Waiting for B550 motherboards might be a good call

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

Reckon I should get a b550 won’t they be more expensive? Or just wait for the price drop of the b450s?

B550 is guaranteed for 4th gen ryzen, unfortunately AMD announced that B450 is cut off at 3rd gen

I probably won’t upgrade my cpu any further than 4th gen but it’s worth the wait to see how much the b550s will cost

You can't upgrade past 4th gen with AM4 anyway, and you can't upgrade past third gen (probably) with B450

I used to have a similar tier board (Gigabyte B350M DS3H) and it struggled with high OCs on a 2600, 4.1GHz was an instant overheat and 4.0 required direct VRM airflow. I'd recommend something in the B450M Pro4 range if you're looking for a budget overclocker.

 

Mobo shouldn't have any effect on GPU overclocking, so it won't matter much for that.
