I am trying to upgrade my CPU which pretty much requires me to get a new motherboard and I have been fiddling around and researching and came to a build on pcpartpicker. I picked out a mobo and processor combo and it had two little compatibility notes and im not sure if they are going to be a problem since I really do not know much ab this. Obiously, Im no expert AT ALL when it comes to PC components so I thought id come here to see what your opinions are on it and if you guys have any advice for me. Thank you!

Link to my current build if it helps: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/PlummtPvP/saved/#view=JvBV3C
Here is the link to the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/PlummtPvP/saved/9zDDxr

Note: Everything on that build is what I currently have in my PC minus the mobo and the processor

You will need a DDR4-3200MHz ram kit to see the best out of your Ryzen platform. You will be good with a B450 chipset, stock cooler will be alright with the CPU, no need for the Hyper212Evo and that CX600 unit needs to go out of that build.
 
Skip the cooler, the stock Ryzen cooler is as good as the 212

Get 3200mhz or faster RAM, Ryzen likes fast RAM.

120GB SSDs fill up incredibly fast. The Crucial MX500 is a good drive and usually a little cheaper then Samsungs.

What country are you located in?
