yes, AMD says that updates for Zen3 CPus will cut off previous support, but currently a B450 motherboard that can support Zen 2 can also support Zen + and Zen CPUs.

Putting parts list together for a friend (currently have a 3600 myself) and they're gonna get a first gen CPU, and upgrade later. If i suggest a b450 motherboard that has out of the box support for Ryzen 3000, will it still support 1000 and 2000 cpus, or is it like the 5000 update that's removing older CPU support/

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.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed 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 moded 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
