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.

Technology is NOT a liberator . Whom technology serves is a class question.
Technology wielded by the capitalist class benefits only the exploiters.
Technology wielded by the working class will serve ALL Humanity.

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.
