I don't have a Ryzen CPU but I've researching for my own purchase. I would stay away from ASUS . They don't honor their warranties. I have come to the conclusion that I will be buying the Gigabyte Aorus Master X570.

I'm pretty sure I have a brand new MSI ATX PC Mate motherboard. I didn't need it and never returned it. I may have opened the anti-static bag but it's never had a CPU or RAM installed. If interested, I'll take what it cost me ($115.00) plus shipping.
