rjohnson11I really wanted an ASRock motherboard but this motherboard was cheap.
CraptacularOneLooking good man Now bring on the pics of the build
MasterMinerSetting aside price, Threadripper vs Core? Winner?Been an intel person forever, but it’s looking like they are flailing... is Threadripper the real deal?

Winner?Been an intel person forever, but it’s looking like they are flailing... is Threadripper the real deal?The only trump card Intel currently has is overclocking headroom. Stock vs stock performance? AMD wins in everything except gaming and even then AMD is pretty damn close. Where AMD falters is overclocking headroom namely in that they really don't have any. With AMD you're gonna top out at about 4.3Ghz give or take 50Mhz if you're lucky for an all core speed. With Intel you're looking at 4.6-4.8Ghz easy with their HEDT parts and this brings the performance between them almost even in a lot of the benchmarks and for gaming this clearly separates them as AMD just can't get the clock speeds to match them. Intel's mainstream parts like 9700K and 9900K are still alone at the top of the gaming performance hill however as these chips routinely hit 5Ghz or more all core and AMD just simply can't keep up with that.
rjohnson11Before I take some new pictures I need to do some cable management
Deliriouspics. and you can't give yourself a blue ribbon
Vlada011Great motherboard, best for Ryzen 3950X.I'm sure you recognize better build quality on ASUS high end motherboard.
atfricoGood and all but where the pics you hippie,😾Show some teaser pics or you get.a minus blue ribbon😼

So yes it's a mess right now. I also have 4 fans in the front that have no RGB displayed so I need to figure that out:
