  • this or the asus b550m-a?

  • I have been using ASRock B550M Pro4 for few days now - so far rock solid considering the price I paid. It has lots of options that other budget boards lack (like 4 fan headers, USB-C port at the back, nice looking heatsink, 3 M.2 ports incl. one Gen4, one half spec'd Gen3 and one for M.2 WiFi)

    I was so impressed that I ordered a 2nd board during eBay Plus 20% discount and touch wood I will have decent experience with these

    Check out this review from Hardware Unboxed - this board even passed (almost) Overclocked Ryzen 3950x stress test.

    I would strongly recommend this board if you are on strict budget.

    • Could you define strict budget?

      • 'Strict Budget' is subjective I guess, but lets say if you have $180-$200 budget for a B550 board (because top of the range boards are $250+) then I would definitely consider this.

    • Same experience here. Very happy with it. Aesthetics looks very good as well. Given the price I shouldn't really complain but here goes nothing:

      • Placement of the USB headers is a little bit inconvenient
      • In the CPU fan control there's no ramp-up delay time which makes it annoying especially for AMD
      • No Internet Bios update, only from flash drive
      • I would have appreciated a bit more clearance between RAM and GPU (https://ibb.co/w79DJmd)
      • Agree with you, specially number 4 is very annoying.

        FYI - not sure if you have experienced any issue, as soon as I downloaded ASROCK polychrome RGB control application and changed some LED lighting on my Silicon Power RGB RAM, the RAM started making high pitch noise (from the LED) - checked google and few people also reported this same issue… I couldn't get it fixed so returned the RAM

        I wonder if that Asrock app somehow contributed this issue, but most likely it could be dodgy RAM

  • Any good X570 board deals?

  • Will the B550m run Zen+?

    • -2 votes

      Yes.

      Only the 300 series boards can't run Zen3 (only up to Zen2), everything else can. 400 series boards will be able to run Zen3 early next year (late Jan, I think) when the bios are ready.

      • If you don't already have a motherboard I'd pay a bit more for B550 though.

        I imagine some of the older B450 Mobos like mine will have a slow / buggy transition to the new chips.

        • Compatibility wise… there's no difference.

          Sure, provided you bought crappy quality board, still… it'll be able to run the new chips after a bios update.

      • While true, that doesn't answer the question. OP was asking about backwards compatibility of B550 with Zen+/Ryzen 2000.

        To be clear, NO B550 board is compatible with Zen+

  • Looks like the B550M is out of stock now

  • Shopping Express have it for $149 + $11.30 shipping to Brisbane.

    Should have read above before posting…

  • How is the vdroop on this board?

  • Mmmmm OP sus

  • Should i get the asrock b550m now or wait for a better deal?

  • Delivery fee kills the deal.
