    Nice! I just use speakers plugged into the front port and when i pull out my bluetooth earbuds the speakers automatically switch off

    Saw a post on Reddit yesterday of a guy who was trying to use an 8900 in an ITX case and it was hitting ram. Don't think it would work in the A300 unfortunately

    How does that free up a USB port?

    wesbl do you have plans to use the A300 motherboard in a different case? I have a CNPS8900 and would love to do the same. Only case I am aware of that fits are the Silverstone ones that have even less clearance than the OEM case

    SOC should be fine all the way up to 1.25v, especially since this board has good VRM cooling. I believe any time you use XMP or OC memory on ASrock AM4 boards above SPD it automatically increases to 1.2v. Only thing to be concerned about is that most boards seem to over-volt the 3400g when left...

    Don't feel too bad, my B450M Pro4 won't go over 3200 with any ram.... Tried 4 different kits. It also tried to kill my 3400g by running it up to 1.55v on auto. The 3400g does oc well though. Currently at 4.1 @1.35v and 1700 igpu @1.175v

    Are you running F4-3200C16D-16GRS or F4-3200C18D-16GRS?

    Techspot mentioned in their review similar results, even after enabling PBO and Auto OC it never hit 4.2. https://www.techspot.com/review/1878-amd-ryzen-3400g/ I've not messed with the VRM heatsink but I do have a spare mobo (B450m pro4) I can experiment with. Also have a couple of large CPU...

    ^I just tested this along with disabling Cool n quiet and am getting +100pts in 3dmark Sky diver and Night Raid, with 5-10C lower temps as well! Thanks for sharing!

    Group Buy/Crowdfunded Modded BIOS for the Asrock A300m (Deskmini A300)

    Count me in. I am running a 3400g with Gskill 3200 CL18 and would like GPU OC. Also I am hitting a wall at 3333 with RAM but I know for a fact this kit is stable at 3400.

    I am still trying to extract the best performance out of this setup. With tweaking memory subtimings at 3333 16-18-18-38 I was able to get over 13k in Sky Diver. https://www.3dmark.com/sd/5612875 -Has anyone been able to get RAM stable over 3333? -Anyone been able to successfully test PBO...

    Yes, smaller builds will always cost more and often perform slightly worse due to airflow and power limitations. If you want to OC a Ryzen APU you can easily do it with this cheap mobo and ram: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813157843...
