If you needed to pick one best overall motherboard for the Intel Core i7-11700K, we'd recommend going with the ASUS ROG Strix Z590-E Gaming. It's one of the best Intel Z590 motherboards, but it's also priced competitively, packing plenty of features at a reasonable price.

The mid-tower isn't the only form factor for building capable systems. If you wanted to build a PC that's a little more unique, the MSI MEG Z590I UNIFY will fit inside the more compact PC cases that can also handle the best graphics card. This board rocks the same chipset as our top Intel recommendations but loses a few features because of size restrictions.
