Gigabyte Aorus B450 Pro WiFi Motherboard Review

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Gigabyte has managed to make a pretty impressive motherboard for an even more impressive price. What really amazed me with the Aorus pro WiFi motherboard was just how many premium features there are in a $120 board, including some my $140 X470 board doesn’t even have!

From integrated WiFi, A reinforced PCI-E slot and some of the best lighting I’ve seen on a B450 motherboard this is a killer board at a killer value.

I was also surprised at the fact that I really couldn’t find anything wrong with this board, at most I could say the WiFi speeds were slower than ethernet but it was still fast enough for most users and if you really need better WiFi buying a PCI-E WiFi card is easy enough.

Another great thing was just how close to a X470 board I could overclock my 2700X, While yes I could technically OC higher on a pricier board the difference between a 4.1 and 4.175GHz CPU would hardly be noticeable unless you were looking for it.

 

I definitely recommend this board to any PC builders out there with a Ryzen CPU, unless you absolutely have to have a feature exclusive to X470 pick there’s really no reason to pick up a prieier X470 board over this B450 one so go ahead and pick this up and use the saved money on either your CPU or GPU.

Overall I rate the Gigabyte Aorus Pro WiFi B450 motherboard 5/5 I was blown away at how great of a value this motherboard is. Offering a experience almost identical to the more expensive X470 boards but coming in at $120 is something you don’t see every day with motherboards. I’m also a fan of the features that are included here as well as how customizable the lighting and look of the board is.

Once again this is a definite recommend for any PC builders out there whether you’re on a tight budget or not.
