Most Favorable Review

Fantastically powerful CPU

Intel Core i9-12900K - Core i9 12th Gen Alder Lake 16-Core (8P+8E) 3.2 GHz LGA 1700 125W Intel UHD Graphics 770 Desktop Processor - BX8071512900K

Pros: Handles virtualization well. I have been using it to simulate a datacenter network topology. The price isn't terrible for what you get.

Cons: Hard to think of any.

Overall Review: I'd totally recommend this part.

Good mainboard, but not perfect.

ASUS Prime Z690-A LGA 1700 Intel 12th ATX Motherboard- 16+1 DrMOS, PCIe 5.0, DDR5, 4x M.2, Intel 2.5 Gb LAN, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Front Panel Type-C, Thunderbolt 4, Aura Sync RGB Lighting

Pros: Great platform that does almost everything an enthusiast might need.

Cons: AuraSync is fussy. Needed special driver from Asus for the OS to see the NVME RAID-5 volume.

Overall Review: I would recommend it with the aforementioned caveats.
