ASUS Strix Pro Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 1:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Strix Pro, ASUS has added a new gaming headset to its portfolio. At a first glance you get a flashy design and checking the specifications we find that the manufacturer is using 60 millimeter drivers. Apart from that there is a noise-cancelling feature. Overall this sounds like the Strix Pro is definitely worth having a closer look."

ASUS Maximus VII Impact Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 10:41A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Maximus VII Impact is ASUS` latest Intel Z97 motherboard which targets enthusiasts and gamers who require small form factor. This Mini-ITX motherboard is packed with innovative features which can be found on full-sized ROG motherboards. Impact features five exclusively designed vertical `daughterboards` that provide power, sound, fan control, WiFi/SSD, ROG IO buttons - so even though there may not be a lot of space on board itself, these features are still included."

ASUS RAMPAGE V Extreme review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Nov 26 2014 | 1:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
X99 has been around a bit now and the next board to hit our bench is what we have here today and it is no joke as it is the Rampage V Extreme or what many hold as the benchmark for every other board in regards to top performance. This kind of legacy has been earned over years of having boards at the top rung of performance and at the bleeding edge of new features. Now lets hop in and see if the new Rampage V Extreme holds true to its lineage."

MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard Review: AM3+ Gets Something New for a Change!
     Wed, Nov 26 2014 | 10:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have no fear or qualms in recommending this board. Like any technological product, not everything is perfect, but the two issues I had with this board can either be fixed by a firmware update (the memory issue) or by a driver/software update (the front panel audio issue). One I know for a fact has been fixed and that particular firmware will be out in a couple of weeks. The other, I am unsure. I will keep users posted by updating this when I find out more. With that bit of nastiness out of the way, this is a really good board for the price."

MSI X99S MPower @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Nov 24 2014 | 2:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When shopping for a new motherboard Ive found that a lot of people tend to lean toward what you have had good experiences with in the past. For me I have a short list of companies that I tend to prefer in my personal rigs and MSI is on that list. When I covered the X99 launch I didnt have the chance to check out their X99 offerings but today I finally do. They sent over the X99S MPower. It isnt their highest end board but it is damn close. Now I can sit down and see how it compares to the competition. My previous experiences with MSI MPower boards have been good, but the X99 boards I have tested to date have been extremely good, will it be able to keep up? Lets find out."

     Thu, Nov 20 2014 | 10:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabytes Z97 motherboard line has been out for a while now, but they have recently introduced Black Editions to their Ultra Durable Z97 line. These motherboards include the Z97X-UD5H-Bk and Z97X-UD3H-BK. So what does the Black Edition mean?

During the 168 hour test, each motherboard needs to pass rigorous, full system validation testing for 1 full week. GIGABYTE has built a custom testing facility at their Taiwan (Nanping) factory. A Certificate of Validation is included with every board, issued by the GIGABYTE factory and signed by the manufacturing VP & GM to indicate that each board has passed their highest test standards. The really shows Gigabytes commitment to quality and ensures your Black Edition motherboard will last. Today we are taking a look at the Z97X-UD3H-BK that features 3-way CrossFire or 2-way SLI, SATA Express support, Intel Gigabit Ethernet, M.2 support and much more. Lets jump in!"

Gigabyte Z97N-Gaming 5 (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Nov 19 2014 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Z97 platform is a perfect basis for a mini-ITX system build as it features enough performance to please even the most demanding user while still being power efficient enough to be tamed by small form factor cases and modest cooling solutions. Due to those reasons it isn’t surprising to see Intel’s LGA 1150 platform dominate the mini-ITX landscape. Creating a mini-ITX motherboard from AMD’s AM3+ or Intel’s LGA 2011 platforms is unfeasible from a number of perspectives including heat and for LGA 2011, the size of the socket and number of memory lanes required. We have seen other mini-ITX motherboards emerge for low power platforms like Intel’s Bay Trail, AMD’s Kabini and AMD’s FM2+ APU platform but relatively speaking all three of these platforms cannot rival Intel’s LGA 1150 in terms of raw performance. In short, Intel’s mainstream LGA 1150 platform offers the best balance of features, performance, pricing and power efficiency for the mini-ITX form factor.

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.
