Anyone have any input on whether to run the Master, Ultra, or Pro (most likely a 3900X on it)? I'm trying to talk myself into the cheaper boards to shave a few $$$ off but I don't want to end up with a board that won't be optimal for the 3900X or........potentially......whatever might come in the next gen(s) that will fit in an X570. Of course I'm also trying to talk myself INTO the Extreme so I don't have to deal with a chipset fan, but yeah that's probably not gonna happen. I'm also not a huge fan of the look of the fan on the Pro. My understanding is the Ultra and Pro have the same VRM?

Xtreme fanless and almost everything is a heatsink on the board
Master has thermally conductive backplate
Fins-Array VRM Heatsink on all models except Elite and Gaming X
Audio spec wise $140 Sound BlasterX AE-5 with ESS SABER32 122dB SNR and WIMA caps $140, newer Sound Blaster AE-7 uses ESS 9018 SABRE DAC w/ WIMA caps $170
On paper the Aorus Exteme and Master has some very nice audio features. Can't wait to test.
