Which ASUS Z370 motherboard?

Go to solution Solved by HKZeroFive,

Why ASUS? Every single motherboard manufacturer has good and bad boards, so you shouldn't restrict yourself to just one brand.

 

Those boards are fine for a i7-8700K, but you can normally get an ASRock Fatal1ty K6 for less... and that's a better motherboard than the ones you've listed above.

From a bit of research I decided to go with the ASUS Z370 motherboard lineup for my 8700k (unless my research was wrong, let me know D;).

 

But there's so many different ones, what are the differences and which one should I pick?

Specifically the Z370-A, Z370-E and Z370-F. The price difference is pretty significant on some.

 

Some things I need:

> ATX

> High-ish (water cooling) GPU and CPU overclock

> 1x M.2 NVMe drive (Samsung 960 Evo 500GB)

> 2x8GB 3200 MHz RAM (possibly upgrade to 4x8GB later)

I'm not restricting myself :P I'm open to suggestions for other respected brands.

 

The reason I'm asking is because from my knowledge the board can drastically change the overclocking potential. Is that dependent on luck, brand or model?

Welp, after thinking about it for a bit I went with your suggestion :)
