Z490 Gaming Motherboards - Z490 AORUS ELITE vs Z490 VISION G vs Z490 Prime-A

Hey!

I'm looking for a new motherboard for my i7-10700k gaming pc and i saw these 2 boards and i want to know are there any major differences? they look basically the same to me only different I/O
Am i right or am i missing something

https://www.gigabyte.com/Comparison/...pids=7256,7269

Or should i skip Gigabyte and go with a trusty Asus Z490-A Prime, i have a Z170-A Prime now but i read Asus really cheaped out on the VRM these days, atleast for the Z390 boards.

Hope you can help me pick a the best motherboard

Elite has worse audio 1200 (compared to 1220 on the other 2, but has bios flash back), and worse I/O than the other 2 like you've noticed.

Asus has more fan headers.

VRM wise, they're comparable (Asus didn't cheap out on this one), so pretty much your choice. I'd probably go for Asus because of more fan headers, and because I personally wouldn't need the 2 more USB 3.0 the vision has.

Though if u don't care for the extra fan headers, and like how the Vision G looks, go for the vision, it has the best VRM heatsink of the 3 (not by much, but still a bit).

Hey thanks for your fast answer man!

Two more questions hope you can help me with that

1. How good is Asus Multicore Enhancement or should i turn it off
2. And which one should i pick between the Asus Z490-A ROG STRIX or Asus Z490-A Prime

Thnx!

Np, for 1. not sure, it will depend on what gives you the best OC, check the overclocking 10900k page here or the forum, ask there, or make a 10700k topic and ask there, someone's guaranteed to have a similar Asus board and 10700k already, so they could tell you what worked for them and what didn't (though experience from someone with 10900k/10600k and similar Asus board should also be useful to you).

as For No.2, no point really, just finished watching Bullzoids z490 videos an hour ago and the only differences are that the ROG STRIX gets dedicated bios flashback button and port, and the Prime A gets more USB ports instead of bios flashback.

It only seems worth it to go for the ROG Strix if you really want the silver color aesthetics.
