My gut deeling is the vrm support on this board will be inadequate for the 3900X and 3950X. It is barely adequate for the 8 core 2700X. I am now getting 85 Celsius temps running at 4.2 GHZ with the Prime '95 torture test with small FFT form factor for maximum heat. I have one of the best expandable AIO's on the market the Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme 280mm thick radiator. I have the pump close to full speed at 2700RPM and the fans maxed out. Of course I am in a sun room. During the day with the AC blasting the ambient temp is almost 80 Farenheit. So that is a contributing factor, but not the nain factor. As soon as the MSI X570 Meg Ace is released I will buy it if it is under $350. It has superb vrm and power phase support. I think thaty plus my Ryzen 9 3900X will run a lot cooler than this overclocked 2700X.
The statement is quoted. Therefore not my deception. And I don't use that mobo. I have the CH7, which is good.

And according to AMD Travis Kirsch, it is stated the the best Ryzen 3000 for overclockng, it’s definitely not going to be the Ryzen 9 chips.

So, my rig is going to be CH7 and 3700X.
