Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. We recommend double-checking all power connectors are fully seated. This includes the 24-pin Motherboard power connector and the 4+4-pin CPU power connector. Once you have ensured that the connectors are fully seated, we recommend booting with a bare configuration, which means only the CPU, motherboard, power connectors, and a single stick of RAM. If this does not work, we would advise testing the power supply using either the "Paper Clip Test" or testing it on a secondary PC. Lastly, you can also attempt to build the motherboard outside of the case to prevent any potential grounding issues. If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you. If you require further technical assistance, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Standard Time.

Thanks for choosing MSI!

MSI Carbon Pro AC

Pros: Runs out of box with 2000 series Ryzen, Nice appearance, clean bios design. Good board for entry or mid level build with lots of features. See other thoughts.

Cons: Very limited OC functionality, voltages offer very limited control, default values on “auto” settings apply excessive voltages generating needless extra heat with very limited capability for adjustments. Seems as if MSI has disabled lots of functionality of the onboard chips.

Other Thoughts: AMD PSP (processor security feature similar to intel management engine) has disable option in BIOS. Unfortunately when I saved settings in bios as disable and rebooted it threw up red CPU led and locked the board up...... 5 days outside of return window. Now I’m going to have to see if support is actually helpful.

Worked poorly for a few hours

Pros: Bluetooth and WIFI, never got to test those though.
Lots of connectors
Looks pretty, has some RGB

Cons: Worked for a few hours until the CPU socket died. First it gave bad thermals (100+ on CPU). Tightened stock cooler slightly as it was slightly loose. Wouldn't boot after that, claimed CPU was bad. Replaced CPU with another and still the same error (red CPU LED).

Could also use more USB ports.

Other Thoughts: I liked the BIOS.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. The only possible way the motherboard could affect the cooling is if the CPU Fan header (or any fan header) was not working properly. Aside from this, the cooler and its installation are highly probable to be the error. It looks like the high temperature may have also fried the motherboard socket.

An excellent B450 Motherboard for the price!

Pros: - Great value
- Easy to set up BIOS
- Cool VRM Temps
- Great RAM applicability even if it isn't on the MSi QVL for this board
- A very decent overclocker
- RGB is subtle for my build
- x2 M.2 Slots
- Wifi (nice to have options that are normally on higher end boards)

Cons: - USB 3.0 connector is at the bottom of the board vice the typical RH side near the 24 pin plug. I had just enough space in my Phanteks case to manage the thick cable from the bottom, but it was close. Not worth dropping an Egg for sure.

Other Thoughts: This is my first MSi motherboard and I simply love it! To be fair, I upgraded from an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z and an FX8350, so you can imagine my glee of finally getting out of the AM3+ basement.

The Mobo came with the latest BIOS version and was easy to navigate through. The RGB is subtle and being a darker board, I chose 16GB (2x8) of Gray coloured G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200MHz RAM (F4-3200C16D-16GVGB).

I paired this with a Ryzen R5 2600 because of the overall price vs. performance value. I had considered the i5 8600K plus an x370 MoBo, but it would have added another $300 to my budget and I couldn’t justify that. The 2600X was also $50 more just for the extra boosted clock, so I purchased the 2600 with the aim of overclocking close to the top end of the X version. I have my OC set to a daily / gaming 4.0, but I can easily hit a stable 4.1 as well - I'm just a sucker for low temps. I have a Corsair H105 240mm AIO Cooler and it works like a charm to keep the temps down.

Overall, this motherboard or the Tomahawk are a solid choice of in the B450 class.

Love this board!

Pros: Paired with a Ryzen 2700x and Gskill RIPJAWZ RAM at 3333Mhz, runs great. Also has a 480Gb M.2 installed. Love the boot speed as a result.

RGB works great but not really a fan of RGB so meh.

Cons: Had to play around a bit but got the processor running at about 4.3Ghz at peak and the RAM at 3333Mhz, RAM didnt seem to like even numbers. Wouldn’t run at 3400Mhz or 3200Mhz. But meh, got the processor and RAM to bottle neck my 1070TI. Lol

Other Thoughts: Could always use a few more usbs but bought a case with 4 built in so it’s all good.

Locks up too often, unable to deliver on performance promises.

Pros: Easy to install, good looking board.

Cons: Locks up all the time. I bought a Ryzen 2700x and gskill 3200 to pair with this board. When running XMP 3200 the system locks up frequently. Ran memtest and confirmed memory is not bad. Also updated to latest BIOS. Stable when underclocking memory, but when running in game mode to boost the 2700x to 4.15ghz, the system locks up there as well. Ended up sending the board back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: This board can’t handle running components at high speeds.

4/ 5
Very good product, needs a little work on BIOS/Drivers

Pros: Super easy setup
Quality built.
RGB is a nice touch. (Was a factor due to the person I built this rig for)

Cons: Seems to be an issue with the BIOS or memory handling.
Manual needs a lot of work, but I was able to get what I needed from it. But I've done this for 25+ years may not be so good for a first time builder.

Other Thoughts: The only issue I have had so far has been with the memory. I ran GSkill RipJawsV DDR4 ram (F4-3466C18D-8GVK ) and tried to use the OC / Gaming Boost features. Computer crashed and would POST but would not boot to OS (Windows 10). I removed the GSkill ram and added the Corsair ram and it runs fine with the OC and Game Boost. Any combo with the GSkill ram causes lockups and crashes. I imagine it's a BIOS or driver issue and will be corrected at a later date ??

MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon
Ryzen 5 2600
EVGA GTX 1060
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 Ram (16Gb)
Seagate Baracuda 7200 1TB system/ 2Tb storage

For the price, amazing features and simple setup I would recommend this motherboard. In fact, I am ordering this board for my personal build... which is why I am here.
