the x470 may be less relevant in in the ITX format as you're limited to 1 GPU regardless.

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...
not true, the new chip will likely be 65W TDP to start off with - more likely 12-core than 16 initially.

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."

yeah, but I am not going to use over 1 gpu, anyway (probably ever, because I don't game on pc so far).

So I'm more just concerned about whatever wireless issues people had on it. And also just curious if anyone knows how the asus b450 compares to it in overall performance.

What I would LIKE yo do is wait for 3700x and get an x570, but I don't think I can make it that long.

Are those in-store only? On the Microcenter page it's listed for $115 w/ $30 off:

https://www.microcenter.com/produ...otherboard [microcenter.com]

If in-store only, is there a way to see them online?
I was just at the Denver Microcenter and this board is indeed $115-$30 if you get it with a cpu.

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.
I guess it was on sale as well, when I looked at my receipt it was 69.99 and the processor was 79.99.

Based on the user reviews the MSI board was the best of the mITX options.

Do you mind sharing what and how do you run for HTPC on your build? How do you get a remote to work?
We're still in the process of setting everything up. Planning on using Kodi for playback on HTPC (along with plain old Explorer + PotPlayer) and Plex for playback thru Roku. As far as the remote control go, I'd suggest you look into Caavo. It's a 4 port HDMI switcher meets universal remote. We have a Roku, an Xbox and a PC connected to it, and we're able to control Roku and Xbox with one simple remote (and switich seemlessly between devices back an forth). Since a few days ago, Caavo got updated with something they call TV Mode. Basically, you push a button on Caavo's remote and it becomes a remote that controls yout TV exclusively. So now, we can control OTA TV too! As far as PC control goes, Caavo doesn't do that unfortunately. We use Pepper Jobs' Gyro airmouse/keyboard remote to control our HTPC. So, in a nutshell, we have 4 devices and just two remotes which is noice. Caavo control over 3 devices and switching between all 4 and one remote for PC - airmouse and keyboard input. Works quite nicely. Side note: Caavo remote's keys are not backlit (but some of them are capacitive), but Pepper Jobs' remote is fully backlit.

All ryzen. May need older chip if bios is old.
This particular board supports all Ryzen processors out of the box, apart from 220GE and 240GE Athlons. 200GE is supported right out of the box. But, for Ryzen 3... yeah, you'll need to update the BIOS.

I have an Asus Strix ITX, and I disagree.

Solid board. Have a 2700x in mine and I'll be ready for Ryzen 3.

We won't know until they release, but even if the 12c CPUs start at 65W, I would likely expect them to be moderately underclocked and unable to reach the higher clocks with this board.

The MSI had the best VRM implementation on their B450 board, but the BIOS doesn't even allow voltage offset. Frown

Honestly the Asus and Asrock X470/B450 ITX boards were all decent for overclocking and I expect the X570 boards to have beefed up VRMs for overclocking the 12/16c CPUs. The fact that Asus is bringing back their "Impact" brand means it's going to be a high-end ITX board.

What kind of cpu cooler is that? It's been awhile since I've built a pc, but that thing looks comically large.

LOL! I was waiting for someone to say something about it in this case. It's a be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 [bequiet.com]. It was a serious PITA to install in this case. It takes A LOT of planning as to what order you put the components in including case fans. I couldn't keep the front fan on it because it was so close to (read right on top of) the sticks of RAM, but it has a fan in the middle of it and I added a fan in the middle of the case to take up the slack. The build is very quiet even while gaming. No complaints whatsoever.
