Selecting an AMD Based Motherboard

Motherboards are one of the most essential components of any PC build. The motherboard you choose for your computer will determine all of the other components that are compatible with your PC. Everything from your CPU to storage drives and RAM connects to your motherboard. This importance of motherboards is why they are considered the best starting point for almost any computer build. If you ever need help or want to get estimates for your own build, you can use Micro Center's Custom PC Builder tool for this purpose.

Chipsets such as B550 and B450 help to differentiate between the features and uses of various AMD motherboards. Along with the chipset, the socket of the motherboard will confirm which CPU the component supports. B550 based motherboards are the most popular among AMD processors because they are feature rich components at an affordable price. The highlights of B550 motherboards include USB 3.2 ports, multiple high speed PCIe lanes, and the possibility of integrated WiFi 6 capabilities. B450 based motherboards function similarly to B550 and feature the same socket but can be limited to more basic features or lesser peripheral support. Both the B450 and B550 chipsets make for excellent motherboards for gaming. Deciding between the two will be up to you and what other features you wish to have in your final build. Both chipsets will also come in multiple form factors or sizes, making them viable for just about any PC build. ATX motherboards are the most common form factor because they are the largest and easiest to build with, as well as being the most readily available. Smaller motherboard form factors such as microATX or Mini ITX are great for office based machines or any computer that has to fit within a limited space. However, building on a Mini ITX footprint compared to an ATX motherboard can be more challenging for other reasons.

The Gigabyte website shows that there are two versions of this board, and one of the differences is that the newer one has a slot for a Thunderbolt daughterboard. But the part selector on the MC website doesn't specify which version is available. I don't want to just assume it will be the newer one and then be disappointed. Is there a way to be sure? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin April 2020 Hello @MacCruiskeen! Welcome to the Community.  The revision that includes the Thunderbolt header is relatively new and while we may have some, most of our stock right now likely is likely the original version. I would assume that if you were to get one, it would not be the latest revision.  The only way for us to check the revision on those boards would be for a sales associate who's physically at the store to check. If you can private message me your name/contact information and local store, or reach out to us via text or chat, we can get your information to the sales associates at your local store and have them reach out to you to confirm one way or the other.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Would that work with a rgb fan/strip that only has 12V 4 pin that support Aura Sync  or RGB fusion? How would that work???? How would it go in? Do I have to set it up in bios or something? I am switching from ASUS ROG STRIX to GIGABYTE AORUS so ill be new to the AORUS family.   Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin July 2020 You can connect a 4-pin RGB connection to that 5-pin header, you'll just need to make sure you linee up power pin properly (marked with a triangle on the plug). However, the 5-pin connection on this board is not addressable which means you can't control the RGB through that header. Only the 3-pin RGB headers on this board are addressable. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

MSI Gaming Pro B450 or Gigabyte Aorus B450? MD1 ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 in Help Choosing Parts I ordered the Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard from microcenter but the store replaced it with MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON MAX WIFI AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard, UPC code 124057. When I compare the specs online it seems as if the MSI has more memory while the Aorus has way more headers and audio ports.  I know I can return the MSI, but do you think the MSI is as good as or better than the Aorus for gaming? I bought the MasterLiquid ML240L RGB V2 240mm Water Cooling Kit but the specs for the MSI say it doesn't have a water cooler header. Will this be compatible? The MSI specs state it has: 1 x CPU Fan Header 2 x Chassis Fan Connector The Gigabyte Aorus that I wanted to buy has: 1 x CPU Fan Header 1 x Water Pump Header 1 x Front Panel Header 1 x Front Audio Header 1 x TPM Header 1 x S/PDIF-Out Header 1 x Water Cooling Fan Header 2 x System Fan Header 1 x RGB Header Is the MSI worth keeping or will the missing headers be a problem?

