Z390 Taichi Ultimate vs ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F

Can someone tell me what overclocks nicer.

I have Z390 Taichi Ultimate, but it's making coil noise, which kind of reduced over past couple of days, but I have Asrock Extreme4 z390 / Asrock Taichi Ultimate z390 / MSI MPG Z390 /ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F coming to me tomorrow.

Asrock Extreme4 z390 as well, which is neck to neck with Taichi Ultimate

I watched Gamer's Nexxus already about VRMs, but in your own experience, what would you suggest out of these 4.

Processor is 9900k overclocked to around 5.0, MAYBE 5.2, but I think 5.0 is more than enough for me.

My choices between:
Asrock Extreme4 z390
Asrock Taichi Ultimate z390
MSI MPG Z390
ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F

I will have all 4 motherboards on hand tomorrow. Any input is appreciated.

Taichi has much better VRMs than Extreme 4. My Z390 Taichi overclocks my 9700k just fine at 5.1GHz. No coil whine at all, in fact my system is very quiet.

CPU offset voltage of -25mv, runs VRVout 1.240-1.313V on full AVX load, 1.225-1.275V on non-AVX load

I will be getting rid of Taichi because of coil whine. So I need an advice between other boards.

I like the Taichi best of those choices but the Extreme4 is good as well.

Taichi is a nice board, but I have a few gripes with it. They got rid of PCIE x1 slot below 2nd PCIE x16, for some reason, but I use firewire card and it needs to be there. So I bought an extension/riser for x1, and will see if it will work.

What I don't like about Taichi is the high pitched vrm coil whine that makes my head hurt, it's not soft, but very sharp.

VRM on Extreme4 has coil whine too, but it's much more gentle and lower frequency, where it doesn't hurt my ears/head. I think I will keep that.

I tried asus and msi boards today, and they all have LOUD vrm coil whine. Extreme4 wins by default, I think. Unless I change my mind in next couple of days and keep the Taichi.

Getting a power strip that is protected against RF and Electromagnetic signal, will see if it helps the situation with VRM coil whine.

You are the first person I have ever heard of reporting coil whine on a motherboard. Unusual, so that power strip sounds like a good start.

Ya, I have not experienced coil whine on a motherboard. Titan RTX, on the other hand...

You are the first person on the tech forum that said he never heard anyone reporting coil whine on motherboard

Seriously though, no joking, forums are flooded with those questions, from Toms hardware to Reddit.
It's such a common issue, just like PSU coil whine, just like GPU coil whine.

GPU coil whine for me is only in games, so it's not so bad, but coil whine on motherboard is a no go for me.

I would go Asus z390-f just because Asus seems to be the least buggy board manufacturer around. I ditched Asus because of the VRM layout, went z390 Taichi on a batch of 8086k builds and was not too happy with the memory overclocking (launch BIOS so maybe that was part of it), then went Gigabyte z390 ultra on a few 9900k builds and hate the Gigabyte dual bios feature plus, had client builds switch to BIOS B upon first boot so had to email them their profiles again, I wont try MSI because of past experience with boards failing (sure maybe better now) so back to Asus. I built about 70 builds with the 8086k at 5ghz on the z370-a prime with zero issues, no RMA and that is a board many here would say was a bad choice to do that kind of OC. I am switching to the z390-f for my 9900k builds expecting to love the experience and wish I never left Asus.

Tested all boards, and they all had horrible vrm coil whine, but not ASROCK Extreme4, but BIOS has some quirks (to say the least)
