I found a good price for these 2 boards.

  • Gigabyte at around $170 USD in local currency
  • $150 USD (again in local currency) for the Asrock
These are at the cheapest/cheaper end of the Z490 that's available locally. I have a limited budget hence looking for good/great value boards. There are other board in this price range. But these 2 boards have these advantages:
  • these 2 has a heatsink on VRMs on the edge of the board
  • these 2 also can with 1 M.2 heatsink
I did a net search and didn't find any review on both. I would appreciate it very much if you can share your experiences with either boards.

I plan to get a 10600k and do some "mild" (4.5-4.8 OC) paired with a AIO 360mm setup.

I haven't checked those boards out yet, but I would imagine with a 10600K, they'll both be fine. Just go with features need, looks, and price. :thup:
