X570 aorus pro or taichi

I am looking at getting a 3700x and am looking at motherboards. Currently I can get the taichi and aorus pro for the same price when adding in combo deals and rebates. Which is the better board?

They're very similar so it really depends on what you're after. The Taichi has more features though as the board it is based on (Phantom Gaming X only adds 2.5G LAN) aims for a higher price bracket (Aorus Master/MSI Ace/CH VIII Hero).



Main differences:
Power delivery - Taichi has 12K hour Japanese capacitors but uses cheaper (price-wise) Vishay 50A powerstages instead of 40A IR3553 powerstages from International Recitifier
Cooling: Aorus Pro has better VRM cooling due to finned main heatsink, but the cooling in practice is similar (see https://nl.hardware.info/artikel/941...-met-een-3900x) due to the lower 4x6mm footprint of the IR3553 ; Aorus Pro has fan stop options for chipset heatsink, Aorus Pro has 2 EC temp headers with thermal probes
Memory topology - Taichi reportedly is T-topology, but Aorus Pro is daisy chain which is better for 2 DIMM situations
Debug features: Taichi has debug code LED, clear CMOS button, power/reset ; Aorus Pro has dual BIOS + debug LEDs for CPU/VGA/RAM
Storage: Taichi has 3xM.2
Connectivity & Rear IO Ports: Taichi has PS/2 , Aorus Pro has more USB 2.0 ports
Audio: the Aorus Pro has WIMA capacitors and ALC1220-VB instead of ALC1220 but the Taichi has a Texas Instruments amp ... in practice per Techpowerup's RMAA audio results the Taichi is a bit better

Fluff: Taichi has an aesthetic backplate (it isn't thermal) and provides an SLI bridge


Other notes: Taichi's USB 3.1 gen 2 front panel header has poor placement when accounting for full size GPUs. This is noted in Tweaktown's review and some people on reddit stated Asrock is offering right angle cables as consolation.

Another thing to note if you care is Taichi has 8 SATA ports where the Aorus Pro only has 6

The pro wifi may be better for me then. Although I do like the extra sata on the taichi.

There is lots of stuff in that build that can be done better and/or cheaper

Unless you feel like replacing the front 200mm fan you should buy the tempered glass version of the Pro or the Luxe instead as they have 140mm fan(s) in the front
I have the that case myself and the front 200mm fans sucks more butt than air its completely useless as an intake fan as it has zero static pressure

This RAM kit is better and cheaper than the one you picked
https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-...-649-_-Product

The SSD you picked is overpriced and there are options almost as good and much cheaper such as the PNY CS3030 aka XLR8 or the Corsair Force MP510 just to name two drives that uses the Toshiba E12 controller, the MP510 is so cheap that you can buy doube the size for only $10 over the 970 Evo
https://www.newegg.com/pny-xlr8-cs30...-064-_-Product
https://www.newegg.com/corsair-force...-476-_-Product

There is a thread about the drives using the Toshiba E12 controller
https://www.overclock.net/forum/355-...2-toshiba.html

By the way if you are looking at an NVME SSD for gaming and nothing else dont bother as NVME will only bring the loading times down by a single second

Look at AlphaCool. This is an AIO that can be customized by adding an extra cooler for graphics. The company also had custom cooling solutions.

I don't know what others say but i have regrets buying the X570 Aorus Pro.
I had RMA mine 2 times and in the 3nd one i don't dare to update bios. Read the aorus thread, we are it seems the beta testers for gigabyte.
As for Asrock i don't have knowledge but i suppose there is a thread for it in the forum.

Read extensively both threads and decide for yourself.
