- Board works with F4-3200C14D-16GTZKW RAM at the full speed. (QVL verified and from advise of one of the reviewers here) although, needs current version of bios to work.
- Just enough USB slots for what I need. Can always use a hub or something, but why pay double for a flashy board just for a few more.
- PS/2 port which made installing Win-7 easier. Background: Win7 will not recognize USB until drivers are installed so without a mouse/keyboard, you don't have any input until you do so. PS/2 will work for that purpose. My guess is MS is making it difficult for people since they want to continue pushing their ad/spyware infested windows 10.
- All drivers worked. No need to do lengthy troubleshooting and searching for others not on the disc.
- Clear instructions on hooking everything up.
- Plenty of room to install Noctura DH14 + mod kit CPU cooler.
- BIOS update to latest version without trouble.
- 6 SATA ports. Usually seen only 2 or 4 unless you got a higher end board with 6 or 8. Maybe times are changing.
- Stock bios version was over 6 months old. Required updating to use RAM to full potential. I think they should at least ship with a current bios as I don't think it sat in the warehouse 6 months. Minor issue, and easily remedied, though.
- Takes a long time to POST. That was like my 990FX board, although this wasn't as bad. I don't know if there's a "fast boot" option or setting that mitigates this. This is also minor as I usually leave it on.
- USB 2.0 ports not working right with VMWare. Problem is some devices don't get recognized and can't connect them to VM. Still working on a fix for that.
- No optical audio out. I was used to this being standard on more expensive Asus boards, however I didn't see spending double to get it. I didn't even bother to look, which was foolish, however, the onboard audio still works satisfactorily.
- Too few cables/accessories included for full build. Probably standard for knocking 100 bucks off the price. I re-purposed the others, but others may want to know, it only comes with 2 SATA cables and no USB front/back plates.
- Clocking/tweaking unclear and not covered in instructions. I matched my ram to 14/14/14/34 with the "try it" mode, however it sets the voltage at 1.36 instead of 1.35 and I can't change it. I have excellent cooling so I tried and ran MEMTEST with no errors and it's been solid for a while. CPU clocking ("Game mode?") is vague. I turned it on/off without noticing a difference. The 1800x is already lightning fast and at 3700mhz right now. I would opt for more of an "energy saver" mode as I like a quiet PC that runs cool.
- Boot device priority unclear. I can't pick a specific device, only the type. Still got it working fairly quickly with default settings.
- Garbageware on the drivers CD. This seems to be typical with many brands/boards. I don't want some "audio control center" tray icon and several others. I just want the simple driver, please.
- Never tinkered with RGB lighting. Don't care for it. I know some people had trouble, but even if so, doesn't bother me.
- Good board to buy for a Ryzen build.
- Will work with Win/7 as long as you follow the guides commonly posted for ps/2. No need to slip-stream stuff like with ones with no port.
- To update bios, the folder structure from unzipping the file needs to be intact or it won't recognize it. Something that troubled me for a while, I figured I'd save someone the trouble who is reading this. e.g.: X:\biosversionfolder\bios.file instead of X:\bios.file (Don't update the bios unless you are having specific issues and it fixes that specific problem)
- CPU runs 36 degrees idle, 54 under full load with Noctura cooler and default fan settings and default CPU settings. (Probably plenty of room to overclock for those who wish to) No slot for second CPU fan, however one is labeled "pump fan". I'm guessing for water coolers. It's just a re-labeled chassis fan slot so I used it for one of the CPU fans.
- Superfluous hdmi/DVI ports on MB. Obviously it would be a huge waste to buy this MB for "gaming" without a hardware graphics card. Nobody is going to use these, right? What's the point here?
Update: have had this for a while now, tried 2 different processors and 3 sets of ram. Always seems to have ram issues, haven't gotten one set to boot at rated speeds...... Not even flareX! I've had to settle for running my 3200 cl14 at 2800 cl16. Doesn't matter what ram or processor that's as fast as it will boot with.
Update 2: After the Agesa 22.214.171.124 bios update both cpu and ram speeds are much improved. I was able to get 2933mhz with 4 sticks installed, and my 1700x @4.0ghz without raising from stock voltage. Ram is still not at rated speeds, but I was still able to get latency down a fair amount from the rated numbers. So I guess this board has got a little bit of the fine wine syndrome going on. But MSI has greatly improved it with the last bios update. Still boots like a tortoise compared to my last couple boards though.
It's attractive for sure. Everything is in place and neat.
Packaging is superb.
Everything works with no fiddling.
I had never updated a BIOS before, but on this board it's almost too easy. Just put the update file on a USB drive and it'll handle the rest.
Memory overclocking was easy as well. Just select the XMP profile and it works.
The English in the BIOS is pretty poor.
Some parts of the BIOS aren't designed well. i.e. A caveman can't use this out of the box. Spending some time in the BIOS and reading the user manual helps a lot.
Final thoughts, ramblings:
This board is worth every cent. I'm satisfied with the product I got for what I paid and will recommend it to anyone wanting an ATX X370 board.
Pros : Looks amazing, OC is easy,
Cons : need to update bios with another computer right away bc it's runs the CPU at 68c once bios update it runs in 40c
No msi slickers
You get a lot for our money with this x370 vs the other x370 boards that cost more or cost less they didn't cheap out and audio is gold plated 2 m.2 slots
