    from completed build AMD Budget Gaming

    Very impressed with this motherboard. I was a little iffy about this because of some of the reviews about problems moving past POST, but I've not seen this at all. The bios is very well laid out. The only complaint I have is with the stock AMD cooler, the first RAM slot is not usable. This is not a big deal for me, and certainly not worth taking off a star for. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good and affordable mATX board

    The board is a pretty good board with decent features for the size factor. I did have some issues with random usb ports being disabled but got it working again.

    The motherboard was very good and easy to setup at first, but soon after, I ran into the audio issues I explained earlier. Updating the chipset, bios, and installing the latest audio drivers didn't fix the issue. I even ordered a USB sound card to try and get around this issue, but that didn't seem to solve anything. I finally hooked up my MacBook Air to my pc with an aux cable and was finally able to get input. I'm hopeful a new headset may fix these issues. Other than the sound, the RGB is nice but doesn't light up much if you have a tinted panel.

    Some RGB and ample IO.

    from completed build Sushi's RGB alternative.

    Nice compact motherboard with lots of features. Very easy to use Bios and good fail safes which stopped me killing my rig when I did something stupid. I've yet to find a use for the on board RGB as none of my RGB could plug into it.

    Before choosing this motherboard, I learned that the bios on the motherboard were not yet compatible with the third generation Ryzen 5, but after I tried it directly it turned out that the bios on the motherboard were already compatible with Ryzen 5 3600. After doing research, the processor was not compatible because the motherboard was released before Ryzen 5 3600, but after a few months, the motherboard was released with compatible bios. RGB on this motherboard is only written on TUF GAMING on the bottom left of the motherboard.

    great quality for a great price. Wanted Matx since real estate is at a premium in my room thanks to the misses moving in. RGB is subtle but cannot be configured, its either on cycling through the colors or off. the RGB header wont sync my case lights to the motherboard lights either, I'll have to get an RGB controller if I begin to care about RGB in the future. The IO shield could also use some work. It looks great but a couple of the pins around the cutouts bent inward during installation, blocking the holes that they were meant for. I only realized it when I went to plug in the Ethernet cable and couldn't get in due to a tiny pin, bent them back with a screwdriver and all is good. Be cautious of this during builds though, definitely annoying.

    Got it on sale for cheap. Bios sometimes doesn't disappear when powering on, idk if that has anything to do with mobo

    I've heard bad things, but I like the bios, and everything worked perfect out of the box. no reason to say stay away from this.
