    Honestly, might have good luck and get it Monday if it's been cleared by then. Have had great service with DHL and usually arrives before the estimated or right on it. :)

    My verdict so far .
    I have tried the Z490 MSI ACE and the Apex XII.
    The MEG is a beast at OC the CPU but not a patch at OC RAM as either the Apex (Z490) or Gene (Z390) which are both dual slot boards so are obviously geared towards RAM OC which they do amazingly well.
    The MSI seems to understand the CPU better and gives it free reigns although your PC will crash now and again while pushing CPU to it's limits , it's worth it in the end.
    I would say the Asus is a pure RAM OC and the MSI is a pure CPU OC .
    I wish I could have half of one and half of the other.....together .
    They are both amazing boards .
    If I had to pick a winner , It's going to be my next board , the Godlike....I hope :)
    BTW....The 10900K is a beast of a CPU and leaves the K or KS for dust .
    You will need good cooling to get the most of it but it doesn't run as hot as the other 2.

    I just wish I had your knowledge on overclocking then I might be able to better utilise my godlike! Any pointers for overclocking with the MSI? (I've been garnering them slowly over time)

    MSI Boards? Play with memory try it if you got good memory around ;) I will post some results later as I just grabbed my Z490I Unify today. TBH I personally found my old MSI Z390I having better memory compatibility than my Asus Apex X and XI especially when using Galax memory.
