from completed build Another B&W Build which turned out B&Red
Should have gone with the carbon version but only because of aesthetics. Performance wise it does very well!

from completed build Ryzen from i5-3570k
Great motherboard after updating to the latest BIOS. Looks good, feels premium and was super cheap when on sale at Newegg.
Got to 3.7 GHz without a problem with the Ryzen 1700. Took at star off because I can't clock my ram past 2133 without BSOD error even though its rated 2400.
EDIT: The mobo comes with red LEDs on the heatsink and along the edges. It is NOT RBG like its bigger brother the Gaming Pro Carbon.

from completed build Red and Black Beast- My First Build!
A very wholesome board, has everything you need and more. Love the red led backlighting and accents. The audio is crisp and sounds like heaven. Wouldn't change a thing!

from completed build My first build came out earlier than I thought
It was an overkill after all, so it kinda gave me a blow when I realized that it only had one M.2 slot, unlike the Gaming Pro Carbon which has two... Again, I could only blame myself. Anyways, the M.2 slot comes with a heat shield, which is always a good thing I think.
And, I have to say that after updating drivers and checking carefully, I think the gifted PCI-E WiFi adapter is Malfunctioning. Darn. I mean, it can't be that all my PCI-E x1 slots on this MoBo are malfunctioning, right? The adapter is a custom part so I can't review that, so I'll just do it here. Bluetooth is working, but WiFi is not. Assuming that it's not my PCI-E slot, the only thing I can think of is that the chip is working but the PCI-E part of the expansion card is malfunctioning. I'll try debugging a bit more before I send it back. If it turns to be my PCI-E slot that's the culprit here?... I'll probably ban MSI for a long period of time.
I have to say that this MoBo couldn't run my RAM at rated frequency. That's really upsetting. Although from a performance point of view that doesn't really matter cuz I can still go up to 2800 at least, it's just annoying. Come on, it's an X370 MoBo, man...
-------------------------------------Update 02.14.2018 ---------------------------
After the recent bios update, my RAM finally runs at 3200MHz. So far it's stable without a problem so that's nice.
Some minor flaws after the update that I've noticed: 1. Task Manager stopped reporting correct CPU clock speed. My multiplier is set to 37.00, and in the task manager the real time speed shows 4.2GHz which is BS. CPU-Z still works fine. I heard that the new Ryzen APUs had issues with Windows timer, so I guess my issue (with a old Ryzen) is more likely to be a software issue that's gonna be fixed in future updates (if any).
- My CPU temp still went higher... Guess it's because of RAM oc... might need to tweak a bit when I have the time to

from completed build 191129 The Green Red Show
Got this used, it was ready for the Ryzen & didn't give me any headaches with CrossFire.
