Helpful tips below for new Ryzen builders on this board
#1 If using dual channel Ram/Memory always install in the 2nd and 4th slots "from left to right"
#2 For those wanting to install an upgraded version of Windows 10 "Originally upgraded from Windows 7/Windows 8/8.1" You don't need to install the previous version of windows 7 or 8 to upgrade any longer, Microsoft has now made it easy to install Windows 10 direct and using your windows 7 or 8 product key to activate your Windows 10 directly. Install Windows 10 without a product key and when windows loads go to Windows properties/System Information page and Activate while connected to the internet and It should allow you to Activate.
#3 Buy some mounting screws to mount the board to the case as this board doesn't come with any needed hardware "At least mine didn't come shipped with the mounting screws as many other reviews stated"
#4 I am using Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15 Desktop Memory Kit - Black (CMK16GX4M2B3000C15) On this board. I had to go into bios after installation of Windows and turn on XMP Profile 2. Ram/Memory was set at 2133MHz stock, After setting XMP Profile 2 then saving and restarting the Ram/Memory then was set at 2933MHz "Yours may be different"
Pros: The instruction manual was great with pictures to follow (Do Read the instruction manual)
Cons: Mounting screws not provided, I am very upset I got this board and ready to install into the case and there were no mounting screws provided, I am lucky I had enough from a previous build already on hand.
Really just a giant mess on MSI's part.
I ordered this board early before Ryzen 3000 was released (which was good because prices have gone up) but now I only have 6 days to return this board.
If MSI releases a working BIOS update in the next few days I will update this review, but otherwise I'm returning this and looking at ASUS or Gigabyte.
I've had a 2012 AMD Sapphire GPU build sitting around collecting dust and finally decided in the past month to upgrade the damn thing.
It's up and running with a new SSD and I'm very pleased with it. My ONLY real criticism with this board is that it, along with a few other MSI boards, requires you to install the CPU fan BEFORE you screw the mobo to the case. There's a backplate underneath the board and if you try to do it the other way around, it will shift and then you'll be like "Why don't these screws on the CPU fan reach their respective holes?"
As weird as it is, install the CPU and the fan first, then screw the board to your case. Other than that little oddity, it's smooth sailing if you follow the manual.
Aida64 for an hr at 67c.
-It also OC'd my Trident Z RGB to 3200 nicely using A-XMP.
-BIOS is easy to use and easy to OC.
-Mystic Light is nice! Using ML software you CAN change the built-in board LEDs to different colors. Not just red. They
are NOT, however, individually addressable LEDs. Board LEDs and both top and bottom RGB headers work in unison.
-Mystic Light features:
Breathing Color Cycle
Flashing Color Cycle
Breathing (Choose color including White)
Flashing (Choose color including White)
Double Flashing (Choose color including White)
-Sexy neutral gunmetal gray sinks

I bought the Tomahawk along with a Ryzen 5 2600. In terms of the aesthetics, it has a grey/black theme that is subtle and works well with most builds. The ports are positioned nicely and the built in RGB gives it a nice little flair. Mounting a cooler is easy and it is a durable motherboard that can easily support heavier GPUs. Prior to my 1060 6GB, I had two TriX R9 280X (long graphics cards) and they barely sagged. The click bios is easy to work with and loaded with options - setting my ram to 3000Mhz and OCing my CPU to 4.0Ghz was easy. One thing to keep in mind for newer builders is that the RGB headers are 4pin. Some people had issues with a poor integrated sound card but as someone who does pay attention to mids, lows, highs and appreciated bass, it’s quite clear and the music quality is good. If you are a serious audiophile, then a dedicated sound card may be worth the upgrade to you.
Motherboard turned up with all my other parts for a massive upgrade from a AMD 9370 system to a ryzen 3600 system and i was so excited
got home and open my CPU Power supply and ram all looked amazing and fresh like brand new stock
and then i opened the motherboard..... the amazon box was perfect no damage but the motherboard box itself looked attacked one side was completely crumpled and the top had been pushed in with an obvious imprint in the bends that looked like a foot the insides of the box were full of dents where pins and ram slots and the heatsinks had pushed into the packaging and sadly the Chipset Heatsink at the bottom had snapped off on the bottom pin and was no longer making contact with the chipset i was furious and just stunned
thankfully the pin and spring was still in the anti static bag but the pin was snapped in half LUCKILY LUCKILY I am experienced with PC repairs and checks so i super glued the pin together push it through the spring and back through the heatsink and it clipped back in fine through the other side of the motherboard the motherboard was also bent down the middle it was obvious it was warped from the pressure
i was one of the lucky ones and the motherboard works perfectly fine Ram is all detected and everything is stable and powered but whoever worked in the storage depot that this board was in needs firing for being so careless by sending a damaged unchecked product to a paying customer
This review is not targeted at Amazon or MSI simply aimed at wherever this Board was stored as i easily could've been a disappointed dad excited to build their child their first PC or a teenager who finally saved up for their dream build and was Crushed by the disappointment of Amazon returns and waiting potentially 2 weeks for either a Refund or a replacement if i was unable to repair this
BUT the positives are this board overclocks very well managed to achieve 4.0 GHZ on my ryzen 3600 and boost the ram to 3200mhz and runs like a dream just goes to show MSI make sturdy boards if they can run this well after being stepped on
I had no issues with the xmp setting for my Corsair vengeance ram 3000mhz.
The bios was great to work with as again it was my first time working with a bios for the purposes of light overclocking.
Overclocking the ryzen 2400g was tedious. How ever with patience and some googling I have it comfortablly sitting at auto voltage 3.7 ghz boosting to 3.9 GHz and 1340mhz on the GPU side with my voltage at 1.175.
Packaging was excellent. Instructions were very clear. All in all an excellent first build with this mother board.
The only issue I did have was finding information on this board and guides.the b450 must be a fairly recent release. However it shares alot of similarities with the b350 tomahawk which made troubleshooting my minor overclocking issuses easier.
- Se tarda 3 o 5 minutos para iniciar la computadora en el menu del BIOS
- A veces se queda prendido el foco rojo del CPU y tengo que apagarla y volverla a prender
La ventaja es la facil instalación y actualizacion del BIOS en caso de no contar con un procesador compatible, una vez que inicias el sistema responde como debería.
Yo les recomendaria irse por una tarjeta madre x570 para los nuevos Ryzen, para evitarse problemas, por que los BIOS actualizados tienen problemas
J'ai reçu la carte maitresse avec un défaut au niveau du son. Même avec le son au max avec les haut-parleurs à plein pouvoir, je n'avais qu'un son "normal". J'ai du configurer manuellement ma mémoire de 16go 3000mhz malgré le fait que la carte peut prendre jusqu'à 64go 3200mhz. Les connecteurs usb sont chaotique et fonctionnent par intermittence, des fois ne pouvant que charger mes appareils. Je n'ai pas envie de me rendre la vie dure pour retourner la carte, je ne veux pas me retrouver plusieurs jours sans ordinateur. MSI: plus jamais.
