MSI MAG B550M Mortar Motherboard Review

There’s plenty of new B550 motherboards hitting the market this week, and I suspect the MSI MAG B550M is going to be pretty popular. The MAG series has often been a nice blend of features and affordable prices, giving it a lot of appeal with gamers who want great performance without spending crazy money. It’s also one of the few mATX motherboards hitting the market right now, as they do seem to have become rarer in recent years. I’m a big fan of mATX, it’s my favourite PC case form factor, and you get plenty of features in a smaller package.
