- ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 13 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Republic of Gamers boards from ASUS have done a great job of impressing us. In June we had a look at the Maximus IV Extreme. Moving to July, we checked out the Maximus IV Gene-Z and today we check out the Maximus IV Extreme-Z. To be honest, before I even start testing, I have a good feeling about the board simply because of the track record. But of course, we'll see just what the Maximus IV Extreme-Z is able to offer." Before we get into the performance side of things, there are a few other areas we need to look at which is of course starting off with the package. Once we've done that, we'll get stuck in to the motherboard itself and just see what kind of features are on offer from the Maximus IV Extreme-Z. We'll fire up the BIOS and show you all those options ASUS are offering before we get into looking at our testbed, which carries with it a few changes, along with the overclocking capabilities of the board."

Today we`re looking at the Intel DX79SI, a board that a lot of people may ignore.

GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2 (Intel X79) Motherboard Preview
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m a big fan of the G1 series from GIGABYTE. I get that some of the design decisions aren`t for everyone, but the bottom line is that in the feature department the G1 series are one of the most stacked series on the market. With more and more people pulling away from separate sound and networking cards, the addition of high end components in these areas on board are appreciated. The latest addition to the G1 series from GIGABYTE comes in the form of the new G1.Assassin 2 and of course carries the much anticipated X79 chipset that we`ve been waiting for what feels like forever now. While we`re still just a little bit out from NDA, there`s as usual a lot of things we can`t tell you when it comes to the performance side of things, nor can we tell you some of the particular technologies implemented on the board."

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 Motherboard Review

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
We found that the installation of this board was slightly grievous as it is a few centimetres longer than most other ATX boards so we were unable to use our cases cable management holes as the board covers them, but despite this there was nothing untoward to report and once in the case, we found that all the connectors were well placed and felt very securely attached to the board, further reaffirming our view that this is looking to be one of the most well made bits of kit we have been fortunate enough to get our hands on.

All ECS Motherboards with Solid Capacitors for CPU Power
     Wed, Aug 10 2011 | 4:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF


Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), the world's leading motherboard, graphics card, barebone system, notebook and mobile device manufacturer designs its products with the best quality standard for its users' benefit. Due to the CPU occupying the most power consumption during PC computation, the CPU area requires more durable components to support it.

Therefore, ECS has adopted the usage of solid capacitors around the CPU power area for all series motherboards taking into consideration the balance of the user's budget and product quality to achieve the best cost/performance.

Compared to traditional electrolytic capacitors, solid capacitors have 1000 times more electric conductivity to offer better performance. The CPU area normally generates higher temperatures because of increased power consumption. Solid capacitors have the following features: 10% lower temperatures, higher temperature durability for longer life span and reliability. 

ECS guarantees equipping its motherboards with real solid capacitor components unlike some manufacturers who use traditional electrolytic capacitors covering them with a pretend solid capacitor shell.  ECS not only looks after your pocket but also ensures the quality of its motherboards on every detail to earn its users' trust.
