210

This deal is back: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/614451

Copy paste from it:
Cheapest AM4 ITX mobo that is decent. Unlike A320, A520 now support precision boost overdrive. It has 6+2 phase VRM, a useable VRM heatsink, NVME ssd heatsink, three fan headers and ARGB header.
Buildzoid review in short good enough for processors that have a 65W TDP, use with a downdraft cooler.

(From the previous deal) only $10 post to Perth.

CPU support is limited to Ryzen 3000 (however NOT 3200G(E), 3400G(E)), Ryzen 4000, Ryzen 5000 series. you can see the list here: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/A520M-ITXac/index.asp#CPU

    Will this work with my gf and 2600 CPU??

    •  

      Nope, Ryzen 3000 and above

    •  

      2600 isnt on the compatibility list, but it might work if the BIOS version is old enough. Not so sure about your gf.

        Why would he take a chance on a CPU that is not on their official list? They are not supporting it with any Bios revision.

        •  

          I've seen Zen+ CPUs work on current gen motherboards, but I agree, the chance isnt worth taking.

        Bios support for this board never included the 2600, i would be pretty certain it wont post

      I don't know if your girlfriend would approve

      Maybe you should just be more open and tell her you also want a new CPU

    •  

      might have some issues since this is a motherboard and not gfboard

    Just put together a build with this board. No issues. A win in my books at this price!

    Great deal considering ITX boards usually carry such a big price premium

  •  

    I just finish watching the reviews for spud(the itx case, not sure if I spell correctly), and figured I just need an itx board. I can recycle other parts from my current matx system.

    May place the order tonight with the case.

      Spud? insert joke about running on a potato here

    If you have a Ryzen 5000 series cpu, then you need at least bios ver. 1.10 pre-installed on the motherboard.

    There's no CPU-less BIOS flashing on this board, so you'd need to have an older AM4 CPU on hand, or pay a computer store to flash it for you, or lastly use ASRock/AMD/PCByte's RMA service.

    I'm going through that last option with an Asus X570-i Gaming ITX board. AMD have boot kits available (low end AM4 CPUs) on loan for exactly this through their RMA process. I'm waiting for mine to arrive now.

    it doesnt have a front usb C… can anyone confirm?

    i am considering this SSUPD case https://www.pccasegear.com/category/25_2155/cases/ssupd-case...
