The EVGA X79 Dark is a reimagined EVGA X79 platform. Built from the ground up this motherboard has a number of firsts, creating a landmark platform for PC enthusiasts everywhere.

It starts with a full 12 Layer PCB, improving overall overclock stability and PCB cooling. The memory trace layout is optimized for compatibility, improved overclocking and full 8 DIMM memory support. The CPU VRM is redesigned, using the best industry IR power stages, for efficient power to your CPU. The PCI-E layout is improved, better lane distribution for better performance + PCI-E 3.0 compatibility, and 4-Way SLI support in E-ATX form factor. A slew of great onboard devices including additional 4 Port SATA 6G controller for a total of 6 SATA 6G ports, Dual Intel Gigabit LAN's and a USB 3.0 controller for a total of 6 USB 3.0 devices.

The GUI BIOS has been completely redesigned. This brand new GUI BIOS from EVGA was focused on functionality so you can get in, and get out. No splash screens to click through, no enormous menus to scroll through, no steep learning curve. The way a modern BIOS should be.

Awards of the EVGA X79 Dark (150-SE-E789-KR)

If you should be looking for a high end gaming/overclocking motherboard for Intel's socket LGA2011 then the EVGA X79 Dark is certainly a great choice.
This new UEFI looks great, it's rock solid stable, it has everything you need to push your system to the limit and it allows you to overclock as far as your CPU and cooling will let you.
EVGA has one of the most intuitive UEFI interfaces on the market. In fact it's a breeze to work with
When it comes to overclocking we found the X79 Dark to be one of the easiest systems to use and attribute it all to the new UEFI system layout and a little experience on our part.
The X79 Dark though uses the new GUI BIOS, which has a nice layout, plenty of features and mouse support.
