Confused on which motherboard to buy. B550 AORUS PRO or X570 AORUS ELITE?

The one thing I still miss about the crosshair 4 extreme was having the full coverage waterblock for the motherboard. No fan at all to worry about.

moving from pci-express 3 -> 4 brought the fans back but it seems most of them are fairly quiet. But what is going to happen when the mainstream jumps up to 5.

Getting the ASRock Rack B550 when they become available.
Fans no problem for me, I’ve got 3 x 12k rpm front to back in a 1U loud as a vacuum.

I just need the AMD Zen 3 w/ the new cache design.

Having PCI 3.0 x 4 on the NVMe M.2 is faster than my apps will use too.

To me Less Is More.

I can honestly say I've never heard the chipset fan on my Asus Prime X570 Pro.
I never heard the fan on my Asrock either but funny enough the latest bios has given passive fan mode, so I checked and my chipset fan was stopped. Then again my house was 17 degrees inside...

If i had to do it over again I'd have gotten B550 or something fanless. Granted they're nothing like the bygone days of the 90s where you could hear a PC startup across the room, I still don't like extra moving parts if I can help it.
