18 X299 motherboards review: battle for first

An affordable, overclockable or ultimate motherboard for your Skylake-X? We’ve got you covered!


Test method

We test all socket 2066-motherboards using an Intel Core i9 7900X, 32GB G.Skill Trident Z-memory clocked at 2666 MHz with CL14, two Samsung 850 Evo SSDs and a Seasonic Prime 650W 80Plus Titanium power supply. As separate graphics card we used the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. 

All tests are performed with the default settings of the motherboards. The differences in performance and power consumption usually depend on the specific tuning done by a motherboard manufacturer.
