MSI MEG Creation or Gigabyte Aorus Extreme For TR2

Hello all,

I have an upcoming build regarding TR2. I will be going with the 2990WX. I have watched and read some fantastic reviews regarding the MSI MEG Creation for TR2, it looks like an incredible board. However I wanted to know what we (you guys) thought about the Gigabyte Aorus Extreme for TR2. The MSI Meg Creation has 19 Phases, this is actually 8 on doubler so far as the review has indicated. The Gigabyte Aorus extreme states 10+3 phases, but other than that I do not know much about the phase configuration for that board as I am struggling to find information on it. I am also a little bit of a noob so far as phase go.

Both these boards are like for like in mainly everything, but I want to make sure I have the best and most stable power delivery for the CPU as it is a beast especially when sitting at an all core OC.

In all honesty I am only bothered by the power delivery of these boards, looks and other features are secondary.

Thanks in advance for any wisdom.
