Hi,
I have hard time deciding with which motherboard I should go.
High End X470 (Taichi/Asus/MSI/Gigabyte) or with mid-range X570 ... (MSI / Gigabyte only)

What are my needs:
  • good vrm to handle up to 16 cores (3900x/3950x to be used)
  • DDR4 overclocking capabilities (I have samsung b-dies (3733mhz expected @ 2x8GB ) and Micron dual rank E-dies (3600 expected @ 2x16GB)) - is it possible to go that far with x470?
  • wifi (I need Bluetooth) - I can go with PCI card instead (is it good idea? I don't like the usb cards due to bad range)
  • I skipped x570 from ASUS/Asrock due to chipset fan location
  • can we modify uclk/fclk on X470/B450?
I had MSI tomahwak b450 and I liked it too but it was not with wifi (also VRM is smaller than on others.

I like X570 Aorus PRO WIFI but it seems to be not available at all.
I could go with X570 MSI ACE or X570 Master but it feels bad to paid twice much for things which I will not use.

Please help me!

Thank you,
