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.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Z68 Motherboard Tested on PCSTATS
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 1:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, the newest chipset for Intel processors is the Z68 Express and motherboards like the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 which are built around it offer up a mainstream suite of capabilities and a kitchen sink full o'features. The board supports 2nd Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 2xxx-series socket LGA1155 processors - these CPUs are based on the Intel 'SandyBridge' architecture which includes an integrated graphics core on the CPU die.
On the all important videocard front there are two options - integrated graphics via the board's HDMI/Display Port/DVI-D/Analog video outputs, or PCI Express based discrete graphics cards. In terms of videocards, the GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard will handle one PCI Express 2.0 x16 videocard in x16 mode or a pair of nVidia Geforce / ATI Radeon videocards in SLI or Crossfire, in x8/x8 mode. Intel's Sandy Bridge CPU supplies x16 lanes of PCI Express 2.0 bandwidth for the graphics cards, the Intel Z68 chipset a further eight PCIe lanes for system devices.

2) It has an onboard HDMI video output so users can leverage Intel's Quick Sync media transcoding acceleration by way of the Intel Z68+Intel HD 3000/2000 IGP. 3) Lucid Logix Virtu driver support makes it possible to effortlessly switch between integrated graphics for desktop work and a discrete videocard for 3D gaming.
4) The board supports two-way ATI Crossfire and two-way nVidia SLI for serious gamers who need raw FPS-cracking power!"

GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 AMD 990FX Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2011 | 3:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I mentioned that this motherboard was special. That’s because it’s GIGABYTE’s highest performance and most feature-rich AM3+ model. A flagship, if you will. A board that is designed to be better than the competition’s finest offerings, and show consumers what can be done with the ATX format in preparation for the arrival of the FX CPUs.

Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS E35M1-M Pro steps its Brazos board offerings up in form factor, and expandability with a host of connectors and headers; it's the only board of its kind to offer more expansion slots than a single full-length PCI-E, and in fact the only one to be bigger in form factor than mini-ITX. At $145 it's not too expensive, now hit our review to see how it fares against its mini-ITX siblings.

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.
