Can the MSI b450m or b450 gaming plus handle a stable oc of R7 2700 (not 2700X) @ 4.2Ghz? I'm planning to use a celsius s24 AIO for cooling.
Or should I rather go with an x470 mobo with more vrm phases?

4.2Ghz is not a necessity, but it would be great. I can get by with an oc of 4.0Ghz - 4.1Ghz.

What kind of workloads do you plan on running? If just regular gaming I'd say go for it.

But if your workload is gonna be extreme: with long-duration renders or video encoding that hit all cores really hard for multiple hours at a time, you might like the extra margin a higher phase-count mobo, like the X470 Gaming Pro Carbon, provides.
