So I managed to get my hands on Ryzen 5900X and now looking for some motherboard to go with it? I would have 2 M2 Samsung SSD 980 Pro Gen 4 connected so I would need newer MBO, there's no specific budget, but don't want something too expensive also. My GPU is Asus TUF 3080 Ti and PSU is RM850x, so need something to go with it and make sure that everything is working perfectly at 100%. Thank you.

I just bought a 5900X and went with the Asus Crosshair VIII Dark Hero. I bought it on the Asus website for $450. I also bought the same M.2's and this board will run them both at PCIe 4.0 speed. There are only two of them though. It also has heat sinks mounted above the M.2 ports with a strip of paste applied to the underside of the heat sinks for heat transfer. If you go with the Hero make sure you get the Dark Hero as it is the newer version and has upgraded power stages. 90 amp vs 60 amp on the Hero. This board is Ryzen 5000 series compatible and will boot without a bios update but you should update to the newest version anyways.

VRM's more than capable of driving a 5900X.

The OP was looking for a motherboard recommendation and hasn't chimed in since the original post in November. hzqk1 has issues with his board (the one I recommended). 2 different questions which is why I recommended he start a new post.
