All of the X470 boards looked pretty competent. I'm not planning on doing fancy overclock tweaking or I might have gone with the Asus CH IIV. The Asrock Taichi claims to support ECC which I may find myself wanting. Having decided on the Taichi, and considering that I want this build to last a few years, I figured why not spend the bit extra for the 10GBe.
So far so good ... it's a full featured board and has been pretty easy to work with. The BIOS can be confusing, and the BIOS helps and documentation is utter dogcrap. But it's workable. (The helps and doc will typically describe the "xsprotz" setting as "Enables or disables xsprotz". Thanks, but I had the enabled/disabled part figured out already...) With the early July BIOS update, I couldn't get 32 Gb to run at 3200MT/s, but I did manage a stable 3066 without doing any tweaking - good enough for me.
This board is great, but in my experience it has been frustratingly inconsistent. Buy at your own risk.
I didn't need to get this board, I just wanted to. I hope it will overclock well.
