With the release of the Broadwell-E CPUs, like the 6950X we reviewed a few weeks ago, comes the time for motherboard partners to release their updates and pack in more features. In this article we are going to take a look at one of EVGA's refreshes, the X99 FTW K. The K version brings with it some much needed updates in today's motherboard landscape with Broadwell-E support out of the box and the addition of an M.2 slot and USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and C like its mainstream brother, the Z170 chipset. There are also some changes on the network adapter side of things with dropping one Intel NIC to be replaced by the Killer E2400 NIC. Stick around for more details and performance comparisons later!

Nice review and a nice looking board.

Someone has to explain the logic of putting the PCIe 3 X 1 in the middle of your two 16X slots.
