X370 chipset or B350?

Which chipset should I go for? I do wish to overclock, and will probably be using the Ryzen 5 1600 CPU. I will not be using dual GPUs.

Side note: if anyone had any suggestions on good boards for either chipset, I'd appreciate it!

  1. The only advantage of X370 is dual GPU's..... Save your money and get a MSI B350 Tomahawk MOBO and you wont be disappointed.

  2. Well, not exactly. Usually X370 boards have better VRMs, more powerful and reliable.
    For example, if you take a Taichi X370 and a B350 Tomahawk on a high end Ryzen CPU, you will probably get limited overclock on the MSI since the VRMs will be holding you back.

    What the difference between the ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS and MSI B350 TOMAHAWK. Do they both do the same job at overclocking?

    Basically Yes they do. The X370 isn't worth spending the extra money on though. Get the G350 Tomahawk!
