Quite good bundle, although personally, I’ve always hated Gigabytes motherboard designs and especielly their new ”Aorus” logo. That thing is just horrible.

From what I've heard about that B450 board you need extra fans to put over the VRMs not an SSD

Quite a nice looking board as it goes. Especially in that price bracket. Deffo looks higher end.

I might even be tempted to take that over the Strix, given it has ghey writing all over it.

I wouldn't touch Gigabyte with a 10 foot pole these days. Once their engineers get their BIOSes up to snuff, we'll talk.

They did a 350 board that was alright. Shame it looked like it was from 2009 (red and black).
