Overall Review: I bought the ASUS Prime Z690-A with a G.Skill 5600 4040C combo from Newegg. The motherboard doesn't seem to support the RAM and it's not on the QVL (lots of G.Skill RAM but not this particular model for some reason). It's possible it might support the RAM after a motherboard upgrade, but you can't upgrade the motherboard without RAM. There's no bios flashback and there no error code numbers or even beeps, just a Q-LED that lights up "DRAM". Buyer beware and beware of getting this with any combo at Newegg.
