ASRock Z68 Pro3 Intel LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASRock Z68 Pro3 is the first Intel LGA1155 Sandy Bridge motherboard tested so far at ocinside.de. It is based on Intel's Z68 chipset and offers a very inexpensive solution for current 1155-Pin processors like e.g. the unlocked Intel Core i7-2600K, unlocked Core i5-2500K with which we have tested the motherboard, Intel Core i3-2120, i3-2100 or Intel Pentium Q850, Q840, G620 and more LGA1155 processors. The equipment is relatively basic, but it offers some settings for overclocking and a lot of more features like e.g. integrated fan control, new UEFI BIOS and Lucid Virtu support, which we have tested also in this review.

Intel Z68 Express with Smart Response Technology:
     Wed, Jan 04 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you look back to our coverage of the Sandy Bridge launch, we tested the two premiere chipsets in the 6-series, the enthusiast-targeted P67 and mainstream H67. Fundamentally, the two chipsets were very similar (and are based on the same piece of silicon), but each had a specific feature set designed for its target audience. For example, the P67 offered CPU and memory overclocking and increased power and current limits, while the H67 gave users the ability to take advantage of Sandy Bridge’s built-in graphics and Quick Sync media-encoding engine. P67 users that wanted to take advantage of Quick Sync and H67 users looking to do some CPU overclocking were simply out of luck. With the Z68 Express, however, prospective Sandy Bridge users no longer need to compromise...
