    The Tomahawk MAX has got everything I need. Installing it into the NZXT H510 was quite a pain because I did not have a magnetic screwdriver.

    from completed build Godot - My first ever build!

    Fantastic board for a fraction of the cost that the X570 boards cost, but compatible with Ryzen 3000 out of the box. Plus, after getting two Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite boards that were dead on arrival, the fact that this worked was basically enough to get it to 5 stars for me.

    My only complaint about this board is that the RGB is pretty trash. Thankfully, there is an option to just have the RGB disabled.

    from completed build 1st new PC since 2008

    Same as its little brother but without the need to flash the BIOS for Zen2. 5/5.

    from completed build Get up Samurai

    Pairs well with ryzen 3600, booted first time. Probably the best b450 board out there. Would recommend to anyone wanting newer ryzen on a budget.

    from completed build Budget creative starter build

    Best b450 vrm design. Can handle 3900x oc but wouldn't be the best pick. I also had this problem with the mobo that sometimes it wouldn't display to the monitor. I reinstalled the cpu and realised that you shouldn't plugin anything into the bios flashback usb port.

    The price was right and I had no problem with a fresh build using Ryzen 5 3600.

    This motherboard is compatible with Ryzen 3000 chips out of the box. Way cheaper alternative to x570, which would be overkill for the lil R5 3600 I have plugged in.

    No problems so far!

    from completed build Black Betty - My First Build

    Dropping a star as there's no header for USB type c or wifi/bluetooth support - I knew that when I bought it, but c'mon on it's 2019 and that's pretty standard on everything these days! other than that, great board, lovely design, easy for a first timer to figure out all the elements to it and great BIOS for a beginner.

    compatible with ryzen 3000 series the light on the side can be any color(s) you want and has lots of different lighting modes I banged this thing around so much as a clumsy first time builder and nothings broken so sturdy and reliable :)
