Question Are there any micro atx or itx motherboards that can handle the Ryzen 7 2700x at stock speeds?

Workstation build no overclocking just looking for something with good vrm's that can handle long render sessions.

I have personally been eying the B450 chipset one for an ITX build for my fiances next PC.
Thanks for your input Jimmy, I tried the Asrock B450m Pro4 and I don't think the VRM could handle the 2700x. Maybe a 2600x would be fine in it though. I've actually gone through two of these boards in six months. I'm looking for something with good VRM. I'm thinking the 570 boards may be more suitable for the 2700x since it has 8 cores.

I'm trying to find out if that Asus board is 8 phase or not, it doesn't look like it.

sure, there are a number of options.
built an ITX system for my stepson christmas of 2017 with a 1700x and an Asrock fata1ty B450 it runs happy with slight OC at 3900mhz and Noctua aftermarket . if i did it again i'd probably opt for the microatx. stepson later had some trouble with his video card running too hot in the small case and had to improve the airflow.

I'm trying to find out if that Asus board is true 8 phase or not, at least it looks like it is 8 from the image.
I linked the Asus X470-I Gaming. I was just looking at the B450 personally as I don't need to spend the extra cash.

I also linked a review showing that at stock the X470-I Gaming handled the stock and overclocked speeds pretty well.
