New Upgraded Power Design

DrMOS The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming B550-Plus utilises 8+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Processors demand.

Stack Cool 3+ 2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures and provide more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

Procool SocketCompared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS, AMD B550, AM4, DDR4, PCIe 4.0, SATA3, Dual M.2, CrossFire, 2.5GbE, USB 3.2 Gen2 A+C, ATX is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features, mediocre BIOS & software Overall, an average B550 mainboard with a decent amount of features. At this price point, I'd have expected the BIOS to be better, it took me a little while to set up the RAM correctly, it gave me a few failed boots at first as of this, and especially configuration of fan curves is a bit of a nightmare - If you are planning on building a silent PC, maybe check other mainboard manufacturers and save yourself a headache. The software suite (AI Suite) is not great, especially Fan Xpert4 is very buggy. Even when setting fan spin up / spin down time to maximum, the fans would still change RPM constantly and very quickly (and therefore audibly), so it took me a few hours of adjusting to get the PC completely silent during office tasks. It would not even detect all case fans at first, it took several attempts until I could even control them in the software, and the sole reason I installed the software to begin with was the lacking fan control features in the BIOS. If you are not as obsessed with having a silent PC as I am, it might be a great pick, but I can't give it more than 3 stars simply due to BIOS & software issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good featured motherboard Bought for 1st self built computer, nicely made motherboard with pcie 4 x16 and nvme. Manual and board it self is well labeled and shoud be easy to find your way around only down side is the fact the io shield is not pre attached

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motherboard Running with a Ryzen 3700x and Corsair 3600mhz RAM. Had to fiddle with settings in BIOS for the RAM to run at 3600mhz but seems to be stable so far. Good selection of features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motherboard so far Nice looking board packed with features for great price! Has RGB LEDs on the bottom right and works perfect with my corsair RGB Ram. Would recommend the board! Had few issues with the ASUS Armoury Create software to control the LEDs but after reboot all was sorted. BIOS little confusing but got there in the end :)
