Is there any way the board will come in stock anytime soon?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_JosephF admin July 2020 Hello @qwertybosso I apologize we have not been able to keep the B550 in stock. We do carry the B550 in different brands and models but with recent demand, it has been difficult for us to keep them in stock.  At the time I am writing this, I see that we have 4 different B550 boards in stock at the Brooklyn store.

Especially since everything in it is fairly new. It's an Asrock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 with 64GB 3600 ram an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 core CPU. Then I ran Ashampoo free windows 11 compatibility check and discovered I needed The TPM chip imbedded in the Motherboard. Now my anger was redirected towards Asrock. I went to their website to complain and the first thing I saw was and add-on TPM module. I don't know if it was available from Asrock, but when I searched The Microcenter Website they don't have it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_JosephF admin August 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/9232/asrock-motherboard-and-tpm-module I 'm sorry, this is not something we carry. You can check your BIOS as sometimes TPM is disabled or set to discrete by default. If you switch it to enabled or firmware then this should solve your problem. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sevenx7 ✭✭ August 2021 How to get this working in my bios is clear as mud. I'll probably get it eventually. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sevenx7 ✭✭ August 2021 I've got secure boot enabled in bios but I'm still being told TPM 2.0 module is not available so I cannot install Windows 11. I'm thinking this latest Microsoft virus called Windows 11 is not going to be a big hit with the general public. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin August 2021 edited August 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/35104#Comment_35104 Keep in mind Windows 11 is not officially released yet. There is a possibility Microsoft will remove the TPM 2.0 requirement. I would not worry about it for now until we are closer to the official launch. Worst case scenario, you may just need to purchase that TPM directly from ASRock. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin August 2021 @Sevenx7 This system should support TPM.

Lateral Rockville ✭ November 2020 in CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards ASrock is very well known to geeks as a great motherboard company which is true and they are winning the motherboard market. A couple months ago, the B550 series was released to everyday consumers from companies like Asus and ASrock at first. EVERYBODY is say EVERYBODY was buying them , but, ASrock was getting more pre-orders and orders then other companies. They were blowing up from their Steel Legends and M Pro4 AM4 series. But not only from the B550s but also from the older ones, the B450s which lowered in price and became ideal to the budget/broke gamers which they paired with the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 and that made a very very good combo. Then people started to overclock their Ryzens and found out that, guess what, overclocking was a bit better/easier on ASrock motherboards! This news spread out on the internet and even more people bought ASrock motherboards. Nowadays, ASrock is as large as MSI and is growing FAST. Thanks for reading this! Hope to see you in my "How Ryzen is taking over the processor market." 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Looking to pair the B450 with Ryzen 3 3200G. Says BIOS needs to be updated with prior processor. Is this accurate? what if you don't have an old CPU laying around? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin November 2020 Hello @TWM This is correct as the 3rd Gen Processors were released after the B450 Chipset came out.  Some B450 motherboards MAY need a BIOS update to work with a 3rd Gen Ryzen Processor.  The common way of updating the BIOS is using an old generation and installing the updated BIOS.  Some motherboards, but not all, have a BIOS Flash option that can install a new BIOS without a processor.   You can try contacting AMD to see if they can send an older processor for the BIOS update, I do believe they have a program for doing this.   We do have a service at Micro Center for updating the BIOS for $29.99.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TWM ✭ November 2020 Ah ok thank you.

