Ok to use x470 for 16 cores?
Since Ryzen cannot over clock at all?
I think it depends on the build of the board. I believe it should work perfectly fine with X470, assuming board is well built enough.

In fact, it seems if you don't need PCI4, X470 boards are the better board to get from a cost and power consumption standpoint.

Seems like most X570 boards out there are drawing a lot of power.
