Summary of the comments are bang on in some areas.

so going to go over some of the comments above..

B450 is more of a solid product price for a budget end CPU - Most buyers know.
mismatch statement, - in some ways it is but in others it isnt, remember this is as much a elite budget X570 rather then top end.
the comment about this X570 being enthusiast, goes with the above statement in some ways it is and other isnt, its not an expensive X570.

so the argument is there, and on the other foot not really. against a B450 yes, against the upper X570 no it isnt, so for that its not that mismatched.

end of the day, as usual i post a competive item/bundle for review.

people have there thoughts, ive got mine. its a solid product / price... its a good deal for them who want this aspect and there's many who require such type (i speak to buyers of such type.....)

so sometimes the deals i post aint for the "usual crowed" there for actual real buyers"

and then we got another comment by the grammer police guy: Jog on.

X570 is newer and has the PCIE gen 4 lanes which are faster and supported by the ryzen 3 chips.
X570 is a good platform for future proofing as well. AMD recently said newer chips wouldn't be supported on b450 boards, but after consumer feed back they said they would provide support via bios updates for some boards.

I see, thanks mate.

Apologies but one more question based around the bios update thing you mentioned. I've just bought a b450 tomohawk max, and I'm thinking of waiting until the new zen 4000 series is out to buy a chip. Would I not be able to put a 4 series chip straight in the board and run it, or would I need to put an older chip in it first to update, and then put in a 4 series chip?

Tbh I'm not a 100% sure. I have recently got into researching for my first build so I'm fairly new to the scene.
From all the YouTube vids I've seen I believe you can do an update without any memory or cpu installed on boards.
You will also have to check of the Tomohawk max will get the bios update. I also heard that once you update the bios you can't roll back. So you wouldnt be able to go back to 3000 series chips.

You will be able to do a bios update via usb before putting the new cpu in. youtube.com/wat…u20
wont be any dif from the current method.

Might depend on the current bios version, pretty sure some boards have been upgraded/updated before they were shipped.
The tomahawk max rom size is big enough to have both zen 2 and zen 3 bios, so if you’ve got a 3000 chip you should be able to update the bios then put the 4000 chip in as it should support both series, the issue comes up with b450 boards with smaller rom sizes having to do away with previous gen support
Main difference on x570 board is the PCIe and also the VRM are designed to handle more power than x470 and B450 chips so theoretically you can overclock harder on these boards.

PCIe 4. Not many devices are on that format yet and even the few SSD that do use it have little to no difference to PCIe 3 devices.

Better VRM more power - this may just be marketing where the board manufacturer trying to sell us expensive stuff for no real gain. The benefit of higher rating VRM is the temperature on the board should be less given the same amount of power demand. Also future CPUs should be more efficient. 5nm CPU can do the same with upto 20% less power requirement or can do 20% more with the same power demand as current CPU. So who knows if these things holds any value at all. Though it is worth pointing out that there are such thing as bad VRM such as most of the MSI X570 boards other than the Godlike and Tomahawk

Gave up reading after that...
Perfect start for a gaming pc. I went for an MSI X570 Unify (£280) plus a 3900x. Both are great but I wish I'd gone for a 3300x as I'll upgrade for Zen 3 anyway.
Firstly AWD.. meh.. but it's a bonkers deal!! The 3300x is not a bad cpu but it's pretty low end when the x570 is a high end chipset. So would want a better cpu drag the guts out of the better cpu, you chuck a 3300x in a b450 not and x570
thats an amazing deal , but a bit ridiculous , while the cpu is for budget build the mb is for enthusiast . I have the same mb for almost 1 year and is one of the best in relatively cheap x570 market , it has more sata ports than most boards , better cpu power delivery than the most, one of the few boards that offer PS2 ( it still matter for some) and as any TUF item it comes with extended warranty, but unless you build and plan for an upgrade fairly quick there is no need for that mb.
PS: while the standard warranty on MB is 5 years , the specified warranty on AWD-IT is only 3 , so better make sure of whats what

I think the update for the 450 series will be slightly different this time as AMD said that fitting Zen 3 onto those board will require support or older processors being removed from the bios and you will no longer be able to flash it back to an older version anymore.

I didn't realise that there weren't going to support the 450/470 until and recent change of mind.

m.hexus.net/tec…rt/
Bit of a mismatch with low(ish) end cpu and high end board. However, if you are sure you want to overclock at some time and want a much higher end cpu in the future it could be ok.
Otherwise maybe wait for the B550s (which I believe are not as cheap as they should be).
Or if you are just going to use a 3300x as it comes out the box with no major overclocking, just get a cheapish B450 (maybe on Amazon Warehouse) for the time being and save the difference for an eventual B650 in a few years time for your next cpu upgrade . It will not cost you any more in the long run and you will be more future proof.

It seems a mismatch but there is one situation where this deal makes sense - if you’re planning on a high end 4000 series build but want something now. The Ryzen 4000 is out at the end of the year with supposedly significant performance improvements. It seems silly to shell out on a high end chip now, better to wait a few months. Either way you’ll get the latest generation or hopefully a good discount on something like the 3900x. In the mean time, although 3300x is relatively low end, it’s still respectable & holds its own against the 3600 for gaming.
I’m toying with building a pc now and have been looking for a x570 board as I do plan on buying the 4 series chip when it comes out, oh decisions :/

this is one of the best budget x570 mb you can get, and is perfect if you want to plan to upgrade when 4k series is out. but like i said b4, check the warranty , it says 3 years on AWD-IT where normally it should be 5
