Having an all-white rig is a dream come true for many gamers. White is a unique and strong color and it makes your rig stand out amongst a sea of black RGB circuitry. Gamers who want to build that kind of rig are forced to buy a white motherboard if they want to keep their setup’s look consistent. However, unlike black RGB motherboards, good white motherboards can be hard to find and you might need to make some compromises.
That is why we have decided to create a top-list of the best all-white motherboards for both Intel and AMD sockets. After listing the top four choices for both sockets, we will announce the winner is several distinct categories. Check out our candidates below!

White Motherboards for Intel CPUs with LGA 1151 socket
NZXT N7 Z390
NZXT N7 Z390 boasts a unique design for everyone looking to bring a dash of freshness into their PC setup. It features an LGA 1151 socket that supports the 8th and 9th generation of Intel processors. When it comes to its size, it belongs to the large ATX format. Some of its features include an integrated I/O shield, Bluetooth 5, built-in Wi-Fi, and 2 RGB adapters that you can use to add other colors to your setup.
However, it comes with a few downsides as well. First, its price is quite high when compared to motherboards with similar performance. Its energy efficiency is not one of its fortes and you might be sacrificing some of the performance for a great, all-white design.
MSI H310M GAMING ARCTIC
The MSI H310M GAMING ARCTIC is based on the H310 chipset and is probably the best Intel white motherboard available up to date. It supports 8th and 9th generations of Intel CPUs but the H310 chipset kind of limits what you can do with it. Still, that makes for a great budget motherboard with a unique design and solid performance.
The biggest downside comes from the fact that you won’t be able to overclock your CPU using this motherboard. Also, there are only two RAM slots and the onboard RGB controller only supports red lighting. Still, RGB lights might take away from your all-white build.
Still, its specifications are quite solid for a budget motherboard. You get two PCIe slots, one M.2 slot, four SATA-III ports, two USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, HDMI, DVI-D, and a PS/2 port. It has its pros and cons but its price-to-performance ratio is still great and, when looking at its sleek design, you probably won’t regret buying it for one second.
ASUS Prime Z390-A
The ASUS Prime series is one of the best for new, high-performance 9th generation Intel CPUs. Some of the reasons for that is it’s great overclocking support and easy installation of other components. To be honest, ASUS Prime Z390-A is not an all-white motherboard but it features a black-and-white design. It looks really good but it might throw off all-white enthusiasts.
On the other hand, this is a high-performance motherboard. It features heat skins and an M.2 slot. It has the most important features covered: multi-GPU setup, overclocking, memory capacity (up to 64 GB), and you can even equip it with RGB lighting. So, if you want it to look whiter, simply add some white lights to add to the overall feel. Its biggest downside is that it doesn’t have built-in Wi-Fi. It features a solid price that actually its design and performance.
ASUS Prime Z390-P
If you are looking for a more budget-friendly option than ASUS Prime Z390-A, you should check out this motherboard. It’s fairly priced and it shares a similar design. This time, though, you can see that black and white are evenly participating in its coloring. Once again, it may throw off some users.
ASUS Prime Z390-P features fewer ports than Z390-A but the most important features are there: 4 x SATA ports, two M.2 ports, an RGB header, VRAM and chipset heatsinks, and two PCIe slots. It’s one of the best choices for mid-range users so don’t expect high-quality performance. However, if your main goal is to complete your white rig, look no further than this beauty.
White Motherboards for AMD CPUs with AM4 socket
ASUS Prime X570-Pro
The first AMD white motherboard on our list features the AM4 socket, making it compatible with AMD Ryzen processors. Its most distinctive feature would definitely be its PCIe 4.0 slots that give it a bandwidth boost. Like other ASUS Prime motherboards, it’s not completely white but rather mixed with black stripes and details. All-white parts include VRM and chipset heatsinks.
ASUS Prime X570-Pro is a high-performance motherboard but it’s still reasonably priced for what it has to offer. It supports 3-way AMD CrossfireX and two-way NVIDIA SLI. It also features USB 3.2 Type C ports and supports up to 128 GB of RAM, DDR4 RAM to be precise. RGB is supported so you can make it more colorful (or “whiter”, if that is your thing.) It’s also one of the only white motherboards with the X570 chipset. It’s cooling and overclocking features are off the charts and we have many reasons to believe that you definitely won’t regret purchasing it.
ASUS Prime X570-P
ASUS Prime X570-P is a younger brother of X570-Pro and it’s great for gamers on a tighter budget. It shares a mixed black-and-white design with the rest of the ASUS Prime series and we love that – it simply looks like an amazing formula! For start, what you get is a mid-range motherboard with PCIe Gen 4, two M.2 slots, and several USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports. However, you only get one x16 and one x4 PCIe slot. This may cause some issues for Crossfire.
If you’re not looking for a high-performance graphics card to run with several AMD graphic cards, ASUS Prime X570-P might be the perfect choice. It will complement your white rig with a unique design and it shows great support of even the newest Ryzen CPUs. If you feel like adding some more colors, RGB support is there as well!
ASUS Prime X470-Pro
Using the older X470 chipset, ASUS Prime X470-Pro is still a great mid-range motherboard and you will probably be able to get it for a much lower price. With all-white heatsinks combined with a predominantly black interior, it looks modern and perfect for white rig fanatics.
Under the hood, it doesn’t keep up with the latest trends. It doesn’t offer Gen 4 PCIe but there is an M.2 slot combined with LAN connectivity. It takes cooling very seriously with five-way cooling optimization. There is also a Safe Slot used to protect your motherboard in case you use a heavy GPU. Audio quality is top-notch with 8 channel audio featuring a Realtek S1220 A codec.
Available for a great price, ASUS Prime X470-Pro will satisfy most of its users’ demands. It provides RGB support for further exploitations of its great design.
MSI B450M MORTAR TITANIUM
This motherboard stands out as the only non-Asus white motherboard for AMD CPUs on our list. It’s a part of the MSI Arsenal Gaming collection that vows to offer gamers a lower-cost alternative with an awesome design.
The Titanium model features a classy all-white design with RGB LEDs under the right side of the board for a unique experience. When it comes to size, it’s a Micro-ATX motherboard with one PCIe 3.0 x16, PCIe 2.0 x4m and two PCIe 2.0 x1 slots. It supports 2-way CrossFire multi-GPU setup and DDR4 memory with clock speed up to 3466 MHz and a capacity of up to 64 GB.
There are USB 3.1 ports (Type-A and Type-C), five 3.5 mm audio jacks, and a LAN port. It’s a mid-range motherboard that might have been overlooked by the gaming community it wasn’t for the all-white rig frenzy. When compared to other AMD-compatible motherboards on our list, MSI B450M MORTAR TITANIUM can at least boast about being “whiter” than the competition.
Which White Motherboard You Should Get For Your Build
Here we will choose the best white motherboard in several distinct categories; one for Intel and one for AMD CPUs. Let’s check out how the motherboards rank by various factors that play a role when deciding to purchase one!
