It's an ASUS B450 board. I wouldn't worry about it. As long as there's some airflow from the front of the case going over the motherboard it'll be fine.

Just being from a certain brand doesn't mean its good or bad, especially with a part that consumes that much power. That motherboard is rated at tier E in the tier list

I'd recommend a C tier board for a 3800X.

As long as OP isn't overclocking nothing will happen. People are running Zen 3 on A320 just for kicks and no-one's had their houses burn down yet.

It's fine. Your board is fine. If it couldn't run that CPU it wouldn't be verified by the manufacturer.

The chipset doesn't determine the quality of the VRMs, the quality of the VRMs determines the quality of the VRMs. A high end A320 board can have better VRMs than a bad B450 board. And most of the time they aren't putting Ryzen 7s in a A320 board for extended periods of time.

My point was merely that OP's board isn't some no-name poor-quality mystery board. For his usecase, assuming some basic airflow and no overclocking, average VRMs are fine---not ideal, sure, but fine.

In the tier that it is in on the VRM list, it maxes out a 3600 for power delivery. If the 3600 is maxed out the 3800X is definitely power throttled.

So will should it be a good idea to atleast play on the pc until i get a new one. I will buy a new one next month, or im running a risk of breaking ?
