Amazing looking B550 board

I replaced a X570 mobo with this board, last week.
One of the main reasons for the purchase was having the Razor Lian Li PC-011 case.
Setup was easy, I did need to spring for another 8 Pin CPU cable but this was planned.
Be sure to use the white ringed rear USB port if you boot from UEFI to install a fresh OS.
SO far, a reasonably expensive mobo that looks absolutely incredible and performs better than my older X570.

Great Motherboard - small oversight

The board is really beautiful and well built.
Reason for 4 stars is because I had a few issues getting ethernet drivers to work and that you must use the razer synapse software to control the inboard lighting. You can't use the default taichi asrock lighting software, this is fine unless you have rgb fans that aren't supported on razer synapse. I have lian li bora fans and I can control them in synapse, so despite there being rgb headers on the board I ended up having to use the off board fan lighting controller instead of motherboard control. It's not massive issue just a bit annoying.
