The Asrock WRX80 Creator is a large, EATX size motherboard for AMD's Threadripper PRO processors. However, it is smaller than most other TR Pro boards - and thus able to fit in many mid-tower cases. In addition to the sWRX8 socket for the CPU, it has eight RAM slots supporting up to 512GB of DDR4 Registered ECC memory and seven PCI-Express 4.0 slots. That layout allows for a very diverse configuration of expansion cards, but can be limited by how closely packed everything has to be in order to fit. Space inside the chassis, cooling / airflow, and power availability can also be limiting factors.

A wide range of connectivity is provided as well: six standard USB ports, two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, dual 10Gb Ethernet, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5, and both analog and digital audio. Internally it has eight SATA ports and a pair of M.2 slots, supporting a flexible array of storage options.

The Thunderbolt ports on this motherboard are a little quirky when it comes to video pass-through. That is not a big deal for most users, but if you need that feature then check out Ben's guidance below.

When using the TB video passthrough with this motherboard, we found success using bi-directional, straight (non-angled), 1.4 DP to mini-DP cables with a Windows supported TB monitor and the Thunderbolt control center application running.
