the z390 aorus pro is very similar to the asus z390e iirc. (will be a somewhat higher premium compared to normal z390) MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC - has built in wifi around 270-290 range for you MSI - MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC - built in wifi 330-360 Asus - Prime Z370-A II - no wifi but it comes in at around 229-250 (https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/H43H99/asus-prime-z370-a-ii-atx-lga1151-motherboard-prime-z370-a-ii)

Asus - ROG STRIX Z370-F - no wifi and comes in around the 269-300 mark Asus - TUF Z370 Plus - no wifi and comes in around 200-240 mark

I would lean towards either the asus one or an MSI one as the bios on asus and msi are better than the interface of gigabyte/aorus and asrock from my experience. The asus TUF line of boards supposedly have more premium components compared to their normal lineup, same can be said about the ROG lineup as well.

Hope these other recommendations do help your choice out a bit more by giving you a slightly bigger selection if you wanted different looks to what you had in mind. The prices i have listed there are based on the AU prices at the time of writing this reply.

what tetsuclaw said is correct. the older boards will need a bios upgrade. buying z390 also makes ur board more "future ready" so it is ideal to buy a z390 if you are building a system for first time

There are Z370 boards with wifi (asus or msi higher end boards). the built in wifi ones offer antennas to use the built in wifi and for a board without wifi, you can plug a wifi card into the pcie slot to make it wifi enabled.

usually the built in wifi boards also have bluetooth. the wifi cards range from 20-100$ for the higher end ones so i would usually just get one with built in wifi. furthermore, sometimes the pcie x1 slot is not spaced enough so putting a gpu in would block off the access to the wifi card slot so bear that in mind

ROG Z390E. I have a Z390 E board with a 8700k 32gb ddr4 3200mhz ram and this board manages it all perfectly. temperatures are awesome as well, m.2 drive heatsinks is great as well as a premounted io shield.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/compare/ASUS_MAXIMUS_IX_HERO_vs_ASUS_STRIX_Z390-E/BHitems/1438191-REG_1438192-REG this link shows a more in depth comparison, but keep in mind the maximus is a bit more expensive, and it also has a rgb zone on the bottom right heatsink

node and hub are different. the node is to control the colors via icue, the hub is to plug the rgb headers into. then said hub plugs into 1 of 2 slots on the node

you can lowkey mount a 80mm fan on the back grill although no predefined fan mounts like the air 240 rear

nice build, i wouldve gone for 2x16 for better speeds using only 2 channels and then a dimm lighting kit (to fill slots for rgb but are just sticks with no ram) but seeing as this is for light stuff, this setup will work.

great build overall

the samsung 970 evo plus is a much faster M.2 than the WD 500gb Blue. The 970 evo is slightly more but the performance and speeds are phenomenal

thank you for this build post. I am currently considering this case (over the air 540) and have been seeing alot more insightful pics from you and other builders of this case. The dust filters on most of the vents/holes are a plus as well as the drive cages at the back/opposite chamber whereas the 540 had the HDD drives at the bottom (WITH NO FILTER)
