which x299 motherboard for i9-10920x?
Hi everyone, I would like some advice for purchases.
I'm not sure which motherboard to combine with a 10940X / 10920X
Asus ROG Strix gaming-II
MSI x299 Creator (not MEG Creation)
Gigabyte Aorus Master x299x
or an "old" mobo like the Asus Prime X299-DELUXE II (I didn't understand if it can manage the 48 lanes and 256GB of RAM with only the BIOS update instead of the "refresh" cards above)
The features I'm looking for are:
stability (my PC is turned on H24)
avoid throttling problems on VRM or CPU (often I do encoding / transcoding or other CPU intensive activities for several hours or even days)
overclocking as far as possible (I've been using a 4.5GHz i7-4820K for 5 years now with zero problems)
fan control depending on the load (I like the idea of idle fan stop on Asus and Gigabyte. is it also present on the MSI?)
last, but not least, reliability: today I am using an Asrock after years and years of Asus Mobos and, while the latter are still 12 years apart, my Asrock x79 has already lost 2 USB 3 and 4 SATA ports that give errors on errors, forcing me to keep detached two discs on the 7 normally connected and the BluRay burner
Thanks a lot for any help / suggestion
