Like the OP, I want to update my 5 year old 4th Gen Intel CPU with a i9-9900K.

I have built my last 2 systems with Asus motherboards, but there is quite a choice of Z390 motherboards. I was thinking of the Asus WS Z390 Pro, but would that be overkill? I have never really bothered with overclocking.

I would consider other brands as long as I can install an M2 SSD, a graphics card and my BM Intensity Pro 4K.

My existing Asus Z87 Pro motherboard has proved reliable, but what about MSI or Gigabyte MBs. Can anyone help me narrow the field a little?
