Hey, I am looking for some advice on a new Z390 MB. I currently have the ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming MB but it's not very good for overclocking. I think I need a MB with 8-pin EPS +4-pin. In addition, I currently have a 9600K and have run all the Unigine benchmarks at 5GHz. Unfortunately I cannot get through the CPU part of 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme. So I would like to try a different MB. I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Did you try increasing the core voltage. I see folks running 5.0GHz with i9 9900k on ROG Strix Z390-E.

Hey, thanks. I did increase the core voltage. I can run every benchmark at 4.9GHz with 1.359V all day long, it's very stable. As soon as I bump it up to 5GHz, she needs over 1.4V to be stable. I think I might "upgrade" to the 9700K along with a new MB purchase. Thanks!

You just lost the silicon lottery. I can run 5.0 with i5 8600k at 1.296 prime95 FMA3 on a 4 phase $120.00 Gigabyte Z370 HD3.

So I have a Asus STRIX Z370-E motherboard and I'm thinking about switching to the i9-9900k. Would I see a significant performance hit on watercooling? With it hitting 5.0ghz I probably won't overclock it much, except to bench it once and awhile. Or would I be better off just switching the MB to z390 as well?

It is easy to change the processor. So give the Asus STRIX Z370-E a try with the i9-9900k first and see if you like it. If you don't pick up a GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ELITE.

I was thinking of purchasing the ASUS Maximus XI Code board for a new PC build.( In my research it seems the Gigabyte AORUS ultra board is a better choice ? )

I wanted to confirm that it is possible to install the ASUS AREION 10G card or the Asus XG-C100C 10GB Base-T PCIe Network Adapter which need a PCI E x 4 slot in the top most PCI E slot i.e the one above the first GPU slot ?

I plan on using both m.2 slots on this board - I think this means i lose the use of one of the SATA ports ? No 2 I think ?

Cheers

I did just wanted to confirm - not exactly easy to understand reading the manual

with regards to top PCIe slot it mentions its PCIe x 1 in manual - does this mean its a x1 or PCIe slot no 1 ?

In the Expansion slots section of the specs on ASUS website it mentions

Socket 1151 for 9th / 8th Gen Intel® Core™, Pentium® Gold and Celeron® processors
2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16, x8/x8, or x8/x4+x4)
Intel® Z390 Chipset
1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 (max at x4 mode) *
1 x PCIe 3.0 x16

but in the Manual

it says this



hence my confusion

I would like to get a 10G ethernet card which requires a PCI e x4 spec slot and was looking at installing it in the top slots above the first GPU PCIe slot ?

With regards to the m.2 question i have - I would like to install a Samsung 970pro and a 960 Pro m.2 drive on this board - one to boot from and another as a games drive - both 2280 sized

the manual mentions this



so installing both on this board I will lose SATA port 2 by my understanding ?
