  1. Looks like the B450's wont be compatible with the next gen CPUs, only the B550 and X570s. Right now you have X570 such as X570P and the X570 Gaming K4 for just 30$ more. Well worth the difference.
  2. I think the B450 MAX is not worth it anymore when you have motherboards like X570 Pro4 for 30 more... which insures future compatibility.
  3. That looks a good build, but I would go with the MSI Mech, known to have very poor thermals.

  4. I agree, I also would say the SDD would go with Crucial or Samsung for reliability and performance.
  5. That would be my vote, was actually going to say the same thing.
  6. My B450 Steel Legend didn't had any issues handling a 3900X, the VRMs temps were fine. I later moved to a X570 because I wanted the better memory compatibility that the chipset offers.
  7. For sure. But there's cheaper and good X570's like the X570 Phantom Gaming that might be worth looking. The MSI MAX is too close in price to a X570 to be worth cosidering..
  8. My thinking as well! can't think why people would pay close to 120$ for a Max when you can get a X570 Pro4 for close to 140$...

    5700 xt?

    That 5700 XT at 379$ is a steal! I dont even know how nvidia still sells their 2060 S..
  10. Another thing the X570 have better memory handling. I dont think you save that much these days if you buy a quality B450, the X570 Pro4 is at 140$....
  11. If you get such fast mem, I would certainly get a X570 as it has better memory compatibilty.

  12. All depends on the features. I wouldn't spend 120$ for a high end B450 for sure, but there's the X570 Gaming K4 around 140$ is makes no sense to buy the B450...
  13. Yes, stock will be fine for sure. The 9900K already offers plenty of performance, you dont need to overclock. Besides if you want to overclock you do need a bad ass air cooler or even water cooling.
  14. The Extreme 4 is a good motherboard, should be fine as long as the case have decent airflow.
  15. Even if they still not considerably better, just the fact that the X570 chipset alone has better compatibility, memory speeds and possibly more future proof is more worth while. Unless there's something on the B450 connectivity that I really need that I couldn't find on the X570.
