Everything you need

Got this from recommendation for my build in store. Seems to be working great. It looks awesome, the lighting is irrelevant for me but if you've got a visible interior it's a nice feature. Plenty of features for me and pairs well with my fairly modest build.
The only thing that a first time builder like me struggled with was there appears to only be a lock-down bit at one end off the ram inputs but after a bit of force there's been no issue and ram seems secure.

RGB is an issue

A great replacement

My old motherboard died on me, and this one was easy to instal, and easy to connect my components to. Although it did take a while to find the ports for the power and restart buttons for the case. Nice LEDs, would be better if I had a window pane side panel. Would recommend, very nice.
