At number 18 on Fortune 100's list of Fastest Growing Companies, SuperMicro traditionally offers server and datacenter products, but now they are targeting gamers. SuperMicro recently established their gaming brand, SuperO, which is positioned to provide consumers with high quality gaming parts. With slogans such as "Server DNA Infused", you might assume that it is just marketing, but having looked at many of their motherboards I can attest they are not messing around. Server grade components and design practices are very common on their motherboards, and that is good news for people who want an X299 motherboard since Intel's HEDT platform has typically been closely tied to their server platform.

The C7X299-PG features Aquantia's new 5Gbit NIC, Intel Gbit LAN, two U.2 ports, two M.2 ports, four USB 3.1 ports (one type-C), 8 memory DIMMs supporting 128GB of DRR4, XMP 3733MHz+, and the Realtek ALC1220 with a Texas Instruments OPA1612 amplifier. Durability wise, the motherboard uses an 8-layer server-grade PCB, 20K@105C hours rated NIPPON Chemi-Con capacitors (that's very high), fully integrated power stages, and digital PWMs. The motherboard's UEFI is said to be improved over previous generations, and the motherboard offers a new look and theme compared to their previous X99 motherboard. We hope to take a look soon and let you know how it does.
