ASUS TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS (WI-FI), AMD B550, AM4, DDR4, SATA3, PCIe 4.0, Dual M.2, CrossFire, 2.5GbE/ax WiFi, Micro-ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motherboard Everything in convenient locations made my first build really easy! The only thing I'd wish for is a dedicated AIO pump header but the CPU_OPT works just as well for keeping the pump at full speed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Motherboard, great value and lots of features Upgraded from my old i5 2500K and Asus Z68 motherboard - such a huge leap in performance. Love the compact and well arranged board, everything is where it should be. Not much else to say, no issues at all. As usual a good value product from ASUS.

Questions & Answers

WiFi?

Does anyone know how good the WiFi is on this? Is it good enough not to need a usb dongle, thanks
Asked by: Tommytucka
The WiFi is an AX200 WiFi 6 chip, that would far surpass anything a USB dongle could do, I get great wifi signal and speeds on mine!
