Gigabyte AMD B450 AORUS PRO

The Gigabyte AMD B450 AORUS PRO Motherboard is a business motherboard that is $146.90 on Newegg as of December 1st, 2023. I think that this business motherboard is at a great price because its not too expensive but not to cheap to where you think that its a ripoff. This motherboard has everything that you would need for what you are doing on your pc.

This motherboard supports AMD processors and AM4 sockets. I also like how this motherboard can support a max memory of 64GB. Another reason that this motherboard is good is because the form factor is ATX. Also this motherboard has 7.1 channels and it has DDR4 ram. You will be able to find the rest of the specifications here.  I would recommend this motherboard for any business that is looking to upgrade their motherboards.

GIGABYTE Z790 UD AC Motherboard Review

The GIGABYTE Z790 UD AC is a gaming motherboard being sold on newegg for $200 but is currently on sale for $189. It supports Intel® Core™ 14th/ 13th /12th processors and has a LGA 1700 socket, you can find the support list here. It also has DDR5 memory support, you can find the full list here.

I was very excited when this finally came in the mail, I’ve been waiting for it for a while. The box wasn’t in the greatest condition but I won’t blame that on GIGABYTE. GIGABYTE is one of my favorite motherboard companies so I was expecting a lot from them. Other than the box being kind of dented, the unboxing process was very smooth.

Everything was perfectly fine inside the box, thankfully GIGABYTE has a 3-year warranty to protect me from anything bad happening to my motherboard. The installation process was pretty weird, even for me who has been installing motherboards for years. There was a missing screw but thankfully I had a spare. I think the installation is a little hard for any beginners out there but the best part is the motherboard’s performance.

GIGABYTE has perfected motherboards by making the best ones out there that rarely have issues. My motherboard has yet to crash and it works flawlessly. I honestly might use it as my main motherboard. It also has great features on its back panel. It has lots of USB ports for my mouse and keyboard, HDMI that works with my monitor, and LAN for my internet needs. Overall, this is a great motherboard for any gamer out there, I give it a 4/5

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 FORMULA (ATX) Motherboard Review


Three weeks ago I made the EXPENSIVE choice to buy this motherboard. I haven’t looked back since. This motherboard is absolutely amazing. While there are only 4 SATA ports, there are a whopping 5 M.2 slots. Knowing there is a total of 9 hard drive slots makes me know that I will never run out of storage with this thing.

When I bought this I thought there was no reason for anyone to buy this overpriced motherboard. The CPU and RAM slots are top-notch, the RAM slots are DDR5 8000 and can use a max of 192 GB. The CPU slot on the other hand takes 13th and 14th gen LGA CPUs.

There are an insane amount of backports and USBs on this, you can use so many accessories with this motherboard. While using this my 5 monitors worked perfectly. My $4k GPU worked flawlessly and it was beautiful. Plus the motherboard looks very good.

The power this motherboard can use is mind-boggling. It was a great choice got high-end gaming PCs. It is very expensive but if you have the money for it I think it’s worth it.
I rate it 5 out of 5 stars

After first getting the MAG B550M Mortar Max Wifi motherboard I was thrilled to see the amazing esthetics behind this creation. With the black and white smooth and futuristic style it had in my sleek black PC case, it fit the overall look perfectly. What I like the most about this motherboard is the amount of compatibility it has, with the ability to put anything from a Ryzen 3rd gen to a Ryzen 5th gen, I can choose the best CPU for the budget and the uses I need out of this motherboard. With wifi being built into this motherboard, I no longer have to worry about using an adapter like I was using on my old motherboard, allowing me to get the best family-friendly use at home. With four RAM slots, I can truly pick how much I need for my uses for this motherboard from a range from 8 GB of RAM to 128 GB.

Even with the integrated components of the motherboard, you have a wide variety of options. I like being able to connect my phone to the PC Via my USB-C phone cable, and with these integrated component options, I no longer have to worry about using adapters that don’t give me the speed I need. With the display port and HDMI port, I can hook two separate monitors without the need for a graphics card. Also, with the 7.1 audio this baby has, I can hook up the ultimate sound system that I can use when I work.

This is the rating this motherboard has on Newegg, which isn’t bad, it is pretty close to how I would rate it. Now my rating on this motherboard, based on the experience I have had so far with this motherboard, would be 4.5 out of 5 eggs/stars. I was truly hoping that there would be more expansion possibilities with this motherboard for the price of 169.99 on Newegg. Though this motherboard does have plenty of storage connection available, with its 6 SATA ports, including an M.2 Slot, it just doesn’t have enough expansion slots as I would prefer to have. That is how I would rate this motherboard and my review of it.
