EVGA X299 motherboards immediately set the bar for performance, cooling and stability. Since then, EVGA has improved the cooling, reinvented the modern motherboard BIOS, and continued to shock the enthusiast world with the EVGA X299 DARK. And these boards are only just getting started….
With the release of the New Intel® Core™ X-Series Processors, EVGA X299 Motherboards are ready and waiting for them. Current owners need only update the motherboard BIOS for full compatibility; new owners can boot into the motherboard BIOS and update the BIOS with their brand-new CPUs.
EVGA X299 motherboards were engineered to excel with Intel®’s most powerful Core™ X-Series processors, including the new Intel® Core™ i9-10980XE.
EVGA X299 motherboards were designed to support every type of user and situation, including content creators, gamers, and enthusiasts. With 32GB DIMMs, the possibilities are endless.
Whereas some competitors received a bit of heat by reviewers, EVGA won widespread acclaim for its X299 DARK VRM cooling solution. All EVGA X299 motherboards feature a thicker heatsink and/or active cooling on the VRM heatsink, leading to higher overclocks and stability under load.
More recently, EVGA provided a new BIOS update that revolutionized overclocking with OC Robot and in-BIOS stress testing. In an industry first, EVGA X299 motherboard owners could change settings and stress test them without ever leaving the BIOS.
Now, with the latest X299 motherboard BIOS updates, owners can use OC Robot to configure PerCore voltage settings, and stress test those settings, including AVX2 loads, without the need for an OS or third-party utility.*
Step 1 – Go into your X299 BIOS and select EVGA OC Robot
Step 2 – Select your OC Robot Type and run the EVGA OC Robot
Step 3 – Once complete, apply the settings, accept the changes and reboot
Step 4 – Boot into the BIOS and view your new settings.
Step 5 – Double-check your settings by running a stress test. If the temperatures are too high or the system feels unstable, don’t worry! Just close the stress test, change your settings, and run the test again. Your new settings and voltages will be tested without the need to save and restart the system.
Step 6 – Stress test your CPU one more time and enjoy your new, stable overclock!
*OC Robot does not support Kaby Lake-X processors
EVGA X299 Motherboards have been proven time and time again to be the best choice for enthusiast-grade performance, stability, and gaming by many PC hardware reviewers. Led by the EVGA X299 DARK, which smashed 12 Overclocking World Records before it even debuted, EVGA X299 motherboards lead by example.
