For some reason both of those manufacturers have no idea how to layout info for their compatible motherboards for that processor.
ASUS has options to filter results, but the website doesn't filter the results like it should. Regardless of browser being used.

Ryzen 9 are both 3000 and 5000 series CPUs.
X570/B550 is the primary chipset boards for these CPU series.
Other than that, X470/B450 chipsets are only for 3000series at the moment as they will be BIOS updated next year for 5000series.
Some X370s can host a 3000series but those are too old now for them to be considered.

For what CPU are you interested in?
Your best choise would be X570 or B550 chipset, depending on your needs for features and peripheral component conectivity.

I'd recommend the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F. Excellent board for the money.

Does anyone make a motherboard for this yet? I'm guessing by your response, no, only older versions
yes. X570 motherboards and b550 support that cpu. Get a board with bios flashback capabilities and you won't have any issues.

I'd recommend the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F. Excellent board for the money.

That board costs almost 200, about as much as a solid X570 (yes Tomahawk possibly). Please don't give bad advice.

Stick with something else, MSI preferably as Asus is overpriced and Gigabyte has some boot loop issues.

Bad advice? I'm recommending based on experience. I use this board, it's fantastic, and it might be just what the OP is looking for. I didn't say "Go buy this board and nothing else".

Sure, if they want, they can stick with Major Scalping Industries or Gigayikes, that's their choice.

This board was the exact same price as my B550 Aorus Pro and it outperforms it by a TON.

I have good experience with my $3000 guitar, therefore I suggest it.

So you heard MSI is involved in scalping, good. What about other brands? You're fooling yourself big time if you think Asus is a white knight.

My point stands, you're suggesting him a B550 board that costs as much as a better X570 board. Now unless you have something to say about this, please keep it to yourself.

The keeping to yourself wasn't directed at that, you don't get it. You're posting opiniated facts (such as Gigabyte being a yuck) and you're telling these as if they're always correct. The board you suggested has less fan ports, less PCI-E lanes, no Bluetooth... I can go on. It's a worse board, it's worse for the money and worse over all. To re-iterate, you're supposed to reply to this. Not to other things. The original post asks for boards, and the board you suggested is inferior in most ways to what I suggested.

Not sure what you mean, but they perform the same. Maybe one can overclock ram more??? Otherwise... they're the same performance wise.....as are most motherboards on the AMD side. You won't notice the negligible differences.

Anyway, the F is a solid board... if i didn't want or need (I don't, most dont) the additional lanes x570 has, its a viable option. That said, the tomahawk a very good, better on paper, x570 option at $200. I wouldnt call suggesting b550 board 'bad advice but there are several good options at that price point. I surely like the look of the asus F over the tomahawk. Since for 99% of users, even here, either board will accomplish the same goals, its mkre than just on spec details that go into it.

Also, Gigayikes and Major Scalping Industries? I thought you had to be 13 to sign up here? :p

@X71200 - B550 F WiFi has BT. ;)

Thank You For the responses.
I want a good mother board, I can spend more than $200
I bought this processor just now

Whats the best board for that processor.
FYI... I like ASUS

I like this one:

I'm trying to pick out the right Ram for the board.
All of the RAM I see has Case latency options to pick from.
What would be the correct Latency option for that motherboard?

The board itself is not bad, but the price is. $225 is a lot, you could as well get an X570 Unify at that rate which would be overkilling it quite a bit. 3950X and B550 is also a bit eh. The VRMs on B550s are often times even better than a lot of X570, but if you want to run two M.2 SSDs, you get less PCI-E lanes there.

CAS latency is timings, there is no "correct" of it. Some may "look wrong", like industrial grade RAM where performance doesn't matter, but in reality anything could go. For your setup though, I'd obviously suggest better RAM - because you'd lose performance with horrid timing RAM.

Grab some Ballistix Elite 4000 if you want 16gb, those are the best you're going to get for $100.

