Hi! Can you guys help me what Motherboaed to pair with Ryzen 3600 ?

I already have my draft at cart and i didn’t order it yet only the cpu. So here’s my draft


Gigabyte X570 Gaming X
Corsair Dominator 16gb
RX 5700XT 8gb

Also would it be okay to use the stock cooler for this or should i buy aftermarket coolers like NZXT?

Not sure about x570 boards but B550 Tomahawk or even b450 Tomahawk are more than enough for the 3600. Both boards come with relatively decent VRMs and can handle even a R9 3900X if you plan to upgrade to that although if you have enough money to get that cpu then you may as well spend more on X570 I guess.
If you're getting X570 for some specefic feature not in b450/b550 then sure wait for other replies ig.

I think i’m gonna use the 3600 and im kinda confused how the chipsets work cos i was kinda worried if I will still update the bios manually or the brand new motherboards are already updated

All B550 and X570 boards will support the 3600 out of the box.
B450 Boards that have this on the box will work with the 3600 out of the box.
MSI B450 boards that have "Max" at the end of the name will also be compatible out of the box e.g B450 Tomahawk MAX.

The gigabyte board you mentioned will be fine and allow for good upgradability in the future.

I believe AMD reccomends the X570 for all their 3rd gen Ryzens, and though other boards will work (sometimes with a BIOS update required), they may not be as optimal.
