    Nice! I might go with this over the Dark. Are there any features the Dark brings to the table over the Micro 2 aside from Quad SLI?

    Nice! I might go with this over the Dark. Are there any features the Dark brings to the table over the Micro 2 aside from Quad SLI?


    Other than the ridiculous amount of power and performance the Dark has, the Micro ATX 2 generally falls into being a little bit of a powerhouse of its own, along with some more mobile-friendly features, such as the new WiFi/BT module.  It's also currently the only other motherboard that can use the latest GUI BIOS (available on the dowload page).  One other major distinction is that the Micro ATX 2 has RGB headers, which can be controlled by ELEET.
     
    The Dark does have better M.2 support, more SATA ports, better monitoring, and significantly more overclocking options than any other EVGA X299 motherboard, however.  Other than Quad-SLI, it also has more PCIe slots available for devices other than SLI.  Similarly, there are more VROC options on the Dark, although the X299 Micro ATX 2 supports VROC, as well.  Lastly, the Dark supports Optane directly through one of the M.2 slots, while the Micro ATX 2 would require you to find a PCIe adapter for Optane.
     
    One unique feature that the Micro ATX 2 has that no other EVGA motherboard currently shares is the ability to flash the BIOS without a CPU.

    Does this new board a year later mean there's hope for an eATX X299 Classified board as well? Hopefully with more USB...

    This small EVGA X299 Micro 2 is example how mATX motherboard should be build.
    When new chipset show up and brands show up with low end mATX boards people decide to stay with ATX.
     
    For this board I would use Koolance CPU-400I and i9-7900X.
     
    GPU in first PCI-E and powerfull Sound Blaster ZxR in small slot.
     
    When you remove VRM heatsink below him is paradise.
