It looks great, it works great, the Rgb is awesome. I would definetly recomend this MB, I had it for some time, I got it for a great deal and it has every feature that you need. I have a con witch is not relevant but the PCH should have had RGB all around it.

I needed a new motherboard to pair with the latest Ryzen processors, and have found MSI's reliable in the past. Some features which swayed my buying decision are the ample USB ports on the rear I/O, including Type-C, the 6 system fan headers, integrated Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth, PCIe gen 4.0, and M-Flash to get the BIOS updated without another CPU. Part of the decision was aesthetics too, with the motherboard having a good amount of RGB lighting. I'm happy with the overall quality of the board, it feels premium to me, despite being part of the B550 line-up as opposed to X570, and was easy to build with. The BIOS also feels user-friendly, with both "Easy" and "Advanced" modes. This motherboard does everything I need it to do, and came at a fair price, with the Assassin's Creed Valhalla promotion sweetening the deal that little bit more.

Very prompt and delivered on time. The MSI and CCL offer was very competitive and great value Black Friday offer. The motherboard is easy to install and with useful features such as PCIe 4.0 and AX WiFI. The front USB-c is a very nice addition. Great value, Well Done MSI

It is a great value, high spec and quality mother board with good WIFI support. I built a game PC for my son and he really likes it!

Excellent motherboard, really pleased with it. Great VRM's, feels really well made and very solid. Finally got all my parts (looking at you 3060Ti) and got building last night. The BIOS is straight forward and easy to navigate, well worth its price tag!

Pleased by this motherboard. Just what I needed for 2k gaming paired with a 3070 and Ryzen 7 5800x. Chose this one especially because it had more USB ports than other brands and also has USB-C front port. It also offers 2 M.2 heatsinks which is pretty cool. If you decide to buy an AIO the above space is quite restricted from Motherboard heatsinks so make sure the case has plenty of space to fit that in

I purchased this board to pair with a Ryzen 9 3900x 32 Gigabyte of Team group 3200mhz Ram No problems with it rock stable has everything you could want, WIFI 6 (intel chipset) 2.5GB Lan (Realtek Chip) ALC 1200 Audio(haven't tried this) Bios seems pretty straight forward although the only thing i really did was check the CPU temps, sort out my boot drive . Update the bios from within the bios flash program. No issues there except it did take it time to flash. The only mistakes I made so far was using the Ryzen Cooler that came with the CPU as it gets a bit toasty. This is the first MSI board I've used in about 18 years since I owned a AMD Duron, been using Asus/Gigabyte since then, I think MSI has got a convert now. Very nice board 1 Issue I cant seem to get Dragon Centre to download driver updates as it constantly tells me I have no internet, My wife's machine that is also MSI and uses the same version of Dragon Centre works perfectly. and the 2 issue that makes me chuckle is the full screen option for the boot up logo is roughly the size of a my hand , not sure what resolution that is but its not 1080p full screen

Brought this board along with a 3700x for my nephew. From the start it was easy to build with and booted 1st time. Bios is easy to use and booted 1st time when applied ram settings. RGB is nice but over the top. He's been using it for a month now and has had no problems, he's loving his new PC. A bonus was MSI running a cashback when you brought this board with a 3700x.

fantastic motherboard, lovely BIOS as you would expect with a gaming carbon, and easy setup. RGB is beautiful as always, the build quality feels top of the line. Would 100% recommend it! Got a great offer on it also so fab value for money.

Just bought this motherboard for my new build. I haven't tested it yet, but it has all the features I was looking for and with the Black Friday cashback promotion, it's a really good deal. Warning: if using a promotion, read well the terms and conditions.

Purchased both this and the B550 gaming plus and they both work great, good vrm temps and cpu performance for my ryzen 5600x and timely bios updates for new amd features. Also great price over other options.

Overall very happy with this product. Arrived safely, quickly, well packaged. Price was fantastic combined with great offers from both MSI and CCL. Exceptional build quality which originally stood out. Bios flashback and front panel USB 3.2 will come in very handy and was one of the main reason I went with MSI for my MOBO. Board offers everything I need and more and Im very pleased with my purchase. Definitely recommend MSI products.

I was originally torn between either getting the B550 Tomohawk or this, WiFi and Bluetooth 5.1 wasn't a priority but thought it would definitely come in handy at some point, so when this dropped to 159.99 for Black Friday along with AS:V it was an instant purchase. The board itself is of very high quality and has a wide range of features especially compared to some other boards that even at 100 more don't necessarily have. The front USB type C played a big part in purchasing this board as a lot of other B550 boards simply don't have this. The inclusion of two extra USB type-A ports on the rear is also a nice to have as I have a lot of peripherals. The install of this board was very easy and simple, and the manual is very helpful and easy to understand. There's not too much to say, but overall it is a very decent B550 board and would highly recommend it. Very happy with the purchase.

Brett Wakley

last month

Great board, really easy to build with and the manual was really clear with good linked videos. Bought for a Ryzen 3700X system, everything worked perfectly. Went for this as it is currently one of the few B550 boards that supports USB-C ports on the front of the case which was important to me. I was originally going to get the MSI B550-A Pro, but this board came with Wifi included, a better audio chipset, and more rear USB ports, so it seemed a worthwhile upgrade for the price. Integrated IO shield and some subtle RBG on the board were a nice extra touch too. Not sure what this really offers over the MSI Gaming Edge Wifi which has a lower MSRP, but seems like this is sometimes cheaper depending on stock levels so worth checking. Overall very happy with the purchase.

This motherboard must be one of the easiest to install that I've ever had the pleasure of installing. It slipped easily into the case I bought on the same order, and installing the CPU and cooler went so smoothly I swear I thought I did something wrong. The RGB on it is great, and theres plenty of ports on the board for expansion to USB3, more RGB and lots of fan headers. Even a header for Corsair AIO as well, I believe (from what I can see on the board). Installing the NVMe drive was simple too! Wifi is fast and stable, and the BT connection to my devices is great and has a decent range as well. Highly recommended.

When I was looking at a motherboard for a new ryzen 5000 build I found MSI was regularly getting great feedback, I was originally looking to get a lower end model but found just as I was looking to buy they were running a bunch of deals so for what I was originally looking to spend was able to get a wifi model, and having the option to flash the bios without a cpu is a great feature to have to avoid any ryzen 5000 series compatibility worries.

I've used MSI for years and it's always worked. Been reliable and well priced. Software is brilliant and all round great product. Love the design of this motherboard and was really wanting to build a ryzen build with this. BIOS is great and it's packed with tons of features. What more can I say!!
