Question 2600x vs 2700?

Yes the B450 aorus m will work fine with both the 2600x and 2700.

2700 has 8 cores and 16 threads with a max 1 core turbo of 4.1ghz, although the max all core turbo is slighy lower.
2600x has 6 cores and 12 threads with a max 1 core turbo to 4.2ghz but again the max all core turbo is slightly lower.

Realistically in most games and work tasks the 2700x 8 cores will more then make up for the slightly higher turbo of the 2600x, so the 2700 has superior performance.

The 2700 has a much weaker cooler than the 2700x and theoretically turbos 200mhz lower than the 2700x, but the 2700 is still generally higher performqnce than a 2600x.

The 2600x is also great for gaming and productivity, but if you can streatch to a 2700, i would buy the 2700.

Actually, the 2700x has a max 1 core boost of 4.3ghz and the 2600x has 4.2.

If you have the choice, go with the 2700X, but if you will be overclocking, you won't be using the stock cooler anyway.

Yes, the 2700X comes with the Wraith Prism LED Cooler, and the 2700 comes with the Wraith Spire LED Cooler.

If you want to Overclock go with the 2700 with a good aftermarkedt cooler on a MB with a good VRM.
If you just want to run it set at stock settings get the 2700X.

PS
That Gigabyte B450 Aorus M doesn't look to have a very good VRM for Overclocking.

The top-end X470 boards, which were the first to launch for AMD’s Ryzen 2 CPUs, supposedly feature at least the components required for 8+3 phase function. However, the B450 motherboards are actually lacking the necessary components required for eight phases, and are realistically four phase VRMs with a second inductor roped in for a little extra.
