    I like the led lights at the sound ports. they should do that with the other ports too imho.

    Wait Threadripper is LGA not PGA?

    Also looks like I would have to buy a new CPU block for this. That's and added expense I was not expecting.

    Smart naming - X399. X399 will come off sounding higher than X299

    Can you imagine 4k+ pins on PGA ? I can't, even with LGA this is a huge socket.
    I hope someone on Computex makes picture of AM4 CPU vs this monster.

    I asked because I thought LGA was an Intel patent.

    They sure didn't leave much room for anything. Considering the geometry, this is going to need some very specialized heatsinks, and I don't think it'll be possible to have a single motherboard CPU thermometer - the die is just too big and the reading would be very inaccurate.

    As for the 2nd 8-pin connector, I'm sure that's only there for overclockers, or, high-clocked CPUs with more than 16 cores. Remember, the current 8-pin connector safely supports up to 288W. A Ryzen 1800X consumes roughly 16W-18W per core (hard to know exactly when you account the the wattage of the rest of the system, but it's definitely less than 19W). That being said, in a worst case scenario, the 16-core models will use 256-288W. I'm sure AMD won't push the envelope that hard, and it wouldn't surprise me if they refine the architecture enough to be slightly more efficient at higher speeds.

    They've had a couple LGA sockets in the past I know of, more for multiple core segment though. They're just crazy huge! C32 is one I can think of off the top of my head.

    No offense but what are you expecting? It's a huge core count, needs power! Most people that would buy this setup probably aren't too worried about power draw.

    My way of thinking is with that big of a pinout, it might not be a good idea to have that many pins on the cpu...

    This was already know since the beginning? At least, ever since we knew the socket was named SP3r2...
