EVGA Z390 Dark Overview

  • 1Description

The Z390 Dark LGA 1151 E-ATX Motherboard from EVGA is an enthusiast-level board designed for users mainly looking to overclock and benchmark their hardware. Built with a 17-phase PWM and on the Intel Z390 chipset, it's compatible with 8th and 9th gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i9 Coffee Lake-S LGA 1151 processors, catering more so to high-end i9 CPUs. It's also equipped with two dual-channel DDR4 slots that support up to 32GB of 4600 MHz+ memory, eight SATA III ports, two M.2 slots, one U.2 port, three PCIe x16 slots, and a single PCIe x4 slot. To keep up with the hardware, there are multiple fan headers, temperature sensors, and system monitoring features located throughout the board.

The Z390 Dark features two eight-pin CPU power connectors alongside the main 24-pin ATX connector placed at right-angles to help cable-management enthusiasts. Moreover, the CPU socket was rotated 90° counter-clockwise, so the memory could be placed at the top of the board. This results in an unobstructed front-to-back airflow for better system cooling without interference from the RAM and power cables.
10-Layer PCB
Crafted from 10-layers of PCB with gold-plated shielding, the Z390 Dark is designed for stability, durability, and heavy loads.
17-Phase PWM
The Z390 Dark features a 17-phase Digital VRM (12 VCore, 1 VSA, 1 VCCIO, 2VCT, 1 Phase Memory PWM) for stable power capable of handling Intel Core i9 processors.
External BCLK / Clock Generators
The external BCLK controller lets you fine-tune CFL-S system performance and the clock generator for PCIe stability and performance.
Eight SATA Ports
Two of the eight ports are controlled by ASMedia ASM1061, which provides limited Windows XP support for benching OS flexibility.
PCIe Disable Switches
The PCIe Disable switches lets you quickly turn off PCIe slots to troubleshoot or restore resources without having to physically remove the hardware.
Triple BIOS Selection Switch
Have three different BIOS profiles for overclocking, benching, 24/7 use, and switch between them as needed.
SW Slow Mode Switch
Lower the CPU ratio to the minimum in real-time reduce heat/power and increase stability between long benching sessions.
ProbeIT Connectors
Attach your own digital multimeter to the included ProbeIT adapter to monitor all your voltages in real-time.
Creative Core3D Audio
The Creative Core3D Audio quad-core processor provides you with 5.1-channel sound.
EVGA NU Audio is available via the front panel connector for a boost of power and audio quality for headphones or speakers.
SafeBoot Button
The SafeBoot button restarts the system into BIOS at safe settings in case the boards fails to POST.
Additional Features
2 x M.2 M-Key 110mm slots
1 x M.2 E-Key slot
Intel Optane Ready
1 x U.2 NVMe Port
1 x mini DisplayPort
USB BIOS Flash without a CPU
