Very good value for money. Easy access to all the headers and easy to install

With the latest BIOS it accepts the latest RYZEN 7 5800X I have run this board with every generation of RYZEN. I had a RYZEN 3 1200 in it when I upgraded to the BIOS that accepts the RYZEN 7 5800X. This is probably the most versatile and best value AM4 motherboard. It currently takes all AM4 CPUs. Has generous PCIe slots allowing 3 full sized cards. Lot's of fan connectors, 6 SATA, 2 NVMe (there is a compromise between one of the PCIe and one of the NVMe). If you want an upgrade path do what I did. Start with this board and the cheapest AM4 CPU you can find. Then upgrade the CPU when the opportunity arises. The CPU I have now is 5 times more powerful than what I started with and I can still double the power on the same system by with the steps up to 5950X

Great motherboard. I've got two of them. One is running as normal pc (with dual GPUs) for gaming and occasional mining. The other is running as a permenant mining rig with an Athlon 3000g. Rock solid, great motherboards for mining and anything else. Highly recommended.

A great board for a great CPU, has everything you need to get you up and gaming if that's your thing. Installed the CPU, my first AMD build and was pretty easy and without problems. Who needs and overly expensive and overpriced motherboard? Top brand at a great price.

Not a motherboard expert but bought this to replace an A320 so I could try some overclocking. Seems to have all the necessary features and will take a 5000 series Cpu with a bios update in Jan 21. Decent price for an x470 chipset from what I can tell.

I'm very pleased with motherboard. I was on a budget but wanted to upgrade later. I fitted the gen 1 RYZEN 3 that I happen to have. It actually does everything I need but who's satisfied with that. I can install a RYZEN 2700 if I want or a 3600 or even a 5800. Not many AM4 boards on the market can span the entire current RYZEN range. If I had bought a newer X570 then my RYZEN 3 CPU would not have worked so it would have been too expensive at the time. An X470 is the ideal board.

Great Service and thanks for all the help with product info as well, great job.


June 2020

Bought this for my first PC build in about 5 years, and the first time I'd gone near anything not totally in the budget end, and I have to say I'm very happy with it. Haven't had any problems with it working, it seems very solidly consructed too, and the BIOS is fantastic to work with, very easy and straightforward and it even has mouse support.

This board came ryzen 5 3600 ready do just fit it together without an update

The motherboard could be cheaper

Good build, looks cool, and decent thermals.

Works well, no issues.

Robert Carter

A year old board, that is slightly slow to boot, and does not have a second backup BIOS or the current generations ability to load BIOS from USB without a processor, so if you want to overclock and have an easy recovery this board is probably not for you. That said once booted it works well with Ryzen 3 in default. I have not tried overclocking, but I have turned up the wick on the DRAM to its rated 3200MHz with no issues. It is currently on offer with a free BIOS upgrade to the latest level which they do NOT apply. It appears they only upgrade a board if it will not accept Series 3 Ryzen out of the box, so getting to the latest BIOS is down to yourself.
