    Get the X570 Gaming Edge Wifi. It has a really good VRM....honestly :D

    Ok joking aside, I would agree that a B550 board is all you need, so either the Gigabyte as mentioned, or any of the MSI B550 boards from the B550-A PRO upwards. They will all handle a 12 core with ease.

    The X570 Tomahawk is a nice board, but if you don't need wifi then save some cash.

    Did you manage the impossible and bag a GPU too?

    Or is that on indefinite hold?

    Well, I hope the Radeon RX 6800 XT will be available in January or February.
    If these don't come, I don't know what I will do - there are no other alternatives.

    Yeah, what should have been a nirvana period for hardware releases has unfortunately turned into a purgatory.

    Do you have a card to get you setup and test what you have?

    I will use my brother's RTX 3080 but only till January 10th when he will go back to Germany. With it.
    I will only test the configuration - no intentions to use a GeForce.

    That 3080 may get comfortable in its surroundings...

    It's very hot and I don't like it.

    RX 6800 XT is cheaper, cooler, draws less power and has 16 GB of VRAM instead of only 10 GB.

    My room has a very distinctive odour of molten plastics / electronics during longer gaming sessions with it...
