    In a nice compact form factor, ASUS has added the TUF B350M-PLUS GAMING motherboard for the AMD Ryzen series processors. The TUF motherboard is based on the AMD B350 chipset for Socket AM4....

    Poor Placement of PCI E X 1 Slot. wont be able to use PCI E X 1 and PCI E X 16 together.

    agree with you Wasif also you can't use dual slot card on the last PCIe with mATX chassis... so you will have to use ATX one... and so the relevance of having a mATX board do like ice cream at 12h in sahara...

    but ok around 80% of mATX finish in ATX chassis or with only 1 sister card plugged in...

    Well it depends of the case. There are many mATX cases where there's enough room below the mobo.

    But in any case nice to see more competitors at AM4 matx market. Still waiting for motherboard with 12 phases, even 9 would be nice. Put that together with USB 3.1 (Gen 2) and proper audio chip and you can have my cash. :)

    I don't understand what's going on with motherboard manufacturers for AM4. They're all being so dumb and this board just adds to the list of "unnecessary products". They keep releasing basically the exact same thing but with a very slight twist that nobody asked for. Take MSI for example: search for new socket AM4 ATX boards on Newegg and you'll get thirteen boards to choose from. That's just ONE brand. Meanwhile, they have no ITX boards. There isn't a single brand that does a proper X370 micro ATX board, and yet Biostar and Asrock waste the chipset on ITX? I don't understand why it's so difficult to just make a unique coherent product.

    At the very least, give us a PCB color other than black or gray...

    I don't understand why manufacturers continue to do this poor placement of PCIe slots.
    Almost all GPU's are dual slot, why place a pciex1 right bellow the pciex16? I see this in so many motherboards and it's useless, you could place the SSD there or leave it empty. It's hard to chose a motherboard with a decent layout.

    Too true to fool Schmidtbag!
    i'd hop on an x370 mATX so fast the case screws would still be spinning.
