    Im currently rocking asus z390 prime a with 9900ks 5.1ghz stable. Is there any benefit if I upgrade to gigabyte aorus master?

    This. I switched from one b450 board to another because I have a weirdo use case that requires an onboard audio solution that allows you to divide the front and rear inputs as separate devices.

    That reminds me I need to sell that motherboard...

    I can game and daily usage with 5.2ghz but it fails when I stress test, so I dont know the gigabyte will help stablize at 5.2ghz or not.

    doubt it. and unless youre measuring epeen, 100mhz isnt going to be noticable.
