What's the difference between the Asus B450 MOBOs?

Between these:  

B450M-K

B450M-A

B450M-PLUS

B450 (non M)

Different board features, like SATA amount and USB amount. Power delivery seems relatively similar on all 

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Would the reasons you wouldn't recommend them matter to an average consumer? I just want something that works and is cheap, I don't have that many options :/

because there are cheaper and better alternatives. all of these have no vrm heatsink and are imo overpriced for what they can deliver. what would be your budget and what ryzen chip do you want to use?

The chipset doesn't really matter for me but AM4 mATX / ATX MOBOS seem to be very limited in stores near me :( Im only worrying about having enough USB ports for my peripherals, SATA ports and PCIE lanes but I have 0 idea about any of this

 

These (ignore the orange border ones) and these (up to that 415shekel MOBO) are my only options

from those I would rather get the aorus board. that one at least has a vrm heatsink at looks like a way better quality board

I have the Gigabyte B450M-DS3H in use with a Ryzen 5 2600. With the stock Ryzen cooler, I got this to 3.7ghz all cores. With an aftermarket cooler and better thermal paste, I got this to 4ghz all cores. Happy with the board. Note the one on the website states it is Micro ATX, which mine is not. The only Micro ATX boards on the Gigabyte website are Aorus ones. So not sure whats going on there. The Micro ATX ones often will cut out a few extra ports and often have only two DIMM slots instead of four.
