Motherboard for overclock

Hi all,
I have ordered an overclocked PC. It will be used exclusively for gaming (flight simming). However, I am wondering whether to amend my order (change motherboard) in order to get the best possible CPU overclock. It is advertised as "up to 5GHz and I would like to get it as close to that as possible. I'm considering a change to Rog Strix Z490-F Gaming, or the Asus Rog Maximus XII Hero Wi-Fi. As I say, the upgrade is in order to achieve the highest possible CPU overclock.
