That new NH-D15 looks really good! I`ll definitely try one of those when i get the chance. 
On the other hand, dissipating 400W into the case...., not something to take lightly.

Hey guys, somebody on W10 1903 ?  i updated last week, but i don`t see any improvements to 2990wx performance...

Looking forward for next generation of Threadrippers later on this year. Seems like  EPYC lineup shows really great improvements https://wccftech.com/amd-epyc-rome-server-cpu-7nm-zen-2-price-specs-leak-64-cores-under-10k/  , completely destroying Intel in  performance/watt/price ratio.

Hey, i`m running that same kit you talking about  f4-2933c14q2-128gtzrx on same board no issues. Over past 2 months i`ve tried all 3 bioses available, all work fine. Only time i was experiences any crashed was when i was testing extreme overclocks. 
If you run CPU at stock clock speeds, and runnning ram at profile 1(2933) there should be no issues. If i have to wild guess, maybe it`s the AIO cooler, or terrible air flow i case with overheating VRM. 68 deg Celsius, at this temp CPU should start throttling already...  Both are easy to check, run HWiNFO64 and let us know what temps you getting. Look for CPU(Tdie) and VRM MOS.  Just run a long render that utilize CPU at 100%, watch the windows task manager 100% cpu line and if it starts dipping occasionally, you are in trouble :)

Great, let us know how it went. For me 3.8 at 1.1v rendering for hours was working fine, no crashes. But i was getting crashes in houdini simulations, so i bumped it a bit to 1.15 and running smooth now. I guess this really is silicon lottery territory, you might get lucky and run lower then me, or not :)

Running PBO, temperature wise is probably the worst option. It overvolts the CPU so so much.  Seeing 1.4-1.5v !!! on some cores it`s not rare.  For illustration i can run 3.8GHz on all cores at 1.15v  and get better temps then default PBO.
At 1.1-1.15v for all cores,the total CPU power consumption is around 275W, will get you 5850Cinebench.
Runing PBO will get you up to 300W, and get around 5200-5300 Cinebench.

So if we are talking purely about rendering performance, or 24/7 render loads, Manual OC is the way to go.

If you struggle with single tread performance or use poorly threaded applications,then PBO can help, but not much. Because, how much can you gain,going from 3.8 to 4.0-4.1 on those couple of cores that can take it..

btw, spent about a month bencharking 2990wx on Linux(ubuntu and mint) and it`s just ridiculous how much faster it is on Linux compared to Windows, some application, like Houdini, up to  30% on simulations(pyro/grains/).

Sorry to hear that. What happen the the board btw? any indications?  Did you had it overclocked? I`m running Aorus Extreme, so far so good. Updated bios twice, all was fine, even Raid0 data stayed intact. Its ok board, but have it`s limits in VRM. I would not recommend overclocking it for 24/7 rendering use unless you can manage/mod the VRM cooling.  I`ve removed those "nice looking"  but useless plastic covers from VRM and i have 10 degree lower temps.  I added extra fan and got another 15 degrees lower temp. 25c difference that`s just crazy, and shows how stupid this LED/GAMING marketing is, creating rainbow looking board, rather then a functional one, just sad...

I was doing some  more testing, and i found new sweet spot for my build. Running manual x 38 at 1.1 volt.

Scores 5870 in cinebench, eats only 290W max. That means i can run all fans on 30% speed, aka silence. 6h render run at this settings, stable, 56c max temp on CPU, and 92 on VRM.

I`m up and running. All smooth. After 8h testing/rendering, not a single blue screen / crash.

Booted right away, updated bios, no issues.

All 8 G.Skill sticks work fine on factory XMP profile, 128GB  at 2933. kit is F4-2933C14Q2-128GTZRX , timing  14-14-14-34 .

Performance wise, tested multiple PBO configs from 250 to 500, and i settled on 400/400/400 for now. With that i get good single core performance boosts to 4.1-4.2Ghz, and for multicore I get 5750 in cinebench.  Aorus VRM at this settings, after 1h rendering never peaked above 100C.(with extra fan on the backplate of the mobo)

Asus Hyper m.2 x16 works perfect on x399 too, With 2x2TB Samsung EVO 970, i get 6800MB/s read, and 5000MB/s write.  Raid needs to be setup in BIOS, 16 PCI slot set to 4/4/4/4 and AMD raid driver installed at windows installation.

V-ray bench - 24 seconds
Corona Bench - 36 seconds

Only issue with EKWB vardar fans, from 9 of them, 2 suck, one ignores PWM(maybe broken cable), and other one is noisy af. But damm, that orange/red heat looks good on them :) will return and replace.

Damn MSI, now that they learned how to actually design proper HEDT board with their alpha version AMD version, they come up with much improved Intel's counterpart.

Look how MSI MEG looks for x299 platform: Phases aren't in single long row, thus space for 4 dual-slot GPUs suddenly became available even for EATX without going EEB (yes the CPU socket size makes for difference too, but this could be designed around).
Dual 8-pin becomes tripple 8-pin, testament to how actually powerhungry the LGA2066 chips are.

I think i'll buy this to my i9 7980XE so it's more solid overclocker.

nice board indeed, and properly spreaded 4 PCI slots :)

I just started to run my leak tests.... I really like the cable management on 0-11 Air, all hidden in the back, and i can even throw and extra fan on the mobo backplate:) I used few sleeved cables too, for PCIe and 24pin mobo  because original cables from 1600w psu were too rigid..

including a new Dynamic Local Mode that automatically migrates applications to CPU cores with direct memory access.

Yay, let's see how this will work.

That looks promising!

Getting some stuff in.  Front and bottom fans next.

due manufacturing precision EK vs Lian li, i was not able to one last crew on side radiator fan, holes does not align.

I was a bit disappointing that EKs Vardar fans does not come with any rubber feet or other vibration dampening system.

i kept one of the NVME drives under original Aorus heasink, and for second slot i used EKs heatsink. I wonder what`s the temperature difference going to be..

For everybody that is tempted to go for Enermax liqtech tr4 AIO

Just don`t do it, TR II have leaking issues as well....

here are few posts from official US Enermax support:

Juraj, how did you setup your fans cables + control?  3 to 1 Y splitter and then dirrectly to board , and each rad separately for more control? or both rads are on one PWM control cable to cpu FAN?  i`m going to have 12 fans in my, maybe in need to look for some fan hub..
