Pretty much any X570 board will do this, most have 3 slots that are PCIe 4.0 x4 capable for that matter. I'm assuming this client will want the 3950X or 5950X too, so you're looking at more a mid-high end board with a decent VRM setup.

As far as I know B550 only supports 1 M.2 at PCIe 4.0, so I don't think there's much point looking at those.

thanks gents. I haven't followed the X570 due to the insane price they command.

none of the mfr sites allow you to sort by how many M.2 connectors they have. :p

I thought the x570 was pretty reasonable to be honest. Glad I bought it and not something lower end.
I agree. The price different between them isnt that great to be honest, but like anything, its up to the individual to identify the features they want at the cost they want to pay.
