A while ago, we presented to you Colorful CVN B460M Gaming Pro V20, which was our first Colorful review. Even though it based on a lower chipset, the motherboard felt like different and unique, especially in a very saturated motherboard market. Today we have something even more unique but for AMD Ryzen processors. This review will present the CVN B550M Gaming Frozen V14 motherboard, which, besides gaming features, shines with white PCB.
As usual, let’s begin with specifications and features, while on the next pages, I will tell you some more about the performance.
