What customers say about "Key Specs"
Gigabyte Z390 UD Motherboard
  • I paired with an i5 and the processor ran with no issues.
  • Excellent, average priced Ultra Durable board for intel processors.

  • Rock solid from the go. Blazing performance with the i5 9600k and gskill 3200 RAM.
  • It will support 9th gen Intel chips if you want to upgrade ladder.
ASUS Prime Z390-P ATX Motherboard
  • If you want a mobo for 8th/9th gen Intel processor with m.2 capability look at this.
  • It does an amazing job. It works well with my i7 9700K.
  • Clean design, works well with 9th gen Intel Core CPUs. Lots of PCI-e expansion ports.

  • Motherboard only works with one stick of DDR4.
  • RAM originally wouldn't work without issue beyond about 2666 MHz.
ASUS Prime Z390-P ATX Motherboard
  • I'm able to use all 4 RAM slots. The fan control in BIOS is very flexible.
  • This board was used in a build with an i5 9600K and 3000MHz DDR4. The RAM slots are tight and works flawless.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Gigabyte Z390 UD Motherboard
  • Plenty of sata ports for expandibility and also enough usb plus a m.2 key.
  • All the ports were clearly-labelled, and even the slight bit of RGB lighting from the board is a nice touch.
  • Good budget board with all the ports that I need. Highly recommend.
  • I wish it had one or two more USB ports. Everything else is ok.
  • The USB ports died a week after install. Total disappointment with this motherboard.
ASUS Prime Z390-P ATX Motherboard
  • This board has two M.2 slots. That's a primary reason I picked it.
  • There are plenty of USB ports on the back panel and it works with the Sound Blaster Z pCIe card.
  • It has got 2 slots for M.2 SSDs, which is good for expansion.
  • Solid power delivery for entry level board, abundance of USB 3.x ports.
  • Would've been nice to have wireless connectivity included.

What customers say about "Features"
Gigabyte Z390 UD Motherboard
  • It was a joy building with the motherboard and also impressed with the build quality and features for a budget z390 mobo.
  • Bios is easy to navigate. Board itself is quite protected and durable.
  • There are on board graphics and sound if required.
  • The components are high quality, good slot arrangement, good features.
  • The audio output has a baseline static noise and louder interference from mouse and GPU activity.
ASUS Prime Z390-P ATX Motherboard
  • Setup was easy and ASUS's use of UEFI features to auto-preload the BIOS update software in to Windows is quite clever.
  • Just two rather than four SATA cables provide - fair enough really.
  • Easy to install and match with CPU, I now have a super fast PC to match my ultra broadband.
  • It does support RGB lighting and suits my gaming PC.
  • Comes with Realtek Gigabit network and basic Realtek ALC887 sound which has pretty decent sound.
