This motherboard does everything you need it to. I've not overclocked on it yet but the facility is there to do it. Takes multiple RAM speeds and isn't RGB ^^. Very happy with it with the product and can recommend to anyone looking for a budget mobo

Initially I was going to buy the MSI Z390-A Pro however the MSI Z490-A Pro wasn't all that more expensive, now I have a board that will last me for the next five years.
