I mean it's not a big deal really. It's not like you'd get the most out of it with that chipset as those boards are barebones and wouldn't overclock great anyway since I believe virtually all 320 boards lack heatsinks.

This is basically the right logic. The biggest problem I have with the old 320 boards is that they cost around $60 or so... a b350 costs $70-80.

It's just never made sense to go for the barebone setup when a better version of it exists within the b350, i don't know to me it felt like the 320 boards were a bit of time waster to even consider.

I'm not surprised my motherboard is on the list, but I still might upgrade. If ASUS can give me a fully functional BIOS for the new CPUs (which I doubt), I might stick with my current motherboard as it has most of what I need. It has very limited m.2 SSD support and I want to move to m.2 storage to clean up my system's cabling as much as possible, but that''s not a deal breaker.

Asus has not been fantastic for supporting their older stuff, so I suspect I'll be buying a Crosshair 8 to go along with my 7 and 6. I sure would love a drop in upgrade though, or two!

When it comes to motherboards Asus just cannot be beat in anything really. Only boards I buy now.

It sounds to me like they're playing it safe. I was doubtful that low end cheap boards could have the VRMs to power 16 cores.

At least they're not risking it like some did with bulldozer, only to see low end boards catch fire because they were designed for quad core Phenom 2.
