Released back in November of 2006, the EVGA nForce 680i motherboard launched as a high-end motherboard perfect for water cooling. With improvements like SLI-compatibility, using a high-end processer gave users the ability to get some of the highest overclocks on the compared to other motherboards market at the time, even while using some high-end hardware to go along with it. Designed for the true enthusiast, the EVGA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard delivered the performance boost that extreme gamers crave.

Introduced in June of 2007, the EVGA 680i Black Pearl Edition took the EVGA 680i SLI to the next level with custom water cooling blocks inlcuded for the CPU, SPP (Northbridge), MCP (Southbridge) and VREG.

It took the already established overclocking performance of the 680i SLI, and turned it up a few notches. In addition to near silent operation, these blocks kept the motherboard running cool, and delivered the ultimate in reliability and extreme FSB speeds. The EVGA 680i Black Pearl Edition was engineered for the Ultimate Enthusiast.

EVGA Z390 DARK: Revolutionary Design

Beware, the power of the DARK side of EVGA's Z390 motherboards is now available! After setting the bar with the X299 DARK, EVGA went back to work to design the next generation of motherboards designed exclusively for the world's top overclockers... or those looking to become one of the world's top overclockers. No effort was spared to improve the power design, layout, or features of the Z390 DARK.

The Z390 DARK is the first motherboard to feature both the 24-pin power connector alongside both 8-pin CPU power connectors on the side of the board. Not only does the layout give the DARK a stunning look in contrast to the sea of Z390 motherboards lit up like rainbows, but the layout also provides a very friendly design for cable-management enthusiasts.
