Just preordered a 9700k for the new build I am working on and now I need to pick a new z390 mobo. I got it down to 2 choices, either the Taichi from ASRock or the Rog Strix Z390-E. It looks like the Taichi has overall better parts on the board (Better power delivery, capacitors, dual LAN) while the ROG Strix may have easier, more intuitive BIOS for overclocking. Aura sync also seems to be a lot better than Polychrome.
Haven’t built a computer since I was in 5th grade (almost 20 years ago lol, but that one held up through Windows 7) so it’s been a while and a lot has changed. Have never overclocked before so I may be leaning towards the Rog Strix as it seems to have one of the best, easiest BIOS On the market to use as well as Aura Sync. But I am also drawn to the Taichi for its superior hardware on board.
Anyone have experience with the Z370 models of these boards? The more hardcore enthusiasts seems to gravitate towards ASRock where as ASUS is more mainstream.
