SuperMicro C7X99-OCE Review

5 min read

When it comes to building your dream setup, be it for overclocking or anything else, you really want to pick the best component out of the bunch. While there isn’t anything best in the industry per se, there are some which stand out from the rest. One such motherboard meant for overclocking is from the dungeons of Supermicro. Now Supermicro isn’t the common brand when it comes to mainstream motherboards but they are not complete beginners also. They specialize in Server system motherboards and supercomputing servers. overclocking is a relatively new section for them and Supermicro promises server quality build and components for the board.

Today we’ll be taking a look at Supermicro C7X99-OCE motherboard and we’ll be putting it through the gauntlet and test its capabilities.

Product Overview

Even though this is our first time laying our eyes and hands on a Supermicro board, it was a pleasant surprise to see the company straying away from their usual color schemes to signify the difference between their usual boards and the C7X99-OCE. The board itself has a base shade of black while the PCI-e and DIMM slots are black and blue-colored. The heatsink maintains a surprisingly low-profile and to finish the overview, it looks neat and clean. Pretty decent for a motherboard aimed towards the overclockers and to an extent gamers too, providing them with Multi-GPU compatibility and enough memory allocation to allow medium scale rendering and workstation usage.
