ASRock screwed up the VRM cooling. There is like kilometer of thermal pad under the heatsink

Iv read up on that , isnt that issue fixed by now ? Something along the lines of either Asrock sends you the rectified heatsink , or the newer boards have it fixed from factory

Yea they fixed that. The new batch had a  thinner thermal pad

And then they fixed that, by moving the heatsink down.


So wait, a team of engineers made a mistake in a thermal solution?  That couldn't possibly happen, because 'engineers'.

Multi GPU centric chip for a board that can only take a single graphics card.


Released many months after Ryzen launch.

I wonder why they aren't using the X300, instead?  Unless it's because of the missing native USB 3.1 gen2 support in the chipset.

AMD is not responsible for that. It is caused by mobo makers. Asus probably wanted to be safe in the case of Zen fails.

RAM: Corsair LPX Vengeance 16gb kit 3266MHz, 16-16-16-35 1.375V

Intel can do itx, AMD is lagging behind every step of the way for those who want to do compact builds. Nothing will change the fact those who wanted to suppprt AMD this gen and go itx were shafted.

AMD isn't responsible for the actions of motherboard manufacturers.


Many motherboard manufacturers have stated at Ryzen's launch, that they were uncertain of Ryzen's success, and that mini ITX is a niche product, thus they weren't going to start making mini ITX motherboards until/unless Ryzen was successful.


What I want to know is, what the hell were those motherboard manufactures smoking?  Of course Ryzen will never be successful.  Nobody wants 8 cores for $500, not when (at the time) Intel was making 8 core CPUs for $1000
