I'm not saying the ZEII is bad, actually it was my second choice If I could not find the board I wanted, but after that low blow with the ZEAII I will think very hard before getting an ASUS product in the future.
That is just a personal opinion and does NOT entail anything more!

you should be careful with gigabyte. I have very bad experience with X570 Aorus Master because of suck bios. you should go with asus for bios stability and oc reliability.

I'm going with the Aorus TRX40 Extreme and this thing is built like a tank! I have not had the "pleasure" to see the BIOS yet but according to all the reviews I've seen, it should be quite a good one.
I also did have bad experiences with Gigabyte in the past (the Socket A era) but I finally decided to give the another chance.
I'll probably be beginning my build soon so we will see...

That is your opinion/perogative. I have the ZEII and the ZEAII is on the way.

Absolutely! This is why there are different choices so people can choose!
Anyway with the recent reports of ZEII VRMs cooking themselves, I'm confident of my choice.
I hope you will not have any issues with your boards also!

...I'm getting close to make a choice between the Aorus TRX40 Extreme (tops ) and the more affordable MSI TRX40 'Creator' myself for my next build. I used to buy Asus exclusively for mobos (business + personal). But since X99 XOC pins, top of the line boards from Asus turned into a continuous bad experience, including early bios settings (example: default / auto VCCSA @ 1.43v+... )

I have had nothing but trouble free and great oc'ing with the MSI X399 Creation on my 2nd gen Threadripper, and every Gigabyte / Aorus mobo and GPU has been 100% trouble-free since s.th. like 2012 onward

I was actually wondering about your thoughts on the best TRX40 mb to get before I made the decision to wait on Zen 3. I too read too much in the way of bad as far as ASUS boards (and support) go, and was leaning toward the Aorus TRX40 Extreme at the time. Haven't used anything from MSI in a while other than their 1080 Seahawk EK X cards, and it's good to see some honest feedback about your experience with the MSI mbs.

I actually have more than one type of MSI X399 mobo...none has ever given me any troubles, and that is all on original Bios. No issues with Win10, no issues with memory compatibility (ie using Intel memory 'off' QVL for AMD, and then oc'ing like mad on super-tight settings) etc etc. I was kind of surprised myself...

That said, the Aorus TRX40 look$ like the one to beat in the current AMD TR cycle, but given my experiences with MSI (and the fact that both use that Infineon super-mega server VRM IC, and both come with those nifty PCIe4 / 4x M.2 expander cards) it is going to be a tough choice. BTW, I know that ASRock is also in that spec-game, but I have no experience with those, yet...

What is your ambiant temperature ?
Sorry for the late answer, I wasn't notified for your reply and didn't noticed it myself. It seems blender benchmark removed barbershop at some point in time but I still had it downloaded in cached files so it was still used. When I cleared everything, it didn't redownloaded it. So it seems is removed now. My ambient was 23C when I tested. My RAM runs at 3600 CL16 4*16GB Crucial Micron E-Die. If you get so lower performance, you probably have Core Performance Boost disabled (which would explain lower temps as well). Check BIOS and even if it is on AUTO, change it to Enabled and try again.
