Pretty sweet board.

Strengths:

Looks very well built and aesthetically pleasing, no weird colours. Board is very stable and BIOS is easy to use. 3rd PCIE16 runs at x4 ( unlike some other B550 boards that only run at x2 or x1 and even may be disabled by using the second NVMe ) AURA is probably the best RGB software out there. AURA can be controlled by iCUE which is great feature for all those Corsair enthusiasts.

Weaknesses:

Had issues with RAM that was on compatibility list. Only after a BIOS update would it work. Luckily BIOS flashback is super easy to perform. Like most boards, usb2/audio headers are along the bottom so they may interfere with a GPU in the 3rd PCIE16 slot. They should probably have used 90 degree headers. WiFi antenna is not magnetic which isn't a big deal but I'm still sad :(

Additional Comments:

Overall I am happy. Switched from Gigabyte B550 board and found this one is much more stable. Gigabyte and ASUS are usually my go to boards but in this case I declare ASUS the winner.
