ASRock B550M PRO 4 – High-quality Motherboard for Ryzen 5 3600

ASRock knows how to create a high-quality and affordable small form factor motherboard. AsRock B550M PRO 4 supports PCIe 4.0, ZEN 2 & 3 RYZEN CPU, GPU SLI configurations and has four DIMM slots that can handle DDR4 memory at speeds above 4700 MHz. Packing all these features into an mATX card was no easy feat. The elegant black and white metal finish will make this board look at home in any microstructure.
Unfortunately, this card lacks Wi-Fi. It has a built-in fast gigabit LAN, but on-the-go enthusiasts want to take an external Wi-Fi card. Fortunately, this board has plenty of room for these expansions with the additional PCIe connection.ASRock B550M PRO 4
The ASRock B550M PRO 4 also supports two 4.0 M.2s that can be kept running quickly and cool with heatsinks included. PC builders will enjoy Nahimic & audio with optional HDMI output, POLYCHROME RBG and an impressive range of I/O connections. Get 2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, a USB C port and a solid range of eight USB 3.2 GEN 1 ports. This tab has plenty of options for expandability despite its small size and even lower price at just $109.   Photo: ASRockASRock B550M PRO 4
