Got this when it was on sale for 60. Extremely good value Not a motherboard with lots of gimmicks but a solid choice. Comes with a good instruction book, which made building a computer for the first time much easier. It was delivered timely and was decently packaged.

Great motherboard for the price and versatile for the needs of my son building his gaming computer!

Quite simply a bargain motherboard for AMD CPU's. Fairly future proof with a max 64GB RAM support, but I have built three separate PC's with either 16GB or 32GB RAM, and it performs excellently for all types of processes (mainly gaming and Adobe suite). Cannot complain for the price. Partner with which ever AMD processor that takes your fancy (providing it is the right socket) choose what ever your graphics card you want, off you go. I nearly considered the Carbon model with its built in wifi and 128GB support, but to be honest, having a wifi card and only needing 32GB for mine, it was not worth the effort.

Well laid out board, nice and sturdy

Fantastic product. Recommended by a friend there was no other option once I had set my heart and this and I've not been disappointed, top quality motherboard.


October 2020

Great product, delivered quickly and on time, works great. A great board for anyone looking at a mid range AMD build


August 2020

solid mobo all around plus good instruction manual for beginners


July 2020

Purchased around a month ago at the time of writing after my previous motherboard died, So far no issues


July 2020

Easy to install and setup!

Rob Powell-Mantle

July 2020

Works as it should, it was at a fantastic price and would definitely recommend the product and company.


July 2020

Incredible for the price.

Brian Watt

July 2020

I will never buy MSI again Bios problems from the start. Bios update made it total unstable having to use a old bios set up. Many reviews on the net say the same thing. MSI say they have corrected the problem. NEWS FLASH NO YOU HAVE NOT.

Edgar Osminin

July 2020

Very beautiful and good quality motherboard. Best b450 motherboard version. No problems at all, and holds xmp profile very well. Good VRM thermals and can even use this motherboard with ryzen 3800 with no problems.

Barry Knapper

July 2020

Excellent product. So good this is my second one.


June 2020

For the price this is a great buy, easy to work on, manual tells you everything you need to know. Used with a Ryzen 3600 worked out of the box, no need for an update. Bios is easy to navigate, turned xmp on and detected 3200 ram with no issues.


June 2020

Easy to build on with plenty of useful features.

Chris Dickinson

June 2020

Easy to set up. I put this in my old pc box and upgrade my computer and the instructions were so easy to follow i wondered why i hadnt done this before


June 2020

Good motherboard and fast delivery


June 2020

Brilliant value, has everything you need, even for higher end builds


June 2020

Good product


June 2020

Perfect board for creating a Ryzen gaming rig. I paired this with an AMD Ryzen 3600 3.6GHz AM4 CPU and 2x8GB Hyper X Fury RAM and it runs like a dream. GPU is a Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB and the rig is running all games at very high to max settings. A new GPU will be purchased down the line but I'm in no rush as these components gave me and average of an extra 25+ FPS using the same GPU

Good value motherboard and uses current cpu.

Excellent product from this amazing company. Quick delivery of well wrapped item Will use again


May 2020

Don't even get me started on this, this motherboard is truly one of the best motherboards on the market it feels and looks like its made from the best quality and has plenty of upgrade space for the future, i would recommend :)

May 2020

Outstanding value for money. Easily the best b450 board for its price range. The added benefit of the larger bios chip size will help going forward


May 2020

Great board

Colin Neighbour

May 2020

I brought this motherboard to upgrade my ageing pc so I can try out VR and I'm pleased with the result. I'm quite computer savvy but I've never installed a MB before, I followed the install instructions that came with it and found it to be pretty straight forward to do. After putting all the components in I powered it up, it booted fine, no problems. I updated to the newest drivers / software from the MSI web site, Job Done! Very happy with it and CCL who I've used before, It's worked well so far and I've had no problems connecting my VR headset.

