Check Hardware Unboxed's video on youtube about the VRM's on this thing. It caused instability under load and BSOD due to how hot they got
giga are trash.

agree with this in terms of there motherboards recently, msi, asus and asrock are all better for am4 atleast.
Maybe you all should read a proper review and not some "influencer" on youtube. guru3d.com/art…tml

He has the cpu fan blowing over the vrm, if you are using a AIO or vertical air cooler the vrm aint getting any cooling. Either way it's still a cheap and poorly designed vrm, stay clear.

That 'influencer' has been writing proper reviews for 15 years. Definitely not the same grain as LTT or the tech showcase channels. There is a lot of garbage tech channels out there but HUB aint one of them.
Was looking at this board for a ryzen 5 2600 not going to overclock would it be okay?
Has bad VRM'S, aparently bsod's while under load..

Did you even watch the video?
This is a budget focused motherboard. 38 degree temperature differences between Gigabtye and MSI, folks you need to be more sceptical, the video is clearly skewed towards the MSI sponsorship, the only way you'd get that sort of temperature difference is is with poorly installed heatsink/thermal compound.
As the video states, most of the temps are meaningless for normal use.

Seems a good offer to me, a free ssd is worth £45+, even if it's not the best board (going by the reviewer not me), I've never seen that sort of variation in temps, in comparable situations. ie. similar chips/motherboards/casing.

This deal should be in postive figures at least, it's a great deal for those on a budget.
