.

The budget X570 market is made of boards that can cause issues when paired with the 5950X, mostly because of poorly done VRM sections. The cheapest X570 board we’d pick is the good old ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus but the board doesn’t have a BIOS flash button, it can get quite warm when paired with an overclocked 3950X, and its Wi-Fi version doesn’t support Wi-Fi 6. If you don’t mind these downsides, feel free and get one. That one or the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, another solid board, also available with Wi-Fi, which comes with the BIOS Flash button located on the PCB.

Now, the best budget X570 board you can get right now is the MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk. It has the best VRM in the class, it has Wi-Fi 6 and a BIOS flash button on the rear I/O, and it looks rather attractive. Other specs include support for DDR4 4600 memory, six SATA III ports, and two M.2 slots. The X570 Tomahawk includes two PCIe x16 slots (x16, x4) and it also comes with two PCIe x1 slots. Excellent expansion coverage.

The audio quality is the real issue with this board since it comes with the Realtek ALC1200 codec, not as good as we would expect at this price point. The rear I/O is pretty solid. Aside from the aforementioned BIOS flash button the board also hosts a 2.5Gb LAN port, four USB 3.2 gen2 ports (one of them is USB-C), two USB 3.2 gen1 ports, and two USB 2.0 ports. And on the PCB, you can find a selection of debug LEDs.

The main downside of the X570 Tomahawk is that it’s near impossible to find one at or near MSRP. If you can snag one at its regular price, get it. If not, you can get either the TUF Gaming X570-Plus or the X570 Aorus Elite or go one step above and get the MSI MEG X570 Unify. At the moment the Unify is priced very similarly to the X570 Tomahawk while offering much better specs. The VRM is pretty similar but on the Unify you get three M.2 slots instead of two. A great improvement even though the board has only four SATA III ports. You also have three PCIe x16 slots instead of two.

Next, the X570 Unify is a board made for overclocking and the cheapest X570 board that can net you amazing OC results. It also includes lots of OC-friendly features. You have debug LEDs, POST code, and power and reset buttons mounted on the PCB. The rear I/O hosts Clear CMOS and BIOS flash buttons along with six USB 3.2 gen2 (one is USB-C) and two USB 2.0 ports. The Unifi is also great when it comes to connectivity. It packs a 2.5Gb LAN, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5. The audio quality, powered by the Realtek ALC1220 codec is solid but this isn’t the board for audio purists.

Overall, the Unify is a great pick for the 5950X. You have fast ethernet and Wi-Fi, lots of fast PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, pretty solid rear I/O, and a ton of overclocking features. Another excellent mid-range X570 board that has it (almost) all is the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. It’s about 15-20 percent more expensive than the Unify with the main advantage of the Master being its slick design with lots of RGB. This board is a better choice for those who need RGB.

Other differences between the Aorus Master and the X570 Unify include one PCIe x1 slot instead of two as well as six SATA III ports instead of two on the Gigabyte model. The X570 Aorus Master also comes with a dual gigabit LAN (1Gb+2.5Gb), while the VRM is pretty much the same on the two. The X570 Aorus Master is great for overclocking and includes the usual selection of OC-friendly features such as the POST code and the power button on the PCB, and Clear CMOS and BIOS flash buttons on the rear I/O.

When it comes to the high-end X570 boards the best board you can get right now is the Crosshair VIII Dark Hero from ASUS. It’s an overclocking beast and, as we’ve already explained, the only board at the moment that allows new Ryzen CPUs to switch between the all-core OC and high single-thread performance thanks to a feature called dynamic OC switcher. Since the main focus of this board is to OC the hell out of your CPU, it comes with the best VRM in the class and every OC-friendly feature you can think of. But this board is also the best choice for those who need a ton of ports and other features for their 5950X build.

You have support for DDR4 4800, eight SATA III ports, and three M.2 slots. There’s also three PCIe x16 slots (x16, x8, x4) as well as a single PCIe x1 slot, rarely seen on a high-end motherboard. Connectivity options are excellent and include dual gigabit (1Gb+2.5Gb) LAN, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1. The audio section provides superb audio quality thanks to the heavily tweaked ASUS audio codec assisted by ESS ES9023P DAC. The rear I/O is probably the best we’ve seen on an X570 board. Here you have eight USB 3.2 gen2 ports and four USB 3.2 gen1 ports, more than most people will ever need.

