    Whatever P&B is (I'm guessing processor and board), that motherboard isn't compatible with that processor as it's an AMD AM4 board and you are trying to use an Intel processor in it.

    The comparable Intel board is the Asus ROG Hero XI series.

    This one should work well with that CPU.

    sorry P&B refers to Processor and Board.

    Actually the main thing is I have already bought the 9900K and Graphic card 2080Ti but now I just need a compatible motherboard, Ram (looking for max mhz ram) and Power supply.
    Thanks for the recommendation I am looking into the also kindly can someone tell me will any motherboard that has the Z390 chipset be compatible with the 9900k or is there a specific one I need?

    I have notice that many motherboards don't have firewire port the thing is the sound card that I have only works through a firewire so this is something I also need to consider.

    I have other items that I connect through USB and the mother board only has 3/4 USB ports but I need around 6/7 ports and 2 firewires so what shall I do about this? In my opinion there mother board should have more ports and firewires! Kindly guide me, build my super PC.

    If you have six USB devices and two Firewire devices, Z390 is barely going to cut it - all of the USB ports, SATA ports, M.2 slots, and non-graphics PCIe slots share a single x4 uplink to the CPU. Populating every USB port and adding a dual port Firewire card may cause pretty poor behavior if you try to access everything at once.
    What is the intent of the system? A gaming rig may have very different requirements from, say, a digital audio workstation. If you still think Z390 is the way to go, the Maximus XI Apex is probably the king of memory frequency right now (it has a specialized 2-DIMM layout to achieve higher frequencies). It has enough USB ports, and you can populate the chipset x16 slot with a dual port Firewire card. (The Apex is overpriced, but the fact that you have a 9900K and a 2080 Ti suggests that you are interested in spending money).

    The Z390 TUF board have cut-down VRM sections that not sufficient to power a 9900k at boost clocks except in short bursts and other cut-down features like audio and ethernet chipsets. If you're dead-set on ASUS boards you would want one of the STRIX boards instead, although Gigabyte boards are generally acknowledged to have the better VRM layouts and featuresets of the available Z390 motherboards.

    Thanks for your reply, really it's a big thing for me to get the right mother board because I will be using it for the next five years and it's not something that's disposable.

    Actually I'm not bothered weather it's Asus or not I just want whatever board will give me the best performance. My dealer call and told board is available (Please see below) if I want but I am very confused please give me you honest opinion on the performance and compatibility. I honestly don't have any idea on what to get.

    Asus
    ROG MAXIMUS XI CODE
    TUF Z390-PRO GAMING
    ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    GIGABYTE
    Z390 GAMING SLI
    Z390 GAMING X

    Out of that list, I'd go with either the Asus Maximus XI Code, or if that's too expensive the Gigabyte Z380 Gaming X (only difference between this and the SLI board is dual-GPU compatibility which isn't worth the extra $ if you don't use it).

    You don't need the most expensive motherboard to run for 5 years.

    My X38 cost 300-400$ at the time I bought it, and it died almost 6 months after the 3 year warranty was up.

    My Z87 cost about 200$ when I bought it, and it's still running over 5 years in.

    My Z77 cost even less than 200$ brand new (except I bought it 2nd hand), and it's still running over 6 years in.

    **All had solid caps, so these should otherwise be held equal.

    For the firewire, you'll need a PCIE card for it.

    I like Asus's firmware, and their high end (Maximus Extreme, Maximus Apex, Rampage Extreme) have been solid boards since their conception. They are rather expensive, however, and the lesser models can be pretty bad - to add to the confusion, they did some shuffling of the names that put much of their lineup under the 'ROG' brand, so you really have to do your research to get the right board.

    The Apex is probably truest to the original ROG 'spirit' - a moderately-expensive board with features that are very noticeable under heavy overclocking. I wouldn't buy the Extreme unless it were heavily discounted - a $500+ Z390 board goes contrary to the whole point of Z390, and 1151 processors don't have enough PCIe lanes to make a real workstation out of - the x4 PCH connection doesn't have enough lanes to even feed a fast SSD and a 10Gb NIC at the same time. A lot of folks like the HERO and CODE boards, but at that price point, there are plenty of solid contenders and it is probably worth picking and choosing based on features, not brand.

    ASUS boards have traditionally been top of the line, but they kind of dropped the ball WRT VRMs on the Z390 boards except in their more expensive models. Gigabyte probably has the best VRMs for this generation, although you have to be careful with them as they like to cheap out with components and power stages on later board/GPU revisions. I've always bought revision 1 Gigabyte parts and had no problems whatsoever, although the second revision of my old Z68 board apparently had some atrocious problems with boot-looping. If you're buying at the really high-end, ASUS is probably your best bet, with the Gigabyte boards in the mid-range being a better buy. I'd put Asrock somewhere below Gigabyte, although they're the only manufacturer that I know of who added a separate disk controller to their midrange boards - most other vendors give you 6 SATA and maybe a NVME without needing to sacrifice SATA slots, where they threw in a third-party controller so you can use a couple more drives (probably at reduced performance, but for an archive HDD that hardly matters).

    They already told you their opinions on Asus motherboards...now you want their "personal opinion" on this specific model?

    So earlier (Feb 16th) you said you already bought it....now you're saying you didn't?

    I meant to say that I have decided on getting ASUS 2080TI I had spoken to someone about ordering it a little grammar error in my post, anyhow as you know its very costly that's why I keep asking about it.
    However now the choice that's in front of me are between Gigabyte 2080=8gb and Zotac 1080Ti
    How is Zotac company ?
