Depends on ones requirements. All Z390 boards on the market are more than capable of maxing out core frequency within the realms of ambient overclocking.

Look to specific features. For instance, the Formula XI is a fantastic addition to any custom water-cooling build.

Yes, all of the Maximus line is capable. Look at the feature sets I/O to determine which best suits your needs outside of overclocking.

The Gene is a very nice board that packs a lot of punch for its size...Suggest reading some reviews for both boards....Board available through Newegg via 3rd party seller in the UK
