Quick questions please:

Can anyone tell me if
Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum RGB White 32GB 3600MHz DDR4 CMT32GX4M4C3600C18W is compatible with this board? Or if it's possible to use it with some tweaks?

The QVL List shows CMT32GX4M4K3600C16 but not the so trying to figure out if CMT32GX4M4C3600C18W is possible? Running this with an i9 11900k.

I have heard 18 may not be good but not sure. The reason I ask is that I have a spare kit and would rather use that instead of forking out for a new kit, worst-case scenario I will if I have to but would welcome any advice.

thanks

Why not try it and see? What do you have to lose, it is not going to damage anything? It should work though, bios support and updates are very good on the Maximus boards.

If someone said the c18 kit is not good they were probably talking about latency wise.

3600MHz should be no problem for an 11th Gen CPU on that board. As with all things overclocking related, however, plug and play compatibility may vary depending on the CPU sample, memory vendor and the guardband put in place. So one should always anticipate some manual tuning when buying high speed kits.

Z590 Aorus is one of the best motherboards for the I7 11700k, and it looks the part too. The motherboard has an attractive shroud that can be illuminated with lighting strips but I don't have much to say about compatibility. Also interested to figure out.
