So, where would my X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming fall? Tier C or D? I don't see it there.

Tier B although it has bad VRM (only 4 phases and mediocre cooling)? Interesting. I thought that was some other ultra with better VRM.

the only thing you could really rank is the die, which is not that hard, but i think most people don't know which they have, so the tier list idea becomes useless.

 

I'm working on a memory guide with some others tho

looks at Z370-P motherboard

 

"You bring shame upon this household."

 

Although, for a Tier E board, I've managed to run my 8600K on 4.7GHz for the past few months, not to say it isn't one of the most basic boards one can buy, because I can't deny that.

Is that..

Hold on..

................

I've just realised the 8600k turbos to 4.3 default..

.........................................................................................................I run mine 5.1Ghz on the daily and push 5.4+ benchmarks

.............................never once did I consider checking what the basic boost was XD

Nice!

it technically is okay enough for it, but i recommend against buying one, because there's much and much better on the market. so if you want the nicer overclocks on it, you'll need a better board than it

But I don’t really have any problems with my 8600k in there on stock settings besides not being able to acess bios. I was just thinking it could break but it’s been working for a few months

no access to bios? you should ask asus about that part, because that's a pretty major problem

I was just talking CPUs are the same, Im on the EVGA Z370 Micro. Like the knowledge it natively only boosts to 4.3 shocked me

(All Z390) MSI MEG ACE, Aorus Ultra, Aorus Master, Maximus X Apex, XI Apex or other recommendations for me? Going to OC 9900K quite heavily, 32Gb 3600Mhz RAM, as well as 2080 Ti. Suggestions on which mobo to get? Nothing too expensive though.

You have this under Intel. Alpha isn't for x299, it's an AMD board.

 

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha is for AMD and Rampage VI Extreme Omega is for Intel.

 

https://rog.asus.com/articles/maximus-motherboards/introducing-the-rog-zenith-extreme-alpha-and-rampage-vi-extreme-omega-motherboards/

 

EDIT: ok, I see that you have the Zenith Extreme Alpha in AMD where it belongs, so just change the alpha under Intel to omega and everything is cool.
