Great motherboard but seemingly lacks future proofing hardware offered by cheap boards from other brands 6/15/2020 8:18:23 PM

Pros: Amazing VRM and power delivery

Top Notch BIOS, lots options with descriptions and easy to use.

Easy overclocking, 5.3Ghz on my 10900K is possible with this board.

Great all matte black theme, really good RGB. Overall looks of this board are a huge draw.

Cons: Seems to lack PCIE 4.0 hardware offered by nearly every other Z490 brand even on their budget lines.

Overall Review: Overall the board is great but the lack of advertised future proof ready hardware is a huge drawback. I would look to other brands this round.

Great board 6/11/2020 12:35:38 PM

Overall Review: Got this to upgrade from my Maximus hero XI, which I loved. Not disappointed with the upgrade at all. Great to build on and quite a looker. The bios is as deep as you want it to be, but the AI overclocking is great to get your feet wet.

Solid board 6/6/2020 8:36:43 PM

Pros: Lots of plugs for fans, RGB, m2 and everything you'd need. Used 2 weeks now and it's a solid board and great features, updates easily and well, it's a ROG board, solid so far with excellent performance.

Cons: None that I've found

Overall Review: ASUS makes great boards, sometimes they slip a bit, but this is not a slip at all, fantastic board and feature set, tons of plugs for everything and it handles the power of a 10700K like a rock star. Perfect board to grab, price could be more affordable, but besides that, this ones a winner.
