Please answer the poll only if you actually own and have used a Ryzen mobo. Please discuss your happiness with it.

I think the poll is fine. There would be too many mobos to list for the poll itself.

yup, the moderators have limited it to 7 poll entries. If you consider each mobo would make ~ 4 types for a socket (before another wave )... thats huge.


MSI Carbon X370 here. no issues

I had considered it manufacturer plus chipset, then thought that was too detailed. Each manufacturer probably has the same BIOS update policies and basic BIOS anyway, regardless of chipset.

Your poll is a call for misleading statistics, watch out with it.

By asking the m/b manufacturer and only boards in use, you may endup thinking the best one will get the more answer and pickup this one.
While your poll would in real won't reveal what you want:
- It would shown the more popular m/b maker or seller
- Or the cheapest board (that is another good reason to get popular)
- the more boards models a manufacturer has done for AM4 increase chance someone own one from this manufacturer.
- People having no specials issues use the board, people that were having huge issues with a board, might have already switch to another board, maybe even from the same manufacturer.

It's not because X or Y sells the more m/b that the m/b is the best one, it's not because m/b maker X has made a poor board that all its boards are poor, it's not because m/b Z is popular that it's the best board...

Anyway, you're not doing it right if you want use that poll to buy a m/b for an AM4.
As a blind example, even without the poll end, it's a bit logical that you will certainly endup with more Asus and MSI than Asrock, while Asrock is known for low prizes, they also have reputation of low quality ; and asking what board anyone own in a geek forum, will certainly gave way more Asus and MSI than Asrock. But this won't answer the quality of any AM4 board made by Asrock, just that Asus/MSI are more popular in geek's eyes.
Another example: if two guys use an Asrock model X that is 10% defective, and 100 guys use an Asus board that is 1% defective, you will probably endup with 1 complain against Asus, and none against the Asrock.

krinn,

Thank you for your concern. I'm interested in exactly the question posed, what mobo's do Gentoo users actually use. I wouldn't expect it to be a measure of quality, else a similar poll for cars wouldn't include Ford, for instance.

I'm rather disappointed in only two responses. Of course, nothing can be gained from two responses, but I would have expected more Gigabyte responses than MSI, based on Gigabyte general popularity and the huge number of models they offer.

The ultimate hope was to see if complaints were localized to one or more manufacturers.

Your post is well taken. Over the years, I have often read that Asus is best, yet people that I personally know seem to have a lot of trouble with Asus. Maybe, Asus is just too tweakable. If a mobo offers few options, then it is more likely to work out of the box, albeit at lower performance. Also, MSI seems very aggressive in their marketing for AM4, yet seemed almost dead in the Intel/bulldozer world.

non-HMES compliant

in all fairness a better option would have been the supporting chipset or a google poll where you can type in a lot more information. I might make one shortly

I got an ASUS PRIME X370-A, and it's been at least okay so far.

I need to send my Ryzen away though, so I haven't gotten too many days worth of testing on it.

Initially it had a bit of a hard time booting with RAM at 3200 MHz (booting itself repeatedly a few times), but after updating the BIOS, it was fine.

The ethernet controller would drop the link down every 1 to 15 minutes or so, and get back up after 3 seconds, but that stopped after the BIOS update as well (not entirely sure if it happened because of said update, however).

A bit of a quality nit: one of the RAM retaining clip thingies feels loose, or more loose at least compared to the others. That is, it feels too light when moved between the open and closed positions.

I also had one freeze/lockup, possibly (hopefully) related to this: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196683
