Overall Score 4.5  

Surprisingly, no HDMI 2.0 but 4 Phase PWM, a 10 Layer PCB, Onboard Power, Reset, and finally an M.2 interface. EVGA have opted for the Intel NIC, no KillerLAN here, but we trust the Intel LAN, it works just fine.

We are liking the individually wrapped accessories, it is a quality touch from EVGA and should help maintain the condition of the parts until you get them installed.
