Supermicro C7X99-OCE (Intel X99) Motherboard Review
:“Supermicro puts its server quality strength into its design of the C7X99-OCE (Intel X99) motherboard. This is one for you to consider.”
Supermicro is a well-known company with a solid reputation for reliability and performance in the server ecosystem. Recently, Supermicro has brought to market a few consumer workstation boards that can overclock. The C7X99-OCE is one of these boards, and it is designed to fulfill the needs of consumers who need a server grade motherboard in a desktop or workstation. Supermicro is using their server design techniques and components to retrofit a single socket motherboard that supports both the Xeon and Core i7 families at the same time.
What is interesting about the C7X99-OCE is that it can also overclock. If you toss in a 5960X, the board will accept the CPU and unlock its overclocking features. The motherboard also features a UEFI with a GUI similar to that of the C7Z97-OCE board I reviewed a few months ago. So, let’s see what happens when you use server design practices on a motherboard designed to overclock.
