This is actually the first time I am seeing the CVN Gaming packaging and I’m quite surprised COLORFUL is using a white packaging with grey highlights and some orange accents. The model name is printed on the sides and top cover but its a relatively dull box and easy to overlook and I highly suggest COLORFUL to stick with their more traditional packaging style.

ASRock TRX40 Creator

Where all other TRX40 motherboards with the luxurious options sell at 800~1000 USD even, ASRock outs their TRX40 Creator, and the price is 499 USD. A heck of a lot of money, but features wise you still receive AX WOFO and 10 Gbps Ethernet. Worth it?

In this review I’ll be looking at the MSI TRX40 Creator motherboard.  This is a board supporting the extreme upper end of the AMD product line and designed specifically for the Threadripper 3.  This is my first hands on look at the new platform and while I really wanted to use the X399 I’m glad I waited.

EVGA X299 Dark

The retail box for the EVGA X299 Dark is rather plain with few product specifications on the box. You will notice the “Optane” logo in the corner. This is not Optane DCPMM. Instead, it is Optane memory via SSDs.

AMD Threadripper 3970X & 3960X

Now they’re here: AMD’s 32-core 64-thread Threadripper 3970X and 24-core 48-thread 3960X have landed in our labs with the same core counts as their predecessors, but instead of a headline achievement like a doubling of core counts, Threadripper’s new architecture serves as the star of the show. The ‘Castle Peak’ design brings a new design that does away with many of the previous-gen Threadrippers’ eccentricities, which equates to massive performance gains across the board.

ASRock X570 AQUA

It is no secret that the AMD 7nm chips run somewhat warmer than previous generations, but the unique ASRock X570 Aqua looks to shake things up. The ASRock X570 Aqua features a full-cover aluminium and copper water block cooling the power delivery, CPU socket, and the X570 chipset all at once, and can be integrated into custom water cooling loops.
