DDR3 Memory Performance Analysis on Intel X79 @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 4:34P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We started out running a single module at 1333MHz and then another module at a time to test dual channel, triple channel and finally quad channel. The Intel X79 chipet on the Intel SX79SI motherboard was able to properly run each memory configuration. The benchmark results in Sandra 2012 were very impressive in the sense that the benchmark results were nearly linear when moving from single channel to triple channel memory. Adding the fourth module for quad channel performance showed..."

ECS HDC-I Fusion Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 4:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ECS is taking complete advantage of the feature sets associated with the Brazos platform in the HDC-I and keeping this board at a price point that consumers can afford. These mini ITX boards provide great performance and low power consumption, which makes it a very tempting option for tweeners who don`t want to jump to a micro ATX or ATX setup. Consumers get the best of both worlds with the HDC-I if they are looking for a entry-level mainboard for their next home theater PC."

Quick hands on with the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 7:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There has been some concern from Gigabyte`s competitors that the company wasn`t going to offer any Z68 motherboards with display connectivity, in fact, some of its competitors have been so concerned that they`ve sent out material stating this to media in certain parts of the world. Well, it turns out that it couldn`t be further from the truth and yesterday you saw the GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 and today we have a few hands on pictures of the GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 for your ogling pleasure."

ASRock A55 Pro3 Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 1:14A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as layout and features go, the ASRock A55 Pro3 did ok. The layout of the board was great, except for the fact that a majority of the SATA cables were not right-angled. As far as features are concerned, I would have liked to see a bit more. I know I can`t expect much from a motherboard that costs $75, and what you`re getting for the price is great, I just felt as though something more could have been done. The included software may have actually fed my need for more, but the included CD did not work."

ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 6:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That package would be the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Motherboard. The ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Motherboard takes the multimedia of the H67 and harmoniously combines it with the high performance and features of the P67. The CPU Turbo Ratio and BCLK were only overclockable on the P67 and the iGPU was only overclockable on the H67. This can all now be done on the Z68 chipset. There is LGA1155 support for the latest 2nd generation Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors."

ASUS Sabertooth X79 @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 1:28A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Sabertooth X79, ASUS shows the latest TUF-Series motherboard which is based on Intels upcoming X79 chipset and comes with a lot of features. For example the Thermal Rader is quite an interesting piece of software which allows users to monitor temperatures all over the board and adjust fan speeds accordingly."

MSI 990FXA GD-80 Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 10:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past the OC Genie one-touch overclocking utility has been excellent at giving the novice user a nice boost in processor speed for the small effort of pushing a button with no overclocking knowledge needed. On their Intel boards this works without a hitch but on the AMD side of the fence it may come down to needing some more time to iron out the details with the FX-8150. When it did work I was able to get an overclock of 4.02GHz which is just short of the 4.2GHz max you get under Turbo Boost situations. Kind of a disappointment considering how well it works on the Intel side of the fence. Manually overclocking the 990FXA-GD80 proved to not be a challenge except where the voltage to the processor was concerned. I had to find that fine balance of voltage taking into consideration what the chip needed to run the numbers. 4.84GHz was about all that I could get from the 990FXA-GD80 which is about 120MHz short of what the Crosshair V would give. Even with the lower clock speed, this amounts to a significant increase in processor speed of 1.2+GHz or around 33%."

Asus P8P67 Pro B3 Rev 3.1 Motherboard @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I know we have lacked in motherboard reviews lately, so today we are taking a look at a fairly new motherboard from Asus which is called ?P8P67 Pro Rev3.1.? This board is equipped with loads of overclocking features and should easily push our cpu to around 4,5GHz or more. Lets find out how this board performs!"

Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with all socket types, the motherboard isn`t really going to give a noticeable performance increase or decrease. If they did, the comparison charts would be slightly more interesting. So instead of buying a motherboard based on performance, it`s best to purchase one based on its overclockability, features, and sometimes even its looks. After using the Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum I`m confident in saying that it doesn`t fall short in the latter two of these categories. The one that I`m slightly concerned about is the board`s ability to overclock."

Asrock H61M / USB3 Motherboard @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 5:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink

Today we take a look at a motherboard from Asrock, which supports the new Intel K-Series CPU (1155). This motherboard is also equipped with USB3 ports, and built on VGA that supports up to 1080P Blu-ray playback. Lets take a closer look at what we can expect from the board."

GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD5 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 11:22A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79-UD5 has all the new features of the X79 chipset as you would expect, quad channel support, PCIe Gen3, SATA 6GB/s along with USB 3.0. Much like the MSI X79 GD65 motherboard we are comparing it to today, it too has 8 DIMMS capable of hosting 128GB. It boasts on-board switches, Ultra Durable power components and SLI/Crossfire support. So on the face of it these two boards are pretty evenly matched and appear to be perfect solutions for those looking for a mid-high end foundation of Intel`s Sandy Bridge-E processor range. Which is best? Well, you`ll have to carry on reading but I would advise you not to skip straight to the conclusion and there are many small differences between the two combatants in today`s review."

Lucid Virtu Universal Adds AMD and Virtual Vsync Support
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 7:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are looking forward to getting a copy of Virtu Universal software in our labs to start playing around with to see if it lives up to the claims presented by Lucid. By offering support for AMD platforms, mobile markets and now introducing a unique and interesting additional feature that enthusiasts and gamers could just fall in love with, this new software might be the must-have feature for motherboards in the second half of 2011."

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. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
