Motherboard Recommendation

Hey guys I am building a new PC and was wondering what motherboard you would recommend if I wanted to put a Intel Core i7-9700k processor in it and i'm planning to overclock it, my limit is 250$. Thanks!

ASUS Prime or ROG on Z390 should work good. Also MSI MPG Z390 or Tomahawk should be nice alternative.

Basically all Z390 motherboards are good for i7-9700k, so my choice is ASUS because of best bios. MSI on second place.

I just returned my ASUS Z390-P Motherboard because the VRMs in it are far too weak so I couldn't overclock it, but Ill check out the others.

ASUS Has the Worse and most Overpriced line up on the z390 chipset.

 

To OP, you should look at the Gigabyte Aorus Line up (all of it) is extremely solid and worth the cost considering the features you get as you go up it.

 

AsRock Taichi also is always a pick, all in all I wouldn't personally consider the other offerings.
