    MSI does it again! This motherboard upon setup has a couple of issues but they are completely outweighed by the pros. Cons. My Bluetooth has a hard time staying connected and to make matters worse the antennas that come with the motherboard are small and plug into the back of the PC. This makes it hard to get the antenna set up right so that you can get a clear path directly to your controller or headset. Makes it especially hard if you have it behind some monitors. Another issue I had with this motherboard was the drivers in general being a little finicky to install. I installed the Bluetooth drivers multiple times before it finally worked the last time I installed them. Not exactly sure why this is but I had to install all drivers and recommend doing the same thing even if you're not using it. Pros. After getting this computer put together at around 1:00 in the morning, I cued up about seven downloads while I messed with my windows settings as it was a fresh install. By the time I was done messing with my window settings half of the games had already been downloaded. When the steam servers weren't completely and utterly high traffic, I was getting around 700mbs+ consistently. This was never achievable with my gigabyte motherboard previously. This motherboard comes with a lot of SATA and USB ports, as well as two super high speed m.2 ports, And if you're using two m.2 ports you can also use the PCIEx1 slots for stuff like network cards (not really needed unless it's an upgrade compared to the chip in the MB) or USB hubs and such. The transfer and read speed on the m.2 slots is unreal. I was able to transfer a little under 30 GB game file in less than a second.

    Perfect AM4 motherboard that doesn’t break the bank. This motherboard has enough USB ports to connect my keyboard/mouses/monitors/flash drive/mic and other usb accessories. The bios was up-to-date and I was able to use my Ryzen 5 5600 without any hassle. RAM comparability is also to-notch with this MSI motherboard allowing me to overclock my ram MORE than the advertised speeds. It has plenty of bandwidth to connect fast PCIE Gen4 drives and I got the full speed out of my Samsung 990 Pro. It also comes with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth to allow internet connection without Ethernet cable and to connect things like game controllers and headphones. Unfortunately I had to return this part with some other because I got an AMD GPU and it was crashing in games (nothing to do with the motherboard). I’d definitely recommend this motherboard for anyone that wants a well-built, feature rich and nice-looking motherboard for their next pc build.

    Easy to install parts. The only issue I had was the light built into the board, It takes control of my ram chips and gets annoying sometimes

    Over all this Motherboard is clean, very usable and honestly quality. The biggest issue I actually had with it is that I find the MSI BIOS very clunky but its okay enough. Component wise, everything is laid out pretty well and pretty easy to connect I actually prefer this Motherboard over my ASUS ROG B550

    I got this motherboard after the one from amazon came in busted. It was at my best buy store and all I had to do was go and get it. When I got home it was easy to figure out where to put things (very well marked out fans, ssd, etc). This being my first pc I ever put together I was relieved when it turned on with its little LED working. I have no complaints and it works perfectly fine for what I do. (I.e. ffxiv, triple A gaming, with web site searching. Not really recording or anything). I was even asked if I got a new microphone at some point lol. Recommend this to anyone who needs a motherboard in a jiffy. Ignore my crappy wire management, it works and thats what I care about :)

    The Motherboard is nice, works well and does all I want it to. I'd like to give a higher rating but recently MSI was hacked and now the hackers are selling source code used for bios updates online because MSI didn't listen to the hacker's demands. They purposefully did nothing because they "wouldn't allow themselves to be bullied and held ransom". Doesn't sound crazy right? However it is crazy because now anyone who has the source code can make viruses that look like genuine authorized bios updates and it could create a back door on any MSI motherboard that could be exploited even if you reinstall your operating system. The way things work also make it nearly impossible for MSI to patch things for boards made with the current bios firmware so if you buy this board you'll either be staying put on the out of box bios or playing Russian roulette by updating your board for better performance. My only advice is to watch out for fake AD websites being pushed on the front page of google and other search engines that look identical to MSI's website and to use caution when downloading BIOS updates because they WILL NOT be detected by any antivirus due to them having the same authentication as legitimate updates.

    Good so far no issues like the other one I got. Bought the same one that started shooting codes but come to figure out it was my graphics card shooting code because it was overheating.
