I confirm that even on X399 threadripper MB, you don't need second EPS 8pins if you are not planning to OC beefy CPU too.Thank you so much. This is very informative.
You're absolutely correct. The motherboard is a Z390 chipset, with i9900K. I'm not planning to overclock it, so I'm very pleased to know this information you've just told me.
I thought plugging both EPS would be better, than neglecting PEG completely. But it seems like I don't really need two power connectors for the EPS.
I still don't know if I will update my system this year, either with Ryzen 3000 series cpu with/without changing MB.
This Aorus X570 extreme (with fanless X570) is an expensive monster...
Ryzen 9 3950X + Aorus X570 Extreme is awesome but worth 1350$...
