    Unfortunately it will be 43 degrees today so it will all be cancelled out LOL

    @Arne Saknussemm, what active cooling do you use on the SOC please? I'm using an EKWB loop, including the monoblock on CPU/VRM, and have a GTX 1080 Ti Hydro in the first PCIe slot, and can't see a good way to cool the SOC. The new heatsink looks cool (sorry, can't help myself), and I wonder if it'll be available separately.

    I have my board out on a test bench so it is easy to stand/rig fans about where I want...in a case this solution will be a good one...but when I was in a case I used to make sure I had a fan dedicated to VRM too...I'll sacrifice pretty for cool any time so I'd even jury rig something in place...even with the new heatsink it's going to need airflow...

    I know glass side panels are all the rage but I used to like the side fan in a HAFX for example

    Question

    @asus staff : are you actually going to provide these thermal upgrade kits to your customers for free, knowing that we have already paid a premium price for our motherboards (that should have been properly designed from the start and have this thermal headroom by default) ???

    I just write about that on TPU before 2 days...
    ASUS should give to people for free and now you say they decide to do that.

    You see, I didn't mistake when I recommend you to go directly to Zenith Extreme.
    Now you could install 32 cores on same motherboard.
    I always thought that's best AMD motherboard ever launched.
    But it's even better with EKWB Monoblock and small 240mm radiator, pump/res attached to radiator and watercooling.

    Well I wrote to ASUS and they said that no, I would have to buy the cooling kit from a retailer....so it seems they have reneged on that.

    I'm not convinced this board is really capable of running 32 core TR....technically it might do it...but comfortably...

    MSI and Gigabyte have new boards with huge VRMs coming

    We'll see
