well, x470 boards are the best for that.

Asrock: fatal1ty, taichi, taichi ultimate

Gigabyte: aorus ultra, aorus gaming

MSI: gaming pro, gaming plus, gaming pro carbon, m7

Asus: Crosshair, ROG STRIX -F

 

some b450 boards are good too, like the fatal1ty, the tomahawk or pro4 (atx)

Think Gigabyte’s boards have bad vrms, not good for OC

What? Gigabyte bad vrms? The company that makes THE best z390 boards have bad vrms? Believe me, it doesn't work that way.

It's actually true to some point. They made some mistakes with the 300 series, I thought bad capacitors or something. If you want a msi mobo, you should get 400 series
