Does what it says on the box

I've been using the motherboard daily for more than one month with a Ryzen 5 3600.
The part works well with the third generation processor.
It's a budget MB, so somewhat lacking on advanced features such as WIFI.
My only gripe is the lack of fan headers - it only has two so if you're planning on having more than two fans, you will need a cable splitter or the guts to cut some wires and daisy-chain them together.
Otherwise, it does what it says on the box and does it well.

Good board for you budget build

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

Small and basic motherboard

Worked out of the box with a Ryzen 5 3600. Good number of usb ports. Only has 2 case fan headers which is a bugger as my case has 3 preinstalled fans so I'll have to get a splitter at some point. It's going to be a tight squeeze to fit a network card into the empty Pcie slot above the graphics card so will try a low profile bracket card if I can find one. Yellow lighting on the bottom left is very dim and hidden behind my graphics card. 4x ram slots is great for future upgrades and an m.2 slot is an awesome bonus. After a month of use, happy overall.

Unreliable

Boy, has this board given me trouble! After 2 months of using this MB, my PC would not boot after it mysteriously turned itself off. After a lot of troubleshooting, it ended up being the motherboards fault. It has since been replaced with the exact same MB after a refund and it has worked since. However, a couple of the USB ports occasionally stop working for a moment so whatever I have plugged into those slots disconnects and reconnects all to often. This can be a real pain if, like me, you have a USB wifi adapter. I do not recommend this board.

Basic Motherboard with only two fan headers and PS/2 connectors

Rather disappointed that MoBo had only two fan headers and also has PS2 style connectors in the back plane for Keyboard and Mouse - unusual MoBo given that such a keyboard or mouse is hard to find. Rest of the USB ports are all 3.0 and 3.1.

I have 4 DIMMs of G- Skill Ripjaws 4GB at 2400 MHz but on this MoBo they are running at 2133 MHz. Also ASUS has only provided one BIOS upgrade that also in 2019.

Better to do a comparison with other MoBo at similar price points.

Good cheap board

Great mobo with PCIE m.2 (as opposed to SATA) which provides the best speeds.
Has all the basic features needed in a build. The only thing I've run into is that it only has 1 PCIE x16 which might annoy me down the track. If you have a gaming video card, it will likely block one of the PCIE x1 slots - unless you get an extension.
