Asus ROG STRIX B450-I vs X470-I

Besides the chipset being different, and the major things being PCI-E lanes between the two, but these having only 1 pci-e port, is there ANY difference between these two boards?

I believe X470 boards (and 370) overclock better than the B series boards, correct me if I'm wrong

Well I'd be pairing it with a 2700x, these things don't need to be OC, they do it on their own with PB.

Nothing needs to be OCed, but people do it anyways. To each their own. If you don't want to OC then I'd recommend a B450 board cause it's likely cheaper

I built around th B450 board. The only real difference I could find was a few in depth OC features and the RGB SSD cover. 

 

At the time, the 470 wasn't out, but even after looking, I wouldn't have purchased it. The 450 is more than enough for an itx build

I know it's a month later, sorry for the bump... I was looking at the b450-i and x470-i, and besides the $50 premium the only other difference according to the asus website the only difference seems to be that the b450 comes with only two sata cables, vs 4 in the x470... they both have the same amount of ports, same pcie/m.2 bandwidth, same audio amp, same IO (iirc b450 chipset is supposed to have less usb and less pcie...).

Looking at pictures side by side, I'd say it's the same damn board, same chokes, same vrm, maybe the x470 has a little cleaner aesthetics tho that can just be the different lighting conditions (I'm looking at the pcpartpicker item images), only obvious diffrence is the b450 has a white and black wifi cable, vs red and black on the x470, and I hate red...

Ya I know, who cares about sata cables? B450 comes with less SATA ports and PCIE lanes, but thats only relevant for mATX and above, it doesn't effect ITX at all. So guess I'll take the $50....OH WAIT! the ROG eye logo is RGB on the x470. So I guess the question, is an RGB logo worth $50?

Hi there

 

I am choosing between these boards at the moment but I am not tech savvy enough to know the advantages/disadvantages of having 2 PCIe lanes over 1.

I’ve been reading about bifurcation and such but am totally lost.

The build will consist of:

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Gen3 6 Core

Asus - ROG STRIX X470-I GAMING Mini ITX AM4

Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600

500GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus, M.2

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GAMING OC

Silverstone - RVZ03 Mini ITX

Corsair - SF 600W 80+ Platinum Fully Modular SFX

Is having a single PCIe lane something I should care about?

 

Thanks :-)
