GA-AB350-Gaming 3 AMD B350 (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

Mainstream-motherboard (ATX) with AMD B350 Chipset, with 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 & 1x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4), 1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) & 6x SATA 6G, 2x USB 3.1 & 6x USB 3.0, integrated RGB-LED Lighting Motherboards with the AM4 socket serve as the platform for the AMD Ryzen (Summit Ridge) quad-core, hexa-core and octa-core CPUs as well as "Bristol Ridge" and "Raven Ridge" desktop APUs from the A-series with integrated GPUs unlike the old Athlon X4 which came without an iGPU. The advanced AMX X370, B350 and A320 chipsets are aimed at the enthusiast, mainstream and entry-level segments coming with an abundance of modern I/O interfaces and connectors for hardware peripherals, while additional data links are provided by the GPU/APU.

AMD Logo The processor's integrated memory controller supports AM4 motherboards as well as fast and energy- efficient DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode, as well as specialist ECC error-correcting memory depending on the motherboard. The advanced "Zen" microarchitecture in conjunction with the AM4 platform forms the perfect foundation for high-performance systems in a range of applications.

The Layout of the ATX-Format Gigabyte GA-B350-Gaming 3

The Gigabyte GA-B350-Gaming 3 is a motherboard utilising the ATX format and comes with a lightning-fast 16x PCI-Express 3.0 slot with x16 lanes. Furthermore there is a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot available as well as a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot as well as three PCIe x1 slots for additional expansion cards. The four RAM slots can accept up to 64 GB DDR4- RAM at a maximum speed of 3200 Megahertz. The range of internal connectors includes, among other things, a header for USB 3.0 and two headers for USB 2.0 for two and four ports respectively.

Special Features at a Glance:

  • 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 for high-end graphics cards
  • 2x USB 3.1 + 1x Turbo M.2 slot PCIe 3.0 x4
  • 4-Pin LED header & 5x PWM fan ports (4-pin)
  • DDR4-RAM at up to 3200 MHz
  • Gaming RGB-LED lighting
  • Modern UEFI-BIOS and temperature sensors

Data storage devices like SSDs and hard drives are managed on the board via six SATA 6G ports (incl. RAID support) as well as a horizontal M.2 slot which is connected by means of four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes and provides high speeds of up to 32 Gbit/s. M.2-SSDs measuring from 42 to 110 mm in length can be used and furthermore the cutting-edge NVM-Express protocol is supported which has been specially optimised for the highly-parallelised data access of modern PCIe-SSDs.

A further highlight of the Gigabyte GA-B350-Gaming 3 includes both USB 3.1 ports on the I/O shield as well as RGB-LED lighting and a 4-pin LED header. Last but not least the board can support five fans with 4-pin-PWM connectors directly on the motherboard. To the rear of the motherboard is located an I/O shield which offers access for additional devices and components via USB 3.0, Gigabit LAN, universal PS/2 or five audio jacks and a S/PDIF output to connect 7.1 sound to the Gigabyte GA-B350-Gaming 3. The motherboard also supports display output via integrated APU-GPU (optional) with two monitor outputs: HDMI and DVI-D.

Attention: The actual I/O configuration may vary depending on the motherboard. This table only reproduces the basic interface layout. Further ports may also be possible by means of additional controllers.

Compatibility Note for CPU Coolers Utilising AMD Socket AM4:

Due to the revision in mounting hole distances for the new AM4 socket, CPU coolers with rear mounts will - compared with preceding sockets e.g. AM2(+), AM3(+) or FM2(+) - require AM4-compatible mounting brackets. Please ensure compatibility prior to purchasing. CPU coolers that are attached directly to the retention bracket of the motherboard retain compatibility.

Great after some troubleshooting

Wouldn't post at all initially, had to reset the CMOS. It also was a bit finicky about RAM but I knew that was the case. Updating the bios was a breeze and fixed any ram problems.

It also seems to handle overclocking fine.

It posts rather slowly in general even with the newer bios (around 20 seconds) which is rather slower than my previous one.

Awards & Media Coverage

  • KitGuru - Must Have

    "The Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3 is a well-designed motherboard that targets B350 buyers with an appetite for features."

  • Bit-Tech Approved Award

    "It has what most people desire for a budget-conscious motherboard that's able to dish out a decent overclock, even with a Ryzen 8-core CPU. Best of all is that Gigabyte appears to be on the ball with its BIOS updates and the Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3 is already stable enough for us to warrant using it in our own systems. If you want to go overclocking in the land of Ryzen with a limited budget, the Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3 is a great buy."

  • Custom PC Approved Award

    "Supremely stable and bristling with features - a great X370 board."
