ASRock B550 Taichi

Following its usual Taichi design scheme, Asrock festoons the B550 Taichi with gears along with a black, steel-gray, and gold color scheme. Aesthetics are a matter of opinion, but personally I feel this board looks spectacular. Black is the dominant color, but there’s enough gray that the board doesn’t feel overly dark, nor does the amount of steel feel overwhelming.

ASRock B550 Taichi

It’s a member of ASRock’s premium Taichi range, and therefore built like the proverbial ceramic outbuilding catering specifically for bowel movements. That includes large slabs of metal topside for everything from the M.2 heat spreaders to the VRM cooling. Several of those components are held down by hex screws, for which ASRock provides a handy driver. And that only adds to the sense of a board built to sustain a bomb blast.

ASRock B550 Taichi

The B550 Taichi is a stout board offering and is essentially an X570 Taichi but without the need for a chipset cooling fan and also sans Thunderbolt header. The price point is a strange one as the X570 Taichi is virtually the same price, but the B550 chipset does not have PCIe 4 lanes, which means you are limited to one PCIe 4 M.2.

Not only is this an objectively more capable motherboard than the X570 TAICHI, it does so at a price few if any others can match. For whatever reason, when it comes to bang for buck, ASRock is putting out strong offerings at every turn, and the B550 TAICHI is one such example.

ASRock B550 Taichi

The ASRock B550 Taichi — and other B550 boards priced close to $300 — are in a peculiar space. While the B550 Taichi looks the part and is, by most accounts, a premium motherboard, it still isn’t X570. But if you are willing to shell out $300 for a B550 motherboard, the Taichi has that high-end look, performs well, and brings enough features to stand with its peers.