Now, the only negative we can say about the Dark Hero is the lack of a 10Gb LAN connection. If you need that, check out the MSI MEG X570 Godlike. The board doesn’t have an equivalent to the dynamic OC switcher (it could receive this feature in a BIOS update) but it does come with an extension card that features a 10Gb LAN port. Also, if you somehow need more than three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, the X570 Godlike comes with another add-on card, packing two additional M.2 slots, for five slots in total.

On the flipside, the MSI board comes with only six USB ports on the back. They’re all 3.2 gen2 with one being USB-C. Five USB-A Ports on a flagship board is too few and this could be a serious issue for some users. Everything else is pretty similar on the two boards, aside from the fact that you get six SATA III ports instead of eight on the Dark Hero. Both boards have a ton of RGB with the X570 Godlike featuring a small LCD screen on the PCB instead of the POST code and debug LEDs.

The X570 mATX market is nonexistent if you plan on getting the Ryzen 9 5950X since the ASRock X570M Pro4 has too poor of a VRM setup to run the CPU without starting to thermal throttle it. You have a couple of solid B550 choices but the thing is, if you plan on getting a flagship CPU it’s probably better to get a full-sized ATX or an E-ATX board and get more features and more ports.

Looking solely at VRM the MSI B550M Mortar is the best choice. It could probably handle an overclocked 5950X and for the price, this is an excellent mATX board. You have support for DDR4 4400, six SATA III ports, and two M.2 slots. The board has two PCIe x16 slots (x16, x4) and two PCIe x1 slots.

The audio section is okay but not great, powered by the Realtek ALC1200 codec. Connection options are great. You have 2.5Gb LAN and there’s also a Wi-Fi version of the board that comes with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. The rear I/O hosts two USB 3.2 gen2 ports (one is USB-C), two USB 3.2 ge1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports as well as the BIOS flash button. The board also includes debug LEDs on the PCB.

As for the ASUS TUF Gaming B550M-Plus, this is another great mATX board for the price that has lower quality VRM. It can run the 5950X at stock without issues but OCing the CPU probably isn’t a great idea. Other than the weaker VRM and different design, the TUF Gaming B550M-Plus is almost the same as the B550M mortar. You have four SATA III ports instead of six, there’s no internal header for the front USB-C port, and there are four USB 3.2 gen1 ports on the rear I/O instead of two and that’s about it. As for the Wi-Fi version of the TUF Gaming B550M-Plus, it comes with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.

Last but not least we have the best Mini-ITX boards for the Ryzen 9 5950X. While basically every B550 mini-ITX board aside from the ASRock B550-ITX/ac can run the 5950 without issues (they’re fine when paired with the 3950X) the Gigabyte B550I Aorus Pro doesn’t have the front panel USB-C header while the ASUS ROG Strix B550-I runs the 5950X at frequencies lower than stock. The issue with the ROG Strix B550-I can most likely be resolved with a BIOS update but still, this is a serious problem.

This is why our vote goes to the MSI B550I Gaming Edge WiFi. It packs a front USB-C header and it looks like it doesn’t have issues with the 5950X. It also includes pretty solid specs. Support for up to DDR4 4600, four SATA III, and two M/2 slots. A single PCIe x16 slot is the norm here and when it comes to the audio the solid Realtek ALC1200 codec is at the helm.

Connection options include a 2.5Gb LAN along with Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1. Finally, the rear I/O features two USB 3.2 gen2 ports (one of those is USB-C), two USB 3.2 gen1 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and a BIOS flash button. Overall, this is an excellent board to build around and a great base for an SFF build based around the 5950X.

If you want to pack an X570 board into your mini-ITX case the ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming is by far the best choice. Now, there’s the thing with the board running the 5950X at lower than stock clocks but this looks like a BIOS issue. If the problem gets fixed, this is the overall best Mini-ITX board to get for the 5950X. Other boards, such as the Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro or the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming either have less than ideal VRM or various QA issues.

Specs-wise, you have support for DDR 4800 memory. Then, you have the usual selection of one PCIe x16 slot, four SATA III ports, and two M.2 slots. The board has 1Gb LAN instead of 2.5Gb seen on the B550 boards but at least it does have full Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 connectivity. As for the audio quality, it’s pretty good, with the Realtek S1220 A at the helm. On the rear I/O, you’ll find four USB 3.2 gen2 (one is USB-C) and four USB 3.2 gen1 ports, the best selection of USB ports we’ve seen on an AM4 mini-ITX board. There’s no BIOS flash button on the rear I/O, which is another massive downside on top of the clock issues but at least you get debug LEDs on the PCB.
