EVGA X299 Micro

Given the performance X299 is capable of, I’m excited to see if this board could be a good mATX build option to pack a lot of performance in a smaller package. EVGA typically keeps things simple with a blacked out look and little to no lighting for those who just want a clean good performing board. Let’s find out if that is the case again.

The motherboard that we are going to be reviewing today is the MSI B350 Tomahawk, which happens to be one of the most popular B350 models at the moment. With a retail price of $110 USD / $145 CAD, it certainly meets our definition of an affordable motherboard. When it comes to specs, it comes pretty well appointed.

MSI’s X299 XPOWER GAMING AC is one of MSI’s more recent X299 motherboards, and it features certain upgrades over the X299 Gaming M7 ACK and X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, including improved VRM cooling and many more features.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X

AMD’s Threadripper 1920X offers a great price point for a beefy 12 cores and 24 threads, and while you lose four cores compared to the high end Threadripper 1950X, it comes at a $200 savings. That’s great news if you are seeking unrestrained connectivity, competitive performance in lightly threaded productivity applications, and superior performance per dollar in multi-threaded workloads.

Intel Core i9-7960X

The Core i9-7960X offers the best performance from a 16-core processor in both lightly-threaded and multi-threaded workloads. Expect to pay for the privilege of owning one, though. Moreover, thermal challenges dictate that expensive add-ons like custom water-cooling loops are a requirement, particularly if you’re hoping to overclock.

Intel Core i9-7980XE and Core i9-7960X

The buzz since Intel announced it was bringing an 18-core CPU to the consumer market has been palpable: users are anticipating this to be Intel’s best performing processor, and want to see it up against the 16-core AMD Threadripper (even at twice the cost). Intel is the incumbent: it has the legacy, the deep claws in software optimization, and the R&D clout to crush the red rival.

The ‘Gaming Pro Carbon AC’ has become MSI’s defacto top-end motherboard in its main consumer line for the past couple of generations, mirrored with the XPower Gaming for overclockers. The slight change in MSI’s lineup over the last few years, from their trio of Gaming, MPower and XPower lines, to this, has been subtle – most noticeable due to the lack of an MPower if I’m brutally honest.