I even called and waited on hold for 20 minutes before someone confirming that they it said 1 was in stock. I was told to come back and wait in line before the store opened again tomorrow... 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bjjb99 ✭ December 2020 Same issue. Yesterday I saw a graphics card was listed as "1 in stock" on the website for the Fairfax MC.  Drove 20 minutes there since I couldn't find a phone number on the MC website to call.  When I got there, I was told "yeah, we don't have any, it was out of stock a while ago and there's a waiting list."  Drove back to the office.  An hour later it was still listed as "1 in stock" on the website.  Sad. How difficult is it in this day and age to have up-to-date inventory management that ties in with a company's website? 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook briandanimal ✭ December 2020 Ok, so get this... After having not been able to verify what the truth was about what was in stock, I ended up purchasing my original motherboard & CPU combo elsewhere (paying about $40 more).  I did not see a way to cancel my reservation for this order online so I guess it just expires after 3 days.  Meanwhile, I had placed a different order (different items) for pickup at the same store in Rockville.  So now I technically have two orders submitted.  When I arrived at the store to pickup my second order, they looked it up by name and brought BOTH orders to the counter.  The original order for the motherboard & CPU was in stock and had been there all along.  Ok, so I'm out $40 and they lost that particular sale (everyone looses)...that's cool, I make mistakes too.  So I fulfil the second order, pay for it, they bag the items up, and I leave the store.  I get to my car to check out my new product, and I open one of the boxes and IT'S EMPTY!!!!!  At this point, I'm rightfully angry but I decide to just be cool and go back in and discuss it.  Long story short, they were cool about it and just swapped out the empty box for a full one without issue or argument.  Needless to say, that was a relief.  I should point out that the staff at the internet orders counter were really kind and pleasant. Here's the deal...there's a never ending list of reasons/excuses as to why the inventory online doesn't reflect real-time inventory; I get that.  But when I showed up to the store and walked the floor, I had at least 5 commission hungry sales people ask me if I needed help.  From one lens that might sound like a GOOD thing, but during my brief stay, I saw at least 4 or 5 clumps of sales people in different parts of the store standing together chatting amongst themselves.  PUT THESE PEOPLE BEHIND A PHONE!!!!  Get them in the online chat queue.  Get them organizing the shelves, flipping a sign outside, or organizing the warehouse area....SOMETHING!!!  Sometimes your customers drive a fair distance to give you their money.  Please, do us the courtesy of giving us your attention on the phones or chat...particularly when you've got unproductive staff standing around.  Call your telephone system technician and ask them to change your automated attendant's "business hours" to reflect the holiday hours so the attendant isn't telling the callers that your open until 10pm only to press a button to speak to a customer service representative and be told by the recording that you are closed without putting you through. You knew Black Friday/Cyber Monday, etc. was coming...make a list next time. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook pL86 ✭ December 2020 I'm also frustrated with the inaccurate stock status at stores.  It's not even those items that sell out quickly like GPUs and CPUs - the St. David's store has had at least three Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi motherboards sitting on the floor for the last two weeks and the store stock on the Microcenter website says it's sold out.  It seems to be a cruel joke that the automated voice prompt when you call the store encourages you to check the stock status on the website because "you see what we see." 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 Hello everyone!  Thank you everyone here for posting your thoughts on our stock on our website and how it is reflective of stock in store.  I apologize for all and every inconvenience and issue this has caused.  This post will address the issues you are all having with our stocking and reservation system. Firstly, regarding the 3000 series GPUs as well as other recent hardware releases, they are very low supply and high demand items, some of the biggest discrepancies we have seen between supply and demand in a long while.  We have customers waiting outside of the store everyday before opening for hours for a chance at a possible shipment of GPUs.  Before the store is open and once the stock of the GPU is known, those at the front of the line are sometimes provided a voucher so they no longer need to wait in the line.  We are approaching this as a First Come First Serve while trying to prevent large crowds from forming.  Though most just wait in the car and purchase as soon as we open, some do come back later in the day to get their GPU.  While it may show 1 or 2 in stock online, those are likely claimed by customers that waited and received a voucher.  The best way to find stock for the 3000 series cards and other recent hardware releases would be going to your local store, just keep in mind there are people waiting every day for their chance to get one.   @pL86 That is strange that it is not showing up on our website if there are three on the floor.  I am currently looking at the stock and I do see it listed as out of stock.  I have sent an email to the St. Davids location to see if they can investigate exactly what is happening with it. @briandanimal I apologize for the whole mixup with reservations and missing items and I am glad to see the issue you had was resolved.  In regards to our sales consultants in store only chatting, I do agree that there should be things to do outside of chatting if there are no customers to assist.  Just would like to mention that our stores do not have an Online Chat or Phone Lines physically inside the store.  It is all handled at our headquarters in Columbus, OH.     0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BrianH ✭ December 2020 I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook pL86 ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 TSPhillipT, Thanks for following up about the stock situation at the St. David's store.  I would be interested to know what the store tells you.  BTW, It's not just the Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi mobo  - two Crosshair Formulas have been on the shelf - right next to the Crosshair Heroes - while the Microcenter site has listed them as out of stock.  I can take a pic of all the mobos sitting on the shelf tomorrow as verification.  To be honest, this has been a longstanding problem with the store - I have learned, unfortunately, that the website cannot be trusted when it comes to low volume items and that the only way to be sure is to physically go to the store and ask an associate to look up stock in the internal system. