Which motherboard for 9900KF

Any decent z390 will do. Now Asus has some crazu good x570 boards with wide budget range. But i heard rumors that asus strix z390-f has some vrm issues?

Anyway go with asus z390 strix-f if you want. Gigabyte aorus and ultra are good too. No need to buy that expensive maximus board.

 

And why wont you just get i9 9900 or something if you do not plan to overclock.

ROG STRIX Z390-F GAMING or Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro should be enough if you don't overclock

I mean, frankly i have no idea what the KF skew is, but if you're not intending on overclocking, you'll be perfectly fine on any of those, those are pretty close to top notch. I would be looking at the features they have. Like if youre just going with a simple setup, like one GPU and 2 sticks of ram, id just be looking at what they have to offer for I/o, id be looking at what technologies youll benefit from, on the board, how many sata connections you'll need for hard drives and SSDs, I'm no expert with these boards, im more broke so i dont look at those. but im sure they all have an extra feature or two that will set it apart from the others.

Why are you buying a K series processor if you don't plan on overclocking?

Although you may plan to do it later and perhaps that's your idea.

The F means no iGPU (dedicated video card required, no quicksync capability).

I am currently using a MSI z390 Gaming Edge AC with my 9900KF and had it at a stable 5.2GHz OC (I say stable but for some reason GTA V Did not like the overclock so i removed the overclock) and have not had any issues with it
