MSI B350M Mortar - is the best mATX AM4 board ?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
The B350m Mortar from MSI is the best mATX motherboard for Ryzen ?
Anyone own it and can give me some feedback about ? Specially the cons.

It would be nice to know cuz I'm trying to decide between the Mortar and the ASRock AB350M Pro4. One thing I do like about the ASRock is that is has dual M.2 slots. To be honest, I'm leaning more closer to the Pro4 thinking.gif

I think MSI definitely doesn't have P-state overclocking with this board.

You have to run your CPU overclocked all the time.

I don't own it but there's several things I noticed with the Mortar: no USB 3.1 Gen 2 and a cheaper ALC892 audio solution compared to full size ATX MSI B350 Pro Carbon & Gigabyte B350 Gaming 3.

The MSI B350 Pro Carbon also has Intel LAN.

If you aren't in a hurry to build I would wait for more mATX and ITX boards to show up on the market.

I've not had good luck with version 1.2 of the BIOS. I ended up rolling back to version 1.1. That said, I haven't had the RAM issues that seemed to plague a lot of boards.

Without problems ?

What kind of issues have you found with 1.2 bios ?
