Yes i do definitely plan on upgrading as soon as i can but currently my i5 8400 is not giving me the performance i need when i try to stream at the same time and i thought that maybe this would mb would get me by for now with a slight overclock to 3.8 do you think i could squeeze that out of this?Yes it will work, however since the 1700 is a 8 core chip Im not sure how much you will be overclocking with that board. You really need/want a X370/X470 board for a 8 core chip.
For future reference almost all motherboard manufacturers have support pages like this
Well i would love to but im currently on a budget and really hsve no choice right nowPersonally I would return the motherboard and get a i7-8700 in your current motherboard, Intel beats out Ryzen still and even though the 1700 has 2 more cores the performance of the 8700 is just better.
That is usually not an issue you just have to do a little research first to make sure your selected CPU is supported on the MFG support site CPU list.Ive just always heard that depending on the brand and board VRM may be a limiting factor with the 8 core chips.
I wouldn't sweat it...Well i would love to but im currently on a budget and really hsve no choice right now
