Posted by: STAFF
"The MSI Z87-G43 motherboard is motherboard targeted at budget conscious individuals looking for a quality system board. The Z87-G43 comes with a wealth of features that are often pegged as being for mainstream or enthusiast level boards. These features include the UEFI Click BIOS 4, Military Class 4 components, 4K Display support, and multiple display outputs. Awhile the MSI Z87-G43 board is considered a budget board, the Military Class 4 components that the board is built with offer EMI, ESD, Humidity, and High temperatures protection. These components include super ferrite chokes and solid caps. There is one PCI-e 3.0 x16 slot to provide the fastest PCI-e interface currently available.

MSI Z87 XPOWER Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 6:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 XPOWER is the flagship mainboard from MSI`s Intel 8-series motherboard line. The Z87 XPOWER sports the MSI Lightning color scheme and is designed primarily for overclocking purposes although it also boasts a staggering list of non-OC related features as expected from a mainboard of its price and caliber. Sporting an XL-ATX form factor at 34.5cm x 26.4cm, the MSI Z87 XPOWER is packed with onboard OC functions and an impressive 4-way 8x/8x/8x/8x SLI/CFX support via a PLX PEX8747 chip. The Z87 XPOWER uses Military Class IV components and 32-phase IR3550 ICs on an 8-layer PCB for a highly efficient and stable overclocking performance. Just like the MSI MPOWER MAX, the Z87 XPOWER uses Qualcomm Killer E2200 for low-ping managed network traffic and a Realtek ALC1150 codec with TI OPA1652 amp for high-quality audio which is isolated for minimized interference./"

ASUS ROG Maximus VI Extreme Review
     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 5:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look at the performance delivered by the Maximus VI Extreme at stock speeds, it is going to deliver performance within a few percentage points across the entire test suite. Really there were no surprises here with the stock performance. When overclocked, the M6E delivered performance increases across the board making for a truly inspired performance. On this board I was able to eek out another 50MHz of bench stable performance out of my 4770K thanks to the flexibility and the granularity of the voltage options in the Crash Free BIOS BIOS at up to 4749MHz by manually tweaking many of the options, even though the auto rules for all three of the Level Up options are robust enough to get clock speed levels of 4.2, 4.4, and 4.6GHz stable as long as your chip can run the number. If manually tweaking is not your strong suite, you have the previously mentioned Level Up feature in the BIOS as well as the 4-Way optimization tool in AISuite III."

Posted by: STAFF
Today, we got our first look at a motherboard strictly for the Intel Haswell processors using Intel`s newest socket 1150 platform. The motherboard would be the Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H.

MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX Review
     Sun, Aug 18 2013 | 6:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as overclocking goes I was happy with what the Z87 MPOWER MAX had to offer as far as tuning and how well the basic tuning of the board was setup. Once you get past setting up the peripherals, memory timings. and voltage. there are only a few settings needed to run the numbers. I was able to max out my 4770K in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes and was able to run it with a lower applied voltage than used on several of the previous boards I have tested. Overclocking my G.Skill DDR3 2400MHz modules to over 2600MHz was just as easy on this board as on the M6H and Z87-GD65. Adjust the timings and voltage, apply the clock speed, and go is all it took."
