I'd say TUF X570-PLUS as it can run a 3950X with absolutely no issue, or a Strix X570-F (or X570-E if you find it for a similar price) for the extra bells and whistles, which include better onboard audio. Both are from Asus.

Avoid MSI's entry to mid level X570 boards as they are very lackluster in terms of VRMs (even worse than some B450 boards in some cases).

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I'd suggest the Gigabyte Aorus Master.  Mainly because I own one and its be fantastic.  Great VRMs, tons of i/o, looks great, haven't really messed with the sound all that much yet but my headphones sound great through it haha.  

 

I also like the Gigabyte options because they seemed to be most of the youtuber's favorites around launch, so there are tons of videos and information out there about the X570 platform that uses Gigabyte boards specifically and reference their features.  May or may not be necessary for you, but as someone who is still getting familiar with a lot of the lingo used in the different manufacturer's BIOS settings, its nice when a guide has the specific BIOS I'm using.  For example, Buildzoide just did a great video on maximizing 3000 series CPU's using the Aorus BIOS. 

 

Check out the motherboard tier list as well, then you can narrow it down from there.
