Gigabyte X99-Designare-EX
     Tue, Aug 16 2016 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”My Core i7 6950X is a 4.3GHz chip day in and day out. The X99 Designare-EX was able to deliver that clock speed from the start. I was hoping that the board would give me just a little bit more, but playing the OC game with a 10 core chip creates a ton of heat to deal with. That being said, I was able to tune the core voltage a bit lower than I had to use with the X99 Sabertooth reducing the heat load. Not to the point that an AIO can cope with the load, but enough to keep the chip from throttling in prime95. In that respect, I have no issues with the board and it gets high marks.”

ASUS ROG Z170 board line
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Maximus VIII Extreme is the flagship in the ROG (Republic of Gamer) board line, offering supporting the Intel Z170 chipset. The board features the standard black and red ROG aesthetics in an E-ATX form factor to best accommodate the slew of features and supported options offered with this board. ASUS integrated black chrome heat sinks with integrated LEDs for a unique and customizable look. The board's integrated Intel Z170 chipset integrates support for the latest Intel LGA1151 Skylake processor line as well as Dual Channel DDR4 memory. The Maximus VIII Extreme may not be very approachable for most users at its $499 MSRP, but the price remains justified given the sheer amount of features integrated into the board and the included accessories.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-SOC FORCE LGA1151 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jul 30 2016 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z170X-SOC Force is one of the most advanced motherboards which have passed through our labs and is packed with a ton of features, hardware and software wise. Besides the 4-way SLI, the three M.2 32Gb/s slots, a beefy VRM, USB 3.1 support via Intel controller we do also have multiple options to overclock the system (via Wi-Fi, via the HW-OC tethering function, via the BIOS or via the Windows software), a well-optimized BIOS to handle overclocked memory without the need of tinkering with each and every timing or we could also remind that we can power up the board without the CPU installed."

ASUS STRIX X99 Gaming Broadwell-E Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jul 30 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X99 platform was recently refreshed with Intel’s Broadwell-E range of processors designed to offer content creators and professionals working with multi-threaded workloads the absolute best performance. Those with deep pockets now have the opportunity to deploy the world’s first 10-core processor outside of the Xeon family. From what I’ve seen so far, the new architecture hasn’t enticed existing users to upgrade due to the hefty pricing and value of the 5280K on the second-hand market. Nevertheless, it’s encouraged motherboard vendors to unleash new products which contain more gaming-orientated features. This is mainly because Broadwell-E motherboards are compatible with previous generation processors like the 5820K and 5930K. In particular, the 5280K became a firm favourite among high-end consumers due to the 6-core, 12-thread configuration which only cost slightly more than the i7-6700K. In theory, this should broaden the appeal of Broadwell-E motherboards sporting fresh and exciting designs.

EVGA X99 FTW K Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jul 23 2016 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of EGVA's products are no frill, hell on wheels, performance yielding beasts. What I mean by that, is rarely do you see EVGA products with extra "features". EVGA tends to spend more time developing how to get more performance out of their products. At Computex 2016, EVGA introduced a slew new and updated products, one of which is the …

BIOSTAR J3160MD Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new Braswell stepping comes with a tad higher CPU Burst frequency, the same amount of cache and HD 400 graphics from Intel; in the performed results, we can see it trading punches with the Celeron N3150 and the performance gain is quite minimal. With the J3160MD board, the manufacturer proposes a fanless design, which seems to perform well thanks to the large heatsink and low TDP of the Intel SoC. Enhancements to the build can be always performed thanks to the PCI-E x16 and dual PCI-E x1 slots, for installing extra storage and use the product as an entry-level NAS, but also for installation of a low-end to mainstream video card and a standalone soundcard in order to transform the setup into a light gaming machine or media center."
