This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A decent board at just under £80. It is compatible with 3rd Gen Ryzen chips, although you'll want to update the bios for that. Could go nicely with any Black Friday CPU deals we may see.

this or tomahawk max

this or tomahawk max


The Tomahawk Max does have really good VRMs though so if you're going to overclock or pair it with a higher end Zen2 (or even Zen2+ next year) it might hold up slightly better.

The Tomahawk also comes with updated bios for the Zen2 chips.

Either way though both of them are good boards.

Isn't this overpriced too? Good deal op!
Does it have bios flashback like 570 version?

No flash back, you would need a compatible CPU to upgrade.

Cheers, I this case waiting for tomahawk deal.
This was 85 quid with a free game a year ago.. x570 posted earlier probably better deal.
This is average at best..

The tomahawk that I was looking at has gone up to to £96 now, it was £82 last Thursday lol.
So this or the gaming plus max?
This has 2 M2 slots, when the gaming and tomahawk only has 1 , but if I buy this then I can only put in a 2 series Ryzen, say the Ryzen 7 2700x, but the gaming plus max will accept the ryzen 5 3600 without flashing the bios

Post a better deal then. Or just post any deal?!
I quite.like the heatsink on one of the nvme slots

Err, why would me posting a deal make any difference with what i've said?
This board was 85 quid a year ago, 5 quid less after a year isn't great value.
the Max at 82 was better

What's the likelihood that someone who buys a new CPU and motherboard is going to have a "compatible CPU" lying about?

Rather than saying "compatible with 3rd Gen Ryzen chips, although you'll want to update the bios for that" it would be better to say: "WARNING: Not compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen chips unless you're able to install an earlier CPU in order to upgrade the BIOS"

I have this, is a good board and one thing to note is it will do raid on the nvme slots (imagine 6GB sec read ) would go GBT over MSI any day personally, if you gave Box a ring will they not make sure it is flashed before sending out?

So there is literally no way to update the BIOS to support Zen 2 unless you have an older Ryzen CPU? That sucks
Will this one will work with the Ryzen 7 2700x straight away?
but not with the Ryzen 5 3600, or have I got that wrong.

Yes it will. It's built for Ryzen 2000 and will work with 3000 with a bios update
Just sent a 2nd one of these back as wont post. 1st one died after about 8 months, got replacement under warranty and the 2nd died after about 3 months, exactly the same thing turned off and wouldnt post. Wouldnt touch one again, changed to an msi x570 but lost windows activation and had to repurchase that also.
Plenty of examples out there of this board failing.
