ASUS AM4 X370-F and B350-F Strix pictured

It looks like ASUS has AM4 Strix series motherboards on the way with the B350-F and the X370-F.



Read more on ASUS' AM4 Strix motherboards.

Still prefer the CH6, but then I have to say this after shelling out for one.

Much better aesthetic in comparison to the Pro, can see this being a big seller for AM4 builds.

Found them on CCL's website:

X370
https://www.cclonline.com/product/23...board/MBD2163/

B350
https://www.cclonline.com/product/23...board/MBD2162/

The B350 is less than £120 listed, which for a Strix board is unbelievable. And the X370 is just over £180. I'm honestly thinking of giving my MSI board the boot if my RAM doesn't work well after the next AGESA update

It is a low price for a Strix board, but put that price into context and it is the most expensive B350 board on the market:P

I like the MSI Carbon Pro look the best still. I'd say this is tied with the CH6. Though if I had to choose, i'd probably choose the Strix 370 over the MSI board, simply because Asus has tends to have the best BIOS options.

MSI Arctic are still my faves. That Strix board is gorgeous, but man that white and grey combo just does something to me

The b350 comes with 6 satas thats a good thing. But still, those who love nvidia will buy a x370 mobo. I think also MSI have 6 satas on their b350 lineup.

Yes! I was waiting to see if ASUS released the Strix version. The CH6 and Taichi are just too expensive right now and I've read some are having issues with MSI's Carbon Pro. Gigabyte's boards are nice, but the layout might conflict with the cooler I have in mind. I don't like that the front panel USB header is at the bottom on the Strix, but I think I could make it work.

Me too and tbh I'm a little bit cross about it. Why not have these boards ready at launch? I dunno man, seems like it was planned. "Here have these more expensive boards first".

I'm probably wrong but I wish these would have come at launch. There's every possibility I would have made my mind up in favour and would be sitting here with a 1700 powered rig.

Yeah, it's weird. Maybe they wanted to stagger their releases for quality control purposes. Or maybe they felt like Ryzen needed to be proven as a platform before releasing multiple iterations. Or maybe they would struggle to have boards in stock. It's not that big of a deal for me because I was always going to wait for Ryzen 5, but if you were set on being an early adopter of Ryzen 7 then choice wasn't great. For me I'll probably wait for a few reviews for the Strix to come out, then maybe start my build. That should be around the time of Vega as well.