Samardeep Singh

May 2020

Great quality motherboard Would have wanted to seen more fan headers and rgb headers


May 2020

Excellent product. Connections are good, so relatively easy to construct own PC (this was first time we had done anything like this before, so took our time). Absolutely delighted with outcome and would buy again or come back for an upgrade in the future.

May 2020

Amazing board. So easy to set up in bios. Great features and a fantastic price. I love it.


April 2020

Great product and service, but overall it is amazing


March 2020

Great motherboard. It was easy to install and links up well with both addressable and non-addressable lights. Also arrived promptly and well packaged.


March 2020

Great board, Fantastic price!


February 2020

Very big and lots of room to work with. Would have clearance issues if I wanted 4 ram strips not 2 and IO shield was annoying to angle right with the motherboard but apart from that great


January 2020

In my opinion the best, value for money board for an AMD Ryzen build.


January 2020

This is a solid mid-range board. The build quality and BIOS software are very good, and it supports third gen Ryzen without a BIOS update. The placement of the M2 slot isn't ideal as it puts your SSD under the GPU and there's no clearance for a heat sink. Being able to boot and flash the BIOS without a CPU is a nice touch.

Oisin Anderson

January 2020

Great motherboard with the basics at a reasonable cost. The bios is quite nice and easy to work with.


January 2020

A great low priced motherboard, especially impressed by the USB c port on the back. This is the future people!


December 2019

Best value motherboard for the Ryzen 3000 series, simple to install and to configure to get best performance out of the CPU , RAM and NVME


December 2019

Sound .

Joshua Warren

December 2019

Great board for those who cannot afford an X570, it's is also the best B450 out there. BIOS is really simple and I have no time putting my PC together with it even though I am a first time builder. The pricing was extremely fair for what I got.

Joshua Warren

December 2019

One of the only B450 boards that came with the BIOS update pre-loaded. This allowed me to actually use a Ryzen 7 3700X even though I didn't have the extra money for a X570 board. The board looks great and the layout is easy and this coming from a first time builder. If you look anywhere online you know this is the best B450 by far, just get it.


November 2019

Great motherboard and for gaming gives me great options to upgrade in the future.


November 2019



November 2019

Probably the best bang for buck, B450 with an upgraded bios chip, No issues out of the box, Has some decent heat-sinks on it with a nice colour scheme that would fit about any build, MSI did really well with the B450 boards and this one at the price would be a good choice for any build.


October 2019

This is probably the best bang for buck B450 motherboard, Has a decent enough layout with enough features for a really decent build, With a nice neutral color scheme that would fit just about any case, Also has a decent VRMs with decent cooling all in all a decent board at a great price with the upgraded bios for Ryzen 3000 series.


October 2019

Big heat sink for VRM and chokes, providing enough heat dissipation even for overclocking. RBG LEDs on top right adds aesthetics to this black-and-white, neutral-looking board. Great for linux users. The controller nct6797 can easily be driven by loading nct6775 kernel module. Once loaded, the speed of all 6 fans can be controlled by "pwm" device regardless of DC or PWM fan types. There are also 10 temperature sensors available to be read. The LEDs can be controlled by exposed devices. Good community support due to popularity. Overall, very satisfied with this board.


October 2019

Great value motherboard, worked out of the box with my 3600. You get what you pay for.


October 2019

A great balance between having lots of options available for expansion / fans & keeping the chipset temperatures well controlled with sensibly sized heatsinks. So far pleased. Have 6 large case fans connected to the fan headers, with only one sharing a PWM header. Well featured bios for a little tinkering. Great that it has Ryzen 3000s support out of the box. Wish memory compatibilty was slightly improved - having to run my Corsair 3200s at 3000. Hopefully a bios update will help.


September 2019

Great motherboard. Well made has solid vrm heatsink for overclocking. Ryzen 3000 support out of the box was really useful as I didn't have an older ryzen cou to update it neither did I want to go through the trouble but this just worked great was the main reason I chose this mobo instead of the msi b450 gaming pro carbon Ac. was easy to build on and looks great rgb led's on the back are a nice touch also syncs up with my gpu and case fans with mystic light. Bios is easy to use. 10 out of 10. Msi ftw


September 2019

Great motherboard. Everything comes well packaged and instructions are clear.

