The Z490 Aqua motherboard from ASRock is a limited-edition motherboard that sports only 999 units. This is the case both with the X570 and Z490 versions. The Z490 board includes all bells and whistles you can expect from a cutting-edge motherboard but its price is eyewatering.

Design-wise, this motherboard is an epic win for white motherboard fans. It’s almost completely shrouded in a white/silver armor that covers everything except RAM DIMMs and edges of the board. The white armor includes a huge OLED screen along with a custom water-cooling cover for the CPU. The board looks striking and is the best white Z490 motherboard you can find right now.

The specs are impressive. VRM unit can run any LGA 1200 CPU without issues, the board comes with dual gigabit LAN (2.5Gb+10Gb), it supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, it includes eight SATA III ports and three M.2 slots, and it comes with three PCIe x16 slots. The rear panel hosts eight USB 3.2 ports along with two USB 3.2 Thunderbolt ports. Overall, this is an impressive board but the limited availability makes it incredibly expensive and very hard to find.

This mobo duo from ASUS sits in the middle of the mid-range Z490 offering and thus is the best choice for the majority of users. The Prime Z490-A is the cheaper of the bunch, with a price that’s about fifteen percent lower than of the ROG Strix Z490-A Gaming. Both boards feature lots of white details, with chipset covers, M.2 and VRM heatsinks, along with rear panel armors being completely white.

When it comes to specs, these two boards are pretty solid. First of all, they both share the same VRM design (12+2 phases) so you shouldn’t worry about VRM when picking between the two. Both are capable of running any LGA 1200 CPU without breaking a sweat. They both offer support for fast, 4800MHz DDR4 memory and they both come with two M.2 slots (both have heatsinks) and six SATA III ports.

Both boards come with three PCIe x16 slots. The ROG Strix Z490-A supports only Crossfire while the Prime Z490-A supports both Crossfire and SLI. You also get one PCIe x1 on the ROG Strix model and three PCIe x1 slots on the Prime Z490-A board. Both boards come with 2.5Gb LAN along with a dedicated M.2 slot where users can install a Wi-Fi card.

Rear panels are richly populated on both models. The Prime Z490-A features six USB 3.2 ports, the same as the ROG Strix Z490-A board. Finally, the Realtek S1220A audio Codec powers audio sections on both models with the ROG Strix board featuring more capacitors that provide clearer sound output. Also, it’s worth noting that only the ROG Strix model comes with the BIOS Flashback button on the rear panel.

Gigabyte released two Vision motherboards for Intel and AMD platforms that both look striking. The Z490 model features a white and silver design with a couple of violet details on the sides. VRM and M.2 heatsinks are silvery-white while the rear panel armor, chipset heatsink, and metal shroud that covers the audio section are more white than silver. Anyway, together, they create one hell of an attractive board. And thanks to its price that’s lower than both ASUS boards this is an excellent choice for those who want the looks without paying the premium.

Specs-wise, the Z490 Vision G isn’t bad. It has a solid VRM capable of running any 10th gen CPU from Intel. It has support for fast, 5000MHz DDR4 memory along with two M.2 slots (both have heatsinks) and six SATA III ports. You get 2.5Gb LAN along with three PCIe x16 slots that support both Crossfire and SLI. Realtek ALC1220-VB Codec is powering the audio section. The rear panel hosts eight USB 3.2 ports one of which is USB-C. Overall, this is a pretty good mid-range board that packs enough specs to be the first choice for many users looking for a white Z490 motherboard.

There aren’t a lot of mATX Z490 boards and the ASRock Z490M Pro4 is the best mATX board that’s also white. White and silver details are on the chipset and VRM heatsinks along on the single M.2 heatsink. The PCB also has lots of white details, which are intertwined with black color. Overall, the board looks pretty nice but it would probably look even better with some huge and white rear panel armor.

When it comes to specs, the board’s solid. Its VRM (10 CPU phases) is weaker compared to the ASUS ROG Strix Z490-G (12 CPU phases), which is the best Z490 mATX board. We wouldn’t recommend running something like the 10900K with MCE turned on or overclocking this CPU since the ATX cousin of this board suffered thermal throttle or flat out failed to load Windows when paired with the 10900K. The best pairing for this board would probably be the 10600K, maybe 10700K but watch out for thermals in that case.

