X399 Motherboards (TR4-socket for AMD Theadripper CPUs) Sortable Comparison Tables

******************************************************************************************
If you cannot view the directly-posted tables below (table is unreadable or appears mixed-up due to web browser compatibility and BBCode limitations in this forum), an updated and sortable table has been created and can be accessed in the link below (opens to a google spreadsheet):

Link: TR4 MOTHERBOARDS (X399) COMPARISON TABLE (UPDATED AND SORTABLE)
(10 MODELS LISTED as of last update)

******************************************************************************************

A consolidated list of TR4-socket (X399-chipset) motherboards for AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs for comparison of different brands and models. All information were researched and verified to the best of my ability based on manufacturer's data, user manuals, and reviews. If there are discrepancies/errors, let me know. Specs compared include:

  • BIOS chip quantity, VRM/Power Phases (CPU+SoC), ATX12V Socket for PSU cable, MOSFET Heatsink coverage, and P.O.S.T.-State LEDs, (if it has a 2-Digit Debug Display Code or just simple LED indicators)
  • RAM/DIMM Slots incl. reinforcements, if any (all mobos listed are dual-channel)
  • SATAIII (6Gbps) Ports, incl. those oriented in a 90-degree layout (for better cable routing) and U.2 ports, if any
  • M.2 (Key-M) Slots incl. those with heatsinks and their orientation/layout (traditionally, M.2 slots are parallel to the motherboard, i.e., at 90°, though some are oriented vertically, esp. in Asus models. Some Asus models feature DIMM-based M.2 add-in-card expansion.)
  • PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots and reinforcements, the Maximum Slot Speed and Multi-GPU Support (Nvidia SLI or AMD CrossFire), and Additional PCIe Power Socket, if any
  • Other expansion slots such as PCIe 2.0 x4 and/or PCIe 2.0 x1.
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, RJ-45 LAN Ports/Controller, and Audio Codec/S/PDIF Opt.Out/3.5mm Jacks at the rear panel, incl. specialty buttons (e.g. Clear CMOS and BIOS Flashback), if any
  • PS/2 Ports and USB Ports (incl. breakdown of each USB port type: USB3.1 Type-C, USB3.1 Type-A, USB3.0 Type-C, USB3.0 Type-A and USB2.0 Type-A) at the rear panel (note that "USB3.1 Gen2" is USB3.1, while "USB3.1 Gen1" is USB3.0)
  • USB Internal Headers such as USB3.1 (20-pin Type-C), USB3.0 (19-pin), and USB2.0 (9-pin), incl. those oriented in 90°, and Fan/Pump Headers (which are all 4-pin Hybrid PWM/DC, unless otherwise stated)
  • 12V RGB LED Strip Headers (most are 4-pin [12V/G/R/B], while some, esp. in Gigabyte models, are 5-pin [12V/G/R/B]+[W]) for std. 5050 RGB strips, and 5V RGB LED Strip Headers (Asus uses 4-1pin [5V/D/-/G] for RGB WS2812B strips; Msi uses special-type "Rainbow Header"; Gigabyte uses 3-pin [V/D/G] which are 5V/12V interchangeable via a voltage selector jumper and supports 5050 strips)
  • Specialty Buttons such as Power-On, Reset, and OC buttons and switches (others are not listed due to space constraints)
  • Armor/Shrouds (I/O and Audio Covers), PCB Dimension (Form Factor/Actual Size) and Colors (of mainboard/accents + ambient LED color, if any)


Direct links to manufacturer's site, and user manuals, are added for reference (can be found at the far right end of each table). Brands are sorted alphabetically in each table.

For comparison with other motherboard models:
X370/B350/A320-chipset (AM4-socket) motherboards for AMD Ryzen CPUs
X299-chipset (LGA2066-socket) motherboards for Intel SkyLake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs
Z370-chipset (LGA1151v2-socket) motherboards for Intel Coffee Lake-S (8th-gen) CPUs
