MSI MEG Z390 Godlike Motherboard Review
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may seem a bit late to the Z390 party, especially since most of the guests have already gone home. However, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this MSI motherboard, so we’re just going to say it was fashionably late. As one of the most tricked-out motherboards this generation, this ultra-high-end solution comes with more features that I doubt even this review will be able to capture. It’s not cheap, but at the same time, you’re paying (a lot) more, but you’re getting a lot more stuff included too. It’s a bit more than your typical Fortnite 1080p gaming rig would need, that’s for sure, but if you’re all about the extreme, read on, as this one is going to be pretty special.

Today we test on OCinside.de with the ASRock B450M Steel Legend a really stylish Micro ATX motherboard for the current AMD Ryzen 2000 CPU series.

Today we have in our hands the newly released ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II (GL504GV). This gaming laptop is designed to satisfy those wanting a slice of mid-range action via Intel’s Core i7-8750H, 16GB DDR4 and the RTX 2060. ROG has also stepped away from the typical TN panel in favour of the superior 144Hz IPS display.

ASRock B450 Steel Legend Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 12 2019 | 6:32P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ASRock first introduced their Steel Legend motherboards back in January. This new series from ASRock is meant to give users great stability, a boatload of features, and a attractive design, all while keeping the price quite low. These boards feature ASRock’s “Full Spike” ESD protection for the USB, Ethernet, and audio ports, as well as utilize 60A power chokes and Nichicon 12K black capacitors. The board we are taking a look at today is the B450 Steel Legend which is an the ATX model out of the pair (B450M Steel Legend is M-ATX). As you can guess this board leverages the AMD B450 chipset and besides the features we already mentioned this board makes use of a 6-phase power design, has dual M.2 slots, USB 3.1 gen 2 support, has ASRock’s “Steel Slot” on the PCI-Express x16 slot, and of course you are getting RGB on the board too! With all of these features can you believe this board is just over $100?! Read on as we take a look!"

Gigabyte Z390 Designare Review: A Motherboard For Creative Pros
     Fri, Apr 12 2019 | 6:29P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to take a look at Gigabyte’s Z390 Designare motherboard, one of the company's more recent Socket 1151-based boards for Intel's 8th and 9th Generation Coffee Lake-based processors. This board has a lean and mean look about it, even menacing in a way, with its mostly black aesthetic with silver highlights scattered about. Its VRM heatsink even carries a yin-yang motif, with the black sink at the top and silver to the left of the CPU socket...

ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha
     Wed, Apr 10 2019 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD made a remarkably huge splash with its 2nd gen Ryzen parts. Next up were the Threadripper 2nd gen updates. There were rumors abound of all kinds of craziness going in at the time. When AMD dropped the new lineup including the 2990WX clocking in at 32 Cores and 64 Threads, everyone took notice. I think enthusiasts were probably one of the first to salivate at the thought of that many cores in a single consumer/prosumer HEDT CPU. Next up was the fact that TR4 supports the new chips with existing boards with just a BIOS update. Well, kinda as they will work but pushing 32 Cores on a VRM that was designed for 16 means there are some concessions. A little background to this story arrives with the appearance of my 2990WX CPU. I got the CPU in hand and slapped it into my reliable and trusty Gigabyte X399 Gaming 7 board which has run my 1950X without issue for the better part of a year I would say. Well long story, kinda short, the VRM when under render loads would escalate to over 110C in a matter of a minute or less and was simply not feasible for running this new chip. Enter ASUS as I reached out to them to see if they had a solution. Enter the Zenith Extreme Omega.

SuperO C9Z390-PGW Motherboard Review
     Tue, Apr 09 2019 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before we dive into the details, it is worth pointing out the ‘PG’ part of the model code stands for Pro Gaming yet most of the features seem to be derived from the workstation side of Supermicro’s portfolio. For starters you get a Broadcom PLX chip that supplies 32 lanes of PCI Express to the four graphics slots, however there is no support for SLI. When you turn to the I/O panel you will see a 10Gb Aquantia Ethernet adapter sitting alongside an Intel Gigabit port, which is a feature that screams ‘Workstation’ at the top of its voice. You will also find two DisplayPort connectors and one HDMI output which seems like a curious choice on a gaming motherboard. Don’t gamers typically use a graphics card?

Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Ultra Motherboard Review
     Tue, Mar 26 2019 | 2:06P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In Gigabyte’s AORUS line of Z390 motherboard there are actually eight total. Sitting right in the middle is the Z390 AORUS Ultra, which offers pretty every feature you would want in a Z390 motherboard, but also some nice extras. First you have that signature AORUS design with RGB lighting in multiple places on the board plus RGB headers. Then there is a 12+1 power phase design with some pretty beefy VRM cooling as well as three integrated M.2 heatsinks. Finally you have 802.11ac 2×2 WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.1 gen 2 support, an integrated I/O shield, and Gigabyte’s AMP-UP audio. Is this the motherboard you need for your Z390 build? Read on as we find out!"

ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) Z390 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Mar 25 2019 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Positioned towards the upper end of the Z390 market, ASUS is targeting deep-pocketed enthusiast gamers with its most affordable ATX ROG Maximus offering. Sporting features you’d expect from a premium Z390 offering, including dual heatsink-cooled M.2 slots and an eye-catching design, ASUS takes the standard ROG Maximus XI Hero and adds a 2×2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter. The aptly named ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) hits the shopping basket at around £280 – a territory that ensures stiff competition from ASRock’s Z390 Phantom Gaming flagship in addition to well-equipped Gigabyte and MSI offerings.
