Actually, I was told it [the Gigabyte Gaming Plux X570] might have trouble Turbo'ing on 3900X/3800X with it's VRMs. That was why I cancelled.

Instead, I was recommended two X570 motherboards under $300:
- Gigabyte Aorus Elite X570
- Asus TUF X570

From a firmware and support standpoint, I chose Gigabyte.

I pre-ordered it off MCS, if folks find a better supplier I'll cancel my pre-order.

Hope that helps.
Yes, this will work great with Ryzen 3900X.

Good luck.

Above reveals some key specs and things like VRM count, where the Gigabyte board stacks up well at 12.

199 usd is the MSRP. So this is just the canadian MSRP and other sellers have or less but just out of stock

This is MSRP, but there's virtually no stock available right now. It's also sold out on NewEgg's website.

Almost everywhere is sold out except for this eBay listing.

The deal is having stock, not pricing.

The 3900X deal ships in 1-2 months... what’s the sense in paying MSRP for this board right now without even knowing if the 3900X deal will actually pan out? If it does, there will probably be mobo stock (and maybe even actual deals) by then.

It's for the community of buyers of 3900X and 3800X CPUs, right now the center of mass is around the Amazon price error, but other people have these CPUs from elsewhere.

This place gets weird with it's complaints sometimes.

Nice post for someone who wants a very good x570 with excellent VRM and Intel NIC.

This board will run every ryzen including the 3950x.

I'm not sold just because of mediocre WiFi and more audio channels. If I want good audio, I won't rely on my board.

I'm also a 'good enough' audio guy so 2.1 is enough for my PC.
I like to have WIFI capability.....might not use it in the foreseeable future but want the flexibility/option of having it. Believe the Asus WIFI uses an intel chip for wireless.

Realtek lan...not a concern of mine. I don't do heavy network transfers + my internet tops out @ 150 mbps. Edit: Just realized that my current Gigabyte mobo from 2011 is using a realtek lan. I didn't even know this for 8 years, probably a sign that the LAN is not a priority for me.

Don't care for audio as long as it has SPDIF connection. Both boards have.

Asus TUF board has a usb type c on the back io. Gigabyte does not. Might be handy in the future.

Not sure if some SATA ports would get disabled with M2 slots occupied but.....Asus has 8xSATA vs Gigabyte 6xSATA.

Personally I think the Asus TUF wifi has more features. Software/BIOS I can't comment on. I actually currently use a Gigabyte mobo...no issues since 2011. Tough choice.

Good, I wouldn't recommend it for anything mission critical.

You need to live it to understand. Recommend Googling Realtek Lan issues. Intel is it for me.

Yep

USB Type C is available through the internal header on the Gigabyte.
Not sure if some SATA ports would get disabled with M2 slots occupied but.....Asus has 8xSATA vs Gigabyte 6xSATA.


All the bells and whistles won't satisfy me if I don't get stable high RAM clocks and timings, and good firmware support. There are definitely use-cases for the additional SATA however.
Software/BIOS I can't comment on. I actually currently use a Gigabyte mobo...no issues since 2011. Tough choice.


I'll rephrase. Your priorities may differ, but firmware is important for me (personal preference). Reasonable people may disagree.

The feature set may be different on the Asus, but the firmware support is arguably superior on Gigabyte.

Looking at it, i'll probably grab the ASUS TUF x570, 6 sata port is not enough for me, Im a data hoard, i always end up adding more drives
