Q: I noticed that in an answer to a question somebody said that this will need a bios update to support ryzen 3000 cpus, however I thought that the "MAX" in the name of the products signifies that it is 3000 ready as opposed to the "PRO" model which isn't. Could I have some clarification please.
Answer by Website User on 29th April 2020
As the other questions state, this product does not need a BIOS update to support Ryzen 3000 series processors. -MR

Fantastic motherboard, bought to replace a broken motherboard, bios is easy to navigate. Fantastic delivery time from CCL to get it next day on a sunday, very pleased

Great performance for the price. Great compatibility Downsides are that the two 1x PCIe slots are useless - even a 2 slot GPU covers both. The 1x should be placed above the 16x instead

Items as described. Arrived when it was due to arrive..easy website. Very good and competitive price. Smooth transaction..will use again.

No problems with this motherboard in terms of getting windows running running a ryzen 5 3600 no bios update needed. However Considering a msi b450 mortar can be bought for around 20 more I would go with that

Only complaint is that theres only 3 fan headers but this is obviously easily remedied by a splitter. Good motherboard at a good price!

Biggest issue with this motherboard is a lack of fan headers so have had to add a dedicated fan controller.

Really pleased. First pc build. Added this with Ryzen 3400g and it works really well. Lots of options to future upgrade and really easy to set up after the build was complete. Very happy (and relieved it actually worked!)

Easy to install my Ryzen 5 3600, which worked right out of the box! The only significant issues I'd have with this board honestly are the same as I'd likely have with any mATX, that being it's a tad cramped, and with fewer PCIE slots that may be ideal, though for my starter build, I was fine. I was concerned about placement of the sole M.2 NVMe SSD slot relative to where the graphics card would sit, however this proved not to be an issue, even with my particularly chunky Patriot's heatsink. However it does mean I do need to uninstall my GPU before I have access to the SSD, which is not the case on some other boards. It has a brown PCB, which doesn't look too bad when you see it honestly, though my build isn't about internal looks that much, so your mileage may vary. Two 4-pin fan headers (+ the one for the CPU cooler) is something this board includes that others in the same price range do not always have. Overall, I rate it. Whether it's perfect for everyone I don't know, but I can tell you if you're planning to purchase this one for use with a Ryzen 3000 (or soon, 4000) series CPU or older, you'll be just fine. It even comes with an MSI sticker. Ain't that neat?

Decent quality B450 board for the price - handles a Ryzen 7 2700 OCed to 4.0GHz just fine and looks quite nice, especially for the price.
