Sapphire Pure Platinum H67 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Wed, Aug 24 2011 | 3:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will take on the Sapphire Pure Platinum H67. Yes, Sapphire is making motherboards again. If you weren't aware of this, then we suggest taking a look at our exclusive on their P67 offering here. Getting back to the matter at hand, the Pure Platinum H67 takes advantage of everything the H67 chipset has to offer like SATA III, PCIe 2.0, built-in graphics and support for the Sandy Bridge processor. Sapphire is entering every phase of motherboard manufacturing, but lets see if the Pure Platinum H67 is worthy of your dollar bills.

Sapphire Pure Platinum H67 mainboard
     Tue, Aug 23 2011 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Doing a comparison with Intel’s latest 6 series chipset on a quality motherboard shows us that this Motherboard has no deficiencies that can really be improved on by Sapphire. The 1333 memory speed can be a turnoff for some but there is really not much sacrificed in that 266 MHz. Yes a benchmark will show you the deficiencies but will they make a difference in the normal operation of this board? In the end it comes down to what the manufacturer does to add value to the chipset and components that ride the buses. Did Sapphire do that? Yes I believe they did.

ASUS ROG MARS II 3GB Video Card Preview
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS MARS II is a massive video card that is 13" in length, 6.2" in height and an amazing 2.5" thick. Since it is 2.5-inches in thickness it means that this is a triple slot video card. ASUS has the red and black color scheme going one, which is common with their ROG product line. Looking down from the top of the card you see some branding on it, which is great for those that have a case window. If you buy this card you better have a case window! You can also see the two massive 12cm or 120mm cooling fans. These gigantic fans push more than 600% more air flow than the solution that NVIDIA used on their reference GeForce GTX 590 video card..."

Gigabyte G1.Sniper and GA-X58A-OC: LGA1366 Mainboards
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The terms “gaming mainboard” and “overclocking mainboard” are very popular these days, but they somehow remain pretty vague and unclear. It turned out Gigabyte have their own idea of what the real gaming and overclocking mainboards should be like.

Plextor PX-128 M2S SSD
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Who knew Plextor made SSDs? Well they do and they’re sitting pretty with a new SATA III drive. It’s part of the M2 range and is known fully as the Plextor PX-128M2S. There’s plenty of shelf life improving features that are all well and good, but you’re here for the performance numbers. So without furtherado, I present to you my findings."

Quick Sandy Bridge vs. AMD Fusion APU Integrated Graphics Comparison
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The original Level 10 went down well worldwide (and my editor actually used one in his recent M-Power mod – click here for more info), so the Level 10 GT should hopefully be even better! The only complaint that most users had of the original Level 10, was the lack of space – the GT is here to address that."

ASUS Maximus IV Extreme
     Fri, Aug 19 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're taking a look at one of the best P67 powered motherboards. The ASUS Maximus IV Extreme is a top-of-the-line P67 offering for the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) line. ROG offerings are always highly features with either newly introduced technologies or at the very least just about every option that normally can be placed on a board. Besides gamers, ROG has also built a strong following with enthusiasts and overclocker crowd. ASUS has tailored a lot of the options on the Maximus IV Extreme for better overclocking. Some of the included features include Bluetooth connectivity, ROG Connect for easier monitoring/control from a remote system, and a whole host of monitoring and overclocking features found right at the upper edge of the board to assist with any diagnosis or monitoring needed when pushing this board to the limit. Another feature of ROG boards is stylish design, and this board carries very elegant (yet aggressive) heatsinks to keep the appearance on par with the performance ASUS claims for this model.

Sapphire Pure Platinum Z68
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The premium motherboard market is dominated by a handful of established companies, and Sapphire isn't one that really comes to mind when discussing new products. However, Sapphire has produced AMD motherboards, and is coming along on the Intel side, as the Platinum Z68 is their latest foray into the market. Sporting sleek styling and good features, this motherboard certainly looks the part. But it's in for a very tough fight against some established companies. Can the Pure Platinum Z68 measure up?”

Sapphire IPC-E350M1 AMD E350 Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire IPC-E350M1 Pure Fusion Mini E350 Mini-ITX motherboard with AMD E350 APU and HD6310 GPU offers on smallest space useful features to build a HTPC or NetTop PC. The small motherboard offers an integrated graphics unit, PCI Express x16 slot, Gigabit LAN, USB3.0, 8-channel sound and much more features, which can not be found on all full-grown boards. In the current review of the Sapphire IPC-E350M1 motherboard we examine also again the overclocking, but the main focus of this review is to test the capability for small PCs with low power consumption at high performance.

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Intel P67 Motherboard Tested on PCSTATS
     Wed, Aug 17 2011 | 2:54P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This is a review of the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard which is equipped with a (new) 'B3'-stepping Intel P67 chipset. The Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard replaces the original Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 model that was recalled due to the Intel 6-series chipset issue. This is a mainstream ATX motherboard with a great set of workstation features and connectivity, all on a sleek matt-black PCB that looks fantastic in black computer chassis. The board supports 32nm socket LGA1155 2nd Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 2xxx-series 'SandyBridge' processors, such as the Core i5 2500K, and can handle dual graphics cards.

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 Intel P67 Motherboard Tested on PCSTATS

In this review PCSTATS is testing the Intel P67-based Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 motherboard. This is a mainstream ATX motherboard with a great set of workstation features and connectivity, all on a sleek matt-black PCB that looks fantastic in black computer chassis. The board supports 32nm socket LGA1155 2nd Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 2xxx-series 'SandyBridge' processors, such as the Core i5 2500K, and can handle dual graphics cards.

The upside to a recall brought about by an obscure and statistically probable SATA II controller bug are the great deals that inevitably come from it. Consumers are fickle, look carefully and you may find Intel P67 boards that offer 90% of the features of a new Intel Z68 platform that are going for next to nothing.

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.
