MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk WiFi AM4 AMD Motherboard $219.99 + FS @ Newegg (shipped/sold by NE)

$219.99
+28 Deal Score
5,252 Views
Newegg has the MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk Wifi Mobo [newegg.com] for $219.99 + Free Shipping.

This highly coveted mid-range priced X570 mobo is available again. A good value for those not wanting to drop $300+ on a (highest-)quality X570, and looking for more than budget X570 variants or B550s.

For reference to its popularity and scarcity, this was +70 rating from 2 weeks ago when I last shared it.

If you want to spend a little less for an X570 board, a common alternative to this board is the Asus AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wifi, which can be had for $189.99 at Amazon here [amazon.com] or at Newegg here [newegg.com].

If you want to spend up a little more for a better X570 board, a common alternative is the Asus ROG Strix X570-E (I have this one and love it) for $299.99 at Amazon here [amazon.com] or Newegg here [newegg.com].

Happy deal hunting. Smilie Edit: I really should say, good luck on finding availability - hunting. Covids supply chain issues, man...tough times.

After seeing this deal been posted (and soon expired) for the third or maybe the fourth time, I decided to buy it for my 3700x.

I have been comparing the other ~$200 boards. The TUF Gaming one has no on board usb-c, and supports max DDR4 4400(O.C.), while this one supports DDR4 4600+. Not a big difference but I use it as an indicator of good quality board.

Actually there is another alternative, the tomahawk B550, if you don't need the wifi and bluetooth. Its vrm temperature control is fantastic.

I had both before sending back the TUF. This Tomahawk is better in more than just those notes mentioned:

1) Front USBc
2) Better LAN module
3) MUCH better temps under load (~15°C cooler relative to the TUF)
4) MUCH better VRM phases (better OC stability)
5) Better audio chip

Couple other things as well, these were what I recalled quickly.

This board punches far above its cost. The TUF is great, but I'd get this board every time still.

Just got this board from Amazon, paired with a ryzen 3600. It is probably overkill for my use case (gaming) but considering the price gouging on b550 boards you may as well get this at retail price if you need it now. Having Zen 3 compatibility built in gives it some futureproofing, pre-installed I/o shield was a nice touch too. Built in wifi is great too, I pull ~230 Mbps from my wireless router.

Glad I got this when I popped up on Amazon for the same price. Even though it said it would be delivered in 3 weeks it came in 3 days.

Yes, this board is arguably the best in the $200ish price point. You can get better boards but only if you are willing to go up to the >$300 price point (ASUS Strix-E, Crosshair Hero, Asrock Taichi, MSI MEG Unify/Ace are some examples of better but more expensive boards)

In for a second one. First from a deal last month was DOA. Since it is always out of stock Newegg could only refund me previously.

Bestbuy currently has the b450 tomahawk max in stock. The price isn't slick at $125, but you're lucky if you can find one at all these days.
