I've just used this for my first PC build, and I am very pleased with the quality, ease of installation, and features such as 3 system fan sockets plus one for the CPU fan. As a novice to such things I have even found my way around the BIOS without too much difficulty.

The RGB placement is bad, they don't look that appealing. The board aesthetics are mehh. However, the build quality and performance of the motherboard is very good. if your going for an budget matx ryzen build i would certainly go for this motherboard.
