The MSI B450 Tomahawk Motherboard Review: More Missile Than Axe
This cost can be attributed to the addition of RGB LEDs integrated into the board, as well as the inclusion of two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports. The B450 Tomahawk is widely available and can have a sale price of sub-$100 at Newegg, which makes it a lot more competitive in a currently crowded B450 motherboard market

Bought this kit 2 weeks ago with red heat spreaders. Ran at the 3200 XMP setting in my b450 tomahawk max with a ryzen 3600 without a hitch. Just plug and play.
I was actually looking for b450 Tomahawk Max, like my son's, for my daughter. But this is a nice board at a better price, especially when including that $20 steam credit. Thanks!
Ryzen 5 3600, 2070S, 16GB DDR4 at 3200MHz, B450 tomahawk Max all in the NZXT H510 case but upgrading to Lian-Li LANCOOL II as airflow is a lot better!
Play a whole bunch from CoD to OW, DBD and Cyberpunk and some indies and other games too!

* AMD Ryzen 7 processor. * MSI B450 Tomahawk motherboard.
3600x + b450 tomahawk max is going to be a better build imo. The ram will have to change to 2x8gb 3600mhz and you wont need an aftermarket cooler. So basically you will have few bucks freed to keep in your pocket with gaming and workstation-stream abilities. After that change the nvme m.2 to a sata 3 like 860 evo.
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max vs MSI B450 Tomahawk Max 2 – Which One is Best? - UBG
These small things could have been taken care of. However, the motherboard comes with exceptional features to design a new PC. Our winner would be the MSI B450 Tomahawk Max 2

B450 Tomahawk MAX,. 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200MHZ 8x4,.
Change the motherboard to a b450 tomahawk max or any other for the looks. Change the ram to 3600mhz and change the nvme m.2 to a sata 3 like a mx500 or 860 evo since its cheaper and same perfomance in gaming loads. Unless you want it for large file transfers which i doubt. The gpu is up to your choice but with the cut down from the above choices change the cpu ti a 3600x, better stock cooler and better perfomance.
