Supermicro has tossed its hat into the X299 ring with the introduction of their C9X299-PG300, a motherboard designed to utilize a VRM that could easily handle a 300W TDP. Now, whether or not you take that to mean Intel is going to release a 300W CPU, or if they are saying it is designed to handle an overclocked Skylake-X CPU, the VRM could handle 300W if you theoretically needed it to. Now, the motherboard also carries some more unique features such as a 10Gbit NIC, and it has a few interesting features. Let's take a look at this Supermicro X299 motherboard.
SuperO C7Z370-CG-IW is fast and is well designed. There are single things which I would change but in general there is nothing to complain about. Gamers should be satisfied as out of the box everything runs great. Less advanced users can have some problems with manual overclocking and for them I recommend overclocking profiles which let to set CPU frequency at least up to 4.8GHz. It’s more than enough for gaming.
La scheda madre in esame, nello specifico la nuova C7Z370-CG-IW, rappresenta la prima soluzione in formato Mini-ITX del noto marchio e, come facilmente intuibile dalla nomenclatura, si basa sul recente PCH Z370 Express di Intel, capace di garantire pieno supporto verso tutte le ultime soluzioni mainstream del colosso di Santa Clara, appartenenti alla famiglia Coffee Lake-S.
SuperMicro's subsidiary SuperO has one mission; to produce PC gaming products. That means SuperO is dedicated to making motherboards targeted at gamers, which is not an easy task since it is hard to relate motherboard features to equivalent gaming benefits.
If you are familiar with the name Supermicro, you probably spend some time around data centers and servers in general. However, with more than 2 decades of providing 24x7x365 reliability in the enterprise IT world, Supermicro started providing that same server-grade DNA in its SUPERO consumer gaming brand a few years ago to Intel’s 4th and 5th generation Core platforms.
