So I got a deal on a core i7-10700KF and found the Gigabyte Z490 Gaming X AX for pretty inexpensive ($140) and decided to purchase it. I couldn't find any reviews but have never had a problem with gigabyte products. Since then I saw a review on hardware unboxed that says the vrm's on the board are pretty weak/poorly cooled and they recommended going with an Asus Prime Z490P or MSI z490A-pro. I don't plan to overclock initially as I'm coming from a i7-3770K. I can still return the gigabyte board as it hasn't been used yet and I'm just looking for some other opinions especially if you have or have used the board.

Reviews can generally be relied upon IMHO. Who needs more heat? You won't need to overclock that proc, it's more power than you will need for gaming for a very long while.
