Ryzen 3000 Ready

MSI PRO B450-A PRO MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI PRO B450-A PRO MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - Cheapest guaranteed Ryzen 3000 ready ATX board - Doesn't have any of that RGB gamer-y look to it - More USB ports than I will ever have a need for

Cons: - HD Audio plug for the front case port is in an inconvenient place, my cable barely reached - It looks black online, but it is definitely brown in person - Slow to POST, 25 seconds from power-on to boot to the Windows logo with an NVMe drive - The NVMe screw wasn't in the included standoff so I ended up having to tape the drive down

Overall Review: I just wanted a full ATX that was guaranteed to be Ryzen 3000 ready out of the box so this met all my needs. Of the 4 cons, my PC sits out of sight so 3/4 of them don't affect me, and as for the slow startup, 30 seconds is still pretty quick. 5/5 would definitely buy again.

Pros: - Quiet - Braided cables for CPU and 24-pin - Semi-modular design made cable management super easy

Cons: None

Overall Review: Works with my Ryzen 3600 and GTX 1660 Ti, not much more to ask for than that. 5/5 would buy again.
