Looking to overclock G.Skill 3600Mhz CL16-16-16-36 at 3733Mhz with the same timings, for CPU i have R5 3600 going to overclock as well. Which X570 motherboard is the most stable? Must be under 300

Woah... under 300?... You're looking to spend more on the motherboard compared to a CPU just to OC your memory 133 MHz?

To inform you, when OCing your memory usually the modules themselves might be the limitation or even your CPU, before the motherboard.
If the motherboard supports 3733 MHz memory in their specifications it should be fine.

You're just wasting money on a X570 with the ryzen 3600 I'm afraid.
A MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX is a really solid motherboard choice(the best B450 out of the bunch in my eyes) .... it's really great for OCing(even though on ryzen 3000 is basically worthless, since you have pbo+xfr). It's also compatible out of the box with the 3600, because the BIOS is updated on the MAX variants to support Zen 2 from the get go.

Also, the difference between 3600 and 3733 MHz on identical timings will be insignificant really(non-existent in many cases)... OCing to 3733 with the same timings will depend mostly on the capabiliities of the modules first, before the motherboard(the B450 Tomahawk MAX supports it anyways).

ok you talked me into getting tomahawk, i heard this model so many times lately. Also i would like to ask you is it worth it getting such expensive rams ? Most people get 3200mhz cl16
