What Z390 board?

Hey everyone

 

I am buying a 9900K and I need to know what motherboard I should buy with it.

I am looking at the Z390 Aorus Pro, but if you have anything you would recommend more, please let me know.

 

I do not really want to go over 240€, so keep that in mind. And I the board needs wifi

 

Thanks,

Shinion

As far as I'm concerned, better boards break your budget so the pro is as good as it gets.

More expensive? Because the Pro should be more expensive by a bit.

its master>elite>pro right?

But you're forgetting the ultra as well, which has been more than the Master (or was it more than the elite, IDK if it's above or below that) on PCPartPicker when it should be less, and then the Master is costing more than the Designaire that used to be in between that and the Extreme.

Another good alternative is the Z390 Taichi, comes with WIFI , pretty powerful VRMs and very good bios. If you overclock is one of the best choices, you can argue there are higher VRMs on some others but unless you extreme overclock, the Taichi is more than enough for pretty high overclocks.
What I also like about them is their bios, plenty of options and pretty easy to tweak.
