Hello guys.So i want to upgrade my current CPU(I3 6098P) to a Ryzen 1700 but the problem is i dont know what mobo to buy.I have two options: The first one is to buy Asrock B450M-Pro4 and also buy an SSD or buy the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon without SSD.What do you guys thing? Should i buy the cheaper one with SSD or the more expensive without SSD?If you have any other suggestions let me know.

Get the SSD. The only real benefit of an "X" series chipset for AMD is multi gpu support and occasionally better power delivery. However the 1700 isn't known for amazing OC potential (none of the Ryzen chips are compared to intel) and you will feel way more of a performance bump from adding an SSD to your system.

The 450 and SSD. Not only is X370 not needed, MSI X370 boards are typically bad

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

What worries me is the cooling in the 450..I've heard that the VRM cooling in these mobos are bad.Is is true?

 

Btw i dont have any intentions to OC Ryzen

I'd go for the 450 and ssd as well. Unless there are features in the 370 that you absolutely have to have.

All i need is a VFM mobo that will be able to handle Ryzen 1700 with no problem.

Btw i wont OC the CPU.

It's not really going to get important when you're not OCing, and even then it should handle a 1700 fine.

The X370 on the other hand has no cooling and the shittiest VRMs you can imagine, so it would actually be worse than the 450

Cooling varies from board to board, and the Asrock heatsinks are above average. You can even OC a bit as long as you give the heatsinks good airflow

MSI actually has OK VRMs on socket AM4 ... they used to be bad on socket AM3 (FX series)

 

Yeah, you'll be fine with the B450 board. It has perfectly fine VRM and some heatsink on it to keep the temperatures reasonable.

Nope, only B450 and X470. Their B350 and X370 boards are horrible both electrically and in software.
