im not gonna overclock anything, just ram to xmp profile, and not gonna upgrade my cpu in a looog time

but some people say that using a low range mobo may slow the pc performance

my next pc:
ryzen 3 3300x
gtx 1650 super
2x8gb ram 3000mhz
psu be quiet 500w*

**Acoding to gigabyte website i can pair them but wanna hear your opinion first

The b450 WILL support the 4000 family of Ryzen ......but will not be able to use all the features of the new CPU in all respects...... a b550 or x570 would be a better choice if I was going to buy a board right now. The VRM's on a b450 may well struggle with the needs of a 4000 cpu and if you have a weak PSU on it then problems are nearly guaranteed to arise.

Hi @BrokenKB

You say "without inconvenience"..... That's an interesting way to put it. :)

It should work but you'll most likely have to flash the Bios on the A320 and honestly, I'd strongly advise you to go with a minimum of a B450 if you are going to use a Ryzen 3k series CPU. The A320 were very basic mobo's when they came out and were geared for budget systems around the Ryzen 1k & 2k CPU's.

Here is a good read here on Tom's about the differences of an A320 & B450 mobo.

nice answer, i think i will save $40 and buy a b450m, but the fact that ryzen 4000 will not work at b450 hurts a bit
