Hello there! My question is, I want to buy a 2600x with a B450 Aorus Pro/Elite motherboard with aorus rgb memory. My questions are:

Can the B450 precision boost? I read that it has locked voltage which "disables" PBO, and could I shove more volts to the aourus RAM for tightening the CL?

If not, my other option is the MSI tomahawk b450, but I don't know if that board is compatible with that memory. I don't plan on overclocking the CPU, I want PBO to take care of it. Thank you for your answer :9

yes, but don't expect much as cheap Gigabyte boards don't overclock memory very well.

Yes, but PBO is stupid and in most cases inferior to just manual overclocking

What would you recommend then? My budget is a bit limited, I can't really afford x470 boards, only the cheap ones (aorus ultra gaming for example). I'd mainly use the pc for gaming with a 1080 Ti.

ditch the 2600X for the 2600, so you get extra money to invest in the motherboard.

 

I hope that's not gaming at 1080p or below, big CPU bottleneck there

I know, but unfortunately, I can't afford a new monitor atm, in a few months I'll be upgrading to either 4K or 1440p. 

 

If I ditch the X and go for the 2600, what motherboard should do the trick? ASUS PRIME X470-PRO? It's nearly 200$ where I live, that's the max I could go for. ( https://www.arukereso.hu/CategorySearch.php?st=X470 ) In my currency it's ~60.000 Ft.

MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon will be my choice. It's better than the X470 Pro
