Motherboard Advertising & DRAM Compatibility @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While building a desktop computer can be daunting, it`s not really that hard of a process and with a little instruction most anyone can build a system. I have clients in their 80`s that now build systems and my sons built their first PCs at ages 7 and 5 respectfully. Benchmark Reviews goes to great lengths to provide information that will help all builders, both first time builders and long time Professionals. There are however, things that can make the decision making process on what to use/buy more difficult. One of the biggest roadblocks (and one of my Pet Peeves) is advertising done by motherboard manufacturers as to DRAM compatibility. We`ll take a closer look at this and see some of the pitfalls..."

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WiFi Review
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 9:56P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now when it came to overclocking, the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WiFi will allow your processor and memory to scale almost effortlessly when manually tweaking the settings. Up to the limits of your hardware at least. I was able to pull a 1.2GHz overclock out of the CPU and run the 2133MHz rated memory at up to 2400MHz by adjusting the timings and tweaking the voltages a bit for stability. Manually tuning in the 3D BIOS is not the only avenue to increase the performance of your installed hardware. Using Easy Tune 6 you can overclock from within the operating system to see what works and what does not. The utility does not come by the Easy Tune name just the sake of calling it something. Using the Auto Tuning feature of the Tuner section of ET6 you can choose a few preset options to overclock your hardware from a mild 4.18GHz using a 102MHz bclock to a more aggressive 4.68GHz using a 104MHz bclock."

Even though market conditions are still relatively slow, companies like Gigabyte have a full line of Z77 motherboards to choose from. So, which one will fit the bill for a top tier system? Perhaps Gigabyte will be able to take a nice chunk of the marketshare with products like this uniquely designed GA-Z77X-UP7.

ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 12:32A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 supports the latest AM3+ FX processors from AMD including the recently released FX 8300 Vishera family. The ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 mainboard is equipped with ASUS` DIGI+ Power Control VRM for stable power delivery when overclocking. Two additional SATA3 6G ports are provided through an Asmedia 1061 chip onboard the M5A99FX Pro R2.0 while five SATA3 6G ports onboard and an eSATA3 6G port in the rear I/O are provided by the AMD SB950 chipset. There are two PCI-E x16 lanes for dual SLI or CrossFireX and two additional black PCI-E x16 slots wired as x4 for additional expansion cards. Since USB 3.0 is not provided natively from an AMD chipset, ASUS utilizes the ASMedia 1042 chip to provide two rear USB ports and a 19-pin USB 3.0 front panel header onboard which also supports UASP and capable of up to 3x faster charging through ASUS` AiCharger+ feature. For an all-in-one convenient system management, ASUS also provides their AI Suite II software package to easily access, monitor, tweak and overclock their system from the desktop, even on the recently released Windows 8 operating system."

     Sun, Nov 11 2012 | 11:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink

ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX Z77 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 3:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a stock performance standpoint, I couldnt have been happier with the ECS Z77H2-AX. It performed admirably in all the benchmarks with solid results in both the gaming and non-gaming tests. The real Achilles heel of the board was its lack of overclocking performance. Its lack of performance in the USB 2.0 and 3.0 hard drive tests remains puzzling as well."

ASRock Z77 OC Formula Review
     Wed, Nov 07 2012 | 9:21A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But wait, there`s more, as the commercial starts. The UEFI BIOS is full of tweaks designed for the enthusiast with preset overclocking profiles tuned by Nick Shih as well as memory presets for use with specific module and speed combinations similar to what you might find on an ASUS ROG board. By using a combination of profiles and manual tweaking I was able to push the Core i7 3770K to over 4.8GHz with the memory running at 2400MHz (higher than it ever has so far); pretty stout results for a combination of parts I thought I had rung the last bit of performance from."

Sapphire Pure Black 990FX Review
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 10:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Pure Black 990FX is a beautifully crafted motherboard with a great layout and is made for the high end enthusiast who wants to stack up two or three big GPUs and and clock their CPU to maximum frequency. It is full of top notch solid capacitors, ferrite `Diamond` chokes and a long row of transducers with 8+2+2 phase power delivery. With Bluetooth and dual LAN in the back, and heat sinks that look like they could cap off Chernobyl on the front, this really great board is missing one crucial feature to truly fulfill its intended purpose of being an overclock powerhouse. It needs Load Line Calibration or Control. While I was able to obtain a respectable overclock on the FX-8150 of 4.6GHz, the silicon will be stable at 5.0GHz on a board with LLC. It is a feature that I cannot explain the absence of on high end enthusiast boards today."
