X570 motherboard under 300 quid

Hello,
I finally made the update from my sig system to a ryzen 5 3600, 32gb 3000mhz ddr4, and a pretty fast 1tb corsair m2, which I absolutely love, coming from disk drives. The issue is: msi carbon b450 motherboard. Looks great, lots opf features, but after 4 days of tormenting with bios flashes and resets, I got to the point where the board posts only about 50% of the time. Great when it's up and running, if I get lucky enough.
So I called Scan.co.uk and they agreed to refund it, and now I'll need to get another motherboard, this time it has to be an x570 to keep me going and not run into compatibility issues. I am leaning towards Aorus Elite so far. I don;t care for wi-fi, rgb, or watercooling. I want stability, solid vrm for future overclock, and most of them all, connectivity: a plethora of usb's, a minimum of 6 s-ata, 1 or 2 m2 nvme, and connections to feed my 6 noctua fans. My budget is 300 quid, which I cannot go over, or I will suffer the wife-sequences.
Also, my knowledge of current motherboards is sketchy at best, with bit of info picked up here and there, with the general conclusion that I could use an Asus or Gigabyte mobo, no Asrock/Microstar; hence me posting this thread.

I had my 3600 fit into an x370 mobo ....... and after I while I also decided that it's time for a x570 ......

Here is a good roundup of the x570 mobos:

https://nl.hardware.info/artikel/941...-met-een-3900x

Open the site in chrome and then use google translate.

You can go either:
1. Elite - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aorus-X570-...3719745&sr=8-1

2. Pro - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Ao...3719745&sr=8-2

3. Ultra - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aorus-X570-...3719745&sr=8-3

What can I say, compare them and see if any would fit the bill ...... but ultra looks fantastic.

Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.

Having a good experience with the X470 version, so i recommend this.

and it looks like the pch fan is just below the gpu.

EDIT: i see those Gigas have really competitive prices. I say consider them first.
