I have the B450 version of this and it had a chip on the board fry on day 1 of me using it. Whatever chip controls the USB ports literally has scorch marks and put off smoke. The board still functions but it throws the windows sound of plugging in a new storage device over and over, and it cuts out the mouse and keyboard along with the disconnect sound. I RMA'd but it isn't a great sign that the board opted to commit suicide while powering a Ryzen 3 2200G at stock settings.

Last time I did an RMA with MSI it was for the B350M Gaming PRO (I think that's what it was called at least) where the whole board just up and died on me with the exact same 2200G inside, and it took MSI nearly 12 months on the money to send me a replacement board so I'm not exactly thrilled with the experience -they were prompt in issuing the RMA and it didn't cost me anything but man it took nearly a year for a new board to arrive. I ended up buying a different board and using the 2200G inside that for the 11 or so months while I waited (so I also know the chip isn't the issue). Worked fine in the Asrock board I got, but nothing but trouble from the cheaper MSI ones I've tried.

For anyone wondering why I have been through so many boards: I have a couple computers in my household. When an upgrade occurs one computer gets a hand-me-down upgrade.

BAZOOKA is supposed to make smoke. That's fine.
