Ah, the first review. What can I say? What can I NOT say?
This board is astounding. Prior to this board, I had the Asus B350 ROG Strix, and I loved that board. This one takes what that one did, and amplified it ten-fold.
The RGB colors on the mohterboard make me drool. I mean, RGB make sjust about everyone go crazy. While I do lvoe the RGB, the main focus is the ease of the BIOS, overclocking on the motherboard, and just how low of temps it has. Mine is running 37C idle, and averaging about 40-45C with normal load. I love it.
If you are looking at this motherboard and if you are questioning whether to buy it, then do it. Absolutely buy this board. I was skeptical at first, but onceI got everything set up, and turned on, I fell in love.
Cons: None so far
The Motherboard is pretty good. It might be the cause of the m.2 problem, but i doubt its the cause.
Great board for the price. The ASUS Bios is easy to work with and it looks great. The integrated I/O shield isn't common of at this price point and is a nice touch.
Great so far, everything posted fine and works. Have not tired any overclocking yet.
The BIOS is pretty straight forward. I had no issues yet. Lighting is pretty and everything was easy to install on it.
Got this on sale instead of the b450 tomahawk, does what its supposed to do and great quality, one star less because overclocking a bit more complicated than msis uefi, but good board still
The B450 boards are compatible with a Radeon Vega CPU (without bios update). It is looking nice and provides a really good sound chip, compared to the lower priced boards.
I stumbled into an unexpected incompatibility between the second M.2 port and the Radeon Vega integrated GPU. The second M.2 port is disabled with this CPU! So i needed to buy an additional adapter card M.2 to PCIe.
The initial bios had some issues, but its mostly stable now. I don't recommend Asus AI suite since it seems to give my pc a lot of issues. Reinstalling windows didn't help, but removing the software suite did.
Excellent board, good features. If you get this board make sure the memory, in dual channel, is set in A2,B2.
Best looking B450 motherboard imho. Good features, good bios, easy overclocking. No problems so far.
