Most definitely not for beginners.
You get what you pay for, this thing is big, heavy and oozes with quality components and aesthetics.
Used this for a week solid and wow it's a beast, I swapped from a ASUS Z490 Maximus Hero (WIFI) for RGB Sync reasons with the MSI 3090 Suprim X as this was the only 3090 I could bag.
Taken a week of head scratching to find best performance, but I put this down to being used to Asus high end board bios' and this being my first MEG outing.
At no point on first POST does this board as for MCE setting (apparently MSI don't) like my Asus did, all auto voltages for CPU are complete balls to wall.
This board is driving a 10900K all core 5.1GHz and two cores boosting to 5.3GHz, at first the temps was outrageous hitting 100 degrees with an AIO. I knew from my old board this CPU can do the previous mentioned speeds with no more than 1.25v all day long, but this board was feeding up to 1.55v so for me this was a massive issue.
After a lot of tweaking and learning the bios I found a setting "Turbo Enhanced" basically MSI version of Asus' MCE, got that disabled and temps started coming down but still way to high 80s-90s Cinebench AVX 0 offset.
Setting the vcore to 1.25 fixed was ok under normal workloads but the bios under AVX would hammer the CPU with voltage again so lots of heat. I then tried adaptive with - and + offsets and again under AVX the board went balls to wall.
Eventually I found "override" which makes no sense to me but works like adaptive on a ASUS board and is really efficient, locked that in at 1.25v and boom after an hour loop under cinebench the board did not go over 1.25v, temps had come right down but still not enough topping at 85 degrees.
Now I found the final piece to the puzzle, the many other voltage settings for example PLL was all on AUTO I thought give it a try, found all the default voltages set them to to defaults and it's over.
After an hour straight on Cinebench R23 the CPU peaked at 72 degrees but only in last ten minutes, spent majority of time in the 60's with manual non aggressive fan curves and acoustics quieter than my PS4 Pro, the PC has NINE 120mm system fans , six of them on the radiator in PUSH PULL.
Wherever this board says AUTO under Advanced CPU make sure you edit it to whatever intel specs for that processor as the Ai for this board on Auto is way to balls to wall.
Few of my settings

MSI Z490 Godlike
32GB Dominator Platinum 3600MHz (4x8)
3x 1TB Addlink S70 NVMe
So after all the above this CPU on the Godlike does not go over 1.25 Volts and is perfectly stable with more than pleasing temps.
