I’m debating between the Asrock Taichi and the Aorus Pro WiFi, new to building and could really use any advice, thank you.

If Z390 or X570 the AORUS Pro WiFi unless that is higher price then the Taichi.

It’s the X570 platform, sorry to specify

Taichi gets loud enough to hear outside of a closed case when things are being run off of the chipset so I would avoid it for that reason.

I haven't worked with a Pro but from the reviews seems a solid board without the downsides.

Chipset fan is mostly clear so it doesn't need to spin as fast to keep things cool and stays quieter.
