EVGA SRX Motherboard First Look  


Introduction

So we finally have our EVGA SR-X sample at the OC3D office, it was until it arrived we realised just how much work we have to do with this motherboard. To get ready for the initial motherboard review we have 2 different sets of CPU's to test along side our usual 7970 bench rig GPU, but then just because we obviously have so much time on our hands in a separate review we are also going to be testing it with a GTX690.... Maybe then another one for some Quad SLI OverKILL3D madness!

So upon realising we have a mountain of testing to climb we though all you tech junkies would like an aperitif to get your juices flowing before the main course!
