I'm thinking about buying a mobo for 1600X oc. I plan on buying an 8-core Ryzen 3 CPU when it comes out so it needs to have good oc capabilities. It also needs to support 3200MHz RAM. Which motherboard has the best VRMs? Budget around 150 USD.

Any improvements in X470 over X370 in oc capabilities, anything beside this worth noting?

I've just checked out a few lists and these were the stand-outs:
  • MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
  • ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate
  • MSI X370 GAMING PRO CARBON
  • ASUS X370-Pro
 
If you are planning to upgrade to 3rd gen Ryzen then b450/x470 is the way to go. It's not all about actual chipset but more about the way MBs are made around the chipset.
X470 MBs tend to have better power delivery and better suited for higher core count.

Alright thanks for the input, I went for the MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC after watching buildzoid's video on YouTube.
Bluetooth was the deciding factor, I figured since I'm playing on an XOne controller I might as well just get a board with it integrated instead of using a cable like I do now.
It also has ok-ish power delivery (enough for a respectable 2700X OC), which is more than on the competing mobos in this price range according to the video. The only advantage X470 boards have is SLI support and 2 additional USB ports, also I'd lose ALC1220 audio which would improve my Sennheiser's sound substantially.
Needless to say I'd rather buy an USB hub than a Bluetooth card.
