These are the best motherboards to use with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
Our top pick for best motherboard for the Ryzen 5 5600X is the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E, which comes with super-fast LAN ports and PCIe 4.0, thanks to the X570 chipset from AMD. It's not the most affordable but will easily handle even the most powerful Ryzen 9 processor

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 Review
99 launch price and current street prices for the Ryzen 5 5600X. Its performance is good enough, but it fails to achieve a noticeable advantage over the many competing CPUs in this price range.
