Default Motherboard advice for i7-8700K

Can anybody advice me what motherboard (Z370) to buy for Coffe Lake i7-8700K new system

I want also install:
BM Intensity Pro 4K ................. ( 4x PCIe lines feeded from PCH, 3rd lower PCIe)
Samsung SSD 960 EVO ............ ( 4x PCIe lines ) (M.2 shares with some SATA on some boards, and kills them)

Graphic card .... MSI NVIDIA GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G
I the end I want as many free SATA as possible.

My suggestion:
- GIGABYTE Z370 HD3
- ASROCK Z370 Extreme4
- ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING

Download their user manuals and check is the easiest way to find out.

What he said. You can just check their specs online to know if they are compatible with your processor and graphics card.

Personally I have always preferred Gigabyte an I went for the one you have listed. I am setting up two systems - one for myself and one for someone else - and EDIUS has been working very well. Using a 256GB M.2 primary on one of the systems. Still testing but everything, including the Blackmagic Intensity pro 4K, is working well so far.

I'm using the Asus ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING motherboard with the Intel i7 8700k over clocked to 4.9GHZ Liquid Cooled. The board lets you use 2 M.2 SSD drives, One I use for the System drive and the other for a Video drive, this leaves you with 3 SATA ports for dvd drives etc. I added 2 more M.2 SSD drives using a PCIe x4 Adapter card for an additional Video & Animation storage drives. System runs great so far for 4k and HD editing. I use the BM Intensity Pro 4K card.

Adbear once wrote that: "The IP4K tends to work better when using bus lanes that go through the chipset rather than the CPU"

Is it true?
How it will affect the performance If I use the second 8x PCIe linked to CPU?

+1 for Gigabyte

Also have an Asus which is awful - often fails to start, fails overclock and forgets the boot order - absolute pain - never again!

I'm building a new system using Asus Prime Z370-A. Good value and good reviews and auto overclocking. Suggest a CPU water cooler.

Are you using the 8700K Intel Graphics acceleration with Edius? I understand 4K H.265 timeline performance is good and 4K H.264 even better. I'm building a similar PC for 4k editing and would be interested in you performance experience. Thanks

But is it possible to add 2 SSDs even with GIGABYTE Z370 HD3? I mean one (500GB) for OS and the other one (1TB) for video editing.

What RAM would you add precisely for those ASUS and GIGABYTE motherboards?

I know BM Intensity Pro 4K is enough good but I'd like to know if there is a card that works as in 4K as in HD but automatically, that is without making the switch manually.
