Literally one of the boards I am scared to use now. I have used around 10 of them and they were all different. A few crapped out, the rest were inconsistent. Like voltages all over the place, sometimes default would be too high or too low and sometimes it would not react to any BIOS voltage changes, making OC tricky. Reviews actually reflect that. Some had issues with memory, different kinds. But it does look good and few that worked properly were great

would think that's fixable via bios update or RMA?

hard to tell from reviews:
yeah one review complained it wasn't compatible with DDR3 Roll
some had Ryzen 2's and were inept

Well, a few had to go through RMA, others I have managed to make work more or less. With Ryzen I always update BIOS now, with newer BIOSes I can literally see how stock voltages change and RAM compatibility improves, I am not updating BIOS as much for Intel.
Granted, I have got I think around 5 of these in refurb condition directly from MSI and these worked somewhat better than new :-)

Those looking for dual monitors with the 2200G or 2400G, this board won't work from what I've read. Find a board with display port and HDMI, as those are the only supported dual display interfaces according to AMD.

They were available on Newegg.com with some coupon some time ago. I don't know if it's still there
