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.
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 :(
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.
