You don't see many motherboards with white on it and while also performing pretty great! So far its been a champ and goes well with the mod color scheme.

Picked mainly because of the color, but it does everything I need it to. Only complaint is the AI overclocking issue, but I might just be doing something wrong.

I'm not going to lie, I bought this specifically because of the color. ASUS is a great motherboard manufacturer with a great BIOS and I am not disappointing with the features I get for the price. I haven't tried overclocking yet so I cant speak for that, I have seen mixed reviews but from what I have read if I hit the silicone lottery with my CPU I should be able to get 4.9-5 GHz on all cores. Will update when I know.

There's a lot to like with this board. What features there are have been great. The main BIOS page is really easy to navigate and 90% of users will probably only be using that anyways because that's where your XMP setting and fan settings are. Aside from the "EZ mode" (literally what they call it), the menus aren't hard to navigate. Does what it's supposed to, haven't had issues with RAM overclocking or CPU overclocking.
**I had to enable legacy drive support in order for it to find Windows on my drive. If you have an issue with it showing your drives but not finding a bootable device, I can almost guarantee this is also your problem and you need to enable legacy drive in the settings.
****ASUS AURA DOES NOT WORK. Like at all. I can't even get it installed on my computer. I've done everything I've seen on every forum including a fresh install of windows and a fresh hard drive and still won't install properly. Oh well.

Not too many boards left out there with accent colors to match you system. This one does not disappoint. Tons of RGB options as well.
*The lower RBG light is mostly covered by any typical graphics card, just as an FYI.

9 out of 10, the older design looked better. The RGB is a joke honestly.

Solid Z390 board, performs and looks good (even in a black case). ASUS UEFI BIOS has a ton of options for overclocking and power management. The adaptive mode voltage and LLC work great together on this board to keep my i7-9700k stable at 5.25ghz ~1.38 volts. Bus clock was able to go all the way up to ~215. XMP works great on multiple ram kits, I've tried Corsair and G.Skill so far no issues. Managed to overclock Corsair Vengeance RGB 3000CL15 kit to ~3740 Mhz at 16-21-21-36 timing. 1.45 volts (tested for 2+ hours with MemTest64). FYI one thing to note for RAM overclockers--there is only one input value for tRCD and tRP, so you can only modify them both together.

Functionally excellent, great quality as you would expect from ASUS. Minor gripes are the BIOS menu is kind of wonky IMO and the large form factor requires a bit of effort to make all other components work even in a nice-sized tower like the Corsair 570X.
