I have this board a Ryzen 1700 and Noctua NH-L9a, which fit nicely inside a very tiny SilverStone SG05-LITE case. I think I checked and it cools ever-so-slightly better than the stock Wraith Spire heat sink (which is already well suited for the job, from what I understand).
How did the installation of the Noctua go? I went for a NH-L9a AM4 and when tightened all the way the cooler's heatsink sits right on top of two VRMs. Like, no clearance at all. Decided to slap some duct tape on the bottom of the cooler's heatsink, just in case.

I saw that same seemingly non-existent gap and got concerned too. But then I slipped a piece of paper in there and realized as it passed freely that there was indeed a true micro-gap there, even with everything fully tightened down.

Got it from Microcenter on sale for 99$ just a few weeks ago for our new HTPC. Solid board. I don't overclock so can't be of much help in that department. Paired it with 220GE, 8GB of the cheapest DDR4 I could find (2133) and a Sabrent NVME drive. Few caveats: m.2 slot is on the back of the motherboard and there's not much airflow down there so be prepared to experience 50-60c on your NVME when doing extensive writes (if anyone knows of an ultra, mega thin NVME heatsink that would fit between the motherboard tray and MOBO itself, hit me up). Second thing, included WIFI is horrendous on 2.4GHz (getting only 20-30mbps). It's a 1x1 module. Will try replacing it with a 2x2 module. 5GHz should work fine. Other than that, good buy.
Do you mind sharing what and how do you run for HTPC on your build? How do you get a remote to work?

You didn't ask me, but I use a wireless mouse and keyboard for full computer functionality. No classic remote. Most of my HTPC-type use, the keyboard is not needed.

Got this from Micorcenter for $70 and paired with a R5 1600, $80. Running at 3.8 with no issues, might bump it up to 4.0. RAM is running at 3200 without issue.

If you have a Micorcenter near you this board qualified for $30 off when bought with a Ryzen processor. If you don't have a processor currently it is worth considering.
How did you get the Mobo for $70 when it's $115? Sale? Did they price match AND give you a bundle discount? Just wondering because I'd like to get the same combo.

Edit: I see someone else asked the same thing. Thanks.

A motherboard without NVME M.2 connector ? Pass!
On a itx Mobo the m2 slot is on the back due to space limitations. I have this exact Mobo and it's paired with a adata sx8200 pro nvme drive.

It's a non-true 6+2 phase design, (3*2)+2. It's going to handle any Ryzen 1000/2000 CPU, no problem. Just don't expect this to power the upcoming 12/16 core Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

"The VRM is in a 6+2 phase controlled by an Intersil ISL95712, it's in 3+2 phase mode and features two integrated drivers for the main 3 phase rail and one on the 2 phase rail. The SoC phases use two dual N-channel MOSFETs, and the VCore phases use one per phase. The Sinopower SM7341EHKP MOSFETs and high-power inductors should be solid for powering the new CPUs."

Thanks for the breakdown. I hate the BS marketing that MB companies do on their VRM designs.

Thanks.

Reviews are bad for GPU processor. Pass.
Maybe intel is better option for gpu processor?

This is a great motherboard. I'm at 3.7 Ghz running an R5 1600 at stock voltage. It has p-state overclocking, so you barely use anymore power.

Look around Microcenter for open box deals. I ended up getting this motherboard for 50 with the combo discount.

stick a thick enough thermal pad on it to use the mobo tray as the heatsink.

There's some asus b450 on sale at newegg now...

Has anyone got thoughts on whether I should keep my asrock fatal1ty itx x470 or get the asus b450 matx board? Obviously the itx limits me to 32gb forever and also people complain that the wireless antenna's wiring comes loose. On the other hand, I assume the b450 isn't as good in some ways.

I may forget both and keep my original atx fatal1ty x470 and forget a compact case...

do you remember if both of their fatal1ty x470s are the same in that regard? I "think" they are.

I'm stuck ina confusing situation. I have BOTH x470 fatal1ty board types and the itx can still be returned, the atx would have to be sold, or if I want neither I'd have to return one AND sell one, ie a big headache.

And it sucks big time that I am so close to 3700x releasing, yet my pc is so messed up I can't wait. Frown

Great info. Yep. I have an SG05 too. Love it. Running an i5 and a GTX750ti (it is 5-6 years old now I'm sure - it is fine for a media center and casual gaming).

The Antec ISK300-150 is even smaller. Like half as tall as the SG05. The PSU is custom for Antec and is 150W max. I would have to go with an external pico-PSU style (and related modifications necessary) to go bigger or for more power. The case will only hold a low-profile card, and even that is blocked, so an integrated graphics APU is the only practical way to go. I think Im using that same Noctua sink/fan in the Antec on the A10.
