Great with a few small niggles.

+ Nice looking board and back plate
+ Simple tuning using the BIOS
+ Very stable so far
+ Worked with Ryzen 5 3600 straight out of the box

- GPU covers M.2 socket but I was able to fit a very low profile (3mm) heatsink to my NVME drive.
- I tried to install a Soundblaster Z soundcard in the only (non-GPU) PCIe socket but this basically blocked the airflow from half of the 3 fan setup of my RTX 2070 Super. The full-size board would be better if you plan to install anything below the GPU.