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook briandanimal ✭ December 2020 @TSPhillipT Yeah, there's always reasons why things don't work out the way they should.  The truth is, most reasons don't have anything to do with the customer.  The customer simply goes online, looks for products, selects and pays for one.  At that point, either way you spin it, the customer should be able to trust that the deal is done.  The same is true with every customer facing function of the business.  Your automated attendant when calling in states that if you're calling to check stock on an item, what's listed on the website is the same information an associate has access to.  In other words, don't waste our time on the phones, just look it up yourself on the website and trust it's accuracy.  Except, it's not accurate and your inability to follow through on what you say leaves no reason to trust you. I get it... I'm just someone who's upset and oh well, "you can't satisfy everyone".  Except, clearly I'm not alone.  This thread is full of others who were led to it because of it's title.  A title that at this point seems to resonate with people from coast to coast.  How many others have had similar problems but didn't care to look online and find this discussion.  How many others decided to just not waste their time?  Chances are, far more than who actually took the time.  You have inventory and management problems that appear to be systemic throughout the company. Another thing, yes...you can get your sales people in the stores on the phones.  It's called Voice over IP (VoIP).  Configure 3 or 4 phones to register with the call center's call control server and send them to each store.  During downtime, answering phone calls not only provides your customers with a sense that their business is appreciated, but it provides continuing sales and customer service training to your staff and improves productivity. Hand out vouchers to people in line during door buster days?  Easy!!!  Barcode the vouchers with barcodes corresponding to actual physical items in the store.  Once the vouchers are printed, remove them from your inventory immediately...you know they'll be sold even if the voucher holder doesn't return.  The voucher simply states that the guarantee is only valid until noon.  After that, the item is back up for grabs. At the end of the day, your problems are your problems.  It's your job to iron out those problems so these things don't happen.  Explaining why the problem happened doesn't put the item in my hand.  What we need to hear is that you understand that our concerns are valid and that you can do better than the way things are happening and that your current system is due for a major overhaul.  Anything other than that only deepens the distrust, and apparent incoherence. Bottom line....get it together.  Potential customers are dropping like flies. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook iaisaac ✭ December 2020 BrianH said: I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. Marking the 9th of December,  I was in line as well amongst many customers who have the same reason as you, on the same day and location, and others who are casual shoppers. But I rated this experience as the most unprofessional, unethical, and disappointing visit I had with Mircocenter. To put details into perspective, they lacked the communication skills to directly inform us about the store's late opening as they barricaded the door, in my opinion that was disrespectful. Management was outrageously bias in three instances within this particular day: being told stay in our car before 2 hours before opening and not accounting for newly arrived customers who conveniently formed a line thus kicking us early birds out. Then whoever worked there, walked out laughing with other associates upon opening minutes late within the promised late 10am sign, and yelled out in a rude manner to the customers to "shut up, one at a time!" with those who were complaining and proceeded to retaliate by disregarding the early birds in line to people who had just arrived and let them go first. While some were trying to explain the situation, they showed inconsideration and told us to back off. On the third instance, whoever was in charge did not let anyone in who were looking for a "graphics card." That was it. A graphics card? Knowingly very well on there site they had many other models of graphics card, surely he was referring to the 3000s series without stating the specifics. About loosing loyal customers, I had others waiting next to me who weren't even looking for the new 30s 'graphics cards' but the ones they had in stock like the 5700xt. But she was physically turned away in line to go home because she was wrongly accused about looking for a 'graphics card.' For Microcenter anticipating this situation over and over again, it seems this particular location at Tustin fails to learn from their mistakes. If such a location is going to earn recognition because of demand, surely I expect humane treatment. Just to further escalate my argument, I would think it's their associates job to inform us of stock before wasting our time in line because the Tustin Authorities(police) who went inside were told to inform us customers and came out to tell us they "had no stock." Obviously the authorities had no idea what stock they were referring to, but to blankly state no stock means they should've closed that particular day because of no stock. This is merely bad business practice especially with heightened expectations of those carrying these scarcely demanded computer components. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin December 2020 iaisaac said: BrianH said: I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. Marking the 9th of December,  I was in line as well amongst many customers who have the same reason as you, on the same day and location, and others who are casual shoppers. But I rated this experience as the most unprofessional, unethical, and disappointing visit I had with Mircocenter. To put details into perspective, they lacked the communication skills to directly inform us about the store's late opening as they barricaded the door, in my opinion that was disrespectful. Management was outrageously bias in three instances within this particular day: being told stay in our car before 2 hours before opening and not accounting for newly arrived customers who conveniently formed a line thus kicking us early birds out. Then whoever worked there, walked out laughing with other associates upon opening minutes late within the promised late 10am sign, and yelled out in a rude manner to the customers to "shut up, one at a time!" with those who were complaining and proceeded to retaliate by disregarding the early birds in line to people who had just arrived and let them go first. While some were trying to explain the situation, they showed inconsideration and told us to back off.