Samuel_P ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 in Help Choosing Parts Hello, I'm picking parts for a computer, and I wasn't sure if this motherboard/memory combination would work at full speed (not O.C.). The QVL on ASRock's website lists a kit that is the same, but it is a 32gb stick instead of two 8gb sticks. I just want to be sure before I buy. Also, how many extra fans do I need to buy to keep it cool? (The H510 case comes with 2 fans) Here is the link to the build: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=4ca5e011-7816-4770-b1ec-a6bb73101cf3 If you see any other problems with it, let me know. Thanks! :) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answers TSPhillipT admin June 2021 Answer ✓ Hello @Samuel_P QVL list is a list of RAM that the lab of the manufacturer had access to, so it doesn't need to be on that list for that RAM to work, and I would be surprised if it didn't. You should be good on RAM. Build wise, everything looks good! No major changes I would make for the build, with my only issue being an aesthetics one. mATX motherboard will look sorta smallish on the PC, but it's only a visual issue haha. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 2021 Answer ✓ @Samuel_P just chiming in. The B550 is a good board and you can get the bundle with it. Just make sure you choose a AM4 cpu. If you are looking at more fans, it depends on your computer usage and how you need your pc to perform. If you are doing regular gaming, fornite, COD, etc., you're fine with 2 FANS. If you are planning to do video rendering, etc., than you may want to look at more fans and the cooling fan for you CPU. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin June 2021 Answer ✓ Hello @Samuel_P We don't have knowledge for when we will restock graphics cards. They do however sell out almost immediately and we do recommend coming to the store as much as possible for the best chance of getting a card. You can definitely try coming to the store and speaking to sales consultants as they may know if a shipment is coming however they usually do not know what is on that shipment specifically. It is entirely possible a shipment of items come in but none of them are Graphics Cards but just other stock. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Samuel_P ✭ June 2021 Thanks! I could replace the motherboard with a normal ATX board: https://www.microcenter.com/product/625300/asrock-b550-pro4-amd-am4-atx-motherboard Do you think that is worth the extra money? I also can't get the motherboard and processor bundle with that one. . . Also, do you think I will need more than 2 fans (1 intake, 1 exhaust)? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Samuel_P ✭ June 2021 Thanks! One more thing (kind of unrelated), but what is the best change of me getting that 3060? I'm already doing the newegg shuffle (hasn't gone very well :/ ), and I live 40 minutes away from the Tustin Microcenter store, so I can't go there everyday. I was thinking of just going there once and asking when they expect a shipment, will that work? I've already read through all the voucher stuff and the limited availability products articles. And there's no way I'm paying scalper prices; I'm already slightly overbudget due to tariffs. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

By default most motherboards will run DDR4 at 2133 or 2400 until you enable the XMP setting anyway. The advertised speeds on the memory are just what the manufacturer is stating it will reliably run at if the rest of your hardware can as well. The board manual is stating what the maximum supported frequency of the memory is in those configurations. Now that doesn't mean you can't run the memory at higher speeds than those configurations listed, but you'll be overclocking and there's no guarantee of stability if you do push higher speeds. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Greg_D4791 ✭ January 2021 edited January 2021 in General Discussion I feel like my PC needs a Bios Flash. I have issues that the service department has not been able to resolve. I have a constant POST Solid LED DRAM "red" when resuming from sleep only, the only work around is to put it into Hibernation only or restart. My CPU seems to be undervolting in the BIOS. I have frequent Boot loops requiring a Hard restart. I have a false positive detection of MIC if front panel detection is toggled off. I show Bluetooth adapter as Disconnected Both in System Properties and The system info screen for adapters in Windows even when I have Live connections. I have tried entering different sleeps.  The problem: Asrock did not Manufacture this board it is an OEM hence the "AC" Variant. Microcenter does not possess or support in their library the current Bios. As Such since the Board is not made By Asrock, Asrock Does not Support the BIOS. I have done some research as the team at my local Microcenter has been unable to resolve these same issues on two service appointments.   I have found that with some research some indication that an FTP site "iBUYPOWER" Does have the current Bios. vs 1.21a and for informational and opinion I will provide links to this Motherboard. Here is the link to the Site and the File and the discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/ASRock/comments/kkt1j9/z390_phantom_4sac_issuesquestions/ Please help, Thank you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin January 2021 Hello @Greg_D4791 thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. The G434 should have a Asrock manufactured motherboard. If your system can still boot into windows, follow the instructions and video below to validate the motherboard that is inside your system. Let us know if it is an Asrock board per the CMD results. It sounds like there could be an issue or defect with the motherboard. A bios update is a troubleshooting option to see if it fixes your issue, but it could be the board. You should have a warranty on the system if its within a year from purchase. Link: Use the links below to entering commands into Command Prompt to find out what motherboard is actually installed. Video Instructions Go to Search, type cmd, and open Command Prompt.

