Hey what's up people! Today is a dark day, but in a good way. EVGA has sent over their Z590 DARK for us to take a look at, and before you keyboard warriors type in the comments, I know Intel Alder Lake CPUs and Z690 motherboards are out. However there still is a market for Z590 motherboards. EVGA's DARK series of motherboards has had a long history of being a niche series of motherboards focused on extreme overclocking
A build log featuring the exclusive Asrock X570 Aqua of which only 999 were made. I decided to change things up. I previously had a Threadripper 2990WX paired with an MSI MEG Creation X399 which I was not using to its full potential as a workhorse and found that more over it was being used for a mixed workload and gaming. The latter (Gaming) does not make sense on this type of CPU, and as I was not using the CPU in workload point of view often enough. What an expensive set of gear to have not doing what it is intended for ! So it was time to switch up and move over to Zen 2 with the Asrock Aqua X570 Aqua & AMD Ryzen 9 3950X.
