Asrock AB350M Pro4 Motherboard AMD Ryzen Build

Another AMD Ryzen build! In this build I focus on Asrock AB350M Pro4 micro Atx motherboard's ability to overclock the CPU and RAM speeds it can achieve. How high can we push the voltages on the cpu using the stock cooler.

This was the cheapest am4 motherboard with the 350 chipset I could find at the time. How well does it perform?
The VRM is pretty weak on the board and it causes the voltages to be a little jumpy. Watch Buildzoid's breakdown of the PCB here:

I still recommend this motherboard if you're on a budget. The CPU is at 3.9 GHz and the RAM runs at 3200 Mhz. No complaints at all.

    does this board have the rgb header for the r7 1700 cpu fan

  • Jesse Wetzel

    I actually went with the CMK16GX4M2B3000C15, which is the 3000Mhz version of the ram you got. I then clocked it to 3200Mhz and CL16! No issues. 1600 @ 3.8Ghz. Great board for the money!

  • Caius Maia

    Hi, i bought Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (2x4GB) 2666Mhz DDR4 CL16 Red - CMK8GX4M2A2666C16R for this mobo, should i be worried?

  • Alfonso David Rodriguez

    did you need to jump the CMOS at any time during overclocking?

  • Thanasis Kon

    Hey I bought the same Mobo but when I try to boot it says select proper boot device, my disk priorities are right. And I have this efi shell as second boot option. Do you happen to know anything of this issue?

  • RobLivesOn

    Awesome :) So helpful! Thanks for uploading. I was looking at this combo- Would you recommend switching out the stock cpu fan or not?

  • Mohammad Amir Faisal Mohammad Bohari

    I was wondering what is the dimension for the board top and bottom stock heatsink?

  • Mamo

    Why did you select that specific RAM, especially since it is not on the ASRock Memory QVL?

  • Itay Palachi

    hey great you have any idea if one of those rams should work? couldn't find any info about them...

  • Tvoy Drug

    R u goin to oc on matx mb? Coolstory. No radiators on power supplies, I mean

    The main problem is that you can't put gpu in 3.0 pci-e slot. Because front panel cables and hd audio don't allow you to do that. So you can use only 2.0 pci-e slot. They should have set these slots vice versa.

  • xprS Z

    It's so tightly packed but can you still add in a tp link wifi card on the pcie?

  • Jamie Jongers

    I have same board and ram if I wanted to oc the ram to 3200 MHz do I need to change the voltages at all?

  • Tree Dog

    does it support windows 7? It only lists win 10 on the official site under OS. But win 10 is spyware cancer, and I will not buy hardware that forces me to use it

  • Sari Kaw

    does it also apply if i use r7 1700 w/ stock cooler on it? can i hit 3.9-4.0 on that?

  • Ken the Eagle

    I have a question for any one.... I got this same motherboard, overclocked the ryzen 1700 to 3.8ghz @ 1.25v with the ram on xmp2 clocked at 2666 at 1.25v and booted perfectly fine. The problem is, why are my cinabench R15 scores worse than the cpu at stock 3.0ghz 1.185v???? That makes NO sense.... It's not thermal throttling because it's on water. Could cinnabench be wrong? I have a feeling I'm doing something wrong... REPLY

  • BlazingApple

    Anyone experiencing freezimg issues with this Motherboard?

  • Quim C N

    Thank you very much, it seems to be a very solid MODO, I'll go deninetly for it.

  • Mazatzin Keej

    Men, can i go for this configuration with the motherboar in ATX versión? I mean, i want this motherboard but in Atx form factor.

  • Ed

    I need a heads up on what the current bios will handle on ddr4 ? 4200???

  • Muhammad Fahreza

    Hi, I have similiar build. But I found the CPU Speed always runs on full speed at Startup.Sometimes it stops just before Windows Login Screen, sometimes it stops within 5 seconds.Is it okay if this happens ? Or can you give me an advice to setup something to improve ? best regards,

  • vexedne

    NEVER go with an ASRock product! I bought the AB350M Pro4 thinking it had great specs and I'd try something other than ASUS for a change. Huge mistake! After days of struggling to find the issue for random freezes, reboots and other issues I with with the ASUS TUF Gaming and all my worries were gone. I found via forums and reviews a lot of people were having this issue and going mad trying to solve it with the assumption it couldn't be a motherboard flaw. The only thing worse than the board is the customer support, they offered an exchange and still haven't sent me my rebate from when I bought it in November (waited three months to actually do my build). Avoid ASRock at all costs, there's a reason this board is so cheap!

  • Bill Mantzounis

    Excellent review..thank you for the information

  • Kingy B

    Only $59.99 now..what a steal !

  • Ali Nadem

    Try this fix for freezing, potentially solved:

  • akbar E-z

    is it possible to use dual graphics on this motherboard? im planning to have one of this. but im afraid it doesnt have enough space to do so. im have asus gtx 1050 2gb and gtx 560 2gb. i will use this setup for my CUDA project

  • Wilson Tong

    is your memory 3200mhz out of the box? I have 3200mhz and my pc won post. Does anyone know if that is the problem? should i get lower frequency ram? thank you!

