AMD Ryzen Motherboard Thread - Page 305

post #3041 of 3047
The Biostar mITX board is listed on newegg now as an auto-notify, X370 chip, not sure the reasoning behind using the x370 on an mITX board though, since there is only one PCI-E slot.

Ryzen 7 1700
EVGA 2x8GB DDR4-3000
Samsung 960 EVO 256GB
EVGA 550W G2
NZXT S340
RX460 (laying around at home)

I'm looking for a decent B350 board thats ATX/mATX from Micro Center. Nothing fancy needed. Here's what I'm choosing from:

ASRock AB350M Pro4
Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming
ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS
ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4
MSI B350 TOMAHAWK

i just need it to work and be stable. Might overclock at some point down the line. I'm leaning towards the MSI B350 Tomahawk based on features but would love to hear your thoughts.

I have the Gigabyte GA-AB350M-Gaming 3 and it works well, the CPU VCORE VRM does get a bit warm with folding@home CPU only I get up to 74C with GPU at idle, and 82-83C with GPU and CPU running Folding@Home room ambient is 25.5C, This is at stock settings on an 1800X

With Memory I'm only stable at 2133 MHZ due to my ram not being on the QVL

Airflow over the VRM is imperative if you plan on doing any overclock, In my Node 804 case just adding two exhaust fans to the top of the case dropped my VRM temps by 15C

I will say the BIOS is limited in function for overclock, offset voltage increases for VCORE and SOC are the only options I've seen so far.

Most probably bdie and a check or flash of xmp subtimings to match known compatible ryzen preferences. Time to market suggests they did not go in for a big deep dive into research. No jdecc at all.

I just ordered the AsRock Gamer K4 off ebay for 147. I'll post some feedback on it once I get it.

Depends on the features I want out of a build. I find myself counting fan headers as a feature worthy of attention. The lane management varies from board to board and the nvme can, regrettably, share it's lanes. This can impact your 960 Evo's performance. Sometimes the marketing is clear. Unfortunately it is sometimes vague.

The X370 chipset is not only just there to have SLI capabilities over other chipsets. X370 has more SATA and USB 3.0 availability. Even X300 is still more limited in that notion than X370. Then again, it depends on the mITX board and its layout.

Ahh that would explain it, I took a closer look at the specs and it has quite a bit of USB 3.0 capability 4x 3.1 Gen 1 and 2x 3.1 gen 2 ports one is type C and the other is Type A I think it is and that is just on the rear IO.

It will be interesting to see what components they used on its VRM, based on the pictures assuming the Chokes represent the number of phases it appears to be a 4+3 Phase.
