My first Asrock mobo and I don't regret it. It's stylish and still functional. TONs of IO in the back, lots of headers for USB, RGB, and case fans. Tons of sata slots, strong PCI slots, and everything is pretty strategically located around the board for cable management purposes. Tons of power phases. Heatsink for one of the m.2 slots. Running an nvme m.2 as my boot drive without issues, and my Ripjaws V @ 3200 running perfectly.

My only two complaints: no heatsink for the second m.2 slot, and the onboard wifi is a joke. This computer is in a place where it is impractical to hardwire it so I use wifi, and I specifically bought a mobo with onboard wifi hoping I wouldn't have to put in a wifi card. Alas, the onboard wifi barely picks up my wifi signal and when it does is slow as hell, whereas a TPLink wifi adapter card I have has absolutely 0 problem picking up the wifi and going very fast.

This board is definitely more than I need for a 2400G. However this build is meant to grow as I seek to add a GPU later, and perhaps a 16 core Ryzen at some point. To that end, it seems the VRM performance is the most critical defining factor. Few x470 motherboards today have stable VRM performance when trying to overclock an 8 core CPU.

The motherboard is good, but the BIOS isn't easy to work with in terms of overclocking. For example, finding the APU reserved memory was a challenge.

Update: I've enjoyed ASRock boards in the past but this one is among the worst for RAM compatibility and the QVL list is outdated and lacks detail. I think this is still the best board to buy simply because it's got objectively the best VRM performance of any x470 today. Dropping to 3 stars.

Great motherboard for the price, good features and the inclusion of wifi is nice. The only problem I have with it is that the RGB controller software is a bit hard to use.
