I am gonna pair it with a i5-9600k and a rtx 2070.
I am thinking between Asus Tuf z390-pro gaming or Asus Prime z390-a.

What do you mean snake oil.
Yeah i know but i wanna stick to intel
by snake oil, I mean, theyre useless
lets say between the 2 boards you showed

both are capable of overclocking
both have the same or close to the same amount of pcie or m.2 or sata ports
or whatever

the only things that may differ them is maybe a better vrm setup (which honestly isn't a big deal)
maybe dual bios which is actually really important but im pretty sure both have them
and like.. idk, reinforced pcie slots? which do like.. nothing?

buy the cheaper of the 2

hm... honestly expensive mobos are snake oil

you should buy the cheapest board that fits your needs
also amd is a better option right now (even for gaming)
not an amd fanboy just pointing it out
