X670 motherboards are similar to X670E motherboards, but the major difference is that X670 motherboards do not support PCIe Gen5 across the board. You either get support for Gen5 storage or graphics card, not both. While both chipsets have the same 44 PCIe lanes, X670 has up to 4 PCIe Gen5 lanes while X670E has up to 20. Here are some of the best X670 motherboards you can buy for AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs.

The rest of the features are pretty much identical. Both chipsets support overclocking for the memory and CPU. They also support USB 10Gbps and 20Gbps. X670 motherboards are ideal for people that do not need a full complement of PCIe 5.0 lanes but want to take advantage of NVMe Gen 5 SSDs.
Best X670 Motherboards
The following are some of the best X670 motherboards that we can recommend for the AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs:
- GIGABYTE X670 AORUS Elite AX
- ASUS Prime X670-P
- MSI PRO X670-P WiFi
GIGABYTE X670 AORUS Elite AX
Size: ATX | Socket: AM5 | RAM Support: DDR5 5200 MHz | Power Design: 12+2+2 | M.2 Slots: 4
The AORUS Elite AX has a stealthy design and should blend in with the rest of your components. It has a clean look and comes with plenty of expansion options. The motherboard is a decent pick with a mid-range price tag. It has an integrated I/O shield for easy installation and 4 M.2 slots for high-speed storage, which come with their heatsinks, so you do not need to get one separately.
The top PCIe slot is reinforced for better graphics card support, and the motherboard has plenty of armor and cooling for the VRMs and chipset. You will need dual 8-pin power connectors to provide power to the CPU, and you should get decent overclocks on your CPU with the proper cooling. Other features include USB 3.2 Gen2X2 Type-C, WiFi 6E, 2.5GbE LAN, Q-Flash Plus, and M.2 EZ-Latch.
ASUS Prime X670-P
Size: ATX | Socket: AM5 | RAM Support: DDR5 5600+ MHz | Power Design: 12+2 | M.2 Slots: 3
The ASUS Prime X670-P is a relatively budget-friendly option for people looking to upgrade to the AMD Ryzen 7000 series but not willing to spend much money on a motherboard. Since this is a reasonably priced option, there is no integrated I/O shield or over-the-top armor. But there is decent cooling for the VRMs.
The motherboard does have three M.2 slots with heatsinks, and the top PCIe slot is reinforced for better graphics card support. The motherboard does not have integrated WiFi either, so you will need to use ethernet or get a WiFi card. Other features include USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C, USB4 header, and 2.5Gb Ethernet.
MSI PRO X670-P WiFi
Size: ATX | Socket: AM5 | RAM Support: DDR5 5600+ MHz | M.2 Slots: 3
The MSI PRO X670-P WiFi is another great mid-range option worth considering. It comes with decent armor and cooling for the chipset and VRMs. It does not come with an integrated I/O shield, but it does have WiFi 6E. The motherboard comes in black and should blend well with the rest of your parts and be great for non-RGB builds.
There are three M.2 slots on the motherboard for high-speed storage, and two of the PCIe slots on the motherboard are reinforced. You will need dual 8-pin power connectors to provide power to the CPU, and you should get decent overclocks on your CPU with the right cooling.
