Has anyone picked this up and used it in a build yet? First impressions?

It's sitting beside me waiting for a rig build.

Meanwhile I'm waiting for the final piece, a 5700 XT with a proper stock cooler, before this baby goes to prod.

After the most recent teardown that praised the Aorus Elite, it's been selling out quickly.

Call your local CanadaComputers and see if a special order is available

Consider the Asus TUF X570, not as good IMO, but pretty solid.

i actually might sit and wait for the elite...that is if i dont find an affordable x570 board with 2.5gbps lan...
just realized there are some mid range models with that feature and i kinda want to use it since i'm on bell 1.5g.

It's easier to just find a 10Gbps card on Amazon, but I respect waiting.

If your modem supports mellanox.

i haven't done too much research into this, but the 10gbps cards i found were more than the difference between elite and master. (usually$200?)

Hmmm

edit: i take that back, cheapest is around $130 for the card.

I found one at $60 but it's mellanox, which may not work with your modem.

May be easier to just upgrade your motherboard.

So what's the best (or cheapest) B450 MOBO for 3800x if I don't need PCIE 4.0 ?

B450 TOMAHAWK can be had for $150-60 if you can find it in stock.

Newegg has the 470 Taichi on sale right now for $215 after rebate. - https://www.newegg.ca/Special/ShellShoc ... 19&Index=1 (note, you need an old CPU to put in the Taichi to upgrade the bios to support the new one, amd can send you a loaner)

what are your thoughts on ROG Strix x570-e board?
it's probably the next best thing for me price and feature wise, but im not too sure of the quality.
about $50 more to jump to something like MEG ACE

I've become much more careful in my motherboard recommendations.

I don't know enough to recommend this board.
