I want to ask if anyone has any feedback on how well does the CPU run with this mobo? I know they're compatible but can the mobo really handle it or would I have issues somewhere?

Not something I would pick out. No heatsinks on the VRM and it is the low end chipset from AMD, so PCIe 3.0 instead of 4.0 and no overclocking capabilities. Worth it to get even the cheapest B550 or B450, but on top of that you want decent cooling on the VRMs.

Should be no problem, it’s a low wattage 65W CPU. Just make sure the case has proper airflow. Do not overclock.
