Is there a special reason for using Threadripper ? One of best reasons for it is being able to use a lot of memory ny you are getting only 16GB. Considering your GPU it's probably for gaming and R9 5950 would be much better and cheaper.
Otherwise, there are no faster or slower MBs, they will all give you about same (invisible) performance.
