    If is anything to go by the bios on the new x570 Higher tier boards is a big improvement over previous ones.

    Hopefully the changes will be implemented.

    If the Gigabyte Bios is laid out like their X570 updates, then it's waaaaay better than it used to be. VRM is super solid so, even me as an ASUS fanboi am happy to give them a whirl.

    Taichi is looking pretty sweet still and well priced.

    i9 10900KF + Z490i STRIX

    tempted, very tempted. mrs wants an upgrade, been tempted to just get a cheap b450 board with a 1600AF or 3300x - she only plays GTA5/Overwatch, and her i3 6100 is showing its age!

    but also very tempted to just upgrade myself, and play with new intel i9 10900KF (dont need in build gpu, can save $100) - eventhough performance for me @4k wont be a massive increase from 8086K @ 5ghz vs 10900K

    Think i might have to flip a coin, cant decide

    I still feel Taichi's price is out of place, lackluster VRM (only cheap 12 x Vishay 50A SPS, even Asus which often opt cheap solutions stepped up a bit this time around) and probably average BIOS when competing boards offer better features at the same or lower price like the Z490 Unify and Aorus Ultra both looking rather strong and cheaper than Taichi.

    The worst part yet the memory OC only goes up to 4266Mhz for Taichi if I remember right and you cannot find a single kit which supports 4266MHz in Asrock QVL (only kits of 4000MHz atm) so not sure if Asrock is falsely marketing its motherboard memory OC here...

    I'm looking at the MSI Z490 ACE.
    Looks a good board and should be able to get CPU, board and case for around $2000.
    Time for a change from Asus .

    I've currently got the Gigabyte Master Z390 Board and haven't had any troubles with the bios- seemed simple enough.I've had gigabyte mobos since the LGA1366 socket utilising a i7 920. Subjective as, but I've never encountered an issue with any of the their gear. the power delivery system for the 9 series (and replicated on the Z490 chipset) is whats got me hanging around.

    On an interesting note, I've heard from some vendors that the Corsair Vengence RGB series in its current form is going EOF. Corresponding to the 10xx launch, we might see some higher than 4K clocked ram coming in? Thoughts?

    Watching this thread with interest, my ageing 4770 is starting to struggle with some games.
    Looking at what others will end up purchasing as I am no expert, what I will be getting is MOBO/CPU/Ram/M2 ssd
    I noticed in my searches for Ram there dose not seem to a lot of choice out there at the moment above 4400 mhz I suppose that will change and mostly 8 gig per module.

    Pulled the trigger on an Aorus Master and 10900KF. Been with ASUS and MSI the last few gens, I hear Gigabyte BIOS is lacking, but even if difficult to navigate I'll just be happy if it offers similar functionality to my previous ASUS Maximus Hero. The board itself looks solid.

    I have a 360 AIO unit on hand just for ease of use, but if it doesn't cut it I have 2 x 360 rads and custom water cooling gear laying around if needed.

    Currently running an 8700k and had the upgrade itch, not so sure it was the wisest choice... YOLO

    Chilli- reference my last post, I think you will start to see some higher speed ram coming in shortly after the 10 series launch.

    Nice- Im running a Corsair H150I (360 AIO) and thats been more than enough to keep my current i9 9900k cooled at above 5ghz all cores- Should be fine for a 10900k. I've run gigabyte with one deviation into MSI- they are good quality and the VRM is decent. Don't think you will have any problems. Bios has been fine for me and i do a significant amount of overclocking for mem and CPU via bios (currently have the z390 master).

    Depending on your confidence with overclocking, I actually find gigabytes app center (which collectively lets you download their apps- specifically Easytune) really good for basic overclocking. One button press overclock for 5ghz all cores and was stable. I've seen marketing info on the new Z490 Masters showing the easy tune software pushing the 10900k to 5.5ghz...

    I had a conversation with the supplier where i pre ordered my 10900kf and was told that KF version would be available in around 5 week time while K version is estimated to be shipped to customers from 21/05. I end up changing my order to K version btw

    no idea, both my systems are ITX, and currently have z390 strix itx, and it pushes my cpu 8086k to 5.4 and my ram 3200 c14 up to 3600 c15

    assume the Z490 strix should be fine.

    both my ITX cases are rare as well. haha, will never have a full size system again!
