    Check out our latest AMD X370 and Ryzen motherboard review, the gorgeous MSI X370 KRAIT Gaming. This more affordable Ryzen motherboard is just that, funky, wrapped in an awesome look and feel the moth...

    Some of the stuff that is written here, that you are reusing from previous reviews and articles would deserve some update/correction.
    On page 2 in the last sentence of the first paragraph you are writing about engineering sample comparison, while we all know you already tested and can compare proper units.
    On the same page in the last paragraph you are writing about „chatter on the street“ that AMD is gonna introduce 16/32 core processors, but they already did introduce Threadripper.
    On page 3 you are writing that there is native USB 3.0 support, but on the pictures there is shown that they support USB 3.1 Gen 2 natively. (3rd paragraph)
    On hardware used page u list Corsair 3000 MHz but on the memory testing page u write about Geil 3200 MHz.

    Also a small question, did you test Tomb Raider with the latest Ryzen patch ?

    Otherwise great review as always. Thank you.

    Cheers, the default chipset page was indeed reused, all fixed.

    For memory, I always try multiple memory sets to see how the board reacts to different brands of memory. Sometimes we start with the GEIL kit but end with the Corsair or a GSKILL kit. But this review was indeed done with the GEIL kit, so I will change that on the sys-info page.

    As to you last question, yes the new patch was used for TR.
