    I would go with full size ATX, but out of B550Ms this one is arguably the best. On the other hand you can get full size MSI B550 Tomahawk nowadays for same price tag (or even B550 Aorus Pro) which are much better. I would seriously consider latter unless it must be micro ATX.

    When have you ever used a 2nd x16 PCIe slot this decade? Or last?
    B550M is good, newer than X570 and not overkill with integrated stuff that you don't want to have die or not quite be sufficient, because you'll only have to get an add-in x1 or x4 card or USB device anyway.
    And overclocking is dead, so VRMs don't bloody matter either.

    But since it costs the same as better motherboard with better vrm, more slots etc why gimp yourself on purpose?

    It doesn't cost more. MicroATX boards are ~60-100. Full ATX are 100+ iirc.

    How is no 2nd x16 slot gimping yourself? You can still get multiple NVMe ones.

    No idea for how much it retails where you are but here ASUS TUF Gaming B550M-PLUS costs the same as full size MSI B550 Tomahawk and almost as much as Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro (this one actually costs 15$ more).
