I went with the ASUS KRPA-U16 EEB mainboard.

It was locking up trying to install windows 10, but I eventually got a stable install after upgrading to the newest bios.

Right now I have it running a cinebench r23 stress test.

ASUS KRPA-U16 EEB
Epyc 7742 qs
NH-U9 TR4-SP3 cooler
16mb hynix 2133mhz ram (128gb of 2400 ram on the way, I ordered 2933, but the seller cancelled my order and tripled the price)
1tb wd sn750 nvme (Samsung - 980 PRO 2TB PCIe Gen 4 on the way)
evga 650 g+ power supply

r23 multi-thread score 54927pts without changing anything in bios or overclock settings.

The case I was going to use is not big enough for this board, so I am modding an old case to fit it, just until I get past the test phase.

Thanks,
Chris

my samsung pro ssd was just delivered, so I am going to put it in and test it out now.

can an admin move this to the workstations and server builds. I put it in the wrong group.
