Hi, I'm looking getting a i9-9900k.   I really like the Gigabyte Z390 Designare because of the cost and the included Thunderbolt 3 ports which I need.   I rather not but an add-on card.  The only concern is that it has 12+1 Phases Digital VRM while the higher-end models have 16+1 Phases Digital VRM.   I'm not looking to do much overclocking but I would like the CPU at least hit the 5Ghz boost without an issue.   Do you think this motherboard will be ok with the CPU?   Thanks!

Well... not entirely true. Some boards have much better components used than others.

 

having good vrm cooling on the board is important when overclocking and some boards don’t overclock as wel as others.

Thats a bad generalization. There are bad Z390 boards.

 

The designare is one of the best motherboards made for Z390, you'll be more than fine with a 9900k.

Wouldn't be a problem with his workload tho. Most people don't run Prime95 all day.

There are plenty of workloads that put out heat like Small FFT's on P95. We also don't know his workload other than he intends to OC a very power hungry chip to 5GHz. The designare is a fantastic board for this, though the MEG Godlike is better.

He wants to have the Turbo Boost on 5Ghz or did I misread it?

You did, he plans on OC'ing all cores to 5GHz, the single core max turbo. That actually ups the wattage required quite a bit.
