My parents have a standard Xfinity XB3 Dual-Band WiFi 802.11ac router with 2.4 and 5.0 bands. My room is a floor and 2 walls in the way of their router and my internet tests run my download speed at just under 200mbps.

I need a WIFI motherboard as I have no ethernet wall ports in my room. Just 30 year old wanna be fucking phone jacks, LMAO. 

I'm a first time builder switching over from APPLE. I have chosen the i9-9900K (DON'T ARGUE AMD, I KNOW WHAT I WANT), and do the Wifi Motherboard must be Z390 and LGA 1151.

I plan to overclock the CPU as much as I can get away with using air-cooling (DON'T ARGUE WATER COOLING, I KNOW WHAT I WANT), but only to the point where I am not sacrificing the lifespan of the CPU too drastically.

 

I need your help to find the best Intel Z390 LGA1151 WiFi AC Motherboard that has OverClocking headroom that can support many case fans, and most importantly, that will have a reliable WiFi Connection considering that it'll need to reach a router 2 walls and a floor towards the router. Price is not as big a concern, though going above $250 you'll really need to sell me. Must be ATX form factor. Must use 802.11 AC wifi.

 

I was originally thinking of the: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard but I've seen a few concerning customer reviews that claim of spotty wifi connection.

 

But I've also considered the:

Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI (rev. 1.0)

MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC

 

I'd like to hear other considerations that check all my boxes listed above.

 

Here is the PC Parts List I plan to get, but the motherboard is placeholder:

the real total is around $3,300 after MI tax, and they will be produced and available for purchase again by the time I get the other half saved up.

Honestly, just get an iMac Pro with 3x3 Wi-Fi. Nothing on those boards even comes close to what Apple put in the overpriced iMacs in terms of wireless
