Fans of RGB lighting and Aorus's aesthetic will gravitate to this board when going down the Threadripper route...
Those of you in the market for an AMD Ryzen Threadripper board will appreciate the financial sweet spot is between £300 and £350. All of the big hitters have a solid board in this category. Aorus is represented by the Gaming 7 model.
Aorus doesn't skimp on obvious features, however, with multi-zone RGB lighting, quad-GPU support, triple M.2, fast WiFi, USB 3.1 Gen 2, and decent audio. Sure, if we're nitpicking, Aorus doesn't have Killer DoubleShot Pro networking, but that's about it for our list of gripes.
Again, much like our advice from the MSI, users will base a buying decision on brand loyalty because there really isn't much to separate the TR4 boards from a specification perspective.
Fans of RGB lighting and Aorus's aesthetic will gravitate to this board when going down the Threadripper route, though anyone looking for a more conservative offering will be equally pleased by the MSI X399 Carbon.
Bottom line: there doesn't seem to be such a thing as a bad AMD X399 motherboard. Aorus produces a solid offering that is certain to play well with its established fan base.
