Nice if cramped

by Jordan star_border star star star star

A decent all-rounder modern Motherboard. Very clean management of its many NVMe slots with a nice panel to hide them inbetween PCIe lanes. The only real downside to this motherboard is that its many plastic-encased parts can sometimes make fiddling with certain pin headers and screws very difficult in the corners, a tiny bit extra space would have worked wonders especially in its top-left corner. That aside, it does its job and does it well at its pricepoint.
