What's considered the best/smallest mini-itx mb and case combo for the Ryzen5 2400G? No discrete vc will be used. I want this to be as transportable as possible.

The Biostar X370 newegg link says that it's out of stock and may not be restocked. So, I'm not sure that's a helpful suggestion.

Hi Thomas,
There seems to be mistake on the pricing of the Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming or the $80 price tag is for another motherboard.

1. The above comment is correct. I only WISH the Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming mobo was available for $80!!! That link actually goes to Amazon's listing for the previous board: ASRock H370M PRO4 .
2. Why no other boards priced under $200? And why only 6 Intel mainstream LGA-1151 boards? There's a ton of them out there and there have to be more than 6 that are good to use.

Best X299... For Gaming. Ok. Now, when will there be a serious article for such high end motherboards that actually aren't made for gaming but rather content creation, engineering, etc.?

I agree with Frederic Jeanbart. I use my old Gigabyte MA770-UD3 based unit for work not wasting time. How about some info on work and mainstream mobos?

Your data on the MSI XPower Gameing AC is incorrect.
The board has 2 x Intel GBe LAN ports, not one.
There are 3 motherboard mounted M.2 Slots. The firsts two come from the chipset, not the CPU. The third is from the CPU. The M.2 expander card anables you to connect another two M.2 drives via a PCIe slot to the CPU lanes.

Asus used to dominate these comparisons but they barely have any representation for Intel and they've completely dropped off the face of the Earth in the X299 category.

I am with Jungstar...I don't see any B350 or B450 mATX boards. (I got the title, 'Toms Best Motherboards for 2019 by Socket and Chipset.' You need to add: '...and by form factor.' Thanks, anyway.

Thanks for the update but 2 out of 4 AMD boards are not ATX size, interesting. Hopefully both these small boards have full size ATX variants.

I own the Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming (with Ryzen 5 2600 and 16 GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB 3200) and I am very happy with it.
It has every feature I needed and I got it for a Great price ($90).
The MSI B450 Gaming PRO Carbon AC was the other MB I considered when putting this build together, it rated very well in quite a few reviews.

Hi Tomshardware editors and readers, I would very much appreciate some guidance on how to improve my new system. I am currently looking at the motherboard options for Ryzen 3700x vs i7-9700k. My current system is totally built off your recommendations in 2014 and has been working wonderfully, thank you all so much! I recently upgraded my gtx 970 to a 2070 super, and now my 4 core i-5 4690K OC to 4.4 Ghz is causing some stuttering and slowdowns in Far Cry 5 and AC Odyssey. I'm deciding between Ryzen 3700x and an i-7 9700k, and the cost of the ram, motherboard, and cooler may help sway me in one direction or another.
