Guys, help me with this: I just starded putting a new build together for an 5600X when it comes out, for playing @ 4k 60 on a LG C9 55` and im hunting for a motherboard.

I already have:
1 Gen 4 SSD 500gb for boot and 1 game at a time.
3080 Strix
16gb (2x 8gb) Adata 3600Mhz CL14
Cooler Master TD500 Mesh

Not using HDDs or raid 0. Not using any kind of PCI expansion card, its only the 3080.

Planning to run the 5600 overclocked with a 360 AIO.

No need for front panel Type C 10gig, the case only have USB 3.

These are my MB options here on my reach.

B550 - Aorus Pro AC 290USD
B550 - MSI Tomahawk 299 USD
X570 - MSI MPG Gaming Edge Wifi 280USD
X570 - Asrock Steel Legend 280 USD
X570 - MPG Gaming Plus 200 USD

I know, I know, the prices are insane, amost double what they go by in the US, but we are in deep sht here and it is what it is...

Was leaning towards the B550 Aorus Pro for the top of the line VRM heatsink, 6 layer PCB for oc the memory to 4.000 Mhz to pair with the 2000 Mhz infinity fabric and the fanless chipset. What should I pick? Is the X570 THAT MUCH better? Am I losing something getting an inferior chipset?
