Hey, I was hoping you could help me choose a motherboard.

Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro VS Asus TUF Z390M Gaming

At first I selected the Asus one but then I figured the cooling system (Noctua NH-D15) is blocking some of the board components.
So I selected the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro.

My question is, which one's better?
Should I pick the Asus one and pick another the NH-D15S for cpu cooling, or pick the Gigabyte and keep the cooler?

Also, can the Asus board being small, break by the weight of the air cooler?

Thanks!

Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro , would be my choice. If installed correctly the ASUS board won't break by the weight of the cooler.
Why the Gigabyte one? Is it because of the VRM or something?

My worry is that I never had a gigabyte hardware and I mostly used Asus, so I'm not sure about quality.
