    All motherboard have OC settings unfortunately, however they do not advertise that the motherboard can overclock. You can't overclock with that chipset

    The b350 motherboard supports overclocking. It is an AM4 socket which is suitable for the Ryzen series.

    Depends your budget and what you are planing to use the computer. If it's for multitasking, gaming, I would recommend the Ryzen 1600. However if it's for work I would get the mini itx as intel doesn't have more than 4 cores.

  9. The system is basically a secondary pc for home media and portable usage and some 1080p games. Plan on steaming I'll probably just use a elgato for its recording
