ASRock B450M Steel Legend Review

WEB: ASRock MSRP: US $99.99 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

It’s been a long time since I’ve had this board in my test rig and even longer since the B450 chipset debuted. As a budget and alternative chipset to X470, it is understandable that many may shy away from it particularly those who are looking at the upper echelon of gaming motherboards from ASRock. Afterall, quite literally my favourite board to date for the X570 chipset is the ASRock X570 Taichi, par none. However, not all of us are fortunate enough to have the means for such a board and the B series is where we must find our motherboard solutions. Fortunately, this isn’t just any B450 motherboard, it’s the ASRock B450M Steel Legend and legendary it very much is.

Here we are with the ASRock X570 Taichi, just over a full month after the launch of AMD’s 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs and the matching X570 chipset. Truth be told, it definitely feels like it’s been much longer than a month. As we’ve come to expect with AMD platform launches, plenty of updates coming in fast. Each successive update bringing stability and compatibility improvements. This latest entry in the ASRock X570 Taichi is easily my favorite X570 motherboard thus far. As such, we decided this would be a great candidate for an OC review.
