Just popped my system together.

MB: Taichi x470
Bios: v3.50
CPU: Ryzen 3700x
Memory: 2x Gskill F4-3200C16D-16GTZR
PSU: Corsair RMX 750
GPU: EVGA FTW GTX 1080
AIO: Corsair H115i Platinum
Case: Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic
SSD: Samsung EVO 500GB
HD: 2x WD Blue 4TB
Fans: 3x InWin Sirius Loop RGB 120mm

Everything went well until I tried to update "AMD ALL in 1 with VGA driver" from the Asrock App Shop. It totally borked my system. Couldn't even get into Windows with geting a BSOD. Even reinstalling Win 10 didn't fix it. I had to restore my SSD with a drive image to fix it.

Other than that, all is stable. However, I have my memory set really low at 2132 MHz. Just testing stability and board functions. Haven't tried using XMP yet, let alone severe overclocking or stressing.

Temps look good... about 34 or 35 at idle.

I will start pushing my system in the coming days.

Finally got all my hardware. Using a Athlon 200GE, I had no problems updating the bios to 3.43 and it booted right up. Haven't tested the stability or dimm speed yet, but so far so good.

Oh so close! Just received my board from Newegg with version 3.20 on it. Have a Athlon 200GE on the way. Hopefully, by the time I put this together V3.46 will be available.

It is done!

i managed to come by a R3 2200G and with it installed all bioses showed up and 3.43 installed without a hitch.

after that i popped in my R5 3600X and after a few cicles it started normaly and i am now installing drivers in windows as i am typing this in separate window.

you don't need all that driver install nonsense from AsRock Bios page if you are doing a clean install anyway, that is only needed if you are upgrading CPU only on already existing system. But if you are upgrading it is better to start from scratch anyway.

so for anybody that went with taichi X470 for their Ryzen 3000 build the conclusion is this:

YOU NEED RYZEN CPU to update to latest BIOS! AT LEAST "R3 1200"! older CPUs are losing compatibility.
The board wont let you select a bios version if currently installed CPU is not in newer version compatibility list. (kinda nice trick actually)

That is all :)
