1. no one board have real 16 phase VRM (doesnt exist VRM controller for more than 8). This board has really strong vcore calibration to real vcore on chip. In this case is better than any X299 board ever. Dancop confirm this also in comments (and not only him, is few guys what this board are testing some time)
2 the fans spin on from the 60C on VRM, this situation is able in hard load and on more than 10-cores Skylake-X CPUs
3. it depends , I like design of new R6E more than "old" R6E
4. OK
5. it depends, Im OK for both placements (both are fine for me)

An 8-phase control system with 16 phases worth of components is still gonna work really well, and you have reduced latency when you don't have doublers. Less than 6 actual phases I would complain about but 8 really is enough.. it's not like you loose the current capability or efficiency of the 16 phases worth of components.

Would be interesting to see which deals better with load changes, 8 bigger phases with less latency or 16 doubled phases with more latency.

I hope they announce the release for the 1st half of the year. I'm getting the platform upgrade itch, and I don't feel like giving Intel $500+ for the CPU alone.

And maybe asus used to be better looks like they keep going downhill..
Aso why would you need any help? from ocn to make your life 1000x easier,for such a great board miles ahead of competition.
Also lets hope your board does not have any issues where you need to rma because they are the worst company to deal with ever.

A BIOS is more than just a tool for overclocking. Any enthusiast board can OC so I would hope you sister could do it. After she finishes that up, tell her to examine hardware IOMMU groupings determined by the board, and then to setup a multi-VM environment. Get out of there with that non-sense. This isn't about gaming.

There are features, stability, and bug fix concerns pertaining to professional users that receive lack luster support from some brands. The AMD microcode is still in its infancy and reps from partners will tell you straight up that it is not as refined and easy to work with as intel's currently. I am not saying ASUS is the best board manufacturer overall, simply stating that in X399, in my specific use case, they have done well with bug fixes pertaining to people who do more than play games.

Why would I need help from OCN? Because like anything else in the tech world, nothing is perfect and it helps to work with others to solve problems. Was that a serious question?

Right there with you. I thought we would see one when 2nd gen Threadripper dropped. I have found creative ways to make my Zenith do what I need for now.

Has anyone bought one of these yet? Looking everywhere for one without spending $100s more than retail (or an Extreme).

See my post here regarding the VRM fans.

The PCIE layout is pretty bad on the extreme motherboard. Most Z390 ATX motherboards have better options than that. Many RTX 2080 Ti Cards are 3-slot due to the extra heat this generation pumps out. You could only have 2 of those cards on this MB and that's it. No sound card or anything else. At least the Z390 Hero/Code/Formula/Extreme has the 1x PCIE slot to use above the first 16x GPU slot for a sound card or something (what I use).
