In the end I bought:
  • processor:Intel i9-9900K
  • MB: ASRock Z390 Taichi
  • RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4, 3GHz
  • PSU: Corsair RM850x
  • SSD: 1x500GB + 1x2TB Samsung EVO
  • Liquid Cooling: Fractal design Celsius S24
  • GPU: MSI GTX 1660 6GB DDR5

Well beyond my initial budget (as usual). I'm not a pro, just an enthusiast home editor.
The whole system is very unstable. No way to boot with default parameters.
Checking ASRock forums I see their current BIOS impl. is a nightmare. I tried all their tips & tricks but 20% of the times the machine doesn't boot or restart. RAM is on MB VCL. It's not my first or last build. I'm not even trying to OC but just getting a stable default configuration but it seem that ATM it's not possible to get a stable build with default parameters. In 8 months AsRock released an endless list of BIOS versions. My bad I did not check user's feedback before buying.

IMHO beware from ASRock Z390 MB right now

Holy Amazon, I asked RMA for MB and RAM (just in case). I'll see what happen with an ASUS MB.