This board has poor specs, in line with its affordable price. You get support for 4500MHz DDR4, one M.2 slot, and one M.2 slot dedicated for a Wi-Fi Chip and four SATA III ports. The board has two PCIe x16 slots, two PCIe x1 slots, and support for Crossfire. The rear panel hosts six USB 3.2 ports one of which is USB-C. Realtek ALC 1200 codec is powering the audio section and on the back, you get 1Gb LAN port. Solid, but there are much better choices out there. But those aren’t white.

Best White Mini-ITX Z490 Motherboard

Now, this is more silver than a white board but it’s the best Z490 Mini-ITX you can get with white details. It looks nice and it should work with the Core i5-10600K. The board’s VRM is pretty weak (6+2 phase design) so that’s the most powerful K series CPU we would use with this board.

The ASRock Z490M-ITX/ac packs lots of specs considering its Mini-ITX form factor. It packs two M.2 slots, both placed on the front and both having a heatsink. You get support for 4400MHz DDR4 memory along with four SATA III ports.

The board includes Wi-Fi 5 wireless chip along with Bluetooth 4.2. Not the best wireless connection combo but it’s solid considering the price. The good thing is that the Wi-Fi chip is placed inside a dedicated M.2 slot on the rear of the board which means you can replace it with one that supports Wi-Fi 6 is you want.

The rear panel hosts a single 2.5Gb LAN port in addition to six USB 3.2 and two USB 2.0 ports. Finally, the Realtek ALC1200 Audio Codec is powering the audio section. Overall, this is a solid board but it’s not made for anything stronger than the 10600K. You have been warned.

Best White B460 Motherboard

If you want to get a white motherboard and pair it with a non-K LGA 1200 CPU, get the B460 Steel Legend from ASRock. It’s the best white motherboard powered by the B460 chipset. The design is classic Steel Legend which means silver heatsinks and lots of RGB details. It all looks rather nice.

This mid-range B460 board has good enough VRM (9+1 phase) to run any non-K 10th gen CPU so you don’t have to worry about temps and thermal stability. When it comes to other specs, other than the limited memory support (up to 2933 DDR4) this board is pretty solid for a B460 model. Just remember that only i7 and i9 CPUs can work with 2933 DDR4 memory. If you have an Core i3 or i5 CPU, the max memory speed is 2666MHz.

The board includes six SATA III and two M.2 slots, which is nice to see on a B460 board. You also get a single M.2 slot dedicated to a Wi-Fi chip so you can get wireless connectivity if you need it. Two PCIe x16 slots support Crossfire and you also get two PCIe x1 slots. The rear panel includes one 2.5Gb LAN port along with four USB 3.2 ports one of which is USB-C and two USB 2.0 ports. The audio section is powered by the Realtek ALC 1200 codec. Overall, this is a nice B460 board. It’s a bit expensive (for a B460 model) but offers a lot and has a nice silvery and white design.

Best AM4 White Motherboards

AM4 chipsets we’ve included in this piece are B450, B550, and X570. We have a couple of ATX models as well as one mATX and one Mini-ITX white motherboard. Something for everyone.

The X570 Aqua is another limited edition, pricier than a whole rig motherboard that flaunts superb design. Lots of heatsinks and a full PCB shielding along with custom water-cooling CPU cover look amazing, but they can’t be yours. The board was made in only 999 units and by now you won’t find one. But it still is the best white motherboard you can get for your Ryzen CPU so we simply had to include it in this list.

If you want to get a white motherboard based on the X570 chipset the Prime X570-Pro from ASUS is the best pick. You have lots of white details along with subtle RGB effects under the chipset heatsink and rear panel shroud and they pair beautifully with the white and dark grey PCB. This is definitely a highly attractive white board.

When it comes to specs the Asus Prime X570-Pro is no slouch. The VRM section (12+2 phases) is good enough to run overclocked Ryzen 9 3950X. The memory support goes up to DDR4 4400MHz which should be fast enough for almost any user. The board includes six SATA III ports along with two M.2 slots, with just one slot having a heatsink.

