Charts: 10 Socket 2011 Boards - Rampage IV Gene @ ocaholic
     Sat, Jan 14 2012 | 9:42A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far we`ve tested ten Socket 2011 motherboards and we have to say that sometimes we got quite interesting results. What we`ve also done is, we have added power consumption values as well as a performance rating which allows quick comparision of which board performs best and which is the most energy efficient.,,,,,,,,"

MSI X79 Big Bang XPower II review
     Thu, Jan 12 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI launched their Big Bang XPower II motherboard, we review and test it. A military themed motherboard for which they took the Intel Sandy Bridge-E chipset called X79, then they started designing a motherboard that will knock you of your feet once you place your first glimpse on it. The board is marketed as the perfect solution for extreme overclockers and gamers. Powered by Intel`s X79 chipset, the XPower II obviously is intended for Sandy Bridge-E processors and features a 22-phase PWM design with Hybrid Digital Power for an output of up to 770 W, Military Class III components, dual 8-pin CPU power connectors, and a good seven PCI-Express x16 (four being PCIe 3.0) slots enabling 4-way SLI or Quad CrossFireX GPU setups.

Posted by: STAFF

"The microATX Intel DH67BL motherboard is equipped with one PCI Express 2.0 x16 videocard slot that runs with 16-lanes of bandwidth; rounding out the expansion slots are two PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots and one PCI slot. This MicroATX board has four 1.35v dual channel DDR3-1066/1333 memory slots which can accommodate up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM in 64-bit OS like Windows 7."


Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 review
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 1:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We test the Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2. It's the motherboard that is both loved and hated for it's gun themed design. Regardless of what you guys might thing, Gigabyte knows and certainly appreciates the fact that everybody is talking about their products. The G1.Assassin 2 motherboard comes loaded with some very nice features, much like it predecessors it has an embedded Killer E2100 NIC, said to deliver better networking performance to hardcore gamers. The board itself comes with three PCI Express x16 slots for 3-way CrossFireX and SLI support . Gigabyte also added an integrated Creative X-Fi PCI Express sound card featuring Nichicon MUSE audio capacitors, included is a WIFI and Bluetooth network card.

ASRock X79 Extreme4m @ ocaholic
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 10:30A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79 Extreme4m is ASRocks only mATX motherboard for Intels latest Socket 2011. This little things seems to be a very interesting breed because it offers about the same featuers like the Extreme4 which comes with an ATX formfactor. We`re very curious what a job ASRock did from a lyout and design perspective already."

MSI X79 Big Bang XPower II Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 3:52A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you weren`t already sure then maybe Quad SLI/Crossfire capability along with a 22 Phase power design and the obligatory support for 128GB of ram would be enough to convince you that this motherboard is a force to be reckoned with. No? Well carry on reading as there`s so much more to this mainboard that can be covered in just a few paragraphs..."

REVIEW: Sapphire 990FX Pure Black @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 10:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire is well known for manufacturing quality graphics cards but has been under the radar for sometime producing rather sleek motherboards. More recently, the A75 (AMD`s Llano platform) and Z68 (Intel`s SandyBridge platform) motherboards have put Sapphire as a solid contender in the industry. Today, we have the Sapphire 990FX Pure Black for AMD`s Bulldozer FX processors. We`re very interested in what this board can do, so we`ve decided to pop in a flagship Bulldozer chip with some sub-zero cooling and see what we can accomplish. 5GHz? Pfft, that`s easy. 6+GHz? Ok, now you`re talking."

GIGABYTE X79-UD5 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 9:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79-UD5 from GIGABYTE also marks the last of our X79 boards that we received at launch, bringing the total to 12 X79 motherboards since the launch of the new high end chipset from Intel. We`ve got more boards on the way, but they`ll be slightly delayed. For now we`ll be finishing our massive X79 motherboard run with the X79-UD5. There`s not much more that really needs to be said; we should all be pretty comfortable when it comes to knowing the new chipset from Intel, so let`s just get stuck into the package of the board. Once we`ve done that we`ll move onto the motherboard itself, jump into the fancy new 3D BIOS that GIGABYTE are using before we cover the overclocking side of things alongside the performance of course."

Ultimate SFF Lanparty Machine: Intel Xeon E5 (SNB-EP 8C/16T) on an ASUS Rampage IV GENE
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 5:41A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here`s a treat for all hard core enthusiasts - an engineering sample of the upcoming Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge-EP 8 Cores, 16 Threads) was spotted by our team working on a ASUS ROG Rampage IV GENE motherboard, which was housed inside a small Thermaltake mATX lanparty box. This pretty much confirms internet rumors that have been going around for quite some time that the 8-core server part will work on regular 1P desktop boards, although not officially sanctioned or validated by Intel."

ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS may well be the followup
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 5:09A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Performance zealots will remember the ASUS Z7S WS which went head on with then Intel 'Skulltrail' D5400XS Xeon luxury gaming platform (using dual unlocked QX9775 chips), but since then ASUS has done nothing of that sort, leaving EVGA with the iconic SR-2 to mop up things in the Xeon 55xx/56xx era. This is about to change with the imminent launch of the Sandy Bridge-EP Xeon E5 platform, and the ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS may well be the followup that power hungry gamers and high frequency traders are looking for.

REVIEW: Gigabyte X79 G1.Assassin 2 @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their G1.Assassin 2 from their Gamer series, Gigabyte hopes to deliver a board which exceeds anything else in the mainstream market and we will be putting this motherboard to the test, both in real-world and some synthetic tests to see if this board can live up to the claims."

GA-Z68XP-UD5 Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 motherboard continues that trend on the Intel Z68 Express platform. The GA-Z68XP-UD5 packs a ton of features with some pretty innovative software. Starting out, the motherboard uses the Z68 chipset. This means that it is a LGA1155 socket for the newest Intel Sandy Bridge processors and has memory support up to 2133MHz with a capacity for 32GB. For storage there are two SATA 3.0 ports and four SATA 2.0 ports with RAID 0,1,5,10 support. There are I/O connectivity includes two eSATA 6Gb/s connectors, up to ten USB 2.0 ports (including the 4 expandable with internal headers), up to 8 USB 3.0 ports (4 on the back panel and 4 with internal headers), and three IEEE 1394a ports (two on the rear and one internal header)."

Asus P9X79 Deluxe: Starting Point for LGA 2011 Platform
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 11:16A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUSTeK mainboards are the leading brand today that is why this particular model seems to be an ideal choice for opening a series of articles dedicated to the new platform. We will dwell on absolutely everything about it: package, accessories, technical specifications, EFI BIOS functionality, new programs and utilities, overclocking potential, performance and power consumption."
