I just hope that the price will got down atleast 50 euros on the Z390 Dark as it is a very nice board from EVGA.

This board is frickin awesome but it would probably be wasted on me, since I dont do "extreme" overclocking. I just love the more raw barebones look of it, without looking like a board from the early 2000s. Yea that and the performance too haha

I feel they could have gone even further.. Cut the sound card/extra sata, dual nics?! Native chipset ports is all i want, nothing more! PS2 ports.. kill them with fire! -_____-

I like the board, but at last check, $500 is a lot for it. It costs $200 more than the X299 Dark, but I thought X299 was a "higher" end platform.

Very awesome board. Overclocking is point and shoot. Set the voltage you want, give it -25% vdroop, and you get your demanded voltage +/- 10mv regardless of load. Has my 9900k stable at 5.1 @ 1.325v 0AVX offset and memory at 4200 17-17-17-37.

Plus I think it is super sexy....

Very nice, fast Z390 board !

Somewhat related, Gamers Nexus showed a few days ago that EVGA is working on a similar version for the Xeon 28c & Co crowd (around 26 min...)

As a side note, that 28c came into stock on Newegg very briefly last week, then disappeared again lol.
