This has probably been asked before but I wanted an answer more specific towards my build. I have an ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard and a ryzen 3 2200g. I want to upgrade the processor to a ryzen 7 3700x and was wondering if the motherboard would bottleneck my processor in any way or should I be fine?

The impact of mobos on performance is negligible most of the time. As ChumP said, only the top CPUs are affected by the power delivery. One thing that may be a problem when it comes to performance is the type of PCIe but that only matters in very old boards
