Motherboard for Ryzen 5600x

Recommended Posts

Told my son I'd build him a rig for Christmas and with Covid and supply chains being a bit slow I finally grabbed a Ryzen 5 5600X for him. He's coming from a slower Ryzen FX Processor that scores around 5000 on the CPU bench mark, which does ok with his 1660TI GPU.


This really isn't unraid specific, but I'm trying to pair it with a decent, but affordable Motherboard that supports the AM4 Processor. Currently I do not have anything in the house that uses the AM4 socket so I would have to either hope and pray its Bios will support the 5600X out of the box or I'll have to pickup a cheap AM4 processor or figure out a way to flash it. 


Does anybody have any recommendations that would work with this in a Gaming environment? Sure it could be applied to unraid just the same, but to be honest this machine probably wont see unraid for a few years if at all.
