What motherboard do/will you have to go with this chip?
I have 1700 and I like it. This higher power chip was putting too much strain on the B350 voltage reglators, so I had to turn down the overclock. A X370 board with more vrms would be better for mine. This one cpu, however, should not have issues on any board.

An MSI B350M VHS-PRO

(i swear i dont know what all that random letter fuckery means)

It can play VHS tapes at professional level.

nice! I personally have a ryzen 1700 and it is beastly at multitasking. Just be careful not to heat it to much when(if) you overclock it.

Yes, ram bandwith is also a concern, my idea is to get 4 4GB modules eventually, but its just too expensive atm.

There are only two channels, so you won't see improvement from 4 modules. Evenso, the more "ranks" you install, the lower the max frequency will be.

Yes, i know, i just meant that for the moment i will only use 8 GiB