Sorry we didn't respond sooner.  I wanted to quickly explain that we take your safety and the safety of our associates very seriously.  On the morning in question there were some threats of violence made and we chose to wait for senior management to arrive and open late to make sure we could safely take care of everyone.  We had no intention of opening later than posted until just before opening and the decision was made.   I can pass your feedback along regarding the management of the lines and who is or is not being let in first or how associates are addressing potential customers so any issues on that front can be addressed.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bun ✭ January 2021 I have never seen a more deceptive scammy company in my life. Employees were rude as Hell. It says clear as day, we have 1 card in stock, must pick up in the store on the website. This is a company that specializes in computers, but yet can not run a website.  This reminds me of the old chinese bait and switch, get peeps in the door, and they will spend. A hour wasted for nothing, website says 1 3060 TI in stock, but NO, just a LIE, a inventory error said the 3rd grader behind the desk at the 9294 Metcalf Avenue Regency Park Shopping Center Overland Park, KS 66212 store. I was going to drop 200 more on a case and power supply, but NEVER again will i set foot in a micro center again. Funny it still shows it as in stock, 2 hours later.

The issue started yesterday when i decided to add in an Inland Premium NVME to it.  Prior to the new addition I was having no issues, everything booted up on the first try and i was very impressed with how great it was running.  Initially after adding the new drive everything was working perfectly as well. I was able to migrate the OS and everything seemed to of been a smooth transition since it booted up from the new Drive and was working perfectly, until I went to turn it off at that point it kept rebooting. After a few attempts it finally it turned off.  I turned it back on to see if everything was ok with it now but it gave me the blue screen "oops...." I went to the bios made sure everything looked fine and it did. I attempted to load up the computer after saving within bios and then it turned off. I attempted to turn the computer back on from here and now I'm just getting the Red VGA light on the mother board and the graphics card fans turn off shortly after stating the computer.  I'm not terribly sure what all I can do from here, can someone please help? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin May 2020 Hello @supermariopunch!  Welcome to the Micro Center Community! So now we are unable to get into the Bios?  Could you try clearing the caps for the system?  You can do this by unplugging the power to the system or toggling the Power Supply Off and then holding down the power button for about 20 seconds.  Then plug it back in and start up the system.  If this does not work, I would then recommend clearing the CMOS by removing the CMOS Battery (Looks like a watch battery) on the motherboard for about 20 seconds and then putting it back in and then starting up the system.   1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook supermariopunch ✭ May 2020 This worked great! looks like my files were corrupted but luckily since its a new PC i didn't have anything of terrible importance. A quick reinstall of windows worked its magic real quick Thank you soooooo much! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook supermariopunch ✭ May 2020 Also to explain yes i was unable to get even into the bios and I had to take out the CMOS battery.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook supermariopunch ✭ May 2020 I went ahead and turned off the PC to make sure everything is working smoothly. after turning it on now i get the boot red light rather than the original VGA.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook supermariopunch ✭ May 2020 TSPhillipT 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin May 2020 With the boot debug LED lit you should be able to POST and get into the BIOS. It's telling you it can enumerate your drives or there's nothing to boot to. Given you've already had OS corruption my thoughts are we're either having an issue with the drive or the system is very unstable. However, if that was the case, I doubt you would of gotten through an OS install without a crash. Do you still have an OS on the WD SSD to test with? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

