Thanks for the suggestion. I looked at the newegg page and it seems from the customer reviews, people either love it, or have severe problems with it. A lot of them said they had no problems at all and everything worked fine, while others had problems such as not being able to overclock, raid not working etc.
One particular review said that he was not able to overclock a Ryzen 5 1600x on the board, which is what I was planning to do. Overall, the board seems to have many more problems than it's worth.
However, i'm still dedicated to the superior multitasking and productivity performance of the Ryzen 5 1600x, so if you know a board which is known to be very reliable, for around the same price, that would be great.
