Board includes newer bios / works great with Rome CPU9/19/2019 9:15:00 PM

Pros: - lots of PCIE3 slots / dual 10gb nics === perfection - packaged with larger bios chip / works great with Rome EPYC 7302p CPU - works great with crucial ddr4 3200 ecc ram - bios has an amazing number of options vs earlier rev 1.1 bios

Cons: - BMC on my board will not initialize but everything else works ... hoping its an early bios issue ... dont need remote hands / I can live with it - Noctua cpu fans power down when cpu is under 50c ... early bios? easy work around / case fan headers working as expected

Overall Review: Looking forward to future bios updates / otherwise this is the perfect board to pair with what Patrick at Serve the Home is calling the 7302p "Category Killer"

Hi David, Thank you for your feedback! Please contact me at for troubleshooting about the BMC not initializing issue. If the board came with a larger BIOS ROM allocation, you should already have the latest BIOS P2.30 as of today (Sep 23, 19). Please contact me. Thank you! ASRock Rack Support Email:
Amazing product ... but check your bios for support!9/19/2019 8:15:07 PM

Pros: - LOTS of PCIE lanes, 3GHz base, this is the perfect cpu.

Cons: - Any existing ASRock EPYCD8 board or SuperMicro H11 that is not sold pre-packaged and tested with this Rome cpu is unlikely to ever support Rome because the bios chips are too small. Make sure you can download a supporting bios patch for the revision of your target board that supports this chip before attempting to upgrade. Pretty sure every SuperMicro H11 board on NewEgg that is not pre-bundled with a Rome cpu has the older revision 1.1 bios soldered down and will never be compatible. - Hopefully some time in the next year? Compatible boards will be available for this amazing cpu.

Overall Review: Verified Rome 7002/7001 EPYCD8-T2 board now up on newegg does include the larger bios and works with this cpu. I am a happy camper.

Works great with both ASRock EPYCD8 and SuperMicro H11SSL with 7401P9/3/2019 6:02:39 PM

Pros: - great price

Overall Review: Tested 128 GB in both ASRock EPYCD8 and SuperMicro H11SSL with 7401P and no issues at 2666... Hoping to use this ram later at full speed with Rome CPU if / when the revision 2 versions of boards with larger Rome compatible bios hit the market.

Awesome board / great price9/3/2019 5:47:17 PM

Cons: revison 1.1 bios - so I will never be able to upgrade this board to a Rome cpu / but I expected that. Pretty sure if I got the same board bundled with a Rome cpu, it would be packaged with the larger compatible revision 2 bios.

Overall Review: - Having the board pre-tested and validated with the cpu / bios / ram provided a lot of peace of mind. - Board booted up with no issues while populated with 128 GB crucial ddr4-3200 - Centos 7 runs awesome with no issues out of the box.

Nice upgrade!8/22/2018 12:33:24 AM

Pros: - Boots a lot faster vs older X399 gaming pro carbon when fully populated with ram, nvme drives, and mellanox cards - Running Centos7 with KVM guests using pcie_aspm=off in grub and custom ML kernel with config option CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_SP_PSP=N - Love the VRMs on this board

Cons: None - worth every penny

Boots up with Centos7.3 ...8/17/2017 1:33:22 AM

Pros: Clean netinstall of centos7.3 works with grub option pci=noaer

Cons: With msi gaming pro board / gtx 1080 ti ... had to add the following to grub boot options ... "text pci=noaer" to get default centos 7.3 kernel to boot / and elrepo mainline kernel does not boot. This is not a complaint ... just something to watch out for until updates to next kernel or centos 8.4 roll out.

Overall Review: 16 cores / 32 threads and enough pcie lanes to run more than a couple of video cards with ecc ram ... Thank You AMD :)

Pros: 12 threads, 64Gb of ram, using Kubuntu 12.04 in spite of evil UEFI bios; 25% time savings over previous i7 setup.

Cons: UEFI bios - if you want to sell me a board next year, make sure it boots linux.
