ASROCK B550 TAICHI MOTHERMOARD 7/29/2020 3:18:30 PM

Pros: -Beautiful design
-High end features

Overall Review: Just received my b550 taichi motherboard just in time for my new pc build and to submit my review to get my rebate submitted. After reviewing both this and the x570 Taichi I'm glad I decided to go with this B550. Yes both are almost identical in cost but I felt like this motherboard had more to offer in terms of features.

Good board 7/29/2020 1:07:34 PM

Pros: -Very solid construction
-Auto OC
-The BIOS was very easy to navigate
-Plenty of everything, from USB capability to RGB lighting (existing and room for expansion)

Cons: My only con was the length of time it took to get the board due to stock issues. No issues yet with the product itself.

Overall Review: This is my third build with a board from ASRock. I've been consistently pleased with their products so far. The ASRock Live Update is easy to use to keep BIOS up to date with the latest version.

Amazing motherboard, but issue may only be me. 7/27/2020 10:12:26 PM

Cons: -

Overall Review: The B550 Taichi is an excellent board with a lot of premium features within its bios, interface, etc. Chipset thermals are really good, hovering about 35 C idle and 60-70 C under load. This board definitely competes (if not, on par) with its X570 counterpart, and delivers solid performance. It also has great lighting and overall a nice board aesthetic.

However, ever since I upgraded to this motherboard, my system would constantly reboot itself and not boot unless I do several restarts. This also may have been an issue I only have (I probably own a defect), but one of the USB 3.0 header covers came off really easily the day I received the motherboard, and the top gpu slot lever/retaining latch came off pretty easily too.

Great Board 7/23/2020 7:59:23 PM

Pros: This computer build was was a spur of the moment thing because my old system seemed to have some failing components. I chose this board because I went with the H510 case that has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port on the front, which this board supplies a header for. I also like that I can upgrade to the next gen CPU when it comes out, so I went with a Ryzen 5 3600 for now. Having Intel WIFI 6 and ethernet is a plus for me, I prefer Intel networking over Realtek. However, the Realtek audio quality is outstanding.

Cons: Having two 8-pin CPU connectors on the board was new to me. I had to buy a new PSU that supports two of these.

Overall Review: This is my second ASRock motherboard and so far I've not been disappointed.

Beautiful Board 7/22/2020 7:13:49 PM

Pros: This is way more board than i even know what to do with. But i only build once every 5-10 years, so this beast will last me.

Very Sturdy and rigid!
Was never one for RGB lights, but now its very cool how they glow
Plenty of fan ports throughout
USB-C front port is a nice upgrade from my old mobo
without me OCing, the A-Tuning already has my Ryzen 5 3600 running at 4.0
paired beautifully with my Taichi OC+ GPU, self boosting to 1990+
VRM works beyond belief
mobo never hotter than 35C

The Tuning software is very helpful to tweak my fans and other performance. Bios was SUPER well laid out during boot up and Win10 install

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Ryzen 5 3600 (with stock fan)
Sabrent Rocket 1TB M.2 & WD Black SN750 500GB M.2
Taichi OC+ GPU
Trident Z 3200 CAS14
Antec NineHundred Case (with stock fans-those'll be my next upgarde)

This review for ASRock review rebate program 7/16/2020 12:28:30 PM

Pros: - Looks
- Build quality
- No chip set fan like the x570. I would've bought the x570 as well but it was out of stock for a while.

Cons: Took a month after I ordered for it to be delivered.

Overall Review: This review for ASRock review rebate program. I am happy with the board and hopefully everything works going forward.

Review for ASRock Review Rebate Program 7/16/2020 7:55:28 AM

Pros: The ASRock Taichi B550 Motherboard has more than I will ever need, but since I only build new PC's once in a while, I decided to buy the best available motherboard in the B550 series. Everything is running smooth and was easy to install and set up, and I can't go without mentioning how awesome it looks, way better than I'm used to.

Cons: My only con is, and this goes for every manufacture right now is, I don't need a CD Rom for drivers, I need a USB thumb-drive. I had to use my old computer that has an optical drive to update the drivers in my new PC that does not have an optical drive, and most new PC's do not have them anymore. But that has nothing to do with the performance.

Overall Review: For me the ASRock B550 Taichi has been amazing and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Built tough and looks great! 7/15/2020 10:06:52 PM

Pros: - 16 power phase
- USB C header for case
- Tough Aluminum heatsink
- Nichicon caps

Cons: - None so far

Overall Review: This review is for ASRock review rebate program. I just received it and just got it all setup. So far so good. I was due for a new computer build and this is the mobo that I decided on.
