Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Motherboard @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Jul 26 2013 | 8:27A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte has been making boards forever and honestly, it has been up and down along the cycle. It seems like every board manufacturer has its good and bad times, and Gigabyte seems to have been going through a bit of a rough patch. With that said, we must say that the Z87 Gigabyte has come out swinging and actually impressed us greatly. It has great aesthetics by offering various colors and designs even in their standard channel or mainstream offerings. Some of our previous suggestions seem to have been received, as they have improved upon their UEFI BIOS, as well as a few other things."

Corsair H100i Water Cooling System Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jul 26 2013 | 6:19A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not long ago we took a serious look at one of Corsairs most promising closed loop coolers, the H80i. It performed very well for a single 120mm radiator and left us wondering; if this is how well the H80i does, how will the H100i perform when it has an additional 120mm of rad space? Without further speculation, lets get down to business shall we and see if the H100i can stand with the exceptional, or if you should pass on this one."

ASUS Maximus V Formula ThunderFX ROG Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Thu, Jul 25 2013 | 4:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As part of the ROG series, the ASUS Maximus V Formula ThunderFX comes absolutely loaded for the most complete gaming and enthusiast experience possible. The ASUS Maximus V Formula leaves no aspect overlooked with the highest quality onboard components seen on a motherboard, and an audiophile class outboard sound card with headphone amp and multiple platform capabilities. At the heart of the Formula is the Z77 chipset, offering two each SATA 6G and 3G and four USB 3.0, with an ASMedia controller adding four additional SATA6G and USB 3.0 headers. The 8-Phase Extreme Digi II+ VRM gets a hybrid heatsink with heatpipe //and//liquid cooling capabilities to keep the board running cool. To further help this along, the Formula`s extremely rigid PCB is slightly oversized, allowing for better component spacing and heat dissipation. The Formula is 2-way SLI and 3-way CrossfireX ready, with PCIe slots spaced in order to give your multiple cards extra airflow. Should you be using the ThunderFX elsewhere, the Formula`s Supreme FX IV uses hyper-grounding along with audio specific ELNA caps to provide the best onboard audio that we have heard to date. The included mPCIe combo card comes with dual band WiFi/Bluetooth 4.0 preinstalled, and is ready to accept an mSATA component in the second slot. Rounding out the connectivity is an Intel Gigabyte LAN built onboard./"

Posted by: STAFF
About a week ago we posed a question whether Patriot is still good as a mid-end RAM manufacturer and got a positive answer given by an 8GB DDR3-2400 representative of Viper 3 series.
