Being the latest flagship and limited motherboard, the Z490 AQUA has been pleased all gamers and PC enthusiasts since its announcement. The cutting edge performance and design of Z490 AQUA push Intel 10th Gen Core CPU to 4 global first place benchmark results. The well-known overclocker, Splave achieves four Global First Places with Z490 AQUA and Intel Core i9-10900KF CPU. Our platform completed the wPrime 1024M benchmark in 35.562 seconds, which wins the Global First Place. Find the HWBot submission here.

On the GPUPI for CPU benchmark, best record is one minute and 25.015 seconds, made by using Z490 AQUA with Intel Core i9-10900KF. (Check new record here on HWBot). Splave takes a huge lead by scoring 9108 marks on Intel Core i9-10900KF with the ASRock Z490 AQUA, and captured the 1st place in the Intel 10th Gen Core CPU category (HWBot submission). In conjunction with Intel Core i9-10900KF with the ASRock Z490 AQUA, Splave creates a new record of 42.17 points on Cinebench-R11.5 and wins the Global First Place. 
 
Of course what is not mentioned is the price of the motherboard which is over 1000 dollars. However if you're an extreme overclocker then maybe this motherboard is what you need.

    It's kind of funny because the whole point of this board is the fancy board waterblock and he wouldn't have even been using it for this.  I was wondering if they were going to release an oc board for Z490 but it seems not unless there is one for 11th gen.

    Peak Asrock Marketing: The Z490 Aqua didn't win 4 Global First Places
     
    It was a special engineering sample board with different components and 2 memory slots instead of 4.  It was a special motherboard designed to set records, and Asrock is using sly marketing to make it seem like their $1100 retail motherboard is equivalent and able.
     
    Watch the video.  He makes some real valid points about failing to change board naming and the use of Photoshop to create deception, in comparison to other motherboard manufacturers who also have created special overclocking boards and have set records without utilizing deception.

    The Z490 AQUA is no doubt the right choice for PC enthusiasts.

     
    Why can't they be transparent?  Why are they being deceptive?
     
    In the quote below, "..." inserted to try to steer buildzoid's quote into something which is a bit more manageable.  Watch the video above to hear the actual full quote.

    We've had extreme overclocking special editions boards like this... Gigabyte has done things like this where they made like 10 special edition exteme overclocking boards to set a bunch of records ... But the thing is that Gigabyte ... never made the claim that the Z370 Gaming 7 broke any records; because it didn't!

    Well, it was an Aqua board, just modified. Still, Asrock have a history of marketing bull****, their advertised memory speeds never seem to follow their QVL list either.

    Glad to know you are the few being self aware of what certain companies do😁👍

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
