Asus Rog Strix Z490 Gaming-E versus Asus Rog Maximus XII Hero Wifi

Which one is better for overclocking i9-10900K? Do I get some profit getting the second one which costs 150 euros extra?

I can only speak to the Maximus XII Hero...it was my first choice and has proven itself to be a rock-solid board with the 10900K.

Good for overclocking, I see... You are at 5.2 GHz.

Yup...very stable, and very easy to do the overclock.  10 physical cores at 5.2 really does carry the mail.

Really glad to hear it. It's sitting in its box on the floor along with the 10900K two feet from my right leg.

As I recall, overclocking it did require taking it out of the box.  😜

Huh... are you kidding? I wondered why it was so cool. 

The motherboard can stay in the box though, yes?

You do realise that if "great minds think alike" and we both made the same choices regarding CPU and motherboard, that we both have great minds.

Fact!
