While not a big discount, first time I have seen one on this motherboard (without a bundle). Goes nicely with the current Threadripper discounts.

Why does high end board like this have only 6 SATA port instead of standard 8 slots and no P/S2?

Will the x399 be supported long term like am4? Looking to do a new build but would hate to build around a soon obsolete socket. Like the idea of the multitasking power of the tr4 though.

When you have 3x M.2 slots, who cares about SATA anymore?

And complaining about PS/2? Really? That was designed thirty years ago

Where are there 3x M.2 slots on this board? Haven't been able to pinpoint any. I've seen them between the PCI-e slots on other boards but didn't notice them there. Maybe under the painted heat shield???

One under heat sink. Two with DIMM to m.2 adapter.

You would be surprised. Have come in handy when troubleshooting faulty usb
Rare thing but I deal with quite a few computers a day and it has happened.


On another note: I thought AMD was supposed to cost less.
Not trying to threadcrap: I was literally having the internal debate this week on which way to go (intel or amd). It was between amd 1950x and intel i9 7900x. Feeling a bit better after seeing these x399 boards can cost the same amount as the ROG STRIX X299-XE GAMING I ended up buying.


Another note: Though I ended up buying an ASUS, they have to have some of the worst customer support if your motherboard has any issues. A few motherboards at work died ($500+ boards) and they sent them back saying nothing was wrong. Pain to deal with.

Was thinking of switching to gigabyte but my last asus motherboard was rock solid.