Problem That I am hearing from Asrock is that because it is an "ac" variant, they do not support BIOS for it, in fact the Motherboard is not on their site at all. After trying to communicate that with Asrock and Microcenter they say the board has no BIOS either in the Microcenter Index, Nor the Asrock website. I am guessing this is the OEM factor. Asrock specifically stated to not use any BIOS Flash from their website for this board. I am in fact trouble shooting. According to Microcenter, Powerspec  AsRock OEM Uses a CUSTOM Bios, that includes splash screens etc. I found a BIOS for the board but I do not like to mess with BIOS unless I feel like something is wrong. I.E. The above issues. Thank you for the response. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Greg_D4791 ✭ January 2021 UPDATE BIOS REVISION 1.21a Corrected EVERY problem/issue I had. Thanks.

Bought this board last month and have found that this header on the motherboard seems to be defective.  Any 5v ARGB cable I try to plug into it (accessory/ 5v LED strip, fan, hub/controller) is loose/wobbly and any connected devices do not light up properly.  It only lights up Yellow/Green/Blue and appears to be "breathing".  When I connected the LED strip, only the first 3 LED lit up and each one was one of the three colors that a fan lit up with (1- Yellow/2 -Green/3 -Blue).  I've been searching the entire internet for the last few weeks so I know that almost all RGB firmware/software is atrocious.  That said, I have carefully followed all of the regular steps to try and diagnose/resolve the issue via configuration and updates with no luck.  I tried configuring through the BIOS instead of Polychrome, reflashed the firmware (latest and BETA versions), plugged and unplugged / rebooted in all kinds of orders.  Nothing has helped. Is this an RMA type defect?  Am I doing something wrong?  Anyone else with this board have this same issue?  I've never had to return or RMA anything so not sure how it works because when I went to the ASRock site, I see this message "ASRock provide 1 year warranty service to Authorized Distributor, users should refer to the retailer or original vender RMA & Refund policy."  Then on the Microcenter site, I see this: Return or exchange timeframes Eligible return or exchange timeframes are from the date of purchase: 15 calendar days Motherboards Does this mean I am stuck with something that doesn't work because I didn't realize it until after the first 15 calendar days? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSTonyV admin August 2020 Answer ✓ Ah okay, I did have that backwards. Looking around online I can't seem to find anybody who has reported this specific issue with this board. Hard to say if it's just a defect and you got unlucky with a couple of bad boards in a row, or if it's an actual design flaw for these.  If you'd like, I can get a message to the managers at your local store to see if they might be willing to let you exchange it for a different board. I can't promise anything since it is outside the return period, but it never hurts to ask.  5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSTonyV admin August 2020 I looked up your email address and I found two purchases for a B450M Pro4, one from June and one from August. I assume you're referring to the one from June.  As far as the warranties are concerned, you'll want to contact ASRock directly. We cannot perform replacements for their products under their manufacture warranty. If the board is defective, they should replace it. There's very important line there after the one you mentioned that says "If experiencing difficulties in warranty service through your dealer or place of purchase, ASRock will attempt to resolve this issue." Basically what they're saying is "check with where you bought it first, see if they'll help, and if not we will." There's more than one RGB header on this board, have you tried all of them? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FritzG ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 Thanks Tony.  Yes, the one from June.  As far as trying the "other RGB headers"  the only unaccounted for header is a 12v header and so plugging in anything 5v into it is not only pretty hard to do (4 pins vs 3pin thing) but it would also fry whatever I connect to it (if not damage the board itself).  Not sure since I'm not a put the square peg in the round hole ... with a hammer kind of guy. - 1 x RGB LED Header *  (4 PIN,12v) - 1 x Addressable LED Header **  (3 PIN, 5v) - 1 x AMD Fan LED Header ***  (4 PIN, 12v) * Supports in total up to 12V/3A, 36W LED Strip ** Supports in total up to 5V/3A, 15W LED Strip *** The AMD Fan LED Header supports LED strips of maximum load of 3A (36W) and length up to 2.5M. Any other suggestions?  I was just going to toss the one from June in frustration and replace it with the new one but changed my mind when I literally just took one of the Touchaqua ARGB fans I have, the DRGB controller the 3 pack came with and an ARGB 5v LED strip I have and tried to plug them into the 5v header of the second board (unpowered).  Unfortunately, the same issue existed (loose/wobbly connection) so I didn't bother building it or plugging it in.  I just returned it.  Its such a hassle after 15 days but its my own fault for not validating every single part of the board in the first 15 days.  I decided to work through the issue instead (if possible before either selling the board as is or RMA'ing it).  Why I ended up here as well. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Yeah, the 3-pins are a little different so unless you specifically had a fan/controller for it then there's no reason to mess with it. I was primarily talking about the 4-pin RGB header and 4-pin AMD fan LED header.  These types of headers are standardized and having a fitment issue is rare, especially across multiple boards. I'd be inclined to believe it's something with the fan/controller you're using since the issue occurred with two different motherboards. Do you have another system with RGB headers you could try plugging them into? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FritzG ✭ August 2020 TSTonyV said: Yeah, the 3-pins are a little different so unless you specifically had a fan/controller for it then there's no reason to mess with it.

