Gigabyte Z97X-SOC Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jan 10 2015 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte shipped its Z97X-SOC motherboard for testing, which was also used to test Intel Devil’s Canyon 4790K processor. The board uses orange and black colour combo and its aimed to attract gamers/ enthusiasts. In my opinion, having a motherboard designed and marketed specifically for extreme overclocking to a crowd where they’ll either use an air or liquid cooling solution (either closed looped, pre-built or custom) will make them look somewhere else, probably similar version of the board minus the switches. This is something that not just applies towards Gigabyte. Of most of the features that are embedded on the motherboards, such as OC buttons, voltage check, Power Buttons, physical BIOS switch, etc. gets ignored at times once it gets in a closed case system. Even if we round up all the ‘extreme’ hardware enthusiasts across the world and compare it with ‘normal’ hardware enthusiasts who also happen to a gamer, the latter has a significant user base.

Gigabyte Z97X Gaming G1 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jan 09 2015 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: Those of you familiar with the Gigabyte G1 series will recognize the subtle change in naming scheme which corresponds to a major change in the product line. Gone are the military names and Green and Black color scheme in favor of the popular Red and Black and a familiar icon.

MSI Z97 XPOWER AC
     Thu, Jan 08 2015 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At $379, the Z97 XPOWER AC is at the top of MSI's Z97 overclocking product stack and rightly deserves its place there. The feature set of this board compares favorably with the ROG offerings from ASUS in terms of functionality and just raw potential. Sure you can get one of MSI's other Overclocking or Gaming series boards, but you lose some of the features this board has to offer to save the coin. For the balls-out overclocker, this board can do it all.”

Gigabyte X99-UD4 Review
     Wed, Jan 07 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the X99-UD4, Gigabyte already has an X99 motherboard ready for launch day and this particular model comes with a reasonable feature mix and very attractive price. It doesn't take long until you see that Gigabyte did not overexaggerate equipping this board with additional chips, which is something that's reflected in the price. Maybe Gigabyte is capable of scoring big with this motherboard, since it looks like the X99-UD4 has the potiential to set the benchmark for entry-level X99 motherboards.

EVGA X99 Classified Review
     Wed, Jan 07 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink

The X99 Classified is the high-end X99 motherboard from EVGA and therefore it comes with a good looking design as well as a lot of features. Apart from that the X99 is EVGA's overclocking motherboard so you can combine it with EVBot and there are quite a few other interesting options.

ASUS X99 Deluxe Review
     Tue, Jan 06 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the X99 Deluxe, ASUS for sure has one of the most interesting boards ready at launch. First of all they're suprising with a new color scheme and as always with the Deluxe, there are countless features. A quick look reveals for example that there are two SATA Express ports as well as an M.2 x4 SSD slot. At this point we're already really curious to find out what this board is capable of.

Gigabyte-Z97X-UD3H Preview
     Tue, Jan 06 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97X-UD3H from Gigabyte appears to be a rather interesting Z97 based motherboard. At a first glance you get a good looking board for a highly resonable price. Other than that there is even a SATA-Express port as well as an M.2 slot, which adds to storage flexibility. Overall we're quite curious to see what else this board has to offer.

Asus A88X-Gamer Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jan 03 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sharp eyed readers will see a strong similarity between this Asus A88X-Gamer motherboard and the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming that we recently reviewed. Fair point. Both motherboards use an AMD A88X chipset to support Socket FM2+ and there is a distinct theme of red and black in the styling. Asus tells us the A88X-Gamer has a specification that is similar to a Z87-era entry-level ROG board, so you get SupremeFX audio with headphone amplifier, ELNA capacitors on audio and PCB shielding.

MSI X99S SLI PLUS On Linux
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For Intel Core i7 5960X Haswell-E Linux testing I originally bought an MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard as it was one of the most interesting, lowest-priced boards available at the time of the Intel X99 chipset debut. While I initially ran into some problems, those issues have now been confirmed to be isolated, and with a replacement X99S SLI PLUS motherboard I have been stressing it constantly for the past few weeks on Fedora and Ubuntu. The X99S SLI PLUS has now proven itself to be a reliable motherboard that's still among the least expensive X99 ATX motherboards on the market."

ASUS Rampage V Extreme LGA 2011-v3 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 2:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage V Extreme needs no introduction. It is the flagship of the ASUS Republic of Gamers aka ROG product line. If the pattern of previous Rampage motherboards holds it should be one of the best motherboards money can buy. Is the new ROG crown jewel still worthy of the crown at its $475 price point?

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
