Which cpu? If more than six cores the Asus has better VRM.

What is your budget? If you can stretch it a little i would go for a MSI x570 Tomahawk. Gives you a really good platform for future upgrades up to 16 cores no problem.

Asus x570 tuf has better VRM and in theory should be found at a lower price than Pro Carbon, but this is important only if you overclock. If not overclocking both will do. However (!) - I personally would go with Asus to make sure I can "safely" upgrade to Ryzen 4000 in autumn (because we don't know what kind of power requirements Ryzen 4000 will have - not too high, otherwise x570 wouldn't have been already quoted as compatible, but still). If you don't plan to upgrade to Ryzen 4000, and no OC, even if you go later 3800x-3950x, both boards will be ok for non-oc.

P.S. While Tomahawk x570 has a better fan placement than Asus x570 Tuf, the Tomahawk is not yet in stores (at least in US) and might appear in June. At that point b550 motherboards will be released as well on June 16.

Kinda a hard one if you never plan on going beyond 8 cores the pro carbon is a much nicer board but the Tuf has a substantially better vrm allowing you to drop a 16 core into it without worrying about it catching on fire.


And if ryzen 4000 power requirements go up the pro carbon is gonna have a bad day.....

Caring1, Asus' tuf boards on z or other chipsets are not good, but almost all Asus x570 boards have excellent VRMs, while their B450 boards are problematic. Here is a simple & good VRM comparison chart for the vast majority of AM4 boards:

I agree..... The fact that the Tuf outperforms the pro carbon by 20c while being a fairly budget x570 board says a lot about how msi cheaped out on their vrms under the unify and soon to release Tomahawk

Even the B450 Tomahawk max outperforms it.......

No reason to say you were wrong, you didn't know. It's actually good that we had a chance to exchange some useful info. I, for one (to my big surprise), never saw the chart from Techspot/HardwareUnboxed that oxrufiioxo attached above. Thanks guys and hope our OP got his answer and some useful info.

Be well everyone!

I wouldn't exactly say you were wrong as VRMs aren't the be all and end all of a good mobo if it were me I'd go with the Strix X570-E Gaming over the (S)Tuf(Fed) any day

NO DIRECT FLOW... Yea that's realistic. I'd add that a lot of the fancier boards have the stupid aesthetic cladding on them which makes them terribad in low airflow environments like a bench. Those fancily clad vrms need some kind active airflow.

The ALC S1220a onboard sound is a big step up in quality compared to previous gen Realtek onboard audio

Have Asus added chipset fan control in their x570 boards yet?
