Gigabyte B450 AORUS Elite, AMD B450, AM4, DDR4, 2x M.2, 2-Way CrossFire, Realtek GbE, USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A, ATX is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great With Ryzen 3600 Bought this board last week for my new build after moving from a 9 year old i7 2600k Sandy Bridge system that had served me well but it was time to upgrade. Gigabyte being my last board as well and I've never really had any issues with them was my go to choice and this board for B450 popped up and after some research was perfect. Was very easy to install but one small thing is if you use the stock fan from your 3600 Ryzen make sure that the AMD logo is on the left side towards the rear IO because it just slightly covers slot 1 of your RAM. Make sure when buying RAM you check the official MB's wbe page QVI list the Corsair Vengence Pro RGB 3200mhz wasn't on the list and it won't stay stable for me at 3200mhz with the XMP Profile on. But I've managed to get it stable at 3000mhz and I am fine with that I've played GTA5 and Titanfall 2 for hours and I've not had one BSOD or anything performance is excellent. I like this board and I dont regret buying it it has 2x M.2 slots for future expansion and it was flashed with the latest F51 BIOS which means it supports Series 3 Ryzens straight away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great board on a budget This board is well made and what you would expect from a company like Gigabyte and great price! My one gripe is the positioning of one of the M.2 slots directly beneath the first PCI slot but its a small gripe and not a major issue. All in all a good board!

Is this flashed and ready for Ryzen 3rd gen CPU's (3600 for example)

Asked by: Dannn
Good Afternoon, This motherboard would need to have the BIOS updated to work with the newer Ryzen CPU's. We would be able to do this for you at a cost of £10+ VAT.

Would this work with the Ryzen 3 3200g?

Would this need bios update to work with Ryzen 3 3200G? Or would it work out the box no issues? Thanks!
Asked by: Barry88
We are unable to specify BIOS revisions. However please contact our Sales team before ordering, and we can arrange a BIOS Flash if required.
