Good motherboard in terms of style points but its large heatsink on the self really shat on me since it blocked my rear 120mm fan slot

Wonderful and colorful Mobo, The Mystic light really put the whole CPU above the average look. Totally Recommended!

Good board. Wish i would've gotten the one with WiFi built in but i get by with a usb WiFi just fine. Has a good amount of fan headers and SATA ports. RGB lighting effects are cool but some lighting modes don't work and it is dissapointing. The ones that do work are really cool and control over colors is okay 6 out of 10 for lighting software imo. 4 out of 5 stars overall!

Overall great board. Great overclocking support. Great cooling for VRM and chipset. Bios is easy to use. RGB is tasteful although I have mine turned off. Lots of fan headers to suit your build needs.

Motherboard: (MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC) I was gonna go ROG Strix, But the day i was about to order was also the day MSI dropped the B450 boards. Liked the features and its ability to overclock. Im very happy with the purchase.

Love this board but I wish I had sprung for one with more updated features. Having a usb 3.1 header would have been awesome. More 5v 3 pin ARGB headers would have been great.
Ultimately it does everything asked and it is great to have a nice I/O shield and some built in ARGB.

Works great, lots of support for RGB, fans and the like with lots of reinforced support around ram and PCI lanes.
Note: When we updated the bios to support the Ryzen 9 3900x it went from the red bios to a silver less useful one, but it works well and now the bios matches the build lol.
Note: Wasn't able to USB C header from case (O11 Dynamic)
Note: Had to move GPU to bottom slot, 1060 and 5700 both scratched the waay too big VRM cooler on the bottom right.
Note: I'm only keeping the mobo at a 4 because of consistent updates, but this motherboard was inconsistent and caused issues with our 5700 challenge from asrock, 32gb of trident z royals, and 3900x which behaved very erratic at first, I believe this is all due to the ram controller. Update it to the Beta version to fix all the issues WE had.

It's a good looking motherboard with a great VRM setup for overclocking. It's got lots of build in headers for RGB and USB 3.0 but for some reason no Type-C header. The Rainbow RGB lights are cool but MSI's Mystic Light software for controlling the lights is garbage and crashes pretty often.
