ASRock AB350M Pro4 AM4 Micro ATX Motherboard - $49.99AR (Newegg)

Been browsing around for a cheap, basic MicroATX motherboard and it looks like Newegg has the ASRock AB350M Pro4 for $49.99 after $10.00 rebate this week. Thought it was a great price for a 4 RAM slot mATX with two m.2 slots, and has the bios already updated to support Ryzen Gen 2.

Reviews have it averaged at 3 eggs, but I personally haven't had any issues. I bought this when it first came out for a Ryzen 1600X build, and between the nvme drive it has been rock solid stable and boots fully to OS in about 8 seconds. With the new bios updates the RAM QVL has been expanded significantly, and I'm now able to run my RAM at its full 2933 speed. I have not attempted to overclock the CPU.

Note: Enabling AMD's advance boot training will prevent you from accessing the bios once ultra-fast boot is enabled. Turn it off and the restart to UEFI app will work again. Took me months to find that solution. Haven't seen any impact on stability.

I can confirm the negative reviews on this, experiencing constant reboots. Swapped out literally every component in the system, reboots still occur. In the process of getting the board RMA'd through ASRock directly as I've had the board for about 50 days (Newegg return policy is 30 days). People claim to not have issues once board is replaced, so I'm wondering if there was a bad batch that went out?

I purchased for this price originally ($49.99) as it allows a lot of features in the M-ATX form factor. I'd only recommend this if you're willing to deal with having to possibly RMA, etc. I'm fine with this, just as long as the RMA gets approved.

Hmmm. It's tempting, but there are just so many bad reviews. Seems like maybe poor QA. Some are fine and some aren't.

I bought this board for a friend's build and had the same rebooting issue. Switched the memory to slots 1 and 3 resolved the issue. Still recognized dual channel. I believe the manual has the memory config wrong.

Took a chance on this motherboard 2 months ago and it was DOA. Huge pain in the butt to figure out it was the motherboard since it was my first PC build in a decade.

Yep, I confirmed this when I first got it. Only reason I knew to check that was a coworker did a new build as well and found this out after contacting support, different board for him though. Memory for me is fine though, almost 2 months of running Patriot 8GB kit (PV48G300C6K) which was the only one on the QVL for this board that Newegg carried, if anyone is looking btw.

Board is great, as long as you don't have the reboot issue yummy

I had similar issue but it had to do with the memory slots. Makes no sense but both RAM sticks work 100% fine by themselves, but putting in 2 sticks no matter what slot I tried would crash. Every RAM slot works fine, again if only 1 stick is installed. It's a budget build anyways so I was too lazy to deal with RMA, shipping, waiting, etc, and just finished the build with 1X 8GB RAM kit. Not ideal but for regular desktop use no one could tell the difference between single and dual channel.

We use to call these ASuck mobos back in the day....lol....so many issues. Lots of those el cheapos did us dirty! Always found it better to just pay a few bucks more and just going with ASUS boards.

Unless you are trying to keep it small with an mATX build, probably safer to just spend the $20-30 extra bucks to get one of the ATX boards with similar specs. Looks like those have much better reviews on the whole...and none of the same problems experienced with these bad boys.

I have the ATX version of this that I got with a 1600X and no issues at all. I've always had ASUS mobo's but took a chance since it was essentially $20 in a MicroCenter bundle with the CPU at the time. It sounds like they might have had a production problem with a particular batch of these mATX ones though.
