Best Motherboards for AMD Ryzen 7 3800X in 2022

Don't overlook the motherboard. It's what handles communications between your processor, RAM, GPU, and all other connected hardware. It's incredibly important and is used to connect everything together. Spending a little more on your motherboard allows you to do more with all other components. 

To help you make the right decision with the AMD Ryzen 3800X, we've rounded up the best motherboards.

Whichever motherboard you decide to go with from our collection, your AMD Ryzen 7 3800X will be a happy chappy. You'll be able to get the most out of the processor with something like the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E with stable overclocking capabilities and some of the newer features from AMD's platform like PCIe 4.0.

The newer X570 chipset is a substantial upgrade from AMD for Ryzen 3000 series processors. There are numerous options available, including our top pick, but our secondary recommendation goes to the MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS, rocking PCIe 4.0 support, high-quality components, and great BIOS. It's a solid entry point for newer boards.

Luckily, the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X isn't the world's most powerful processor and as such, you won't be required to spend a small fortune on a motherboard to really push it hard.
