    Should i get the z390 over z370 same price ?
    What is the main difference ?
  3. The z390 is little more than a way for people to tell what boards have been designed with the more extreme end of the '9th-gen' CPUs in mind. It is basically a more expensive z370.

    Typically, Z390 is a high end platform that supersedes the z370. However the z370 can in some cases (depending on BIOS level and manufacturing support) also support the 9th generation Intel CPU.

    There is very little difference between z370 and z390 from a features perspective, however some z390 boards tend to have an improved power delivery system to support the 9th gen Intel CPU's.

    Z390 will have better voltage regulation capabilities to support 8 core 9th gen intel processors.
    If you can get one at the same price as Z370 that is good.

    Second question: ( i am building a pc)
    Is that make sense if i bought i7 8700 with a mobo 9th generation?
    So i will have advantage after 4 5 years upgradibg to i9 and start OC ..
    Because i am not gonna oc now .
    Will i7 8700 be weak after 4 5 years ?

    Yes, that mobo supports a 9900K, but only as long as it has an up to date BIOS.

    What do you mean 9th generation mobo? In 4-5 years a 9900k will be 4-5 years old, by then it'd probably make sense to just a new mobo and CPU.
