Introduction

 

 

EVGA launched their X299 Dark a little while ago and even based on first impressions, the motherboard is a beast. It's extremely over-engineered in regards to circuits and injects features and quality when they aren't really required. Both the right and left edges of the PCB are plated with gold as are some exposed pathways on the PCB, and it's very hard to bend the PCB because of it.

There are two fans on the VRM heat sink, the motherboard comes with a PCB used to create a test bench, and it has a pretty intricate monitoring and diagnostic system built into it. We have seen some crazy X299 motherboards, such as the X299 OC Formula and Rampage VI Extreme, let's see what happens when you mix them together, which is what I initially thought the X299 Dark was.
