What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASRock AB350M MicroATX Motherboard
  • Good quality am4 board for your Ryzen build I highly recommend.
  • Great motherboard for a budget Ryzen build, had no issues with it for 9 months now.
  • Great motherboard for Ryzen processors. mATX form make it great for small builds.
  • With it being a microATX board some of the cables from the case can be difficult to attach.
  • It is a mATX form factor meaning when using a mid or full tower ATX case you do have to move so standoffs.
ASRock AB350M PRO4 MicroATX Motherboard
  • I have it paired with a Ryzen 5 1600 and I've never seen any instance of freezing or crashing.
  • R5 1600 at 4.0Ghz really performs well on this board.
  • Works straight out of the box with my Ryzen 5 1600. mATX looks sweet inside the case too.
  • Brilliant little board. Great value for money if you are looking for a mATX.
  • Favourite looking of the mATX Ryzen boards, performed very well.

What customers say about "Memory"
ASRock AB350M MicroATX Motherboard
  • Running ddr4 2400 and 3000 mhz. No issues with any components or accessories.
  • Nice little board with support up to 32Gb of ram which is 100% enough.
  • Never use more that 2 sticks of ram, so this card has completely satisfied me.
  • There is only 2 ram slots and max ram of 32 Gb.
  • The only downside I can think of being that it can only hold two sticks of ram.
ASRock AB350M PRO4 MicroATX Motherboard
  • Runs RAM without problems while has 3200 MHz Patriot Viper DDR4 running at full speed without doing anything more than selecting the XMP profile.
  • Fantastic Board for the price, 4 ram slots and up to 64Gb of ram.
  • I use 16gb with 2 sticks and I'm very glad that I can upgrade it with 2 more sticks.
  • I have to underclock my RAM by 800MHz to get anything stable and even then, it randomly crashed and freezes.
  • Challenging issues is with RAM speed. Using Corsair RAM, which is rated to 3000MHz, I can only get a stable clock at 2400MHz.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASRock AB350M MicroATX Motherboard
  • It has more usb 3.0 ports than I'll probably ever need but that's a good thing really.
  • I use the ethernet port and it works fine, so you don't need an extra card unless you're using WiFi.
  • Very happy with the board especially considering the usb ports and memory support.
  • Great motherboard for price and has all the connections that you may ever need.
  • This doesn't have display ports on rear Io so won't work with Ryzen Apus.
ASRock AB350M PRO4 MicroATX Motherboard
  • Choice of M.2 SATA/PCIe gives you choice when buying SSDs.
  • Great featured motherboard, also has NVMe port built in. ‘PRO4’ is the way to go.
  • USB 3 header is on the right near the SATA ports, so the USB3 case cable isn't trailing all over.
  • No reaction to keyboard/mouse connected via PS/2 ports.
  • Only one disappointing gripe is limited M.2 slots.

What customers say about "Features"
ASRock AB350M MicroATX Motherboard
  • Very nice motherboard. It is unlocked this means it has the ability to overclock which is done with ease.
  • The uefi (or bios) is very nice to use especially in areas such as overclocking.
  • Handles everything you throw at it and has a nice easy to understand bios.
  • Haven't tried overclocking my cpu yet, but the bios is good and I enabled xmp on my ram very easily.
  • Is a great motherboard, not much else to say but its just wonderful, updating bios was a breeze and overclocking was even easier.
ASRock AB350M PRO4 MicroATX Motherboard
  • Was very easy to set up and overclock. Being not a pro in this, easily overclocked to 5.9 GHz on my processor.
  • Great motherboard. Overclocking friendly was the big sell for me.
  • I found this very easy to build a good PC with. It is great quality and the colour scheme is great.
  • Nice black and white colour scheme and goes well with my other components.
