  • Motherboard for a new PC build.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by QualityAndValueSeeker - March 3, 2020

    It had been time to replace my old PC for a while now. I wasn't exactly caught up with the times on current gen hardware, but after looking around I decided on a Ryzen 5 3600X cpu and started from there. The MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX came with high reviews everywhere I checked, and was recommended on many youtube channels as the most value for your buck alongside the aforementioned cpu. I paired it with the RX 5700 XT graphics card and other assorted components. After installing all the appropriate drivers and updating the BIOS, everything turned out working great. I am happy with the purchase, and glad that I was steered in the right direction.

  • Best bang for the buck if you can find it at MSRP.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SeanC - July 8, 2020

    Yeah, I was stir crazy and did a COVID build. It was my first PC build and was chore to find parts that were affordable and in stock. This thing is/was the highest rated B450 due to it's VRM construction features and price. ($115) It truly lives up to that reputation. Mobos are easy to enough to install so I don't need to go into that, just beware the IO shield the day those are just attached on the board are largely here with mid to high end B550 and X570 boards and need to just to be the standard. The board has got status LEDs a BIOS flashback option USB-C header plenty of fan headers and a nice RGB strip for those that like that.

  • Awesome solid board at a great price!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jace - July 11, 2020

    I'm a huge fan of MSI mobos. This is a great board for beginners to use. The BIOS is already set for Ryzen 3000 drop in. I just put in the Ryzen 5 3600x and was ready to go. Even though the board only supports 4 sys fans, you can use the pump fan and a splitter to power 2 additional case fans if you don't plan on using an AIO. Then go into the bios and change the pump fan regulation to smart temp. Been running it for a month now and no issues. The only bummer side is that Corsair icue and mystic light don't play well together, so rgb color coordination is a no go from what I've tried and researched. You'll need to run both programs.
