Will be buying a Z690 (DDR5) motherboard soon and have some questions.


1) Which of the following boards would you recommend for gaming, full overclocking options (not limited) and best overall. List your reasons:

- MSI Z690 DDR5 TOMAHAWK
- MSI Z690 DDR5 TORPEDO
- GIGABYTE AORUS PRO


2) I already have DDR5 6400mhz kits here and wondering if all the boards listed above can XMP at 6400mhz without any issues? Has anyone tested? Share your experiences.


3. Also has MSI added AVX512 yet when disabling e-cores?

The only comment I'd make is to remember DDR5 is new and it may be a bit before you get good support for higher clocked modules.