My build has an AIO, 2 sets(3fans each) of Lian Li Unifans with a hub to connect them... My concern is that this mother won't have enough spots to plug in the fans and AIO as well as matching my 5900x and 3080 to a good mobo. I'm considering the x570 Master by gigabyte/aorus and currenty have the x570 Elite Wifi by gigabyte/aorus. Is there another motherboard I should consider? Will I be okay with just the Elite wifi? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments SMO ✭ November 2020 or even the Asus Tuf Gaming or Msi Mag x570 tomahawk? I don't really plan on overclocking (don't know enough to consider it) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Welcome to the community! Is there a reason that the X570 Elite WiFi doesn't work for you? To me, it looks like a great option. All of the boards you mentioned a great. The specific ports or I/O that you need will be the determining factor for you. Are you connecting multiple M.2 drives? Do you need many USB ports? If the 2 sets of fans run through a fan controller, you should be set with the amount of PWM hubs on these boards. Hope this helps. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS Removed all components (HDDs), tried each DIMM separately, unplugged keyboard, mouse, tried all different permutations and options with components removed to bare nothing to some components.  In all cases, same problem exists as BIOS continues to freeze after seconds.  I pulled CMOS battery overnight; put in back in.  Attempted to upgrade BIOS to F11p from F2 using the Q-Flash utility, but cannot even get to the stage that I can do it fully because it freezes.  Now it won't even boot into BIOS at all as computer freezes instantly.  Fans work, video card, power good, etc.   Just instant BIOS freeze now.  No error/POST/warn red lights on motherboard.   So it's been DEAD since Dec 28.  NEXT STEPS - QUESTION I filed a support ticket with Gigabyte on December 28, but I have not heard a peep from them at all.  Case still pending as 'new'.  I just want to know what my options are.  I live about 1.5 hours away from the Micro Center store.  I am okay making the trek there if I can get a return, replacement or fix for this mobo purchase 2 months ago.  Any suggestions for me?  I paid $169.99 for the mobo. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_EmileC admin January 2021 Hello @AlexPA2.

