Motherboard availability is like impossible lol. They got 1950Xs at Microcenter, 4 in stock, but no mobos of course, and I called them, their shipment date of X399 mobos is Wed and Fri, basically.
I just rather get the CPU now before that goes out of stock and wait for my preferred mobo, Gigabyte.
The only option available is MSI Carbon from Amazon, that will arrive Aug 22 from Amazon. I have NO experience with MSI motherboard, i am familiar with Gigabyte.
Edit: actually, that MSI Carbon looks impressive, the big heatsink looks nice. what about the VRM on it?
Giving this another week for mobo availability to be better for X399 from any sources.
