The motherboards you're limited to have the following, mostly due to the CPU:
  • Socket AM4
  • A 400 or 500 series chipset.
    • 400 series chipset boards are likely not compatible out of the box and require an UEFI update, which may require a compatible CPU to do so.
    • 500 series chipset boards may be compatible out of the box, but a lot of them also require a UEFI update.
    • Make sure the letter in the chipset is either B or X.
  • You'll also want to make sure the area above and to the left of the socket (if you're looking at the board head on with the socket towards the top) has a hefty heatsink on it. This is the VRM area which is for power deivery and the 5950X requires a hefty VRM, which also means it requires hefty cooling.
There's really no compatibility issues with the GPU as long as it has a x16 PCIe slot.
