Original Coupon Deal

Since we have good deals on Ryzen, you might need a motherboard.

This motherboard has better fetures in this price range, and ok VRM design
should be able to handle 8 cores/12 cores Ryzen 3 stock easily,
no problem with a little bit of overclock for Ryzen 3 8 cores like 3700X.
I'd not use 2700X on this one, the VRM part will generate too much heat and the heatsink is too weak.

It is entry level specs X570, but should be good for most people.
There's PCIE 4.0 NVME coming soon, but it is a bit early.
If you don't need PCIE 4.0 or USB 3.2 Gen2( USB 3.1 Gen2), you
can get a better quality/feature X470/B450 instead.

Pros:
Intel Lan chip I211AT.
Real 8+2 phases (but weak) VRM design.
Debug/POST LED
ALC1200 audio chip.
Dual PCIE 4.0 X4 M2 (Some X570 entry ones only has 1 PICE 4.0 X4, 1 PCIE 3.0 X4)
2 USB 3.2 Gen2 (Rear Type-A), 10 USB 3.2 Gen1 (4 Front, 6 Rear)
8 SATA
Graphics Output Options: HDMI, DisplayPort
Support AMD Quad CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™, but no body really use Quad I guess, rarely give you
more fps compared to dual cards.
- 2 x RGB LED Headers*
- 1 x Addressable LED Header**
- 1 x Thunderbolt™ AIC Connector (5-pin) (Supports ASRock Thunderbolt™ 3 AIC Card R2.0 only)

Cons:
VRM part generates too much heat while handling Ryzen 3 12 cores or the older Ryzen 2 series. The VRM heatsink is not sufficient for that thermal.
No M2 heatsink/shield.
No BIOS flashback.

    If I change my mobo, I assume ram and CPU is all I need. But I can keep other parts?

    Do I need a new windows license?

    •  

      I guess you mean upgrading your existing system?
      Yes you just need to have Ryzen 2/3 cpu for this motherboard and DDR4 RAM.

      For license, I'm not sure, I use MX Linux.

    •  

      License can be transferred easily. No fuss

      •  

        Cool. Can I just plug my drive into the new system and will windows work?

          I did it recently enough, but it required something online where I choose the option "upgraded PC".
          Pretty sure I accessed it from the activate windows method.

          The license was linked to my Microsoft account.

          Pretty sure you can do 2 times a year or something, then you'll need to call them

          Turns out I did it the hard way.

          If you 'uninstall' your existing license from your current PC, you should simply be able to use it again on the new PC.

          Honestly though, I don't recall the method I used being much more difficult. Pretty sure transfer was an option when you click the "this computer is unlicensed" message.

          To uninstall your current, open cmd as admin and simply type slmgr /upk

    This or ASUS Prime X570-P?

    •  

      I'd probably go Asus and I dont like Asus and I would prefer Asrock as a brand.

      Be that as it may it seems like sub $300 x570 boards are a bit barebones for my liking but it seems $300 doesnt go very far these days.

    I would personally stay away from the PCIE 4 for a bit. Better off getting a higher end X470 board instead.
