Is the Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite V2 good?

I'm planning on upgrading my current motherboard, and found a B450 Aorus Elite V2 for a really good price in my area. However, after looking at reviews, I noticed that people were having some problems.

 

The main thing I want to know is, do both M.2 slots work, can I use 2 M.2's at the same time, and does the motherboard have a problem with overclocking (I want to do all these things, but the reviews said they had problems with them). 

My current build:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Mobo: Gigabyte ga-ab350-gaming 3

GPU: Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 Windforce OC (Rev 2.0)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x8GB) 3000MHz

Storage: 1TB HDD, 500GB SSD

Cooler: AMD Wraith Stealth Cooler

PSU: Corsair RMx 750W 80 Plus Gold

Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA

It should not have a problem utilizing both M.2 slots.

 

Overclocking, for Ryzen I wouldn't bother. It will run fine at stock and PBO.

 

That said, as much as I like Gigabyte, I didn't like their implementation of BIOS for Ryzen personally on the Gigabyte B450 Aorus M I have.

 

If you're upgrading, I'd recommend a B550 motherboard. There should be a glut of them NBIB on the market due to newegg bundles, and they should be pretty inexpensive.

Great to know, thanks! I'll have a look at some B550 boards then
