B550 ITX Advice - Aorus Pro AX/Asus Strix?

I've been reading up on 2 motherboards, the ASUS B550I Strix and the Gigabyte B550I Aorus Pro AX.

 

Most of the reviews of the Aorus are glowing however, I've seen many user feedback saying otherwise.

 

Complaints about Bluetooth and WIFI issues and some boards dying days later after installation.

 

The Aorus is the cheapest and strongest by £50, so debating on which to opt for?

Are you into memory overclock?

I seem to recall buildzoid recommending the Gigabyte board.

I won't be pushing it too far as it'll be housed in a NR200P.

That's good to hear, only thing putting me of at this moment is some issues being reported by user feedback. I probably won't be using these features as I mostly prefer the cable route for all my needs however I may do one day.

 

Anyone know if it supports Ryzen 5000 out of the box as I'm looking to place an order sometime today?

I've placed the order the Gigabyte and should be here tomorrow however I won't be taking delivery of the NR200P until the 12th October as stock is hard to find here in the UK.

damn, I only switched to the nr200 (non-p) a few weeks ago, that was only about £70 on amazon with prime, seems the nr200p is a bit harder to get

I picked it up from another etailer for £79.82 on Friday however delivery states by the 12th of October. Looking forward to downsizing as I've always had a keen interest in SFF.

Yea it was a really fun challenge, much more satisfying than atx, however I did cut one of my fan wires in half thinking it was a ziptie

Recently cut off the LED cable on a 4000D as it was all bunched together neatly and I over did the ziptie.
