Can the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus handle 3900x?

Hi, as mentioned in the subject, I have an MSI x570 gaming plus board. I'm planning to upgrade to a 3900x later this year. I'm wondering if it will be able to handle the 3900x of should I just replace my motherboard?

The board has a 6+2 phase vrm solution with a beefy heatsink it should handle the 3900x 

But do you need x570 ? 

I mean do you need the plx chip for sli or do you need dmi 4?

It should work, but at stock speeds. Definitely don't try any sort of overclocking with the 3900X on that board.

Looking at the tier list, it won't be able to handle it at full speed. You'd be better of getting the cheaper, B450 tomahawk that is a tier C and can handle a 3900X at full speed at 1.25V. I also left the tier list below so you can take a look at it and get a better idea.

Thanks for the input. I wasn't actually planning on the x570 however the sellers here always bundle the 3rd gen with an x570 otherwise I'm paying a lot more for the processor. :(

Oh if your getting a good deal then that's not a problem 

It's just I thought you were optionally going with an x570 board 

Then your all good but just like what @Mateyyy said the board isn't the best so don't expect to be able to oc with a 12 core 

I think it has a 3 stage 6+2 phase power design so it's not bad but certainly will be at it's limit with a 3900x

Thanks for sending this list, this gives me a much better idea of which boards perform well, wish I saw this earlier on.  I don't do much overclocking anyway as I'm not really confident doing so.
