    400W+ in a worst case scenario, for a user oriented CPU... is inhumane, and the sh** is not even delidded!

    You see AMD this is why your processors are not good and people don't buy them, because you can't even make an omelet on your processors. Intel can make me dinner, therefore Intel is better. :)

    Given all the "pre-throttling" with the toothpaste TIM + down powered default settings in the BIOS, both gutting the top end, he says VRM heat is not a problem.

    So 2 Wrongs make a Right?

    And, then he says this is a gaming board, not an enthusiast board, wait for Asus Rampage for OC'ing.

    All gaming boards are OC'ing motherboards, they all need to provide maximum performance - power, cooling, and head room for delidded top CPU with maximum core count.

    While the Asus Rampage x299 is better, it's still not good enough, which is sad as that's the board I usually get. I was hoping it was going to be good enough, but IDK... more reviews.

    The range of Intel i9 core count CPU's coming in staged releases - with the top end not even originally planned, has put all the current x299 motherboards out of the running.

    It's going to be better to wait for the final wave of i9's to release, with new motherboards to support them fully, and see how those perform.

    Maybe they need to apply the latest microcode update and see if it fixes the issues. Or maybe they rushed their production line that isn't power optimsed.
