    ASUS STRIX Z390-E reviews

    Republic of Gamers Strix Z390-E Gaming LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Board works great. Everything works great.  Only complaint is the description of connections on black board is difficult to read.  Letter are in dark gray.  Should be in a better contrasting color.
