B450 motherboards that are guaranteed to work with third gen ryzen are all MSI motherboards with MAX in the name. The ASRock B450M/AC is also guaranteed compatible. Otherwise, all X570 motherboards are guaranteed compatible.

 

What kind of budget did you have for the CPU, mobo, and ram?


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

That gives you quite a lot of room. Do you plan on upgrading past an 8 core for non-gaming workloads? If not:

All of those things will go quote smoothly on a 3700X, no need for 12 or 16 cores.
