It's all good, but Zen 3 has some serious USB-related issues, across all X570 and B550 boards. AMD did release an update, but it didn't really fix it properly. People are still talking about issues of using keyboard, mouse often disconnecting. That's not what you'd want from a new system. I'd rather go for what is reliable than better performing.

The main reason I went Intel recently. AMD CPUs are excellent, no doubt, but a CPU is only as good as it's chipset/platform. The flakey side-issues surrounding AMD systems are enough to keep me away.
