Really there's only ATX and ITX and nothing really in between.


The Asus Crosshair impact might be worth looking into since it's mini-DTX sized (ITX but slightly larger).

err... DTX but no 2nd slot? plus no 4x DIMM slots? why did they even bother?

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

The Mini-DTX was used to fit the audio section and dual M.2 slots on ROG SO-DIMM.2 module

So I'll wait until launch of ryzen 3000/x570 and see.
Actually I've already sold my 2600x for 150€ and RMA my MSI x470 Gaming Pro Carbon and get money back (170€), just got a secondary PC to go for those 2 weeks of wait.
Another thing about x570 is that I've got DDR4 4000 (B-Die) so x570 is better to reach those speeds.

I think I'll go for the 3700x + x570 if prices are good, I expect about 450-500€ on CPU + MB.

Thanks!

Well, I've found a Asus Crosshair VII Wifi refurbished (as new, from amazon) for 230€, as I have 1 month to decide if return it I'll check it and wait for reviews so to keep it, buy a new Asrock x470 taichi or buy a x570 mobo.

I'll keep you informed guys

Prices

https://www.techpowerup.com/256443/a...a-horror-story

These info might not be accurate.

Cheapest Taichi x470 i saw is 200$.
If you not have a need for PCIe 4.0, why go for X570? You'll pay a premium for a useless feature.
I chose the ASUS Tuf X470 Plus Gaming for my 2600X. It has a reasonable set of features, can do modest overclocking, has all ASUS 'goodies' and doesn't cost a bundle. And about the processor, looking at the price /performance, the 2600X is the better choice. Performance gain with a 2700X is hardly noticeable.

This way, I will not throw away money and instead can spend it on quicker replacement :-)

I'm in the same boat. The Elite (If it's really only $199) is in my price range. $200 (before tax) is really all the money that i have to spend on a motherboard. I'm waiting on reviews and real motherboard pricing before doing anything. I really want to find out the difference between the 3700x and 3800x to see if the 3800x is worth the extra money. I'm leaning towards the 3800x though in hopes that it will allow higher memory overclocks since it will be a binned 3700x. If there isn't much difference between them i could go with the 3700x and get the x570 Aorus Pro or some other $250 motherboard.

I really like the blue, black and grey look of the x570 Extreme 4. It's a shame that it doesn't seem to be that great. I'm sure it would be able to handle a 8core overclock though. I'm kind of leaning towards that board if it's under $200.

I'm really just waiting though to pick the best board in my price range.

The smart decision is to wait 3 months (1 fiscal quarter). All major bugs should be ironed out and any sales will likely happen around Black Friday / year end to please investors (they're public companies).

It will be 230-250$ range without tax.

Steel legend is 30$ cheaper.

It's pretty crazy how prices are, I will be using my Taichi untill the 16 core comes along
Then we will see how well it holds on the motherboard.. should be fine
