    Legacy XP support is mentioned, but none of my existing XP images/installs work due to ACPI compliance issues with the BIOS.  I was hoping to do some 2D benchmarking on XP (Super Pi 32M), is there an ES BIOS that has XP ACPI support?

    I can say that I made wrong decision when decide to stay with X99.
    Everything works fine and my watercooling parts arrive soon but I could bought i7-7820X instead
    upgrade RVE motherboard and sell CPU and motherboard in that time and use EVGA X299 Dark.
    Only she was not available in that moment.
    Motherboard is problem, because I used on models from high class, Skylake-X I will find cheaper than Broadwell-E.
    Now I would have X299 Dark + i7-7820X 8 cores and Supremacy EVO CPU waterblock, EKWB XRES D5 Revo 100 Glass, I ordered.
    Skylake-X not OC as X99, but far better than AMD and work on 4.7GHz and that's insane speed for 8 cores and impression in games much better than 4.0GHz CPU with 1000 Cores.
    I would not worry about Cascade Lake or future of X299. More to upgrade from i7-7820X to i9-7920X or similar later.
    With so good motherboard she force you to stay on that some platform longer time and X299 Dark is really unusuall.
    Like some Anniversary board or similar.

    Hi guys!
    Its my first EVGA motherboard
    Now I have a problem.. I want to disable individual cores, but I don´t know how, I think that it isn´t possible with the 1.07 Bios. Can I disable with the bios from the xdev-side any cores?
    Bevor the EVGA Board I had a Asus Motherboard and it has this funktion

    NVLink or HB Bridge it is the same. See Post 3 or 4-slot NVLink with X299-Dark

    The OC guide is great and much appreciated BUT how about a RAM timings guide. There are so many different settings in the MEMORY section of the BIOS and researching every value is overwhelming. I heard that Vince (K|NGP|N) gave Steve at Gamers Nexus (Tech Jesus) some great timings tips when he was doing the #RIPJAY on the dual 2080TI's. Any chance someone could put those "tips" out for the rest of us plebes?

    EVGA X299 Dark is definitely most attractive board after SR-2 Classified.
    It's nice because in same time Intel launch so many powerfull models who could fit on EVGA X299 DARK and serve people years.
    I can't find negative spot in build X299 Dark and i9-7900X except thermal paste and fact that people delid their processors.
    I hear i9-9820X is soldered, if that's true... great. He will serve enthusiasts long long after new sockets and chipsets show up.

    Even when DDR5 show up, some kits will be slower than faster DDR4 models.
    Rumors say attention will be on size. That mean X299 Dark will not become obsolete years.
    If someone offer me I would give and Rampage E10 and EK Monoblock together for X299 Dark.
    Because I would bought Heatkiller for 80 and use X299 platform.
    VRM cooler would stay fabric because such VRM cooling is not available on market with other boards.
    On every other board I would buy for 40 euro VRM cooler.

    Please tell me a utility that can change memory timings on the fly in Windows. With the help of the E-leet tuning utility, they can only be viewed but not changed.

    I have used ASUS MemTweakIt, latest version from downloadable utilities for their Rampage 6.  It adjusts primary  timings in windows, except Command Rate and CAS Latency, which have to go through POST to train RTL.  It also adjusts secondary timings and those thirds that can be set in BIOS, even though MemTweakIt lists more thirds.  Adjustment within Windows only works for those CPU where Intel allows it - usually 2011 and 2066 sockets.  With 115x sockets and with the 7740X (really a repackaged 7700K) adjustments in MemTweakIt do nothing.

    Wondered the same thing and not to shill my thread, but I think this is an issue some novice x299 owners should check into as there might be an issue. Not sure if it is just my board or all x299 darks behave like this (my guess is uefi glitch)... I could be wrong though
