ASRock E350M1 AMD Fusion APU Motherboard
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today's review sample is the ASRock E350M1, which as the name indicates is an AMD E350 Fusion APU with the Hudson-M1 (A50M) FCH. This is an mITX desktop board aimed at anyone interested in building a powerful, yet power conservative, HTPC or Nettop system. With the dual-core 1600MHz E350 being fused together with a Radeon HD 6310 GPU, it makes for the perfect platform with enough horse power for either task. Should you want to make a light TV gaming machine, a digital TV box for DVR, or want the best sound possible for your movies, then there is also a full length PCIe slot that can be filled with a discrete card to match your needs. Having four internal SATA-III ports could easily turn the E350M1 into a massive storage DVR or media storage HTPC. Join us as we see what this little APU equipped board is made of and what it is capable of handling.

GIGABYTE G1.Assassin gaming motherboard
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gaming" motherboards seem to be a dime a dozen these days but it's rare to see a product that's built from the ground up to cater to the unique needs of the gaming community. This is exactly what Gigabyte is looking to accomplish with the G1 Killer series; particularly with the flagship G1.Assassin. Packing a Bigfoot Killer E2100 NPU and a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi digital audio processor, this motherboard seems to have what it takes to make a splash in a highly competitive market.

ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That drive to produce excellence no matter what the product has helped them to secure an enviable reputation as one of the PC world's top manufacturers. Even the HTPC market is in their sights with ASUS aiming squarely at the compact home cinema market with their brand new E35M1-I Deluxe. Using the ultra compact ITX form factor the board packs a truck load of current features like USB 3.0, SATA 6.0Gbps (courtesy of AMD's Hudson M1 chipset) and AMD's low power Zacate E350 dual core processor.

Posted by: STAFF
ASRock tosses its hat into the Intel Sandy Bridge motherboard ring with its Fatal1ty P67 Professional, supporting the Intel P67 chipset and featuring the celebrity endorsement of pro gamer Jonathan 'Fatal1ty' Wendell. The board won't let you forget its a Fatal1ty product, as the visual theme is applied right down to the new UEFI-style BIOS. Hit our review of the Fatal1ty P67 Professional to see if its performance is just as in-your-face:

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the opportunity to test ASRock's latest Intel Sandy Bridge offering. If you view ASRock as a purely budget brand and would skip them when considering your next upgrade, in favour of more dominant manufacturers, this review may well change your opinion. So let's check out what ASRock have to offer!

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:27P | Motherboards | PermaLink

The P67 Professional Motherboard from ASRock is the Fatal1ty branded product from the series and comes with a lot of features like Digital PWM, XFast USB Technology, V16+2 CPU Power Phases, no less than 6 USB 3.0 ports and 6 SATA3, C.C.O., THX TruStudio Pro, and the unique Fatal1ty Mouse Port, which allows us to set the desired mouse polling rate, up to 1000Hz.

Intel DH67BL MicroATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Purchasing the Intel DH67BL MicroATX motherboard isn't a sacrifice in quality. The DH67BL has all the necessary features that a HTPC or anyone needing a small powerful computer would need. The DH67BL has the LGA1155 socket that supports the newest Intel Core i7/i5/i3 Sandy Bridge processors. There are four 240-pin DIMM slots that support DDR3 memory modules at 1333MHz and 1066MHz speeds. Maximum supported memory is 32GB. The Intel H67 Express Chipset has the Intel Rapid Storage Technology capability. This allows RAID 0,1,5, and 10 hard drive configurations. Onboard are DVI-I and HDMI connections to allow processors with Intel HD Graphics."

Gigabyte G1.Assassin Motherboard
     Thu, Apr 28 2011 | 8:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The G1.Assassin is the most high-end socket 1366 motherboard from the Gigabyte series "G1-Killer," which has a "gun-like" design and is aimed at gamer enthusiast users. It has eight SATA ports (six SATA-300 and two SATA-600), eight USB 3.0 ports, six memory sockets, and four PCI Express x16 slots. Let's check it out."

Radeon HD 6670 offers good performance
     Thu, Apr 28 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the end the AMD Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6570 are solid additions to an already crowded budget graphics card market. They definitely improve on the already solid performance and feature set of the Radeon HD 5600-series of cards and do so at the same launch-time price points. The problem that both of these cards have (and that many graphics releases are seeing recently) is the price merges that occur when higher performance, older GPUs go on sale or offer rebates to take a step down in market."

ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution P67 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was a dark and stormy night. It was somehow really bright, 'cause there was thy plug, with a little night light. Emitting a stream of photons, which has a 1:1 interaction with electrons [...] When my friend and I wrote this so-called poem in alternating lines back in February 2008 (As a joke in a Valentine's Day card for church fellowship, no less), we thought we were intrinsically creative and impeccably funny. You know, a matchless fusion of the art of using language and the mastering of scientific accuracy. Boys and girls -- for the boys, especially -- this is how the true meaning of art and science is derived. I can guarantee you right here and now, each and every girl who reads this will not be impressed by your nerdiness wonderful intelligence. Oh, am I starting a motherboard review introduction? In that case, we will need to exchange for a calendar that is two years older. In December 2006, it was indeed a dark and Canadian-December stormy night. It was really bright; under the illumination of a light that lit up the night. Beneath all this sits a FedEx package from ASUS' American headquarters in California, containing my first ever motherboard from the company for review. If I recall correctly, it was also the first 'workstation-class' motherboard from ASUS. And the ASUS P5W64-WS Professional was quite a motherboard to behold. The "Wall Street Quartet" -- a couple years before Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, and AIG became infamous overnight -- created a new niche in the computer market for users desiring a whole different combination of performance, features, and stability. That is, much unlike characteristics of the real Wall Street Quartet we got to know later on. Fast forward to 2011 and many workstation-class motherboards later, back in our lab is the latest and greatest from ASUS. How well does the P8P67 WS Revolution live up to the legacy of its predecessors? As always, we have all the answers for you here at APH Networks. Read on to find out what we have found!

Intel DH67CF Mini-ITX Board mit Core i5-2300 Quadcore reviewed
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Über zwei Jahre ist es her, seitdem wir zuletzt ein Intel Mini-ITX Mainboard ausführlich getestet haben. Damals hatte ich das "DQ45EK" (Review Link) aus der Executive Series sehr positiv getestet. Nun ist uns seitens CarTFT.com das brandneue "DH67CF" aus der Multimedia Series auf Intel H67 Chipsatzbasis für neueste Core i5 und i3 Prozessoren für einen umfangreichen Test zur Verfügung gestellt worden. Ich hatte ja bereits Mitte Februar einige Unboxing- und Assembling Pictures des Boards sowie des Testsystems präsentieren können. Nachdem bereits das zuletzt von uns getestete mITX Board aus der Multimedia-Reihe sich mit seinen Testergebnissen durchaus sehen lassen konnte, darf man gespannt sein, inwieweit Intel diesen hohen Ansprüchen gerecht werden kann." (...) Kurzer Auszug aus dem Fazit: "Die hier von uns verwendete Mainboard/Prozessor-Kombination mit dem Core i5-2300 mag aufgrund der 95W Wärmeverlustleistung nicht besonders sparsam erscheinen. Ich wurde im laufe der Tests jedoch eines Besseren belehrt, denn zum Beispiel bei Wiedergabe diverser Medienformate verbrauchte das System gerade mal 25W bis 35W, was sich sicherlich durchaus sehen lassen kann. Wir können das Board, das auch mit kleineren und günstigeren 2.Generation Core i CPUs ausgerüstet werden kann, für Systeme im Home Bereich durchaus empfehlen, sei es als Home Cinema PC (HTPC) oder auch als Desktop System."

InWin BUC @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 2:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The InWin BUC is an ATX and Micro ATX Mid Tower Gaming Chassis that currently retails for under $110 USD. Let’s take a look at the In-Win BUC mid tower and see if it really is “Ready to shield your components” the same way as the rider maneuvers his dragon with his shield and sword in hand to protect his castle, as InWin claims.”

Gigabyte E350N-USB3
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the E350N was a fairly simple task. I started by bumping the bus speed up in increments of five, then adjusting the voltage until it was stable. I finally settled at 110MHz @ 1.5V (+0.250V), which remained stable during all the testing. In addition, switching the memory multiplier from 5.3 to 6.6 yielded a stable 1333MHz clock on the RAM without any voltage increase. Unfortunately, I could not squeeze any extra MHz out of the GPU without causing instability."
