Most Critical Review

Decent aside from annoyances

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: -CPU and GPU ran fine -Board looks nice and has a good amount of USB ports on the back -RGB

Cons: -USB ports would randomly disconnect and reconnect, has been a problem for others seen on reviews from another site -Compatible ram list isn't too great and required a BIOS Update through a USB device for it to even boot with my ram

Overall Review: Board worked fine in all of its key features but a big flaw that I personally had is the USB ports cutting in and out at random. I noticed it happened more with more USB devices plugged in but even with just the base keyboard and mouse it would still randomly happen. I've seen other reviews of the board on another site mentioning the same thing happening to them. I've swapped motherboards with the exact same parts and it doesn't happen anymore so it was definitely something with the board. It's possible it only happens to certain setups or to a few bad boards but be careful that there is a possibility of it happening. If it was a combination of certain parts that did it, I was using: -AMD Ryzen 9 5900X -G.SKILL Trident Z Nero 32GB 3600 (4 x 8GB) -EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra
