MSI B450 Tomahawk (motherboard)        85                    No complaints
beyond not very clear instructions about what screws to use for what
purpose and the manual has the build order wrong IMO (attach everything
before putting in case).... vmm(4) loads fine have not yet tried bhyve/vbox

Just did a quick test of installing a fbsd 12-release instance on vbox
works fine (with NAT'ed NIC's)... the next and final test (at this point I
see no reason why it wouldn't work unless the bhyve command line has
changed since 11.3) is install PetiteCloud and set up some boot time vm's
on it  (finally got some time to update PC to handle non-Unix-like VM's so
I guess it is time to start writting some code again ;-))
