Asus!! Can you please include a USB stick with the drivers. No one has a cdrom drive in 2018!

from completed build All Asus Build- Razer peripherals.
Gunna go 4 stars on this one. I would recommend going for the next motherboard above this in Asus line up. Everything is amazing I just have two little things that keeps me from giving it 5 stars. 1st is the WiFi antenna should be direct connected not through a stand and wires. 2nd I think the M.2 covers should be larger for better cooling with an option to install a fan blowing air over each one. They can include it just like they do for the VRM fan and fan mount. Throw two more of those in there would be perfect. Other then that it’s an amazing Mobo. Bios and updating Bios works very easy and flawless.

from completed build The Mothership: 1440p 144Hz Gaming/Blender Rig
Solid board. Wanted Bluetooth for my headphones, M.2 covers, and something that looked nice. The 9th gen STRIX boards get flack for their VRMs not being as top tier, but I've seen people do 9900k with this board and OC just fine. ASUS has always been my go to brand especially for the BIOS quality.
One week in: AI overclock got it up to 5.2 Ghz on air before becoming unstable. Ran a few benchmarks but AIDA64 gave and instant BSOD. Froze in Time Spy as well. 5GHz profile worked but not stable temperature. 90C+ peak temps with a 250TDP cooler. Yikes. At 5GHz on all 8 cores I hit 94C peak but that is likely due me using the 5GHz profile and not doing real overclocking. The voltages they use are VERY high. Built in firmware TPM made setting up Bitlocker a breeze; no need to buy a TPM module although the board supports one. BIOS is top notch. M.2 SSD shield I found didn't really do much for SSD temps; during full SSD encryption my temps were somewhat high at 65-69C; possibly worst than not using the metal shield... I know I took that plastic off the thermal pad...
I also ended up not using the Wifi/Bluetooth so I could have probably saved money getting the Strix z390-F. It works out of the box with Bose QC35 II headphones, but like other Bluetooth modules there is about 100-200ms of delay and in games that just doesn't work for me. The max volume is also lower than wired and the sound quality is also lower. The headphones/bluetooth are to blame for this. As for the WiFi, one gigabit Ethernet is always going to destroy WiFi.

AI overclocking works great, and there's an extra M.2 Slot for expandability or RAID if you want. Lighting works great and AURA software works well enough to deliver the effect you want.

Beautiful board. The integrated IO shield is really nice and fits much easier into the case than their 8th gen IO shields. The included VRM fan is a nice touch and the RGB is nice and not over the top.
I did have some issues with the m.2 SATA drive. The Z390-E is supposed to auto detect which type of m.2 you have installed and it wasn't doing that. I had to manually set it to SATA in the bios before the drive would recognize.

from completed build I can’t stop staring at it. Clean new build in an older case.
I’m mostly happy with this board. I like how it looks (aside from the gamer tag words on the IO shield haha), it has dual M2 Slots, lots of features, good IO with lots of USB ports, high build quality, excellent bios, strong power delivery. I’d suggest reading up on ASUS MCE and Armoury Crate before your first boot in case you want to disable those things. I have some issues with the on board sound that I haven’t been able to solve. I’m running an optical out to an external DAC/headphone amp (Audioengine D1) and I regularly get popping sounds through the speakers or headphones. This occurs on boot and when volume changes quickly, it’s especially bad with Youtube videos. Drivers have been stripped and reinstalled many times, updated bios, tried different cables with and without the DAC, tried headphones direct to the front and rear ports too, nothing helps. Researching online it seems that many ASUS mobos have had this issue and they haven’t done much to fix it. I might consider a separate sound card to bypass the on board audio but this is disappointing for a board at this price.

Debated for awhile between Gigabyte & Asus; in the end went with Asus for the BIOS mostly.

I have owned a metric butt ton of Asus motherboards. Every single z390 board to date and this by far is my favourite board. It overclocks well, is very stable and in my opinion is the best looking in the class.
