Quick tip if your build will not post
Pros: Stability-focused no-frills board with the feature set I was looking for.
Cons: Taking off one egg because the following situation is not clearly addressed by MSI: Once assembled board would not post. My first guess was it needed a bios update since Ryzen is known to be picky with regards to memory. But how can you flash the bios if i you can't get into it? Thankfully this board features a bios flash button on the back panel. Follow the instructions from MSI to use this feature. In summary: download latest bios from MSI, rename bios file to MSI.ROM and drop it in the root of a FAT32-formatted flash drive. With the computer POWERED OFF, put the flash drive into the lower usb port and push the flash bios button. A red LED will begin blinking indicating the bios is being updated. Once the update is complete the LED will turn off. After I did this the board posted and I was able to move onto installing the OS. Hope this helps anyone who is in the same situation.
Overall Review: Of course only time will tell but out of the gate this board appears to be a solid choice for no-frills micro atx builds focused mainly on stability and longevity.
