from completed build $1200 Budget - Networking GNS3 lab study and Gaming Fun
I was going to use the MSI B350 Tomahawk but the MSI X370 Gaming Plus was only a few bucks more and it had Red LEDs. It works fine, I updated to the latest bios but the LEDs are not really anything special. I made sure to pair the MB with memory on the qualified list to get 3200mhz. So far, so good.

Better than the B350M this replaced, no complaints at all, does what it needs to do and does it well.

from completed build Ryzen 7 1700 OC at 3.9 with a Red Devil RX580
This Motherboard has so many options. It is best to know what it comes with ....If I had known about the M.2 SSD turbo options. I would have made a different decision about my boot drive. Also with the ability to up grade in the future with extra memory slots up to 64 GB and ability to go crossfire if you need too. Plus the Graphics PCI port is fortified to make sure the heavier video boards like mine do not end up bending the PCI port making it loose and unresponsive in the future. Easy to use Bios if your not a Super wiz....can give you added power without being a total number cruncher on the OC.

from completed build Black & Red: AMD fanboy
I got myself a MSI X370 Gaming Plus. It's so pretty, has a tonne of IO options and probably way too over the top for anything I will use it for but it is almighty pretty and cool as hell. The post time is really long for some reason, I don't see why? But still, shite tonne of utilities built into it too. Just the post screen taking it down on my rating.

from completed build My first PC build r7 1700+GTX1080=1450$ 2 year laters Updated Review
Newegg after rebate 109.99. Features are good, supports all my fans along with sata gpu cpu ram speeds. However before install or after, I say before a install of windows, update bios with most recent file from support online, via M-Flash usb. I was a noob and this took me about 5 mins of research not even. Bios was easy to understand, watch videos from newegg or where ever for this educational bit and bob. Afterwards ram settings and overclocking via bios are absolutely easy, this system with easy one click set up just read up on how to use the programs and overclock. My benchmarks for this are above average. Not to mention the complete support to pulse red my system LEDs everywhere. MSI didn't give me any stickers with any of my content which they should of cause man did they win big. <2 years later bios drivers from amd or msi help keep this machine smooth silky smooth. Also have bios ready for 3rd Gen Ryzen 3600 and 3700 series. I still am rocking my r7 1700 O.C. 3.6 across all 8 cores.

Does the job; looks great, performs great and has an easy enough bios to work with. Only issue is there are no LEDs on it that light up before the PC is powered on so there isn't a way of checking if the motherboard is receiving power or not.

Well built, looks great. No problems so far. The bios was kind of hard to navigate, however, and the SATA ports are in a really wierd arrangement, going from top middle, bottom middle, then the same for the left, then the right. Not a problem just weird. Steel reinforced PCIEx16 slots felt a little weak. The aesthetic is great, but the placement of the LEDs sit right below where a graphics card would be and in a crossfire/sli rig they would be almost, if not entirely, blocked.

from completed build Black with Red RGB Lighting/Ryzen 5 1600 paired with GTX 1060 Build
As mentioned in my description for my Black/Red LED build, this motherboard had an issue with the first PCIe lane. It would not accept the graphics card in the first slot and I had to stick it in the second slot even though the manual says to use the first slot. I had to tick off one star for this. Otherwise, everything works like it should I especially enjoy the way the BIOS is set up to be very easy to use. There are four pin connectors for fans which I used every single one in my build. Four memory lanes, some very subtle red LEDs, and RYZEN FTW! lol. Don’t expect any RGB craziness only RGB support as I was not able to change the color at all even after the RGB strips I have installed. One last thing is that my graphics card seems to sag a bit which annoys me a little but nothing I can’t live with. Good board for its money, I think one of my PCIe lanes was defective. Minor issue unless I wanted multi GPUs.
