Do you have you a question about the MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX AMD Socket AM4 B450 Chipset ATX Motherboard?

Q: Hi, Is this actually the Max version of the MOBO? Or are you just offering to Flash the non-max version of the board? Thanks
Answer by Website User on 20th August 2019
This is the MAX version of the motherboard with the pre-flashed BIOS. The current BIOS update website option applies to all B450 & X470 motherboards and can't differentiate the new MAX models, but you shouldn't need to update the BIOS on the MAX range.

Solid motherboard for the price, comes with all the things i needed! 5050 rgb header so it looks nice. but its not about aesthetics. The motherboard is a solid base to any ryzen 1 - 3rd gen processor. It also supports upto really high speeds of ram so its future proofing its self for a while too! and not to mention it doesn't need a motherboard update to work with the 3rd gen ryzens which is a bonus at this price range. Over all its a solid board for the price. and the nice red and black theme suits many builds.

I started a new build of a Ryzen 5 3600 system and realised that many current motherboards dont actually support it natively and required a BIOS update which was very fiddly. Then I found this excellent motherboard which supports the CPU right out of the box. In addition it has the flash bios button which I can use to upgrade BIOS even without an OS. Considering its price, I think its excellent value. The board came safely and neatly packaged in the box. 2 SATA cables supplied along with documentation. Construction and build quality is great. Fit perfectly in my new ATX case. Has plenty of connectors - more than enough for my gaming rig. Ample spacing between components so no concern on air flow/cooling. The graphics card socket has extra protection for heavier cards which is useful. Also has a Turbo M.2 slot which I'm using for my boot drive and has excellent performance. This was my first RGB motherboard and in general works well with my fans and LED strips. Mystic light software is ok for playing around with the lights although options are rather limited. The BIOS has many options for tweaking - includes gaming mode overclocking (which I haven't tried as its plenty fast for the games I play - along with my DDR4 3200 RAM and Rx580 Graphics card). Overall I'm quite happy with the motherboard and would easily recommend it for its excellent quality and value for money.

I bought this MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX motherboard after years of using an Intel cpu. I'm currently using it with a Ryzen 3600, a DDR4 8GB Crucial ram, and a GTX 1050ti. As it is from the MAX series it works flawlessly out of the box with the Ryzen 3000 series and this feature was what made me choose this mobo, great value for it's price and one of the best choices for a budget gaming pc. It works fine and didn't have any problem during the installation of the CPU and heatsink or with the BIOS. It has 2 pcie slots in case you want to upgrade to a SLI in the future and has 4 ram slots.
