EVGA was missing on the LGA2011 motherboard wall at this year's Computex event in June. EVGA is one of the top brands overclockers and enthusiasts look forward to, for motherboards. As a late consolation, EVGA gave out a teaser picture of one of its upcoming X79 motherboards a little later in June. At GeForce LAN 6, however, EVGA made full use of the spotlight to unveil its X79 Classified (E799), a top-tier socket LGA2011 motherboard clearly designed for overclockers.

The X79 Classified uses a traditional LGA2011 motherboard layout, but with wide open spaces to make insulating it (against condensation) easier. The CPU power delivery seems to be in the hands of some very high-grade VRM design, it draws power from two 8-pin EPS connectors apart from the 24-pin ATX (that's right-angled). There are just four DDR3 DIMM slots, one per memory channel. A 4-phase memory VRM is deployed. Over the chipset area, a large contiguous heatsink covers most hot components in the central-right region. We don't expect there to be a bridge chip.



Expansion slots include four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (two are x16 capable, all four are x8 capable, depending on the way they're populated), and one PCI-Express x16 (electrical x4). The board is NVIDIA 4-way SLI capable. There is one PCI-Express x1. The board is built on the XL-ATX form-factor, and requires cases with at least 10 expansion slot bays.

Storage connectivity includes two SATA 6 Gb/s and four SATA 3 Gb/s ports internally, and two eSATA ports driven by a third-party controller. There are 10 USB 3.0 ports driven by numerous VLI-made controllers, eight on the rear panel, two by header. 8+2 channel HD audio with optical SPDIF output, two gigabit Ethernet connections, Bluetooth, and EVBot connections make for the rest of it. Expect a ton of overclocking features that come with EVGA's Classified series motherboards.

EVGA's first wave of LGA2011 motherboards, apart from the X79 Classified, will also include EVGA X79 FTW (E777), and EVGA X79 SLI (E775).

Feature wise this board looks loaded but from jsut the looks of it the board seems so bare; there should be more heatsinks on it to liven it up a bit

Indeed even for a prototype board it looks sparce.

It should be in an early stage, but I lost my hope from eVGA. Both ShannonR and Shamino left a year ago. Shamino went Asus, Shannon... IDK. Their P67/Z68 offerings are a load of junk. So is the 580 Classified. And I think I got perma banned from their forums for constantly attacking their fanboys. Haven't checked but Robb PM'ed me talking about a perma ban. Last I opened a thread on the 580 Classy, suggested the Lightning XE instead (as usual) then it turned into a flamefest. I attacked a few, they locked the thread and banned me. I hope they lost a few sales because it over their garbage.

Like I said it's looking "bare" because:
  • It's larger than an ATX board, it's XL-ATX, so things are far more spread-out
  • The wide open spaces help with insulation
  • This is a purely overclocker-centric product. Gamer-overclockers have X79 FTW upcoming.

I think it's the poscaps, and the lack of a NB. For comparison, my P55 Classy with polymers look even more loaded than my UD9. Both E-ATX. Then again it's one of the best eVGA boards back when their mobo's used to rock (Core i5-i7 era).

Cheers. Actually, this is the only forum I read (for myself) in the past years. The integration between the main page and the right panel is the best I've seen so far. I used to read the the old topics below each thread. Everyday, for hours. So I'm in fact very familiar to this site. ;)

Man stay away from carpets with any hardware electrostatic beware...

I hope they include that beautiful accessory that was the last motherboard, an analog gauge that indicates computer workload.

Yeah, the load gauge. Like a tachometer:



It's not that useful though; more of an accessory. The EVBot is what they should provide instead



it lets you OC/check your machine on the fly. The 580 Classified for example didn't overvolt unless you had it, which costs $50 or so.

I was expecting that the motherboard would have a full 8 RAM slot motherboard seeing how the form factor is XL-ATX opposed to the normal ATX form factor. This is clearly a prototype with the large un-used spaces and lack of heatsinks, but the back panel seems to be very promising with the large amount of USB3s. :toast:

Warranty

Not visible in any of the pictures we've seen so far is the warranty and customer service policy. MSI, ASUS, and EVGA all make great, shiny hardware. All great hardware fails eventually. EVGA provides a lifetime warranty with very few stipulations, and their customer service responds within 24 hours.

I for one don't mind paying a little bit extra for that, all other things being the same.

It's a board for overclocks, most "extreme" overclocking I've seen up close they've only had the one ram module in anyway :laugh:
