You can run two 2080 ti’s on the Gigabyte Z390 Xtreme at 8 lanes each pcie, but the MSI Z390 Godlike allows you to run two 2080ti’s at 16 each slot, is that correct? The Godlike with two 2080’s Ti’s with a i9-9900k processor, how would you recommend keeping it cool?

Im torn between asus z390-i and the asrock phantom gaming itx/ac. Does the asus board suffer the same poor vrm cooling?

edit: cool listing! thanks so much for sharing

i am shitting myself

Agustinus Alvin says:

im still waiting for maximus xi gene or maximus xi apex

gitesh wankhede says:

I have chosen ASUS Z390-E motherboard

kamilelo520 says:

what do you think about vrm z370 gaming m5? I want to buy 9900k under it

Enter Plasma says:

A motherboard isn’t just made of VRMs and reviews that just look at the power delivery are boring.

Kaze Hachijuuhachi says:

But what if you have to decide from Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi and MSI MPG z390 Gaming Edge AC (this is also on ATX size, but 20€ cheaper than gigabyte)?

Beau Gaecke says:

Best for i5 9600k?

Stephen Kennedy says:

What nobody heard of the Maximus XI Gene which wipes the floor of all the other m-atx boards

Juan Hurtado says:

@Hardware Unboxed I was just about to buy the Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX motherboard based on this video. However, I saw a review on newegg where it mentions that some DIMMs will not fit properly, and it seems that the TridentZ DIMMs do not fit properly (I already own TridentZ DIMMs and want to keep using them). I think that these details are important to mention when reviewing motherboards. I really liked this video!

Angilson Reyes says:

MSI ACE VS GIGABYTE MASTER? Which one is best for the i9 9900k?

jan naznaczony says:

which one should i pick? Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER or ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING or MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ??

Deviltamer says:

Great video (enjoyed it even I dont plan on buying any intel board any time soon).
Zen 2 can’t come fast enough. Upgrading to Zen 2 will be great for sure.

ILiekPlanes says:

Is Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Ultra or Master worth

Norman Rand Wolfe says:

You seem to have missed one very important factor in the “Best of the Best”, the Gigabyte XTreme has a PLC chip on board, which is an $80 to $100 part, while the Godlike does not, which is unacceptable in a board priced that high… Just for that reason alone, Gigabyte wins it all, by far. As for MSI, almost $700 and no PLC chip? Disgraceful!

CWJT says:

Steve is a gigabyte fanboy. Everyone knows their bios suck and it is enough not to recommend them.

Quplas says:

Did I miss midrange Z390 review? This is the first time I hear him compare them. Specifically interested in Extreme4 vs Strix vs Aorus Elite vs MSI.

LdSiris says:

But I heard gigabyte bios sucks

Aston Martin says:


myth _ says:

Im looking for z390 boards with wifi got any recommendations?

Hirens says:

Wich should I pick? They have the same price here I want the best VRM that I can get for this price! And no, I can’t go for Gigabyte Elite because it costs a lot more.

Autronic says:

Z390, and there are 390 comments.
legit stuff.

Travis says:

There is another minor difference between the elite and pro board. The pro uses Japanese capacitors near the vrms while the elite uses cheaper Taiwanese capacitors.
