I'm planing on buying a 3700x bases system and the two motherboards im planning on getting are Gigabyte X570 Aorus  or the Gigabyte B550 AORUS Pro AX. Im not sure which one has a better vrm can someone please tell me.

if youre not overclocking, basically every 500 series board available can handle a 3700x stock. most boards outside of the very, very bottom of the barrel budget boards can handle overclocking it without any issues. b550s and x570s are generally a bit over engineered overall 


topics i need help on:

my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Storage Drive: XPG SX8200 Pro 2tb

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

doesnt tell me much, if you get a golden chip you could possibly do that on a lesser board. the voltage and power requirements are what pertains to the vrm quality mattering. the aorus boards should be fine, the b550 is the best bang for your buck unless youre weird like me or a professional with multiple pcie 4.0 drives and a multi gpu system. the b550 pro has 10 or 12 50A phases of good quality which should be more than enough for any ryzen cpu.
