    Yeah I think i made a mistake. All good just ordered a MSI X470 only the wait without a working PC sucks ass. No post system back till Tuesday in QLD. So a good week before I get it.

    The B450s can't come soon enough, it's too hard to tell if a 3xx board comes with a 2xxx compatible bios.

    I'm planning a few basic APU builds for family members still running core 2 and athlon systems, again when ram and SSD prices settle a little. Thier current systems are all fairly loud and use mechanical drives with old dedicated graphics so a 2200G with a basic SSD should be a massive improvement.

    Will we see a B420 ?
    Should be perfect with a 22/2400G and 8g ram

    I hope not as the price difference between b350 and a320 is like $15, the saving isn't worth it when you can overclock those CPU's on a cheap 350/450.

    My folks wont be overclocking, and seeing as how I'm funding the build, ever dollar saved is worth it
    Maybe the b350 becomes the low end of a tiered set of chipsets ?

    So I'm considering replacing a N36L/8GB Microserver with a proper system to replace my NAS (mostly because MySQL performance on the Neo2 processor is uhh... woefully insufficient) - how do people feel Ryzen (3 or 5) would be for a Linux storage/personal dev server? Or am I better off getting an i5 or Xeon?

    Edit: Nevermind, a bit of research tells me I'm probably at least twice better off with a mid-spec i5.

    Well, storage performance and sql database performance are two of the areas where the Meltdown fix performance reduction for Intel CPU's hits hardest.

    If power consumption is a consideration then i wouldnt look at an i5
    X86 anything isnt going to be super low power
    I wonder how newer arm soc goes for your needs ?

    So MSI X470 board was a complete POS. RMA'ing (system fans stopping randomly, fill every USB port and Windows BSOD) power issues? I got a beastly PSU Though and it works perfect with my old Intel and also the X370 board.
    Throw back in the X370 with bios update and everything runs super sweet and OC nicely with 2600X Not interested in an X470 replacement.

    Suspected the x470 was a lame effort by AMD to recoup expenditure on this chipset.

    Also as usual you need to wait up to this time period NEXT YEAR, for some firmware updates to see if anything has been corrected.

    I'm still keeping all my X370's and B350's simply because they have the features I want, particularly the use of "HDMI 2.0" which isn't being supported at all, by the X470 series.

    How unfortunate that AMD dropped the ball on this latest release, without offering any real upgrades.

    You get what you pay for. Friends don't let friends buy MSI boards.
