Good Motherboard 7/6/2020 9:05:58 PM

Overall Review: I was about to go with another strix z390f for my son's build, but decided to try something different. Considering the price of the Prime z390a, I decided to give it a try. My son's pc is a mid tower, so the mb was a bit tight and just enough clearance for the exhaust fan. I just left the overclock on auto. So far, it is going strong. I just wished that the I/O was attached to the mb. I can't really complain to much about it.

Won't Accept 4 Sticks of RAM 7/6/2020 2:19:18 PM

Pros: Nice MB with a lot of features for the price.

Cons: Won't boot with all RAM slots full. It will only work with 1 or 2 slots.

Overall Review: Sent one back and have received another one that I will install tonight to see if the problem is isolated to a bad MB. I've read that several people have had the same problem with this MB.
I bought the MB for one reason, it's white and would match my build. Big mistake. I should have went with an MSI MB.
I went out and bought another set of Corsair Dominator Platinum just to test the board and make sure it wasn't a problem with my RAM, same problem.
If this new one does the same thing, I'll be sending it back and getting an MSI and not worrying about the color.

Love Asus products and this is no exception 6/23/2020 9:53:00 PM

Pros: -Good price for all the features and quality you get
-I like the Asus AI suite for it's ease of use and ability to OC my I5-9600k to 5Ghz with no problems
-It's a good looking board with the black PCB and white/RGB accents
-It's capable of Nvidia SLI which I am running with GTX 1080s
-2 NVME slots, one capable of Optane
-Recognized the XPG profile on the RAM with no problems
-Comes with a HD SLI connector

Cons: -It was a tight fit in my Be Quiet! Pure Base 500DX case, especially when trying to put the 8pin CPU
connector up by the IO cover. I actually had to unscrew the MB, pull it out and connect the cable,
then screw the MB back in the case

Overall Review: This was the second MB I purchased for this build. The first one did not support SLI, which wasn't a problem when I first planned this PC, as I didn't have two video cards to put in SLI.

It definitely hit that sweet spot of SLI capability, NVMe connectivity, modest RGB, Black PCB, and build quality. I had decided to buy this board and found out that Newegg was out of stock, so I waited and waited until it came back in and jumped on it.

There might be better boards out there for overclocking the high end Intel chips (especially the I9 models), but this unit had no problem taking the I5-9600K to high OC levels.
