    That’s exactly what I was thinking. If that’s the case, then it really doesn’t matter what their manual overclocking ability is like as you’re better off just letting the cpu do its thing anyway.

    I'm sitting at 3.9 all core, I wont buy unless there is at least 500mhz increase all core.... that would be upto 3800X, I have no interest in more than 8 cores

    With the improved IPC it's already better than your CPU would be at 4.4 ghz.

    I don't see them having any additional overclocking potential beyond PBO, perhaps 50mhz. AMD seem to be selling GPUs and CPUs at 95% of their maximum performance straight out of the box these days. If it took LN2 and 1.77V to get a 3950 to 5.2Ghz then 4.6-4.7Ghz is the most were likely to see. I want to be wrong but I've been disappointed by AMD launches too many times to believe otherwise.

    Do they really cost this much to make over the x470's ? I can't understand what is so special, yeah the vrms are better but there are some b350 boards that have great vrms for 3950x on that chart earlier....
    This seems rediculous

    Agreed apart from the Gpu's , the vega and Radeon 7 I overclocked substantially, the 7 from 1800 to 2200 core and 1000 to 1280 on the ram, thats a lot of percent, it was similar on the vega but not quite as massive.

    It's really weird the Threadripper ROG Zenith Alpha is cheaper than these high end boards... is TR dead?

    Manual overclocking is a waste of time. You drop your shiny new Ryzen into its socket and let the advanced algorithms do the work for you more efficiently.

    As long as it works as good as they make it sound, I prefer to use PBO. It really depends if its actually more efficient than manual OC.

    Far from it, but X499 isn't out until later in the year along side the 3-series TR CPU's. The current selection of CPU's still goes up to 32-cores if you need them remember. :)

    I found PBO pushes the volts to scary levels of 1.45-1.55 sometimes so i dialed in a perma OC on all cores of 4.35 @1.45 and it stays like that most of the time.

    Also the Crosshair VII Hero is less than half the price of the Crosshair VIII Formula.

    Obviously you'll get PCIE 4.0 but I really struggle to see that it's going to be significantly better.
