    4.0 out of 5 stars okay product
    Still trying it out. Not sure. Seems to be okay. Haven’t had any issues with it yet.

    4.0 out of 5 stars I bought the wrong generation by accident but it still does the job fine
    By my own mistake I purchased this GEN 3 motherboard when I should’ve been looking for a GEN 4 motherboard but aside from that user error this motherboard is A-okay!

    The only issue is, I had trouble with my M.2 NVMe SSD because the stock stand-off was set up for a much larger ssd. My solution was to just use a stand off from a dead motherboard I had lying around but I never tried to unscrew the original stand-off out. I personally would’ve liked if there was space for another NVMe drive on the motherboard but it’s not the biggest deal in the world. My computer runs fine off of it but I will 100% be upgrading from a GEN 3 to a GEN 4 in the future!

    If you need a decent motherboard that’ll support 3rd Gen Ryzen and that’s it, then you’re golden! Definitely recommend as I personally didn’t run into any other issues plus the motherboard came with a cool MSI sticker lol!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Didn’t realize there weren’t Bluetooth or WiFi
    I didn’t realize these don’t have Bluetooth or WiFi. That’s totally my fault. I had to purchase a WiFi/Bluetooth card. After that expense, I could have simply gone with another MSI X570S Edge Max WiFi board. That’s what I get for assuming. 🙁

    4.0 out of 5 stars No Go for Hive OS
    I spent many an hour troubleshooting a boot issue with Hive OS. If that’s your planned use of this motherboard, find another motherboard. This problem appears to effect all of the 500 series or at least the B550 and B570. I’ve got multiple MSI B450 motherboards running on Hive and they work perfect. So the B450 is a great option if available.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very reliable and good value.
    I bought this for around $100, which is honestly a steal for this motherboard. Plenty of IO, locking PCIE slots, onboard graphics (if you use them.) This thing is very reliable, i’ve never had a failed boot because of this.

    4.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for
    This is a great motherboard for a first/budget build, especially if you are a gamer. I have been using it for about a month now and have not run into any issues while gaming. With that being said, the quality of the board is pretty cheap. The I/O shield was a pain to install because the little prongs, that are supposed to act as “springs”, were pushing on the motherboard, making it difficult to screw in. Another thing I should call out, some of the letters in GAMING at the bottom of the board are very dim.
