Just bought one from amazon.co.uk for £375.
MEG ACE

I will buy a 10900K or 10900KF and the Intel Tunning Plan.

I have a Unify on the way plus a 10900K waiting. I understand the ACE and Unify PCB/VRM are identical (RGB and an additional LAN port for the ACE), so they should have identical overclocking capabilities.

Hi, that is correct, they should be almost identical under tge hood, the vrm cooler (plus 40mm fan) as well.
I still have to decide between the 10900K and the 10900KF.
I was hoping to see some better prices but I doubt they'll gonna go any lower than £500 real soon.

Nice buy Arrow0309!

Considering prices, i think that in the Intel Z490 high end motherboards arena's the MEG ACE and Unify are best buys because they have a very good VRM, balanced on-board equipment, good expansions possibilities and last but not least, they are aesthetically pleasing!

Hi Kk
Oh I love the way these two look, especially the ACE.
After the Z390 Ace and the X570 Ace, this one is perfect.
Let alone their price which is way more convenient then the ROG Maximus Z490 series.
Best buy.

Then you'll probably start before me, good overclocking!
