So far fantastic

AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX - Ryzen Threadripper PRO Castle Peak (Zen 2) 64-Core 2.7 GHz Socket sWRX8 280W Desktop Processor - 100-100000087WOF

Pros: I run this on Asus motherboard and disagree with previous reviewer. I have not had any issues whatsoever, neither with CPU, MB or memory (256GB G.Skill). I have several systems with 3990X and prefer this system as it runs cooler and quieter with basically the same performance. Asus MB provides full Web UI management, so refreshing after BIOSes. Board is big but I use all standard cables in Fractal 7XL and Corsair 1600i, everything reaches were it suppose to. I also run two 390s and total of 7 M.2 drives. Again no problems at all.

Cons: No Cons.

Overall Review: Get it if you need serious stable computational power.

Not stable with 3970X or 3990X CPUs

G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 256GB (8 x 32GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18Q2-256GTZN
G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 256GB (8 x 32GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18Q2-256GTZN

Overall Review: I got this RAM for 3970X and 3990X builds. Unfortunately it is not stable for any frequency above 2666 MHz. In fact I tried several G.Skill 128 and 256GB kits and they all had this problem. My motherboard in Asus Zenith II Alpha.

Works perfectly with AMD 3970X

G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 128GB (4 x 32GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18Q-128GTZN

Overall Review: This kits works perfectly at it's rated speed on Asus Zenith II Extreme Alpha motherboard. On a related note do not get kits that are no qualified on that platform. I first tried a kit qualified for X299 and it was not stable. This one is trouble free.

Flexibility pays off

Pros: - If you need flexibility there is hard to beat this case. - It holds surprisingly a lot of stuff for it's size

Cons: - Construction quality could be higher

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this case if you need flexibility. My system is build on 6950X CPU and and it turned out I needed a really big cooler to overclock it. The case holds EKWB Predator 360 cooler which is pretty big, I venture to say there are not many or any cases of this size were you can fit it. My MB is Asus Rampage V Edition 10, also fits very nicely. Plus I have Nvidia 1080, 5 SSDs (one M2, two PCI cards, two SATA) and 3 rotating drives.
