Looking to see if there's any ITX motherboard that's focused on overclocking and has featureset similar (doesn't have to be identical) to the X570 Crosshair 8 Impact?

Most boards I've seen are low end for B550 which makes me sad :|

But maybe there's a board that I missed that might be a great pick?

The problem is not the few ITX but I would say more on the lack of headroom from the Ryzen CPUs to overclock as nicely as the intel.... I have the Phantom B550 and its running great but AMD out of the box already have plenty of performance, personally on a ITX I keep things at stock as it constrain airflow makes things even more complicated.

The Crosshair 8 Impact is not a true ITX motherboard at all - but actually a slightly larger DTX-sized motherboard. As such, it makes sense only if the case is limited to a smaller-than-mATX form factor but has three expansion slots (to better accommodate triple-slot GPUs). Forget about it if the case has only two expansion slots (typical of a mini-ITX case).
