Best X399 Motherboard for AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU [Socket TR4]

If you are thinking of buying an AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor then you have to get a Socket TR4 motherboard for it. It is a bit disappointing that AMD has not gone with the relatively newer AM4 Socket which is being used for AMD Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 series processors. This is because AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors are pinless unlike the previous generation AMD processors. It is just like the new Intel processors where the pins are present on the motherboard and there are no pins on the processor.

Socket T4 is also known as Socket SP3r2 which is Land Grid Array (LGA) CPU Socket and it comes with 4094 pins. This T4 Socket is supported by the newer chipset from AMD which is X399 chipset and here in this post I am going to list down the best X399 motherboards with Socket T4 for building an Ultimate Gaming PC or a powerful Workstation.
