Im building a pc with the new i5 8th generation, and i dont know which motherboard im going to, but in my budget of max max 200, i saw the MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon(160$) and Asus PRIME Z370-A(180$)
If you know other motherboard i could go to, would be great. (the MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon is out of the game because it is out of stock, unfortunetly)
Thanks for any help

I went through the same question about Z370 chipsets. I went with the Prime Z370-A but simply because i don't like MSI products, it was just a matter of personal taste. But The MSI is cheaper.

What i can tell you about the Asus is that it misses 1 or 2 more fan plugs, but it has a quite nice m.2 heatsink. i'm also pretty cool with asus's BIOS. i could install w10 with an usb key just by plugging it where some other MB need some tweakings.
