[SOLVED] Is Gigabyte A520M S2H good enough for Ryzen 7 2700x/ 5 3600/5 5600 at Stock Speeds?

I will have very limited system most likely with Ryzen 5 3600,16GB DDR4 3200mhz Ram, RX 5500 XT 8GB and 1 M.2 NVME budget SSD. I don't care about PCIE GEN 4 or future gen CPU compatibility, i care about motherboards ability to run system without throttling at stock speeds. 2700x has TDP of 105watts, everything else is 65 watts.

The thing is i can get this board very cheap for 37$ (new condition) and it also has Q-Flash Plus Update BIOS function, it also has 4+3 Phases Pure Digital VRM Solution with Low RDS(on) MOSFETs , but doesn't seem to have VRAM Heatsinks. Do you think this motherboard will do good with no overclock, except for RAM (XMP). Main purpose will be rendering, game development,gaming.

That motherboard should be fine for the lower TDP CPUs. The 5600 should perform well.

Just make sure you have good airflow with your case and fans.
