9900k: Best motherboard?

Lived

I have bought a 9900K with a Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI mobo that I will be using with 32GB Corsair ramsticks (2x16). I have not built the computer yet. But after reading about Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI on different forums; its ram problems, high voltage out of stock that can go up to  1.4/1.5 volt  and how unstable it is I have big doubts about it. I will be using some heavy programs with my pc that will be using a lot of ram and processing power so I need it to be stable 24/7. I will not overclock my cpu but my ram must be able to work at 3200Mhz XMP. I just need a good computer that simply works as it should after I build it. I have built before so that is no problem but I suck at tweaking in bios.

 

So my question is: I just need a good motherboard that simply works and can handle a lot of workloads, Which one should I buy?

 

Ps. Sorry for my english, it´s not my main language.

the Aorus Pro is good itself. Just don't use auto voltage. Again, you can fix stupid auto settings, you can't improve inferior hardware.

You got the best motherboard for a 9900k As the Asus side has vrm woes and the Aorus is top of the line VRM quality and low heat allowing for massive overclocks.  The 9900k will go to 5Ghz with turbo on.  Just make sure to a good cooler like a Noctua DH-15 which is actually the best air cooler on the market.  212 Evo is good as well.

Asus Sabertooth x79 / 4930k @ 4500 @ 1.408v / Gigabyte WF 2080 RTX / Corsair VG 64GB @ 1866 & AX1600i & H115i Pro @ 2x Noctua NF-A14 / Carbide 330r Blackout

The EVGA z390 Dark overclocks like a beast.  Stability testing my 9900k right now:  5.1GHz @ 1.30v and ram at 4200MHz 17-17-17-37 right now.  It already passed 4 hours of OCCT, and hour of Real Bench, and an hour of "Ram Test".

After looking up some more is it not Aorus Master that have good VRM? Actually have two coolers at the moment a 360 AIO from Corsair and Noctua D15s that I have used for a long time. When everything is working properly I think I will change to the D15s because its a lot more safe.

Is it any easy guide I can use if I just want to lower voltage on the cpu in a safe way and nothing else. I have seen some on youtube but they are to complicated. I just want an easy-voltage-lower-noob-guide for the aorus pro ;).

Seems lika a amazing board but sadly is EVGA mobos (and also asrock) nearly impossible to get in my country and if I should order one from USA the shipping cost would be very high.  

 

Ps. Thanks a lot for all the answers, really means much to me.
