    Decision time. Which b450m to go for?

    Asrock b450m steel legend.
    MSI b450m mortar max
    ASUS b450m TUF Pro gaming

    And why. Don't say wait for B550 please.

    The Asrock B450M Pro 4 has better VRM's than the Steel Legend afaik.

    The Mortar would be my choice if you can find one in stock, followed by the Pro 4.

    I did some research on this and the Mortar seems to be far and away the best option

    MSI Mortar all day long, its very well known to have the best VRM's out of all of the B450 boards and also the MAX version has a 32mb bios whereas all others have a 16mb, this was the reason for the release of the max edition of boards in the first place.

    Just had a look at the Mortar B550 WiFi, looks like a very nice board, i'll wait for some reviews, hopefully they didnt skimp on VRMs
