    Bizarre that the B350 is the only one missing, I wonder what the reason is.

    Mostly the BIOS ROM size I would imagine.

    The cynic in me says that the reason is that was the most popular chipset.

    Is the 350 smaller than the 320? That'd be odd no?

    IDK dude. The only other thing I can think of is that some 350 boards may have weak fets? isn't overclocking disabled on 320?

    I remember reading that 300 series boards (at least some of them) were a bit crap. Mostly because no one actually trusted AMD to bother enough to make really good boards. So there were plenty of stinkers. That said surely the 5000 series use less power than the 1000 series?

    Gawd knows.

    Could be, just seems a bit odd doesn't it?

    Another mystery for the ages.

    I am praying for "not to be fooled" but I ordered a Ryzen 7 5800x from China for 104 euros (second hand)

    Here's hoping it isn't a Phenom chip with a Ryzen logo silk-screened on it.

    :hehe: haha yes, these kind of things happen, but I bought a Ryzen 3600 xt from China 2 years ago, it came with a twisted pin but I managed to fix it and it works great, I shall see ... otherwise I'll just ask for payback :worried:
    But the trick is...I realise it today, I guess there was a mistake on this Aliexpress ad, I checked it again a moment ago and it is a different price actually:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100...o2fra&spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.21ef5e5bDUJMs5

    The ad is the same, the proc is sold wether with or without a MB, (Asus B450 TUF), but first time I visited it, the prices were splitted and the proc was sold at the price of the MB and vice versa :grin:, but now the prices have been corrected and it's corresponding better to the reality...
    Thing is, I already purchased with the wrong price and my order receipt shows that:

    Sorry to say you’ve ordered a motherboard. Just above the price, you can see the motherboard been selected.
