Looking into getting the Gigabyte Z790 UD AC which came out at the end of Oct. 2022, however there have been no professional reviews and barely any user reviews on it so far. Personally I do not like to go on trusting only the specs. I am not looking for a high-end motherboard, but I'm just looking for something reliable with a price under $300 and not looking to really overclock. Any thoughts and recommendations would be appreciated.

Planned Build:
I7 13700K
Gigabyte Z790 UD AC
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB VENTUS (might go 3080)
Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB)

Cooler Master MWE gold 850 v2

CORSAIR iCUE H100i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler
CORSAIR 4000D AIRFLOW
Noctua NF-F12 Case Fans
Solidigm P41 Plus 2TB

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Two boards in this review show up to be at or below $300;

IMHO, you should invest in a high quality VRM designed board meaning upping the budget if you're interested in going the 13th Gen Intel route.

Oh wow, what a fast reply lol, thank you! So should I go above 16+1+1 or do you think I can get away with that? Also, thank you so much for the link.
