MSI has been a long-time advertiser on HardOCP, and without its support and many others, we would not still be here all these years later. So this is a blatant plug! Hey, at least we are honest about it, not something that you will find. MSI is running a Promotion with Intel: Purchase a selected MSI Intel-based motherboard or desktop, get $180 plus software pack free! This promo runs through June 30th. That all said, I am very much wanting to get my hands on that new MSI Threadripper board that it was showing off at Computex. TechPowerUp has some coverage on the MEG X399. This Computex, we are on the lookout for motherboards based on Intel Z390 and upcoming AMD chipsets such as the B450, or even the Z490; but a new X399 motherboard for the Ryzen Threadripper was the last thing we expected. Imagine our shock at the sight of the MSI MEG X399 Creation. This board has the most polarizing, in-your-face design from MSI since the mid-2000s (roller-coaster heatsinks, anyone?). The board appears to be clearly wider than ATX spec, and approaching E-ATX territory.
