    That's also a very good choice for the motherboard you chosen however I don't understand why would you need to overclock your ram if your using it for video editing? I don't think you'll be able to reach that speed anyway on this platform, it's possible but fairly tough.
    The Geforce RTX series are fantastic however I don't know how much it will come to effect for a video editing system.

    I'd suggest OP have a read of some of the blog articles here https://www.pugetsystems.com/

    It may help in forming a realistic idea of use-case hardware requirements.

    Seems the confusion also runs between an Amazon problem and an ASUS problem

    VRM is good on that mobo. What is not, is lack of UEFI options. Know this from an owner who went over to MEG after owning Zenith Extreme.
