I'm looking into Threadripper systems and am tempted by the X399 Designare EX, but can't find much on it outside of a few reviews, which are all pretty glowing.
It's been a while since I had a Gigabyte board and while obviously things like the Asus Zenith Extreme are very popular, they also seem to have a fair few issues. My impression is that Asus are being sluggish with addressing some of these problems as well, which whether correct or not has further tempted me into trying a different manufacturer. The X399 Designare EX seems to pretty much tick every box I need ticked, but I also need to make sure that once it is set up, it isn't constantly having to be torn down or updated just to get it stable.
It's only 8+4pin CPU, but since I don't intend to be overclocking it at all, I don't think that should present too much of an issue?
Only other thing that concerns me is I remember reading about issues with the Foxconn socket when installing the CPU?
Thanks in advance for any input.
