Acertified I started with an IBM XT machine and DOS back in the 80's. Things are very different now days with the high demand of software and especially games which are pushing the hardware requirements. My First AMD CPU was a 486 Processor that was 120MHz if I remember correctly. LOL

Well, some are still used to Pre Ryzen times and Intel's slow development 😉.

I would make a short list of features that you want and look for the cheapest board with those features.
FYI... Stay AWAY from MSI at the moment. I love MSI but their x570 boards have the WORST VRM's at the moment.
I am very impressed with the Gigabyte Aorus x570 stuff. This is the first time I passed up Asus in over a decade. I currently have Asus in the x370 and B450.

Does the 4 stick issues still apply if you're only running the RAM at stock speeds? does the capacity/size of the sticks matter? 8GB, 16GB each stick make any difference?

Also, could you maybe PM some links to other forums I can read about this at, or just read about this MB in general at depth with the 3000 series CPUs?
I have only 4x16 GB. "Stock" Speed would be 3400 MHz for mine, and while I could use at release of 3900X CPU the XAMP just fine, it wont boot at all anymore with just XAMP (its a huge fiddeling with the Subsettings). Quickly setted 3200 MHz (just the major timings and nothing else) also displayed the Issue, that after Standby, Prime95 wouldnt even last 1 Minute (even Chrome Tabs did crash all the time then). Also 3200 MHz displayed occasionally Bootloops then.
The irony is: I get 3800 MHz rock Stable (5 Hours Prime 95 using 60 GB RAM), but it booting is pure luck and after Standby --> Instable. Pretty sure a X470 will behave better + I personally think, Asus wont be putting too much time into fixing these issues (even more so, as 64GB Setups are still rare).

I would say, wait till Black Friday and get yourself a nice X470 Board (they are also better supported and they learned from early mistakes they made with X370) or even a Mid Range X570 (they have much better Equipment, unless you need a ton of USB - special 2-3 m.2 Slots are not too uncommon on mid priced X570)

Acertified FYI... I have Crosshair VI EXTREME Motherboard for sale if anyone is interested. Works Great! Very well taken care of. Original Box, Manuals and etc. BIOS version is 7501.
Located in Colorado and will ship.
Thanks

Acertified This is a statement from AMD...

The exact quote comes from Robert Hallock, one of the Ryzen product managers at AMD.

"Pre-X570 boards will not support PCIe Gen 4. There's no guarantee that older motherboards can reliably run the more stringent signaling requirements of Gen4, and we simply cannot have a mix of "yes, no, maybe" in the market for all the older motherboards. The potential for confusion is too high. When final BIOSes are released for 3rd Gen Ryzen (AGESA 1000+), Gen4 will not be an option anymore. We wish we could've enabled this backwards, but the risk is too great."
