What´s better with some blink? B450 or X470? Or is there a budget X570 with decent blink? It has to house a 1700 or 2700 Ryzen 7 CPU later. Depends, what is cheaper in my country.

forget x570, its very expensive and unnecessary unless you need pcie4.0 ssd speeds.

I dont understand what you mean with blink (rgb lights?). There is no budget x570 boardas far as i know. Best option is probably a X470 (more usb connections, yaay).

btw i recommend a ryzen 5 3600 instead, its faster than both and more efficient for not much more money.

I have to stick with at least 8 cores 16 threads, because I plan to use it as Multiseat-PC. 4 x Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse. The Blink refers to RGB. Not necessarily colorful disco lights. I got a Deepcool Matrexx 30. My glas panel case.

I did only once overclock an old AMD Athlon II 3X, by increasing the base clock speed. After I faced blue screen once in a while I increased the voltage. Then it happened rarely, so I gave it a tick more core voltage. Then it stood stable.

X570 is positioned over x470, so with both be sold at the same time. That means they also be more expensive. X470 will give you a lot options and some lower prices boards are close to b450 prices.
