X399 motherboard recommendations

5 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations for a X399 motherboard (TR 1920X or 2920X) in ATX format.

 

Other spec:

2 x Dell H310 PCIe

1 x Gigabyte 1660 Super (passthrough to Win 10 VM)

 

Looking for reliability and stability rather than something feature rich.

I have an Asrock taichi x399 and it’s been pretty solid for for me. See my blog for some build articles and related topics. Feel free to ask any question you might have.

 

if I was doing it again, I might consider a server board with tr4 support.

Thanks, I've had a quick scan through your blog. Plenty of reading to be done and some great articles for me to return to.

 

I think I've narrowed it down to the GIGABYTE X399 DESIGNARE or Asrock taichi x399 unless there are any other suggestions I should be looking at.  Asrock taichi x399 is the cheaper option so I'll probably go with this.

 

I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future.

I was originally planning to go with the designaire but came across a lightly used Taichi plus 2950x for a great price. Not very much between them.

I can recommend the Designare EX. The key benefit is you can pick the middle PCIe slot (the one x16 physical running at PCIe 2.0 x4) as intial display so you can put a single slot low end GPU there for Unraid to boot with. That helps tremendously with passthrough.

 

Shameless plug: have a look at my build below:
