I have a Ryzen first gen 1600 running at 3.7GHz OC sitting on my motherboard ASUS B350M-E. The motherboard didn't have vrm heatsinks so I bought the tiny Raspberry Pi heatsinks and attached them to VRM chips near CPU.

With the stock cooler blowing down on the VRM heatsinks I did feel any heat on VRMs.

But I bought a hyper 212 to OC the CPU and the VRM heatsinks are toasty, but not too hot at 3.7GHz.

Do you think this motherboard can withstand a ryzen 1600 at 3.9GHz?

Try it and see. It's going to depend on your cooling capability.
200MHz is not going to make much of a performance difference so if your stable at 3.7GHz then leave it at that.
Make sure to update the Bios to latest version for better stability.

I believe that I can reach 3.9GHz , what I am worried about is the VRM on motherboard.