Do you have another system with RGB headers you could try plugging them into? You kind of got this backwards.  I ONLY have 5v 3-PIN fans/controller/LED strips.  I cannot use the 12v headers.  I only have one 5v header ... which is where the problem is.  I probably should have added this earlier. My 5v 3-PIN fans which have been proven to work perfectly using the external DRGB controller does not work when connected to the motherboard. My 5v 3-PIN LED strips from a different manufacturer have been proven to work perfectly using the external DRGB controller. The external DRGB controller can act as a pass-through (HUB mode) when connected to the motherboard and when I did that, it passed the issue on to any devices connected to the controller in HUB mode. I would have to say that it is most definitely the motherboard.  Chances of me getting two motherboards with the same issue from the same Micro Center?  Maybe it is a design flaw.  I am hoping someone else with this model of motherboard either has the same problem or has one that works.  Either way, I will know it isn't just mine. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FritzG ✭ August 2020 That would be very kind of you.  No expectations of anything.  Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FritzG ✭ September 2020 Just to tie off the post, I was contacted by a store manager regarding this (Thanks Tony).  The ending of the story is that I am stuck with the board/problem and my only recourse would be an RMA to the manufacturer.  I was told that manufacturers try to push their quality control customer service issues to resellers which is why the return window is so short (unspoken implication = so MicroCenter doesn't have to deal with that).  I always thought that any defective stock they received could be returned to the manufacturer as part of B2B sales.  Apparently, this is not the case with MicroCenter.  I guess they just take whatever the manufacturer sends them and pushes it out the door.  After 15 days, its your problem not theirs. I will most likely just deal with the problem until I upgrade my board. I don't trust the manufacturer to send me a "new" replacement board so better the devil I know. If I buy from MicroCenter again, I may just crack open whatever I buy right there in the store and check everything before I leave. This way, I don't have to rush at home to check it and then make another trip to return defective products sold in store within 15 days. I always try to support my local retailer when it makes sense to, but they don't make it easy.  Another option is to buy via Amazon Prime and get free returns for 30 days (+ if you count the amount of time you can get a credit instead of a refund).  Probably more of a risk to get gray market or used products sold as new but I can always send it back without running into a short, inconvenient return window.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 I know that in some situations we can extend the return period up to 30 days on motherboards from our end, but once it's past that only a manager in-store can make an exception and depending on the time frame and situation they may not always do it.

