bad layout for sata connections
Pros: Graphics card blocks sata connections and gave me a horrible time trying to sort everything out. Even a cheap mobo should have a decent layout. My son has a 3100 ryzen 3 and it is very snappy. 16 gb geil 3200mhz ram even with an old hd7950 3gb gpu this computer can play modern games.
Cons: bad layout, bios is awful to navigate
Overall Review: this does run 3rd gen ryzen cpus out of the box. NO need to worry there. It is a great budget mobo. I would give it more stars if the sata layout was better. I spent hours messing with hard drives that windows would not recognize and had to open the case and remove my gpu just to get to my sata connectors. That is also my fault for trying to reuse my ssds from the computer I was upgrading, but had the sata connectors been better I would not have had to take my gpu out every time trying to diagnose my issue. I gave up and bought a new hard drive and it works pretty good.
