You may need to remove and rotate your Wraith stealth fan, on the heat sink, for the CPU cooler to fit.
Less expensive, more simple motherboard. Everything works fine.
At first, I was going to return the motherboard as the wraith stealth cooler from a Ryzen 3 1200 did not fit. The motherboard has a bad design flaw for spacing between the ram slots and the heat sink by the I.O.. The heat-sink and ram interfere with lower coolers. Taller coolers will work. The good thing is that you can unscrew the fan and shroud (do not pull hard on the shroud as it has tabs that can break) and rotate it to fit. The AMD logo is actually then in a better spot facing up instead of sideways. I then realized that I could in fact put a different 60 mm fan on it, if I chose to, which is good to know. The heat-sink itself fits, the AMD logo part on the shroud that sticks out needs to be rotated. I've deducted one star for this. I needed to go into the start menu for the sound control software as it did not create an icon on the task bar. Maybe I forgot to click on something when installing.
I bought this motherboard as I did not wish to pay extra for bling or better whatever.
