Reviews
ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING, AMD B450, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, Dual M.2, 3-Way CrossFire, Intel GbE, USB 3.1 Gen2 A,ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent B450 board for the price It's always hard to decide how to rate something, but I'd say this board is 5-star for the price, 4-star for objective quality / features. If you look around at reviews and analyses, you'll see people mentioning the lacking VRM phases. This is only a problem if you intend on overclocking. Keeping at stock speeds with a Strix R9 390x, 16GB 3GHz Corsair Dominator memory and a 2600x, I'm not left wanting. Minimum 90fps on Divinity Original Sin 2, avg 140, is just dandy. Board temperatures are absolutely fine. Unfortunately there is no good software to contral fans as yet: The only desktop software is Asus's FanExpert as part of AI Suite 3, which is still a very bloated and temperamental solution. Setting fan curves manually in the BIOS works okay, though you can only set 2 points. Having done this though and set a high threshold for the higher fan speeds, my tower is 95% silent for web use etc: the lack of a more fine-grained fan curve means there is a bit of fan spin-up every now and then. Overall though a very good board, and good quick delivery from Scan. Nice selection of I/O, quality audio codec & SPDIF. Looks nice, too. Some pictures make it look very gaudy, it's actually quite slick. Should last me a few years. I'll update this in six months.
