Dead Within 2 Days 8/15/2020 1:15:27 PM

Pros: Easy to build with

Cons: It died within 2 days of normal, stock use

Overall Review: Normally I would consider this a fluke and let it go, but 2/3 of the B550 Gigabyte boards my friend group has ordered recently have died in short order. This one also took my brand new CPU with it. I would not recommend purchasing any B550 model from Gigabyte currently.

Works great out of box w/ ryzen 5 3600 8/15/2020 9:04:03 AM

Pros: No problems installing new ryzen 5 3600.
First time i get a mobo from New egg that has not been unsealed. Box was dented when it arrived, but no damage to contents. Really it was not cheap board but hey what can we say about the current state of the economy. Everything is just more expensive. Has enough features and its gigabyte. Good quality could have expected more on the audio front maybe wifi for this price. Maybe some better RGB LED support in the BIOS. I could have gotten an Asrok for less but I have never had good luck with asus products... MSI might be another option but again i’ve been unimpressed software issues with those motherboards... anyhow. I would buy again or get a smaller board for less money from gigabyte... i think b350 if you can get one you can get by with a ryzen 3 on that for a small performance loss... really though i. Reality those aren’t even for sale anymore.

Cons: Forced to upgrade from x370 board and bios was not able todo generational gap jump becuz cpu was not compatible. Amd should be more cautious about this. I would have bought a 2600 or 2700 ryzen instead of wasting more money on a motherboard. However im happy to say it’s a good future protected for the next gen cpu.

Overall Review: 4.5 eggs

Setup without a hitch. 7/26/2020 5:01:07 AM

Pros: This is a good Mobo for mild over-clocking with a Ryzen 3600.
The overclocked profile on the memory hit the stated 3600mhz on the package.
The built in IO shield was nice.

Cons: It could use one more system fan header.
Only 4 Sata cable connections
The main PCIe connector was not reinforced. you would probably want to limit it to a smaller card. I used a 5500XT. But, I think a 5600XT would be fine.

Overall Review: I would recommend this board for a budget to moderate build. Ryzen 3600, 3600X, 3600XT or 3700X
