can consider getting asus mobo also
yup.... reading up on the alternative mobo now. Since Avertek is at Kallang, not too far for me too. But not considering gigabyte or msi as commonwealth (cdl) and amk (corbell) abit too far for me.

I just might use back the Asrock AB350 mobo though since I bringing down to TechDynamic to test out the B1 and B2 slots this coming thursday

Asrock AB350 mobo ask distro update the bios
Actually, i already updated to the latest one available from ASRock website to use the 3700X as it was on a lower bios version. So see how, might just use back my ASRock AB350 Pro4 after i went down to distro to test out whether the B1 and B2 really faulty or not.

If should i decided to change the mobo, i preferred to get the ATX size ones. Worried about the clearance of the Noctua DH15; intended to use this fan and gonna avoid the stock fan already

Noctua DH15 is an overkill..

That carousell seller refunded me already

He claimed his carousell got people reported him, and was suspended. he just got back access yesterday. just received the money back to my account, gonna drop by SLS next few days to get the mobo and wait for my RMA-return from AMD to come in
Good that you get your money back! Out of curiosity, why did he decide to refund you? He doesn't have the 3700x he's selling is it?

Been using DH15 since my Intel Haswell rig but it was sitting 1 one corner since my first Ryzen 1600X setup As I had been using the stock cooler for both 1600X and 3700X. Recently just claimed the AM4 mounting bracket from Noctua. So thought of using it permanently.

He said that his supplier got no stock for ASRock B550 Steel Legend mobo and have to be back ordered for end Aug or Sept. So, he asked me want a full refund or partial refund, he will shipped the CPU to me immediately tomorrow if I chose the latter. I asked for full refund. Immediate paynow, no question asked.

Thanks

Also, I had decided on the ASUS TUF Gaming B550-Plus motherboard. Since the price-range and features are similar to ASRock B550 Steel Legend. ASRock needs to backorder according to the few retailers whom I whatsapp and asked in SLS as even distro no stock currently.

And according to my SingPost tracking of my smartpac posting of the RMA CPU back to AMD, it's current delivery in progress. Anyone know, how long will AMD resend the CPU back to me assuming that they process it today?

If can fit, I don't see why not. The additional headroom makes for an even quieter cooler.

Dual tower a little overkill for me. That's why I got the single tower version NH-U14S
