ASUS X399-E Strix Gaming Review
Test Setup and Overclocking

ASUS X399-E Strix Gaming
AMD Threadripper 1950X
Corsair LPX 2666MHz
Corsair LPX 3200MHz
Gskill Trident-Z 3200MHz
Corsair H100i V2
Noctua NHU14S TR4
Corsair MP500 M.2
nVidia GTX 980
With a decent amount of cooling in place on the Strix we're going to take advantage and see if we can push the 1950X Threadripper beyond its stock specs. We couldn't really go much further than stock, but it should be enough to just tweak it beyond what we've seen up to now.

I have to question Asus' motives these days. A gaming board for what is clearly meant as a workstation CPU (and small servers too I reckon), and this isn't the first of them. In fact they don't even make a workstation board for this CPU. I guess they expect only gamers to buy these CPU's, which seems strange to me.
I dont think they expect to sell many at all. Mainly because of TR rather than the board itself.Quote
I am finding it hard to differentiate it too much from the B350 Strix. I know it has lanes and slots etc but what good is all that if the performance stinks?
Ed. I'm sorry, HOW MUCH?!?!?!?!
