    Urgent! Whats a good motherboard these days?

    Cant seem to isolate the issue with my Asus X99 rig so time to bite the bullet.  Whats a good motherboard these days?  Needs thunderbolt and a nice fast Intel CPU.  I guess my days of 4 x HDD's in RAID 10 are over so a few slots for M2 PCIE 4 would be good. 2TB for £200 - faster and cheaper than HDD :-)

    Symphony 2018.12.10, Blackmagic Intensity Pro 11.1 (unsatisfactory in full res UHD though for client monitor), WIN 10 on 2500Mbps M.2 SSD, Nvidia Quadro K4200, Asus X99-A Mobo, i7 5820K 4.0 GHz Hex core mildly overclocked CPU, 32Gb 2800 Mhz RAM, WD Black 8Tb RAID10 array @ 450Mbs

    Intel z690 chipset + Raptor Lake.

    Best mobos are usually the gaming kind like Asus ROG, Gigabyte Aorus, MSI MEG, etc.


    I just rebuilt my home PC

    ASUS ROG Strix Z690-G

    Intel 13900

    Samsung 980 Pro 2TB

    128 GB of RAM

    Gigabyte Aorus 3080ti Waterforce

    NZXT Z53 CPU cooler


    It is built like a gamers but the performance are top-end for productivity and video production.
