Amazing Board

ASUS ROG Strix B550-E Gaming AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen) ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, NVIDIA SLI, WiFi 6, 2.5Gb LAN, 14+2 Power Stages, Front USB 3.2 Type-C, Addressable Gen 2 RGB and AURA Sync)
ASUS ROG Strix B550-E Gaming AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen) ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, NVIDIA SLI, WiFi 6, 2.5Gb LAN, 14+2 Power Stages, Front USB 3.2 Type-C, Addressable Gen 2 RGB and AURA Sync)

Pros: 8 + 4 pin CPU power for extreme overclocking USB Type C USB 3.2 Gen 2 2 Addressable RGB gen 2 headers 6 SATA ports Slightly reinforced PCIe slots What you expect from ROG aesthetics

Cons: Chassis fan 2 and 3 header positioning Q Fan and software for Ryujin conflicting

Overall Review: With: Ryzen 5 3600 (waiting for 5000 series) ASUS ROG Ryujin 360 AIO G.Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 CL16 4 x 8GB Intel 660p 1TB M.2 Seagate Firecuda 2TB ASUS ROG RX5700XT 8GB OC 1 - PCIe 4.0 x 16, 2 ARGB headers, USB 3.2 gen 2 header, heatsinks everywhere, LCD POST code readout and boot LEDs by DRAM were my favorite features coming from the Prime B350 lineup. The most issues I had were trying to get the Q Fan Control to stop trying to monitor my cpu fan but Ryujin has that problem and won't put blame on the motherboard. Even with the reinforced slots, a support for a heavy GPU is still advised as the 5700XT still sags a tiny bit.

Almost Perfect

Airgoo Addressable RGB PC LED Strip, Silicone Housing WS2812B RGBIC Rainbow ARGB Strip for 5V 3-pin ASUS Aura SYNC, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync Motherboard, with Strong Magnetic Clips
Airgoo Addressable RGB PC LED Strip, Silicone Housing WS2812B RGBIC Rainbow ARGB Strip for 5V 3-pin ASUS Aura SYNC, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync Motherboard, with Strong Magnetic Clips

Pros: Great price Beautiful lighting in or out of case Easy software sync

Cons: After about 2 months of use, one of the red LEDs permanently stayed on no matter where it was plugged on the mobo or if chained with another. Same for if the lighting mode was changed or set to "Dark" mode, that one red LED would remain on. All the rest of the LEDs still function normally.

Overall Review: In the end it's still a decent product at the price point. I ordered the cheaper adhesive type to give those a chance before I drop Airgoo altogether.
