Thanks buddy for the reply but want this combo to run for at least 3 to 4 years so no plan to buy used

Asus X570 TUF Gaming Plus

Planned to go for this combo but on newegg & amazon.com have some negative reviews regarding DOA but youtube reviews were good, any personal experience with this board?

Hi buddy
Ryzen already bought from amazon got a pretty deal
MSI after-sales reputation is not that good so don't want to ride on a burning ship ;)
RAM seems fine if you are using it
how is your experience with ryzen so far?
any stability issues or heating troubles?

Thanks & Regards
JJ

Are you going to buy from Newegg, Amazon,
No right
Then buy MSI which has some very good VRAM and VRAM heatsinks
Or else buy the suggested board.
Or wait for others suggestions

As for me Ryzen 5 3600, MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC is working good but since using stock cooler it's runs somewhat hot during gaming sessions.

Almost all present batch Mobos are updated for Ryzen 3000.

I think he is referring to earlier suggested combo by nac for Amazon USA and Newegg.

Can you get RAMs from Amazon USA/Newegg ? There are plenty deals right now for 3600 MHz 16GB kits at about US$70. You may also have a look on Ballisitix Sport LT. They are excellent overclockers and go around US$65 mark for 3200MHz kit when in deal. I am using 3000MHz kit running at 3466MHz 16-18-18-36 timings stable.

The higher the RAM frequency the better but the sweet spot is 3200Mhz of course but since 3600Mhz kit is available for 7.3k from prime abgb so better go with it.

Yes, exactly the reason I mentioned it in my post and myself running it at 3466 - max supported by my mobo. Ballistix Sport LT are E-die memory - which is regarded as second best after expensive B-die memory. This one can go all the way to 3733MHz; Only if OP can source it from out of India.

How much it gets hot while gaming & idle temperature, please

Yes, I saw the Ballistix one it's at 75$ right now but is it compatible with Ryzen 5

Have you bought it from newegg?
their estimated vat is the customs duty or customs duty is separate payable on delivery?
I have not yet purchased anything from Newegg but can purchase
I have experience buying from amazon more

Thanks & Regards

No, I don't have personal experience. Suggestion was based on reviews I read/watched.
Even the best products get some negative remarks. If it's overwhelming amount of negative reviews, then avoid. I hope it's not the case with this board.

Buying from Amazon.com or newegg, we don't get India warranty.
