Amazing board. Definitely the best Mini ITX AM4 motherboard on the market right now, but you pay a price premium for that. Excellent VRMs and MOSFETs. Good use of vertical space to surpass the 10x10cm limitations of ITX boards.
And, last but not least, RGB!
Expensive, but you really pay top dollar for top quality, not just branding and shiny RGB. Great build and component quality, frequently updated BIOS, very stable. Only downside is the lack of I/O, but for most people its sufficient and the beefy VRM heatsink is what you want if you're looking to overclock an 8-core CPU in a cramped case.
Been a big fan of ROG boards and this is no different. This is my first foray into RGB lighting and the aura sync software works perfect with my fans/ram/feet/motherboard lights pulsing to go with the theme of this mod. Used the included overclocking software to boost my cpu and make it easy to use. I also just love ITX boards! Great to work with in these kinds of builds when the internal space is not a conventional rectangle of open space.
I have had my sights on different STRIX motherboards, starting with the B350-F, then the X370-E when I thought I was going to make an ATX build, but once I decided on Mini-ITX and noted it had WiFi (Which I need as my house is old and college isn't for 2 years) I got a bundle deal from Microcenter to save $30 on the MOBO+CPU combo for $80 off. It's not enough to drop it down to 4 stars from 5 but I wish that the bottom part of the board was glued on along with being screwed in. Would've made CPU Fan installation a bit easier.
Great motherboard. All of the main functionality is top notch. Only loses a star for it's RGB compatibility, or lack there of. They're a closed hardware that you have to use their own branded software. Which means my Case lights can't sync with my Logitech RGB keyboard or my Razer RGB mouse.
