No complaints at all!
Pros: - This chip is freaking fast! It boosts between 5.5 and 5.7GHz in pretty much every game I throw at it. -Temps are not as bad as I thought they would be. Average is 55-65C while gaming and around 80-85C under full load.
Cons: Overall platform cost for AM5 is a little bit expensive right now until B650 releases but honestly it is not a massive difference in price if you had to change your motherboard anyway.
Overall Review: Coming from an 8700K prior this was a massive upgrade even while running at 1440P. Games like Star Citizen, New World, and Assetto Corsa saw huge uplifts and no longer stutter. I'd highly recommend this chip if you need the performance uplift now and if you still aren't satisfied just upgrade to Zen 4 3D V-Cache when it releases as a drop in replacement.
Pros: -Four M.2 Slots -A good amount of USBs (total of 10) which is especially nice if you have a lot of peripherals like a VR headset. -Confirmed stable with 6000 CL30 RAM.
Cons: -I wish it had 6 SATA 6Gb/s ports instead of 4 OR I wish the third NVME slot didn't disable two ports when running PCIE mode effectively leaving you with only two if you happen to run an NVME instead of a SATA M.2 there. -A bit confusing in the bios with there being two places where you can enable PBO and Curve Optimizer but I just use the one under Ai Tweaker since it gave me better stability and my 7700X boosted higher (up to 5.7GHz instead of only 5.5GHz).
Overall Review: Overall I am satisfied with this board and don't have any major complaints that would make me want to get a different one. Everything is running great!
