    Look for a X570 motherboard which has a ball bearing fan and software control which turns off the the fan under low load. I avoid any motherboard suppliers which give a poor warranty e.g. MSI who only offer a 1 year warranty.

    I've done a recent review of X570 boards for a new PC build in a few months time. My selection criteria are:
    • Quiet chipset fan
    • 3 year warranty
    • Front panel USB header
    • Dual BIOS preferred
    • On board LED diagnostic preferred
    • WiFi
    • Good sound e.g. ALC1220
    • Good power control
    • Intel Ethernet preferred
    • Price under 250
    • Low poor ratings on Amazon (1* + 2*)


    My current shortlist based on the above is:
    • GigaByte X570 Aorus Ultra
    • Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus (WI-FI)

    Of course if you do not want WifI adapter built in & a 3rd m.2 slot you could just get the Aorus Elite X570 as it is at a good price in Uk in fact lower than I got myne for back in Jan 2020.

    As for not having LED Post lights just buy a speaker to plug into the power switch board as this would give you alot more info on boot problems with the beeps & the fan stops when not under load in fact most of the components for all those Aorus range have the same chips with just a few extra features & I think the Ultra looks ugly when compared to the Elite & thats not a bias opinion because I have one, lol.

    The good factors about the Elite & Ultra is the heatsink is not a silly long one connected to the chipset which is more like a sales tactic than about cooling to me.

    Thank you all, once again. Just wanted to provide an update, I narrowed down the scope and as per your advice, I am going for an X570 one.

    B550 ones (like the one I linked) are great too, but X570 is better because of PCI-e 4.0 ie. more future-proof for me.

    Which one? Also, which CPU since prices are high at the moment?

    Haven't yet decided specifically but the one in the post is very much my top choice so far, also the one you recommended ( GigaByte X570 Aorus Ultra ) :)


    My CPU choice would be AMD Ryzen 7 5800X . Prices are sadly high but it seems they are starting to go down, at least in my country, probably not a lot of people wanting to buy high-end AMD nowadays
