Easy to navigate bios, looks great, good for overclocking, and has WiFi. Great board.

I mainly chose this motherboard as I had already decided on the Ryzen 5 2400g and wanted a 450 motherboard so there would be no bios problems. I also wanted a motherboard with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, both of which have been working perfectly. The RGB was a nice bonus and adds some pleasing aesthetics to my build. Overall I wanted a motherboard that had the features I was looking for and that I felt would last for the next several years. As of right now this motherboard is working perfectly, with no problems. I love that it has features that I don't even need right now as it will allow me to continue to upgrade my build in the future.

For my Ryzen 2600X, this seemed like the best possible option, MSI has really upped their game for the 2nd Gen CPU. Looks are subjective, but I really like what they did here, it's a beauty! In terms of cooling, it has the best VRM of all the B450 boards, great feature set, onboard WiFi, M.2 Shield and more! The BIOS is really easy to use and setup, only downside is it doesn't have negative offset voltage, so you have to play around with overclocking and see what is the best way to run your system!

This MB had all the features I wanted between BT 5.0, wireless AC WiFi, solid VRMs, and easy to navigate BIOS. It does lack USB-C front I/O, but given the complete lack of solid airflow cases with this option, I can't bring myself to deduct a star - especially when factoring how inexpensive this board is vs other boards with this feature set.

Good motherboard, does everything I need it to be. Do be careful with the ram height. With the placement of the ram sticks I was not able to install one of my AIO water cooler's fan. Overclock runs pretty smooth, with temperature of around 67C.

MOTHERBOARD: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC AM4 The motherboard is nicely built, has carbon fibre and feels like a very sturdy board, able to overclock my ram to 3000mhz without a problem, also you can control ALL the fans that are in your system in the BIOS. BIOS looks simple for a 1st time builder for me.

Great ATX motherboard with RGB support, inbuilt wifi and plenty of expansion options. A USB C port in the back as well as a USB 3 header on the board was very helpful. Since this socket is said to be compatible all the way until Ryzen 3, I can just drop in a new processor down the track to increase performance!

Really love the look of this motherboard. Fills up my case and has tons of slots for future storage and memory upgrades. The pre-installed wifi and bluetooth antennae work great. The RGB is also really cool with each of the 6 LEDs individually programable and lots of schemes already on mystic light.

I could have spent less, especially since this was the only part that didn't go on sale. But I like MSI and I wanted onboard wifi. Options were limited in this department.

Easy to use motherboard. It has basic post code LEDs and good over clicking options. It has RGB but it’s nothing special, kinda cool still. Decent looking Bios and also has a good WiFi card built in. Can’t complain!
