EVGA Z87 Classified - Back to top
"Not only does it have the higher end features, it looks the part too. Again, you all know me by now and I love understated styling in my old age. Black is the new black on this board. Only a couple of red highlights ‘de-cloak’ this board from the stealthy all black look, so it should go well aesthetically with a lot of themes."

EVGA X99 FTW - Back to top
"I love the look of the EVGA boards and have been pleased with all that I have used thus far. The X99 based FTW was no exception. Navigation inside the UEFI was easy and intuitive. I like that the vast majority of overclocking options one needs is all in one section and the rest of the configuration options are just a tab away, giving it a pretty ergonomic feel.”"

EVGA X99 Classified - Back to top
"I did do everything (4.76GHz 125BCLK @1.306CPU Vcore) from within the BIOS which was very functional and easy to use"
LAN OC Recommedned
"EVGA does things their own way and I absolutely love that. The rest of the market seems to play follow the leader imitating a lot of what Asus does but the best way to grow market share isn’t to do what everyone else is doing, EVGA is clearly paving their own way"
Editors Choice "Must Have"
"…the EVGA UEFI BIOS is an absolute breeze to use. It looks great, everything is easy to find, and as you saw today, it helped achieve an extremely strong overclock on our i7 5960X EE."
"The EVGA X99 Classified gives any enthusiast the tools they need to get the most from their Haswell-E Processor. While overclocking the i7 5960X to 4.9 GHz, the X99 Classified was eager to please and capable of pushing it as far as it would go. You’re more than likely going to reach the overclocking limit of your CPU long before this motherboard gets in your way."
"The EVGA X99 Classified Intel X99 motherboard pushed our Intel Core i7-5960X further than we’ve previously done."
Hardware Asylum RECOMMENDED
"When it comes to overclocking we found the X99 Classified to be one of the easiest systems to use and attribute it all to the new UEFI system and a little experience overclocking the desktop Haswell."
"...once the system was dialed in. However, the X99 Classified does seem to have a lot of untapped performance potential under the hood."

"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."
