Will do.

Thanks for the info.

It helped with my decision. 

This looked like the right board but clearly is not.

The more I look now that I know what to look for it looks like all the Ryzen stuff is just a gamble.......

I know exactly how you feel, believe me. I blew nearly 2k EUR on this Ryzen build alone.

I knew there would be issues here and there but it looks like AMD rushed it too quick, and ASRock left their summer trainees do the job on this generation of AM4 boards...

For crying out loud, I was initially aiming for the X399 Taichi but check how many people here having issues with a platform where the CPU alone is $1000! I'm surely glad I didn't go all-guns-blazing when I was buying last-gen AMD stuff, as much as I love team RED.

Seeing the defect rate across the board I went for a deal on an MSI B350 Tomahawk. On sale for $78 and a $20 off rebate on top of that. I was tempted to go with a nicer board but not with the current defect rate that seems to be 20% new and increasing in the following 3 months.  At $60 I can buy another when it comes time to rma the first at least I hope.

Please keep us posted with follow-ups!

While MSI is not my favorite brand it's hard to recommend a cheap and reliable AM4 mobo these days. I wonder what AMD thinks of all these abysmal mobo issues?

One does have to wonder if there is 350/370 chip-set issues also.

From reviews it doesn't look like you would do any better spending $260 on a motherboard. 

I would go with EVGA due to past experience but they are not in the game.  I have been running the 1060 6gb ssc in my old system and it's doing great.

I don't need a review to tell me this. LOL Check my OP threads and you'll see why. Angry

Looks like at least the 10th now before I get the MOBO and AMD had sent me an RMA after I let them know about my issues with Linux and crashing under low utilization but with multiple  apps. 
4 bash windows 2 running ssh 1 nano 1 python chrome with multiple tabs and streaming you tube.  The youtube always seemed to do it in and freeze the system up when I would go to switch video.

First with the MSI B350 Tomahawk. No sign of issues. Board runs quick and cooler than the Asrock fingers crossed no issues appear. Bios layout is a mess really WTF were they thinking it's horrible at best.  Bios says ram is at slower speed than ram stated but Ryzen master tells me otherwise.  Happy to have my new system running.

Thumbs up on the PC with replacement parts no crashing and ram posts to speed.  Not an overclocker so no word on that.
