X570 motherboard for 3900X

I'm upgrading to a 3900X and need help picking a decent X570 motherboard to go with it.

Currently I'm able to get 20% off Asus boards, which makes them competitive.
Narrowed it down to a few:

Asus Prime X570-Pro - Price after discount: 294$
MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon Wifi - 315$
Asus ROG Strix X570-E - Price after discount: 365$
Aorus X570 Ultra - 396$
ASRock X570 Taichi - 412$
MSI MEG X570 Ace - 525$ (Added this just because, it looks like a beast)

I'd like to get wifi and bluetooth built-in, which the Prime doesn't have. But it's currently cheaper than the rest.
The MSI MPG board has a 4 layer PCB, but I have no idea if that really matters for my use. I'm getting 4x 3600Mhz CL 16 ram and probably won't overclock it past that. I need a board that supports 4 sticks . A minimum of 2 m.2 slots is a requirement. I'm using a 1TB SSD as my only storage and looking at expanding with a PCI4 device.

The ASRock X570 Taichi looks really nice, but there are reports on reddit about the chipset overheating. Not sure if that's a widespread issue.

MSI MEG is probably the most expensive I'd be willing to buy... if it's beneficial to go that high.

I want the 3900X to be able to run it's max autoboost potential, but I'm not getting into heavy overclocking with custom loops or LN2 for that matter. I just want something of good quality that'll do the CPU justice.

The offerings from Gigabyte are very nice and I would strongly look at one of them. Also Gigabyte has come a long way with their boards and bioses.

I have the MSI X570 MEG Ace. Exceptionally good vrm construction, exceptionally good shielding of the memory traces. They are completely buried in the pcb material. This is a heavy duty 6 layer PCB board. I am completely happy with it.

Very happy with MSI X570 Godlike here, I'm sure the MEG ACE would do good too.

I was also looking at the ASRock X570 Taichi, had bought the ROG Strix X470-F for the 3900x, but thinking that the X570 board will have longer legs. The other alternative that I was also considering was the Aorus X570 Ultra.
