If you want some good kit-cooling and have a decent budget, make sure you follow along to see the candidates.

EVGA X99 Classified motherboard @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA is one of those brands we have all seen come up and become a very strong force in the graphics card market and even motherboards. Their history is a bit of a roller coaster ride starting with NF series Nvidia chipset boards which no doubt had their fair share of issues finally eclipsing with the 790i which thankfully is when EVGA was able to offer intel chipset boards. With that they also picked up Peter Tan AKA Shamino and his engineering and overclocking knowledge made for some real magic with the X58 Classified among a few other boards, but a short while later Peter left and wound up at ASUS and EVGA boards showed this as feature sets and even performance suffered, but EVGA trudged through the tough times and looking at what we have here today they are all the better for it. I have a belief that you can tell a lot about a manufacturer not by how they do when everything is going well but by how they push through and never give up when things are hard. The board we have here today is the X99 Classified and this at the time of writing is the top X99 based motherboard model EVGA offers. "

ASUS Maximus VII Impact mITX Intel Z97 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I have a chance to look at and play with the latest small form factor motherboard from ASUS, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus VII Impact mITX Intel Z97 motherboard. The Maximus VII Impact may be tiny, but it packs a lot of features into that small footprint. The Maximus VII Impact is designed for the latest processors in the LGA1150 package, like the Intel Core i7-4790K Devils Canyon processor. Though it will certainly work with other LGA 1150 processors, your best bet is going to be an unlocked K-series processor for some overclocking fun! Right now the ASUS Maximus VII Impact mITX motherboard can be found for only $229.99, when you find out more about the Impact, you?ll see it?s worth it in features alone!"

ALIEN UNBOXING: Intel Core i7 8-Core Extreme Edition
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can imagine, we tend to get a lot of boxes here at Hot Hardware. Some packages are small, some larger, some fancy, some pretty ho-hum. Intel shipped us a package this week. It came in a typical, brown cardboard box. However, inside that box was something more than a little flashy (it flashed us quite a bit actually), it was downright freaky...

     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 6:14A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
