Ooof, for that price they can keep it. I'll put a monoblock on the Hero 8 and have the CPU and VRMs under water for far less money.

A few other ASUS boards are on Amazon UK when I looked earlier; if they are not placeholders and are indicative on how much X570 boards are going to cost, then it'll be a very hard pass for me. I'd rather buy a top rated X470 instead

Monoblock only if you go for the looks. Hero can run with no heatsink at all just fine.

If you asked me some time back do I need to go for X370, or X470 board I would recommend X370. There was no major difference. Better memory compatibility, but nothing too grand. With X570 you get much more. PCIe 4.0 drives can be a good thing. But more importantly Precision Boost Overdrive. It will run much better on the new Chipset. Also, new CPUs have much more architectural differences than the previous gen. Yes, they will work with old boards, but X570 is where they really shine.

Oh for sure, those VRMs don't even get taxed on the Hero7, even if you're doing nutso LN2 OCing. Monoblocks just make cooling easier IMO. And having the VRMs under water certainly won't hurt anything. Now if only better companies than EK would put out monoblocks (Bitspower doesn't count to me, since they're crazy over-priced and ugly AF). God how I wish Watercool did more motherboard specific stuff!

I mean, if you want to run a 12 or 16 core, then sure get an expensive board. This seems a little much though?

If there are no drawbacks with using a Zen 2 chip on an X470 mobo then I'll just stick to my CH7 Hero and get the 3900X, I can see the Hero 8 being £400 and if that's a sign of things to come this will be my last PC purchase for a very long time.

That's absurd. Why is the motherboard more expensive than 90% of the processors? What a ridiculous phase we're in. I feel like slapping everyone like in that Slap video on YouTube.
