Nice review and findings.
This board wasn't available when I was in the market to buy my current system, but this makes me wish I would have waited. I have a lot of things that I dislike about this board, but the main two things that have gotten me to develop quite a strong contempt for this board is the severe vDROOP and how hot the VRMs get. I'm currently stuck at 3.8GHz because my board cannot handle much more than that when I am stressing the overclock. To see that people are running their RYZEN 7 CPUs at 4GHz with the VRMs not exceeding 60C is giving me some serious envy.
This gives me hope that some mid to high range options are finally coming to Micro ATX with the AM4 platform. I'll be on the lookout for TUF boards with the 400 and the 500 series of AMD Promontory.
