Best ASUS Intel motherboard for 192GB DDR5 memory

Hi all. What is the best ASUS motherboard for 192 GB DDR5 memory (2 DIMMs per channel, dual rank)? CPU is Intel 14th gen i7-14700K, and I'm Interested in both speed and stability. Is there any meaningful difference in the Z790 refresh boards (e.g. ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming II) versus the original Z790 boards with regards to 4-stick high capacity memory support? Are the most recent BIOS compatible with 192GB DDR5? There appears to be a lot of conflicting information online on whether 192GB is even supported, and if so, which motherboard/BIOS can stably support the highest speeds. Thanks in advance for any insights.

Currently, it is very difficult for any motherboard to be able to load a ddr5 kit up to the advertised level of 8000l bus. And if you want to run 2 kits (4 x ddr 5), it will not be possible to overclock. If you want to overclock and run at high speed, you should only run 2 bars. But it's also difficult to get up to the advertised speed for many reasons... But I think overclocking to a certain degree is probably still great with 192 gb ddr5. That's the information I learned in the past few days from the wise brothers in the forum
