Does it support sli?


It does; SLI is the primary differentiating feature between b350 & x370.

However it's simultaneously the least useful feature; cost, power consumption, increased latency, limited game support, buggy & poor scaling in those games where it is supported.

The only time you should consider SLI is if:
1) Money is not a concern
2) You already have the most powerful GPU (and CPU) on the market

In ALL other cases, you should buy a more powerful single GPU.

Looks a good price.
Such a great price.
I wish this was this price last year when I got the b350 tomahawk. But c'est la vie
Is the vrm on this board any better than the (big)4+2 on the MSI B350 Krait / Gaming Pro Carbon? Looks to be the same to me.
Still a great price at £70, hot!

Great find! hot...
Nice find! I paid £125 for this last year, cracking board and been more than happy!
Heat op.... great price for great board.

Does it support sli?


I have this board, Its great with plenty of MSI updates. uild this system when ryzen was new. It supports:

SLI
Crossfire
NVME x4
RGB
Plenty of fan headers
USB 3.1
Type C

It has everything, My ryzen 1600 with stock fan @ 3.825ghz and 16GB (2400) to 2666 OC. Main reason why i wanted x370 board was the SLI.

Note, got my board over a year ago (Feb 2017) for around £81 after MSI promo cashback and Site cashback

Few sites have it listed as 8+2 power, but can't find official source for that.
It's 1p more from Scan, if you prefer them, and free delivery for AVForums members.
Apologies to slightly hijack this thread but have been putting off building a new pc as this one is doing all I need it to 7 years on (Phenom II X6). I don't do PC gaming but do a lot of video work mainly with Handbrake.

Would this board be overkill and would I need to go beyond a 1300 or 1500 Ryzen to partner it with?

If you use Handbrake (or most other encoding/transcoding software) a lot, you should be going straight for an 8 core Ryzen (whether that's a 1700, 2700, or 2700x depends upon budget and/or available deals). It's simply the best cost : performance proposition.

...and yes, this board would be a perfect fit for such a system.

If you were really flush, you might even consider threadripper, though that's a whole different (much more expensive) platform.

I use this MB with a Ryzen 1700 overclocking on auto voltage to 3.7 GHz. It also overclocks my 2400 Ram to 2933mhz. My only criticism is no manual offset voltage and the position of the top NVME slot is too close to the GPU. Great MB though.
What processor would be a good upgrade with this board if upgrading from Phenom 1100t? Thanks

Anything from the Ryzen range is a big upgrade to your CPU.

For example, looking at the low end Ryzen 1200 cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…004


And the rest depends on your budget
Apologies for the thick question, but would this support a 2700X? (I assume if it did I would have to first use a donor processor and upgrade the BIOS on it of course)
Does anyone know if it supports all Ryzen chips out of the box? ie even the XXXXG APUs?

Pretty sure newer stock will have newer bios flashed already. You can always ask the merchant.

Physically yes it will take all Ryzen processors. However depending on whether the retailer is on the ball or stock age, if it is updated to a recent enough Bios or not then it may not.
AMD will loan out an older AM4 processor to do an update if required. Bit of a hassle if you ask me.
Why am I soo skint!
Damn you 4k TVs , damn you steam sale! Damn youuuu hotdeals!
i have b350 version of this board, it is a trash when I first got it back in Dec 2017. Memory support is a joke, the board takes 20 seconds to post. But they rolled out a few bios updates, now it is smooth like a butter and auto OC profile works great. save a lot hassle to mannually OC yourself.

Yeah, there are loads of caveats, too. I caved and just bought a £40 cheapie CPU to do the update.
Any idea if this ships ready for Ryzen 2200g , i really dont want to have to go through the AMD update process to update the bios
Would this be a good choice to start for a new build?

would a 1200 or 2200 be better considering price and on a budget?

(last build I done was a socket 775 all those years ago

It will probably depend on the bios version that the board is shipped with
Mine arrived yesterday & put it together last night but it will not post. CPU LED is on so I assume it's the BIOS needs updating. Have sent AMD a request for boot kit will see what happens.
Got boot kit off AMD and flashed to latest BIOS and all up and running. If you thinking of ordering Ebuyer will flash to latest version at no extra cost if you send them a request.
I got mine today, on the box it actually says 'AMD Ryzen 2000 ready' so I'm guessing it is from a later batch and will already have a compatible BIOS flashed on it?

P.S. I know Ebuyer and Yodel get some hate on here, but placed the order at 11pm Wednesday with the free delivery option, delivered this morning (Saturday) at 12pm...can't grumble at that!
