[Memory Express] $279.99 MSI MEG Z490I UNIFY Mini ITX Motherboard

All time low as far as i can tell
supports 11th Gen CPU as well but no PCIe 4.0
Praised amongst reviewers for its strong VRMs for overclocking

Keep any eye out for 10700k sales and it would pair really well with this

i prefer Intel at the moment despite AMD providing really good value.
I use itx systems and SFF PC's and managing thermal and power limits has been much more difficult on AMD than on Intel.
I find overclocking, undervolting etc a lot easier on intel chipsets.
I had a lot of ridiculous issues dealing with Ryzen 3700x - like certain bios settings disabling sleep function from windows...

in my opinion 10th gen Intel is better than 11th gen - i dont care for pcie 4.0
nothing i use would take advantage of pcie 4.0 including the 4k 100mbps footage from my Sony A73
and i dont buy components with a false hope that devs will provide support in future applications that dont exist yet
