    ROG Strix X299-E Gaming (X299, LGA2066) - info, experience, BIOSes

    Intel public HEDT CPus with platfrom Intel X299 at Computex 2017. The CPU reviews are still under embargo for short time ,-). But some informations are officially out and OK with Intels NDA.

    Intel X299 is really highend chipset for enthusiast CPUs. This year very powerfull, much more than anyone hoped. Because this year is AMD also very strong at CPU side (Announced not only 8 cores with SMT, but also up to 16C with SMT for AMD X399), Intel will launch step by step 6C/12T, 8C/16T, 10C/20T....Everything? Nooo, continue it with 12C/24T, 14C/28T, 16C/32T and new flagship 18C/36T !!!


    New LGA2066 will be new one after 2011v3...Great value is, you can put in two generation CPUs. More info bellow.
    1) Kabylake-X with new CPUs Core i5 X a Core i7 X. Those CPUs are KabyLake-X. Its basically Kabylake with more capacitors and bigger heatspreader. This could help with higher overclocking than classic Kabylakes. Kabylake-X have support only for dualchannel mode (up to 2666 MHz 1.2V). After XMP mode or manualy tweaking you can except everything between 3600 MHz to 4400 MHz at DRAM effective frequency.
    2)Skylake-X, are HEDT processors Core i7 X and new Core i9 X. Starting as 6C/12T and up to crazy 18C/36T
    There is support for Quadchannel memory. Based at first results on web, the memory clock we can expect overclocking of RAM around 3200 to 3800 MHz. All depends on type of memory chips, quality of IMC particular piece of CPU.

    APEX series replaced Extreme series in extreme overclocking segment (yes, all fans of DICE, LN2 and LHe are focus directly at this board). This board broked many WRs after first day :-) There is exmaple with informations about records from 31.5.2017. Rampage Extreme is for enthusiast, wattercooling setups, casemodders etc. Strix series is ideal part for daily overlcocking (of course, it can handle LN2 too !) and gamers, streamers...

    Motherboard looking clean and nice design. And wow, thats ATX, no eATX! So u dont need bigger case for it. I like "3D" lightning AURA effect in the middle.


    The board has support for up to 128 GB DDR4 in quadchannel for SK-X or 64GB dualchannel for KB-X processors. You can see the front USB3.1 connector and a little up is one slot for M.2 disc. The second you can put near the southbridge chipset (this second can be passive cooled via heatsink).


    As always, how the PCIe lines are distribution for GPUs


    And yes, connectivity is solid, WiFi, Intel LAN, SupremeFX audi, RGB headers, post code display, wattercooling zone. And of course, all ROG gaming features in sofware bundle.
