     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink

Since fourth generation Intel Core processors require a different socket, we tested a large number of new Haswell-compatible motherboards. We tested everything from compact boards, very basic boards all the way up to the most high-end ATX motherboards for overclockers and gamers. The new generation has some interesting new features such as Thunderbolt and high-quality integrated audio, and the BIOSes from the different brands have received some major updates as well.

GIGABYTE Z87-D3HP Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 3:56A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE`s Z87-D3HP will surprise many because it looks more expensive than it actually is. Many lower-end motherboards tend to cut back not only on features but also aesthetics but D3HP still oozes the quality of a higher-end model with its sleek matt black PCB and gun metal heatsinks. Ultra Durable 5 Plus comes as standard on this motherboard so consumers needn`t worry about the quality either. Can this really be too good to be true? Let`s find out!"

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we trundle through the stack of Z87 boards we have for review, we find ourselves picking up the Z87X-UD3H and chucking it onto the test bench, but not before taking a look at what Gigabyte offer with it in terms of design, specifications and added accessories that are bundled in. Now we're not expecting too much from the UD3H as it is at the lower-end of the scale but still has some high quality features in terms of SLI/CrossFire support, DualBIOS, USB 3.0 connectivity and even some features aimed at those wishing to dabble in overclocking. Couple the overclocking features with the Ultra Durable technology and sufficient sized heatsinks, and we may be pleasantly surprised by the UD3H and what it has to offer in terms of pushing its connected hardware to the limits. As with all of our reviews, we will start by taking a look at what is on offer with the Z87X-UD3H before moving on to the board itself and taking a detailed look at all of its features before stepping into the BIOS to see if anything is new and shiny. Once we have all of this out of the way, we can start pushing the hardware to its limits and once a 100% stable ground has been found, we can start benchmarking our whole test suite at the overclocked speeds as well as stock to see how things compare. Join us as we have a look at the Z87X-UD3H from Gigabyte, as we have a feeling that this board has a few tricks up its sleeve and may be able to keep up with the big boys, and if my sources are right at the time of writing this, it should be very attractively priced as well, meaning that we could have a great contender for an all around board that ticks all the right boxes, but lets not get ahead of ourselves and get into the aesthetics side of things first.

ECS A970M-A Deluxe
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“While ECS has made some extensive improvements over the last few years with its style and design, we also continue to see ECS provide some “easy on money” type products. Today we have the opportunity to look at the ECS A970M-A Deluxe Motherboard. This motherboard is budget friendly while also providing some aesthetic enhancements. The gold and white mixed with the black PCB really makes this board stand out, but the colors alone aren’t the only thing that makes this board stand out. As we move forward, we get to show you something new that we haven’t see with most of today’s motherboards.“

ASRock FM2A85X-ITX AMD Socket FM2 ITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we test a tiny AMD Trinity Socket FM2 motherboard on OCinside.de, which is ideal to build a fast HTPC or even a small gaming PC with its Mini-ITX form factor and AMD A85X chipset. Just 17x17cm in size, the ITX motherboard offers many amazing features of the recently tested ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 ATX mainboard, which received our OverClocking Dream award. The ASRock FM2A85X-ITX motherboard has one PCI Express slot, seven SATA3 ports, one eSATA3 port, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 sound with optical S/PDIF output and graphics output over D-Sub, DVI-D or HDMI. We have tested and extremely overclocked the ASRock FM2A85X-ITX Socket FM2 motherboard with an AMD A10-5800K APU. All overclocking-, benchmark-, and test results are published in the current review and in the extensive AMD motherboard comparison.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5 (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 24 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Micro-ATX motherboards and all things on the smaller form factor have been a big highlight in the past year or so, with Mini-ITX taking the market by storm and manufacturers somehow managing to cram all of the much needed, and wanted components into this much smaller sized boards. Fast forward to the present day and we see the same thing happening all over again with Z87 and Gigabyte, as they have managed to produce a board based around the new chipset, branded under the G1-Killer branding, much like we saw with the Z77 M3 board which we loved by the way. For those out there wanting 4-way SLI and a full ATX form factor, Gigabyte have a board just for you; the G1.Sniper 5, but for those wanting a much smaller footprint, they have graced us with the G1.Sniper M5. This particular board is set to pack all of the grunt that its big brother incorporates, without any of the drawbacks, and that can be said for improved audio, overclockability, design and overall key features. Of course it doesn't have the ability for quad SLI, but that's why they have its big brother sharing the limelight to cater for that market. As we work out way through the large stack of Z87 motherboards that we have here, we wanted to make sure that this board was one of the first, because if it's anything like the Z77 G1.Sniper M3 was, then it's going to be a complete animal and may give you a few shocks on the way, as small doesn't necessarily mean underpowered of lacking features, in fact, quite the opposite. Before we check out the performance though, we need to make our way through the packaging and accessories before we take a look at the board itself and all of its features including its shiny new BIOS that has been implemented. Once this is out of the way, we can get down to the nitty gritty and see how it performs at stock speeds as well as pushing it as far as we can under our testbed conditions, and then of course to see how it performs once it's been pushed to its limits, so lets not delay and get straight into it.
