Had some problems with the I/O shield and some USB ports, but other than that, it looks amazing and it gets the job done. Also, the yellow highlights match my KRK Rokit 5 speakers amazingly. I didn't even mean for that to happen.

So happy Microcenter had this in stock. I got $30.00 off plus a $20.00 mail-in-rebate with this. It looks badass and the Bios is super easy to navigate, although I've never really had experience with any other bios so take that with a grain of salt. After reading all the horror stories online of so many people getting DOA boards for their builds I was so happy when this Booted on its first try. Overclocking was simple, just followed Asus video on youtube.
Also, so happy this thing isn't just black and red like all the other B350 motherboards. This thing looks badass.

I compiled a list of 27 boards that were compatible with the Ryzen but were either mini or micro. Since I wanted a smaller system, I did not want a full-size ATX. Of those only 6 had the minimum features I wanted: 4 DIMM slots, M2-ready & Gen 2 USB ports. Of these, only 2 did not have terrible reviews on NewEgg. I chose the TUF because of good reviews. There were no problems with installation of all of the parts, except the bios was incompatible with the Ryzen 2600x, so had to be flashed. I took off 1/2-star for that.
The other problem is likely just a problem with micro-boards. If I put the GPU (Gigabyte 1050 Ti) in one slot, it covers the PCIE 2.0 x1 slot, meaning, you can't use it. However, if I put the GPU in the second slot, it crushes some of the connections, and I can't set the USB-to-chassis connection at all. So you have to choose which one you don't want to use. I took another 1/2-star off for that.
Otherwise, everything seems great so far. The ASUS system-monitoring software seems nice.

The best micro ATX for first Ryzen CPU gen. With the previous GA-AB350M-Plus Gaming the games stutters more. Now with this the stutter is less. The highest temp of the VRM are 60° under heavy load, stressing the CPU with Aida 64 or Prime 95.
