Easy build using this MB

Pros: this MB was simple to install and power-up
Config:
i7 Coffee Lake 6 Core CPU
32 GB Memory
2x 1TB SSD

The built in 7 Segment display makes guessing what went wrong a thing of the past. BIOS passed on first power-up.
Environmental controls in BIOS and online utility are much better than previous versions. Fan control is a real plus. I highly recommend this for anyone considering their next bare metal build.

Cons: None

Overall Review: In my opinion, Asus quality is great, and I would recommend looking closer of their product lineup.

Heat Sink Screw

Overall Review: Haven't had a chance to start my new build. Screws will not come out of the SSD heatsink. I returned one and the replacement has the same problem. I'm using the proper size screwdriver but they will not budge. I only hope I can finish my build before return period is up for all of my other components.

Not your run of the mill gaming board

Pros: ASUS WS Z390 is not a beginners board. It was perfect for my hybrid desktop/server aka workstation.
I am very satisfied with the quality of the board. The dual M.2 with heat sinks was a must for me.
Support for parallel GPU boards provides enterprise server like capabilities at consumer pricing.
The board supported all my components :-)

Cons: Review security alerts with regard to BIOS upgrades depending on your board; The WS Z390 was not impacted.
I would have appreciated the fine print about the 2nd M.2 slot being turned off if you use one of the S.2 slots being more clear in the fancy marketing website. It would have helped me better plan my style and type of ssd and disk drives.

Overall Review: Note: RGB AURA is really only accessible if you are running Windows10 or higher. You get a default sequence with other OS'.
It would be great to be able to set AURA from the BIOS..

I wish more boards were of this quality

Pros: Great layout. Good components. Runs cool. Heat sinks for M.2 drives look and perform well. DIMM and PCI slots are very tight and well constructed. You have to use a lot of force to get the ram installed.

Cons: Maybe wish it had wifi. But I don't really care that it doesn't because I was able to put in a really good card.

Overall Review: I am not a gamer. I use this board for heavy Adobe work. It works great. It was pleasant to build on, runs smooth and great. I have not had to update the bios. The following components worked on start up with no problems or bios updates needed.

Intel 9900K (not overclocked)
Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 (hits 74C max with cpu stress tests)
64GB Kingston HyperX 2666 RAM (I chose 2666 for reliablitly)
PNY Quadro P2000
Samsung 970 Pro M.2 512 GB (C drive)
Intel Optane 900P 240 GB (Adobe work drive)
WD 4 TB RED drives in Raid 1 for storage
ASUS PCE-AC88 Wifi Card (Very snappy internet performance)

I am very happy with this board so far.

Chose for Video Editing Workstation

Pros: -- PLX Chip allows using all (4) PCIe @ 8X and (1) @ 4X
-- Can combine GPU, Blackmagic HD capture card, 10G net, Hardware RAID, etc.
-- 8+2 Phase CPU power allows overclocking a 9900K to 5.0 stable
-- Crystal Sound 3 is good-enough for my sound editing/previewing needs
-- ASUS quality. My (3) 10 year-old Asus P6T6 w/oc'd Xeons are still running great!
-- Can flash bios directly from USB on startup...
-- Power & reset buttons on MB = handy for initial setup

Cons: -- Price. One of the most expensive LGA 1151 boards...
-- No bifurcation means I cannot place a (2 or 4) M.2 RAID on (1) PCIe…
-- Using the (2) onboard M.2 disables (2) SATA & (2) U.2
Limitation of 1151's lack of PCIe lanes, but thought PLX could help w/this
-- Thunderbolt ready, but not included
-- No onboard 10G network = wastes a PCIe & needs $100 card...
-- Needs another USB 3.0 front connector.
Fix was to add an extension that plugs into back USB 3.0...
Use this for my media card panel

Overall Review: The Asus WS Z390 Pro, 9900K, 32 DDR4, & H150i Cooler in existing case allowed me to literally double my 4K render speeds for around $1200. (Previous = Xeon 5660 @ 4ghz) Some proprietary single core software I use flies on the 9900K but is unstable & slower on Threadripper... Intel's LGA 2066 options are upgradeable & have more PCIe lanes, but are 2X the price for the same performance (on my apps) as the 9900K... When I upgrade my main editing rig, I keep the 2nd & 3rd best for importing video, etc. so I'll have this 9900K system for 10 years...

