Re: AMD Ryzen 5 or AMD FX?

Rather than start a new thread, only two chipsets are available for Ryzen in Micro-ATX size. A320 or B350, I assume the B350 is the best option as its aimed at overclocking and higher perfomance over plug-n-play type support. Either chipset had any bad press lately?

New micro-ATX motherboards from MSI and Gigabyte have been announced. That gives us 16 boards from which to choose. Newegg still has just the same three boards in stock.
