Question Asrock X470 Taichi VS MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK

I would pick the X470 Taichi, but both should be capable reliably overclocking an overclocked Ryzen 7 2700.

The X470 taichi has a 12+4VRM (doubled) and the X370 Gaming has a 10+2VRM (Doubled I think). Both would support an overclocked 2700 with no issues, however, the X470 Taichi is better. Both have very substantial VRM heat syncs.

The MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK may need a bios update to support the Ryzen 7 2700, however, the X470 Taichi will not.

The X470 Taichi may have better compatibility with the 3rd gen CPUs, and the more powerful VRMS will help for future higher core count CPUs.

I'm just doubt it's brand.

Asrock does make some low end boards, however the x470 taichi is a very high end and quality board from asrock.

The msi is still a very good board will be a good alternative as long as the bios is updated.
I'll get X470 Taichi if it's VRMs are better than X370 Gaming M7 ACK. If i get X370 Gaming M7 ACK should i update bios or does it work straight outta box?
 
Id still buy x470. Its vrms are better indeed.
With the x370 board it depends.
If it has the correct bios, it will work. If not, the system wont turn on and there is no way to update the bios without a first gen cpu. Since 2nd gen has been out for awhile, likely the board has the correct bios, but i wouldnt risk it.

In MSI's website it says supporting 2th gen.
