Good value for the Money6/10/2020 11:19:57 AM

Pros: As a first time builder I was originally in the market for a different board. However availability due to COVID19 had me waiting for the stock to replenish. Decided to use the time to do further research, based on price and availability, and ran into this MB. The more I read the more I liked it, and for a little more I purchased it. Probably not your high-end MB (price wise), but I think it has high-end capability in terms of connections and outputs. I did like the USB-C output for the front panel (NZXT case). All in all, installation was easy (magnetic tip screw driver recommended), fit well in the NZXT H510 case, and allowed for good, clean cable management. Its best ability was, availability, in that it fully booted at first start up. I do like this MB in that it works with ASUS AURA as well as iCUE from Corsair for feedback and control. BIOs updated easily. I also like that I could get the MB without Wifi on-board. I'll look to deal with that separately.

Cons: Not too comfortable roaming around in the BIOs....not a lot of in-depth info about the different options, etc.

Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this MB and buy it again if necessary. I'd be nice to have a resource on ASUS BIOs. Information it out there but its piecemeal - there is no single authoritative source.
