I'm getting more hyped about pulling the trigger on a Threadripper, but the MB prices are putting me off quite badly. Even the cheapest ones are over $300 which is a lot of money for an MB even if it's enthusiast level stuff. So why is entry into X399 so much more expensive than X299? You can get a X299 for around $200 that's a huge difference. Anyway I guess my question is: Is it safe to buy an ASUS X399-A Prime which seems to be the cheapest solution now? I don't want record breaking OCs but if I don't get at least some OC I'd be disappointed.
