Hi, I'm building a PC and I'm looking for a good motherboard that will allow for good overclocking. The CPU that I will be using is i9 9900k.

The options I could find are:
Asus ROG Strix z390-e Gaming
Gigabyte z390 Aorus Pro

As far as I understand, Gigabyte has the better boards with the z390 chipset as far as VRM goes.

I also found out that boards don't support all RAM models. For example I chose
HyperX FURY Black 2x8GB DDR4 3466MHz CL16 Kit - which is HX434C16FB3K2/16.
In the Aorus Pro's QVL file that kit is not listed.
Does that mean that the kit won't work with this board?

Thanks!

What about a Asus Z390-A/H10? You get Intel Nvme 512 GB drive bundled in the package .
