Well my wife's pc is close to on its last leg eight year old cpu/mobo. So will be taking my 10th gen i9, MSI Z490 Carbon and my Crucial Ballistix sport 3000mhz, a 1TB M.2, my EVGA CLC 280 putting it into her machine. 
I will be getting myself a 12th Gen i9, Gen4 m.2, yet the motherboard is where I am stumped.
Going back and forth between these two boards
MSI MPG Z690 Edge and the ASUS ROG STRIX z690-a, sadly there is not really an in-depth review on both boards. Pretty much some basic reviews, then other places opinions with going back and forth. Anyone got any input?

    Well guess I will go with the MSI MPG Z690 Edge, the ASUS is nice, but the whole lacking a digital audio port for the price, some of the bios issues I have heard about and some m.2 nvse or whatever drives not playing nice with the board. Then the dimm slots sometimes being doa on arrival. Was hoping to get some insight here guess none have really touched those two boards.

    It's too early to tell and no many are trying to buy new hardware without reviews since they are not being built well.
    Since you used MSI before im pretty sure their quality of motherboards have improved

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I've built a few PCs now with the MSI Gaming Carbon line.  Very easy to use BIOS.
