This is the second time Ive done a build with a version of this Motherboard, I just built a water cooled Gaming PC for a client who wanted a Ryzen 9 5900x and an RTX 3080, and had a 2500 budget, so I used the AMD version of this motherboard.
Then Last month (March 2022) I built a gaming PC for a streamer that could run Elden Ring, and because was streaming the build put a price limit of 500.
So I used this Motherboard again and paired it with an intel i5 10400k. Its a sold motherboard with space for 2 M.2 drives and a USB-C front panel header, which is always something to look out for when building a streaming PC if you want a multi camera setup as most decent webcams run USB-C these days.
This motherboard really falls right in the sweet spot between price and quality, its reasonably cheap at 100-120 depending on whether you get the wifi version. I got the wifi version because the last build I did for myself I thought well its connected using ethernet so I dont need wifi forgetting of course that this meant I now had no bluetooth either.
I love this motherboard its easy to use and it looks bad ass, the RGBs are subtle enough that you can almost forget about them.
I would absolutely recommend this motherboard to anyone whos got their build chosen and has a 100-120 budget for the motherboard.
