It's important to consider the best motherboards for your PC builds, especially when going with a more compact PC. Depending on your budget, available size support, and which CPU you plan on choosing, there's a good selection of boards out there. Here's a collection of our favorite motherboards for the Lian Li O11D Mini.

ASUS PRIME Z590M-PLUS (opens in new tab)

Best budget Intel

A good Z590 motherboard doesn't have to cost more than half your PC budget, which is where the ASUS PRIME Z590M-PLUS comes into play. Coming in below $200, this board comes with an 8+1 power phase design, high-quality components, Fan Xpert 4 for a quiet and cool PC, as well as all the rear USB ports you'll need.

Choosing the best motherboard

The Lian Li O11D Mini is not only a gorgeous PC case, but it can also take on full-size ATX motherboards. Usually, with more compact PC cases, you'll need to use only ITX motherboards, but that's not the case here, allowing for most motherboards to be considered for a PC build.

Our top picks for AMD and Intel processors go to the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming and ASUS ROG Strix Z590-E Gaming, respectively. These are largely the same board from ASUS but with an AMD or Intel chipset, as well as a few other minor differences. Both motherboards are excellent choices for a PC build.

You can go with a more affordable motherboard and still have an excellent time without stability issues, so long as you don't go overboard with overclocking. The ASUS TUF Gaming B550-PLUS and ASUS PRIME Z590M-PLUS are great choices for those on a tighter budget.
