Ryzen motherboards with RGB support

DDR4 support, overclock support and I'd like cheapest-expensive best motherboards. Not interested in a thread ripper, just a R5 compatible. I heard a lot of GPUs aren't compatible with those chips, is an R9 390 8gb compatible?

wat. Wherever you heard it from, leave from there and never go back in, unless you read about PCI devices (not to confuse with PCI-E) and AGP. Literally any B350 after bios update or B450 is what you're looking for, except it has RGB.

It was JaysTwoCents on youtube. He was testing two motherboards, one with Ryzen and the other I think was Intel to compare. One of the GPU's he was using wasn't working with the Ryzen card but it worked on the Intel, that's why I say this.

Don't get your hopes too high with all this RGB craze because as far as I am concerned the Software (Aura and the rest Motherboard Software) is a mess....the more lights you add the bigger the mess...

So buy based on hardware spec and see RGB as an experiment through the motherboard.

Agreed, Aura is horrible. When I had it running it bogged down my whole system. Even web pages would load slower. Haven't had an issue since I uninstalled it.

Unless you have a stand alone controller that will handle all the RGB without software running, its not worth it.

I don't remember seeing that JayzTwoCents video, but that's a highly unusual situation. Almost all video cards should work in any motherboard.

What's your price range?

Currently, I don't exactly know my price range. I just got a new job and I will see how bills are and such alongside the new income. I wasn't expecting to pay like $70-80 on anything, but it seems a lot of those mobos are around that range. Also not really looking for a micro mobo. Not sure it's really necessary to upgrade, but I'm not entirely happy with my build due to a few reasons. Ryzen came out 1-2 years after I put this one together, I thought I was getting an 8 core with the fx when in reality, it's 4 cores. The RAM I got is extremely slow (comparatively) and I didn't know what I was doing at the time so... The motherboard was simply compatible with my pieces. It's not a terrible mobo, but I've read quite a few issues and I guess since you're saying that the programs with RGB aren't that great, I suppose that's one thing to cross off the board. It's also incapable of a really good overclock due to the restrictions it has and the cooling issues. I should probably just completely start a new build and just sell this one. I can probably get $600-700 for it and likely build a better computer for around the same price. Reason I say that price point is because my GPU is around $510 now and I paid like $340 a few years ago for it.
