I just purchased the Dark x299 if im using two sticks of ram with the new i9 10980xe will it be the Skylake x Dimm slots ?


Two sticks? It's quad channel and the new CPU won't magically require different slots lmao.

I've got a suggestion, do some research and have a basic understanding of x299 before buying a 10980xe/x299 dark cuz you're obviously not buying it for what it's intended for.

RAM - Population rules will not change
 
Quad channel is Faster & requires 4 RAM sticks
 
Enjoy your New Build
 
What is the reason you chose the Dark over the FTW K ?  The way it Looks or Features ?

The dark mobo pcb has dimm 1 and 2 marked Skylake x only and dimm3 and 4 both cpu's.
I have purchased a set of 4 x 4133mhz ram sticks as I know that quad is faster what interested me was what would be the reason for only running Dual?
Cool Gtx i like to overclock, tinker and leave my PC crunching numbers when im not busy but the board does look cool 🙂

Might find some info in this - Extreme Engineer "TiN" put up this OC guide / though it was written before the new Intel CPUs:  https://xdevs.com/guide/e299ocg/

The board also supports Kaby Lake-X CPUs, which only support dual-channel.  That's why the other DIMMS are marked Skylake-X only, as that processor family supports Quad-Channel.

Thanks for the info read through the above then seen your post Lee M .
I'm used to the i7 dual channel where less populated dimm slots can help squeeze that extra 100mhz lol

And that's why the DARK boards support only one full channel of memory, so that memory performance ends up being much higher across the board.

I don't see any information regarding the allocation of the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series.
What is the allocation of the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series.
Will X299 Dark be able to use the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series at all or is there a hardware limitation?

It doesn't have them hooked up to anything.  Essentially if you install a 10th gen Cascade Lake X CPU into the slot you'll only get 44 PCIe Lanes.  The motherboard should still support the new processors physically with no issues.  Will probably require a bios update though.

Hello.
Bios 1.19
After wakes Windows 10 from sleep, any custom settings (PCH temperature sensor for me) of the 80-port LED display reset to defaults (BIOS only). Also wakening, value of sensor PCH temrerature in HWiNFO64 (only this utility and BIOS sees chipset sensor) show is zero. Re-detect sensors is completely lost it.  Restarting the computer fixes everything.

 I just picked up a x299 FTWk yesterday with an older bios on it. Its great that EVGA are still releasing updates to this MB. Huge difference between the 2 as well. Keep up the good work guys !!.

Aw man, got the X299 dark and 10900x incoming! Can't wait to boot this thing. The CLx lineup/performance (needed the 40+ lanes) is sad but evga's x299 dark was just too good to pass :)
 
Let's hope all goes for the best when updating the bios!
 
Cheers!

Take 1 on at each side.
 
only if it was Kaby Lake X, they should all be at right side.

Will we be seeing some Micro code updates on the X299 series as well? I hope so. Still waiting for the 10920X to be available.

Hey people!
 
I've always been an Asus rampage guy since 5-10years. This time around i went with the x299 dark because you know the build quality is outstanding (bulldozoid). One question here. I'm about to get this board and 10900x installed and from what i've read, i won't be able to get into windows with this cpu because of the native bios which would be 1.00? (the one evga ships their mobos with). I already got the 1.19 bios update needed. From past experience, i would only put the ".cap" file (asus mobos) on the fat32 usb key and that would be it. Now for evga can i just put the "1E299119.bin" file ? Or i have to also put the two folders called "fptdos", "fptwin" and the "update.bat" file ?. Note that i'll be updating straight from bios since i won't be able to get to windows.
 
Thanks for the input!

God. I should’ve found this. Didn’t search in the right place. So nice of EVGA to show us the right way. Clear, straight to the point information!

Quick question.

If X299 Dark is on bios 1.00 would it get to bios while a 10900x is installed or i would need to use an old cpu just to get to the bios ? I’m stuck on « dF » post code and i’m trying to figure the cause before jumping to conclusions of a dead cpu and/or mobo.
