High quality VRMs, low quality manual, no front panel connection helper part

Strengths:

Best VRM out of motherboards in this price range. Has at least 1 or 2 new ports, including pcie 4.0 m.2, usb 3.2 gen 2. pcie 4.0 graphics card slot.

Weaknesses:

Manual isn't written very well, making it confusing to figure out how to plug in various components. BIOS keyboard navigation is awkward. BIOS mouse control is buggy. no front panel connection header, need to plug lots of little cords in for the power switch, indicator LEDS, etc. Can bust your nvme drive if you aren't paying attention & install it with the risers as they're pre-installed for an uncommon, small size. 2.5gb lan has poor support & very limited selection for network hardware. Limited number of pcie ports meaning when new hardware interconnects com out upgrades will be limited.

Additional Comments:

Lots of compromises for the price. Bought this unit for the high quality VRM (power stage) for the price. It doesn't deserve 4 stars because the manual is pretty bad and it doesn't come with the little 10 cent part to make it easier to plug in all the switches & indicator LEDs. I rate it as "average" because it's missing a lot of quality of life features I've had in motherboards in this price range, for a decade now. I have poor eyesight and big fingers and getting all the front panel connections in place was a massive hassle.

Great Motherboard

Additional Comments:

Really simple to flash the BIOS for my Ryzen 5 5600x. Looks nice, works perfectly. Manual was a bit hard to follow at times. I like the RGB that can be controlled by their software.

Mr

Strengths:

High quality Easy setup Looks good

Additional Comments:

High quality product. Easy to install, even the pins are all labeled. I have no complaints about this board. I bought it on black Friday sale, so even the price was fantastic. As for the bios update and what not, I used MEs quick mount so I can't speak to that.

Solid Board with Good Features

Strengths:

Quality heatsinks on VRMs Good Connectivity Good Looks

Weaknesses:

On the pricier side of b550 boards lacks wifi

Additional Comments:

Used this board for both my own and my wife's build (Ryzen 5 5600x), solid boards easy connectivity and plenty of room for expansion. The positioning of the front panel USB 3 plug was somehwat difficult to make work well with my case setup, but that was bad preplanning on my part.
