Initial issues but running fine now
The manual for this board says that if it says "AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop ready" on the front of the box, then you should be able to drop a 3rd gen Ryzen CPU in and be good to go.

Also the board came with onboard graphics disabled by default. I don't know if that was related to the BIOS issue or not, but be aware of that if you are tryinng to set up a new machine without a graphics card.
Once up and running, the board has (so far) been running well. But due to frustration c...view more
