ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E Gaming Motherboard Review

ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E Gaming

The latest X299 chipset motherboards are finally here, bringing with them support for the latest Intel Skylake-X processors! Of course, this means the latest 10-core i9-7900X (review) is supported, as well as the upcoming models with even more cores.

The X299-E Gaming motherboard from ASUS is a high-end gaming motherboard, priced at around £300. That’s not cheap, but it’s about mid-range for the current crop of X299 boards that run up to £500 for the enthusiast models. Of course, it’s not exactly spartan on features at this price range, and you’ll find robust overclocking, RGB lighting, M.2 storage, and a whole lot more.

What Asus has to Say

“ROG Strix X299-E Gaming is loaded with powerful tuning, overclocking, cooling and personalization innovations to make your next build as agile as your ambitions. We’ve channeled ROG engineering ingenuity into Strix X299-E Gaming to create a standout ATX motherboard that’s tricked out with superior SupremeFX audio for deeper in-game immersion, Aura Sync lighting with an all-new addressable-RGB-strip header to unleash infinite illumination possibilities, and special mounts that make it easy to create your own 3D-printed upgrades. Infused with the essential gaming spirit that is ROG, Strix X299-E Gaming is hungry for high-performance Intel® Core™ X Series processors — and ready to satisfy your desire for X299.” – ASUS
