MSI Z68A-GD80 Revision G3
     Fri, Oct 28 2011 | 1:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Putting the screws to the MSI Z68A-GD80 G3 gave me almost identical overclocking results as the B3 revision did. No surprise there! The way to the promised land is through adjustments of the bclock, clock multiplier, vcore, and turbo boost settings. The CPU I am using needs the PLL overvoltage option enabled to reach a multiplier greater than 44 and really does not care to run over 47. But it is tolerant of increasing the bclock at higher multipliers. On this board, that equated to a bclock 105.6MHz. The vcore needed to get to 4.96GHz on this chip is in the 1.48 to 1.49 range, depending on the board and how the Load Line calibration options are structured to manage the vdroop. In this case, a setting of 1.485v in the BIOS would show as 1.472 under load."

Intel X79 Quad Channel and Z68 Dual Channel Memory Performance Analysis
     Wed, Oct 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory performance on the new platform has been all over the place and I`ve personally been talking to both motherboard and RAM manufacturers to see what we can do about the performance. The big issue at the moment is under AIDA64 - an almost industry standard benchmark for us, we see that Quad Channel isn`t painted in the best light. It`s not our job to go out there and make sure the product is painted in the best light. It`s not like Intel has turned around and said anything to us, though, it`s just this personal issue I`m having at the moment with the numbers we`re getting out of Quad Channel memory in our normal benchmarks. It doesn`t make sense that from a bandwidth perspective it offers no more performance than Dual Channel, if not slightly less at times."

ECS A75F-M2 Socket FM1 mATX Motherboard Review
     Tue, Oct 11 2011 | 9:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a budget AMD FM1 board ... *ECS A75F-M2 Socket FM1 mATX Motherboard Review* here is always a way to save money when buying computer components. It often comes down to what you are willing to sacrifice to save that money. Ideally the difference in performance is small or the lost feature is replaced by a less expensive feature that is just as useful. In our GIGABYTE A75M-UD2H review for example, you?ll see that they?ve lowered costs by omitting the UEFI graphical BIOS, in favour of providing superior overclocking. Today we are looking at the ECS A75F-M2 which has an MSRP of $72.99. Hopefully we?ll see more replacement of features with better or more useful ones too. * * *"

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Oct 11 2011 | 10:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One aspect of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 truly set it apart from the ASUS Crosshair V Formula. That was our experience when we overclocked the AMD FX-8150. When we pushed the FX-8150 on the ASUS Crosshair V Formula, we weren`t able to break 4.6GHz with all eight cores active. At 4.6GHz the system would boot up completely normal and seemed to be rock solid. When we tried for 4.7GHz the system wouldn`t even post, didn`t seem to matter if we pushed more voltage or any of the other tricks up our sleeves. It seemed that our FX-8150 was just limited to 4.6GHz with all eight cores. We were able to disable four of the cores and get to 4.9GHz. The GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 turned out to be a completely different story. We were able to bring the system to 4.6GHz, and didn`t plan on much more thinking that our chip wouldn`t do any more. Turns out it wasn`t the chip that was the issue..."

GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Sep 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Z68 launched we saw GIGABYTE bring the G1 series back in the form of the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2; it offered everything you`d want from a board that was focused on the gaming market. I liked the board so much that it made its way into my own system paired with a 2600k and HD 6990. The Killer E2100 NIC while I feel is probably just as good as an Intel one is a really nice addition, but the onboard X-Fi audio is a real stand out for me, along with the Matte Black PCB. Jump forward a few more months, though, with the launch of the X79 chipset and we saw that GIGABYTE was getting on the G1 bandwagon straight away. Last week we managed to preview the new GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, but today we get to really see what the new board is about in our full review. Because we`ve already previewed the board, we`ve had the opportunity to cover almost every aspect of the board already. Really, the only thing we`ve missed is the PCIe specifications when it comes to the expansion slots."

ASUS Rampage III Black Edition
     Mon, Sep 05 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering that the aging X58 chipset has already been replaced, we were surprised to see yet another offering in the X58 lineup, even with the recent release of Sandy Bridge and the Z68 chipset. However, looking over the specs and feature, on this board we would dare to say that the X58 is back in black.

MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) Motherboard
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A few months later in May Intel launched an updated Sandy Bridge chipset called Z68 which essentially takes the best features of the P67 and H67 and combines them into one. With a Z68 board, users can overclock the CPU and use the integrated Intel HD graphics. Previously, if you wanted to overclock, you had to buy a P67 board and you had to use a discrete graphics card. If you wanted to use the integrated graphics, you needed an H67 board but then you couldn't overclock the CPU. In addition to these combined features, Z68 also introduces a new feature called Smart Response Technology (SRT) which uses a solid state drive to cache data from a traditional spinning hard drive."

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.
