linux compatible x570 motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Looking for an x570 mb to use my 3900x cpu and titan Vidio card. Like to have one that's as compatible as you can get pretty much out of the box since I know very little about linux and how to fix stuff in it.

Distro will be Ubuntu studio. So far the Asrock Tiachi seams to be it.Nuvoton super io chip for temps etc.Asus tuf seams to be ok also. Can add to the list MSI Tomahawk.

Widows isn't an option even though it would be a lot simpler. I'm done with MS windows OS FOREVER.

I am going to be honest here.. good luck on drivers for linux with nvidia cards.. Yes they are improving.. 

But why are you running a titan card with Linux? Folding?

The man hate windows :). Actually Linux can do a lot of things and NVIDIA does give out new drivers every few months.

As for compatibility, I never had problem getting Ubuntu to install, though I only used it for server stuff while working at a NBC station, didn't try to play games at all. During install you can choose the option to install all the 3rd party plug-ins along with the OS itself.

Currently I'm without a pc.Going to use Ubuntu for audio recording/production maybe video/animation and 3d modeling etc. I Don't play games at the moment but that could change. Did see some quirky games on steam that perked my interest. Even a game maker one. Pretty much found out all of the MSI mother boards I'd be remotely interested in do use the nuvoton IO chip so that's good. I'd be using the titan because I have one. No sense in buying video card when I have one. Then keeping it in the box it came in.

Ubuntu runs fine on my newish system. Picked up an MSI x570 Unity grabbed some Gskill trident neo 2x16 ram and a Corsair mp600 1 tb nvme.  So far so good. Pretty much everything works. Network, audio, video card mouse keyboard etc. Still need to test out the wifi haven't hooked the antenna up yet. Even made an image in Gimp. The audio sounds better than the last MB. @ir_cow Thx for the tip on 3rd party plugins on install.

Nice setup! Glad it install. Ubuntu with all the plugins is really nice. I just personally don't have much use for it since all the programs I use are windows only.

All the programs I used were windows only also. Gimp is almost identical to what I used so I'm happy with that. Need to get a usb class compliant audio interface to test out the recording part of it.  Reaper works in linux and ardour is already in linux . I'm real happy with the hardware I picked out.

ok i'm not the most knowledgeable person out here but i've never known a mobo to be os specific... i don't believe the mobo cares in the least which os you install.  And today's modern ubuntu has certainly come a long way from where it was 10 years ago...

I agree 100% on where Ubuntu is now vs 10 yrs ago.Way better to use and Way easier to get started on now. Some things dont work easily in  Linux like being able to monitor motherboard ,Cpu and other hardware  temps connected to motherboard . Unless you like to play with the terminal right from the gitgo and possibly find a work around  or app.
