Hi everyone,
Im going to build a mini itx 12900k setup. As you know, there is not a great choice of motherboards in itx form factor. The best by price looks to be the https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z690-i-gaming-wifi-model/ .. and there are a number of reviews on this one. However MSI have also released a high end board: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MEG-Z690I-UNIFY .. but can't find anything on this at the moment, though it is priced similar to the Asus. So wondered if anyone had a view on it, and a comparison between the two.
Thanks for any help.
