Type Motherboard
Price $309.99 US

Test Setup

For the latest testing spree, I will be using the Intel Core i9-7920X processor which is a 12 core and 24 thread chip which operates at a base clock of 2.9 GHz and goes up to 4.3 GHz with turbo boost 3.0 technology. I will be running the G.Skill supplied Trident Z RGB series memory kit which comes in the 32 GB capacity, that is four sticks of 8 GB each, clocking in at DDR4-3600 MHz. Since both of the motherboards can push the memory beyond 4000 MHz, I will be checking out overclocking per board performance in this review too.

The Intel Core i9-7920X isn't a chip that is easy to overclock but both motherboards proofed that they can handle overclocking with ease. On the ASRock X299 Taichi XE, the maximum stable OC I reached was 4.7 across all 12 cores with a voltage of 1.292V and a maximum memory overclock of 4200 MHz was stable on this board.
