Can a Gigabyte - GA-B150M-HD3 DDR4 use a Ryzen CPU?

I want to upgrade from my i3 6100, but i also would like to spend less than 200 dollars. Ryzen is so much cheaper

Based on what you have shown

You have the wrong ram.
You want a 2x4GB @ 2133 kit so as to enable dual channel.

Your cpu is pushing close to the thermal limits.
Time for some cleaning and new thermal paste?
