What's wrong with A320?

Bad VRM (power section - high temperatures)

And what about my H110m? I've seen a lot of negative comments about it and it was still of the best selling budget MOBOs in Poland. Same with few A320 models. A lot of people are using them without problems.

And also B450 is at least a bit "future proof" , it will be good enough if you will want to upgrade the cpu further. Maybe I was too "aggressive" because A320 will be enough for the 2600, but it's not good if you wanna upgrade the CPU later

If I will go now with ryzen then next upgrade will be in like 3 years. In that time money shouldn't be a problem. But first I need to graduate :D

Then I think you will be good with 2600 and A320 board, it will last a pretty long time because it's 6/12
