So this is what is currently sitting at my desk in my living room. I run a statewide political advertising firm in California and this is the rig I use at my desk. I spend the majority of my day running massive spreadsheets with statewide offices and political seats that up for election while using tidal or youtube in the background. Yes from time to time I run Iracing but for the most part this is what my computer is used for.
This thing is great.. headroom for days and a bit more friendlier on apps than the Threadripper 1950x it replaced.
Good board, definitely tough getting the 1 screw to thread during the start of the processor installation sequence. 3stars because of audio issues, hum and feedback from audio ports.
good for most ... garbage if you care about what you listen too.. only 2 stars because it's better than on board audio
Great for playback and listening. For listening purposes these are great nearfield monitors. Wouldnt use them to mix with because they add color to the sound as well as a bump at the lower end. Run with Equalizer APO and Peace software.
If you don't know you can suck it.. these are amazing
