I'm upgrading my system just the ITX Motherboard and the Processor which will be a I9-10900K. but i cant decide on the MB i have been an Asrock fan for my last 4 builds but it seams like MSI might have the better board but im not sure, i think it comes down to the phases but i dont fully understand them. any thoughts would be very helpful.

I use the computer for Acad, 3d Modeling, Chief Architect, PDF editing & gaming WOW - RDR2

Ranking
1. MSI Z490 Unify (8+2 phase)
2. Asrock Z490 Phantom Gaming-itx/tb3 (6+3 phase)
3. Asus ROG Strix gaming (4+1 phase - twin)

You should check out this review from Optimum Tech. They compare all four boards. :smug:

The MSI and Gigabyte have the strongest VRMs and best CPU heatsink clearance. The Asrock is better for warm environments (active VRM cooling fans). The Asus is ideal if you'll be running two nVME drives.
