ASUS Tuf B450m Pro Gaming vs Asrock B450m Steel Legend

So just upgraded my motherboard from an MSI A320M Pro VD/S to an ASUS Tuf b450m Pro Gaming, however I'm having buyers remorse as I saw the Asrock b450m Steel Legend looking bad ass as well as having an ARGB 3pin 5v socket and better audio outputs. Which do you think is better? specially in terms of VRM performance. Though I'm only using a Ryzen 5 1400,but planning to swap it out in the future with a ryzen 5 3600.

you're not really missing out with the TUF if you already have it. But if you do want to go through the trouble of replacing it, I think the steel legend is a more feature rich board.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Thanks for the reply. It would be a hassle swapping it out though. Ill try selling this board if someone would get it, just bought it this month. Should have done more research. Chose the Tuf as I have a tuf Tforce Delta ram RGB ram and thought it only supports Asus aurasync. Dug deeper and saw it also works with Asrock Polychrome. I blame team groups product page. lol
