Soon I'm going to buy:
Ryzen 5 2600
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2 x 8 GB
(unsure)

I have three choices on mobo:
ASUS B450-F
MSI Tomahawk Max
Gigabyte Aorus B450 Elite

I want to know which one is better, more RAM compatibility, and importantly has less issue.
I don't plan overclocking soon.
Thanks for future inputs!

I would go with the MSI board unless you're aiming for 2 M.2 drives seeing as the ASUS board has 2 M.2 drive slots, the MSI only has one. The MSI board has better VRMs (needed for overclocking, even though you said you weren't going to anytime soon), 1 more fan header than the ASUS board does and it's cheaper in most countries.

Noted, but I saw the other recommendations from here is the ASUS, because tomahawk max had more issues posted here, so I'm bit confused

The Tomahawk Max is the most sold B450 board at the moment. The other board that I would recommend is the B450 Gaming pro carbon ac.

They both have good VRM's and they won't give you any problems whatsoever.

What issues with a Tomahawk Max? I’ve got one running a 3700X and had zero issues. However the first thing I did was install the latest BIOS.
I one user said it has more issues posted here than the ASUS counterpart, how did you update yours? did you use older generation ryzen?

I had a Asus Rog Strix 450-f Mobo, had it for a year and then killed it with an idiotic OC..... <Mod Edit> happens, then got the Asus Rog Strix x470 and man am I glad I fried the 450..... better if OC'ing on a budget is your thing.
