Test Setup and Overclocking

MSI X99A Pro Gaming Carbon Edition Review

Test Setup

MSI X99A Pro Gaming Carbon Edition
Intel Core i7-5960X
2666MHz Corsair LPX
3600MHz Dominator Platinum
nVidia GTX980
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair Neutron GTX
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10 

Overclocking

Although the full potential of the latest X99 motherboards will only be discovered when the new Intel CPUs land, the X99A Carbon still gets some good speeds from our Core i7-5960X. We had to back off the CPU clock speed slightly to achieve the memory setting we prefer, but still a combination of 4.35GHz CPU and 3000MHz DDR4 should be plenty of bandwidth for anyone's needs, and at only 1.25V.

Dam!

I have stayed on Z97 and not gone to Skylake. I hear the X99 platform whispering in my ear. And the form factor being ATX is a big plus for me. I really want one, have to see if the money can be found to migrate my H440 rig to X99

Nice board. The carbon accents are a bit Marmite if I'm honest.

As much as X99 tries to lure me I'm resisting and staying with my Z87 XPower for the moment.Quote
