ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Benchmark Performance @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 4:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of the first member of the new Cougar Point chipset family, the Z77 Express, happened several weeks before the availability of the Sandy BridgeCPUs they were designed for. This led to review sites having to test new chipsets with older Sandy Bridge processors. While Z77 motherboards are perfectly capable of running Sandy Bridge CPUs, they`re really designed to showcase Ivy Bridge. Now that Benchmark Reviews actually has a Core i7-3770K CPU in hand, we can show you how it performs in ASUS` new P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard, a top-of-the-line product with so many features it`s hard to keep track of them all."

Asus Sabertooth X79 Mainboard Review
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A mainboard with rich accessories bundle, convenient layout, extensive functionality and 5-year warranty cannot be bad by definition. However, it is only a few small steps away from being named an absolute ideal.

     Tue, May 01 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the ASUS Maximus V GENE Z77 Motherboard. a smaller motherboard (mATX) yet a product that just oozes with dandy features and overclock potential. Next to the tweaking possibilities this is a ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard, and means extra enthusiast features alright.

     Tue, May 01 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the second part of these series we`ve shown you the manufacturing of Besis ROG PC. For this he needed an aluminium body to which numerous red fins, made from acrylic glass, are attached. These give the case an aerodynamic shape and allow good visibility to the hardware. In this part of the series we`re going to show you with a lot of pictures how the thing is assembled and in the end there will be some shots where you see some very nice picture of the completed project."

Intel DZ77GA-70K & Panther Point Chipset Preview @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:31P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has officially announced their newest chipset for socket 1155, the Z77. With H61, H67, P67, and Z68 chipsets still on the market, it may seem bewildering that Intel would introduce yet another beast to the field. In addition, Z77 is one of six new chipsets introduced in Intel`s new 7 series chipset, Panther Point. What does the Panther have to offer that its predecessors did not? Though Intel may have just announced Z77, we`ve had our hands on sample boards for the past several weeks, putting them to the LanOC test, and we can finally share what we`ve found. We`ll start with Intel`s own Z77 board, the DZ77GA-70K as well as coverage of the Panther Point chipsets."

Questions will surely arise, can ASRock extend their prowess with this new chipset; will the new Z77 Extreme4 handle Ivy Bridge well? We are here to answer all of your questions, so let`s waste no further time and begin our analysis of Z77 Extreme4."

Intel Z77 Motherboard Round-up: Asrock, ECS, Gigabyte & Intel
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel's die shrink of Sandy Bridge isn't due until next week (Monday, rumors say), the company has long shipped Ivy Bridge's accompanying chipsets. It might seem odd to jump the gun on "next-gen" motherboards, but 7-series platforms are backwards compatible with Sandy Bridge processors, so users have actually been able to buy a Z77 motherboard and use it for a few weeks without Ivy Bridge. After surveying Panther Point's spec sheet, we're itching to get a little more hands-on. Fortunately, we have four new Z77 motherboards in the shop and begging for attention, including the Asrock Z77 Extreme6, ECS Z77H2-AX, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB and Intel DZ77GA-70K.

Pure Black X79N
     Sun, Apr 29 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire enters the Intel X79 motherboard fray in a big way with its $499 beast, the Pure Black X79N. Despite the name, the board is more brown in color but it doesn't pull any punches with its feature set. On the other hand, it will prove to be quite an elusive beast, but does good performance escape Sapphire's X79 offering? Hit our review to find out!

Posted by: STAFF
With the release of Intels X79 chipset and new 2011 socket it was only a matter of time before we saw Motherboards aimed at the gamer.X79 brings Quad Channel memory architecture and PCI 3.0 supporting the RAM and Video Cards respectively. Finally we get to take a look at the infamous ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Motherboard with the new X79 Chipset. The new X79 chipset brings PCI3.0 and Quad Channel Ram onto the Intel market. PCI3.0 is aimed squarely at gamers because of its throughput for the latest high end GPUs and this board has 4x of them. Fatal1ty has always been aimed at the power-user and gamer and they have (seemingly) not disappointed at first glance.All of thisleaves us excited to get our hands on the board. ASRock has given us this boiled down spec sheet which leaveus drooling..."

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 27 2012 | 7:32A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Z77 boards come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prices. Just about every manufacture has a whole lineup of boards covering the whole range to make sure you can find what you are looking for. Gigabyte is no different; they have a whole selection of boards that will fit your needs. Today we are taking a look at their Z77X-UD3H, one of their budget boards. It may not be a high end board but it is still packed with features. I am curious how it will perform now that the cat is out of the bag with Ivy Bridge. Let?s jump in and see what it?s all about."
