EVGA Z370 Classified K Review

Introduction

Most manufacturers have their own premium models that have a name writ large upon the history of hardware. Instead of bringing a new name to the party with each update, they retain a familiar name. Compare and contrast the Sony Playstation 1,2,3,4 style of naming to the Microsoft XBOX, 360, XBOX One, Scorpio "names out of a hat" method.

For EVGA their two main players are the FTW graphics cards and, in the motherboard world, the Classified.

Today's review is of the latest in this storied line of motherboards, the Z370 Classified K. A motherboard which is all about providing beast-mode overclocking to the discerning enthusiast.

How does it fare against the stern competition?

Technical Specifications

We often borrow the specifications table from the manufacturers website so as to ensure that we don't accidentally miss a feature, or take something for granted that might be important to a prospective purchaser. The majority of the EVGA Classified K reads like a what's what of current Z370 motherboard thinking, but spotting the Creative Sound Core3D audio is a nice surprise. It certainly makes a change from the more popular RealTek solutions.

Very strange board ! not in performance, as I know these have banging power stages but in design. You have this big white bit....... Then....... BLACK BLACK BLACK.

Very, very strange it almost looks lopsided. It needs more white. Even if it were the SATA ports or just something.Quote

Its silver not white.

Sadly even with all the power phases the bios needs work. Ive tested a lot of cheaper boards that out clocked and performed this.Quote

Looks white to me ! Weird

Yeah, one thing EVGA have never been fantastic with is bioses. Though Buildzoid did take apart one of their boards the other day and admitted it had the most outrageous overkill power phases he had ever seen. And expensive, too.Quote

I have an EVGA Z170 board and it's also a terrible overclocker.

I'd stay away in all honestyQuote

I really don't like EVGA's MBO design. They had few decent ones before, but now they look extremely cheep. Also they have issues all around. As Tom said, they need a bit of polish.Quote
