What motherboard for a mATX build?

Hello.

I am about to build my first pc, and I really love the Corsair 280x white, which is a mATX case, however, I have some issues finding a suitable motherboard for it. Does anyone have some to recommend, preferably white-ish or gray, but not a must. I would love to hear some pros and cons.

(I am currently planning to use the Asus prime z390m plus, and I would like to hear your opinions on that as well.(if you have any)

You could make it cheaper.

That ASUS board looks very nice, but isn't available.

The prime varies in regards to its availability. You can get the ASUS TUF Z390M-Pro Gaming (Wi-Fi) currently online and it is a solid choice for a 9600K even if overclocked.
