ASUS Rampage III Black Edition X58 Motherboard Review
     Tue, May 24 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
: "The Rampage III Black Edition comes in muted red and mostly black colored layout but keeps the aggressive ROG styling. The Rampage III Black Edition is ripe with overclocking features and exclusive gaming technologies, including the ASUS Thunderbolt LAN/Audio card combo, Extreme Engine DIGI+, BCLK Enhance, QPI/PCIe Tuning, GPU DIMM Post, etc. For users with multiple graphic cards, the Rampage III Black Edition also supports 3-way SLI or CrossFireX and is ready for 4 single PCB 2-slot graphic cards (requires ASUS Xpander NF200 add-on daughterboard)."

AMD 990 Chipset / socket AM3b Preview - MSI 990FXA-GD65
     Tue, May 24 2011 | 2:35P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
MSI released some snap shots today of its upcoming AMD990FX chipset motherboard for the AMD socket AM3b processor. No technical specifications for the MSI 990FXA-GD65 motherboard were released however.
From the photo's alone, PCSTATS can see the board is equipped with two PCI Express x16 videocard slots, (6) 6Gb/s SATA III ports, a pair of USB 3.0 care of an NEC chipset and (4) PCI Express x1 slots. The rest is a mystery.... I'd like to tell you that the board will run on DDR3 memory, but I can't. I'd like to tell you that MSI will bundling _______ in with the board, but I can't. I'd like to tell you the MSI 990FXA-GD65 motherboard will run for just over $100, but I can't.
I've gotta ask, will you be buying an AMD processor to go along with an AMD 990FX board when they finally emerge? Start the discussion in the PCSTATS Forums...here.

now defunct P67 chipset
     Tue, May 24 2011 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Some of the high points included the redesigned PCB with the new low-profile heatsinks and black color scheme. But, the low points involved sub-par gaming benchmark scores and fair overclocking results. We were also a bit disappointed with the lack of a full EFI BIOS with mouse support. Overall, after Intel's debacle with the P67 chipset is straightened out, I think Intel's new CPUs and chipset have plenty of room to mature and I hope Intel and Gigabyte can give overclockers a little more to work with other than increasing the CPU multiplier and Vcore on unlocked K-series processors."

ECS Elitegroup H67H2-I LGA1155 Mini-ITX Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 11:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a little Sandy Bridge powered board with some bite ... ECS Elitegroup H67H2-I LGA1155 Mini-ITX Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review Mini PCs are extremely enticing if you?re looking for something that can do most of what a full sized computer can do. This includes surfing the web and most productivity apps. While some are capable of HD playback, some aren?t as efficient when it comes to providing speedy video encoding, transcoding, and running many large applications at once. That means high performance gaming may not be an option. However, with the right platform, your own processor, memory, and video card of choice it?s possible to have it all and then some! Let?s have a look at the ECS Elitegroup H67H2-I motherboard and you?ll see how this is possible!"

dubbed the P67 Professional
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock is teaming up with Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel to bring back to life the Fatal1ty series of gamer-centric motherboards. Their latest creation is dubbed the P67 Professional and this particular LGA 1155-based motherboard pulls out all the stops in terms of quality components and enthusiast-level features. The use of premium gold caps, Japanese conductive polymer capacitors, and support for quad SLI and CrossfireX graphics configurations makes the P67 Professional a true head-turner for gamers.

     Sun, May 22 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that the initial Intel Cougar Point chipset problems have been resolved, there is a plethora of motherboards on the market that support the latest Sandy Bridge processors. For enthusiasts, the current high-end SNB-supportive chipset is the Intel P67, of which there are also many different motherboards from various vendors. One of the P67 motherboards that attempts to provide some of the high-end features while at a mainstream price-point is the ECS P67H2-A2. This Elitegroup motherboard retails for less than $200 USD while it ships with two PCI Express x16 slots, USB 3.0, Serial ATA 3.0, and ECS overclocking features."

ASUS P8P67 Motherboard Review
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With Intel finally launching Sandy Bridge we can now reveal the performance aspect of the much anticipated ASUS P8P67 motherboard that will operate within the mainstream segment of the LGA1155 lineup. Some weeks ago now we gave readers a preview of the ASUS P8P67 and we were forced to withhold any performance related results until now. Yesterday we published the current range of Intel 6 Series / Sandy Bridge processors 2300, 2400 & 2500K Review. That article revealed some rather significant results, showing that the 2500K chip in particular is a 'diamond in the rough'. Those tests were made possible by the ASUS P8P67 which we will be looking at today. It's great that we have a comparison to analysis with regards to the processors, but the real question now is - how does this P8P67 compare against other P67 motherboards?"

