What motherboard should I choose for Ryzen 5 2600 + 2x8 GB RAM G.Skill CL16 3600MHz? I only used Intel before and I heard that there are some problems with memory compatibility on Amd Ryzen but I want it to be able to run the ram at the native speed. Also I don't plan on overclocking the CPU. Thanks for helping.

mATX, non-OC: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-I GAMING
ATX, overclockable: MSI X470 GAMING M7 AC
ATX, overclockable: GIGABYTE AORUS X470 Gaming 7 WIFI

I couldn't find a non wifi one. It would be 40-50€ cheaper without it. These are all I could find.

I think it's fair to say any AM4 board can use 3600MT/s DIMM's. Actually attaining that speed with stability is a different matter and probably depends as much, if not more, on the specific CPU...the quality of the IMC and silicon...as anything else.

Really? Does the amd xmp for ram have a hard limit? On intel pentium g5400,( a $50 cpu) +z370 mb the ram worked at 3600mhz with no problem.
