Fantastic motherboard, just lacks good BIOS software from inside Windows.

Very competitive for its price point, the only negative point is the lack of WiFi 6. Every other box is ticked, unless you need more PCIe 4.0 slots this is one of the best value B550s out there.

A great board for my latest build. Plenty of connectivity and easy to use, straight forward BIOS. HDMI Port is a little deceiving, after some further reading only seems to operate if you have an AMD CPU with built in graphics or an AMD Graphics card fitted. Back plate is not flush but its only a minor point and its hardly noticeable.

Fantastic board, especially ready for the new Ryzen 5000 series making this board future-proof. Massive Upgrade to my previous motherboard for an Intel Chipset. 8 USB Slots on the back - Thought 6 was enough on my old board, turns out I needed more So I'm glad I upgraded to this Motherboard.
