Actually I thought £119.00 was a seriously good price without the OP piggy-backing on the eBay "£5 off £50, etc" voucher.
This processor is amazing. Overclocks up to 4.4Ghz
Anyone recommend me a mobo under 80 quid to go with this?
B450 Tomahawk if you can afford it or Asrock B450 Pro 4 for the best value and performance. I have the Steel Legend just for how cool it looks and it works great as well. Comes around £80

I'd steer clear of MSI's pre-X570 boards, personally, with the exception of the "Max" versions. They had to completely cripple newer BIOS revisions on them due to not being able to fit them on the smaller flash chips that they used for their B350/B450/X370/X470 boards (the "Max" versions have larger flash chips to resolve the issue). You could just use an older BIOS revision for this CPU, but if you ever wanted to drop in a 3000 (or 4000) series chip as an easy upgrade, you'd have to install the stripped-down BIOS to do so. Go with any other manufacturer.

4.4GHz?? You must have the diamond sample. 4.1GHz is a great OC for one of these, 4.2GHz is achieved on some but 4.4GHz is definitely very rare.

Even MSI X570 boards below £300 are crap compared to the competition. They have terrible VRM cooling compared to boards around the same price like the Asus tough gaming or even the Asrock Steel Legend.
Looks good, finally I think I'm convinced that AMD is probably my next CPU having stuck with intel since my IBM 6x86MX

Any recommendatios for an atx, non flashy reliable board? I really don't want gamer/led/manly crap, just a nice plain, reliable board (yes I'm old)
Is the sub £90 ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING AM4 Motherboard any good?

Thanks.
finally, can anyone recommend me some DDR4? lol

Nope. Not needed. Higher priced than usual.

The ASRock B450 Pro4 is a solid choice. It has one of the better VRM setups amongst B450 boards and will handle the eight-core parts just fine.

There's nothing particularly wrong with it, but the mATX version of the Pro4 is again a better choice. It has a stronger VRM setup than the Asus board and costs under £73 right now.

If you don't care about RGB lighting, the Ballistix Sport LT kits are exceptional value. They use Micron E-die memory chips, which overclock extremely well and are Ryzen-friendly. The basic 3200MHz kits can be pushed way higher if you want to do it (the Ryzen DRAM Calculator will help with the settings), but will also run at their XMP values just fine on Ryzen. You can get a 16GB kit for under £70 right now.

Out of stock but CCL have them for £110.72 with the same code: ebay.co.uk/itm…611

The max boards kinda bug me. With bigger bios what's to stop that bios size being utilised fully in the future and leaving the non-max boards down on features?
