Good board for you budget build

8 November 2018
Asus is always amazing. Nice Bios, easy to use and comes with some nice features for your budget build.

Pros:
- Looks good and well built
- 4X DDR4 slots with plenty of space for upgrades
- M.2 slot
- LED support

Cons:
- Doesn't have built-in wifi
- PCI slots are place way too close - if you using a full size GPU you will lost one of them
- no support of SLI (but that's fine as it's a budget board)
- just two fans inputs

Score: 8/10

This motherboard is really good and has plenty of SATA ports. Unfortunately, there are issues with the BIOS that prevent booting to Linux with a new Ryzen CPU. If you aren't trying to run Linux, this is a great motherboard. (Will update review when fixed)

Great Motherboard

8 April 2019
This motherboard can do a lot compared to my old Intel one a few years back.

BIOS looks really nice and easy to get around.
M.2 Hard drive makes booting up and general use blazing fast.

The AURA sync is neat and the motherboard offers enough fan connectors for this price range.

One of the PCIe 2.0 slots will not be usable if you have a large graphics card (possibly the second slot as well if you want to keep good ventilation), thus, consider getting a ATX motherboard if you really need those expansions, or just don't use a high-end graphics card.

Great board for the price

1 April 2019
Nice motherboard, looks good, great value for Ryzen build. Easy to use BIOS and simple to install. Only downside is the lack of fan headers, there is a dedicated CPU header and 2 fan headers so you can only control some of you fans if you're like me and have AIO set up running. Otherwise I'm happy with my purchase.

Great MoBo on a budget

26 March 2019
Right of the bat, the MoBo only has one PCI 16, which means only one graphics card. But for those who only build one GPU (like me), this motherboard is great! It has plenty of USB3.0 slots and 4 DDR4 Ram slots.

Not bad

Honestly a pretty nice board for the price. Comes with everything you would expect from an ASUS gaming motherboard. Other than the USB 3.1 Gen2, there isn't really anything special about this board, but it is good quality and good value. Perfect for a budget 2nd gen Ryzen build.
