Help me to find a ATX Main board with ECC that is not for gaming + tower case

(1/11) > >>


I burned my fingers with the ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE. I don`t like it, and I returned it (I make the story short).

This is what I am after:

CPU: AMD 5900X
Cooler : Noctua NH-D15S
RAM: 2x32GB 32GB ECC UDIMM DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 Memory for QNAP TS-h1886XU-RP-D1622-32G!<-- very important for me it. ECC must work.
PCIe 4.0
Support for two Nmve M2 SSD
GPU: Geforce GTX 3090
Dual LAN: Nice to have... not critical
WIFI: Not required
Fan for chipset: not required, I would like no fan in the Motherboard if possible.
No overclocking!
COM Port: oh yes! very nice to have

It must be a motherboard more workstation oriented and less gaming as possible.
Main goal is stability. I do not like RGB led at all.

And since we are here please suggest me a good tower case.

I would also try to not buy ASUS.

PS: why it is so hard to build a PC that is not for gaming today?

If you don't like gaming LEDs, just turn them off or desolder them.

What you're looking for is not a product any company will sell because it will not make money.

Perfectly doable, but what about the ECC support? Looks like AMD X570 is supporting ECC out of the box... but I don't like to buy something hoping it will work...
Anyway in other words, what is the most reliable motherboard you would suggest?

Interesting reading

As far as I know, Gigabyte boards support ECC well.

I have Gigabyte B550M Aorus Pro-P :

No over the board RGB, just some orange highlights, only downside is that is has only 4 sata ports and maybe pci-e layout could have been better (I mean have a pci-e x1 slot above the video card slot)

Only one ethernet card, but you can add one in the bottom slot, if it's not blocked by video card.

2nd m.2 is provided by chipset, so it has pci-e 3.0 lanes.

But look at the ATX Gigabyte B550 boards , b550 Aorus Pro and up. Elite is OK but they cheaped out on IO shield features (has dvi and few usb connectors)

All boards or pretty much all boards have COM headers, so you can just buy a bracket with the serial ports separately, it's like 1-2$. Don't look for serial ports on IO shield, look for onboard headers.
