Nice review Tom. This one really is proper enthusiast board with all the sweet thingys on it.

I am actually not a fan of horizontal 24-pin socket. Because when it is horizontal you get a massive peace of black plastics (24-pin + cable), and your cables go 3cm straight into the grommet. With classical (vertical) one you get to use cable combs, and make that nice curve with cables, and show them off. Let's face it... what is the point on blowing serious money on custom cables when you get to show 3cm of them, and instead you get 10x10cm block of plastic instead?

Do you know how long I've waited for someone other than EVGA to do a 45 degree 24 pin! I love it and wish it was on all boards or at least a 45 degree adapter for those of us who don't want to see cables this is epic, I'm now waiting for the day all IOs around the edge of Motherboards are angled.

Thanks for the review.

I am curious to what voltage and LLC to get the 4.1ghz you tested on.

Also, did you make any adjustment to the BGS and BSWalt?

My next board

Very good review as always.

Looks like I have found my next PC upgrade.

Haven't done a AMD build for over 3 years. Looks like a Ryzen year.

Every other connection angled yes, that is epic, but for me, 24-pin and 8-pin no. And please someone put power cables on GPUs on the side.

1.425v

LLC wise - enough to keep it stable at 1.425v

Nice review Tom and really like the look of this board kinda reminds me of the Zenith board for Threadripper, I really think Asus have nailed it as far as these go in both aesthetics as well as performance
