Good budget z590 Motherboard
Pros: - No issues running motherboard with 10th gen.- Fan header placement is good and able to route cables with no issues.- Quality build and packaging. Easy to build in with clear labeling.- Includes 8+4 CPU power connector. It can be ran with single 8 pin. 4 pin is optional for higher OC.- Includes Post-Error LEDs.- Easy upgrade path with m.2 wifi slot if required in the future.
Cons: - m2_1 is only compatible with 11th gen processor. If running m2_2, drive can run warm sitting behind the graphics card. The included m.2 heat sink can be installed in m2_2 which can help.
Overall Review: [This review for ASRock review rebate program.]Motherboard worked out of the box with no issues. Bios was able to automatically detect XMPP profile and ran at proper speeds. Overall this is a great entry z590 motherboard that provides overclocking functionalities. If your not trying to aim for the highest overclock, this board provides the best bang for the buck, especially with the rebate promo.
