MSI has tweeted that they now have the B550 series motherboards posted on their website. MSI has long been a leader for AMD based systems and now that commitment is paying off with the Ryzen processors.
MSI had to use more copper to handle PCIe 4.0 performance. MSI also has larger aluminum heat spreaders over the regulators to handle even higher powered processors. MSI has a heat shield over the M.2 slot so that users do not experience thermal throttling.
Many of the B550 motherboards have several fan control headers. It’s a wise install serveral fans in the low cost chassis so that airflow is adequate to ensure a good service life.
RGB (JRAINBOW pin header) lighting is available for all B550 motherboards. If anything the AMD Wraith Stealth RGB CPU cooler can be activated with convenient RGB header.
