The CPU multiplier is manually set to 30 times when the motherboard BIOS is disabled in the test, and all energy saving options are turned off because the power saving option affects the NVMe M.2 SSD performance. CPU is currently the most expensive high-end consumer i7-6950X, 10-core 20-thread fully open, the frequency state is 3.0GHz, you can TURBO BOOST to 3.5GHz.





The above performance can be seen, although the performance of the four boards are quite close, it can be said is almost no performance differences, but in the “Datong” can be found among a little difference, that is, ASUS motherboards in a number of results are slightly ahead Other pieces, from a number of achievements it seems, this is not a coincidence.

● 4 motherboard overclocking performance test:

Because it is the top of the X99 motherboard, and will buy the chipset players are generally the real “players”, there is the pursuit of overclocking, so overclocking test is also necessary.

But because of the variable overclocking is a lot, so can only control a single variable to test, because the test conditions are the same, so the test results can also reflect the motherboard overclocking performance and stability.

Set the way: turn off all energy-saving options, the CPU multiplier is set to 40 times, close the TURBO BOOST related functions, boot to run points.



ASUS is still slightly better, but of course, this performance gap is not large, in the use of basically can not experience the gap….

Overclocking stability test:

Maintain the above overclocking settings parameters, Prime 95 run on the CPU minutes to 2 hours as the standard, 2 hours does not crash that does not pass the blue screen test.


Overclocking full load test four motherboards can pass, the level of the four major brands is still very good.

4 motherboard power supply part of the heat contrast:

This part of the test match i7-6950X, with a thermal imager are loaded with Prime95 test silent frequency temperature for 10 minutes after the full temperature and overclocking status after 10 minutes.

Summary : From 4 motherboard power supply part of the heat, the best performance of the ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10, overclocking full load operation at a maximum temperature of only 52 ℃, power supply thanks to the luxurious materials and excellent heat dissipation Heat pipe, as the most luxurious motherboard, this result is not surprising. The temperature of the other three motherboards are also still very safe range, MSI, Gigabyte performance is similar.

PConline evaluation room summary:

Four X99 motherboard Hengping

In fact, four of the board are quite high, but better than not know, for some contrast down, you can see the performance particularly prominent, won the title of most projects can be no doubt that the ASUS ROG RAMPAGE EDITION 10 V , and this In the expected, after all, prices and brands are placed here.

Of course, in fact, the pricing of four motherboards are not the same, refer to JD price, ASUS – 5599 yuan, Gigabyte – 5399 yuan, MSI – 4599 yuan, ASRock – 2699 yuan. In fact, they belong to their own brand within the top or sub-top products, MSI and ASRock pricing, although slightly lower, but the performance is also very good.

X99 chipset because of the DMI bus in particular, so manufacturers can design, play a lot of space, especially in the budget of the high price range, there will be many low-end motherboard does not function, such as RGB LED lighting, Multi-function keys, more high-speed interface allows you to set the multi-disk RAID, more PCIe slot to SLI / CF. And these aspects are doing particularly well, in this four-board is indeed ASUS, integrated above the “recommended index” and “running score”, “temperature control”, are worthy of the title of the top.

● Participation in the excellent board:


ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 was born in the 10th anniversary of the ROG brand, as brand ambassador, really good demonstration of the strength of ROG. Before we have on board to conduct a comprehensive evaluation and assessment, we can point to revisit here again – http://diy.pconline.com.cn/816/8166540.html

The four motherboards, RGB LED lights do the best is ASUS R5E 10:

ASRock X99 Taichi

Here is another very good motherboard ASRock X99 Taichi, the price of 2699 yuan is still able to take into account a lot of necessary functions, and measured results also have run two points to win, but also reflects the ASRock brand a feature, Not expensive, not exaggerated.

But also on the shape of many motherboards can be considered a relatively large innovation, Tai Chi pattern is very recognizable. The motherboard is not expensive, but also provides three PCIe × 16 slots and dual M.2 SSD interface, for a limited budget but want to start X99 had fun players.
