Just replaced the components on my Area 51 R2 with the following and all lighting works including side panels.

Ryzen 3900X
MSI MEG X570 Ace Motherboard
GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 TI DirectX 12 GV-N208TAORUS X-11GC Video Card
64 GB 3600 DDR 4 Gskill Tridentz Neo
EVGA 1600 P2 PSU (the original back support plate wouldnt fit so took it out anyways and doesnt affect aesthetics.
Corsair H80i V2
Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 NVme

Let me know if you have any questions, I looked alot before upgrading and couldnt get a definite answer if anyone had tried putting an AM4 board in a 51 R2 with working lights.
