Hi,
I have a ryzen 5 2400G and an A320 motherboard. I'd like to upgrade the motherboard to a B450 to cover a future upgrade. I'd like to be able to do some moderate overclocking of the 2400g GPU and then perhaps whatever CPU I get subsequently. Probably that would be a ryzen 3000. So far so good. The problem is my budget is about £70 which might rule out any obvious options. I was thinking of the Asrock B450M pro4 which 'appears' to have some reasonable heatsinks on it but I'm not sure.

If anyone can suggest a less than expensive B450 motherboard that can cope with a little overclocking I'd appreciate it.

Regards Steve

The AsRock B450M Pro4 is a fine board.

Any idea what tier of Rzyen 3000 you'd be looking at. 3600 is a lot different than a 3950X.
Hi
Thanks for your reply.
I think it would probably be the 3600 but the 3700x with its extra cores might be a possibility if the price drops a lot as they do seem to do with AMD CPUs over time. I doubt if that could be successfully overclocked but perhaps the 3600 could be a bit.
