AORUS 200 Series Motherboards
     Thu, Jan 19 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to announce its new AORUS Gaming line of Motherboards which support Intel’s® 7th / 6th Gen Core processors. These motherboards, designed for enthusiast, allow for customization and personalization through unique features such as liquid cooling support, fully customizable RGB LEDs as well as a new and improved smart fan controls which are all meticulously incorporated into this platform to give gamers more control as well as the ability for them to express themselves.

For the past few years, gamers have been focused on the customization of their PC; AORUS Gaming Motherboards embodies that idea. AORUS is a premium gaming brand focused on customization and personalization for all users but most importantly gamers. Whether for an enthusiast, power-user, or a casual gamer, the AORUS motherboard is the perfect board for them.

“Personalization and customization is something we know our customers want, we recognize that because of all the different case mods we see using GIGABYTE motherboards,” said Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE’s Motherboard Business Unit. “Not only does this ideal stay true to GIGABYTE, but also with the AORUS brand, that is why we continually strive to make products that push the envelope—satisfying the consumers demand.”

7th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors Powered Motherboards

The AORUS Gaming Motherboards fully support the new Intel 7th Gen Core processors and is also compatible with previous 6th Gen Core Processors. With the new 7th Gen platform, AORUS Gaming Motherboards offer increased performance, rich & immersive experiences and versatile and fast I/O. G-Chill and G-Frost - Cool from Within

Exclusively on the Z270X-Gaming 9 and Z270X-Gaming 8 GIGABYTE has included integrated liquid cooling blocks. These water blocks, G-Chill and G-Frost from Bitspower and EK Waterblocks, respectively, can support both passive and active cooling. These AORUS Gaming Motherboards are ready for gamers to push the limits in performance especially with overclocking.

RGB Fusion – Lighting Your System the Way You Want

Express yourself with AORUS’ RGB Fusion, a totally redesigned lighting system that will allow users to customize their system lights to the way they want. With support for RGBW LED light strips, the AORUS Gaming Motherboards have millions of colors and combinations to choose from, making every system as unique as its owner. In addition to the white LED support on the LED pin headers, users can modify multiple sections and zones on their motherboards giving their system even more personality. Select models even have an Accent LED Overlay that can be swapped based on personal preference.

Smart Fan 5 – The Smart Way to Do Fan Control

Airflow is one of the most important elements of any PC and with Smart Fan 5 users and gamers alike can have full control of their system’s fans. With all fan headers now acting as Hybrid Fan Headers, DIY users do not need to confuse themselves as to which header does what, as all pin headers can automatically detect what type of device is connected.

To further support the various cooling options now available to users today specific fan headers support up to 2A of power for larger power hungry fans or pumps.

Since space within a chassis is limited AORUS’ Smart Fan 5 takes advantage of its powerful software to allow users to set fans to respond to thermal sources other than the factory default settings. With interchangeable thermal sensors cooling can be a breeze, select motherboards offer two additional thermistors to keep other components cool within the system.

AORUS Gaming Motherboards will debut at CES 2017. To find out other great features these boards have to offer be sure to follow GIGABYTE on social media.

XFX RX 460 4GB Slim @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jan 18 2017 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I bet a lot of you don’t even know it, but it really wasn’t all that long ago that single slot cards were all that was available. Now, though, even the low-end cards take up two slots with their coolers. That said, there are still reasons to need a single slot video card. Some cases will only support them, though that has gotten a lot better. Your configuration might not have any two slots together, or maybe you need to upgrade a small OEM build that was never built for having a dedicated card at all. No matter the reason, getting a single slot card can sometimes be hard, especially if you actually want good performance. Because of that XFX recently introduced their RX 460 Slim that is packed neatly into a single slot configuration and doesn’t need a power connection at all. So today I’m going to check out the card and then run it through our testing to see how it performs.

Intel SSD DC P3520 Series NVMe PCIe Enterprise Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Jan 18 2017 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months back, Intel updated its enterprise-class solid state storage line-up with a new series of NVMe-based drives – the DC P3520 series -- featuring IMFT 3D MLC NAND flash memory. Like some of its other high-end offerings, the drives featured Intel’s native NVMe PCI Express controller, but the use of more affordable 3D MLC NAND allowed Intel to reduce costs, while keeping endurance relatively high. Since some of the first consumer-class solid state drives hit the scene, Intel has been known to push the envelope in the space, and ultimately drive prices down. Intel did it somewhat recently with the SSD 750 series for desktops, which made high-speed NVMe PCIe storage much more attainable for the average enthusiast. And now with the Intel SSD DC P3520, the company is doing something similar in the enterprise storage space...
