Great Motherboard - Good start for a new PC! 4/18/2019 1:33:32 AM

Pros: Straightforward Layout - Seems to be designed really well. BIOS is thoroughly well designed.

Cons: Port Layout may not be the best. Be cautious on this.
Manual is digital - and not entirely clear in some areas.
POST Beep Codes are overlapping with USB Detection - utterly useless for diagnosis.
CPU is too close to RAM Slots - Cooler Stacks are not going to work so well if your planning to overclock - will block DIMM Slots.

Overall Review: Initial Setup wasn't too hard - great BIOS setup. RAID controller was a snap to configure - no reboot needed.
Looks like a Overclockers dream in terms of control.
Utilities provided by EVGA won't work - trash.
Drivers provided on USB Key are handy - took care of itself.
Wish it had a couple more SATA Ports for expansion - but it worked out.
May want to think about a Larger case for this motherboard if your going to go all out.

EVGA Z390 FTW Was The Right Choice 1/16/2019 7:29:25 PM

Pros: Solid Construction
Simplistic Design
Great BIOS
Dual M.2 Drive Support
AI Overclocker Works Great

Cons: BCLK will not hold what you set. It says 100 in BIOS but CPU-Z shows it running at 98.7. You can set, save, boot and it will run at 100 until the next shutdown or reboot. Very frustrating!

The lower front panel connections are pointing straight down when board is installed in case. I suppose this is great for most cases but I'm using a Fractal Design Define S2 which has a full length PSU cover. This cover makes it almost impossible to get things plugged in. I did not catch this until I had my custom loop installed and it was too late to get the front panel audio cable plugged in. The power/reset/led wires took some real finesse and a pair of needle nose pliers. Think about this if installing into the Define S2 case.

This board does not come with a manual. I do miss the manual. An actual book that I can grab, make notes in and dog-ear pages. You will need to download the manual in .pdf

Overall Review: This is my first EVGA motherboard. I decided to stray from Asus for once and see how EVGA does and I have not been disappointed. The BIOS is super easy to navigate. The AI Overclocker put me at 5200MHz and it has been rock solid. However, tweaking things from the AI Overclock settings will get the BIOS a little confused and will usually require resetting to default before moving forward again.

I am really happy with my purchase and will be using EVGA boards in the future.

And did I forget to mention that it is a simplistic design without any RGB? It has RGB headers if that is your thing though.
