MSI MAG B550M MORTAR, AMD B550, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, PCIe 4.0, Dual M.2, CrossFire, 2.5GbE, USB 3.2 Gen2, Mic is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expect to use for the next 10+ years This was the best specified board that suited my requirements. AFAIK it's incompatible with older Ryzen processors (eg 2000-series or 3200G/3400G), however my Zen 2 CPU (3100) installed and functioned straight off. The next (and final) series of socket AM4 Ryzen is expected to be compatible. Two m.2 slots, but only one is PCI-E 4.0 - and, I believe, the same goes for the x16 slots. I expect to upgrade the CPU, NVMe drive and single graphics card in some years time. I haven't overclocked, but did need to go into the BIOS to get RAM working at it's specified speed (the default is 2133 MHz, and Ryzen is happier utilising 3600 (if not a bit more)). I have had no problems. (Still waiting on the MSI "Stop struggling, start evolving" promotion to get a Steam code).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid board A straight replacement for a MSI Bazooka B350 board and it's been an eye opener to see how much the AM4 platform has matured. The 300 series board looks like a toy compared to this, with real VRMs and heatsinks replacing the token efforts of the older board. Early reviews indicate this board can handle the power requirements of the 39xx chips with ease so my 3600 isn't exactly pushing it's limits, While the 500 series boards seem expensive compared to previous generations they are far better designed and built plus its nice to know I'll be likely be able to drop a 8,12 or 16 core Zen 3 processor in there at some point in the future.
