Great pair with AMD Ryzen 3950X! 9/12/2020 10:30:46 AM

Pros: -Simple installation
-Easy bios setting
-Plentiful USB ports
-2 USB 10G (with one being USB-C)

Cons: -HDMI and Display port didn't work out of the box... still doesn't work now... I reached out to support and they couldn't figure it out.
-I had to wait for my dedicated video card GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER to arrive in order to have display to my monitor.

Overall Review: Overall, it's a pretty fast computer. Not the first computer I've built... but may be the last. Would have been a 5 star motherboard if it hadn't been for the HDMI and Display Port not working out of the box. I didn't have the patience to return and wait for a new motherboard so I just decided to keep it to test with my dedicated video card I ordered. Since my RTX 2070 worked, I just didn't bother going through the hassle, as this computer will primarily be used for intensive video editing and such, so I would most likely never use the onboard graphics anyways.

Super fast, easy setup (other than no display), runs my CPU well, plentiful of needed ports, I can't ask for more (except for a working display to help me set up faster).

Good motherboard but I’m an Idiot 9/6/2020 7:33:24 AM

Pros: it’s good motherboard because it has RGB which obviously gives you 400+ more frames, also has more than 1 m.2 slots

Cons: One of the Fan cases’s RGB doesn’t work but it might be my fault because i managed to mess up building the pc by installing the wires in the wrong place(it was my first time building a pc), also the motherboard’s name doesn’t appear on the hardware monitor which honestly bothers me because I can’t see the motherboard’s temperature and for some reason modern warfare sometimes crashes even tho i have a ryzen 7 3800x processor with an rtx 2080 super

Overall Review: A great motherboard overall, the Rgb’s nice and thats all I can say because I’m just a beginner and don’t know much

Excellent 8/25/2020 5:57:09 PM

Pros: -Board looks sleek
-Heat sinks are massive
-Gen 4.0 PCIe
-Great VRMs
-Wifi 6
-2.5 Ethernet
-Headers and connection placement were perfect for my case

Cons: -Wasn't a big fan of the bios bootup screen of the racing car.

Overall Review: Easy to build with. Bios was easy to navigate and OC settings were very straight foward. Bought this motherboard primary for its Gen 4 PCIe and its onboard wifi which is very nice. RGB with its mystic lighting pairs with my other components very flawlessly.

Best B550 Motherboard for the Price! 8/11/2020 5:07:38 PM

Pros: -Terrific all-rounder of a motherboard.
-Great value for the features you get and the relatively low cost compared to other high-end B550 boards.
-Outstanding power delivery compared to previous B450 models.
-Onboard WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5- it doesn't get any more convenient!
-Major benefit for my needs- Front Panel USB 3.2 gen 2, type-c header.
-For those who use it, this motherboard has 2 main lighting zones, on the IO cover and chipset heatsink, and both are very vibrant.
-2 Addressable RGB headers, -1 RGB header, -1 Corsair RGB header.

Cons: ~No major cons, really.
-Although it IS optional, MSI Dragon Center is a bit of a clunky program. Minor con for an otherwise outstanding motherboard.

Overall Review: I originally had my heart set on a different B550 motherboard, one from another brand, when I first heard about B550 rumors and leaks. It turned out that the motherboard I was looking at was too expensive for my budget so I evaluated my other options and figured that this motherboard was the best. The B550 Gaming Carbon Wifi has most, if not all, of the same features from that other motherboard I had originally looked at- except this motherboard is affordable! Incredible value! One of my main factors I considered when choosing a motherboard is front panel USB type-c support. This motherboard has it! Whether you're a fan of MSI or not, the B550 gaming carbon wifi is a no-brainer.
I included an image of this motherboard inside my new PC. All the lights are controlled using MSI Dragon Center to create a stunning neon blue look.
