    Does it support ryzen 5 2400g right out the box or do i need to upgrade bios first?Anyone with experience??

  • Popcorn Chicken

    Your cinebench would probably be better now. I can easily get 157 single core and 1290 multi on a ryzen 5 1600. I've seen the 1700 reach upwards of 160+ single and 1500-1600 on multi too.

  • Nazrul Islam

    I hear that b350 pro4 and k4 use same vrm design. So if i get that can i get same level of overclock as this. Also which one is better asrock gaming k4 or asus strix b350

    Hey can this motherboard fit in a mid tower case???

  • DeathAlley's List of Cool Clips

    Hey guys, first time PC builder here. I recently bought this motherboard with Ryzen 5 1500x and my RAM is 2x4GB Team Vulcan 2400MHz. I would power on my system (600w EVGA), it would be stuck on a 'boot loop.' After 7 hours of researching, it seems like it's a ram problem. Any ideas? I've taken out the CMOS battery and reset it. Reseat the ram, ran with one stick, switched sticks, no stick. Nothing helped. Please help me.

  • William Chang

    love your reviews, this motherboard seem to be loaded with features. please review other ryzen motherboards. Thanks!

  • Trimax Inventius

    Eventually I everything figured out except for sound. My five year old notebook with Realtek ALC269 from 2009 sounds better than this MOBO with still old, but three years younger Realtec ALC892 . It's like as if it was subdued. It's quiet and oddly dull. Have anybody encountered this? What should I do to fix this?

  • Christian Perez

    I got the ASRock AB350 Pro4 and its an awesome board for the price.

  • Vicknesh Shanmugam

    Curious to know, did you tried to enter sleep mode from Windows with this motherboard? Got this motherboard and it looks like it's having problem exiting S3 state.

  • Trimax Inventius

    Does it not have a dual BIOS (UEFI)? Is it a good thing to make sure that the MOBO I'm buying have this?

  • ziher123

    Can you turn off those diodes? i don't want anything distracting me from my 3 monitors in dark.

  • BOX666 EWSER

    Does it fit a Galax ExOC Sniper 8GB video card? 'Cuz its a little wide. Thank You.

  • Pc ColdWar

    could be nice you had remove heat sink and show power phase and moffet well done all around review for my point of view since you provide us whit nice overall picture of the product just to let know people out there you get same power phase and chipset whit ab350 pro4 which is cheaper and offer same experience overall but i got a rx 480 msi x gaming so kind of turn me to this board or b350 pc mate probably going to get msi one since you can hit 2933 mhz did you try to manually set ram lantecy ?

  • Rolando Loeb

    support ryzen 5 right out the box or need upgrade bios

  • Trimax Inventius

    How do I update the BIOS? I can't use Instant Flash utility because its not in the current BIOS. There are two versions on Asrock website BIOS and DOS which one should I choose? BIOS doesn't work I guess DOS version is the right choice, but there is written this utility works only in DOS mode. What does this mean? Could someone explain me simply what to do?

  • Robert Lane

    I cant follow what youre saying. Your voice run together with everything you're saying. Youre like a robot. Get some passion man.

  • Matt Hew

    would this be good to pair with a ryzen 5 1600? also what the difference between the B350 Pro4 and B350 Fatality version?

  • Trimax Inventius

    Does the front audio panel works to you guys?

  • Doxuz

    So do you recommend this board or is there anyother B350 boards with similar prices and better in your opinion?

  • Giacomo De Vito

    how many fans connectors does it have? Thanks

  • TekTick

    Finally playing with AMD's Ryzen platform! 😊Any owners of it in da house? 🖥

  • Foxnet Utama

    I buy this mobo and make R5 1600x procie, but no output,..??? why?? must upgrade bios with another procie?? help me please. thanks.

  • The Weed Man

    So on the MOBO product page it says that for APUs it supports 2600 ram, but can I still use 3200+ ram?

  • Danish Baig

    No motherboard speaker pin?

  • alt411

    Hi again. I gave up on msi b350 tomahawk and got this one instead 'asrock fatality ab350 gaming k4'. Because on Newegg reviews for msi tomahawk b350 had 10 doa's including mine. also it'll take about 2 wks get a rma replacement so I got this instead. I'm so glad I did. Everything works perfectly right out of the box. It Overclocked very easily too. 3.9Ghz @ 1.35v stable. First I tried 1.3375v it booted into windows but was not stable. Anyway I noticed on this video you have ddr4 rams in A2+B1 Dimm slots. The manual was very confusing in regards to ram configuration. I have mine set up as: A2+B2. I was just wondering if mine is wrong and trying A2+B1 Dimm config instead. I can't get a-xmp ddr timing to go 2933. But instead only @2133mhz. It's qvl listed for this motherboard. It's corsair vengeance 3000 (2x8, total 16). Anyway I was just curious. I'll try Asrock forums and ask around.

