Here it is, the last motherboard review you will see from [H]ard|OCP as the sun sets on another review site for Kyle has chosen to join the dark side. The ASUS PRIME Z390-A has a rather unique looking silkscreen pattern but RGB lovers will find the placement of the glowy bits unfortunate. At $183 currently on Amazon it sits in the middle of the Z390 family as far as pricing, and that does mean it lacks some of the fancier features offered by flagship class motherboards. If stability, decent overclocking and a bargain price matter more to you than wireless connectivity and a well developed case of RGB-itis then this last review from [H] is well worth a look.
"Sometimes less is more. We typically work with a lot of motherboards that fall into the more is more category and some that have a high price that can’t easily be justified by most people. The ASUS PRIME Z390-A seems to lean towards less is more. On paper the Z390-A seems to have a lot going for it and is light on fluff. How does it stack up? "
