    I made a few batch scripts for the NVIDIA System Management Interface program.

    Darn it, this Z390 motherboard(I still use my Z370 Maximus X Hero which is great, see my max OC in my signature) keeps going in circles around my head for months: Z390 AORUS XTREME (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Global

    This is one of those things, were the devil is on the right shoulder whispering "get it", and the angel on the left, saying "you don't need it"
    Yep I have voices in my head, and tech dreams at night
    Some things to be aware of (perhaps you already are but) ….

    First, the board is an E-ATX board. It also requires two 12V 2X4 pin connectors (two 8-pin connectors).

    If you’re using two front UBS 3.0 connectors for the front case panel, be aware this board only has one front USB 3.0 connector, while the other front header is used for a USB 3.1 header (USB Type C).

    So, for example since my case supports 5 front USB ports (4 USB 3.0, 1 USB 3.1 type C) and this MB only has connections for one USB 3.0 connection, and one USB type C connection, two of my 4 USB 3.0 front ports can’t be used because there’s only one USB 3.0 front port on the board. Check the layout on page 7 of the owner’s manual.

    I do like that both the 24-pin and front USB 3.0 connectors are right angled; a bit baffled why the USB 3.1 port isn’t though.

    lastly, I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced Gigabyte’s UEFI, but it is "different" than what you may be used to in Asus. Steve Burke labeled Gigabyte’s UFEI “confusing”. Anyway though, I’ve never used ASUS’s UEFI (never owned an ASUS board), all the images and videos I’ve seen makes me wish Gigabyte had a similar layout.

    Outside of that the board is well made and rock-solid quality. Once you pick it up you know it’s a solid piece of hardware that's well made. Board accessories includes a fan commander and overclock panel.

    As for overclocking, I’ve not extreme overclocked mine, so I can’t say how well it actually performs, but I’ve no doubt it’d do very well with a 9900K. Though many see the “price” as a negative, they also acknowledged you get a solid piece of hardware (perhaps a bit overkill – heat sink design, 16 phases) for that money.

    I bought the board for it’s potential, but also because I wanted to build a high-end system on a high-end board. Overkill and wasted money, perhaps…. but isn't this what PC enthusiasts do

    Not trying to talk you into the board, just pointing out some stuff to consider.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for bringing those points up, I am looking for more reasons than I have, NOT to get it, really

    It would be nice to just use one(maybe on an open bench) for the three weeks vacation
    We need a PC hardware parts rental shop

    No shame in that, that's what PC enthusiasts do. We want the best of the best. This board looks like a beast.

    Now, just don't get into Horology. That's expensive and just show the time haha. Tech and Horology are my 2 vices.

    @Cliff S, No problem Cliff, just wanted you to be aware of some things.

    @Brawndo, LOL had to look up Horology to see what that was about. No. I won't be making any watches. And isn't life really an exercise in time :)

    Okay @sygnus21 I went through your "checklist", thanks for bringing them up, so I could do some research.

    Some things to be aware of (perhaps you already are but) ….

    First, the board is an E-ATX board.
    My Phanteks Enthoo Pro can easily handle that.

    It also requires two 12V 2X4 pin connectors (two 8-pin connectors).
    I have a Corsair HX1000i High Performance ATX Power Supply 80+ Platinum, no problem there.

    If you’re using two front UBS 3.0 connectors for the front case panel, be aware this board only has one front USB 3.0 connector, while the other front header is used for a USB 3.1 header (USB Type C).
    I only use the front USB 3.0 for updating my Macrium recovery disk, or just before Win10 version upgrades, to make an image of all internal disks(I usually create an image to an internal disk for fat recovery when updating software, or doing something I probably shouldn't, but want to try, because it recovers faster when using the boot menu option)., incase the upgrade doesn't go well.
    I use the back USB ports for everything else(webcam, mouse, keyboard... etc.)



    lastly, I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced Gigabyte’s UEFI, but it is "different" than what you may be used to in Asus. Steve Burke labeled Gigabyte’s UFEI “confusing”. Anyway though, I’ve never used ASUS’s UEFI (never owned an ASUS board), all the images and videos I’ve seen makes me wish Gigabyte had a similar layout.
    I like learning new things & UEFI/BIOS setups, plus I learn tech stuff pretty fast, and actually find it exciting, as I get bored once I understand something thoroughly.(I bet retirement will kill me with boredom)
    And... there's always you guys here, if I get stuck

    Outside of that the board is well made and rock-solid quality. Once you pick it up you know it’s a solid piece of hardware that's well made. Board accessories includes a fan commander and overclock panel.
    I seen that, and read the GC-OC Touch cable isn't all that long.
    That's too bad, as it would be nice to mount the GC-OC touch panel to the front of my case where the optical drive bay cutouts are.
    Yeah I know it's for a testbench, but it would look badass on the front of the case, and be nice for quick adjustments.

    As for overclocking, I’ve not extreme overclocked mine, so I can’t say how well it actually performs, but I’ve no doubt it’d do very well with a 9900K. Though many see the “price” as a negative, they also acknowledged you get a solid piece of hardware (perhaps a bit overkill – heat sink design, 16 phases) for that money.

    It's expensive, but worth it for all they have done to keep it cool, like two layers of copper in the PCB and four heatpipes, and the VRMs will guaranteed not cause any thermal throttling, and last probably forever, delivering a clean low-to-no voltage ripple voltage flow for stable high clocks.
