    I'm assuming those motherboard standoffs are so you can camp under your motherboard through the winter?

    Perhaps I'm missing something. Only 2 memory slots , max 64GB and only 3 expansion slots for that money. No way in my book , cash better spent elsewhere.

    For that price, I hope they are hiding the other 2 memory slots there.

    Re: EVGA launches its X570 Dark motherboard

    And it does not even have 10Gbit at that price?

    Listen, if you buy this, then it is like buying the next new iPhone, you only buy it because of the brand, as it seem like you get little else, and to mention that, why is there not full specs on eg. the built in sound?!? I mean it must be real good to be able to lift that price a bit, likewise there is only 2 ram slots and max support for 64GB.

    Sorry EVGA, come again next year, the capacitors and the likes may be seriously good, but if all you can do with it it is to overclock with, then I do not see a reason to toss any of my money in that direction.

    Re: EVGA launches its X570 Dark motherboard

    Unless overclocking is in itself your hobby, this motherboard seems completely pointless. The most I've ever spent on a motherboard is £160, on the one I am using and, it's been rock solid this last 3 years. I don't overclock at all now, boost functions make it unnecessary.

    Re: EVGA launches its X570 Dark motherboard

    As I said when this was leaked a while back:
    2 DIMM slots, next to no features,etc.

    This is an overclocker's suicide run LN2 board.

    If you can afford to blow £1500 on board just to make it maybe to the top some overclocker's chart and are willing to risk all your gear, then this is the board for you.

    The something you're missing is it being a board designed for extreme (LN2) overclocking, at least that's my understanding of the dark series, and for best stability with LN2 you want/desire specially memory configurations and other weird stuff.

    It's essentially a board made for breaking records.

    It's really intended for competitive overclocking - having just two memory slots improves memory overclocking due to less interference between PCB traces. So if you're looking for a 'daily driver' motherboard for your PC, then yes, your cash probably would be better spent elsewhere

    So they made a Mobo that 1 out of 10000 would buy... and those that buy is either fanboys/girls or actual competetative OC'ers.

    Seems like very specialist kit but only for that specific type of buyer. Definitely not a common consumer motherboard and doubt I will ever see one in the wild, never the less it looks pretty cool
