Soon to be Red Team (RyZen) Questions!

I'm new around here, but have always been a big fan of AMD products.


Quite sadly, during the late 2011 and early 2012 launches, I felt a bit demotivated on the FX series (bit too high TDP for me at that time, used to live in a really hot place...)


I'll soon be switching to a beautiful RyZen 7 1700, my budget isn't very big, but I like to build computers that will last for years in the top performance spec.


I'm in doubt with the motherboard though.


I've been in love with the Gigabyte AX-370 Gaming K5, that will set me a pretty penny, together with a 2x8gb DDR4 3000 Mhz ram kit.


I've been doing a fair amount of research but I couldn't find...very decisive info. I also looked up the MSI Tomahawk Arctic B350, that looked really great. (I'll get the NZXT S340 Elite White, so, white details inside will look great!


Is there any motherboard you'd recommend me getting for a possible 3.8~4.0 OC on that chip? Also, is it worth getting a cheaper motherboard for 3200 Mhz memory?


Thanks in advance!