Overall a Great Motherboard for a Performant Workstation

Pros: - System is fast and responsive with i9-9900k, 64GB RAM and Nvidia Quadro P4000.
- Two PCIE slots simultaneously at x16 a feature that other Z390 boards are lacking.

Cons: - You will lose some SATA ports once more than one m.2/u.2 slots are occupied.
- No built-in wifi

Overall Review: I have been having the system running for about a month now. Initially I had system freeze-ups both in UEFI firmware and in Windows. Sometimes, even the reset button wasn't responding forcing a complete power cycling. However, since the BIOS/firmware update, I have not experienced any more freezing and the system seems pretty stable though I haven't tried OC of now yet.
Switching from dual Xeon motherboards (EVGA SR-2, Asus Z10PE-D8 WS and Asus Z10PE-D16 WS) to a single Intel processor system, I realized some limitations: Using two or more of the m.2/u.2 slots will result in losing some or most of the onboard SATA ports. On another note, considering the relatively high price tag (among the Z390 based motherboards), I would have expected built-in wifi. Some less expensive ones do have built-in wifi so why not this one?

Does support 9th gen processors with new BIOS update

Pros: It's a nice looking board, and after updating BIOS everything works fine. running i7-9700K and 32GB 3733MHz memory,.. vary happy with motherboard.

Cons: This motherboard should not have been released without BIOS updates, for 9th gen processors, I could not get board to post with i7-9700K when I first bought it.

For LGA 1151 this is about as good as it gets.

Pros: Excellent virtualization support with both lan chips having their own IOMMU groups (i219 and I210) . 1 ASMedia 3.1, 1 ASMedia 3.0, and the z390 chipset USB 3.1 controller all in different groups aswell. Solving the issue of hot plug USB devices in Unraid VMs

Due to the use of a 48 Lane PLX chip this board supports Quad x8 PCI-E lanes which makes it possible to have a GPU, an LSI Logic controller such as the LSI 9305-16i, 10Gb network card, and a Blackmagic decklink Quad 2 card all running at the same time. From a budget standpoint this really is the best your goona get without going to x299 or threadripper. Keep in mind that even though you have 32 PCIE lanes they have to share the bandwidth of the 16 lanes provided by coffee lake cpus. Running the configuration above I have not noticed bandwidth limitations however i am not maxing out the black magic card. Your results may very.

Cons: Only 1 internal USB 2.0 header, although not really a deal breaker.
IF using any m.2 devices you will loose 2 Sata ports dropping down the 6 usable to 4. Plan your freeNAS/Unraid server accordingly. I am using a LSI 9305-16i logic controller to achieve the storage capacity I needed so this issue does not effect me.
The U.2 ports do NOT support SFF-8643 (aka U.2 or mini SAS) to 4x SATA connector cables
ALSO if using M.2 media you will loose a U.2 port or if using both M.2 slots you will loose both U.2 ports, but again this is simply due to bandwidth limitations of LGA 1151 and its native 16 PCI-E lanes.
no ECC support but honestly if you need ECC your looking way in the wrong direction

Overall Review: Full Specs of my system:
i9-9900K 4.9ghz overclock stable at 1.18v (yea i didn't win the silicon lottery) reaching 80C under synthetic load
Asus WS Z390 Pro (VRM's are far superior on this board compared to the supermicro board which also has a PLX chip)
Noctua D15S cooler
Corsair LPX 4x 16GB 3200mhz
EVGA GTX 1080 TI
LSI 9305-16i attached to 12 IronWolf Pro 8tb drives
Onboard SATA attached to 4, Samsung 860 1tb SSDs
Blackmagic Decklink Quad 2 running 4 1080P60 streams.
Asus XG-C100C 10Gb NIC

All configured through Unraid 6 without so much as a single hiccup.

IMPORTANT I cannot confirm 9700k support since i have not tested it, and it is not listed as a compatible cpu.
8700k and 9900k both supported with BIOS 0401 although it originally shipped with 0201 and required a bios flash before the 9900k was supported

Hopefully this review helps save some of you lots of time researching and testing everything yourself.
