    OK so my board arrived too today...

    I decided to check out the Strix! Will I live to regret it? It's only had one BIOS in all the time it's been out

    Is it just a pauper's board with RGB?

    All will be revealed

    Pleasantly surprised to see an anti static bag! It's not as well packed or presented as an extreme board and the accessories are scant but that's cool...in fact I never open the accessories anyway...

    Getting it out of the box it's pleasantly heavy...it's a good sign. I partially rate boards based on weight

    So lets get that CPU in there!

    So with the aid of a small crane...lets get this in the socket!

    Instructions are on the socket for screw order...there is a clever torque wrench in with the CPU you will need..

    Loosen all three screws and the socket ILM will pop up

    You have to tug semi firmly to raise the carrier frame...It says in instructions to remove socket protector here but I wouldn't just yet...

    And replace it with the gravitational anomaly also known as your CPU...let the weight drop it down the last 15mm or so, so it seats right into the bottom of the frame...make sure it is all the way down into the frame...

    Now use the clever torque wrench to screw down three screws. It says to do in 1,2,3, order and of course 1 is first...you'll realise why the torque wrench is clever here because when you tighten the screw, the wrench will give way when tight enough...don't continue tightening any further when this "break" occurs

    Screws 2 and 3 will need to be pressed down a bit to "bite"...I tightened 2 a few turns then 3 a few then finished 2 then finished 3...

    OHH you went with threadripper, you aint fooling around are ya?

    1920x = 12core/24 thread - lots of processing power

    Nice choice for an AMD build. I know you'll get to overclocking it in time, looking forward to your results.

    So let's get the CPU block on there and....

    F%$&!!!

    And I can't..because it hasn't arrived yet

    RANT WARNING!

    I am getting sick and tired of companies advertising things as "in stock" and "ships immediately" to get you to spend your cash...and leave then you waiting.

    The "in stock, ships before you thought about ordering" block is who knows where...

    I get an email saying "we're working on it" "Your order has been processed" "notification of shipping" but none of that is happening. They simply register the shipment with the transport company but if you type in the tracking it has not been delivered to them...

    I won't name names here but I'm not a happy camper!!!

    Yup...I was hunting about and got an unbeatable price on one...was some weird offer on Amazon France for signing up free to Amazon Prime...

    Just have to cancel Prime with them within 30 days

    Will get around to OCing it I suppose

    RSX399EG.CAP

    vs

    ZE.CAP

    It's the little things...

    The reset and start button...the Clear CMOS button... Why ASUS can't supply a jumper cap for the clear CMOS pins on the strix??

    I'm a bit miffed I have to pay over 100 beer tokens more for these things...and still don't get DUAL BIOS ON EXTREME BOARD!!

    But it's done... ZE on the way...

    Cheers BigJob...I just saw you're having troubles...was about to reply in your thread...I'm new at this platform so not sure I'm the help you need but there are chaps here who know their AMD back to front so persevere a bit longer maybe...

    Still it's rubbish when things are playing up..I understand that!
