Maximus XI Apex vs Extreme vs Code??

I've decided to upgrade my rig....re-purpsoe my old one for server stuff...

I've narrowed my motherboard to the 3 in the title......

Planned use is for Video editing, astrophotography stacking /editing, and gaming

Rest of the system:

i9-9900K or 9700??
Dark Rock Pro 4
GSkill Trident Z - 32GB total
860 Evo 4TB x2
WD Black NVMe 1TB
RTX 2070 (Strix OC?) - upgrade from GTX 1070
Pioneer BDR-2209
Cosair 450D Case

Appreciate the suggestion / change to the items and pro /cons of the motherboards.....

Price isn't an issue for me, yea lucky me, i can get the Apex for 329, Extreme for 500, Code for 409 (Euros...)

Want and can afford a killer system...

9900k and Code, you will need more than 32GB of RAM too. I'd wait for 2070 Super too, it will finally exceed 1080Ti level, according to recent leaks.

Thanks - any suggestions on RAM? I'm assuming by bumping up to 64GB i'll have to drop speed....

You should be perfectly fine with Trident Z 4x16GB 3600MHz CL17.

They do have better VRM and a "bit" more *****y bios, else they just differ in peripherals you most likely don't care about. All Z390 mobos can go up to 128GB - even Z390-A Pro from MSI, which is as basic as it can be.

Get a Kryonaut instead of MasterGel, consider getting a 750W Gold SeaSonic unit (more cost - effective than current choice) and stronger (bigger) AiO or a DIY waterkit from Alphacool. The latterbis a much better choice. RTX2070 Super is 10% better and at the same cost so keep an eye on it.

Kryonaut is a lot thicker and harder to spread then Mastergel Maker Nano and it perfoms even better as the result, most comparison charts show that. I swear by the Mastergel.
