This build shows it POSTing.

But Asus' CPU support list, is rather conspicuously missing the 5600G and 5700G, while it has the "X" models, as well as the 4600G.

One of the Newegg reviews for the board, from Dec. 2021, claims that it DOES NOT support the 5600G.

And Amazon's listing, says "5000 series, 4000 G-series, and 3000 series".

That is kind of weird, as many other Cezanne CPUs are listed. I wonder if maybe there is an issue with too much load from the integrated GPU? Perhaps, it would be wise to send a ticket to Asus on this board, if you want to use it with one of those CPUs. Though, to be fair, if buying a new board, why not go for a B550 at least?

That was, I think, the problem with the 2200G on the ASRock B350M Pro4. It was really designed to go with the Ryzen 5 1600, which uses little/no "juice" on the secondary power plane.

it seems better which I agree due to a few things one being lan and onboard bluetooth but the b450 has a m2 that shares ports and ram would run slower in it. I would buy either board if I had the right cpu. :) oh also if you get it from scamazon cant you return it if it says its compatible in the description?
