5.0 out of 5 stars Bootup with M.2 slot
Reviewed in Canada on 21 August 2020
A very nice motherboard, delivered quickly in a very nice condition, installation with AMD Ryzen 5 3600 was easy. Little challenge to boot with M.2 slot: what you need to do is disconnect all the drives on SATA, and switch to CSM mode in bios (cause my SSD was not configured in UEFI), once boot up from M.2 slot, connect back SATA drives, it works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars This B550 board checks all the right boxes for next gen
Reviewed in Canada on 2 October 2020
This B550 board for me checked all the right boxes.

I paired this with an AMD 3600XT which allowed me to use PCIe 4.0 which I used for my storage solution. Blazing fast.

Other benefits that I was looking for in a board which other competitors didn't have:

-Rear I/O for 5.1+ surround speakers or optical input
-Mysticlight for RGB control
-PCI-E lanes not tied to SATA use.
-USB-C plug in for front case I/O
-Flash bios button
-Huge heatsinks for heat dissipation
-instant compatibility with the new 5000 series AMD processors for futureproofing

Some negatives that I can't really complain about since I was well aware prior to purchasing:

-I wish instead of the additional LAN port it had come with a WIFI/bluetooth option - remedied with PCI card
-NVME cards use PCI lanes so there is no way to fill up each PCI lanes and NVME at the same time. PCIe 4.0 is on separate lane.
-I wish there were one or two more rear USB options though this is nitpicking

All in all this is a great motherboard, performs great, and with great MSI options like the easy to navigate BIOS and utilities, backed with MSI reliability on boards this is a definite recommendation from me.
