STRIX X570 Dark Hero or STRIX X570 Formula is the absolute best you can buy pretty much. Formula is out of budget and finding an X570 Dark is hard these days (for a reasonable price at least). If you can't get either, then I'd recommend the normal STRIX X570 Hero

If you can get the dark hero 3 it’s an X570 board the is loaded with features, and I think it is around 400

Don’t take everything I say seriously 

take it with a grain of s a l t

You probably don’t need to spend $500 on a motherboard unless you want to do very extreme over clocking. Something like the x-570 tuf gameing pro will handle a 5900x fine.

My system: Core I7 10700k, 32 gb Trident Z RGB ram@3200mhz, EVGA GTX 970 SSC (will upgrade), NZXT N7 Z490 motherboard (Black, Samsung 980 1TB SSD, NZXT C850 PSU, Hyper 212 EVO RGB cooler, Corsair 4000D airflow case.

Yeah but you want future proofing so that Asus dark hero III is a great option and not needing the upgrade for a long time

How is the Dark Hero any more future proof ?

It has 3 m.2s 8 satas, has super robust power delivery, can support pretty much all ryzen CPUs and future ones, and it has really good reviews on pcmag and some other reviews

And the asus dark hero viii has WiFi six and 2.5gb networking and for 400 dollars, it’s a bargain for that price compared to other X570 flagships

What future Ryzen? Zen 4 will be socket am5.

We don’t know that for sure that’s just an assumption

The majority of people won't need 3 x M.2 slots. As for SATA then it depends on how many the op needs. Unless he plans on lots of SATA SSD's or HDD's then he won't need a lot anyway. An MSI X570 Tomahawk has a solid VRM for half the price. This is the last cpu's on this platform so not sure what future ones you mean.

The X570 Tomahawk also has wifi 6 and 2.5GB LAN.

Yes but there certainly won’t be too many more am4 chips.

Yeah well when you have a 500 dollar budget for a motherboard, you want to make the most of it for the future

What future ? If the op wants to spend $400+ on the Dark Hero then it is his choice, but he can easily save half the money if he wants to without sacrificing performance. He would be better off getting a bigger SSD as 750GB is a bit small for a $2000 build.

Ok fine it’s his choice but if I were him I would go with the better option

Ok so heres a few extra notes...

- I also have a 5TB HDD for games

- I'm planning on using the larger m.2 drive for my OS and the smaller one as a cache for the game HDD

- I don't really care about wifi capability since I use ethernet

- I will spend extra money if it's worth it, but the Dark hero is only available for like $850 so that's a bit out of the question

Anyways, these are the 2 that I'm considering at the moment

Thoughts?

Yeah the crosshair hero is pretty much a motherboard that will also last for a long time

The Gigabyte B550 Aorus Master has a better VRM and even that costs way less at $268. There is not much reason to spend $400+ on a board if you can get the same thing for less. Anyway the Dark Hero is out of the question if it is $850.

You could spend less on a B550 board. An MSI B550 Tomahawk or Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro etc would be more than fine for that cpu. Both are sub $180.
