    I don't have a ton of experience but from my own builds and from reading here and elsewhere, there seems in general to be a stability tradeoff between amount of RAM and speed of RAM. Populating all 8 RAM slots with QVL-specified RAM kits and sticking to JEDEC non-OC RAM speeds, a system should be stable. It may be stable with some RAM overclocks too but no guarantees. Don't combine RAM kits to fill all 8 slots, buy an 8-stick kit that has been tested for the purpose.

    These are the RAM specs guaranteed by AMD for various combinations of quantity/frequency

    As you can see 8 sticks single kit is only guaranteed to 1866MHz for 16GB modules...i.e. if you try and max quantity..

    4 sticks of 8GB gets highest frequency...

    Thanks Arnie, that's good info. Wouldn't it be nice to have 128GB and really fast! Maybe in the future. I hope at least that RAM prices come down in the future.

    This board has been fine for me. I don't know why other people have so many issues but I can say I run my system 24/7 under Linux doing a lot of data crunching, and there have been 0 stability issues. Only thing I had to do was use a more recent version of the Linux kernel since earlier versions don't play too nice with Ryzen. Kernel 4.15 and onward works great

    As for RAM I'm using 4x16GB TridentZ CL14, running at 3000MHZ.

    Sincerely I don't know what to do.
    I really love this board but I don't want to have a ton of problems and have all these money wasted...
    I've had mine since the last week of December 2017, I've had absolutely no problems whatsoever with this mobo. I'm using it with a 1900 and 64gb of 3000 cas15 G.skill RGB ram and 3x M.2 NVME SSDs none of which, as a workstation setup has given me any issue. I use this machine as a media workstation so it being functional is critical to my business. I have it on 24/7.
    This was also my first PC build in 20 years and it seemed way easier then Id remembered. I also run a bunch of other stuff on it like two pro monitors off a 1080 and an AIO but I am not sure if this would be beneficial info per your question.

    I only now realized that there have been no bios updates for 4 months, which, I also agree is a bit weird, however, I assume that ASUS see no need to update it..?

    In terms of assurances from other users as to whether you should invest in one, I personally think that it as of November 2017 was the best mobo per spec for anything Threadripper, would I buy one today? Without having done any research on anything since, I cant really say yes or no, but as for problems, I havent had any and so I would happily replace it with the same board if I had to.

    Interesting... I have 8x8gb in mine, which were purchased at different times, as two sets of 4 dimms, I just followed the manual and inserted the dimms per serial number from the innermost slots to the outermost slots, and I havent seen any issue at all. Two 32gb (4 dimms) sets of G.Skill RGB 3000 cas 15.

    That's great! I just cited that as a general rule. Depending on memory speed and quantity, combining kits can work, it is just discouraged generally to avoid problems. Congratulations on a nice build!

    Your post is really helpful because I want to use this system 24/7 and a workstation setup with no issues is very important to my desicion.

    What's wrong with it?
    Haven't installed it yet, but now you're warning us...
    ASUS AI Enables HPET and that really screws up windows.
    You will get stuttering in games and generally slow the system down by 5 to 10%.

    I have this board for about 5 months at this point and it kind of works. I really hate the threadlocker on the M.2 shield, but I just decided to go with both of my SSDs in Dimm.2 slot. The only major advantage for this MB over any other I've seen so far is the included 10G card. If you are not planning to go with 10G network as your daily driver - just pick up any other motherboard.
    I had problems with making my memory to work at 2666 but after a while it worked, I forgot to save my settings before the bios upgrade so now I have to do memory and cpu overclock all over again but this is rather my problem. My computer works 24/7 all this time I have not seen any instabilities so far (after you find stable config for your overclock).
