-i would go with 3200mhz ram and get samsung nvMe.
-you also didnt mention a cooler, so i am assuming you sticking with stock cooler, which is good for stock speed.

also i think b450 dont support 3rd gen ryzen out of box, they need Bios update, i could be wrong on that.
rest of the build seems solid

Yeah you're right it doesn't, is it hard to update the bios with this board?
Or should I go with the x570-A PRO

Just my thoughts:

  • Agreed that 3200 is just as suitable, you likely won't notice much difference between 3200 and 3600 RAM.
  • Crucial P1 is fine, the only alternative I would consider and usually recommend is the Intel 660p. Ultimately, you likely won't notice a difference from any NVMe over any standard SATA SSD.
  • Just looking at the price difference of 60AUD - 3600 will be just as fine as the 3600X. Most people opt for the former as the 3600X is only the tiniest of improvements - effectively it's just better binned chips. But obviously that's just food for thought.
  • Also remember the B450 will need to have a newer BIOS prior to installing a 3rd Gen ryzen to work.
  • Excellent choice in PSU by the way!

For the BIOS update, unless your board has BIOS flashback, you can only update the BIOS with an out of the box compatible CPU installed (for B450, you'd need a 2nd gen ryzen to do so)

The parts will fit on the ITX board you linked, but you'll need to verify if the parts fit in an ITX case (usually CPU cooler and GPU clearance)

However you have a mid tower linked, so no problem. Remember for an ITX case you'd likely also need a SFF PSU.

Any reason why an ITX board in a mid ATX case?
