MSI X299 SLI PLUS
     Tue, Aug 08 2017 | 3:57P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has gone and stripped "GAMING" and "X-POWER" from its motherboard, and what's left is what we've got to look at today. MSI's X299 SLI PLUS is exactly what its name says it is and not much more... or is it more than anyone could have hoped for?

Gigabyte AORUS Gaming 3 X299 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Aug 02 2017 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re back on our X299 test bench today, with the glorious looking Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 3 motherboard. This high-end motherboard comes with support for the latest Intel Skylake-X processors, including the new i9-7900X. While we’ve already tested the extremely powerful and feature-packed Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9, at £299, the Gaming 3 is around £200 cheaper than its big brother! Will that big price difference give us a big difference in performance? We’re certainly eager to find out!

MSI X299 SLI Plus Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 01 2017 | 3:26P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the launch of Intel’s Core X Series processors we have the brand new X299 chipset and with it a whole slew of X299 motherboards. With the big name players in the motherboard industry releasing multiple boards in different series it is really hard to choose what is the right board for you. One series we’ve been a huge fan of over the past few years is MSI’s Pro Series. We’ver reviewed the Z170A SLI Plus and their Z270 SLI Plus motherboards in the past and they provided all of the features you want without all of the pricey extras. This allows you to build a great system and have some extra cash to put towards other components. Today we have the brand new X299 SLI Plus which will give you all of the core features of the X299 chipset without all of the costly extras and bling on other boards. This is great as some X299 motherboards are going for $500! Let’s check out the X299 SLI Plus and see what it is all about!"

ECS Z270H4-I
     Sat, Jul 29 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: ”Before I poke at ECS, I want to point out that for this motherboard I can point out so many flaws because you will be hard pressed to find a Z270 ITX hovering around $100 that isn't ultra low budget or cheaply made. On top of that, components, marketing, and R&D costs money, and no company can get around this. Those factors have an impact on the final MSRP, which ECS has a very competitive advantage if you are looking for this particular form factor. However, not all is forgiven, as what stands out the most to me is placing the M.2 slot on the back. This in turn makes the feature a throwaway addition that serves little purpose. For starters, not all computer cases are made equally and from reviewing a few dozen and buying just as many of the years, I can tell you the standoffs for the motherboard are never the same. That means you will invariably come across one that has limited clearance. ITX cases tend to keep things very compact and a higher probability of short standoffs, which gives even more reason for concern. But say for the time being that height clearance is not a issue. You will then run into thermal throttling on practically any performance driven NVMe SSD because of lack of airflow on the backside and the inability to place a heat sink on the SSD.”

Gigabyte AB350N Gaming WiFi @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 26 2017 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s hard to believe that the Ryzen 7 launch was three months ago but with the Ryzen 5 launch and the recently Intel launch, things have just been crazy. During that time though I have been constantly on the lookout for ITX boards. AMD spoke about their X300 and A300 chipsets at the Ryzen 7 launch but things have been suspiciously quiet about them for the last few months but a few motherboard manufacturers have been working on their own ITX AM4 boards using the X370 or B350 chipsets. Gigabyte has finished up their variation and it came in late last week. I immediately started in on testing to see just how feasible Ryzen is in ITX. So let's take a closer look at the Gigabyte AB350N Gaming WiFi and then see how it performs!

ASUS ROG STRIX Magnus Review
     Wed, Jul 26 2017 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Magnus is a USB microphone, meaning it doesn't require any additional audio interfaces for high quality recording, and features 3x 14mm condenser capsules that are described as 'studio grade', along with various onboard controls, an additional USB port, as well as featuring customisable RGB lighting that is positioned in a way specifically to be seen by your viewers.

Gigabyte AORUS Gaming 3 X299 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 25 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be taking a look at the latest graphics card from Gigabyte Aorus. Their new GeForce GTX 1080 comes equipped with the updated and faster 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory. This means it should run a bit faster than the standard GTX 1080. Hopefully, that faster memory will help ensure the GTX 1080 can deliver better performance in resolutions above 1920 x 1080. Of course, it does cost a little more than the standard model. However, the Aorus range of cards is currently some of the most affordable 10-series graphics cards on the market!

MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium
     Mon, Jul 24 2017 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Overall, I was very pleased with the performance I was able to get out of the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium. The board is easy to use and provides an excellent user experience. Stock performance is going to fall in a set envelope for the most part and that plays out when you look at the stock results. The overclocked results were fairly similar as well with my specific Ryzen 7 1800X. It is, at best, a 4.1GHz processor with more voltage than the cooling could handle. However, at the edge it still performed admirably in the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium. Running at stock speeds won't do for the most part and MSI makes it easy to get the most out of the processor by having an easy to navigate and use BIOS implementation in the Click BIOS 5. The OC section is well laid out and easy to understand. Saving your settings profiles in the BIOS is easy, but just make sure you take some screenshots if you are updating the BIOS. Using the Game Boost button allows the user to use the preset clock speed options that go from rather mundane to speeds well above what the Ryzen chips I have are capable of. No harm there as you have a way to get to your overclock with little hassle.”

Intel’s Thunderbolt standard
     Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of Intel’s Thunderbolt standard in 2011, there was a hope that we would finally achieve external graphics nirvana. A modern, Intel-backed protocol promising PCIe x4 speeds (PCIe 2.0 at that point) sounded like it would be ideal for connecting GPUs to notebooks, and in some ways it was. Once again the external graphics communities managed to get it to work through the use of enclosures meant to connect other non-GPU PCIe devices such as RAID and video capture cards to systems. However, software support was still a limiting factor. You were required to use an external monitor to display your video, and it still felt like you were just riding the line between usability and a total hack. It felt like we were never going to get true universal support for external GPUs on notebooks.

MSI X370 Krait Gaming AM4 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those who have not kept up with motherboard naming schemes, MSI’s motherboard product line might seem confusing at first just because of the sheer amount of motherboards they offer. In actuality, they have the simplest and easily understandable one there is since there are only technically two: gaming and non-gaming (aka Pro series). Since we often don’t see much …

Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WIFI AM4 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 7:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most resounding question asked at CES 2017 after showing AM4 motherboards before launch is “Where are the ITX motherboards?”. That is really all you need to know about how popular ITX options are these days. Especially since it was not possible on AMD’s AM3+ platform with FX CPUs and definitely not going to be possible with AMD TR4 Threadripper
