kob4y says:

I just wish there is a b350 board with no problems what so ever, and with neutral color. I don’t need any red any leds I just want a solid board with good looks and no gaudy color

YellowPeaches says:

Plz look in the Camera 😀 good video tho

Zlothra says:

Matthias Wong says:

Terry1212 says:

Just AJoX says:

MaxMental_17 says:

Hate gigabyte boards

Daniel Contreras says:

I know what I want. As for when it’ll be available, who the f*** knows?! (MSI b350m mortar)

Michael Lazarus says:

It’s pretty simple really, if you are not overclocking pick the best features and warranty. if your overclocking pick the board with superior VRMs and power delivery. With established products pay attention to reviews. AM4- ASUS Hero VI hands down, budget ASrock, mid/workstation a Ultra Durable Gigabyte board. And picking a board for overclocking is about much more than the MHz you achieve, it’s also about increasing efficiency. For example increasing latency and temperatures with a too high OC performs worse than a reasonable OC with lower voltages and matched/tuned BUS.

GenesisGems says:

So I wanted the ASUS X370 but I heard that it didn’t come with a wifi adapter or something? I’m not super familiar with pc upgrading so I wanted to know what I should do, buy a new motherboard with wifi capabilities or buy an aditional part that enables wifi

Trufasa X says:

Is this guy playing life in Big Head Mode?

Fiveoh Four says:

thanks for the breakdown, if you have a moment i have a question, you say that you suggest not buying the more expensive x370 boards because you see little to suggest the more expensive ones overclock better, is that actually the selling point for the pricier boards, that seems crazy to me? is it that they come with auto overclocking features or something that makes it easier? I figured the pricier boards just came with more PCIE lanes or something along those lines i guess

Harshal Thakkar says:

Hey buddy nice review..subscribed . Quick question… Planning to build a pc specifically for setting up virtual machines using hyper v for doing testing work related stuff and some photoshop editing…. I was planning to go with ryzen 7 1700 and x370 asus… Would ryzen 5 1600 work with the b350?

Brendan Collins says:

What motherboard do you recommend?

Birki gts says:

What board should you buy? Look at what boards have enough expandability for you, after that, choose the one that supports the fastest ram in decent quantity within reasonable price. Most manufacturers have supported memory lists on their support pages. With ryzen fast ram is everything.

CobaltFox Plays... says:

I’ll deciding between Gigabyte GA-AB350-GAMING 3 ATX and ASUS Prime B350 Plus ATX. It’s more for productivity then gaming; ToonBoom Harmony and Adobe software etc.

Gole says:

MSI B350M Bazooka any1 using this one?

Christian Perez says:

I’m on a bit of a budget… is the Gigabyte B350 Tomahawk a smart and safe investment?

Hail Kira says:

I am still waiting for my MSI X370 Carbon Pro that I ordered with my ryzen cpu weeks ago. 🙁

robert says:

silly question, is Ryzen 1700x or 1700 systems stable? yes, i would overclock those to 4 ghz. power supply = 750 watts. not sure on memory speed yet (maybe 3200-3600). m-atx motherboard. Thanks!

hugo bueno says:

Don’t go with the micro atx board because it will get hotter and lesser expandability .. ABSURD!! and FUNNY!! Those that want a mini itx are ……… Sorry those that want a mini itx board!! lol

bbmatias22 says:
