Superlative is the right word to describe the hardware on the C7X99-OCE. Since it is capable of supporting CPUs from Xeons to the latest i7, the C7X99-OCE has the right hardware to support server-grade CPUs and overclockable i7s in one package.
Everything from the power components to the re-drivers for USB and the third-party controllers to support USB 3.1 make this motherboard one of the best performing on the market. At $304 USD, you get very high-grade components at an acceptable price tag for a high-performance X99 motherboard.
When it comes to overclocking, this board isn't necessarily designed for liquid nitrogen, but I have no doubt it could handle it. Nonetheless, Supermicro could make some changes, like making the clear CMOS button easier to reach and adding in M.2. This board trades M.2 for more USB 3.1, and you should keep that in mind if you are more interested in USB 3.1 than M.2. When it comes to 24/7 overclocking, the board works as great as any other X99 motherboard, and perhaps better than most.
The UEFI has greatly improved, and overclocking is pretty simple and straight forward. CPU performance is very strong, perhaps the strongest I have seen thus far, and total system performance is also very good. If you are looking for a motherboard with features and design practices used in high-quality server boards, outstanding performance, and the ability to overclock, then the C7X99-OCE is the right board for you.
