asdkj1740 new b450 form gigabyte, seems to be an atx upgrade over b450m gaming.
supprisingly there are 2 addressable rgb headers, and using alc892, but still realtek lan.
lots of usb headers on back i/o, six sata headers old man like these.
just one internal headers of usb 2.0, so pick one out of case front i/o usb 2.0 or some aio with usb cable or some argb/rgb stuff with usb cable etc.

a cheap version of b450 aorus pro and aorus elite, if vrm and gigabyte are all you need.

3800 with 1900FCLK gives best performance instead. But not all motherboards and cpu:s can handle the 1900FCLK. There are cases when even 1800FCLK wasn't stable for some rare cases but most should be able to do 1800FCLK to match the 3600Mhz MEM speed.
That is unless you run 4xDR memory for 64GB etc which can limit your max clock to some extent. Seen people struggle with that to some extent.
Well not really.
We have seen systems at 3733 with lower subtimings performing much better than other systems at 3800.

Where does it place in the Aorus X570 lineup, VRM+cooling combined?

Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite = 92.1°C
Asrock B450 Steel Legend = 96.0°C

Ryzen 9 3900X VRM temps with Corsair H150i AIO @ 1200RPM:
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max = 94.2°C
Asrock B450 Steel Legend = 98.8°C
Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite = 110.2°C

Surprising result to be honest , may have to do with measuring at front of the board (Tomahawk should be cooler than the TUF based on older testing)

edit: a refresher on the topology of the TUF Pro , it's Onsemi 4C10N x8 + 4C06N x8 (4 PWM phase) https://ru.gecid.com/mboard/asus_tuf..._gaming/?s=all
Pretty much how I've seen things play out on my AM3+ Asus vs MSI boards - poor airflow over the vrm, Asus shows an advantage - given equal ( ram cooler attached to cpu vrm heatsink) airflow - I've even seen an MSI 970 gaming run cooler than my CHV-Z.
