I know you can't overclock the CPU with a B760 mobo, I asked if it is worth to overclock this exact CPU, therefor, if its worth to go for a Z690 motherboard instead of a B760 one

It won't have a ton of headroom, though Z690/Z790 boards have other benefits like easier undervolting, so unless it's a massive price difference I'd try to go for the Z- series board if possible.

In my rather unscientific method of just browsing PCPartPicker for boards, the Z790 D DDR4 or Z790 UD should be about the same price and is a bit better depending on whether you want DDR4 or 5. 

Hello!
I just got a 14600KF and I was searching for a new motherboard and i have a few questions.
1. Is it worth to overclock this procesor or are the boost speeds enough? if they are enough is a B760 enough for this CPU or i should still run a Z seriers motherboard?
2. Which one would you choose:
B760:ASRock B760 Pro RSD4
Z690: ASRock Z690 PG RIPTIDE/ASRock Z690 PRO RS
or if you have any better sugetions I would love to hear them!
Thanks in advance!

I don't believe B series chipsets support overclocking, so you'd want to go with a Z series. Z690 vs Z790 has some minor advantages, nothing I would pay substantially more for. If there's a decent Z790 motherboard close by in price, I'd elect for that.

Only motherboards with a Z based chipset allows for full overclocking.

If you find one of the few boards with an external clock gen, you can overclock on B- series boards. They're just so rare that practically they don't exist, it's basically only the B760M PG Riptide that's the exception to this (other boards exist, though they don't really seem to be in production anymore).

If it's just between those, I'd go for the Riptide, though what is your budget and where are you shopping for boards? Odds are you can get something a lot better for the price since none of those boards are particularly good.

Sure, there's a few niche B760 motherboards that support overclocking, but the B760 chipset doesn't appear to support overclocking.

ASRock Z690 Pro RS LGA 1700 (14th,13th,12th Gen) DDR4 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com Looks like its the minimum for a decent board.

 

ASRock Z690 EXTREME LGA 1700 (14th,13th,12th Gen) DDR4 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com would be worth it to me. I'm a sucker for dual LAN motherboards though. $20 more isn't too bad at this price point.
