Reviews
Gigabyte AB350-GAMING 3, AMD B350, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), Realtek LAN, USB 3.1 A, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level gaming board for Ryzen. Make sure you upgrade bios to F5. Stable 3200MHz memory overclock using Corsair Vengeance CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 at 1.4v which I reduced to 2933MHz at 1.3v to be on the safe side. Ryzen 1700 is modestly overclocked to 3.4MHz without increasing voltage. No crashes. Over 1500 on Cinebench. Over 50fps at Very High on Ghost Recon with GTX970. Good build quality and features. Also, AMD Ryzen Master works with this board which lets you overclock without having to access bios.
