 [LATEST]  Gigabyte 990FX Gaming Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a hardware reviewer it is difficult to get excited over old hardware and while my enthusiast roots cringe whenever anyone suggests an AMD build even though I know the CPU can play “some” of the latest titles and for the most part still very affordable.

MSI Gaming 3 and 4-way SLI Bridge Connector
     Fri, Jun 24 2016 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The add-on fan is a great idea that takes the often used trick of mounting a fan over your card(s) to cool multiple GPUs and makes it a part that is incorporated seamlessly into the package. I found that at stock speeds the benefit of this fan was less than the advertised 10% improvement. However, there is a benefit in every scenario I tested bar one. The target audience for these SLI bridges are the high-end gaming crowd who want to get that last FPS or visual quality setting just because... well they can. If you have the means to populate all of the slots on your high-end gaming rig, the additional coin for an SLI bridge kit such as the MSI Gaming SLI Bridge kit, then the added cost won't be an issue for you. Pricing currently sits in the $50-$53 range for each one of these kits, with the 4-Way kit at $53 and the 3-Way kit coming in at $49.99. Meant for use with MSI Gaming GTX 9xxx cards, I found it the 3-Way bridge worked well with my reference 7 series hardware without any issues setting up the configuration. After going through my testing, this kit does a great job building performance through the addition of multiple cards and cooling the cards once in place. If a 3-Way or 4-Way graphics solution is beyond your reach, MSI does offer its Gaming SLI bridge connections for a 2-Way setup. Go get you some!”

ASUS ROG STRIX X99 Gaming Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jun 15 2016 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Intel’s new range of Broadwell-E enthusiast grade CPUs now available, including the 10-core Core i7 6950X, it’s only fitting that motherboard vendors have refreshed ageing X99 portfolios. ASUS was quick off the mark releasing the X99-A II, X99-DELUXE II, Rampage V Edition 10 and ROG STRIX X99 Gaming. The latter motherboard represents the first time ASUS has combined its Republic of Gamers and STRIX product lines in an effort to streamline it’s gaming portfolio.

     Wed, Jun 01 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Small form factor systems are nothing new, we’ve seen them for a while now. One of the leaders in this area has to be Gigabyte with their BRIX systems. The BRIX systems are extremely small, yet offer great performance! Gigabyte makes all different types of BRIX kits for different situations. Gigabyte was showing off new models of the BRIX at CES in January with Intel 6th Generation Core “Skylake” processors and now we have one in the office to play with. It is the BSi7-6500, which features an Intel Core i7-6500U processor, Intel HD Graphics 520, 2x DDR3L SO-DIMM slots, 1x 2280 M.2 slot, WiFi, Bluetooth, and more! You get all of this in a form factor that is extremely small, the official dimensions of the unit are 34.4 mm x 112.6 mm x 119.4 mm! Let’s see what this new BRIX model is all about!"
