    for my new 9900k Had some crappy luck with a couple of gigabyte aorus pro wifi boards recently and need something to replace that as Amazon won't send me another as other customers have also returned the item with the same problem that I ran into. So.. what motherboards ya all like ?

    In my opinion theses 2 are the better options available but it all depends on your budget:
    I have tested both motherboards and they perform alike and can handle 9900k overclock with ease. Now if no budget limit go for the Asus ROG Maximus Apex ;)

    ASRock Z390 Taichi - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157857

    Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero (wi-fi) - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813119150

    I just built a PC with 8700K. Right now you cannot beat AsRock for quality. I got the AsRock Extreme4 and love it. Taichi is also a very good model. Check out NewEgg reviews for each. The price for each are very similar. Here is what i find interesting
    5-4 star rating
    Taichi = 81%
    ROG = 48%

    1 start rating
    Taichi = 14%
    ROG = 24%

    Almost 1 in 4 people where dissatisfied with the ROG. That's pretty bad.
