This is to re-test after the bios updates, If you don't want it then don't update your bios.

Good review. A retest may not have been necessary, but it's appreciated. It was a good read.

I worked on my Ryzen 1700X system for about two weeks when it was brand new. It was a PITA to have to mess with it, but once the newest BIOS was released, I got 3.99GHz. CPU and 2988MHz RAM speed with my Crosshair VI board.

Then, I buttoned it up and have been using it like that ever since. It's rock solid and completely stable too.

I like it so much that I just bought a Ryzen 1600 and an ASUS Strix B350-F Gaming setup to upgrade my wife's PC. It will be set to run at stock speeds with a GTX-980Ti inside.

Tom have you done a review on the Asus B350-F Strix, I have searched high and low and am unable to find anything.

This is a good overview of most all AM4 motherboards.

AFAIK the board you are looking into is probably the best all around B350 board. Also pretty much the most expensive.

Rob, I have that board and it works fine. I used a 32GB kit of Kingston HyperX 2400MHz RAM in it and it automagically set it to the proper speed right out of the box.
The RGB effects are working right as well.

I had ordered a Ryzen 1600 CPU to use in it, but I ended up with a Ryzen-5 1500X instead. (long story)
While performance is good, it isn't what I was looking for. It's not the fault of the board though. I'm tempted to put my 1700X in there to see how that goes.

Performance is pretty good as long as you plan to run at stock, or close to stock speeds with it. It looks good with the black PCB and brushed grey metal heatsinks too.
It just works out of the box, without troubles.

Cheers buddy, I intend to pair it with a 1600 and 16gb 3200 ram with a modest oc only
most the boards are eithe matx which I dont like or garishly red coloured so need either a board with some blue in it or a neutral/black look
