One big regret 3 weeks after build

Pros: Despite the box being smashed in transit, the motherboard works great. Great for number and variety of ports, no problems with the build, even came with Ryzen 3XXX drivers a week after launch.

Cons: I bought my fans and RAM partly because they were supported by ASROCK polychorome RBG software. I thought the software was pretty terrible but usable. Then uninstalled it because it prevents my #1 game from loading, as it is flagged by anti-cheat.

I guess ASRock didn't think to consider gamers when building their motherboards.

Overall Review: I like the board, I just wish I had known I would end up having to run motherboard RBG from BIOS, RAM RGB from its own software, and the fans from their own RGB software.

Great Motherboard Terrible RGB

Pros: Easy to setup.
Ports and plugs make sense.
Great for overclocking.

Cons: IO Shield LED looks like it has a dead or dying LED.
Polychrome stinks.

Overall Review: Everything was great, then a week in Polychrome stopped responding, and eventually after I got it fixed, I realized the IO Shield RBG LEDs weren't quite right. It's has a yellowish/orange hue when set to 255 on all colors (white).

The other two work fine.

I'm not sure this is working disassembling my entire computer and RMA'ing, but it's really killing my OCD and makes me not want to recommend this board or other ASROCK products. I was going to buy an ASROCK 5700XT when it was released and now I'm having second thoughts.

Great board

Pros: Worked with my 3700X right out of the box
VRMs stay cool
I find the UEFI to be easy to use and understand
IO armor
reinforced PCIE slots and they're both 16 lane (unless you run two)
Does't appear that the main m.2 takes away from any of the SATA ports
WIFI and BT

Cons: Aesthetically I think there are better looking boards
Asrock isn't the fastest at releasing new BIOS
Asrock isn't as engaged as GB

Overall Review: I got mine on sale, so for the money, I couldn't be happier

very happy with asrock support

Pros: problem solved...

Cons: problem...

Overall Review: i had bought this mb with the assumption that i could use asrock's 'instant flash' feature to update the bios, as my board came with p 3.20 not p 3.40 .. problem is that another driver needs to be installed prior to the bios update, so yes another cpu is required to do that. my contact with tech support was quick and precise with them offering to do the update for me, saving me $70 + for a cpu i wouldn't be using again. shipped it out to them on monday; will be back to me on thursday with work done at no cost other than my shipping it to them.. so happy that the work was done right by them and that i can put this new build together soon... then an update for the board itself...

Extremely disappointed with ASrock's support

Cons: M.2 support is spotty
Tech support never got back to me
Fraudulent information on Newegg and via ASrock

Overall Review: Decided to upgrade my ASrock AB350M Pro 4 in preparation for Ryzen 3000. Newegg had a great deal after mail-in rebates on a X470 Taichi, so I ordered that and 2x m.2 drives (one pcie3 and one sata)

The drives worked fine on my old b350 board but only one drive worked at a time on me new x470 taichi (yes I read the manual, yes I know about slot conflicts, only one video card is installed in top slot)
I could get both drives to work by putting the PCIE3 NVME in the slower slot. But that cut my performance down by over 50%

I tried reaching out to ASrock tech support, also made a post on their forums and on Reddit, and a couple of people said they had the same issue but received no support, some people said it worked for them and most said that what I was doing was no longer supported.

Both this Newegg product page and the included support manual says both slots are SATA compatible

"8 SATA3, 1 Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4 & SATA3), 1 M.2 (PCIe Gen2 x4 & SATA3)"
Is my motherboard defective? or is there a setting I'm missing?

All around great motherboard

Pros: - No problems with boot, decent BIOS options, great VRMs if you want to attempt some decent overclocking
- Easy time boosting RAM up to decent speeds (3200Mhz for my sticks)
- Ran perfectly smooth with Ryzen 2700X
- Clean all black and dark silver/grey theme really complements my all black NZXT H700

Cons: - I really want the LEDs on the motherboard to stay a static color but the only options available are everything BUT static. Oh well, this is a very small complaint.

Overall Review: Waited a while to write this so I knew I wasn't in the honeymoon phase. I've had it for >4 months without problems or hick-ups.

Need Additional Setup

Overall Review: I bought this motherboard to use with a Ryzen 3600 processor.

Please keep in mind that the BIOS the board ships with does NOT support that CPU right out of the gate.

Must have another computer to update the BIOS with before the 3600 can run.
