ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe H67 mITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What was the first thing they made after the wheel was invented? I am not sure about what Wikipedia has to say, but to the best of my understanding, it was probably my friend's old school Mazda -- which finally decided to kick the bucket a few weeks ago. To commemorate its death after years of unfaithful service, I decided to poke some fun at him, and brought him to the local junkyard -- also known as a Hyundai dealership -- to check out what the future has in store for him. When I sat down inside the brand new 2011 Elantra parked inside the showroom after gawking at its obnoxiously overdone and fundamentally awkward interpretation of the company's "fluidic sculpture" theme, a pretty female salesperson about our age (I'm 20) walked over and greeted us. She highlighted a few features of the car, and then allowed us to explore on our own. Right after she turned around, I got out of the driver's seat, and leaned over to my friend, who was standing outside. "I think I like the girl more", I said. My friend nodded in agreement. "Yeah, she's prettier than anything around here." (His sister, on the other hand, wasn't very pleased.) My point is, despite the fact there is usually nothing good inside a Hyundai dealership, there can be exceptions. There can be surprises. In the same way, when is the last time you've looked at some compact mini-ITX PC and thought to yourself, "This thing must be one underpowered computer for people who don't care about performance?" Well, as the old saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. If it has an ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe mITX motherboard under the hood, then don't pee your pants when it smokes the riced out full tower PC next to it. Featuring a standard LGA 1155 socket for the latest Intel Sandy Bridge processors, a PCI Express x16 slot to accommodate the graphics card of your choice, what we have here is some serious awesomeness in a very compact package. Ready to find out more? Let's roll.

GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the areas that many of us (myself included) want to know about when purchasing a shiny new motherboard, is the overclocking potential. Well I'm here to tell you, the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 has plenty! I was able to bring the Intel Core i5 2500K to a new high with the P67A-UD7-B3. Enabling the Internal PLL Voltage and Level 10 Load-Line calibration to reduce the V-Droop we were able to bring our Intel Core i5 2500K to 5141MHz. That is nearly 100MHz better than we have been able to achieve previously..."

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3: Z68 Chipset With Smart Response
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 motherboard has an MSRP of $370, about $20 more than the P67A-UD7 when it was launched. This is expected because of the more expensive chipset and the extra features that come with the motherboard. It will be the users' choice between the P67A-UD7-B3 or the Z68X-UD7-B3 motherboards depending on the features that they will need.

The P67A-GD80
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"MSI continues to impress us with the amount of custom features and applications they bundle with their products. The P67A-GD80 proved to be a supreme overclocker with almost unlimited possibilities for enthusiasts who like to tweak with voltages and test the stability of their entire system. The addition of "military-grade" components is a great feature to build a marketing campaign around, and the fact that it also improves the stability and efficiency of the P67A-GD80 just gives MSI and this motherboard more street credit than ever before."

Installing a Server OS in Intel Media Series Motherboards Guide
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having seen Missing Remote’s reviews of the Intel Media Series motherboards it should be clear that they provide a solid foundation for a home theater PC (HTPC) build, but because they also include Intel NICs (network interface controller) there is a strong case to use one for your next server build as well. Unfortunately, Intel does not support server operating systems (OS) like Windows 2008 R2 (W2K8R2), which provides the foundation for Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS), so the installation process is more involved than it should be.

MSI Z68A-GD80
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the MSI Z68A GD80 is in reality the same as overclocking the MSI P67A GD65. The same tools are used and in the end I came up with a slightly better overclock than I did on the P67A GD65 (by about 80MHz). To get to this level I worked exclusively in the Click BIOS and made adjustments to the CPU core voltage, memory voltage and for the most part, left the balance of the voltages on auto. When I did this though, I found that at the maximum clock speed the CPU would start throttling. By adjusting the "Long Duration power limit" from 95 to 110 I was able to eliminate the throttling. This gave me a good 4.96GHz clock speed that proves stable when the CPU is kept cool enough."

ECS H67H2-M & H67H2-I
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In terms of performance, the H67 boards are going to offer a performance envelope that is almost identical from board to board when you have the same components installed. That was proved out by how close the performance was between the three boards in this comparison. When performance is the same across a platform then all that is left is the feature set and cost. In terms of price, the ECS Black Series H67H2-M comes in at the upper end of the pricing spectrum at $139. Not the highest price I have seen for an H67 board but at the upper end. For that $139 price point you get a full featured motherboard with many enthusiast level parts."

Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB DDR3 RAM
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you still remember the days when Intel's Pentium 4 was duking it out with AMD's Athlon 64, almost every enthusiast owned an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro, having 1GB of RAM was the gold standard, and 160GB hard drives were considered high end? As vivid as it could be in my mind, I still recall configuring my dream computer at my favorite online retailer -- clicking and adding things to the shopping cart, changing and subtracting components repeatedly -- on items I could only, well, dream of owning at the time. Those were also the days when there were only two brands of RAM you should consider if you wanted the best of the best: Kingston HyperX, and Corsair XMS. It wasn't until after that manufacturers like OCZ, G.SKILL, and Patriot took the enthusiast market by storm, and suddenly performance memory became everyone's object of desire. Fast forward to 2011, after owning dozens of kits from pretty much every major manufacturer you could name, somehow by chance no Kingston RAM has ever made it into any of my computers. But regardless of which, the HyperX brand has always held a special place in my heart as a signature of elite performance and quality. Is the original pioneer (Or at least, one of the first) of high performance enthusiast RAM really still the brand to buy? We plugged a Kingston HyperX Grey Series KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB dual channel kit into our labs, gave it a close look, and ran it through our standard series of tests to compose our review today. Read on to find out what we have found!

COMPUTEX 2011 Video Coverage – GIGABYTE Unveils New AMD 990FX
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has been quiet for a little bit as INTEL rolled out their Z68 Series Boards. But now it’s time for AMD to make a little noise of their own. GIGABYTE’s Colin Brix takes us through their new AMD 990FX motherboards which supports all of Bulldozer’s 8-Cores on the new AM3+ socket. We talk specifically about their GA-990FXA-UD7 and the new GA-A75-UD4H Llano platform based on the L2 socket and A75 processor.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 Motherboard
     Tue, Jun 14 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If the lack of support for integrated graphics doesn't bother you, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 is a good and promising choice. It stands out among typical mid-end solutions by having richer functionality (two USB 3.0 and two additional SATA 6Gbps controllers), comes with a lot of software utilities, and you don't have to pay for extra hardware features you might not need. Also, the Touch BIOS adds nice variety to all those implementations of UEFI."

Zotac H55ITX-C-E Motherboard
     Mon, Jun 13 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot of us "Modders" like to use small compact hardware configurations when it comes time to build that next great mod. For the longest time, there was only a few options that would even be considered for such a build. In the last few years though, this has changed drastically. Not only can you go small, but you can go small with some powerful hardware.

Asus P8P67 EVO @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jun 13 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a car guy when I first saw the P8P67 EVO from Asus I couldn’t help connect the EVO name with a Mitsubishi Evo. I can’t imagine that Asus would somehow manage to get the boxy styling and sharp lines of the Lancer Evo, but maybe it has the raw power that the Evo is known for. Either way, I know that by the end of this review I will be drifting sideways in DIRT 2 ether way. Before that I will go over ASUS’s standard P67 product lineup and the P8P67 EVO’s feature set. While we are in there we will also test its performance and take a close look at the include software.

TechwareLabs Review: Sapphire Pure Fusion Mini E350
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 8:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire is the first to utilize AMD`s E350 (Zacate) APU - a combination of CPU and GPU computing technologies onto a single die, and AMD`s answer to Intel`s Sandy Bridge graphics integration. The form factor is a power-saving mini-ATX, dubbed Pure Fusion Mini E350. Does it stack up against Intel`s offerings?"

ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 10:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hitting the near top of the Z68 lineup is the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe motherboard. The P8Z68 Deluxe board is setup for the high performance user that requires more connectivity. Hardware features of the Deluxe motherboard include an LGA1155 socket for the newest Sandy Bridge processors. The Z68 Express Chipset supports up to 32GB of DDR3 with a max speed of 2200MHz with overclocked settings. There is support for both AMD and NVIDIAs Quad-GPU technology. The Virtu software allows virtual use of the Intel Accelerated HD Graphics loaded into the Sandy Bridge processors. However, because of no display connectivity on the back panel of the P8Z68 Deluxe, only d-MODE can be utilized."

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.