  • gregor Kosak

    Does anyone know which slot I must install for dual channel ram? is it the 2nd one and the 4th one? or first 2? for ASRock AB350M motherboard : those 2 rams build up: Asrock AB350M Pro4 MotherboardAMD Ryzen 5 1600 3,2/3,6GHz GIGABYTE Windforce 2x GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB GDDR5Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz (or should i go for: CRUCIAL 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR4 2400?)btw good build for CS GO,BF1 or GTA V ?

  • Matthew H

    Dude, I don't think your ram speeds are what you think they are. Yea, you show it in CPU-Z but i'm guessing it didn't hold that speed after a restart. At 5:18, after you thought you changed it and said it was good to go, it is actually still at 2133. I've got same mobo and have spent 20 hours in it the last week. The numbers on the left side of the XMP profile are your current specs.Also, that ram isn't even on the board's QVL list.

  • Jeanne D'Arc

    only x370 chipset will support Nvidia SLI

  • Yume ei

    what is your mobo bios ver. ?

  • Earl Ranon

    Hi TeaLeaf,What are the ram timings for CMK16GX4M2B3200C16? I get BSOD/no post when trying 3200mhz in default xmp profile. Thanks

  • Ujo Luky

    hi your vcore is on 2.8v can u show default bios and how is temps then?

  • Z T

    Is it true this card has many freezes, as i read in internet ? micro atx freezes but not atx ??...

  • The Gaming Brony

    Will the Cooler Master Evo 212 fit the Asrock AB350M pro4?

  • ray

    Hey I am having problems with my ryzen build in games my computer seems to crash 40 - 50 minutes in and sometimes when I alt tab I have tested all my parts and they are running fine the only thing I am doubting is the 1x8 ddr4 2400mhz ram I have its team group ram any ideas what's happening?

  • manyblinkinglights

    Thanks, man! Invaluable!

  • Patrick Do

    Its actually a pretty good budget board. Looks like Asus this time around uses lower VRMs. Asrock, good job.

  • Smoke

    can someone reply to me?i builded a pc with the asrock ab350 pro4 and a ryzen 7 1700 but i havent yet got the gpu,So i build the system,run it and it post 5 short beeps,and 5 short beeps is cpu error.does this happen to other guys?

  • I.A.R Tech&Gaming

    @TeaLeafDoes this motherboard has low temperatures, is it a cold motherboard, does it supports overclocking?

  • Alexander


  • Gadget Gallery

    How many cabinet fans can be connected to it???

  • kesh4six

    Finally a video of this board. I got the Corsair Vengeance LED 3200MHz and will be using it in this build soon once i gather all the parts. Just wanted your two cents on whether it was a good choice? Kinda already bought it so its a bit too late now but yeah. Thanks!

  • Wesley Poon

    i am wondering the onboard graphic chip is which gpu, for official website they didn't show the actual onboard chipset.can you tell me about that? that will be a great info....thanks

  • Dean Cosmic

    I have exactly the same as you and was wondering what you think if the latest bios revision 3.0?

  • Ed

    thanks for the advice heres my build :

  • Genuine Peach

    I'm building a PC using this motherboard and an AMD Ryzen 1500x processor. You mentioned in the video that we shouldn't use certain types of RAM because you won't get full use out of it? Also, you said that temperatures will rise if you use a certain voltage. Right now, I have crucial 2x4gb RAM 288-pin DDR4 because they're known to do their job and last long. I also have a SeaSonic 12V 520W M12II Bronze EVO Edition power supply. Do you think there will be any issues with these components?

  • Alex Gayon

    Hi i want that mobo but don't see any video that showing to OC any ryzen with stock voltage to 3.7Ghz. I See someone do it with MSI b350 pro VDH (Ryzen 3 1200 stock cooler)it's so simple he just put on multiplier 37 hit enter and then save, So easy. Can you show us also with the Very Simple OC that everyone can attain without having trouble with crazy stuff volt adjusting. Anyway i'm so interested on that because the ashrock is more feature than MSI so many people will learn on it and take the advantage of OC.

  • Dee Luo

    when I set to xmp 3200, it restarts couples times with three beeps sounds, then nothing happened.

  • Wilson Tong

    If I want to oc to 3.6 ghz, with the same build except for different ram branding, and gpu, what voltage should i put?

  • Don Barron

    With this board can you run two sets of CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 for 32GB @ 3000?

  • Bobby Allen

    I have a question, if the CPU isn't compatible with the current bios can you flash it by booting with the incompatible CPU? Just wondering as I've ordered it but I'm worried I can't update bios as its not compatible with the CPU out of the box, thank you.

  • Alejandro Hernandez

    I bought same ram with same cpu but with 2400mhz?? is that ok to use? please help!!1

  • zkl01

    im getting freeze and blackscreen in games and heaven bench after an hour. My ram is in the qvl so i dont think its incompatible. Is it a DOA mobo?

  • manny Rodriguez

    when you restart from windows does your motherboard skip the bios mines does

  • mistertwister

    I'm getting this for my first build, should I research how to overclock like you are saying? Or is the default stuff just fine?

  • Alaa Sedki

    Excellent Review, I'm going to buy the same PC build very soon. I will go for the ATX version of the ASrock pro4.

  • Practical Guy

    Awesome build. I'm thinking of doing this exact same cpu/mobo/ram combo. Is it stable? any crashing or freezing you've noticed? Also how did you screen capture the EFI bios in this video? Thats cool.
