Which motherboard will be good

So i will build a pc with ryzen 1600,gtx 1060 6 gb and 8 gb corsair vengeance ddr4 2400mhz ram. Which motherboard would you prefer out of these two if i have to overclock my cpu and ram-
Gigabyte ab350 gaming 3
Or
Asus strix b350 f
Which Of These Would d Allow Me To Overclock the Ram Upto 3200 and cpu to 4.0ghz at stock cooler and i won't overclock gpu.
Psu will be corsair vs550 in case you need to know
Can there be any malfunction with the system with these overclockings?
Thanks in advance......

  1. Asus strix b350F looks good and can overclock your CPU too but as you mentioned about malfunction. you have to check and test at at different volts i cant tell that

    If you're looking to overclock, the 370 chipset is much more adept at it. The 350 chipset has a lot of limitations for overclocking. For instance, you won't be able to set a specific voltage, you'll have to use an offset voltage. Limited availability of SOC voltage settings, LLC settings, et al.

    There's no guarantee, that with whatever board you'll get, that you'll get an overclock of 4ghz. Some may hit 4ghz at 1.28v, some will hit it at 1.45v, and some won't be able to hit it at all, no matter how much voltage you throw at them. Also, considering they have a somewhat weak IMC (integrated memory controller), the faster you run the memory, the more voltage the CPU will take to reach a desired clock.

  5. Correct, the B350 VRMs are not very decent, enough but if you want to overclock might be better idea to grab a X370 model.
    If you go for B350 looks like MSI and Asrock doing the best

    x370 will be out of my budget. can you tell me a cheap x370 board in around 11k INR

    No idea what the exchange rate is like, or what prices are like in your country, but....The Gigabyte GA-AX370 Gaming and the MSI X370 Gaming Plus are both about $120 US. Those are the cheapest with that chipset, that aren't made by Biostar, which....I would highly suggest staying clear away from.
