Hey all so I am looking into purchasing a new motherboard for my Ryzen 2600x build and have narrowed it down to these two options. They both have my ram on the QVL list but I am just not sure which would be the better option. I am currently leaning towards MSI because I had a B350 f gaming board from ASUS that just refused to run my ram at the rated speed despite it being on the qvl list. I should note that there isn't much of a price difference ($143 vs. $158). Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

Edit: Should also note that I am not planning on doing SLI

They are not that different but the X470 supports overclocking and higher RAM speeds, and has 8 channel audio if you're interested in that. Also RAID and three PCI-E x16 (2 x 3.0, 1 x 2.0) if wanted even if not planning on SLI. The B450 has Wireless LAN and Bluetooth.
