I'll only be moderately overclocking, nothing too extreme with my first build. Maybe after a year or so after having my PC i will probably do so. I've heard the Tomahawk has better VRM's but is that worth the price difference ($30 -$35). My budget is about $800 CAD, if anyone has any other suggestions for Ryzen 5 compatible motherboards that are within my budget that would be awesome as well.

Here is my build:

The Tomahawk is one of the Better B450 mobo's out there. It's highly rate for the reason you mentioned and others, including mem compatibility with DIMMS that aren't on the QVL. It's a nice mobo. I'd take it and the $30 hit over the ASRock anytime.
