Today, we're looking at EVGA's extreme overclocking Z390 motherboard the EVGA Z390 DARK. As in the past, the DARK series is EVGA's top-of-the-line serious overclocking oriented motherboard which has all the bells and whistles you need for going sub-ambient. It's not a flashy board, you won't find any RGB LEDs on this monster, it's real estate is dedicated to extreme overclocking hardware.

Interesting motherboard and for sure capable of high OC but:
- too late - half year after the competition (maybe in US 2 months earlier) which was breaking world records on their mobos and Z390 Dark can't offer much above that right now
- too expensive - on Z390 barely anyone cares about more than 1 GPU and then can find something like ASUS MXIG for ~$350 which is also designed for LN2, etc.
- problems with availability (at least out of US) - in EU it was listed since January, I got an email with info that the board is available in late March, the next day was already out of stock

I really wanted to play with this mobo but high price and problems with availability made me wait ... and I changed my mind. It also made me work some more on competitive products what in the end helped me to save $500.
