Hello, I bought a new PC in december and since that day I had an issue with my PC that freezes.
I've tried pretty much everything(really, everything) and I think that the only think I can still think of is that the motherboard is faulty(Asrock Phantom Gaming 4).

I don't think I can return it by now, I do have warranty, but the issue for me is that I don't have a replacement motherboard for now, and I cannot afford "losing" my PC for who knows how long until it will be fixed. Therefore I think I'll get a new motherboard, and meanwhile try to send to repairs the current one, then maybe sell it or try to return it if possible by then.

So I think I'll start looking at new motherboard meanwhile. Here are my PC specs:
Ryzen 7 2700x
Corsair LPX 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz C16 DDR4 DRAM Memory Kit, Black (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16)

My current motherboard doesn't seem to have this memory in the QVL, and I was only able to push it up to 2667 mhz. If possible trying to get a motherboard that will support this RAM slots, it would be very very good.

I need 8 SATA ports at least(not more, but at least)
I don't think I have other requirements, a USB C port would be nice, not mandatory.

Thanks a lot for the help!

This may be a bit of a simpleton answer, but since you're probably used to the way the AsRock brand works, maybe the X570 Pro 4? It has the 8 SATA onboard and the USB-C on the rear. $153.99 on Newegg right now: https://www.newegg.com/asrock-x570-pro4/p/N82E16813157886?&quicklink=true

Otherwise, these are the filters applied with your requirements, which include X470 and X570 results: https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007625 601292786 601311650 601318817 601334781 600054097 601333582 601334151&Order=PRICE

Good luck!

Not really sure what there is to be "used" in motherboards, but I don't really care, as long as it will work for me.

I've had a really rough past month in terms on the PC, freezes every few hours, sometimes even when doing cruicial stuff and losing important data as well. I'm at a point where I'm so frustrated and lost that I just want to get something that will work.

What about the RAM support? It's probably not in the QVL as well, do you think it will run at 3200?

Thats a good option, to be fair, X470's are at decent pricing but still don't offer the same level of memory compatibility as the X570s.

According to PCPartPicker, your memory is compatible with the Pro4. It should easily run at 3200Mhz. If for some reason it doesn't (which, if I'm not too much mistaken, most seem to default to around 2666Mhz in the first place), a manual BIOS setting in the memory section should make it recognize, and run at, its rated speed. I had to do that with my 3000Mhz memory in my B450 Tomahawk when I first set it up, but it was no problem at all to do. Just selected the speed I wanted it run at (because it did have the default set at 2666Mhz before I loaded Win10), and it'll run at that speed from then on out.

Also, looking at the same list with the X470 only checkmarked and comparing it against the same Newegg filter listing, the MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon would also fit your bill, as it also shows compatibility with your memory.

And, I didn't mean you "use" the motherboard, I just meant that you might be adapted to how the BIOS looks on the AsRock boards. That's what I meant. :)
