Are there any advantages or disadvantages (ignoring money) in getting a ROG v Prime Asus Mobo for a new PRIMARILY Cubase rig, which will be used for gaming too.

On paper the spec is almost identical.

Yeah, that's what I ordered. Seems like the better choice for reliability.

And I note that Scan Computers who make music PC's, and have access to pretty much anything from their parts list, choose Prime for their music PC's.

I've also build a DAW setup around the Asus z370-a prime. I just love Asus' BIOS layout and structure. The board is nice, and I haven't really stumbled across any bigger problems. The DPC latency is pretty low out of the box, about 10-50 microseconds, with a few peaks about 150 microseconds from directx and and the OS kernel. If you disable the cpu's power status (c-states) in BIOS, the DPC latency is down to about 0-20 microseconds here, with no peaks.

I'm using a RME Raydat I/O card to my converters.
