Compact motherboards are getting more and more popular each year. When everything can be integrated into the motherboard, then we can save space and build a smaller and cooler PC for our daily tasks without sacrificing performance. This is what Biostar thought about when designing the B550M-Silver motherboard. The BIOSTAR B550M-Silver is one of its less-expensive gaming motherboard that comes in a micro ATX format, and promises a great gaming experience. So what else can we expect? This and other questions will be answered in our review.
As usual, we will start with a long list of specifications and features.
I would like to thank Biostar for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what Biostar has to say about themselves on their website:
BIOSTAR has enriched its competence in the design and manufacture of products such as add-on cards, multi-media and system products to develop the market and meet the demands of customers for more integrated solutions.