MSI P67A-GD80 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel's Sandy Bridge platform got off to a strong start at the 2011 CES earlier this year before an issue with the P67 chipset sidelined motherboard production for several weeks. The chipset design error wasn't catastrophic by any means and likely wouldn't cause any issues for years to come, but it certainly needed to be corrected regardless. Board manufacturers worked with Intel to replace "bad" boards with those featuring the revised B3 chipset and business is pretty much back to normal at this point."

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 Intel Z68 Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 20 2011 | 2:14P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Meet the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 motherboard, a non-integrated graphics take on the new Intel Z68 chipset. While the Intel Z68 is reknown for combining the best the Intel P67 & H67 chipsets had to offer in one platform - and let's face it, also puts the final nail in the coffin of both - not all Z68 motherboards are being built with video outputs. In any case, let's look at what the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 motherboard does have to offer; first there's the new hybrid-EFI TouchBIOS and Intel Smart Response Technology - by far this the most exciting development with Z68 boards.

Then there is +3TB hard drive support, eight USB 3.0 ports, 3x USB power boost, On/Off Charge for recharging devices like the iPhone and a whole bunch of other features from the board level on up.

"Today we have one of the B3 revision motherboards on our test bench, a mini-ITX model from Gigabyte, which packs a whole load of features into a tiny PCB. We'll be putting that model through its paces, along with the low energy 2100/2500T CPUs, in a selection of synthetic and real world tests to find out how they perform with a mini-ITX Fusion system included as a performance baseline."

Intel Desktop Extreme Board DX58SO2
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It isn't that often that we have an Intel branded motherboard come across the Legit Reviews test bench. Fortunately for you, that is exactly what we have for you today! The Intel DX58SO2 X58 motherboard is part of the Intel Extreme series of motherboards. The DX58SO2 X58 motherboard is the latest and greatest motherboard from Intel for their X58 chipset.. Early adopters of the X58 platform also might be looking for a newer motherboard as the Intel X58 Express chipset first came out back in November 2008. That means many users out there are running the early boards that didn't have SATA 6Gb/s, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and many of the other features and improvements that have been made or discovered since 2008. The Intel DX58SO2 has just about every feature under the sun..."

MSI P67A-G43 LGA 1155 Motherboard
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 2:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The motherboard can be configured for either RAID 0, 1, 5, or 10. I set it up to use RAID 0 for speed, and to live life on the very edge! Thankfully, the configuration for RAID is pretty simple. You need to go into the BIOS first and set the SATA ports to operate in RAID, and then reboot into the RAID controller settings (CTRL + i), but it’s fairly seamless. Unfortunately, the instructions manual does not state any of this, so you might be stuck scratching your head."

GIGABYTE X58-USB3 (Intel X58 Express) Motherboard Review
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 2:23P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With all the news about the P67, the B2 or B3 stepping and now Z68, there is still room for the tried and true X58 chipset. This time on our bench is a mid-range board from GIGABYTE - we have the X58-USB3. The X58-USB3 leaves off the SATA 3.0, but keeps the USB 3.0. You also still get the usual SLI and Crossfire support and all for the fairly low price of $179.99 at Newegg at the time of writing. This is not bad at all to enter the world of triple channel RAM and the upper end Core i7 CPUs!"

ASRock P67 Pro 3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 1:32P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a budget board offering for Sandy Bridge upgraders ... ASRock P67 Pro 3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review There?s something about a board with a single PCI Express slot that seems to make it weaker somehow. The fact is, the large majority of computer users out there only use a single video card. That makes spending the extra money on a board with features you?ll never use kind of a waste. And, given economic uncertainties, there are a lot of people looking to make the cheapest jump possible to new technology like INTEL?s Sandy Bridge. That?s where the new ASRock P67 Pro3 motherboard seems to excel. Let?s see if ?super budget? means more or less performance."

ASUS E35M1-I DELUXE (Fusion E-350) Motherboard Review
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 8:16P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When I tested the GIGABYTE E350N-USB3 in February I was really impressed with what GIGABYTE and AMD were able to do with the E-350 based Fusion platform. One thing really bugged me about the board, though. The fact that it used active cooling was quite a disappointment, because it just felt like it didn't need it. Well, ASUS have decided to go down the passive cooling path and in a good way with a very mean looking cooler included on the board. Before we get into the board itself, though, and the performance that the E35M1-I DELUXE is able to offer, we firstly need to see what's going on with the bundle."

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.
