ASUS F1A75-V Pro (AMD A75) Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're going to be looking at our first A75 chipset motherboard in the form of the ASUS F1A75-V Pro. Of course, we've already done a big preview on this board that covered everything on the board and the BIOS; because of that we'll be getting straight into the test system, talk about overclocking and get into the performance side of things. If you want to see more of the board, though, I'd recommend you check out our original preview piece, ASUS F1A75-V Pro (AMD A75) Llano Motherboard Preview. If you've already checked out our original preview, then you will no doubt want to just get stuck into the performance of the board. On the next page you'll find the test bed we're working with today and you'll also see the overclock we managed to achieve with the board. With that done we'll get stuck straight into the performance of the board before wrapping everything up."

ASRock H61M/U3S3 Motherboard
     Thu, Jul 14 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASRock H61M/U3S3 is an entry-level socket 1155 motherboard, based on the Intel H61 chipset and using the microATX form factor, costing only USD 80. Even though it is a budget model, it features two SATA-600 ports (which are not usually found on H61-based motherboards), two USB 3.0 ports, and one PCI Express x16 slot. Let's take a look at it."

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Thu, Jul 14 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yet, with the way Intel operates, we knew that a new chipset was right around the corner. Around said corner we have come and so has that chipset, which is dubbed Z68, and shares the Cougar Point codename. Intel graced the Z68 with a few more features, added performance tweaks and improved power efficiency to your rig. ASRock was quick to send us over a couple of their motherboards featuring the Z68 where we decided to find out what is no doubt on many of your minds: Is upgrading to Z68 worth? Read on as we run through the board and find out just that.

GIGABYTE A75-UD4H (AMD A75) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jul 14 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that the all mighty NDA has lifted on the new Llano platform, we're able to bring to you all those motherboards that support the new APU from AMD. Today we'll be looking at the GIGABYTE A75-UD4H. Like the ASUS board, we have already done an extensive preview on this one, so if you haven't already looked at it, I highly recommend you go check out GIGABYTE A75-UD4H (AMD A75) Llano Motherboard Preview to see what's going on with the look of the board and the bundle." In that particular preview we didn't get a chance to look at the BIOS, so that's where we'll be starting out today. Once we've done that we'll look at our testbed, what else we'll be including in our benchmarks today and of course the overclocking side of things. GIGABYTE has been in the spotlight for the last few weeks with their A75 boards breaking all kinds of IGP records. Fingers crossed today we'll see the same kind of success from the board with some big clocks on offer."

Posted by: STAFF
"The Zotac H67ITX is a very small mini-ITX motherboard for socket 1155 processors, thus being targeted to the Intel "Sandy Bridge" CPUs. It is based on the Intel H67 chipset and comes with one PCI Express x16 slot, allowing you to build a powerful gaming system using a very small case, and some extra features such as IEEE 802.11n WiFi connectivity and four USB 3.0 ports.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jul 13 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Canada turns 144. July 4, 2011: USA turns 235. But what about me? July 3, 2011: That's one year and month anniversary since I have started here at APH Networks. It is also exactly five years and one month ago on this day, that I was given a special present after fully completing karate. What else is special about this day? Another computer here at APH Networks is successfully benchmarked by yours truly. Today, I have been asked to review a blissfully challenging and intriguing product, and this is no other than Gigabyte's high-end desktop gaming motherboard known as the G1.Sniper. "Sniper? Where!?" Incorporating Intel's X58 chipset designed mainly for the first generation Core i7 line of processors, the G1.Sniper is branded under Gigabyte's G1-Killer series, featuring a dedicated high-end X-Fi audio chip from Creative, heatsinks designed to look like the rails seen on rifles, and many other hardware and aesthetically pleasing features. The one we are reviewing today is the "midrange" unit priced about $430 at press time. Before you get too excited, let me briefly inform you that this is a "one shot, one kill" deal. You snooze, you lose; you skip benchmarking results, you miss out on seeing how well this motherboard performs. Or should I really be asking: Are the G1.Sniper's features really worth its $430 price tag? You will have to stay alert to find out!

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 Intel Z68 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jul 13 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If we were to look at strictly the performance of the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3, I would have no complaints. Unfortunately, I can't look past what I feel are short comings of the Z68X-UD7-B3. It seems to me, that GIGABYTE took the P67A-UD7-B3 motherboard, slapped the Intel Z68 chipset on it and called it good. The problem with doing that is that it pretty much leaves out the features that separate Intel Z68 chipset from the P67 chipset. You would expect that the boards would be priced close to the same, but that is not the situation that we have here today. We found that the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 is currently retailing for $349.99 plus shipping and the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 is retailing for $294.99 after rebate. That means that there is a $55 price difference between two identical motherboards. What do you get for $55? Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) for SSD caching..."

