It was the cheapest RYZEN board available at the time I built my budget R5 system - That said, nothing about this board feels "budget" - It has an M.2 slot, it has a killer colour theme that's just the perfect balance of eye-catching and subdued, it has LEDs along the edge which are again perfectly subdued, and it has the PCIex16 slot as the SECOND expansion slot, instead of the first, which - - - You have no idea how useful that it!!
Only disappointments are: only 2 case fan headers aside from the CPU header (would have liked to see 3) and only 2 RAM slots (but whatever, it's enough if you plan for it).
Got me to 2933mhz using the A-XMP profile on the first try, only complaint is it only has 4 sata ports.
Good motherboard! It has everything I need.
A good mother board for the price had plenty of room inbetween the cpu cooler and ram i cant speak for the number of fan headers i use a fan controller so but so far after a week of heavy usage its holding up quite nicely.
All B350 mobo's can OC your components which really helps keep the costs low on a Ryzen build! I picked this Micro ATX case mainly because it was on sale and has amazing BIOS support. Also, the QVL had the RAM I wanted as compatible at 3200Mhz! (the QVL is huge for this board btw) Not even the Gigabyte-AB350-Gaming 3 Mobo has this on the QVL for that speed. The red LED lights are also a nice add on as you can see in the pics and the OCing UI is super nice. I also love the fact that this Mobo has 4 fan headers which was quite a blessing because my case comes with 3 fans in it with no fan hub to power them all.
One of the few AM4 mATX boards around when I bought. No real complaints, it has a really premium feel and (most importantly) many shiny red LEDs. I would love to see another fan header, but it's fine.
Setup was a little bumpy. Had a bit of trouble posting with both sticks of ram in place. A-XMP didn't work for me, but I chalk that up to this being a newer piece of hardware. I could only get my ram up to 2667Mhz. (Though I briefly got it up to 2933 with just a single stick in place.) MSI assures me that future BIOS updates should address this.
