B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Max would’ve been my mobo of choice since X57p really isn’t intended for this budget.
Could go Micron E-did for not much more, you get more flexibility with timings and OC which as shown by recent RAM tests to deliver a considerable performance boost.
Custom 5700 XT cards out in a few weeks, Micron E die memory overclocks to 3600CL16 very consistently, Zen 2 ready mobo, High-end PSU: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1045610-new-psu-tier-list/
MSI Max mobos will be our soon, there’ll be better options.
Getting 3000MHz up to 3600MHz will need 1.375V probably, I would just stay at 3200Mhz and see how much the timings could be tightened. https://youtu.be/CloyuBw_E_0
If he is mainly playing Fortnite then I would downgrade to RX 5700 and get higher quality components like an aftermarket cooler and higher PSU capacity for longevity and efficiency.
Thanks for your opinion, wish you well.