GIGABYTE A75-UD4H: CrossFire for Llano
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:32P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we looked at Llano, we determined that its CPU performance is similar to Athlon II X4 or Phenom II X4 840 processor, so why would a discrete GPU user choose Llano instead of an Athlon II X4 or Phenom II X4? Should the user choose a more expensive CPU for gaming? Firstly, Llano is more power efficient and runs much cooler than the 45nm processors. We'll be testing the second question today. In this review, we are not only going to take a look at the GIGABYTE board, but we are also going pair the board with an HD 6870 and run a few games at 1920x1080 resolution with typical settings that average gamers would use to see the impact of CPU performance in games

ASUS F1A75-V PRO Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:30P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS F1A75-V Pro motherboard is part of AMD’s FM1 APU based desktop line-up. The ASUS F1A75-V Pro is equipped with the Hudson D3 FCH, designed to support PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (at 4x speed) graphics as well as 6 SATA III and 4 USB 3.0 ports. Since the F1A75-V Pro is an ASUS motherboard, it uses a DIGI+ VRM power design for precise power delivery, high performance and rock solid stability. For extra connectivity, the ASUS F1A75-V pro also has two more USB 3.0 ports and an additional SATA III port via Asmedia USB3 and SATA controllers."

X79 motherboards are just starting to hit retailers now, and at this point the Z68 series motherboard architecture remains one of the better performing and more affordable options on the market. In this review we will take a look at the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Z68 LGA 1155 motherboard which supports the very latest second generation Intel Core i7, i5, and i3 processors."

ASUS Rampage IV Formula @ ocaholic
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 3:16P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their ROG-series ASUS traditionally aims at gamers and overclockers. Finally the manufacturer managed to target gamers with the Formula motherboards and overclockers with their Extreme products. Therefore we can expect a lot of interesting features for gamers from this motherboard but also some handy stuff for overclocking. It seems there are plenty of reasons to be curious about this board."

ASRock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 11:50A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve had several Z68-based motherboards on my test bench in the past few months, but none with the feature set ASRock bundled with the Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3. They really took the Z68 platform to a new level and I was extremely impressed with the board`s ability to handle gaming and overclocking and provide enthusiasts with advanced options to ramp up the performance of their system to new heights. ASRock has really grown as a company and continues to refine their products to meet the needs of hardcore gamers and ultra PC users looking for the best components money can buy."

MSI Z68MA-ED55 (Intel Z68) mATX Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jul 10 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just after the launch of the Z68 chipset, we managed to look at a mATX board from ASRock in the form of the Pro3-M. Priced at $114.99 US, it's a good value board, but with a maximum overclock of less than 5GHz on our 2600k, our hopes for something that could offer a bit more power while sticking to the mATX platform would continue. Step in the $159.99 US MSI Z68MA-ED5, a board that offers the good looks we saw on its bigger brother, the Z68A-GD80, but in a smaller form factor. So we find ourselves wondering; if we spend a bit more money, can we get a board that aims at performance a bit more than price like the ASRock option did?"

MSI P67A-GD80 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge ATX Motherboard Reviewed
     Sun, Jul 10 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For all intents and purposes, the MSI P67A-GD65 is a very affordable option an INTEL platform. Even with Z68 boards dropping around it. But there are some who like a extra performance, particularly when overclocking. That’s where the P67A-GD80 fits into the picture. It’s a tougher board that can be found at decent pricing and is said to be able to overclock better. Let’s find out if that’s true!

Asrock Z68 Pro3-M Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sun, Jul 10 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z68 Pro3 M is an abridged version of the Pro3. Bother motherboards offers four DIMM slots, a single PCIe x16 slot, RAID support and amongst of common features. But the Pro3 M shaved off some weight and size. The Pro3 M is a mATX board that also offers what the Z68 is known for and that is Lucid’s Virtu video support and Intel’s Smart Response technology. The Z68 chipset in a microATX form could be the beginning of an ultimate HTPC system.

Sapphire Pure Fusion Mini E350 Review

Posted by: STAFF
"AMD's Brazos platform spans mobility and the small form factor desktop. We review Sapphire's Pure Fusion Mini E350, a mini-ITX board in the TDP of an energy-efficient processor to see how it's moved on the low power and media consumption market niche. "

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.
