What customers say about "Features"
ASRock B450 Steel Legend Motherboard
  • Nice looking board with the features to match the aesthetic.
  • The aesthetic is awesome too, and the RGB feature can be adapted in any way you wish.
  • Great easy feature to adjust the lights etc.
  • However, if you are expecting more premium features from this board, you should look elsewhere.
  • My only qualm is that that RGB software for ASRock is a bit archaeric.
Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE ATX Motherboard
  • The rgb makes it stand out quite well. Great audio codec.
  • The io plate was installed to the motherboard which made it less of a faff to get everything in the case.
  • The build quality on this case is great very strong with a really thick glass panel.
  • Brilliant motherboard, nice lighting effect and very clean looking.
  • The one problem I had was with the 8 pin eps, it's so tightly in the corner of the board that I struggled to to get the connector in.
