Very happy with the X299 Dark so far. Will drop a 14 core in latter today

I have 6 120mm Corsair RGB fans And 2 Thermaltake 120mm RGB fans. Will the RGB work on an x299 Dark? Thanks

There are no rgb headers on the Dark. You would have to use an ad in rgb controller

Bios update and you are good to go for the HCC chips. 165W TDP well within Dark capabilities. Article suggests that LCC phased out. See discussion on cache on the link above.
 
28 lane XCC obviously not compatible.

Taking this Thread a little off topic but why would I replace my 44 Lane CPU?

I have the base spec non-delided 28 lane, 6 core poorper's edition (second hand... just a stop gap CPU while I migrated from X99 mATX to X299 EATX).
 
For people like you with Skylake-X HCC upgrades are obviously far more marginal. But reasons:
1) Solder? Maybe. If you delided anyways then irrelevant to you
2) 14nm++ so perhaps more efficient. Article suggests 15% less heat.
3) More cache, although caveats to that.
4) Slight bump to clock speeds.
 
Bottom line: for you not worth it. But for SL-X LCC people, maybe worth it.

That is what will keep me from even thinking about a new CPU on the X299 Platform.
A lot of members did this this on their X99 Motherboards and look at all the Overclocking Complaint Issues with Windows 10 now.

I agree with you on the pricing. But these are prices for 1,000 unit orders from OEMs. In other words retail users buying single chips would likely need to spend another $100 at least initially.
 
For comparison, look at the prices of i9-9900K! Turns out the retail price of those is $100 on top of what it said on the slides. 9900K £600 here in the UK. Ryzen 2700X is £294. LOL.

Is there a new EVGA X299 ATX or E-ATC in the pipeline? Thinking this as we saw the EVGA X299 Micro ATX2 (which almost had me doing a microATX build! Still might if there is no X299 Dark refresh) and considering the Skylake refresh incoming.

Re: EVGA X299 Motherboards! 2018/11/15 23:51:05 (permalink)
Hi,
I'm currently considering buying the X299 FTW K, and for some particular need, I would like to know if you place a GPU in the first x4 PCIe slot using PCH lanes, would it be the primary display? Or does it go to the first GPU in the PCIe using CPU lanes?
Does anybody know?
Thanks in advance!

Does the Dark support Xeons?


No, LGA2066 Xeons are locked down only to Cxxx series chipsets and locked out from X299 PCH based boards.

Looking for advise.
I'm currently still running a EVGA X58 I7 920 setup. I never thought I'de get almost 10 years out of PC! Looking to upgrade. I can't decide on which DARK platform though. X299 or Z390. I mostly game but I do a little audio editing. Going with the X299 seems the logical choice. Socket 1366 to 2066. Triple channel memory to Quad. Price wise I'm only a few bucks more with the X299. I would love to be able to get 10 years out of my next build.
X299 Dark/I7 7800X/64Gb 3200 Ram in Quad channel
         or
Z390/I7 8800K/32Gb 3200 Ram in Dual channel
 
Do I wait for the 390 Dark or just go with the 299?

The X299 Dark has been on sale for under $300 so keep an eye or two out.

300$ EVGA X299 Dark!
That's reason for upgrade from 4-6 core processors on i9-9800X or i9-9820X.
 
How much is temperature of VRM on EVGA X299 Dark with Air Cooling?

People this is paradise for Eyes.
EVGA X299 Dark inside Lian Li PC-V3000.
She look like part of this case, they fit perfectly.
 


 
 
You can find build here on presentation of PC-V3000... Amazing!
I'm jealous on this, only I don't like how they finish some RGB details, without RGB this could be fat better.

Re: EVGA X299 Motherboards! 2019/03/10 06:27:55 (permalink)
Im building a 2 way sli setup with the x299 dark motherboard and for the time being will have x2 1070 cards and the intel core i7 7800x  and i want to run x2 samsung 860 evo series m.2 2280 1 TB each on the board for starters.
Anyways i want to space out my 2 cards more then 1 card slot, i want to use PE1 and have the other on PE4 instead of having the second on PE2. The reason is im water cooling both cards and want alittle more space between them will this board alow me to do this or im i stuck with only PE1 and PE2 slot placements?
Also will i be able to utilize both m.2 slots with my i7 7800x series cpu with sli on or only one of them?
thank you for any help
here is a pic of the start of project "Mini Fridge"

Welcome to the forums Jimbo78
 
There is a good break down of CPU PCIe lane distribution on pages 27 and 28 of the manual PDF
 
Information on your CPU - https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/123589/intel-core-i7-7800x-x-series-processor-8-25m-cache-up-to-4-00-ghz.html
 
Download page for EVGA product manuals - https://www.evga.com/support/manuals/
 
From page 27 of the manual:

PCIe Lane Distribution (Core™ i7-78xx, 28 Lane Processors)

PE1 – x16 (Gen3, x16 lanes from CPU, x8 shared with PE2)
PE2 – x16 (Gen3, x8 lanes from CPU, shares 8 of PE1’s 16 lanes)
PE3 – x16 (Not functional on 28 lane processors)
PE4 – x16 (Gen3, x8 lanes from CPU)
PE5 – x4 (Gen3, x4 lanes from PCH)
PE6 – x16 (Gen3, x4 lanes from PCH)
o Must be enabled in BIOS, which disables M.2 80mm

 
From page 28 of the manual:

PCIe Lane Distribution (Core™ i7-78xx, 28 Lane Processors)

U.2(PU1) x4 PCIe Gen 3 lanes
o Must be enabled in BIOS, which disables M.2 110mm

U.2(PU2) (44 Lane CPU ONLY)

M.2 Key-M (110mm) PM1 – x4 PCIe Gen 3 lanes from CPU
o Supports PCIe/NVMe only
o Must be enabled in BIOS, which disables U.2(PU1)

M.2 Key-M (80mm) PM2 – x4 PCIe Gen 3 lanes from PCH
o Supports Optane™/PCIe/NVMe
o Must be enabled in BIOS, which disables PE6

M.2 Key-E (32mm) – x1 PCH lane

 
As seen in the PCIe slot break down above with that 28lane CPU you will only have 16 lanes available on slot one, the rest will be 8 lanes or less, and the PM2 M.2 slot will be on the PCH
 
To really use the board to it's full potential you need to get an 44 lane CPU
 
 
NOTE: The M.2 drive CANNOT be an M.2 Sata - quick google search was showing the 860 evo series m.2 2280 1TB as an M.2 SATA - DOES NOT WORK on this board, there is a typo in the manual.
This is why I put some of the M.2 information above in bold
 
Edit note 2: Make sure you read this thread - https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2898601  
If you have not already done it remove the rest of the shrouds while you have the board out of the case and covers off for M.2 access and check / replace the CMOS battery
Having to remove the board and pull the covers after having it too a running state is no fun.
If you can it is best to use the bench board and soft tubing on the cooling system to bench the system and get the OS installed prior to getting it all fitted in the case to insure that everything is good to go
