Reviews
MSI MPG B550 GAMING CARBON WIFI, AMD B550, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, PCIe 4.0, Dual M.2, CrossFire, 2.5GbE, ax/BT5.1, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding build quality and strong on features This isn't the board I wanted to buy - I was originally going to get the Tomahawk but it was out of stock.and I wasn't willing to wait, despite the higher cost, which is more than I wanted to spend. I'm glad though that this is the one I got - in the end I won't miss the extra £35 but I'll be glad of the higher spec when I upgrade my CPU in future. It's got loads of USB ports including the newest gen and both front and rear USB-C, which is rare on B550 at any price, its got 2.5G ethernet, wifi and blutooth, the VRMs are way overbuilt and will handle absolutely anything you care to throw at them, and the heatsinks on them are HEAVY. There are no issues at all with VRM temperatures, unlike some last gen products. I got a shock when I picked the board up out of the box; it's got some real heft and feels like a premium product, and the integrated I/O shield is nice. Just be careful when you're holding it that it doesn't tip out of your hand - almost all of the weight is in the VRM corner. The design is attractive in all black (besides a tasteful smatter of white and carbon effect for branding) and, being a person who dislikes rainbow puke RGB all over everything, I think the RGB on this board has been done well, with just two small lit areas, on the VRM heatsink cover and under the chipset heatsink. They could be a little brighter though. It'll also link up with the RGB in your case and sync via the software provided. The software is good, it does everything you might want it to do I think. The only obvious (to me) oversight is the fan control - while it works ok, it's not as good as the fan control in the BIOS but overrides it and I can't see any way to stop it from doing that. It also stopped adjusting the speed of a fan, but this only happened to me once. MSI, please either allow us to disable software fan control in favour of the BIOS, or add the ability to select the temperature sensor used for controlling each fan, as can be done in the BIOS. My one picky complaint, or more suggestion for improvement, would be to alter the PCIe layout, for two reasons: 1/ As it stands, there is space on this board for 8 SSDs, which is crazy. On other boards, using up the second m.2 slot disables 2 SATA ports, leaving a maximum 6 SSDs if 2 of them are m.2, which I think is plenty. On this board, it disables 2 PCIe slots including the 2nd full length slot (so no 2nd GPU) and leaves just 2 x1 slots available (not counting the PCIe 4 slot). This completely eliminates a lot of add-in cards from being used if both m.2 slots are occupied. This might be fine as well, since the board has just about everything I think the average gamer could want built in to it, and you would still have 2 x1 slots available for things like sound cards or 1080p capture cards (but not 4K ones since they seem to need the longer slot). 2/ I think for the top-of-the-stack MPG Gaming board, it would have been nice if the 16 PCIe 4 lanes from the CPU were split between the 2 full length PCIe slots (8x each), and SLI were supported as well as Crossfire, just in case they ever make a comeback. This would even have freed up chipset lanes for a 3rd m.2 slot as well for fast storage which is going to become more and more important in the next few years. Pros: Great set of features Great performance Great build quality Cons: Expensive, like all B550 boards PCIe layout / disabling of PCIe slots when m.2 is used - though if you are a storage junkie this could actually be a pro Overall, I can highly recommend this board and I'm glad I bought it.
