I got 7m 49s on victor. u got 54s less !!! but I couln't find the barbershop bench !?? are you sure you are using the last blender benchmark 2.81a cpu mode ? ( https://opendata.blender.org/ )
....
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.

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...

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'll probably be beginning my build soon so we will see...

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!

ASUS have been doing this for quite a while... as far back as the Crosshair Hero VI and probably even before. They release a board, than customers find some issues with down the road, and ASUS, instead of trying to fix the issue for those people, they just release a new revision or a new model and the previous one is forgotten.
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!
