i mean, it wouldn't be my choice because the b450 version exists, but it's a okay board, especially for that price

Well keep in mind I got my motherboard soon after Ryzens launch thus why its B350 not B450.

Still I like my Asrock ab350 pro 4, as long as it works thats all I care about.

Even little headroom for overclocking I am still happy here :D

I may upgrade my motherboard yes but for now i am quite pleased how things turned out

Dunno if this'd help but I'd like to share my experience with the ASRock AB350M:

It's a decent motherboard that you could find for pretty damn cheap, often below $60. It's very clearly a budget B350 board, but it's a better board than you'd expect because of the expectations one might set for it. Don't expect miracles with overclocking (especially on a Ryzen 7) but it can tackle Ryzen 3 and 5 overclocking fine.

Shit tonna USB ports and that's one of my favorite features by far. Also, PS/2 ports, which I did find a use for a few times.

My major problem with the board is potentially trivial for some and deal-breaking for another: the PCI-Express slots and the positioning of them. This board has two of them, which is fine. What's not fine is that the top slot is a 1x slot and the one below it is a 16x slot, and for someone who has a capture card and an R9 Fury X, it really doesn't look nice. I feel that ASRock should've done a top 16x slot and a third slot 1x slot. Also, only one fan header, which makes very little sense.

I like its UEFI interface, it's not overly complex or flashy and works rather well. I also don't mind that it supports dual-channel memory even though this board only has two RAM slots.

 

At this point, you should get the B450 version of that board; in fact, the AB350M is basically discontinued. But that's just my two cents from someone who's owned the board for over a year.

Check out my guide on how to scan cover art here!

Is and S tier board necessary for me? I will be ocing a 9900K to aa high as it can go, probably 5.2GHz or higher maybe. Also I am gonna use only 1 RTX2080 Ti, as well as 32Gbs of DDR4 3600 RAM. Quite a high end system. If not, then what tier should I look at?

So is an S tier necessary? Or should the money be spent elsewhere?

Asus Rampage VI Apex is discontinued AFAIK. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to play with x299 and has a chance to get their hands on it but unfortunately it's very hard to get. 

 

You might want to either add a disclaimer there or just flat out remove it.

Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 1 TB M.2 NVME  |  PSU: In Win SIV 1065W 

Cooling: Custom LC 2 x 360mm EK Radiators | EK D5 Pump | EK 250 Reservoir | EK RVE10 Monoblock | EK GPU Blocks & Backplates | Alphacool Fittings & Connectors | Alphacool Glass Tubing

Yeah probably in few places as well. Just providing additional info. Oh and btw I think they discontinued the Rampage VI Extreme as well and replaced it with Rampage VI Extreme Omega. Not sure though, I'm kinda skipping most info about current HEDT platform.

How expensive is a heat sink which is basically a piece of metal on a board, if the chipset has one, why VRM no metal blanket 

 

Makes me upset,

The only guy to use a B450 Pro M2.

It makes my PP cry :,-(

I'm glad the list could help you out. The Pro4 is a great board for the money :)

@LukeSavenije@XR6 only B450 at ATX size at pricepoint and decently up on the tier list.  Was glad to have that as a resource!  ($65 shipped after MIR)
