ASUS ROG STRIX B450-E GAMING, AMD B450, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, Dual M.2, 3-Way CrossFire, Intel GbE/WiFi, USB 3.1 G2 A, ATX is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully featured motherboard This is a good motherboard with lots of features including ARG header. 3 X chassis fan headers and 2 X m.2 slots. My only criticism is that the SSD flexes when put into the M2 socket and does not feel as secure as it could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect base for my build Ordered this as I really like the Asus/ROG style and i needed a wifi input. In pictures, it looks nice, but in person, it is soo much nicer! I would highly recommend this to anyone who requires a nice looking motherboard for a very good price! p.s the added heatsink on the lower M.2 slot is a nice touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compatible with Ryzen 3000 out of the box Solidly built motherboard, particularly like the pre-installed I/O shield. Mine arrived with a recent BIOS compatible with Ryzen 3000 which was great (a sticker indicated this on the box). Some RAM issues on first boot (if the onboard LED is orange, try using just one stick of RAM initially), but these were quickly resolved and the manual contained clear instructions on interpreting the LEDs. The predominantly black colour scheme is nice and understated (and the RGB can be disabled for less bling).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - First Time PC Build So i have built myself a PC for this first time this week. It didn't go perfectly but this motherboard dealt with the mistakes i made and i have not had any issues so far. The motherboard looks fantastic and has all the connections and ports i was looking for and at a great price here on Scan. The m.2 wifi card is also excellent and i was happy to find a board in this price range that included one. Overall i am very happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone building a gaming PC. Cheers.
