  • Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz (5.0 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W BX80684I99900K
  • Cooler Master RR-212TR-16PR-R1 Hyper 212

I have no need for Wi-Fi
I use VR (Quest 2 with link) for PC VR.

Which motherboard do you suggest I use for this and do you see anything that is not compatible with my other parts?

Asus Tuf, Gigabyte Aorus, any of the upper grade Z390 boards will work just fine. The only reason to really get into the high grade boards like the MSI Godlike, Asus ROG Hero+, Gigabyte Master etc is if you seriously intend on pushing OC limits.

The MSI Z370 APro can handle a stock 9900k, even a little mild OC, but I'd not push it hard.

Your current MSI Z370 will work with an i9-9900K unless you want new features, but a Z390 is probably not worth the money unless you need to keep the board with the old build.

My current MSI Z370 has a problem so I need to change it and yes I would like to keep the rest of the build.
How can I tell if a bord is an upper-grade Z390 board?

Also, I do not need Wi-Fi
I forgot to mention that I use VR (Quest 2 with link) for PC VR.

Would an MSI Z390-A PRO, ASUS TUF Z390 or GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO be good?
I don't know why the Aorus is over 80$ more than the other two...
Any other MSI board that would be good for my setup?
