last year when the z370 boards launch, i specifically remember that the prime p was one of the worst boards, so is the msi gaming plus.

 

EVGA had the z370 ftw on clearance for 100usd for a good while, the asrock extreme4 was 110usd, gimme a sec to look through newegg canada for ya, don't get those 2 boards u listed unless there's nothing else.

this is decent and you also save some money assuming you do the rebate, seems like the price is the 139usd and ALSO 139cad.

the z390 gigabyte i linked is still a better board, so see if you also see it as 139 cad-40rebate.

 

Everything else is so inflated, no wonder linus says canadian pesos.

Can you try to explain me what is the difference between those motherboard, aka what makes some good and other "trash"?
