I'm building my first PC ever, so your input on the best motherboard for my application is greatly appreciated. I do a lot of rendering in Keyshot while also working in Solidworks, Spaceclaim and Photoshop, on top of managing 30-50 other open windows at a time where I'm running my online businesses. This isn't a gaming PC (although perhaps I'll use it sporadically for that), but I do want the best components overall. I'm trying to make sure the motherboard I get is equally matched with the rest of my components, and not going to be a weak-link in my system. Here is what I have ordered thus far:

AMD Threadripper 3970X is my processor with a Corsair H100i RGB Platinum Cooler and a Corsair HX850i PSU.

When I spoke to Nvidia they recommended the P4000/5000 cards and I chose the 5000 with 16GB of RAM.

I purchased a Corsair MP600 2TB NVMe SSD and G.Skill Trident Z Royal 128GB (4 x 32GB) DDR4-3600 RAM.

I am running Windows 10 Pro.

I have not yet purchased a case or a motherboard. I sincerely appreciate your suggestions on the best motherboard for my build. When I use PCPartPicker to build a PC, it only shows me 8 compatible motherboards, and yet when I go to other manufacturer sites it shows me more are available. It's all quite confusing to me so hopefully you experts can point me in the right direction!
