Fantastic AMD/AM4 motherboard. Board looks on par with other premium branded boards with great build quality. Only wish is for more internal headers. USB, Add-RGB, fan headers etc. Not the absolute cheapest AM4 B450 board but definitely not the most expensive! Very happy with my purchase.

Works just fine as a motherboard, BUT there are 3 important points : 1. You MUST use header 27 for the AMD CPU fan; the location of this header is shown in the Motherboard Layout on page 1. The illustrations in the installation manual (p. 15-18) seem to indicate using header 3, but this is an RGB header, NOT for fans. 2. The MB drivers are supplied on a DVD, which is a fat lot of good if your flashy new case doesn't have a DVD drive. I tried using an external DVD drive, but the drivers didn't load on rebooting, so I copied all the files and folders from the DVD onto a USB memory stick, then plugged this into a USB 2.0 socket, and rebooted - this worked. There may be other solutions of course. 3. The RAM slots are very tight, and the slots only have release levers at one end (very mean) so it's important that the RAM boards are pressed home very firmly at the non-lever ends. I therefore recommend putting plenty of stand-offs under the RAM slots to avoid bending the MB. I haven't tried RGB, overclocking, or M.2. Very good support from ASROCK, though (support2@asrock.nl).
