X399 Aorus Xtreme Threadripper Motherboard Review

Aorus Pro X399

We love a good high-end PC build, and I’m sure many of our readers do too. We’ve already seen that the latest AMD Threadripper CPUs are a bit of a wet sponge when it comes to gaming. However, when it comes to heavy lifting number-crunching, they simply cannot be beaten for their brutal performance and incredible price per core. Of course, getting the most out of your new CPU usually starts with a quality motherboard. The Aorus Pro X399 is about as feature-packed as they come, helping you unleash the full potential of the TR4 processors.

Features

The X3999 Aorus Pro is certainly well equipped, offering support for the entire TR4 range of CPUs, as well as quad-channel DDR4 memory and overclocking. You’ll find superb connectivity too. There are USB 3.0, 3.1, and Type-C inputs. Expansion cards can benefit from 4-way GPU support. They’re not the things that really grab my attention, however. There is ALC1220 audio, gold-plated solid power connectors, ESD and Surge protection, Triple M.2 drive mounts and more. This is a very robust motherboard that’s more versatile and feature-packed than most people will know what to do with.

What AORUS Had to Say

“X399 AORUS XTREME stays faithful to AORUS design principles with the contour of its armor resembling the falcon’s dominant ascension into the skies, capturing the prowess and attitude of the falcon in flight. The LED zone on the I/O armor can be likened to the windshield of futuristic spacecrafts, symbolizing advancement and an eye into the future of technology.”
