MSI X99A Gaming 7 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 22 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The X99 Chipset has been around for a while now and it’s about time we had a look at another offering from Intel’s premium desktop chipset. There are not many PC enthusiast motherboard manufacturers these days, with a few of the major players disappearing over the last decade. MSI have been around from the early days, and have endured a lot of change in the PC builder’s world, and the latest ranges have very strong branding and marketing so you have a good idea what you are getting into."

MSi 970A SLI Krait Edition Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 22 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD 970 chipset is the mainstream offering of the AMD chipsets. It offers affordability with great features, with the ability to support a huge array of CPU’s thanks to the hugely popular AM3+ socket. The socket was first introduced back in October 2011 and offered the support of the newly released Bulldozer CPU’s. Despite the new CPU socket, many users decided to hang onto their AM3 motherboards as vendors were offering BIOS updates to support the new range of CPU’s.

Well MSI sent over their new Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard for us to test out Skylake and also to see what MSI has to offer in their new Z170 boards. Today I will be taking a look at their mid ranged gaming motherboard.

ASUS USB 3.1 Type-A Card Review
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It took some time to get here, but devices supporting the USB 3.1 standard are finally coming to market. Besides the obvious new logo and SUPERSPEED+ name change, the USB 3.1 standard doubles the transfer rate of USB 3.0 and the encoding overhead has been greatly reduced by doubling the block size. ASUS is bundling many of their latest board revisions with the USB 3.1 Type-A add-in cards and we got our hands on a discrete USB 3.1 card to try out!

MSI Z170A Gaming M5 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Skylake and the Z170 chipset is here and we are going to take a look at one of MSI’s motherboard offerings for the Z170 chipset. MSI has done an interesting thing with their Gaming Series motherboards. Because other manufacturers have copied their naming scheme they have named their boards Gaming “M” to distinguish them. So today we are checking out the MSI Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard, this naming scheme makes me think of BMW models! The Z170A Gaming M5 sort of sits in the middle of MSI’s Gaming M series with the M3 below it and the M7 and M9 ACK above it. Each of MSI’s new Z170 Gaming motherboards are loaded with features and the Z170A Gaming M5 is no exception with Killer E2400 Gaming networking, USB 3.1 support, dual M.2 slots, MSI’s audio boost 3 audio solution, steel reinforced PCI-Express slots and much more! Let’s take a look and see if this is the Z170 motherboard for you!"

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Review
     Mon, Aug 17 2015 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enthoo Evolv ITX is the latest case from Phanteks, which features a compact form factor as well as space for high-end graphics card. Despite its small dimensions, there is actually enough space for a custom watercooling setup and therefore it might be a case that offers some rather interesting options. This case also comes with a large midplate in order to keep the entire setup clean.

Asus TUF Sabertooth X99 Motherboard
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Guaranteed reliability and enhanced thermal performance are the crucial principles upon which Asus’ TUF series motherboards are forged. A variety of military-grade certification tests, as well as five years’ worth of warranty, tackle the ‘guaranteed’ part of guaranteed reliability. The physical elements of reliability and thermal performance, however, are handled with a different approach which includes a mixture of customised engineering and specifically-chosen components.
