Great Board

Board feels premium and has a substantial heft to it. Gigabyte control centre made it easy to install all drivers for the chipset, apu ect. The VRM thermal solution is great having a large surface area to dissipate the heat even with the absence of direct cooling around the socket. The only negatives in my opinion would be the lacking variety of pcie slots, the absence of a post code readout (Given the price point this board is at), and the odd placement of the type c header on the board making cable management a little bit harder. All and all I would highly recommend this board especially if you can get it while it is on sale.

A bit on the pricey side

Runs ok. Does what I need it for. Was a bit clunky to start with, doesn't like older graphic cards. Had to get a new one, Defiantly needs a GPU support as on start up getting a lot of GPU beep codes on post. Give the GPU case end monitor cable a light push and all good.
Price was a bit on the high side where other suppliers had it for over a hundred dollars less.

Awesome B650 board

I wanted a full ATX motherboard with an inbuilt IO shield and this does not disappoint.

Really solid build, with nice heatsinks for the the M.2 SSDs, with PCIE 5.0 support in the main slot.

Ok, so it's not a X670, but chances are you don't need an X670 for AM5, and B650 supports overclocking, unlike the equivalent on the Intel platform.

The RAM compatibility has been amazing, no issues running the EXPO profile even though the RAM is not officially supported on the Gigabyte website.
Boot up times fast.
PBO and PBO curve tuning, are nice and simple.
BIOS update easy.
