Anyone using Ryzen 5 1600 YD1600BBAFBOX?

I purchased a B450I Gaming Plus AC motherboard from MSI. MSI states it, "Supports 1st, 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD® Ryzen™/ Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics / 2nd Gen AMD® Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Graphics and Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics Desktop Processors for Socket AM4". After reading that, I grabbed a Ryzen 5 1600 and thought I was good-to-go. I didn't notice it was YD1600BBAFBOX and not on the supported list. This thing seems to be in no-man's land if it's not 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Gen.


I'm having a very hard time finding any supported CPU. With the difficulty of replacing the CPU, now I'm hoping to keep the CPU and replace the motherboard, but that's not looking any easier. I feel like this build is dead. Anyone currently using YD1600BBAFBOX or a mini-itx mobo? Any work around like a boot kit?
