Three ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING Motherboards Standing Up, Angled to the Right, One Behind the Other with Yellow, Pink and Blue TUF GAMING Lighting

ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING MOTHERBOARD

A solid foundation for building the best AMD Ryzen-based system. This motherboard is powered by the AMD B450 chipset, and supports 3rd/2nd/1st AMD Ryzen processors. Even in its micro ATX form factor, this board offers quad DIMM slots, dual PCIe x16 slots, a PCIe M.2 slot, and six SATA ports—more than enough for you to build a fully-featured, full-power gaming system.

A USB 3.1 Gen2 port delivers 10Gbps bus bandwidth, and a reversible USB Type-C port means you can plug in the cable with either side up. Large heatsinks take heat away from chipset and MOSFETs. This motherboard also has onboard RGB lighting and supports Aura Sync, hence you can customize and sync lighting across a wide range of Aura Sync-enabled components and peripherals, making your build and entire gaming setup really stand out.

Great Value MB, Manual Needs Work 7/11/2020 3:30:40 AM

Pros: High compatibility with all current AMD CPUs, on the AM4 platform. Solid construction and good power delivery to the CPU. Has M.2 support at a low price point. Perfect fit for AMD budget builds with potential for Zen3 CPU, if ASUS ends up making a divergent bios.

Cons: Physical manual for the motherboard, does not list the order in which to install the front panel buttons, for I/O and USB; I had to digitally use their Japanese manual in order to get the sequence right. Physical manual also displays RAM slotting incorrectly for dual channel usage, and caused initial issues with booting (Was easy to resolve however).

Overall Review: Easily recommended to anyone looking to build a budget system, with AMD. Just be mindful and resourceful when building.

Easy Installation (Up To Date) 7/9/2020 5:39:58 PM

Pros: Inexpensive for the performance range (Can easily upgrade on this board in the future)
Worked out of the box with the new Ryzen 5 1600AF CPU
Bios Version 2006 Out Of Box

Cons: None so far, was a good price for what it is, everything went smooth.

Overall Review: Everyone has been saying "It's Ryzen 3rd Gen Ready" out of the box. I was worried about the new Ryzen 5 1600AF working without a bios update cause the 3rd gens run on the 1201 update and 1600AF runs on the 1804 bios update. The bios I received was the latest 2006 bios upgrade and the Ryzen 5 1600AF worked flawlessly and overclocked as expected. Hopefully this helps people looking for a board using the Ryzen 5 1600AF, as long as the board comes updated it will work no problem.

Very fine motherboard for first time builder. 7/8/2020 9:25:29 AM

Pros: As a first time builder, I had no difficulties putting this board to use. There are a couple of caveats, though (see the cons). I like the board layout design. There are adequate data connections for up to six devices, more than I needed, but enough for a small factor build. Having four RAM slots aids in adding additional memory later if desired.

Cons: One problem is a shortage of case fan headers. I overcame this by using Y-splitters. So I have accommodated my four case fans with just two headers.

Next is being able to connect front panel leads. I saw no diagrams in the manual that would help me connect the leads properly. It is printed on the base, but so small I couldn't read it. I overcame that by taking a picture of that section with my phone/camera and expanding it so I could read it.

Overall Review: Overall, a very good board for an mATX build in a mid-tower case. There are paths to upgrading later, that one doesn't have with many pre-built computers that are heavily proprietary.

Good MB 7/3/2020 2:28:37 AM

Pros: Performs well.

Cons: Space: Heat sink for CPU blocks memory slot.

Overall Review: The heat sink for the CPU blocks one of the memory slots, making it unusable. This is not a problem for the builds I used it on - as gifts - but it could be a serious issue for those looking to use all four memory slots.

Incredibly Sturdy 6/27/2020 4:22:24 PM

Pros: This is the motherboard i am using in my first build. I had accidentally scratched the mobo very very badly while removing an expansion slot plate (it was slightly welded on, cheap case) and scratched a small metal nub completely off and cut into two small copper lines, and yet, I am still using the same motherboard to write this review! I am very glad to own this motherboard.

Cons: Weird backplate thing to help hold the cpu cooler fell off, possibly not great glue or something. I also did use a cpu cooler infamous for being difficult to put on.

Overall Review: Would absolutely buy this motherboard again, and will never attempt removing an expansion slot plate with the components inside Ever Again.
