    Great in depth review as always Hilbert , thank you. The motherboard it is a dream to run , absolutely perfect as per my own testing too. One of the best if not the best price to performance ratio based on features , overclocking and high end 8+2 vrm. Asus did hit it out of the ball bark with this updated Z390 board.

    wow wotta mobo.
    this is a complete departure from their (fail!) x299 ROG board...meaning the ridiculously hot VRMs - that hurt my opinion of Asus at the HEDT space, but that has been repaired with a proper ROG Intel Board

    Thank you , yes indeed it is a big fat 4 phase vrm for the cpu. Not as bad as people are saying as it works great for me i9 9900K at 5.2Ghz stable overclock.

    So knowing all the facts about this board can anyone say for sure that it will fully overclock or use the i9 9900k to its full potential. I like many others have bought this thinking it was 8 phase only to be deeply dissappointed. I cant return it as I am one day over 30 from Newegg. I am about to start my build and would like to know if I should just buy the Extreme board and sell or keep the XI hero for backup. @chispy you said your stable at 5.2ghz?

    When I bought this I thought I was buying a high end board but I guess not... Buildzoid review was awesome but he really didnt speculate about its use for the i9 9900k overclocking. I really dont know what to think at this point.
