    I am currently running a 4790k on an existing custom wc loop with a 3090 bundled in non-wc until I upgrade the cpu /mb/ram etc. (I'm super lazy and just haven't bothered to mess about getting a GPU block until I am forced to redo the whole loop).

    The aim is to have it all wc.

    Trying to decipher motherboards seems like mandarin chinese to me at the best of times, add in a custom loop and it just gets more complicated.
    No-one wants to have to be adding seperate blocks for chipsets + vrms if it can be avoided.

    Do I just choose a board that has EK support with their monoblocks ? or are there other alternatives ?

    What features do you absolutely need on a new motherboard?

    For me ASUS DARK HERO is it , DOCS is made for the 5950x , best of both worlds , OC and single thread performance

    Aorus Extreme is the best x570 board with no fan. It would be a nice pair to a best zen3 cpu.

    I'm using Asus Dark Hero for my 5950x, mostly because of the great bios support from Shamino :)

    Thx to all for suggestions.
    From previous reading I was aware of the Dark Hero board, looks like that's the one for me.
