Great x570 board for Ryzen 5000

ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PRO (WiFi 6) AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gb LAN, BIOS Flashback, HDMI, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header and Aura Sync)
ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PRO (WiFi 6) AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gb LAN, BIOS Flashback, HDMI, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header and Aura Sync)

Pros: -supported 5900x with no bios update needed -better memory support than most x570 boards including higher end boards -released Q4 2020, many updates on this board compared to older models -great price for the feature set

Cons: -none, since the board is newer most people are glossing over this as a choice

Overall Review: Did a lot of research on x570 MB and this came out as a great choice. Has a newer memory topology which supports very high DD4 speeds, and since it was released recently it has a lot of QOL updates compared to older model boards. Feature set is similar to a Tomahawk but its cheaper, and has newer tech, easy choice.

Excellent Performance, best of 2020

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - Ryzen 9 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 12-Core 3.7 GHz Socket AM4 105W Desktop Processor - 100-100000061WOF
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - Ryzen 9 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 12-Core 3.7 GHz Socket AM4 105W Desktop Processor - 100-100000061WOF

Pros: -Great Multithreading performance -Great Gaming performance -Low Power Usage -Free performance gains with PBO2 undervolting

Cons: -very hard to find stock -flimsy packaging

Overall Review: Great processor all around, thermals are great even on air (NH D15-S w/ 2 fans), great gains with PBO2 and undervolting the cpu

Great Temps and Performance

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 08G-P5-3755-KR, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate

Pros: -Great temps on usage, at idle sits under 40C with fans completely off, gets around mid 60's on heavy usage -Great fps for most games -Plays Cyberpunk well with DLSS -no driver update needed if you have a current nvidia card, just plug and play

Overall Review: Amazing performance from this 3070, does very well on benchmarks and gaming has been great. Got away with ultra raytracing (with dlss on) in Cyberpunk at 4K 60 for certain scenes (looking around Japantown was lovely).

Phanteks Eclipse P500A High Airflow Full-metal Mesh Design, ATX Mid-tower, Digital-RGB Lighting, 140mm D-RGB Case Fans, Tempered Glass, Dual System Capable, White

Pros: -Amazing Airflow -Very clean look and quality feel -Hinge for side panel is extremely handy -Easy Cable Management -Front USB-C connector, connectors on front arranged vertically so wider devices dont interfere with each other -Phanteks case with screws all organized always makes the build easier

Cons: -hard to find in stock but what isn't lately -not completely white for people looking for that, has a decent amount of black in and around the case

Overall Review: Loved working with this case for my latest build. Lots of room to work in, airflow is amazing, and the build came out great. Recommend this to anyone looking for an airflow focused build.

Great Quality and Packaging

Pros: Fits pretty much any 140 mm fan Machined Aluminum and high quality feel Very nicely packaged Easy to integrate in a Phanteks case

Cons: A Phanteks RGB controller, conversion cable, or case with the functionality built in is needed

Overall Review: Great way to add a premium look with nice lighting to high quality fans (got them on black Noctua NF-A14's). Easily able to connect them to my P500A wiring, and works with Aura Sync using the MB connector included with the case (see cons if you arent using a Phanteks case). Great price from newegg on this as well, can be close to double on other sites.
