Very Solid by Klumwit
The ASUS B450 F works well for what I need it to and has space to expand for the future. I use this with the AMD Ryzen 3600 and works well. It seems fast and quiet. It comes with plenty of support from ASUS as well if you run into any issues.
Fantastic value! by Muhammad
For the price, I don't think there's another motherboard out there that competes with Asus' B450F. It works extremely well with my Ryzen 5 3600 and 16GB of DDR4 high speed RAM.150 of 293 people rated this review as helpful
Amazing motherboard! by Zahid
Amazing motherboard, shipped in 2 working days with the standard delivery. Works amazingly with my ryzen 5 3600.I find it very convenient that you don't have to update the BIOS to use it with the newer Zen 2 CPUs!147 of 290 people rated this review as helpful
