yeah.. AM4 products been a bit rushed so all boards have problems...even Asus Hero gets bricked. But hey, here is cheaper than ebay (some x370 Pro Carbon going for 120-150+ at the moment!) , and once you sell the Hue and Led strip, you are down to about 115-120 or so...with receipt and full warranty. So in case it gets bricked, RMA
Also, AMD board makers supposed to release some big update this month, mainly aimed at resolving memory compatibility issues

cheers for that, i have the 1700 for my lad but bit iffy on buying yet or waiting for it all to be resolved, theres always issues to start with, intel had their fair share too

Heat

Gah I went ahead and spent the money I had just so I wont miss out. Now I just have to hope I get my £900 next week for the rest of my build.

Also on the Intel Z270 version too, if you prefer that. If this was on ITX I would be tempted to upgrade my i5 2500k build (not that I need to, it's still going strong)

seems to be MSI promo on all Pro Carbon boards....X99A is also included, albeit without the LED strip

Thanks, cancelled an Amazon order for intel version at £5 less and ordered this for the free accessories

got my Corsair vengeance led ram running at 3200 MHz with my 1600 on 1.35V 3.8GHz, Asus prime x370 pro

I wish I got this instead for all the accessories

Don't worry, only issues are high freq ram support (anyway till new bios you can use them at 2400mhz (I can use mine corsair 3200 led at 2933, no problems)) and longer boot times than.
No bricket mbs with new bioses

Not a bad kit!

Just beware of the BIOS at least for now. It's absolute trash from MSI.

Good deal and thanks for the post. Was looking for something like this as the AMD mobos don't have such good freebies or promotions as the Intel Z270s. Now let's hope all the kit actually works properly when I get it... bit uneasy about being a Ryzen early adopter after years of very stable Intel kit.

Gutted paid £179 around a month back.

Do you actually own this board? i do and have done for a while and its a very good board theirs nothing wrong with the Bios at all i suggest you dont talk about stuff you know nothing about and that video shows a Asrock bios and i know for a fact that Asrocks X370 motherboards are some of the best AM4 boards they seem to play nice with lots of ram kits. Theres also going to be some new Bios for all boards as theres some new code thats going to sort a lot of the ram issues out.

This is a great price. A shame as I'm looking for a white mobo and they don't offer the Hue+ with the Titanium.

If anyone wants to flog their Hue+ I'm all ears

​I read something about that. Knowing my luck I would buy into an AMD system to only find the week after a second revision of some boards due to some issues only being resolved ideally through hardware changes than software. You can often see that with Gigabyte boards, if the chipset lasts long enough.

RGB is the next best thing to overclocking, just like putting GT stripes on your car to make it go faster lol

Thanks. Took the plunge and ordered this. First step in my upgrade complete. Now for the CPU.

160 for not even the highest end mobo what have we come to

Well said..in fact lookie here at RYZEN 7 OVERCLOCK LEADER BOARD
link in 1st post here http://www.overclock.net/t/1624139/official-ryzen-7-1800x-1700x-1700-owners-club-4ghz-club

Quite a few of top overclocks were done on X370 Pro Carbon

AM4 motherboards suck so hard. Faaaaaaaaaar too many bios and RAM issues. Really need sorting, it's been over 2 months since launch and most vendors are still fumbling over updates and compatibility. Dual bios FTW on enthusiast boards

This is an almost identical board (compare the specs on the msi site) and also can be used for the for honor game, so if you dont care about the hue light thing its a really good deal @ £131.48

Good deal but brick your bios and e-buyer wont want to know.
Horrible company.

hmm yeah, but shouldn't you RMA directly with MSI anyway ? i..e and all they will need is an eBuyer receipt ?

Only problem is MSI are no longer allowing you to redeem for honor. Apparently ran out of keys which sucks.

Let's see...

1. Applying overclock changes is tedious and often inaccurate, failing to apply the settings until the system is restarted.
2. Memory training period is incredibly unstable and can cause POST failures with an sort of overclock - leading to the symptoms of #1
3. There are roumers that the VRMs used are cheaper than competitors. i can't confirm this one, but based on a fairly poor ceiling on the CPU I am using there may be some truth to it.
4. Voltage drop and LLC are difficult to judge, mostly due to poor descriptions on the bios

I feel that if you pay £160-180 for a component that doesn't work as you expect, you have the right to complain. Furthermore without this critical feedback how can the manufacturer be held accountable for future updates etc?

I am curious as to what you are doing with your board for it to be working fine. Chances are you have memory running well below it's indicated max speeds at the least or you would have encountered some of the frustrations I mention above.

Ryzen is apparently working well with Samsung B-die DDR4 memory, so for the best chance of achieving high ram speeds, it's recommended to go with tested RAM.

How long did it take for you guys to receive the game code from MSI?

You have to redeem it using their site. Once you do that and finish the process, it should display on a webpage.