  • yuriy yakimov

    Finally got this ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 motherboard, but yeah the manual is kinda confusing, when comes to set properly the RAMSI ended up putting my viper kit dual channel 2x4 gb , into the socket A2, B2I upgrade sucessfully my bios from 1.40 to latest 2.5 But it seems that when I activate the Xm 2.0 profile 1, the only option from my memories, it seems to slow down boot time, and my cpu fan start to: turn on/off automatically ... i have a my ryzen 5 1600... and tooks like... and when trying to activate the ddr 4 2133 mhz to 3200 with XMP 2.0 profile 1, that what it happens.. x.xSo i was wondering what can i do? should i overlock manually? does it worth the time, when comes to ryzen 5 1600?Anyway this are my specs.PC SPECS:EVGA GTX 580 NVIDIA 1.5 GBPSU: Thermaltake 775+bronce 80CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 RAM: Patriot Viper 3200mhz 2x4 GB model PV48G320ckCASE: Thermaltake v9 blackedition PS: Also I've notice a downgrade in sound performance, compared to my old intel H55m-e33, and i dont have gaming headset, wish i can find a way to improve the quality or boost the sound. Once again thanks Tektick :D

  • Trimax Inventius

    The real reason why sound was so bad, is really in the bad drivers. I have installed the latest one Realtek Audio Driver and everything's just fine.

  • Kiki Setiawan

    I have problem to my LAN, it's can't get an IP from DHCP Access Point, any help?

  • Phillipe Knopp Machado

    Does it REALLY support DDR4 2667Mhz ?


    Bet you kids nowadays don’t even know who fatal1ty is

  • Colo Sato

  • Silicon Nubian

    Pretty much identical board except for a few very small differences with the AB350 Pro 4. Great review btw.

  • alt411

    I ordered msi tomahawk b350 for my ryzen1700 but it came 'doa' so now i'm waiting on rma fr newegg. Now after watching this video asrock fatlity ab350 gaming k4 mobo sounds tempting. Should i call newegg customer service and get an exchange for this one instead. They both have alot of pros and cons. Uh! I don't know...what do you think? should I get this mobo instead of msi b350 tomahawk???

  • Fygas Lemeshianos

    Is it compatible with the tridentZ rams at 3200 mhz?

  • Kanagala Kartheek

    Hi , Have you tried installing linux like Ubuntu? . i see most current Ryzen motherborads dont support

  • IdontEven

    was about to make an order from newegg.. and it just had to be out of stock :'(

  • ficri hasan

    hey can oc to 3.9 on 1.350v on this mobo? thx

  • ess wasim

    Didn't come with one *

  • prlinjo

    I have this board and my RAM (Corsair 2x8 3000 MHz CMK16GX4M2B3000C15) with BIOS version 2.20 wouldn't go higher than 2133 MHz. Just flashed new BIOS version 2.50 and now it runs at 2933 without tampering with anything. I just selected the profile. So far so good!

  • Terry1212

    How about this motherboard along with a Ryzen 5 1600 and a GTX 980 for 1080p gaming?

  • Alexandru Ganea

    I have this mobo 2.20 bios and r5 1600, cpu-z and hwmonitor report me the vcore voltage at 2.342, this would no be possible. I'm not really use why it doesn't show the correct voltage. Ryzen Master is the only software which recognize the voltage set in bios.Any advice?

  • JJTalksGames

    Hey I bought a system that had this mobo already installed and I need to swap ram sticks, now I must be retarded but I can't get the sticks put any help?

  • Keyboard Warrior


  • Da Bishop

    I thought you could only crossfire with the 370 boards

  • Francisco Buitrago

    Ey, im thinking in buying this mobo, wich one you would choose? this one or the asus b350 prime plus? thanks!

  • Itz Icy

    I am brand-new to building PCs and I got a DOA motherboard at first, then I got a new motherboard and that one got fried during the bios update now I am hoping this one works... I hope this one works good! Awful luck for my first time building pcs! Very frustrating!!

  • Gurisa Yudistira

    Question: on the official page, it says "AMD Quad CrossFireX™" what is that supposed to mean? because on PPP it doesn't support CFX... I don't want to have 2 GPU anyway, just curious.EDIT: The CFX option didn't come out, my build is using R5 1500X.

  • Alexandre Vézina

    Should I get this board or the Pro4 or the Gigabyte Gaming 3? It is hard for me to choose a board and also ram for my new build.

  • ess wasim


  • Grigor Kosta

    Hi. Can you help me out regarding the audio speaker which beeps and notifies if something is wrong? I can’t find the slot for this 4 pin header speaker. Can you tell me we’re is located? Thanks.

  • Redaxe axe

    Can i fit a ROG STRIX-GTX1080-O8G on to it? i dont know whether if its suitable size.

  • Bagdadsky_Hornik

    well biggest disapointment for me (regarding this mobo) is that it has only 3 phases for CPU

  • Martin Varga

    please will this asrock mobo work with CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 red on 3200mhz? thank you.

  • Doxuz

    So i just bought this board and it doesnt come with M.2 screws too...

  • MrOne2watch
