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

Exactly what I was looking for

I've only had it for a couple of weeks of light use

Pros:
4x DIMMs
1x M.2 (although another would be nice)
Plenty of USB type A
Aura sync for RGB fun
Support 3rd gen Ryzen without need for bios update

Strange:
Still has PS/2 inputs, I guess people still using the IBM Model M will be pleased?

Cons:
Board LEDs glow when it's off so not ideal for a bedroom PC (maybe this can be changed in some settings I haven't tried)
No USB type C
Graphics card will cover one of the PCIe slots

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.