I literally just bought a brand new Ryzen 5 3600 and a AORUS B450 PRO WIFI motherboard. So i have built the PC today and right off the bat I noticed the amount of noise coming out of the fan. The fan spins spin very fast, then slow again, then fast again, then slow again and so on........ After using tools like NZXT CAM, CPU Z, HWINFO, Speccy.... The idle temp for my Ryzen 5 3600 is between 45-58c (whereas my old ryzen 5 1600 with the same wraith prism cooler have 35-40c idle). Also, the speed of the cpu is always at 4.1 ghz, but the processor's default is suppose to be at 3.6 ghz. Why is that? Im new at Gigabyte Aorus motherboards.  I tried installing AMD chipset drivers and changing power plans, the only one that work is the downclocked to 2.1 ghz (Power saver power plan). All the other options raises temperature and very high Fan RPM. I am using a Wraith Prism RGB cooler, not the one it came with. I tried updating Bios to F51 and does not solve the issue. Could it be the thernmal paste? I used Corsair TM30 Paste. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? I googled it and its not a first time issue for people as well. I have attached a screenshot of how hot and how fast the fan rpm is.  Hopefully someone can help me out, its a brand new build and i didnt get warranty.  Specs: AMD RYZEN 5 3600 CPU GIGABYTE AORUS B450 PRO WIFI Motherboard  (it is labeled "Ryzen 3000 DESKTOP READY" on the box) BIOS: Version F51 AMD Wraith Prism RGB Cooler 16GB DDR4 Trident Z RGB 3200mhz PowerSpec 650W 80 pluz Bronze CPU .jpg 79.2K 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin August 2020 The base clock is 3.6GHz, but it can boost higher as needed, so your clock speeds being up to 4.1+ are pretty normal 45-58C does seem pretty high for idle temperatures. The first thing I'd do is reapply your thermal paste and make sure the CPU cooler is nice and snug. Make sure when you re-do your thermal paste that you clean both the CPU and the bottom of the CPU cooler off. The way I always do it is taking some rubbing alcohol and wetting a cloth with it, then using the cloth to actually clean them.  Fan speeds will fluctuate as your temperatures do, so if we can get the temperatures is order the fan speeds should be more normal.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Mount_Russmore ✭ July 2021 in Store Information and Policy So I am looking through the website and notice that Micro Center is one of the many GREEDY companies raising their prices on graphics cards. Which you do not need to do. If BestBuy can sell a 3060 for $399 still, then Micro Center can lower their prices from $900-$1300 to something a little more reasonable. Hopefully, other people will realize the greed and go elsewhere. I know I will. I had a certain respect for Micro Center that has fizzled away quicker than you can say Nvidia. P.S. Yes I made an account just to post this. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Kozakura ✭✭ July 2021 @Mount_Russmore Which 3060 from Best Buy are you looking at? The EVGA one? EVGA has been the cheapest 3000 series cards as they aren't tarrifed as they ship from Taiwan. Micro Center is also selling the EVGA 3060 for $399 as well; https://www.microcenter.com/product/634181/evga-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3060-xc-gaming-dual-fan-12gb-gddr6-pcie-40-graphics-card Micro Center ROG Strix 3060 for $529.99 and Best Buy's ROG Strix 3060 for $529.99 Micro Center Tuf 3060 for $509.99 and Best Buy's Tuf 3060 for $509.99 Micro Center Gigabyte Gaming Rev 3060 for $459.99 and Best Buy's Gigabyte Gaming Rev 3060 for $459.99 Micro Center Gigabyte AORUS Elite Rev 3060 for $499.99 and Best Buy's Gigabyte AORUS Elite Rev 3060 for $499.99 The only 3060 I found to be a price difference between Micro Center and Best Buy was the MSI Ventus series which both goes in favor of Best Buy at 489.99 vs 504.99 on the dual fan and the triple fan being 499.99 vs 519.99. This is only tied to the MSI brand as well as the same patterns show in the 3070 series cards with matching prices on all other brands but MSI. This doesn't sound like Micro Center is being greedy unless they really wanna upcharge MSI but maybe they are paying more for MSI cards than Best Buy is or Best Buy is taking a hit at MSI cards if they are buying at the same price. I think pricing for cards is insane yes, but using EVGA Pricing vs ASUS/MSI pricing clearly shows how the impacts of Chinese tariffs impacts the cards. EVGA 3080 Tis are 1400 while ASUS and MSI are nearing 2k. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin July 2021 Hi @Mount_Russmore. Thanks for joining and posting on the community. There are several factors that have led to the increase in the price of these GPUs. The foremost of these would be import tariffs, which have affected many electronic imports. However, our buyers continue to do their best to work with board partners to get the best prices for our customers. We do carry a wide range of GPUs, and due to this broad selection, we have a wide range of prices. The majority of these GPUs are sold out due to their high demand. We will continue to do our best to get more as soon as possible! For your best chance at getting a new GPU right now, please check out our Random Selection Process.

