Need Help Selecting An AM4 Motherboard

I am planning to build a new ryzen computer in about a week, but I am having trouble choosing a motherboard to go with my 1600X. I am hoping to try and overclock, but saying that this already at 4ghz boost, i probably won't do much of it.

These were some of the boards I was looking at as of now, but i don't know which is better.

which would be better? is there anything better below $150? Thx for any help :)

Edit: I forgot about this board

  1. You may check out the MSI tomahawk boards also. Those seem popular in the b350 line.

    I had looked at the tomahawk series motherboards, but I had already ruled them out because the asus rog strix b350 was better.
  3. Got it. Then the big question is if you will want to use sli or crossfire. If not, and if you aren't planning to overclock much, then roll with a b350 board. That said, the ryzen 2000 series is supposed to come out in April sometime.

    1600x and B-350F here, can run 4ghz @1.375 Ram support is still a bit hit or miss. I`m currently using G Skill Trident
    RGB ( pretty lights OOOHHHHHHHHHH) lol 3000 16-18-18
    games and streams nice, runs cool with a 212 and 3 case fans.
  5. For the 1600 you dont need to get a X370, a decent B350 will do.

  6. OK thanks :) Ill go with the 350 over the 370 since I don't plan to use sli or crossfire.
