man114 I’m currently trying to do a 1900x since the CPU hit $150 but the second Phantom Gaming was DOA (had a lotes socket, first one was Foxconn so definitely different batches). Just waiting for the replacement. Basically just replacing an old i7-2600 rig. Main reason for the 1900x is I need to run 14 (and possibly more) hard drives on top of the video card. The i7-2600 was fast enough for the work but putting more hard drives online wouldn’t have worked. Should be more than a tad faster too.

Back to my earlier point, seeing as they made enough boards to use both lotes and Foxconn sockets so there probably are quite a few of these budget boards floating around if future availability is a concern.

Build is almost identical to the 1920x build, same $20 case, only differences are ram (really really cheap Casper “electronchn” 2666 from aliexpress), a 980ti, and a 1000w PSU. Both PSUs were from a dirt cheap evga b stock sale months ago initially bought as spares, and I used the 850 instead of the 1000 in the 1920 because the 980ti is much more power hungry. Ultimately 90% of the time it’s going to be a media server, maybe some casual evening games, fancy isn’t really required.

I disabled Spectre so Retpoline doesn't work. but this fixed my issue, also had Windows Sandbox slowing my computer to crawl.. don't understand why.

Doing my third TR4 build with this around the Taichi M.
I can only recommend Taichi X399M for "little big build".

I picked the smallest TR4 - 1900x because i am fine with 8 physical cores, but i wanted 4 memory channels for some time. Board itself offers 3 full PCI-E 3.0 16x slots and 3 full NVMe 3.0 x4 slots without any need to turn any of them off. Onboard Intel NICs and Wifi are also really good, and quality of basic onboard Realtek is actually stunning.

If you pick Fractal Design Node 804, you would be able to use any PCI-E slot for GPU (two at a time, 3 if you get a riser and a spot where to mount it). On screenshots is AMD FuryX with watercooler. GPU itself is on mainboard while its radiator is in the second chamber - really great for low temperatures. In time I replaced it with AMD Radeon VII which is overall better card, yet i messed airflow a lot and temps on CPU, RAM and VRMs went up.

Same. I went cheap on my RAM, just got a basic Corsair 3000MHz CL15 kit, not able to get past 2666, but it's not a huge deal. Overall I think the board is pretty OK, but a stock 1950X won't stress these VRMs much. I don't really like the way the Fryzen looks, but performance is OK.

That’s like the cheap Asrock systems I’m building (that I really have no intent of upgrading even to the 2nd gen chips, I just want them to function for a long period of time doing their duty as small media servers so I don’t have to mess with them) it hasn’t stopped people from putting 2990s in them even though the VRM really isn’t designed for it, and despite that I haven’t seen anyone complaining they burned one out doing it anywhere. It may mean you can pick up a cheap mobo, I mean an X399 will be fine for a lot of tasks for quite a while.

The one series of boards that eschews the monolithic metalwork lately has been Gigabyte Aorus. Their VRM heatsinks are actual finned heat sinks with large amount of radiative area. I applaud that design decision. I wish more board manufacturers returned to the "form follows function" ethic.
There is no reason you can’t make an interesting looking heatsink like the Aorus X399 gaming 7 board that in at least some fashion allows airflow. The ones like the Asrock Phantom Gaming 6 though could use a look at. Considering it has the weakest VRM over the x399 boards it’s heatsink isn’t exactly well designed at least in terms of airflow. While connected via a heatpipe the side by the IO is pretty big probably enough so that the mass is helpful the top part is finned downward. It would clearly cool best with an air cooler (maybe Asrock bets on this in the budget range of things?).

It applies to more than VRMs, ram heat spreaders, m.2 heatsinks, more and more of it is designed more for the aesthetics these days. It’s like RGB on everything. There is no reason you can’t have both. I think the Gigabyte gaming 7 was a good example of it, aside from the Foxconn socket issues and their lousy BIOS support the board itself is not actually badly designed. If you had a BIOS that worked well with your RAM and other hardware it runs at good temps and is very stable in spite of RGB on everything.

My stuff to finish the Phantom Gaming 6 system should all be in this week so I’ll know better how the temps hold up. I’m hopefully optimistic it isn’t too bad and the board is decent, I have one other system that needs to run roughly 14 hard drives and I’d possibly build another while the CPU prices are low.
