new b450 form gigabyte, seems to be an atx upgrade over b450m gaming.
supprisingly there are 2 addressable rgb headers, and using alc892, but still realtek lan.
lots of usb headers on back i/o, six sata headers old man like these.
just one internal headers of usb 2.0, so pick one out of case front i/o usb 2.0 or some aio with usb cable or some argb/rgb stuff with usb cable etc.
a cheap version of b450 aorus pro and aorus elite, if vrm and gigabyte are all you need.

3600Mhz is ideal in that is should be easy to achieve in 99% of cases as long as your memory isn't bad.
3800 with 1900FCLK gives best performance instead. But not all motherboards and cpu:s can handle the 1900FCLK. There are cases when even 1800FCLK wasn't stable for some rare cases but most should be able to do 1800FCLK to match the 3600Mhz MEM speed.
That is unless you run 4xDR memory for 64GB etc which can limit your max clock to some extent. Seen people struggle with that to some extent.
We have seen systems at 3733 with lower subtimings performing much better than other systems at 3800.

As far as thermal performance is concerned (relevant for high-core-count, high-wattage 3900X & 3950X CPUs) the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7, with 5x2 Vcore phases and massively overkill VRM heatsinks, might be the best of the X470 lot:

Forgot this test as well:

Hot off the presses (figuratively)
Measured with a infrared camera , Ryzen 9 3900X VRM temps with Wraith Prism 1900RPM:
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max = 82.1°C
Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite = 92.1°C
Asrock B450 Steel Legend = 96.0°C
Ryzen 9 3900X VRM temps with Corsair H150i AIO @ 1200RPM:
ASUS TUF B450-PRO GAMING = 79.2°C
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max = 94.2°C
Asrock B450 Steel Legend = 98.8°C
Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite = 110.2°C
Surprising result to be honest , may have to do with measuring at front of the board (Tomahawk should be cooler than the TUF based on older testing)
edit: a refresher on the topology of the TUF Pro , it's Onsemi 4C10N x8 + 4C06N x8 (4 PWM phase) https://ru.gecid.com/mboard/asus_tuf..._gaming/?s=all