So, questions: 1.  Am I correct in seeing that the ASRock has a heatsink for its chipset and more fan headers than the ASUS? 2. I've read reports about the disparity in VRM between the two, in that the ASUS is a bit better? Is this a big deal? (Should note that I have no intention of overclocking) 3. This might be a little more subjective, but do their reputations matter? People swear by ASUS for their supposed higher quality and more well-built boards than ASRock, which I guess could be viewed as the redheaded step-sister of motherboard brands. The thing I care most is stability and durability. Which board is known to have BSOD issues vs being rock solid? I care a bit about VRMs because I want to be sure the CPU gets plenty of juice and not overheat either. I was leaning towards the ASRock because of the heatsink and extra fan headers, but I won't get it if it's known to be glitchy and troublesome. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

From the start I would randomly get "Thread stuck in driver" blue screens of death. I updated all the drivers using WinZip Driver Updater. That slowed the BSODs down a bit, but I still get at least one daily, just playing Minecraft. I found a discussion of the problem on this forum: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/720158/thread-stuck-in-device-driver-bsod-error-almost-daily/page-5 Out of the box it had BIOS 3.7 which they say had issues. Instead of downgrading, I upgraded to BIOS 4.0 which was released recently. The upgraded was successful, but after playing for less than 30 minutes, Minecraft crashed again with the same BSOD. What should I do? -e 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments ekloot ✭ December 2020 Hi, did you ever find a resolution to this problem?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin December 2020 Hello @Ernest we apologize for just now responding to your post. We have more resources now dedicated to Community Forum Posts. So we're now better able to reply to posts on the Forum. I'm not sure if you have found the answer to your BSOD errors. One thing you can do is update you Graphic card drivers. Seem like its giving a BSOD when playing a game which will increase your graphic card usage which could get you the BSOD when playing Minecraft. The drivers may need to be updated. Another area to look at is the motherboard chipset driver.  Looks like the Asrock a320M has a AMD Chipset Driver update. You could also download and install that chipset driver update as well. Make sure your windows is update as well. After looking at those few items mentioned above and it still gives you the BSOD. The last option would be to do a PC reset to reinstall windows internally or do a clean install of windows if you have a installation disk or USB. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ekloot ✭ December 2020 For anyone who needs this...we recently got the Powerspec B245 pc for my nephew that has this Asrock a320m HDV R4 motherboard and Ryzen 3400G CPU.  The first one we got quickly started having intermittent crashes/random reboots.  I tried about everything under the sun to resolve the problem including all the suggestions listed in the post above but nothing solved the problem.  I generally build my own PC's so I'm fairly experienced with these things fortunately.  Eventually though, I gave up and returned this system to Microcenter and exchanged it for another new one of the same model...thinking that maybe I just got a bad apple.  The new one seemed like it was fine for a day or two but then started having similar intermittent crashing issues as well...particularly when my nephew started playing Roblox on it, but also sometimes when he wasn't even playing any games.  If you look at the link that Ernest posted in the first post...there are a number of people in that thread with this same motherboard/cpu combination suffering from similar issues and the only way they solved it was by downgrading the bios on this motherboard from version 3.7 to 3.3 (as a side note, bios version 4.0 apparently doesn't solve the issues so don't bother trying to upgrade to that).  So after again trying a ton of the normal things to troubleshoot my nephew's pc crashing, I finally decided to go to the Asrock support site for this motherboard, download the 3.3 version bios, and followed their procedure for installing the older 3.3 version bios.  It's only been a couple days since we did this, but so far so good.  I think Microcenter should consider using a slightly better motherboard in this build which doesn't have these issues...but hopefully installing the older bios can solve any problems for current owners of this pc.  