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.

Not in relation towards any Ryzen cores, but those were related to Nvidia drivers. Spectre protection since 1803 or Retpoline may cause driver to run out of sync with CPUs. If there is a way how to safely disable this feature it would fix the issue.
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.

I am sure everyone already knows, but 1920x is $200 free shipping from Amazon. Killer deal for a great CPU!
Doing my third TR4 build with this around the Taichi M.
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.

Ok I finished (mostly) the Phantom Gaming 6 1920X build. Board interface is quite basic. The VRMs keep decent temp (but cramming into a small case with a top mount PSU probably helps). Team Vulcan B die 3000 ram went to 3333 without issue just as it did in the Gigabyte gaming 7. Seems like a serviceable if basic board. Benchmarked quite well. Went and bought another got one more old computer I’m gonna retire.

TR3 CPU will not come to X399

Most consumer boards are designed for "bling" and not functionality. All the latest boards from the past several years have these monolithic chunks of metal on the VRM's simply to look chic and have actual very poor surface area for their supposed job of heat dissipation. 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.
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.
