intel H81 chipset motherboards
     Sat, Mar 28 2015 | 3:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: The eight boards tested in this article are completely interchangeable upon the first look, but from our inventory and tests is appears there is plenty to choose. In the four cheapest boards it's easy to appoint a favourite, the MSI H81M-E34. This board is the only board that offers two digital monitor-connectors and is also the only one to offer extra USB 3.0 connectors, including internally. Of the more luxurious motherboards the ASRock H81m and Gigabyte H81M-HD3 leave the best impression.

     Thu, Mar 26 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From motherboards sporting M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 slots to others with support for a ridiculous amount of SATA ports, ASRock has jumped into the fast lane in the past few years with great motherboards that feature great connectivity options when it comes to fast storage. One of their latest Intel X99 boards proves to be no different. Today we are going to take a close look at a newly released workstation/server motherboard of theirs that continues to impress, the ASRock X99 WS-E. Best of all, this board will now be the heart of our new enterprise review bench!

ASUS X99-A Motherboard Review
     Wed, Mar 25 2015 | 12:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ASUS has a pretty complete line of X99 motherboards. There are a total of 8 motherboards currently in their X99 lineup and they range from sub-$300 boards to the super high-end of almost $500! With so many different boards it might be confusing, but today we will be taking a look at ASUS’s most entry-level X99 motherboard. This motherboard will get you on to the X99 platformfor under $300. The motherboard we are talking about is the X99-A and while it is ASUS’s entry-level X99 motherboard it has many great features you just won’t find on other motherboards out there. The board features ASUS’s patent pending OC socket, ASUS’s Dual Intelligent Processors 5, ASUS’s Crystal Sound 2 audio solution, a 32Gb/s M.2 x4 slot, and much more. Will this be the motherboard for your X99 build? Read on as we find out!"

ECS Z97-MACHINE
     Mon, Mar 23 2015 | 12:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As always, moving on to the overclocking section is fun. While I don't have a great 4770K to test with (the highest I ever get seems to be 4.4GHz regardless of the board) the ECS Z97-MACHINE managed to max my highest overclock and I literally had to change two settings to get there. The voltage offset for the CPU was set to +100 mV and the CPU ratio was cranked to 44. Bam! 4.4GHz rock solid in every test I could think of. I did try to push for 4.5GHz but this poor chip just fails at the silicon lottery. Because overclocking was so simple I was hoping for pushing the CPU a little further, but no amount of tweaking would get it to reliably run at full load at 4.5GHz even when cranking back the memory speed. Oh, did I not mention that? The XMP timings were 100% stable even at 4.4 GHz. Quite impressive for an inexpensive board!”

Asus X99 Deluxe Motherboard Review
     Fri, Mar 20 2015 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Haswell-E Core i7 5960X is an all-round powerhouse, there’s no question about that. But a powerful chip is only a portion of the battle – an accompanying motherboard and high-speed RAM are essential in exploiting the processor’s dizzying multi-core performance. Enter Asus’ showcase motherboard for the latest HEDT chipset – the X99 Deluxe. Packed to the brim with a variety of overclocking, general usage, and connectivity features, can the Asus X99 Deluxe show us exactly how the six- and eight-core Haswell-E chips should be partnered?

MSI X99S Gaming 7 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Mar 20 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the X99 platform and its plentiful PCIe connectivity form a strong gaming foundation, the cost of an LGA2011-3 motherboard, DDR4 memory, and the Haswell-E CPU will put a considerable dent in any buyer’s pocket. So when we see a gaming-orientated motherboard offering 3-way graphics capability, eight-core CPU support, and an enhanced audio solution, features take precedence and make the HEDT platform seem a more alluring investment. Hitting the entry-level cohort of X99's product range, can MSI’s £200 X99S Gaming 7 prove that the HEDT platform’s motherboard is at least one area where money can be saved?

GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion motherboard

GIGABYTE's X99-SOC Champion seems to have everything it takes to become a legendary motherboard. It has high end overclocking built into its bones and a low price but will that lead to success?

Phanteks has introduced a budget Mini-ITX case that is named Enthoo Evolv ITX. This is a nod to its heritage as the design is based on the mATX Enthoo Evolv however the construction is steel with a plastic front panel, where the original Evolv used aluminium panels to cover the steel chassis.

ASUS X99-A motherboard

Posted by: STAFF
An affordable price and great features aren't typically combined on X99 motherboards but ASUS' X99-A offers both in a package that looks great and overclocks Haswell-E processors well.

ASUS Crossblade Ranger (FM2+) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 19 2015 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time ASUS released a Republic of Gamers series motherboard for an AMD platform was way back in late 2011. The motherboard in question was the ASUS Crosshair V Formula which ASUS have since refurbished and re-released as the Crosshair V Formula-Z. The key theme with ASUS ROG motherboards for AMD platforms is that they have never been produced for AMD’s APU platforms, until now. In a somewhat surprising move in August of this year ASUS announced their first ROG motherboard for AMD’s A-Series platform; to be called the Crossblade Ranger.

Intel NUC 5I3RYH (DinoPC) review

If you take a look at our review of Gigabyte BRIX S you will pretty much have the low-down on the latest version of Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing). DinoPC sent us a mini PC that uses NUC5i3RYH that is built around a Core i3-5010U, which is a mobile Broadwell CPU.

ASUS X99 WS/IPMI Review @ ocaholic
     Tue, Mar 17 2015 | 11:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WS-X99/IPMI is a high-end workstation motherboard from ASUS. The product name already tells you, that this board supports the IPMI, which is an essential feature set regarding workstation and server products, since it allows for full remote management. Apart from that you get a completely reworked layout and lots of other features on top."

ASUS' Intel X99 line of motherboard
     Sat, Mar 14 2015 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Going into the review for the ASUS X99-A motherboard, I did not know what to expect because of its placement as a "base level" board. I can truly say that the only thing that is base level about the X99-A is its feature set. ASUS performed their normal amount of design magic with this board, transforming what could have been a meh-type product into a true powerhouse. The X99-A features a similar power delivery system and design ethos used in the higher end ASUS boards (read that as the X99-Deluxe or Rampage V Extreme), giving the board some teeth when running it in stock or overclocked modes. For all intensive purposes, the X99-A is an X99-Deluxe board without all the bells and whistles."

ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There doesn't seem to be much that I don't like about the mini ITX platform. I get everything I want and need and compact platform. Motherboard manufacturers have figured out how to pack all the power, performance, and features into a tiny little package. What isn't there to like about it? I have used the mini ITX platform for building NAS and compact file servers, but I never really considered using the platform for a gamer or daily use machine. ASRock thinks they can get me to turn to the Dark Side and leave my ATX, bigger is better, roots for their Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard and the ITX platform.

Gigabyte revision issue
     Tue, Mar 10 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In late December, we posted an article on Hardware.Info in which we detailed how motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte develops newer revisions of existing motherboards that offer less functionality and/or worse performance, despite being sold using the exact same product codes and EAN codes (bar codes). Because we live in a world where orders between webshops, distributors, importers, and manufacturers are automatically linked, this might very well result in you receiving a product that's different from what you actually thought you were purchasing. In our article, we used a Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 motherboard to prove that there are substantial differences between revisions, both with regard to visual and operational aspects. Gigabyte has up until now, despite many reminders, not yet sent us an official statement. However, it does appear that they were prompted to take action, as the motherboards that were covered in our article and by many other publications have suddenly received new names and new product codes…

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.
