ASUS TUF Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Apr 05 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

AMD’s new AM4 platform is fresh on the market but the overall investment cost is still high with the current crop of Ryzen 7 CPUs starting at more than £300. What if you have an AMD FX-series processor that you are happy with and simply want a new motherboard with a more up-to-date feature set? Maybe your current AM3+ motherboard is on its last legs and you simply want a drop-in replacement rather than a new processor, memory, and cooling hardware. We look at ASUS’ TUF Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 to see if it’s still a worthy option for AM3+ buyers.

ASUS PRIME X370 PRO Review
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PRIME X370 PRO comes in as amongst the cheapest X370 motherboards available and misses out some of the perks of the platform, such as SATA express, or an NVMe port, which aren't yet commonly used standards, but it does feature an M.2 socket and a front panel USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, technology that is undoubtedly becoming much more mainstream.

ASUS ROG STRIX Z270G Gaming mATX Motherboard Review
     Sat, Mar 25 2017 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiast look at the standard ATX motherboard because it usually includes more features than their little brothers mATX or mITX. Over the past several generations of motherboards, that has been changing to where a new mATX motherboard can include nearly every feature that a standard ATX motherboard can. However, due to the size difference there are a few things that are cut out, mainly extra SATA/SATA-Express ports and support for Three-way SLI or CrossFire. Out of ASUS’ nine different Intel Z270 motherboards, there is only one that is a mATX board, the ASUS ROG STRIX Z270G Gaming.

ASUS ROG Maximus IX Formula
     Thu, Mar 23 2017 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”With very few exceptions, the Maximus IX Formula is another step forward in the evolution of ASUS' ROG brand. The red and black theme never gets old and you can surely stick to it if you want to do so. However, ASUS' AURA Lighting and AURA SYNC technology takes the visuals a little bit further, well, a lot further away from the red and black, actually. Using ASUS' AURA Lighting controls you can set the LED accents on the Maximus IX Formula to any color in the rainbow with up to nine different lighiting patterns. It's interesting just to sit back and watch it. To take the RGB lighting control a bit further, you can connect RGB LED strips to the pair of headers that are also managed by ASUS AURA. If you purchase ASUS SYNC compatible peripherals you can essentially match the LED lighting theme throughout your ecosystem. Built with a decided bent toward gamers, the ROG brand is also the premier overclocking solution in ASUS' product stack. Built with hardware that supports overclocking and the software package, and UEFI BIOS to back it all up, you can get the most out of your installed hardware. In the two comparison boards, my Core i7 7700K is, at best, a 4.95GHz chip that takes about 1.375v to 1.39v to maintain stability at that level. Thanks to ASUS' Extreme Engine Digi+ all-digital VRM, TPU, and Pro Clock chips, this CPU does indeed hit 5GHz for daily use with an applied 1.36v. By manually tuning the clock speeds to 102MHz x 49, 5GHz was easy to reach, with a cache ratio of 45 and memory speed of close to 3700MHz."

Gigabyte X99-Designare EX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 23 2017 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The main selling point of the Gigabyte X99-Designare EX is the Thunderbolt 3 via USB Type-C to provide a theoretical bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s, twice than Thunderbolt 2. To take advantage of this, Gigabyte provided a DisplayPort-In so that you can daisy-chain six Thunderbolt devices and drive a 4K monitor. It also provides 36w from it to power and charges several devices. There are two U.2 ports, of which one of them won’t work if you’re not pairing it with a 40-PCIe lane SKU. A support for 22110 M.2 is also appreciated as it stays future ready if you plan on buying a large M.2 storage. You’ll know more as we move on!
