Another great motherboard from ASUS!

This is my 3rd or 4th ASUS Prime Motherboard in a row, and it's just as easy to use as the rest!

Dropped my new 7600X in there with some 32GB EXPO RAM, and the only configuration I had to do in BIOS was to turn on the EXPO profile.

Easy as. All good. Love it!

Great service from PB Tech again toO!

It was cheap and the Bluetooth adapter has had some issues.

It was a very cheap board that had a PCle 5.0 M.2 Slot. I've had an annoying problem where the bluetooth adapter keeps needing to be troubleshooted so that my wireless keyboard could connect. I have updated the drivers on the board and this has not sorted the problem out. I have checked to see if it was the keyboard by connecting to other devices and it works perfectly.
