I also agree with this use case. Multi tasker can be Too early to tell mate as they are all very new boards, but if we can base off past history, gene would produce better results. Compare the actual technical aspects of power delivery on both boards and compare the specific overclocking features/settings in the bios and you will find the gene is better for that. Really any of the decent top tier boards can do 5, what you really should be focusing on is: - is your cooling up to scratch? - expect the silicon lottery. 1. 24/7 at 5ghz on all cores is going to need more than a simple AIO, custom cooling all the way. If my CPU goes over 50 Deg on a hot day then that is too hot for me. 2. Silicon lottery is just that, a lottery, hope for your sake you win it.
