ASUS X99-E WS Motherboard
     Fri, Jan 30 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has many models of X99 shipping and one particular model that always interests me is the WS series of boards as they are tested to be enterprise class and then some with max capacity and normally extended connectivity along with component MTBF ratings that most desktop boards cannot even dream about. Today we have one of those very models based on LGA 2011-V3 based on the X99 chipset but it is considered a Server/Workstation product. This board boasts some really awesome slot lane allocations thanks to dual bridge chips and excellent overall component choice so lets dig in and see what we are getting.

Fatal1ty 990FX Killer Motherboard Review: The Last of Its Kind
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is an odd way to start the new year with a review of what many enthusiasts consider old technology (990FX mainboard) but the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer is an interesting and unique in that it incorporates many modern comforts not found on other 990FX mainboards. Plus, with the release of lower power 95W FX processors a few months ago, …

Biostar Hi-Fi Z97Z7 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Biostar Hi-Fi Z97Z7 has been touted as Biostar’s way of flirting with the idea of a high-end gaming motherboard and that is a weird description considering it is technically a budget Z97 motherboard price-wise.

MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aside from the obvious Wireless AC feature shared with its high-end OC series cousins, the MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC also features the most ambitious non-discrete front panel audio solution ever integrated into a motherboard.

Asus Rampage V Extreme Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the advent of the X99 Chipset from Intel, a bunch of new motherboards are needed to support this. Intel also released a revised Intel i7 CPUs to support this. Not only that but with the chipset and CPU releases, a new CPU socket was released at this same time; the LGA 2011-v3. While most manufacturers have the elite line of high kit, there is probably no better known range than the Rampage series.

Rampage V Extreme
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage V Extreme is ASUS' premier product for their ROG (Republic of Gamers) line of Intel X99-based motherboards. The board offers support for all Intel LGA2011-3 based processors paired with DDR4 memory operating in up to a quad channel configuration. Given the feature-packed nature and premium ROG board-branding, the board's $499.99 MSRP does not come at that much of a surprise.

Asus X99 Deluxe @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We can’t very well look at the i7-5960X from Intel and not do a motherboard along with it right? As the first of what expect to me a list of X99 motherboards I will be covering, I wanted to put the Asus to use first simply because they are always reliable and the software is perfect for keeping an eye on things when benchmarking the CPU. After I was done digging into the CPU I circled back around to take a closer look at the Asus X99 Deluxe. The name is simpler than a lot of the board I have tested recently and Asus went a little ham and changed up a lot with the new design. Let’s see what all changed, beyond the new white styling.

Gigabyte Z97-D3H Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, for $118 it is a very solid offering considering it manages to provide M.2 and SATA Express options for an entry level Z97 board while having an excellent overclocking-oriented UEFI albeit non-noob friendly with its lack of warning or voltage guidelines.

Intel Z97 Motherboard Roundup
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Codenamed 'Wildcat Point', the Z97 chipset brings support for future Broadwell CPUs, along with SATA Express and the M.2 socket. With over 90 designs available right now, picking the right one can be a difficult decision. Hoping to narrow the search down, we have taken seven popular boards and compared them in every way possible.

ECS Deluxe Z97-PK
     Wed, Jan 21 2015 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Personally, I feel this board, the ECS Z97-PK along with a G3258 processor is a great entry level system that is both affordable and stacks up decent performance especially in games. No it's not the fastest thing on the market, but it doesn't always have to be. You can play decent games at decent settings letting you at least have a setup. I'm not saying this has to be a "starter" system either, it could just be your main system. Though it's a bit harder to argue the price having known it was an amazingly priced combo for a few days – that was a serious deal. At these costs ~$140 for the ECS Z97-PK and G3258 it's a little harder to "sell". It is still only a Dual Core (don't get me wrong, a Dual Core can be a beast), but it is about impossible to get an i3 or an i5 at a similar cost.”

MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jan 20 2015 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Want to build a gaming system on a budget? Then you have to know where to spend your money to get the best bang for the buck. It’s always tempting to go for the flashy, high end motherboards with tons of extra features, but you may find that those extra features don’t buy you much in the way of extra performance. Micro Star International has sent Benchmark Reviews their MSI 970 Gaming motherboard, claiming they’ve gone beyond the specifications of the AMD 970 chipset. What kind of basis does this make for a gaming rig? Let’s find out.

MSI Z97 XPower AC LGA 1150 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jan 20 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's Z97 XPower AC is one of its flagship LGA 1150 motherboards and is specifically designed for the overclocking enthusiast. It carries a huge list of features, a rich bundle of accessories, and and a rich price tag as well at $379. Is the Z97 XPower AC actually worth that? We wondered the same thing.

Intel Core i7 5960X “Haswell-E” Processor Review Featuring The Gigabyte X99 Gami
     Tue, Jan 20 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Core i7 5960X, codename Haswell-E, is probably 2014's worst kept secret. As I am writing this review the full specifications, pricing and pictures of just about every X99 board in existence have already been made public and the NDA is still a few days off. Product launches like this make me wonder what purpose NDAs even serve when they appear to not be worth the paper they are written on. Anyway, politics aside, today we can present your our Intel Core i7 5960X review – at least pretend to be surprised! Intel’s High End Desktop Platform is about to get its first core upgrade since the transition from X48 to X58 when Intel made the leap from 4 to 6 cores, that occurred in 2010. Nearly 4 years later and Intel’s HEDT is making the shift from 6 cores to 8 cores with Haswell-E. What’s special about Haswell-E apart from the increased core count? Well the X99 platform Haswell-E brings support for DDR4, SATA Express and M.2 (just like Z97 offers), up to 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes and of course 8 core CPUs. If you’re in the market for an upgrade this certainly isn’t going to be cheap, new memory, new storage drives, a new CPU, probably a new power supply…..but I digress. Let’s dive straight into the goodness of the Core i7 5960X. Today we are chucking it on a brand new test system, powered by Gigabyte’s X99 Gaming 5 X99 motherboard and 32GB of Crucial’s fresh-off-the-production line DDR4-2133.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
