ASUS X399 ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha Review

All the hard work that the ASUS design department have put into these revised, robust, over-engineered power phases and their cooling was time well spent. The X399 ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha barely breaks a sweat. Its worth noting that the FFE VRM temp results were basically achieved by covering the front and rear of the VRM's with insanely loud bench fans running 3000rpm. The fact the Zenith manged to match and even beat these without any troubles and without those heatsink fans even starting to run is insane. If it got that hot running 32 Cores and 64 Threads with a fixed manual overclock it does make us wonder if Asus have designed this ready to cope with the rumored next gen 48 Core Threadripper 3....?
