Which mini-ITX motherboard would be best for this proposed build? I've looked at so many different ones, but they all seem to just have bad reviews. I don't want my computer that I will be spending $$$ on to crap out on me. I don't want it to overheat. I want the M.2 to work properly!! I want it to boot properly with the new Ryzen 3000 series CPU. I'm super anxious about this so some advice would be great!!

Here are the other parts I have my eyes on:

Case: Fractal Node 202 w/ power supply
CPU: Ryzen 3600
Cooler: Cryorig C7 (replacing Cryorig fan with bigger Noctua fan)
Memory: Corsair LPX 2x8 16GB DDR4 2666mhz
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB M.2 SSD
GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5500-XT 4GB
Motherboard: ??????

Also feel free to give me tips on my hardware and parts choices.

ASRock B450 ITX, there's a few reviews stating it worked out of the box with the 3600 (ASRock is good with shipping with newer BIOS per Newegg) and it's a excellent price.

You need faster memory, Ryzen performs ideally with 3000 or better yet 3200 in dual channel.

I can tell you the Asus ROG Strix X570-I is not compatible with the C7 out of the box. I had to take a hacksaw to the backplate and the copper fins on mine to get it to fit around interfering components on the front and back sides of the board.
