Ahh thanks for the clarification. Still should be okay-ish for a 3900x as long as you don't go to crazy with it. Would rather have an Impact . . .
Taichi was the best X370 board
It was until I started using UEFI revs past 3.30. Bleh! Still had the best VRM config, though.

First I'm hearing of that. That's bad news. Asus did a great job with C6H for quite some time, despite early boards bricking themselves and all that madness.
I predict same issues for new Ryzen kids. Better go with Asrock or MSI (as HEPC)
Based on the VRM configs, it looks like Gigabyte has some real winners on their hands.

Unless you have some feature like PBO and/or XFR working that permits the processor to violate its TDP limits, I don't think you're correct. Deprived of those features, a 2700x will stay @ 105W pretty faithfully, while a 2700 will stick to 65W.

Yeah, no surprise there.
