      Great bord
      Great motherbord for people who don't overclock a lot. It has some nice rgb effects
      By Christinus Ho
      Great product, but needs better default settings
      It's a great and affordable for a mid tier pc. Only thing that bugs me is the auto setup. The auto setting for ram puts mine at a 2100 clock speed when it should have been 2800.

      Nice. Used for first build. All good
      By anonymous shopper
      A solid board
      The only one critique i could levy against this board is a complete nitpick: i really wish the usb 3.1 front panel connector was mounted so it plugs in horizontal. The board doesn't feel as flimsy as some others i've used from gigabyte and msi in the past. Fan headers are spread across the board, making it easy to plan out your wire runs. As for msi, the only other minor issue is that changing the led withthe mystic light, you have to run the program as an admin, save, and reboot. This might be something a bios flash fixes though. Very nice gray/black pcb makes for a neutral look that could go with most themes. The board feels beefy, and all around very nice!

      Great board. No mounting screws included. Helpful tips below
      First time ryzen build and i can say it went smoother than other systems i have built in the past with almost no issues at all. Great motherboard. It's well built and sturdy. Sound quality isn't as bad as other reviews had stated. The lighting effects with mysticlight software is pretty cool to. Overall the motherboard is pretty sturdy, well built and i would recommend. Helpful tips below for new ryzen builders on this board tips: #1 if using dual channel ram/memory always install in the 2nd and 4th slots "from left to right" #2 for those wanting to install an upgraded version of windows 10 "originally upgraded from windows 7/windows 8/8.1" you don't need to install the previous version of windows 7 or 8 to upgrade any longer, microsoft has now made it easy to install windows 10 direct and using your windows 7 or 8 product key to activate your windows 10 directly. Install windows 10 without a product key and when windows loads go to windows properties/system information page and activate while connected to the internet and it should allow you to activate. #3 buy some mounting screws to mount the board to the case as this board doesn't come with any needed hardware "at least mine didn't come shipped with the mounting screws as many other reviews stated" #4 i am using corsair vengeance lpx 16gb (2x8gb) ddr4 dram 3000mhz c15 desktop memory kit - black (cmk16gx4m2b3000c15) on this board. I had to go into bios after installation of windows and turn on xmp profile 2. Ram/memory was set at 2133mhz stock, after setting xmp profile 2 then saving and restarting the ram/memory then was set at 2933mhz "yours may be different" pros: the instruction manual was great with pictures to follow (do read the instruction manual) cons: mounting screws not provided, i am very upset i got this board and ready to install into the case and there were no mounting screws provided, i am lucky i had enough from a previous build already on hand.

      Good mb but mystic light is horrible
      The mother board it self is great, good build quality but the mystic light program is horrible and buggy.
      By Irmgard Philippe
      Easy install and looks great!!!
      A very simplistic board , veay easy to install the processor along with its heat sink and fan. Was easy to pop in the ram and graphics card . The board it’s self is really durable very tough material . I like the grayish and black color way suits my build i’d say. It brings some nice leds that come on the back side of the board . Over all the mother board has exceeded my expectations and had shown no issues so far been running for a couple weeks now and runs great. Have a 850 evga power supple , and xfx 480 rs 8gig hard swap edition graphics card and ryzen 5 3.4ghzts and 32 gig ram gskill 2800mhtz and 4 terabytes of hard drive space all segate drives 7,200 rpm and a corsair super tower

      does this MoBo support optical drives

      By Customer Service on 2019-05-09

      It does have SATA ports, so you should be able to install a SATA optical drive.

      By OutletPC Shopper on 2019-05-09
      Will the stock cooler from the 2600x fit?

      By Customer Service on 2019-05-09

      Yes it would fit, however you would need to remove the brackets in order to install that heatsink.

      How do you control the rgb?

      By Customer Service on 2019-05-28

      The motherboard comes with Mystic Light application that allows you to control LED light effects. There will be a list of auto-detected devices on the top of the screen. You can click the device icon to switch control screen between devices from the list and you can synchronize LED effects.

      Can I play fortnite at the very least 720p 60fps/1080p 60fps or does it have to be 2K with 60 or higher fps. I would like to know before I buy, thank you.

      By Customer Service on 2019-06-06

      The board isn't necessarily going to be reflective of the FPS output for gaming, that will be typically moreso for CPU and GPU. That said, this board can support both a processor and video card that can run 60fps on any of those resolutions.
