Question Should I switch my (unopened) MSI B450 Tomahawk Max for an ASRock B450 Steel Legend?

Hello, the title says it all. I bought a tomahawk but realized it doesn't have an argb header. I'll have a Lian Li Lancool 2 Mesh case with argb fans (I could control the fan lights from software). Is it worth it to send back the tomahawk just because of the rgb? Here both of them cost around 115 USD.
Other specs: Ryzen 5 3600, Corsair CX650M, a 3060 Ti in the future, 16 gb 3200 Mhz Corsair vengeance ram.
Also, if you have other reccommendations in this price range, I'll gladly take them :)

For a B450, this would work, and close in price

Good B550 cost more, as they are better built boards, and come with PCI-E gen 4 for the top GPU slot, and M.2 NVME. The chipset uses 3.0 vs 2.0 of a B450.
