I have a pair of HD5450's, problem is that one of them is in the Minecraft server! Will see if i can pick up a third cheaply
With the lack of the disply, so people are really forced to used a CPU without the built-in GPU, I also have the Gigabyte, and I like it alot, but was thinking of pickup the Asus's one, but heard that AMD are to be releasing a X470 chipset, so i'll probably wait for Asus to upgrade to the new X470 first.@confusis Very good overview of the offerings we have for AM4 on mITX, thank you for this Will you be covering the ASUS board(s)? I see they decided to drop the display out for whatever reason, so that's quite an obvious con. I am curious about the VRM temperature though, as I have the Gigabyte one currently and it's a problem, even with the stock flower-style cooler blowing a little air over it (although it's hot air). I also see they're taking a big premium for them, so I hope they have the feature-set and build quality to back that up. Not that I'm super dissapointed with the Gigabyte offering or anything, it's served me well enough, although I wish they had dual BIOS chips, since I was foolish enough to update the BIOS via their windows utility and promptly bricked the board. Waiting for my replacement now.
Would be nice if manufacturers offered us a no-compromises type board at some point, even the ASUS one seems to lack in features (most notably the lack of display out), I'd be more than willing to pay a premium for a premium board. Perhaps with the release of X470. I hope.
Thanks, and probably the most detailed comparision review.
I have the Gigabyteand I do like the layout, using it a N case, just couldn't wait for asus's offerring, although I do want the asus's one more, but got the gigabyte.
I have a few question about the gigabyte MB, in their site they do say that it has intergrated display process GPU, but many has said you need a seperate GPU or APU, so what is the problem here, even the shop I purchased it say it does, but it can't be used, so is gigabyte misleading people on this. At present i'm using the AMD Radeon Pro WX3100 for GPU.
Another question is about the temp on the wholes MB, mainly the CPU, Chipset, system, VSOC MOS, VRM MOS. as I mainly just use the PC, and don't really take note on the temp, just want to know are these temp normal for my setup.
VSOC MOS 45c
VRM MOS 45c
For the above, what are the usual maximum temp they can reach. For me it's browsing, watching films and BT downloading, no games what so ever.

Hello! This is my first post here! I Have been reading everything I can and can say there is a lot of great information here. But alas, I need help.
A brief background, I would consider myself a mid range experienced builder. Having built approx 20 systems in the last 12 months for work. And have completed several custom builds including a few mATX and mITX.
Ok, my problem is system instability on my most recent build.
Lian Li PC05SX
Ryzen 5 1600x
Geil 2666 16GB
Corsair MP500 NvMe
Gigabyte Vega 56 Gaming OC (2 fan)
EVGA CLC 240
I have the 140mm spot on case occupied to pull air out. Have 240mm AIO pulling in from top (trying to get some air over VRM). My problem is this-- After some heavy loads (average ~10 mins), screen goes black, and GPU fans go to 100%. I've modified fan curves to keep idle CPU 23C, Idle GPU 41C, full load CPU 41C, full load GPU 67C. This is with current BIOS, all drivers updated, fresh window install, front glass on or off. Ram running at factory 2133. I get the exact same results with an Aorus RX580 and corsair vengeance 16gb ram. So, I have ruled out the GPU and RAM. I'm leaning towards mobo.
I'm out of ideas, please help!!!!
