EVGA Z490 Dark

In this review I’ll be looking at what might be considered the only game in town for Extreme Overclocking, the EVGA Z490 Dark.  Much like what DFI did with their LanParty boards the EVGA Dark is what I would call a revision and enhancement to the EVGA Z490 FTW that improves and tunes the motherboard to handle all sorts of overclocking and extreme system builds while still offering out of box performance for fans of high-end hardware.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

EVGA may be better known for graphics cards and power supplies, but the company has also been pushing into the motherboard realm for years, though with far fewer products than competitors like MSI or Gigabyte.The EVGA Z490 FTW WiFi that we’re looking at here sits at the ‘bottom’ of the company’s Z490 product stack, with the high-end Z490 Dark ($699.99) sitting above as the only other board on Intel’s current platform. You won’t find a Micro ATX or Mini ITX board from EVGA, just the ATX FTW and E-ATX Dark.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

In this review we will be looking at the new EVGA Z490 FTW motherboard.  Visually this board is almost a direct copy of the EVGA Z390 FTW.  There are a few minor tweaks and an effort to include a few overclocking features found on the Dark edition.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

EVGA has always gone their own direction and the Z490 FTW isn’t any different. In a lot of ways, this board looks a lot like previous FTW boards like the Z390 and Z370 models. Mostly because of the silver metal cover over the rear I/o and the otherwise plain styling on the rest of the board. EVGA has always been about simple and black and they always avoid lighting which makes the inclusion of RGB lighting an interesting addition.

EVGA Z390 Dark

The rotated CPU socket and DIMM slots do seem to help with airflow levels and the 17-phase VRM design does wonders when it comes to overclocking (can easily go well over 5GHZ on the i9-9900K if you have a very good cooler). RAM compatibility is also very good since the Z390 Dark supports modules with speeds surpassing 4600MHZ (we may get a chance to test some 4800MHZ modules on it to verify this).

EVGA X299 Dark

The retail box for the EVGA X299 Dark is rather plain with few product specifications on the box. You will notice the “Optane” logo in the corner. This is not Optane DCPMM. Instead, it is Optane memory via SSDs.

EVGA Z390 Dark

EVGA have taken a different approach with the Dark, looking at the lessons they’ve learnt from their experience with the X299 Dark motherboard and dispensing with the “stuff it full of RGB” approach favoured by most other manufacturers. Instead they have gone all in with producing a motherboard where all the rough edges have been smoothed off and the focus is solely upon bringing the highest possible performance to your desktop.

EVGA Z390 FTW

EVGA’s motherboards have long held a strong following within the PC DIY community. EVGA maintains a relatively small motherboard portfolio by the standards of its competitors, just a handful of motherboards per chipset, containing models specifically for overclockers and gamers alike. EVGA simply does not do a “low-end” or “entry-level” motherboard for Z390, as the Z390 FTW intends to demonstrate.

EVGA Z390 FTW

With the Z390 launch EVGA’s first motherboard is the Z390 FTW, which is will eventually sit in the middle of their Z390 product stack once other boards are launched. This board looks quite similar to the Z370 FTW board, but does have a few changes. We will be combining this board with our Core i9-9900K to see what it can do! Read on to find out!