Also, an extra tip for anyone who plans to do any light gaming on this system (minecraft, fortnite, roblox, rocket league)...adding a second stick of matching ram will just about double your framerate in games because having a second stick of ram will automatically enable dual channel memory mode.  This effectively doubles your memory bandwidth which the integrated graphics really needs to be able to perform better.  This is true for any computer with integrated graphics...so long story short...if you're playing light games on a pc with integrated graphics, make sure to have 2 sticks of ram to get the best performance out of it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_CalebS admin January 2021 This is an issue on this motherboard, that effects some but not all of the units. The BIOS update fix is the correct, the issue does not occur on 3.30. We can and will provide a custom BIOS for our PowerSpec B245 and B244 upon request.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook IAAA ✭ January 2021 Also leaving a comment.  Also had this exact configuration with the 3400G and a320m-HDV 4.0.  Official model designation: Powerspec B245 R5-3400G/8/500/10P.  Downgrading the BIOS from supplied 3.7 to Asrock's 3.3 fixed the issue for me.   Just to provide context (and search string help), my son started having the problem with black screen restarts on Win 10 Minecraft (bedrock) and Minecraft Java.  Occasionally it took the form of a blue screen but overall it was black screen reset 90% of the time.  Took forever for me to see it b/c the particular usage combos were hard for him to repeat and it would be only during relatively light gaming.  Amazingly it didn't reset for Cinebench R20 or Furmark stress testing.  After tinkering I got it repeatable on Minecraft Java within 30 seconds of load.  (Loaded game, loaded server, then started moving around the area specifically to a place on the server where there were fewer people, jumping continuously.  This always resulted in a black screen.)  Tried changing the PSU and RAM: still crashed.  Reloaded Windows: still crashed.  Full system format and reinstalled Windows: still crashed.  Thinking I got a bad APU I sent it back to MicroCenter.  Twice.  They stress tested it and couldn't repeat the issue.  But it kept happening so they replaced the APU the second time.  I would have preferred a refund at that point but I had bought it more than 3 months prior.  Got it back after the APU replacement and it black screens AGAIN within 30 seconds using prior repeatable method.  This less than one minute after boot, external temp in the house is 22 C, processor never went past ~50 C.  No shorts, no weird power usage.  Well within nominal operational ranges.   At that point I went in to tinker with C-states and P-states.  Set C-state to C0 and forced P-state to stable 3700 MHz.  I was figuring that the board was sending some dirty voltages as it ramped up or down.  Still crashes.  Adjusted P-state down to 3200 MHz: still crashes.  Autoed C-state and P-state and forced voltage to never go past 1.35/1.30/1.25 volts: still crashes on all voltages, though harder to reproduce the lower the forced voltage.  Added another fan: still crashes.  Added beefier CPU cooling (spare Wraith Prism cooler): still crashes.  Upgraded BIOS to 4.0: still crashes.  Finally I downgraded the BIOS to 3.3 and no more crashes.  Operated this entire weekend without a crash and I couldn't repeat the issue.  Stress tests passed.  I have to give thanks to this forum post as I hadn't thought to downgrade BIOS until I read that here and in the link posted at the top.  I'm disappointed in the product.  I purchased a different PSU and RAM to eliminate variables, then lost four weeks of use while it was at the store before it was fixed via (what I considered) a long shot off a forum post.  I would have been happier overall just ordering something like a b450m and replacing the board as was my first inclination back in October.  Overall I can't recommend this particular unit as the issue is board level and the fix methodology is beyond a normal user. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook whatsinaname ✭ February 2021 TSTDavey said: Hello @Ernest we apologize for just now responding to your post.

So the first picture has the usb end that should go into your usb front panel and then you should have a blue usb 3.0 20 pin connector, and it should connect to the USB3_7_8 port on the motherboard.

I don't see that your motherboard has the appropriate header for this connector. I don't see that we carry this currently, but you're looking for a USB 3.1, Gen 2, 10Gb, Type-C header to internal IDC 20 Pin. I noticed you already have a 20pin connected to your USB header on your motherboard so I'd recommend using a Y splitter to accommodate having the two connection types. I hope this helps, but let me know if you have questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
