Is my motherboard good enough for these components?

Hi, I am building my first PC and think I have made a wrong decision. I bought an ASROCK b560m pro4 to use along with an RTX 3060 and i9 10900K. Is this mother not good enough for this cpu and gpu? Or should it be okay? Please let me know, thanks.

I assume this isn't used for gaming? If it is then this is a very unbalanced system.

 

Here's a video where they tested this board with an 11900K. Not exactly the same CPU, but the motherboard performance should be similar for a 10900K. It crashed with unlocked PL, with locked it's fine.

 

If possible I'd return the motherboard and also the CPU and go for a decent B660 with a 12700F.

I understand, thank you for explaining.

 

I have made the decision to refund the motherboard but I might also refund the CPU as well. Is the 10900K good for gaming?
 

 If it is, then I won’t have to refund it. Do you have any recommendations for motherboards to go with a 10900K and an RTX 3060?

I would rather get a 12600K or 12400, MSI PRO B660M-A, 3060Ti or 3070.

I am building this PC for gaming. I was thinking of getting an 11700K instead and was wondering if you have any recommendations for a motherboard to go along with it so I don’t make the same mistake. I am still pairing this with an RTX 3060. Please let me know, thank you.

 

 

I would go 12th gen instead of 11th gen. A 12th gen i5 would beat an 11th gen i7 for example.

 

Assuming you live in the US something like this should work. If you want you could also get the i7-12700F. Or you could save money by getting an i5-12400F, as that's still more than enough for gaming. Make sure to upgrade to W11 if you choose the 12700F or 12600KF, as the P and E cores don't work well on 10. The B660M Bazooka is a great motherboard. Just avoid ASRock as their recent boards (500 and 600) have bad VRM.
