Decent for price with some shortcomings

Strengths of the product

- Enough memory slots and SATA port for my use. - Latest BIOS out of the box with all the necessary features. - 8 USBs on the back and 6 more available with some case.

Weaknesses of the product

- Only one case fan header available. I had to use a splitter and now two of my fans are running at full speed all the time. - The top SATA port is almost right beside the top PCI-E slot, meaning that a graphics card can interfere with it. Unless you have a single-fan card, you will have to press onto the SATA port with an uncomfortable amount of pressure if there’s anything plugged into that.

Additional Comments

It’s an entry level board that you'd expect to get for $100 Canadian. As long as you know the weaknesses, it’s a decent board to be paired with a mid-ranged CPU.

Great board for a budget build

Strengths of the product

Ryzen 3000 series supported out of the box (bios F50 for me in May 2020). Sufficient USB and SATA. Simple set up. Booted up first time no problems and performs like a champ so far. Bios is functional and modern, although a bit too flashy for my taste. 4 memory slots, heat fins on the VRMs. Lots to be happy about with this board.

Weaknesses of the product

Some might like more ports or whatever, but read the specs before you buy and pay for what you want.

Additional Comments

I have no qualms about recommending this board for a budget Ryzen build. I used a Ryzen 5 3600 and it's screaming along nicely with Linux Mint 19.3 Great bang for your buck with this board. If it lasts as long as my last Gigabyte board, I'll be super happy (12 years and I just took it out - still running)

Relatively inexpensive board with good features

Strengths of the product

Small mATX good for moderate and low powered builds Supports a lot of 2nd Gen (3xxx series) Ryzen processors out of the box Works great with most Ryzen 5 esp those with onboard Vega Graphics

Weaknesses of the product

Not recommended for higher core count builds Sngle M.2 slot Bios relatively simple with limited adjustments and provisions for modifications

Additional Comments

Has a built-in LED light strip near the audio connectors (shown yellow in the product showcase pictures) but actually glows Gigabyte orange when lit. You can set this Yellow strip to be constantly on, pulse or totally off there is also a separate header for directly connecting an RGB light strip or CPU cooler RGB (such as the ring on the Wraith coolers) Overall a good, budget friendly board with nice aesthetics. I used this board for an entry level build utilizing an R5-3400G. No problems encountered with the motherboard.
