    This would be the other option although a little more expensive. https://www.amazon.com.au/ASUS-TUF-X570-Plus-Motherboard-Lig...

      Was a few complains about bios being weird and the poor placement of the chipset fan behind the GPU but otherwise solid. It was a bit cheaper just last week, around the $290-$300 mark OzBargain Deal Camel Link

      I actually have both of these (bought the Tuf when it was $298). If you plan to use the stock cpu cooler be aware the gigabyte has a really dumb fan controller that revs the fan up and down constantly (as the thermals spike for fractions of a second) unless you micro manage the fan curve. My GB mobo has a lot of whine too.

      Of the 2 (ignoring other variables) I had less issues with the Asus and found it simpler to get to it's final state. The gigabyte does have a more practical antenna though.

    No rear panel USB c? My 3 year old x370 board had one.

      How hard could it be to have one type c port on a $300+ motherboard? Unless they're deliberately leaving it out to make you buy one of the more expensive boards.

        My point exactly.

    Pay a tad more and get the Aorus Ultra… has usb-c front header as well.

    •  

      But what's the benefit of usb c at the moment? The only thing with it is my phone. That won't go fast anyway.. Slow memory inside.

      If my 16tb Seagate on order doesn't use it, I can't think why I'd care. We could say future proofing.. But I've had a usb c phone for years now and still nothing else.

      10 usb on the back seems good.

        There's plenty of point, I have multiple USB-C devices and not having USB-C on the front and back of my case is not an option. You may only have one, but plenty of other people have more.

          What do you have? Serious Q. Deciding if I'll need it later.

            @justtoreply: Monitors, three mobile phones in the house that are USB-C, headsets/headphones, I have a small network switch that is USB-C powered as well. I'm sure there is more. We have 4 laptops in the house that can call be charged via USB-C (two people with personal and work laptops). I'd far rather have a USB C than multiple charging blocks lying around.

      This one does have a usb-c front header. Ultra does have a back usb-c but if thats your only reason to upgrade thats $140 just for that

      The $140 does get you a rear USB-C port, 1x additional NVME, Realtek 2. 5GbE LAN and AX instead of AC Wifi. All useless for me and i'd say most others as well. At just under $500 I would step up to a ROG board.

      Aorus Pro Wifi is fine, dont need Ultra.

      •  

        You are correct, I got ultra and pro wifi mixed up.. pro wifi is most definitely sufficient!

    This may be a dumb question but here goes: what is the point and advantage of having a USB-C port on the back of the motherboard or on the front of the case? With the USB-A (gen 2, gen3) is a must have of course, but with a USB-C? Dunno really.
