MSI MEG X399 Creation for 2nd Gen Threadripper

We have been hammering on the MSI MEG X399 Creation motherboard with all sorts of 2nd Gen Threadripper for a about a week now, and it has not missed a beat. MSI did just get its product page posted on this board if you are interested, and video to show off its highlights as well. We got in too big a hurry to do an "unboxing," but will give it that treatment when we get a break in testing. The Creation has shown up over on Newegg for pre-order for $500 with a release date noted at 8/13/2018.
