This might not be possible, yet. Thunderbolt 4 being the hard part, if it's even available. If the TB-4 is an expansion card that's fine too, the mobo must support it though.

Requirements:
- 2 m.2 NVME drives (1 needs to be 1 TB min)
- 2 large (maybe 12gb) internal hard drives
- no CD necessary
- gazillion USB (including multiple Thunderbolt 4)
- easy access tower (smallest footprint possible with all the above)

I remember watching a video on LTT about thunderbolt and AMD. it seems he had quite a few issues and went back to intel.

I pinged @GamerNexus to see if they'll have a look at the board. There's literally nothing other than unboxing reviews.
Maybe hardwarecanucks can have a look?

It can be challenging building computers for people who want bleeding edge. There's not a lot of info/reviews out there for new stuff.

IIRC it was the pc his wife uses on the regular so it had to be stable. I tried looking up the video for you, but he has way too many for me to sift through.

Thanks man. I had a look too. Like I said, there's nothing. Pretty sure he was using TB3 and there was some issues.

EDIT: My bad. His issue was with ASUS not with AMD. But maybe still applies. IDK. Good luck.

May not apply to you, I just thought I'd let you know.

Here's the video.

Yeah it would be nice to see some reviews/testing on it. The silicon in TB4 should be identical to that of TB3 , its merely a spec change (all optional parts are now mandatory) but maybe they fixed some gremlins.

This computer will never sleep, so hopefully it isn't an issue.
