Best Motherboard
Mobos are the body of the PC and allow data to flow around the various hardware components. We all how hectic it can get when splicing together the parts of your rig, so this award will go to those motherboards that provide excellent build quality, using premium components, while also offering an array of component placement options to accommodate our varied build needs. We are not looking for motherboards that have necessarily been released during the last year mind but ones that are available during this last year.
MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon
If you’re dropping the cash on a seriously top-end gaming-focused processor such as the Core i9-9900K, the MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon is a comparative bargain at $200. This motherboard from MSI is great value and has excellent potential for CPU overclocking, aided by its quality voltage regulation.
Gigabyte X399 Aorus Xtreme
The ultimate choice for those looking to pick up an AMD Threadripper motherboard, the Gigabyte X399 Aorus Xtreme costs a few bob but it’s to be expected when you’re also looking to pair it with a top-tier 12-core+ CPU. There’s no doubt this is an impressive beast though, integrating a new 10-phase VRM design and allowing users to get the very best out of their Threadripper CPUs.
