The only reason why I am not give 5 stars is because it doesn't have much overclocking ability. Otherwise packed with rich features you usually get on a high end motherboard.

If it was just the board this would be rated higher, but since this board comes with built in RGB I'm adding the required Gigabyte software into this. The board itself works fine. All parts are cooperating and the chips sets are staying cool. The RGB looks nice, but so far I've only been able to change it in the bios. Gigabyte does offer software called RGB fusion to control this without having to go to the bios, but loading it was such a pain I gave up. You first have to load the Gigabyte app center which keep showing a driver error at boot up and would not load any updates when I clicked on the live update button. I googled it and there are solutions, but it seemed like more work then just using the bios. I'm not going to change the color that often and did not add any other compatible RGB to the system to make it worth the effort.

my only complaints are with Aorus Fusion RGB software.

PvP games that use Easyanticheat software wont launch unless you endtask on the LED program running, which is stupid as hell, but apparently all the RGB boards have that issue. Also, Aorus Fusion keeps running over my trident z's program, which is also stupid since my ram will be color shifting beautifully then all of a sudden go mono red :/.

As far as actual functionality, its a great mobo with built in wifi and realtek soundcard, and built in IO shield.

UPDATE: so i did the sensible thing and deleted the aorus app center and rgb software. went to controling the rgb through the BIOS. super basic, but it works now. no more ending the SeLED task before logging into games, no more monocolored g.skill ram.

I am quite satisfied with this board. It comes with WiFi, supporting 2nd gen Ryzen CPUs, supporting AMD StoreMI, equipped with dual M2 slots and SSD shields, equipped with ALC1220 sound chip and RGB light effects. It even has backlit logo in the IO shield! What can I expect more about it with this price?

The only thing to blame it is the quality of GIGA bios, the bios is a bit poorer than I expected, and also the APP center from GIGA is of poor quality. However, these things are all upgradable, I hope GIGA would update BIOS and APPs in the future.

Note: The first M.2 slot that support PCIe x4 SSD will be disabled if you are using the two SATA slots which shares the channel. So if you want to use this M.2 slot, plug your SATA cables of other storages into the four SATA slots located in the left-bottom corner.

The Gigabyte b450 pro wifi is the only wifi included b450 mobo on the market. I haven't the slightest what the rev. 1 means as there isn't a rev 2. The rgb on the heat shrouds add a nice aesthetics and depending who you ask (adds performance).

I was a little wary of this board, to be honest. But I found a great deal on it and the MIR brought it down below $90, all in. (It also helped I was getting reimbursed as an Xmas gift)

I wanted a B450 chipset with onboard wifi just in case I needed the connectivity. This was the cheapest full sized option from a recognized name that I could find.

But, I have been (mostly) quite pleased with it.

Only issue I've had, really - I can't seem to update the BIOS past the F2 Aug 2018 release... (there's an F3 from Dec 2018). I am using the @BIOS application from Gigabyte that runs in Windows. I haven't tried flashing from a USB stick just yet. I'll update if that works out. On a related note, the Gigabyte App Center is kind of a trash application. I haven't used it to download anything else Gigabyte offers and I don't plan to...

Would I buy this again? At the current retail/sale pricing, maybe not. For the <$90 that this ended up costing me? Absolutely.

The system fan connectors are annoying – spread out in odd spots, and with only three to boot. Still, the board does what I need it to, and its preinstalled BIOS is nice as well

Good motherboard the wifi on it works very well, even though router is 2 floors under the pc. Quality is really good and I have had no issues with it. Only problem I had is that it only has 3 fan headers.

Good overall MOBO. Wasn't a fan of the BIOS with Gigabyte.

A breeze to build in. Everything is labeled well, and the ‘g-connector’ was extremely helpful for installing the front panel connectors. The RGB looks very nice and the software is reasonably easy to use. The inbuilt wifi works so well, definitely worth it. Only problem is the bios aren’t great and a tad confusing compared to what I have seen from BIOS from other mobos.