Two PCIe x16 slots support PCIe 4.0 while the third one is a PCIe 3.0 slot that works at x4 mode. You also get three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots. The board supports both SLI and Crossfire. LAN port is capped at 1Gb and the board doesn’t include wireless connectivity. The rear panel includes eight USB 3.2 ports in total, which is pretty nice. Finally, you have the Realtek S1220A codec powering the audio section.

Again, Gigabyte and its Vision motherboard take the award for the best-looking white motherboard, this time for Ryzen CPUs. The Vision D is a triumph of industrial design with its pure white heatsinks and shrouds along with very clean PCB design. The only negative is the fact that both M.2 heatsinks are dark grey instead of blinding white.

But the Vision D isn’t just a pretty looking board, it also has solid specs. First of all the VRM is excellent. You can freely pair this board up with any Ryzen CPU. Next, the board has support for DDR4 5000MHz ECC memory, which should be interesting for professionals who use their PC 24/7. Storage-wise, you get two M.2 slots one of which is PCIe 4.0 along with four SATA III connectors. There are three PCIe x16 slots in total running at x16, x8, and x4 mode, respectively. The board supports AMD Crossfire.

The Gigabyte B550 VISION D includes a Wi-Fi 6 connectivity along with Bluetooth 5. You also get dual gigabit LAN (1Gb+1Gb) but we would prefer to see a single 2.5Gb LAN port. Rear Panel hosts six USB 3.2 ports along with two USB-C ports. Overall, this is an excellent B550 motherboard that also includes the best design out of all B550 boards.

If you need a less pricey alternative, check out the B550 Steel Legend from ASRock. It isn’t as pretty as the Vision D but it costs less, sports a solid design, has a nice feature set and has VRM good enough for any Ryzen CPU.

The B550M Steel Legend features the classic Steel Legend design that includes lots of white details combined with lots of RBG effects. The result is a highly attractive board that also has solid specs for the price. The VRM looks like an 8+2 phase combination. It isn’t great but it should run both the 3900X and the 3950X at stock clocks. Now, temperatures would probably be pretty high, so make sure to have active cooling aimed at VRM in case you plan on running one of the two flagship Ryzen processors.

Next, the board has support for up to 4733MHz DDR4 and it hosts one M.2 slot along with one M.2 slot dedicated for a Wi-Fi card. There are also six SATA III ports on the board. As for the PCIe ports, you get two PCIe x16 slots along with one PCIe x1 slot without support for multi GPU technology. The rear panel hosts six USB 3.2 ports along with the 2.5Gb LAN port. Finally, the audio section revolves around the Realtek ALC1200 audio codec.

There are a couple of alternatives out there for those who don’t want to pay extra. The B550M Pro 4 is another mATX board by ASRock with lots of white details. It’s cheaper than the B550M Steel Legend and it shouldn’t host the 3900X or the 3950X without providing a direct airflow to the VRM unit. Next, we have the MSI B450m Mortar Titanium, which is an all-white motherboard that’s really hard to find at the moment.

When it comes to the AM4 Mini-ITX boards, there isn’t a lot of choice for those in need of a white motherboard. Your best bet is the Gigabyte B450 I Aorus Pro WiFi, which isn’t white but silver but oh well. It isn’t like you can choose.

Anyway, the board’s pretty solid looking but it doesn’t offer lots of extra features. First of all, the VRM unit is average at best (4+2 phase design) and the most powerful CPU to pair with this board should be the 3700X. Put something more powerful and you’ll probably get a free heater in your room since the VRM will melt.

The board includes one M.2 connector, four SATA III ports, and support for up to 3600MHz DDR4 memory. You get a single PCIe x16 port without support for Crossfire or SLI. The Realtek ALC1220-VB codec is powering the audio section and the rear panel hosts a single 1Gb LAN port. On the back, you can also find six USB 3.1 ports. The Wireless connectivity supports Wi-Fi 5 but the wireless chip also includes Bluetooth 5 connectivity. Overall, this is a solid Mini-ITX board that will pair nicely with any Mini-ITX case. Just remember to not equip it with anything more powerful than the Ryzen 7 3700X.
