A very aesthetically pleasing motherboard (in my opinion). Has a feature during boot that will tell you if the memory is installed in a non optimal configuration, nice touch I thought. Also from what I've read the B450 Mortar boards have good VRMs, which is important. Worked straight out of the box without any real issues. No onboard bluetooth which is a bit disappointing.

Updated the bios using the on board bios flash without the CPU and works without a problem. So far system is pretty much stable running ryzen 3700x and corsair vengeance rgb pro 3200 (axmp) in advertised frequency. Opted for b450 chipset as I don't want to spend money for 570 board.

Only real whiteish B450 motherboard there currently is. More than silvery-white really, so take note. As stable as it can get, well-packed motherboard, but LLC-vdroop when overclocking, is really bad. If not overclocking like me, highly recommended.

Coming from a mini-ITX immediate regrets are lack of wifi and bluetooth on this mATX boards, but thats probably a given on this form factor :(
2x M.2 slots are a disappointment as 1 supports SATA and PCI-E and the other PCI-E only. So I cant have 2x M.2 SATA drives.
No voltage offset, reduces overclocking potential - something to do with p-states (dont recollect anymore) and also unable to lower frequency on idle (cant confirm this bit).
RGB header is standard header cannot connect to addressable RGB jumpers (ie missing JRAINBOW header on motherboard)
Other than the above, the board is pretty decent, aesthetics and performance wise.

Great value B450 motherboard. I was able to get a stable overclock of 4GHz on my R5 2600 as well as overclock my memory to it's rated XMP setting of DDR4-3200 CL 14-14-14-34. The slick light colour scheme is also nice.
