10/10 great mobo for the price

Only one DIMM slot working.

Amazing value, thank you for providing a valuable service.

Very happy with my purchase. I was on a really tight budget and this fit perfectly. The only downside of the board is that it only has two ram slots and that makes it not that great for future upgrades. Other than that everything is perfect!

Decent entry-level motherboard. Only has one system fan header which is very annoying.

Great budget mobo from MSI, Support for everything you need to get going including an NVMe m.2 slot which I'd highly reccomend utilising with a min 256GB m.2 SSD for the OS drive.

Andrew

Installed easy but had to reset the bios as ram wasnt working in mobo but soon as it was reset ram worked just fine

Good board for beginner builds - compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs out of the box. Be aware that larger GPUs will block the 4-lane PCIE express (such as for WIFI adaptors).

John from Wallasey

March 2020

Thanks CCL, I was not sure which mobo to buy for a new Ryzen 5 chip but the friendly service at CCL pointed me in the direction of this awesome motherboard. Very happy.

Good board robust construction. Lacking a few things . Only 1 fan header . gpu blocks 2nd pci slot. Easy to use bios. Simple cpu and ram overclock.