This looks like a very solid setup. I would recommend additional storage as 250GB can be quite small, especially when you have games like Modern Warfare and Red Dead Redemption 2 taking up over 100GB each. I would recommend adding a large HDD for your gaming library at the very least, or go with a larger SSD overall. Be mindful that your choice in motherboard may require a BIOS update to work with the 3700X. By now, most of our B450 boards should have their latest BIOS updates for the Ryzen 3000 series, but it would be safe to know ahead of time that there is a rare chance that it may require an update. Also keep in mind that the B450 boards do not support PCIe 4.0, so if you require that feature in the future, you may need to upgrade to an X570 board. Lastly, your 240hz Alienware monitor might support FreeSync.

Hello Michael, so do you recommend me buying the x570 board ? And also will the x570 also require a bios update? Thanks so much for your help. X570 boards do not require a BIOS update and will work natively with AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors. As for a specific board that I would recommend, I am a fan of the Gigabyte Aorus Elite WiFi board: https://www.microcenter.com/product/611269/gigabyte-aorus-elite-wifi-x570-amd-am4-atx-motherboard. This board has a very overkill VRM power delivery that is well cooled and designed with long term durability in mind. It also has a ton of features such as WiFi/Bluetooth, dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots (both of which support NVMe RAID), integrated RGB controller and overclocking if you are in to that sort of thing. It's definitely more expensive than the B450 options, but would definitely last much longer from a feature/design perspective. Keep in mind that if you do want to go with the B450 boards, we offer BIOS update services in-store in the event that you have an issue. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSMichaelB said: joe said: TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, Joe!

As for a specific board that I would recommend, I am a fan of the Gigabyte Aorus Elite WiFi board: https://www.microcenter.com/product/611269/gigabyte-aorus-elite-wifi-x570-amd-am4-atx-motherboard. This board has a very overkill VRM power delivery that is well cooled and designed with long term durability in mind. It also has a ton of features such as WiFi/Bluetooth, dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots (both of which support NVMe RAID), integrated RGB controller and overclocking if you are in to that sort of thing. It's definitely more expensive than the B450 options, but would definitely last much longer from a feature/design perspective. Keep in mind that if you do want to go with the B450 boards, we offer BIOS update services in-store in the event that you have an issue. The x570 is indeed overkill I don't think I will need such a powerful motherboard. what do you think of this board : https://www.microcenter.com/product/510034/asus-b450-f-rog-strix-gaming-amd-am4-atx-motherboard How can I check if I need to update the bios? You also mentioned that micro center can help me update the bios. How much will that cost thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin February 2020 joe said: TSMichaelB said: joe said: TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, Joe! This looks like a very solid setup. I would recommend additional storage as 250GB can be quite small, especially when you have games like Modern Warfare and Red Dead Redemption 2 taking up over 100GB each. I would recommend adding a large HDD for your gaming library at the very least, or go with a larger SSD overall. Be mindful that your choice in motherboard may require a BIOS update to work with the 3700X. By now, most of our B450 boards should have their latest BIOS updates for the Ryzen 3000 series, but it would be safe to know ahead of time that there is a rare chance that it may require an update. Also keep in mind that the B450 boards do not support PCIe 4.0, so if you require that feature in the future, you may need to upgrade to an X570 board.

Most all 400-series boards at this point should have the 3000-series compatible BIOS installed, these will be designated by a label/sticker on the box stating they're "AMD Ryzen 3000 Desktop Ready."

Thanks so much for the help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 The Wraith Prism that comes with the 3700x is a very good stock cooler and can even support some light overclocking if that's something you're interested in. I would only replace it if you plan to upgrade your cooling quite a bit if you do plan to push it on overclocking. Otherwise the Prism should work very well.  The differences between each respective card in a line are very small, typically only a few percent. If it's within your budget there's nothing wrong with having that little bit of extra, but a 2070 Super is still a 2070 Super so that card should perform. The H510 is fine as a budget friendly case, and it looks pretty sleek. It should work well. It's not as well ventilated as some other cases but you'd probably have to bump your price up a bit if you are looking for cases that have a significant improvement in airflow.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSTonyV said: The Wraith Prism that comes with the 3700x is a very good stock cooler and can even support some light overclocking if that's something you're interested in.

