For the first time, I have a chance to review a motherboard from Colorful. This brand has been on the market for a long time, but is focused mostly on the Asian market. Lately, we’re starting to see more and more Colorful products available worldwide, so now I think it’s about time to present some more interesting products to our readers.
Today we will focus on the CVN B460M Gaming Pro V20, so a motherboard for gamers with a limited budget who are still looking for gaming features and exceptional design.
Let’s begin with specifications and features, while on the next pages, I will tell you some more about the performance.
