there are no limitation on this board aside form those imposed by the CPU (20 PCI E lanes, USB ports, etc). what you are read is BS form idiots who don't know how to read the manual. i can personally guarantee you that you can boot from anything IF you know how to configure the BIOS.

Just to clarify the specs do list one of the M2 slots supporting NVMe boot drives and non-boot NVMe drives are supported in the other M2 slot as well.

As for not being able to boot from HDD or CDROM this would require enabling "UEFI with Legacy Boot" in the BIOS, it's a quick fix.

It's standard that if you install a SATA M2 drive into the M2 slot that the MoBo uses one of the existing SATA lanes/ports for that SATA connection. Normally the last one or in this case two SATA ports. PCI express NVMe drives are so cheap now with QLC based storage there's not much reason to bottle neck your system with a SATA bussed M2.

I hope that helps somewhat.

Amazon review mentions a couple of limitations when using M2 drive, like not being able to boot from an HD or a DVD as well as you lose two of four SATA ports. Also, not all M2 drives seem to be compatible. Do your own research.

But all b350/450/ryzen boards have at least one nvme supporting slot, right?

I'm at the point where I dont consider anything with rebates on newegg. My most recent situation with them involved them sending me the rebate credit card that was expired upon receiving it. And the previous experience was them sending a card that didnt work

Not my case. I just received my final rebate (out of four) from NewEgg on my last Rig build. I had two AsRock rebates (mobo and GPU) and two Cosair rebates (case and powersupply). All bought on NewEgg. I just received last and final rebate few days ago. NewEgg charges no taxes and free shipping. I bought all my PC parts and Oculus Rift from them. Lowest prices and no issues.

This board is great for budget builds. Got it comboed with a Ryzen 2600X from Newegg for about $234 a few weeks back and I've had no issues with it. The bios is easy to navigate imo. My build is strictly for gaming.

I have this board with 1800X running ffmpeg with 100% CPU usage and it boosts to 3.64GHz on all cores just like it's supposed to. I know everyone always says you have to get high end X470 motherboard such as taichi for 8 core chips, well, not in my experience with this board. I wouldn't go overclocking an 8 core chip on it, but it works just fine with stock settings.

It's also the most flexible motherboard with what I think is the best layout out of all B450 microatx motherboards. The primary M.2_1 slot is above the videocard so your videocard won't blow hot air directly onto the drive when you're gaming. It also has second PCIe 2.0 16x slot, while many other B450 motherboards have just PCIe 1x slots, and it also has second M.2_2 slot for M.2 SATA drive. As far as B450 MicroATX motherboards go, I think it's perfect. Just don't expect to use it for overclocking.

The only issue I have with this motherboard is that with 2 NVME drives installed (one in M.2_1 slot, and another one through the PCIE adapter plugged into the PCIe 16x slot) it won't reliably reboot. It'll boot from cold boot, but if I restart my PC it'll either fail to recognize m.2 drive in m.2_1 slot, or it'll just be stuck at bios boot screen refusing to boot. But if I power my PC down and turn it back on, it cold boots just fine. Weird issue, and I'm not sure if it's Asrock or the PCIe adapter I'm using for the second NVME drive or the MyDigitalSSD BPX boot drive in m.2_1 slot, no idea what's happenning here.

I think i would rather have OPs vs the Fatal1ty B450 GAMING-ITX/AC for $20 more that keeps going on sale. I guess if you have to have and itx build you are stuck with the more expensive one...

Not sure which one has better vrms since they are both asrock b450s.
