BIOSTAR B550MH AM4 Motherboard Review

biostar, biostar nepal, biostar b550mh, motherboard price in nepal

AMD’s new B550 chipset should lead the way for some great budget-oriented builds, if it wasn’t for many B550 motherboards being so expensive. Now, Biostar has come out with its B550HM, which comes as a rather sparse option with almost no goodies to be found — but it does have the benefits of the B550 platform.

As the board is centered around the AM4 socket, it comes with support for all current-gen Ryzen 3000 CPUs and the next-gen Ryzen 4000 chips. Wired to the socket are two DDR4 slots and one PCI-Express 4.0 slot for graphics cards. Naturally, an M.2 slot is also provided with PCIe 4.0 support.

What comes in the Box

The BIOSTAR B550MH comes packed inside a standard motherboard packaging. The product comes with the following items inside:

  • Quick installation guide

Firmware Interface of Best Budget Motherboard in Nepal

BIOSTAR’s UEFI of choice is as simple as it gets for the B550MH. This is a 4:3 interface with no bling or whatsoever.

There are 6 main menus here but the most important one – at least for us, is the Tweaker menu. This is a simple CPU and memory overlocking feature found within the board. Nothing exceptional here really but at the very least we got LLC.

Overclocking and Underclocking Biostar B550Mh

There are two ways to overclock and underclock any compatible unlocked AMD Ryzen processors on a B550 motherboard. One way is to do it within the UEFI and the other is via the AMD Ryzen Master. Both works well, but we prefer via UEFI since it is way easier to use.

Summary of Biostar B550MH

The BIOSTAR B550MH is simplicity in its most physical form – which means it should also appeal to system builders looking for the most basic motherboards to go with their build. Of course you still have to factor in the lack of extra DIMM slots, the lack of RGB lighting support out of the box and the limited number of fan headers.

At its heart is the B550 chipset and for half the price of other competing products with the same chipset, this is a steal – performance wise. I can’t vouch for overclocking though since even the mightiest VRM requires a good cooling solution when in stress.

Build quality and layout wise, BIOSTAR products are one of the best at their respective price points. I think it’s high time for consumers to quit thinking that lesser known brands have lesser quality components. The BIOSTAR TP67XE for example is one of the most iconic motherboards from the company and that is a decade old beast.

With a retail price of Rs.18500 the BIOSTAR B550MH Ver. 6.0 is simply put affordable. Something that most B550 motherboards should be in the first place. It comes with a few caveats though.
