ASUS Sabertooth X79 @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 1:28A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Sabertooth X79, ASUS shows the latest TUF-Series motherboard which is based on Intels upcoming X79 chipset and comes with a lot of features. For example the Thermal Rader is quite an interesting piece of software which allows users to monitor temperatures all over the board and adjust fan speeds accordingly."

MSI 990FXA GD-80 Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 10:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past the OC Genie one-touch overclocking utility has been excellent at giving the novice user a nice boost in processor speed for the small effort of pushing a button with no overclocking knowledge needed. On their Intel boards this works without a hitch but on the AMD side of the fence it may come down to needing some more time to iron out the details with the FX-8150. When it did work I was able to get an overclock of 4.02GHz which is just short of the 4.2GHz max you get under Turbo Boost situations. Kind of a disappointment considering how well it works on the Intel side of the fence. Manually overclocking the 990FXA-GD80 proved to not be a challenge except where the voltage to the processor was concerned. I had to find that fine balance of voltage taking into consideration what the chip needed to run the numbers. 4.84GHz was about all that I could get from the 990FXA-GD80 which is about 120MHz short of what the Crosshair V would give. Even with the lower clock speed, this amounts to a significant increase in processor speed of 1.2+GHz or around 33%."

Asus P8P67 Pro B3 Rev 3.1 Motherboard @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I know we have lacked in motherboard reviews lately, so today we are taking a look at a fairly new motherboard from Asus which is called ?P8P67 Pro Rev3.1.? This board is equipped with loads of overclocking features and should easily push our cpu to around 4,5GHz or more. Lets find out how this board performs!"

Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with all socket types, the motherboard isn`t really going to give a noticeable performance increase or decrease. If they did, the comparison charts would be slightly more interesting. So instead of buying a motherboard based on performance, it`s best to purchase one based on its overclockability, features, and sometimes even its looks. After using the Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum I`m confident in saying that it doesn`t fall short in the latter two of these categories. The one that I`m slightly concerned about is the board`s ability to overclock."

Asrock H61M / USB3 Motherboard @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 5:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at a motherboard from Asrock, which supports the new Intel K-Series CPU (1155). This motherboard is also equipped with USB3 ports, and built on VGA that supports up to 1080P Blu-ray playback. Lets take a closer look at what we can expect from the board."

GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD5 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 11:22A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79-UD5 has all the new features of the X79 chipset as you would expect, quad channel support, PCIe Gen3, SATA 6GB/s along with USB 3.0. Much like the MSI X79 GD65 motherboard we are comparing it to today, it too has 8 DIMMS capable of hosting 128GB. It boasts on-board switches, Ultra Durable power components and SLI/Crossfire support. So on the face of it these two boards are pretty evenly matched and appear to be perfect solutions for those looking for a mid-high end foundation of Intel`s Sandy Bridge-E processor range. Which is best? Well, you`ll have to carry on reading but I would advise you not to skip straight to the conclusion and there are many small differences between the two combatants in today`s review."

ASUS P8P67 PRO @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:13A | Motherboards | PermaLink

Lucid Virtu Universal Adds AMD and Virtual Vsync Support
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 7:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are looking forward to getting a copy of Virtu Universal software in our labs to start playing around with to see if it lives up to the claims presented by Lucid. By offering support for AMD platforms, mobile markets and now introducing a unique and interesting additional feature that enthusiasts and gamers could just fall in love with, this new software might be the must-have feature for motherboards in the second half of 2011."

Intel Core i7-990X Gulftown Processor and DX58SO2 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 4:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It should be obvious that the LGA1366 processor socket and platform is nearing the end of its life cycle. In all honesty, it lasted quite a bit longer than most of us thought after the release of Lynnfield and now Sandy Bridge into the same enthusiast market. What can I say, some people just love their Core i7-920 processors to no end ? we have a couple of them running in various outposts here still as well. If you are looking to build one of the fastest computers in the world and can deal with the fact that the Core i7-990X might be the top-out point for the platform, then Nehalem will fit the bill and I don?t think you will ever regret the design while using it."

AMD 990FX/SB950 Release: Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX and the MSI 990FXA-GD80
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 12:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For now, it is nice to see that AMD has finally released the official chipsets and boards that will support Bulldozer. Asus took a big lead here with their SABERTOOTH product, but historically speaking MSI is not all that far behind. A few BIOS fixes and perhaps a revision, and we have a competitive part from MSI that actually costs $10 less than the rather lean and sparse TUF product."

Layout und Design: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe @ ocaholic
     Mon, Nov 14 2011 | 10:34P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the P9X79 Deluxe, ASUS has a very well equipped X79 board in its portfolio regarding Intels upcoming new chipset. This board comes with a long feature list and it aims at power users and enthusiasts."

MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Nov 14 2011 | 3:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have been itching to release details of the Intel X79 chipset and now we can with our first LGA2011 motherboard review, the MSI X79A-GD65(8D)."

MSI Z68A-GD80 Revision G3
     Fri, Oct 28 2011 | 1:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Putting the screws to the MSI Z68A-GD80 G3 gave me almost identical overclocking results as the B3 revision did. No surprise there! The way to the promised land is through adjustments of the bclock, clock multiplier, vcore, and turbo boost settings. The CPU I am using needs the PLL overvoltage option enabled to reach a multiplier greater than 44 and really does not care to run over 47. But it is tolerant of increasing the bclock at higher multipliers. On this board, that equated to a bclock 105.6MHz. The vcore needed to get to 4.96GHz on this chip is in the 1.48 to 1.49 range, depending on the board and how the Load Line calibration options are structured to manage the vdroop. In this case, a setting of 1.485v in the BIOS would show as 1.472 under load."
