Dear Community,

What motherboard is better (VRM, features, cooling, stability):


1) Asus TUF B450-PRO GAMING - in my country 479 PLN

2) Gigabyte B550M DS3H - in my country 449 PLN

3) Gigabyte B550M Aorus Pro - in my country 569 PLN

Another option is Gigabyte B450M DS3H or ASUS B450M-A and these are the cheapest - 319 PLN and 329 PLN but my shop don't have Gigabyte B450M DS3H in stock now. I heard that B450M-A have weak VRM.


I want to buy Ryzen 3 3100. My previous PC had budget motherboard Asus PRIME P5KPL-AM-SE and I was happy. I like high quality sound but if my previous PC with budget motherboard was OK so I should buy better motherboard? For Ryzen 3 3100 what is the best choice? Maybe in the future I will change CPU to Ryzen 4xxx - 6 or 8 core but I said maybe.

P.S. I have also question to BIOS fimware. I know that Asus have good BIOS from AMI. I don't know anything about Gigabyte bios. They also use AMI firmware? Can you tell me?
