Bought this less than a month ago from Amazon. Think it's worth exchanging for $10 more?

Buyer beware, these MSI MPG x570 Gaming boards have known thermal issues, and actually failed VRM tests. See this article (its an x570 tomahawk review but shows the thermals of all the boards tested including the x570 gaming edge which was terrible)

Full Article
https://www.techspot.com/review/2...-tomahawk/

Thermal Comparison of X570 boards

Good price, but thumbs down for a garbage product.

Nope I'm referring to the msi mpg X570 gaming edge wifi. It's 2nd to worst in the X570 vrm thermal tests in the link I posted and flat out failed with a 3900x cpu according to the reviewer. The msi X570 carbon is garbage as well. Don't buy either of these. Get the X570 tomahawk or a b550 board instead.

I am referring to this MSI B550 case. Do you recommend getting Asus B550 instead,

Best practice, stay away from MSI for AM3. Once a manufacturer botches something, that's a good indicator the rest of the market might be a better idea caveot emptor

MSI's B550 boards are perfectly fine and the only manufacturer consistently offering front panel USB-C connections on their B550 boards. The B550 Edge has a much better VRM than the X570 one. No one recommends the X570 gaming edge for good reason. If you want X570 MSI, the least expensive boards you should look at are the X570 Tomahawk and the Unify. It was only the initial X570 sub-$300 boards they released that were a problem. MSI still lacks a good, cheaper X570 option but most people either buy B550 or invest in a slightly better X570 anyway.

Thanks for the information. Can you suggest any B450 boards which cost less then B550 board. Are there good B450 boards for less than $100.

If you want an ATX board, realistically for sub $100, it's only the Aorus Elite V2.

https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-b...6813145251


Unfortunately, there isn't much data out there on the V2 since it is a new b450 refresh like Asus's B450 Strix Gaming F II. I am unable to verify the VRM but it looks like an 8+2 using doublers or a 4+1. Either way, definitely one of the better VRMs for the money.

Not a chance, the B550 Edge is much better than the X570 one. There are good x570 options for $160 to $170 if you wanted them, but the Edge is one of the best values in b550 currently even at regular price.
