Great value mid-range motherboard with high end build quality and features.

Great value board with plenty of overclock options and heatsinks to compliment. Outstanding build quality and supported software. Altogether a very high class mid-range motherboard.

Good price, PCIe4, 2.5gbe, neat little m.2 heatspreader, professional reviews tell me that the VRMs will stay cool under heavy load. All great! The BIOS is a little clunky, but aren't they all?

I bought MSI for my last upgrade, a x370 gaming plus when Ryzen 1st gen came out. I've had a great experience with this board and so I decided to go with MSI again. The mortar should easily support 3600mhz RAM and go well with a 5000 series CPU (when I can get one!). Future proofed for Gen4 NVME & USB C is a big plus too! Seemed like a better option than the Tomahawk at a slightly lower price, shame it doesn't have the second m.2 heatsink though.

Good value when compared to other boards that lack a USB-C port. It also has a nice integrated I/O shield and 2 M.2 slots for SSDs.

Bought to upgrade my current desktop with the plan to move old components into a new media server build. performance is great and as expected, and somewhat future proofs my latest build. Would recommend to anyone who is in the market for an upgrade.

This motherboard is so good for the money! PCIE4.0 will be amazing for with direct storage and I'm glad I can use it with my Ryzen 5 5600x cause of the bios flashback feature.

Bought to prepare for upgrading to a new Ryzen processor when they become available as I had an older X370 board. This is my first MSI motherboard and I was instantly impressed with the weight of the product, it does give you a sense of quality. Things I liked - the enormous heatsinks - the fixed backplate (I don't know why this has not been a thing all along really) - the bios flash USB socket and button is handy, I dint need it but I can see it coming in handy for some - position of the chassis fan connectors Things I didn't like - the SATA ports ended up in a bit of an awkward spot to get the connectors in, though that's just luck of the draw with the case you have really - would have preferred the RGB header at the top of the board rather than the bottom. Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase, It was easy to work with, presented no issues installing and It seems all the fan profiles out of the box are all good, I literally only had to set the ram speed and everything else is as it came.

Very affordable price for a b550 MB. Decided to go with the non WiFi version as I have no use for it with ethernet hooked up. Very smooth setup process and worked nicely with my ryzen 5 3600 CPU.
