MSI B350 Tomahawk

It features a really attractive design, a nice basic feature set, strong overclocking capabilities, and a price tag that should give everyone looking at X370 motherboards a moment of pause. Last, but not least, it even has a twin - the B350 Tomahawk Artic - which has a white PCB, white colour scheme, and white LEDs, and it even retails for the same price.

For a user on a budget that wants at least some frills with a Ryzen 3, 5 or 7 processor, the B350 Tomahawk ticks most of the boxes and with a base styling, ample connections, and some ports. For around $95 at Amazon.com, the Tomahawk hits near the mark based on the features and with consistent performance to back it up, and this could be a good $100 option on the entirety of the AM4 chipset.
