I am confused over the motherboard. Earlier I read MSI do not have voltage offset in their bios. But they have the best VRM. So I was thinking ROG strix b450 f. Now I find that MSI have voltage offset in their January bios update. So I am still inclined to MSI b450 tomahawk/carbon ac. Should I finalize tomahawk/carbon ac?
Also does it worth to spend extra money on carbon ac over tomahawk?
