Pros: For the price works well, I have it paired with a 9600k so no power issues. I have the 9600k at 5 GHz with this board. Also applies the XMP profile with no issues.
Cons: ASRock BIOs is a little tricky to navigate but not bad once you're used to it.
Overall Review: With a 9700k or 9900k and overclocking you may need a more expensive board to handle the power requirements.
The mATX version may be better for you if you want the option of using smaller cases

Pros: 10 gigabit networking
Plenty of fan headers
Cons: You cannot use the third m.2 slot for RAID. In the manual and on the product page they have a video showing triple m.2 RAID but those were taken with their z270 board. For some reason they did not implement the feature on x299. I have contacted support and they said this was working as intended so don't expect a BIOs update to fix it.
Overall Review: I would like proper m.2 support but there are no other options for built-in 10 gig currently and the board is priced pretty well even for 2x m.2
