I took the time to register and post a review, because I'm not only impressed with this board, but impressed with the recent bios update.

Pairing this board with:

CPU: Ryzen 3700X
RAM: Trident RGB 2 x 8GB 3200 MHZ

It has performed exceptionally well with only minor issues that aren't specific to this board.

There had been online speculation that the VRM cooling wasn't good enough, this isn't the case at all. You would need to do intense stress testing on a heavy overclock to reach any type of throttling. I use an AIO and have had no issues whatsoever even during recent heatwaves.

Onto the minor issue, I had issues with my RAM not reaching 3200 MHZ, I could however run at 3000 MHZ, but this was a bios issue not due to the board and apparent across all brands.

The latest bios 2.60 fixed this, currently running at 3200 MHZ loading the default XMP profile, I've had no issues so far.

First experience with ASRock, very happy.

It does not, you will either have to flash the bios yourself or ask the store you're purchasing from to do it for you. CCL Computers do this for you if you're living in the UK.
