Brilliant mobo, easy set up and works well, would reccoment to all that have Ryzen.

Quick and Easy.....After spending an afternoon looking at the different types out there I selected this Motherboard (The X570 was above and beyond my requirements). Last time I built my own PC it (still) has IDE, SATA and VGA connections. This was a jump into the unknown world of SSD, M2 and double layered graphics cards. CCL made comparing everything so easy, and I've made my purchase of a Ryzen 5 3600 to compliment the board. I've read up on flashing the BIOS, so I'm ready to go. Excellent service throughtout. I heartily recommend CCLOnline to beginners and old hands (like me!)

Good quality board at a good price. Mine was supplied with an early BIOS that did not support a Ryzen 5000k CPU and the AORUS/Gigabyte provided information for how to flash this is not great. With some forum searching and not too much effort this was successful using QFlash plus and now it works well on the latest BIOS.

If youre looking for a budget friendly build is a perfect choice, plenty of OC options and good build quality. Just be aware that if you intend to use one of the newer AMD cpus you might need a bios update, but is very easy to do and fast in this Motherboard

The feature set is alright. One of the best value-for-money B550s for top end CPUs (e.g. 5900X, 5950X).

Bart Frith

It's alright, feature-wise, probably one of the best value-for-money B550 boards to pair with a higher-end 5000 series CPU like a 5950X or 5900X.

Very nice motherboard, worth the extra couple of over Gaming V1 & V2, as this has an M.2 heaksink that you'll need if you intend to fit a Gen4 ssd without one for less & faff than buying separate. Addionally it has better VRMs, better sound chip, 2.5 gigabit network chip & probably some other bits too. Tip : If fitting a Zen 3, you need to upodate the BIOS using Flash-Plus first. And by first I mean : before adding memory, cpu & graphics card. If not, you'll have to remove them as the procedure won't work if any of them are seated. The manual & Gigabytes online instructions here are poor. I found this video "How To Use Gigabyte Q FLASH PLUS Bios Flash Button" very helpful. Final point, you need to use a USB stick, i.e. it won't work with a memory card reader containing an SD card. Obviously 6 months down the line this will be a none issue, but until then it's essential

Nice board 2 x nvme slots great on B550, included I/O shield even better, but i think that board should be cheeper like 125 GPB or reove video output add more USB gen 3 /type C and then that be current price and it will be ELITE B550 board.

Great build quality and more than enough I/O options for my use. BIOS is easy to setup. Out of box the BIOS was outdated with no support for Ryzen 5000 series but Q Flash Plus is very easy and updated the BIOS to latest without even installing the CPU. Highly recommended

I Bought this motherboard along with a Ryzen 5000 series CPU to upgrade from my B350 and first gen Ryzen. Finish and quality is amazing compared to my B350 and the motherboard has some amazing features. Out of box motherboard had an outdated bios and didn't support the latest Ryzen but this comes with Q Flash Plus and updating the bios without a CPU was really easy. But I would appreciate if CCL/Gigabyte ship the motherboards with the latest BIOS.

Bought this as part or a deal - easy to set up and get going. The bios was out of date F1 instead of F11 but that was easy to update using USB. The software provided is pretty easy to use and understand. Plenty of space on the board for access when installing and expanding. Two ssd m2 slots is great cuts down all the wires. All in all good solid board and easy to set up and use.

Had both Intel and AMD CPU's in the past. Never had any issues with any of my AMD prodcuts. Can't say the same about my previous I7-6800k. Great performance to cost ratio. The included Wraith cooler is also decent and more than suitable for running at stock clocks. Would highly recommend.

Great motherboard, haven't had any problems with it so far. BIOS is easy to use and has some good features. Only small gripe is maybe the placing of some fan headers.