The Fractal Design Meshify C would be another solid option if you want be a little more budget friendly. Keep in mind that for both those cases and the H510, you'll need to purchase some extra case fans if you want to fill out all the fan slots. The PC-O11 is probably the one I'd personally recommend, I think it incorporates the best of everything: good space, features, airflow capability and I think it looks pretty cool too. You can even get it in white if that strikes your fancy.  The Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC 3X is probably what I'd jump up to for video cards. It has a similar clock speeds as the other overclocked cards but doesn't quite cost as much some like the EVGA 2070 Super FTW3. Again this is all considering budget. Most of these "improvements" are just nice-to-haves or slight bumps at most, not requirements by any means. If you can save a bit on case/card and put that into a better monitor, for example, that'd probably be a more worthwhile investment. But of course, choose what you like the most! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSTonyV said: The Lian-Li PC-O11 Dynamic is a very popular and highly reviewed case, which a lot of room and features .

What is a good case that comes with fans because i dont want to buy extra fans Hmmm, it looks like I was wrong about that actually, the H510 does include two fans already, one in the back and one on top. Sorry about that!  There are a lot of cases that come with fans already. The H510 and the Meshify C I mentioned earlier both include two. A couple of other options I'd look at that come with fans included already would be the Maingear Vybe case and the Corsair iCue 220T.  If you click this link:  https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294964318+4294820854+4294821211+4294819794+4294821004&myStore=true  that will show you a filtered list of the mid-tower cases we carry that included at least two fans.

A friend of mine told me that evga gpus are not as good as the asus is this true or not thanks  Your friend may just prefer ASUS over EVGA for reasons such as aesthetics or software features. Performance wise, they perform nearly identical. This is because both ASUS and EVGA source their GPU dies directly from Nvidia and adhere to the same design specifications that Nvidia mandates. I personally prefer EVGA due to their very strong warranty policy and great customer service, but at the end of the day, it's best to pick a card that suites your needs both from a performance and aesthetic/features perspective. The Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super you linked will be just as fast as the others, and would be great for 1440P gaming at high refresh rates. Since you are using a 1080P 240hz panel, it will have absolutely no issue pushing those framerates in competitive titles, and will still push extremely high refresh rates in most AAA titles at that resolution. I think you'll be very satisfied with any of the RTX 2070 Super options available on the market today.

Please recommend a suitable AIO cooler for my system and, also, a higher performance air cooler. Thank you, Joe 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin April 2020 When it comes to air coolers, Noctua is the way to go. The NH-U14S and DH-15 and are both fantastic options and are pretty much the best you can get for air coolers. They're pretty tall though so keep that in mind, I'm not sure if that's an issue for the Lian Li 205 case or not. I believe it shouldn't be an issue.  For AIO liquid coolers, there are a lot of good options out there. The NZXT Kraken X53, EVGA CLC 240 and Corsair H100i would all be great options.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JoeH ✭ April 2020 If I choose one of the Noctua air coolers mentioned above, do I need any other parts to replace the air cooler that came with the Ryzen 9? Thank you, Joe 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin April 2020 edited April 2020 No, the coolers will come with all the mounting hardware you need. You can just keep the cooler that comes with the Ryzen as a backup.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JoeH ✭ April 2020 Thank you for your expertise.  I am inclined to go with one of the 2 air coolers you recommended but I have 2 questions. Will the noise from the Noctua coolers be less than the noise from the stock Ryzen cooler?  The Noctua coolers have a noise level of 24.6 dBA, I don't know what the dBA is for the stock cooler. On my Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, will the cooler block the PCIEX16 slot, the one closest to the CPU?  I have my graphics card in the PCIEX4 slot. If cost is not an issue, which one of the 2 coolers do you recommend? Thank you, Joe 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin April 2020 edited April 2020 The AMD stock cooler is rather quiet when idling or at low temps, but will be louder than the Noctua under load. I don't know the exact measurements but if noise is a concern, I'd definitely stick with the Noctua options, they're known for being quiet. The cooler shouldn't block the PCIe slot. The DH-15 is the more powerful cooler, but it's quite a bit larger. I personally would choose the NH-U14S, as it has more than enough cooling for a 3900X (even if you were overclocking) and is friendlier for internal space. You could use the cost saved for something else and not lose any performance.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
