My System Specs

Default Evga Z390 Dark

Sure a nice looking Board...really like the 90 degree ports for 24 Pin and 2 x CPU 12v 8 Pins....16 Phase,,,,the Evga X58 Vanilla....X58 Classified were awesome.....but a lot of bad mojo with the Evga X79 Classified so I bailed out of Evga Mobo's and went with Asus Rampage X79......


....almost feel like I should have held out for this Board vs the MXI-E.....looks like its Evga answer to ROG Apex.....or MXI-E....very nice....comes with extendable standoffs for running on the bench....not sure who will have Water Blocks for CPU or how that 90 degree skew will work with Water Block.....

EVGA makes video cards. Sure wouldn't take a chance on a mobo.

There X58 and X58 Classified Boards were awesome...there were defintely problems with the X79 Boards....I wouldnt hesitate to give the Dark board a go as I know they were able to finally get the X79 right with several BIOS updates......
...bar none there great for support.... ....and of course Evga has expanded big time over the last 5 yrs to more than just GPU's !

I'm talking about Z390 boards. How many does Evga have? It's just my personal opinion. I wouldn't want to take the chance. I guess if an overly large number were ordered by people and they turned out 'okay,' I would look at it but I wouldn't be one of the guinea pigs - but, that's just me.

EVGA is up there along with ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and AsRock. Every motherboard manufacturer has lineups where they don't do so well (for example Gigabyte X79 etc.) but EVGA has generally been decent. Sure they don't have Shamino anymore but that doesn't matter and it hasn't mattered for years.

I know they have an FTW z390 Board and have had numerous Boards for z270 and previous Gen...the z390 Dark is Evga's answer to the Asus Apex XI by the looks of it....geared for OC'ing as was there Classified line of Boards......
