Colorful Rolls Out CVN B550M Gaming Frozen V14 Motherboard

Colorful today rolled out the CVN B550M Gaming Frozen V14, a socket AM4 motherboard in the Micro-ATX form-factor, based on the AMD B550 chipset. The board gets its "Frozen" name from its mostly-white PCB. The chipset heatsink that extends into an M.2 SSD heatsink features fan ventilation (something not found on most other B550 motherboards). The board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and single 8-pin EPS power connectors, conditioning it for the CPU with a 10-phase VRM.

Expansion slots on the Colorful CVN B550M Gaming Frozen V14 include one PCI-Express 4.0 x16, a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (electrical gen 3.0 x4) that's wired to the chipset, and a gen 3.0 x1 slot. Storage connectivity includes an M.2-22110 slot with PCI-Express 4.0 x4 wiring from the AM4 socket, and six SATA 6 Gbps ports. USB connectivity includes a pair of 10 Gbps USB 3.x gen 2 ports wired to the CPU that include a type-C port, and a number of 5 Gbps ports. Networking is care of a 1 GbE connection from a Realtek RTL8111H controller, and the onboard audio solution uses a Realtek ALC1200 codec. Don't like the white color scheme? Colorful has you covered with the CVN B550M Gaming Pro V14, which is an almost identical board that uses a black PCB and a chipset heatsink that makes do without a fan. The company didn't reveal pricing.

These are two different boards! The white board with the chipset fan is X570 based. The black board without the fan is B550 based. The X570 board is a rare beast, being MicroATX sized.

It includes two M.2-22110 slot with PCI-Express 4.0 x4, one is under the heatsink.
There is an existing black version of this X570m.

Your link ain't working sadly but this one should:

This looks to be the only B550 white/sliverish board for B550 sadly and I am laughing a bit because they are using the X570 pictures on the product page for the B550 :roll:

I wish this board would come to the EU so I don't have to import it and buy too much for it.

I was going to comment that Colorful is not living up to its name by releasing a while and silver theme motherboard. Haha.

Anyway, it is quite a clean looking board, except for the 2 fighter jet images around the socket area.
