EVGA X99 CLASSIFIED CREATIVE AUDIO DRIVER
In this case the easy is easy to EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio, because the name is plastered in huge letters across the front of the box. On the back there is a small specification listing as well as a key features list. There are photos of the board itself from two different angles as well as a screenshot of the UEFI. Inside the box, a huge pile of accessories and all of the documentation greet you right away.
They also put the name of each accessories right on the label should you EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio what something is. They are all black, so they have that going for them, otherwise it would be nice if they included one for every connection. Unlike Asus though, the panel is all metal. I like the idea of this because not only does it clean up the look of the board a little, but it is also a little extra protection for your rear audio plugs as well.
The smaller bundle of EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio on the right in the picture below is actual a Probelt cable that is used for checking voltages on your motherboard with a multimeter. I was recently trying to double check a voltage on our video card test bench and the board uses small pads that you touch to get a reading. Those small pads are hard to keep your meter on, especially when you look away to check the reading. This little bundle of wires has special connections on the end that are designed for your multimeter, the other end plugs directly into the board.
I EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio all three of the SLI bridges they include with the Classified. With a lot of manufactures, they save money here and go with that ugly bronze color but EVGA has always included all black bridges to match their boards. The longer cables are GPU Link cables. There are just small double pin cables that you hook up to your EVGA video card and then to the motherboard to allow you to tweak the video card in the BIOS along with your motherboard settings. With this being such a high end board I was really expecting something special here, especially considering EVGAs attention to detail when it came to things like the SLI bridges. The only reason I can see them not going with that is because this board is focused more towards the overclocking market EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio will be running it on a testbench.

The one thing I do miss are the real tower style heatsinks used to cool the motherboard down along with the glowing logos. EVGA still fit their logo in with an extremely large anodized red E on top of the chipset cooler. Beyond the red in the logo the rest of the board is completely blacked out. As I mentioned the cooling design has changed a lot over the years from the original Classified. In fact I think they are both great in their own ways. The X99 Classified has a low profile black EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio that runs next to and under your video cards. The heatsink under the E is a wedge design with a few fins across the top. What was interesting to me is that this is all of the cooling where the Asus board had four heatsinks. I know that more of the heat has been moved to the CPU with voltage control being moved there, so there is less of a need for motherboard cooling.
But being an overclocking focused board I expect a little more excessiveness when it came to the cooling. Less because it is needed and more because that is what you typically see. In the end, if It works that is all that matters!

EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio above the heatink on the top you have two eight ping CPU power connections. You only need to run one, but the second will provide extra power when overclocking. The top right has more going on than the left side did. The second half of the DDR4 DIMMs are here making a total of 8 with a max capacity of when ram capacities increase in the next year or so. Next the tiny red button is the CMOS reset, it is a little closer to the power button than I would prefer though.
Next is a second 4 pin PWM fan header. Then you have power and reset buttons that light up when the power is on. The reset button lights up when your hard drive or SSD is being accessed. Next is the Turbo switch. We are going to do this using both EVGA X99 Classified Creative Audio and qualitative analysis, since sound quality isn't really something that can be adequately explained with only numbers.
To do this we have turned to the RightMark Audio Analyzer, basically the standard application for this type of testing. Since all the three motherboards support very high quality bit, kHz audio playback we selected that as the sample mode option. Basically, what this test does is pipe the audio signal from the front-channel output to the line-in input via a 3. Obviously we disabled all software enhancements since they interfere with the pure technical performance that we are trying to benchmark. They said there is a know issue with Surround Sound.
