Excellent budget am4 board. It has newest bios installed so you can use ryzen 3000 series out of the box. I was surprised to see that overclocking was enabled on a budget board. Great value and features to get you started.

I used this motherboard to build a school homework computer for my daughter. I was a little apprehensive as I normally use B450 boards, but the performance of this board was far more than expected. I paired it with a Ryzen 3200G, 8g Corsair Ram, Patriot Burst 240GB SSD and a Sapphire Nitro 470 (had spare) which all work very well. My daughter can play Fortnite on high settings with ease, and for general computer use the visual experience and speed are excellent. Shes never going to "game" other than the aforementioned titles, so if you are building a general purpose computer, a higher chipset motherboard will probably be overkill. All in all, an excellent motherboard which supports Ryzen Gen 3 out of the box, and highly recommended.
