Test Setup

We test STRX40 motherboards using AMD's Threadripper 3960X CPU along with 32GB (4 x 8GB) of Corsair 3,466MHz Vengeance Pro RGB DDR4 memory. We're also using an EK Water Blocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm CPU cooler and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition. To test the M.2 PCIe 4.0 capabilities we're using a 1TB Corsair MP600 SSD and, where possible, using the motherboard's own heatsinks to cool it to obtain both speed and SSD temperatures.

Test System

  • CPU AMD Threadripper 3960X
  • Memory 32GB (4 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3,466MHz DDR4
  • Graphics card Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition
  • PSU Corsair RM850i
  • SSD Samsung 970 Evo 2TB (OS); Corsair NVMe Gen4 SSD 1TB (speed/thermal testing)
  • CPU cooler EK Water Blocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm
  • Operating system Windows 10 64-bit
