Ryzen 1500x on Motherboard supports 65w only

I am planning on buying a Ryzen 1500x and the asrock ab320m-h. But on their page it says that the motherboard only supports up to 65W. The ryzen 1500x is also a 65w CPU but I am planning to Overclock it. Will there be any problems.

    The 65 watt power refers to the Thermal Design Power (TDP).

    Thermal Design Power (TDP) is the maximum amount of heat generated by a computer CPU that the cooling system in a computer is designed to dissipate in typical operation. TDP is primarily used as a guideline for manufacturers of thermal solutions (heatsinks/fans, etc) which tells them how much heat their solution should dissipate.

    It has nothing to do with problems you may have overclocking.

    The components on the board are only designed to deliver 65 watts or less to the CPU. If you overclock you need to try to do so without raising the voltage to the chip.
    Buy a better board if your going to overclock.
