This is probably the best balance of features per dollar of any Z390 board. Far superior to any Asus offerings in the Z390 chipset. It’s also quite a good looking board with some nice lighting effects, should that be your thing. | The 12+1 VRM alone is worth the price, allowing for ample, clean power for overclocking, even on the power hungry i9 9900k. Running stable at 5Ghz on all 8 with hyper threading still enabled. | Note that you DO NOT need to use the full 8+4 CPU power connectors, unless you are doing some extreme overclocking. 8 pins alone will provide around 300w. Most PSUs still lack a secondary ETX connection, so don’t worry about it. | My one issue with this board is you will have to have LAN drivers ready to go on a memory stick, as there are no generics that will install and that can be a bit of a headache. Gigabytes software is also… Ok at best. They clearly spend their budget on product engineering, not software. | 10/10, buy an Aorus Z390 board if you’ve got a 9th gen on the way.
