    Please activate Gaming mode when testing gaming. It switches it to 8 core mode and is equally as good as 7980XE. As it is now, you are misleading readers really.

    Thanks for your comment.

    We, however, test out of the box and, as such, this is the performance we get. The reason to use the 2990WX was to see how well the motherboard performed with the premier, highest-wattage chip, especially when overclocked.

    The next X399 motherboard review may well change the chip to the 2950X.

    Ok, got it. Then I guess it would be very good from AMDs part to develop a way to make 2990WX to work in 8 core mode automatically when firing games. I think you can agree with the fact that this CPU is shown in a bad light because of this, when it is as good as 2700X for gaming.

    The RAM issue - would that be negated by using the 4 outer slots, or are tall RAM sticks completely out the picture ? It seems a weird problem to introduce, considering this is a high end board most likely to be paired with high end RAM, but if it only affects the inner slots I can understand why. Using all 8 slots is definitely reserved for a much more niche crowd!