System: B450 Tomahawk, 3900x, 2x16gb 3600 CL19, Sabrent Rocket 1tb, EVGA 1080ti Slow to POST. Regularly fails reboot. Seems to be on the high side of Vcore. Nevertheless, manages to run my 3900x at stock settings, the VRM heatsink isn't hot.. Good board.

Karim Riahi

September 2019

Paired up with a ryzen 5 3600 works straight out of the box and preforms amazingly. Would definitely recommend.


September 2019

Fantastic board for anyone who wants to get a MSI board without the BIOS issues. Works straight out of the box and looks pretty sleek. Slight annoyance is that there is no jumper clip to short the cmos to reset it. But apart from that, i have no complaints.


September 2019

The Max model makes it simple to get arguably the best B450 motherboard working immediately with the new Ryzen range without worrying about bios flashing. zero issues with the board, it looks OK, and has good placement of fan headers, m2 drive slot and sata slots. the selling point of the Tommahawk board is its good VRMS which help with stability, longevity and overclocking. 1 very minor con is the lack of a 'jumper clip' to reset the CMOS, the pins are there obviously you just need a spare clip.

lee Evans

August 2019

I Bought the B450 Tomahawk Max based on the non-MAX version's reviews and praised VRM's, with the additional benefit of the MAX having a 32mb bios to fit a full bios instead of the lite version and also being Ryzen 3000 compatible straight out of the box so there is no need to mess around with flashing the bios. The motherboard worked perfectly as advertised, I have my Ryzen 5 3600 running perfectly. The aesthetic of the board is very nice and neutral enough to fit with many colour schemes, the VRM heatsinks are high quality and capable of handing even the 12 core Ryzen 3900x if i choose to upgrade in the future.

lee Evans

August 2019

I bought the B450 Tomahawk Max based the non-max version's great reviews and praised vrm's, whilst having the additional benefit of a 32mb bios chip to fit the complete bios including ism's click bios 5 instead of the non-max version's lite bios due to its limited 16mb space, and being compatible with Ryzen 3000 chips straight out of the box so there is no need to mess around with flashing the bios. The motherboard worked perfectly as advertised and is running my Ryzen 5 3600 without problems. The aesthetic of the board is very nice, the grey and black design is neutral enough to fit with almost any color scheme.

August 2019

I ordered this motherboard on the 27th of July as a pre order and it has arrived today. I had been doing a lot of research prior to pulling the trigger and buying this motherboard. One of the reasons why I chose this motherboard was due to the original msi b450 tomahawk only having a 16mb bios chip which was causing issues when using the newer bios for the ryzen 3 series (I believe some people have it working and msi are addressing the issue). This motherboard comes equipped with a 32mb bios chip and is ready for the latest ryzen chips straight out of the box. Whilst researching which b450 board would be the best for my new ryzen chip the tomahawk came up time and time again. Whilst I'm no expert in the importance of good VRMs on a motherboards I trust the pros out there and they advise that this setup is good. There is also a large heatsink over the vrms which will provide good cooling. The layout of the fan headers, sata ports and rgb headers all seem to be positioned well so no complaints there. Connections on the back of the motherboard are more than adequate for my requirements and use 3.2 gen 2 is a nice addition. On to the aesthetics of the board itself. I love the black and grey design and the VRM heatsink as mentioned before is also very aesthically pleasing. The gold capacitors on the board also give it a more premium feel. The motherboard box itself doesn't look the nicest in my opinion, the print seems a bit faded (?) And there is no foam in the box to support the board in transit but it appears the packaging has done the job. The motherboard has plenty of different bios features for you to play with and customise to get the computer to run how you want it to. Only time will tell how good the board is but my initial impressions are good. If you are looking for other reviews I suggest you read reviews for the standard b450 tomahawk as it's the same board just latest gen ryzen ready with a bigger bios chip. Hope this helps!
