Most Favorable Review

Great deal with the i7-10700K Avenger CPU combo

ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-F GAMING LGA 1200 (Intel 10th Gen) Intel Z490 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard (12+2 Power Stages, DDR4 4800, Intel 2.5Gb Ethernet, USB 3.2 Front Panel Type-C, Dual M.2 and AURA Sync)
ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-F GAMING LGA 1200 (Intel 10th Gen) Intel Z490 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard (12+2 Power Stages, DDR4 4800, Intel 2.5Gb Ethernet, USB 3.2 Front Panel Type-C, Dual M.2 and AURA Sync)

Pros: Straightforward installation Plenty of fan headers Seems to be plenty of room for air coolers Standard layout helps when connecting peripherals Substantial heatsinks for VRM components

Cons: RAM module latches at top of board make it hard to remove them while mounted in case A few more water pump headers than necessary. My Corsair H100 AIO uses SATA connector for power anyway. Not confident aux. VRM fan mount has clearance to be usable in most cases or with an aircooled CPU Not sure the M2 SSD heatsinks can actually cool as the SSDs have a sticker on them blocking the TIM (if that's what the soft white pad is on the heatsinks)

Overall Review: This is my 3rd straight ASUS mobo and 2nd with UEFI BIOS. Lots of options for overclocking CPU. Navigating UEFI is straightforward. The EZ FLash BIOS update feature is the bomb. Not a fan of update software that tracks personal info so I opted to download all the latest drivers and BIOS individually. Installation and setup were smooth and quick. Newegg is a bit overenthusiastic with their order notifications. There's nothing but good things to say about the order and delivery service as it was fast and efficient.

Great as a combo deal with the ASUS Strix Z490-F mobo

Intel Core i7-10700KA Comet Lake 8-Core 3.8 GHz LGA1200 125W Desktop Processor w/ Intel UHD Graphic 630 - Avengers Special Edition (Avengers Game Not Included) - BX8070110700KA

Cons: The orientation mark is not as easy to make out as it could be.

Overall Review: It's a CPU. It does its job. Newegg's order and delivery process is fast and efficient.