That'd cost quite a bit, those are more performance oriented sticks meant for mostly in dual usage. You'd be locked to 32 there anyway, each stick is 8gb on the ones I was on about.

Do you require 64? I mean, 32 is plenty for that CPU.

As @X71200 said low latency do play role but it’s not everything. If you have the money you can go with 3600MHz CL16–16-16-34/36 but that would be really pricy for a 64GB kit. Alternatively a CL16-18-18-36/38 is also nice. Depending the chips on the kit you could tight timings your self.
Just make sure anything you choose is on the motherboard QVL list first.
G.Skill, Crusial, TeamGroup are some brands to choose, but for Corsair you must choose a Z type kit.

If you don’t want to mess with DRAM settings for timings avoid kits with odd numbers like CL16-19-19-38, CL15-17-17-36 and so... Ryzens don’t like odds.

3200MHz is the official supported speed but if you choose the right kit you could run a 3600MHz speed by just enabling XMP/DOCP or even at 3800MHz with manual settings.

————

For a motherboard as we said, X570 and B550 is your best choices. But for you to decide 1 of the 2 you must first decide what short of devices you want to connect on them.
If you want just a GPU + 1 NVMe drive + 1-2 SATA drives a B550 is all you want. But if you want more than that, as additional PCI-E cards/controllers, more than 1 NVMe and 2-3 SATA devices, then you must go for X570 chipset to take advantage of the full speeds of all connected devices.
If you clear this out first, then you can choose which specific board is for your needs about usb, rear I/O configuration etc..

What ever you choose, “a must included” is the famous Flash button. You can escape a lot of headaches having this.

You clearly shouldn't have rushed into this.
Spend another day or so reading up, as you're making rash decisions here.
3200MHz is the AMD guaranteed highest speed, but 99.99% of Ryzen 3000 and 5000 CPUs will do 3600MHz, some will do 3800MHz and some 5000 parts will do 4000MHz.
Not at 64GB though, so 3200MHz isn't a bad call, if you go with CAS14, otherwise aim for 3600MHz CAS16.

They do but like, it isn't a life changer as long as you get RAM with good latency. Like, CL16 to CL17 isn't a lot of difference and you could tweak those a bit anyway.

This looks nice: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7Z...x-32-gb-ddr4-3600-cl16-memory-bl2k32g36c16u4b

Check compatibility though, 64gb kits are not too common.
CL17 doesn't work with Ryzen 3000.
That's what my modules are and I can't boot if I set them to CL17.

When you set a timing, a whole lot of other bunch of subtimings are set accordingly by the board itself unless you know enough to set each of them by yourself. The reason the chips sometimes perform worse is those timings going for the worse or just making you impossible to boot. This is probably the truth behind you not being able to boot at CL17. There's certainly no set rule saying "Ryzen never works with CL17". That's just a poor assumption.

"Doesn't work" does not necessarily mean "Doesn't boot".
Odd CLs, and timings in general, does tend to make Ryzen systems unstable. Especially when trying to tighten them. Thats why GearDownMode helps so much with Ryzen stability. When enabled, it turns odds to next (up) even.

My RAM is stocked to CL17, I always ran it at lower but I'm pretty sure it can run at CL17 all day. Odd timings after the first row, too. Please don't spread nonsense information.

So far I only bought the processor, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-Core 3.5 GHz Socket AM4. I am building my computer around the chip.
so please suggest a good motherboard with a PCI Express 4.0 x16 for the Video card.
I would like onboard video for backup, but it's not required.
As far as the memory goes, I was just looking for what the motherboard specs said would would work with the one I was looking at.
I want a Asus, all the experience I had with asus makes me like them more than others. Bios reset button, cmos reset button (on some)

Please advise away

There's no onboard video on the 3950X, so that can't happen. There are a bunch of Asus options to pick from, but you should inform us whether you need B550 or X570. Simply, B550 for one M.2 SSD, X570 for 2.
