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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

In which case, all good. $69 is a really good price for a 970 Evo.

Definitely, basically the best value for your dollar.

No difference at all between the 3600 and 3600x?

 

would the Tomahawk be able to plug and play a 4000 series when they come out or do we not know yet?

There are differences but it isn't worth the price increase.

No, it would need a BIOS update like it happened when the Ryzen 3000 CPUs launched.

Not a meaningful difference

No, the BIOS of any B450 board out now is not able to accept 4000 series processors, since they're not on the market. When they're released, there will be a BIOS update to accept them.
