Great Value!

I usually go for Gigabyte boards but this looked promising for the price and I'm not disappointed. The bios is fantastic in comparison. No problems with xmp unlike my aorus x470. Seems to be a solid foundation for any system.

Does the job

This motherboard basically has everything you need apart from Bluetooth or wifi. There isn't much else to say other than it's a pretty decent motherboard. I will mention though that I've had some USB stability issues with my oculus rift connected. Things like my keyboard and mouse disconnecting or freezing on occasion when playing certain games.
