It should be fine. Also why the max vs the standard? Looking at specs, there's little to no difference but an extra few bucks.
The max versions comes with out of the box ryzen 3000 series support. The non max msi versions needs a bios upgrade before you can post with your 3000 series cpu.

If the said tomahawk non max has USB bios flash feature without a cpu/ a computer store near by or the dealer itself will do it, it's not that big of a deal.

If that's the case, the extra few bucks is seemingly worth it for peace of mind!
 
This should be better...
