    Testing new build:

    Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS XTREME
    Gigabyte GC-TITAN RIDGE TB3 card
    3970x CPU (until 3990x arrives)
    2x Titan RTX
    1x Samsung SATA 3 ssd (system)
    4x Seagate Firecuda 2TB m.2 PCIe 4.0 drives (projects)
    Noctua NH-U14s-TR4-SP3 cooler
    8x32 GB G.skill 3200 MHz CL16 RAM
    BMD card

    Early testing thus far looks good. Sonnet dual cfast to internal nvme drive runs at max card speed of ~1.1GB/s combined over TB3.

    The Titan Ridge card is not bundled but is available separately.

    Hey DJ, Keep us updated on this build. I would love to see the R20 cinebench score on your setup. The 3970x has been tearing it up.

    These Seagate drives are quick:

    CB20 is just a hair over 17k at stock speeds.

    Wow that's an impressive CB20 score! And the (4) 2TB m.2 drives are killing it

    Is the Aorus Xtreme the only TRX40 mother board that supports TB3 ? I guess the TB3 card takes up one of those valuable PCIe slots.

    I bet we will get official releases date and price on the 3990x at CES. 64 cores should post the top CB20 score. It should just be a CPU swap for you.

    The Gigabyte TRX40 Designaire is the only other one that I am aware of, but that one does not have built in 10GbE.

    Also hoping for the launch of the WRX80 ChipSet for TR3. From what I understand it is a more Work Station oriented ChipSet for TR3. Hoping for a few more of those valuable PCIe slots and the ability to load more ECC Ram that the limited 64GB's of the TRX40

    Current TRX40 motherboards support 256 GB (8x32 GB) (ECC and non ECC).

    I have heard rumors of WRX80 but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. My only real complaints are there are no 7 + slot boards and no U.2 connectors in the current crop.
