I've had no major issues with this board yet. Was able to get my RAM running at its stated speed, 2666, with a voltage and clock adjustment.
Some things to note before you buy/build:
Ryzen's stealth cooler used with the 1400 bumps right up against the RAM. Check my build photos for an example. Be sure to position the jutting out AMD logo on the fan opposite the RAM slots.
Put your graphics card in last, it covers up much of the board.
This board only has support for two case fans, one 3 pin and one 4 pin. My case came with two 3-pin fans so I just bought a splitter to power them both off the one connection. If you plug a 3 pin fan into a 4 pin connector, the fan will only run full speed.
If you want to change CPU voltage for your overclock, you may have to update the BIOS. The version mine came with didn't allow this.
All that said, if you're on a tight budget, this is still a quality board.
It's cheap, it's simple, but I can overclock.
Doing well for me, first ever use. Two things:
A) RAM has only one side to click, but you must push hard enough to hear two clicks.
B) As another review said, and I forgot, make sure your cooler doesn't have the logo over the RAM. I had to spin my around.
I can see why people complain about CMOS clear but I haven't used it yet lol.
But I was able to get everything to go, so far so good!
I had to buy a fan splitter to connect the 3 fans in my case, so keep that in mind if you're considering this MOBO.
nearly scared the heck out of me when i put my CPU in wrong... still works and does what it has to. I overclocked my CPU to 3.5 ghz, so im happy this board allows that :)
Its fine for what it is. BIOS is kind of blah.
Easy to work with, felt like everything was placed where it could be easily accessed
I wish it had more pcie expansion slots because it only has one 16x and a 1x but other than that it is a good motherboard
More than Decent motherboard for the money, looks great and hasn't died on me yet, ( will update if it dies )
A good starter mobo if you're doing Ryzen. Not the most flashy or feature-laden, but it gets things done, and it overclocks modestly well. I flashed the latest BIOS on mine before setting up the OS, in the event I'm able to upgrade to a 2nd-gen chip with a higher core/thread count.
