MSI® HOW-TO Install AMD X399 CPU - YouTube
Ok, so the Asrock X399 Taichi didn't quite turn out like the MSI video, but atleast the 1950X is in and more importantly no pins were destroyed in the process. The difficult part is getting the torque screws started, but once they are it's home free. An EVGA CLC 120 AIO cooler is used to cool this beast and seems more than adequate for this CPU. I don't overclock the CPU so I'm not planning to get a bigger cooler anytime soon. So far the Asrock X399 Taichi motherboard exceeds my expectations along with 32GB of GSkills DDR4-3600 Trident Z memory.
