I need I bit of motherboard help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I’m looking for a good motherboard for the Ryzen 3600. I was looking at the Newegg Black Friday deals and they had the Asrock b450 steel legend for $70. I was wondering if this would be good for over clocking or should I just go for something with bios flashback like the b450 tomohawk? Thanks

If you buy the steel legend and it needs an update, message AMD customer support to get a boot kit (or see if a friend will lend you a CPU.)

 

The steel legend is a great deal for only $70


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Thank you. Would I not message Asrock to see if they could just update bios for me? I’ve never heard of a boot kit.

Asrock doesn't sell the board to you directly so if anything you'd ask the retailer.

you should get the B450 tomahawk because that's what I use in my battle station and there have been no problems so far, but I run a AMD Ryzen 7 2700x gold edition.But still a good chose to go for.
