Best mATX board they had at Microcenter at the time of purchase. Got $50 off with the 1700X bundled. The board looks great, performs well, and I'm pretty happy with the improvements MSI has made with the new BIOS versions released. Looking forward to more improvements (like getting my RAM from 2666 to 2933) but everything has been great so far! Might knock a star if there isn't any improvement to the BIOS in the next 6 months or so. But for now I have no room to complain!

from completed build Zenbox - Budget RYZEN 5 Build
It was the cheapest RYZEN board available at the time I built my budget R5 system - That said, nothing about this board feels "budget" - It has an M.2 slot, it has a killer colour theme that's just the perfect balance of eye-catching and subdued, it has LEDs along the edge which are again perfectly subdued, and it has the PCIex16 slot as the SECOND expansion slot, instead of the first, which - - - You have no idea how useful that it!!
Only disappointments are: only 2 case fan headers aside from the CPU header (would have liked to see 3) and only 2 RAM slots (but whatever, it's enough if you plan for it).

BIOS is easy to use, looks awesome, and the cheapest motherboard from our parametric filter. It only has 2 fan headers and 2 ram slots, which honestly it should have 4 of both.

Buying this just to fit the theme of the rig. Enough 2x for RAM slot for gaming. Thats it.

from completed build Ryzen 5 2600X + RX Vega 56 Gaming Build (£1000)
A decent and Cheap AM4 Motherboard, as its a 350m model there are newer and better revisions and boards, but for the time (at Ryzen Release) this did it's job pretty well and even has troubleshoot LEDs to warn you if there is a issue with your Ram/GPU/HDD!

from completed build Raijintek Styx + Ryzen
One of the few AM4 mATX boards around when I bought. No real complaints, it has a really premium feel and (most importantly) many shiny red LEDs. I would love to see another fan header, but it's fine.
Setup was a little bumpy. Had a bit of trouble posting with both sticks of ram in place. A-XMP didn't work for me, but I chalk that up to this being a newer piece of hardware. I could only get my ram up to 2667Mhz. (Though I briefly got it up to 2933 with just a single stick in place.) MSI assures me that future BIOS updates should address this.

Overall great, but would be a lot better if it could handle more fans. Am waiting on a four-pin splitter to complete the fan setup.
