Any second gen ryzen processor will work with any B450 motherboard

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 G2 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 threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It should be fine. It's a Ryzen board and Max means it's 3000+ ready. The non-max version would require a bios update but will run a 2600 out of the box.

Yeah but will the 2600 be able to reach full potential or will it be limited in some way

I know if should work but I don't know how limited it may be mainly due to it only having a 4 pin for CPU power

🤣

The board will run a 3600.. Your 2600 won't reach that high. I'd be more worried about your Video card throttling your performance more than your mobo. That or your ram.

It's fine to over think. If you're worried about power just check the specs. The AM4 uses less w than AM3. Your new one will be 65w TDR and go up to about 90w with out of the box boosting.

The weak VRM of that motherboard will lead to some power throttling when in demanding CPU tasks. Not sure what your budget is or what country you're in so I can't really make a good recommendation.

It's a Tier C rating, just barely sure, so it should handle a 2600 just fine. Depending on how much airflow his tower has.

I think you think that I have the b450 pro max I actually have the b450m pro max which I believe may be an f tier
