I have this mobo. In fact I already posted this deal when it was Prime only a few weeks ago. It's a very nice bit of kit.

I have this board - not the best, has bad VRM for a x370 mobo and poor bios with fewer options than competitors. This is a deal but also in a sort of "you get what you pay for" kind of way. I got this board for £85 two months ago from amazon warehouse like new.

No end of trouble wished I'd never bought it and I paid £179.99 at launch and it still has ram issues now beeping at boot with ram set at 2933mhz. I bought myself a nvme drive and with it in slot 2 everytime the computer entered sleep the drive would disappear at wake, pretty lights are smoke and mirrors to hide the endless issues. Buyers check the forums for this board and you will see what rubbish it is, this was my first MSI board in the nearly 20 years I've been building my own rigs I've always had asus and this confirmed why, I never had any trouble with them. I will be going back to a asus board with a i7 this board and cpu have left a real bad taste in my mouth.

I guess I'll look for an Asus then.
I have the cut down version (X370 Pro Gaming, same VRM but lacking RGB lighting and the second M.2 slot) and it's been pretty solid. No trouble maintaining a 3.95GHz/1.4V overclock on an eight core, with RAM at 3200MHz and manually tightened secondary/tertiary timings. It certainly isn't perfect - MSI are the only manufacturer yet to implement voltage offsets or p-state overclocking - but I paid £88 brand new from Alza about six weeks back, and for the money it does everything that can be expected.

I'll show you mine, if you like.
i have this mobo as well, its not the best for overclocking. Checkout the thread on Overclock.net for more info.
Don't get the ASUS Strix, slow boot and poor memory compatibility.

Areyou talking about the B350-F or X370 version? What other choices does anyone have
Edited by: "icecreamwoman" 8th Dec 2017
Did a lot of research before buying and the forums are full of issues for each manufacturer to be honest . My only issues were the audio drivers causing low fps and stuttering. Reinstallation sorted everything. I've only overclocked mine to 3.6Ghz using the Auto setting for voltage so it still scales the voltage according to load. My 1700 uses only 1.18v on load and the stock cooler keeps temps at 60 degrees C and quiet. 38 degrees C when idle and silent. Memory just worked and I can take my 2400 G.Skill Flare X to 2933mhz at 1.35V. For the money I think it's great. But maybe my requirements are less than those of others.

Did you install windows before or after setting the SATA mode as RAID?

I had this problem because I installed windows whilst the bios setting was still on AHCI.

Back to the board however, would you guys not recommend this then for a budget/mid level Ryzen rig?

I've not delved into Ryzen yet so just looking for a solid board that doesn't cost a lot.

I think it's a good board. The only two things I would change is to add the option for voltage offset in the UEFI, and move the top M.2 away from under the GPU. My SM961 can get pretty 🔥. Oh and if it matters to you the rear IO RGB LED are hidden by a rear exhaust fan if fitted.
Will never buy MSI gaming board again, poor quality control
any good motherboard in market? i mean 5 stars in all aspect
Love my Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3. Nice everyday OC of 3.9ghz ram at 3200cl14
