For the money you won't find a better motherboard with these specs and level of quality, mine is coupled with a 3600 and it's a monster piece of kit !

Ordered from CCL via its eBay store. Arrived promptly, nicely packaged, and at the best price I could find online. Great service which I'd happily use again. Product itself is flawless so far. Feels sturdy and high-quality, big chunky heat sinks on the VRMs and chipset, plus an M.2 shield. Wi-Fi works great, ditto integrated Bluetooth. BIOS is intuitive and it's easy to OC both RAM and your CPU. For a single-GPU build I can't find fault with it.

It's a very nice looking board. Easy to install and setup. Simple BIOS with good overclocking features. Plenty of ports for devices and fan headers for case fans. The Mystic Light RGB sync is very cool and works well. Audio quality is excellent, although I'm not a big fan of the Nahimic software included. No other issues with it. All in all a great B450 board.

great MB, not used it for overclocking yet. RGB just on the right side of the board not much on the left side.

Had been searching for a store that had this board in stock and CCL came to my rescue. Great price and next day delivery. Will use again!
