    You can get the Asrock x570 for a good deal man...it probably even has a little better VRM man...the Bs and x470 is a little lightttt for a 6 core but who cares...max out LLC...it does..runs better in mode 8 highest. I don't like that either man...having to max out LLC on a 6...feels like the 8 is wayyy out of the question...

    You should really learn to form coherent sentences.

    Either way, you're full of shit. All of the X470 boards that exist have VRM's sufficient for 6 core Ryzen 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Generation overclocking. Even most B450 boards are okay for 8 Core Ryzen overclocking, requiring some airflow over the VRM to stabilize temps.
    When I say "some airflow" I'm talking in the 10-20 CFM range AT MOST.

    Wich have crap coolers, that obstruct most of the airflow, no surface area. Its just a bad design.
    Especially on the X570 Steel Legend. And you know what? I owned the X570 Steel Legend for a week or so. Its not a particularly good board!

    decent B450 Boards are more than fine. We're talking about a couple of hundred of Amps with them anyway.
    Just don't get the 50€ things, look at the 120€ ones.
    And the 400 Series you don't get a noisy fan. nut such a small 40mm radial fan at 2000rpm in silent or 4000rpm or more.
    Most people here probably don't remember the annoying Radeon HD3850, 4850 or G-Force 8800GT...

    That said, for a 6 core, that's total overkill.
    OC with Ryzen 3600 and up doesn't work too well at the moment anyway...


    I don't really see a point of X570 besides PCIe 4.0 right now...
    Especially at the price point. For at least 25€ less maybe. at 50€ less I'd recommend them more easily.
    Butlook at the X570 Steel Legend!
    That's more like a 120-140€ Board. Not a 210€ one.

    I'm fairly coherent...and no it's not...just not really the undervolter one...a little...bad with droop...it will work...but like max LLC and will keep it around 1.41-1.42v...it does getting hitchy around 1.38v...Yeah would still run the 8 no question...but we are "floating" more. And I never did like that to overshoot to try to fix that stuff. I do want to add at least another 1000uf.

    It's besides that you have pci 4.0 potential...they just unlocked the bandwidth GODD with it....gonna try like 800mb/s.

    None of that is down to chipset, and completely down to the VRM design. All of the budget 8+2 VRM designs AsRock uses on their X570 boards are beaten in terms of electrical performance by existing X470 boards and even some B450 boards.

    PCI-e 4.0 has no real world benefit for most users. Unless you're doing large (100GB) file transfers a lot, like a video editor. Even then, there are many PCI-e 3.0 SSDs that have better 4K Random LQD read/write results than the limited PCI-e 4.0 SSDs on the market right now.

    Get the x470 then...it's fine..flashed up newest one and everything...but again feel like you don't need 3000 yet. Unless maybe I end up killing it. You are not lyingggg it is fine and godlyyyy with Vega still.
