I don't know which Mobo to get now to avoid problems like this
My Asrock b650e Steel Legend has been rock solid since day 1. Highly suggest that or something from MSI.

Depending on the games, some dip into the 30s and 40s
Not too shabby. Recently picked up a 49" ultrawide 5120x1440p and replaced the 2 27's. Went ok with the 3070 ti but i have a 7900 xtx on the way.

I got used to to Asus feature called Q-Release. Ez GPU swap. I'm surprised that other brands didn't apply that. So sad.

I think some gigabyte boards have a similar feature.

It does seem really nice though.

The B550 version with a 5800 OEM with Crucial Ballistix Gaming Red 3600 32GB kit with W11 has been running with no issue since 2021, I never updated the mobo bios either, just booted right up, set XMP/AMP/DOCP and that was it.

hello

i'm coming back with my issue, i need better mobo than Asus, Intel NiC 225 is so bad, its plague already on market. Now i would like to switch motherboards

There is 2 options with Realtek NiC

1) MSI B650 Tomahawk WiFi for 210 euro but i heard lately bios from MSI not good and bad quality, (maybe im wrong and last bioses from them are perfect)
2) Asrock B650E Steel Legend WiFi for 280 euro,

MSI seems has good an price/perfomance offer

Which one to get?

Thank you for help!
