$539.99 Asus X99-E WS/USB 3.1 motherboard
     Mon, Dec 21 2015 | 3:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we've come to expect from high-end ASUS boards, the X99-E WS/USB 3.1 motherboard is a beast - well designed and engineered to take a beating. As part of ASUS' Workstation line, the board comes with all the power bells and whistles you've come to expect from that series - 12k-rated capacitors, Beat Thermal chokes, and Dr. MOS MOSFETs. The board's aesthetics are kept simple yet elegant with a base black design with chromed accents on the heat sinks. THe board layout is a thing of beauty with no real tight spots and everything put in easy to access locations, even with multiple GPUs seated on the board. Other than the price of the board, there are really no glaring issues with this beauty."

MSI Z170A GAMING M7 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The advent of Intel’s Skylake 6th-generation Core processors and their supporting Z170 chipset marks the biggest change in Intel’s consumer line since the original X68. While the Skylake CPU holds few surprises other than its support for DDR4 memory, the Z170 chipset finally brings to the mainstream market what it’s so desperately needed: more PCI-E lanes, and of the 3.0 variety at that! Of course MSI adds their own unique touches to this system and today Benchmark Reviews checks out the MSI Z170A Gaming M7 LGA1151 motherboard.

Gigabyte H170-HD3 (LGA 1151) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 1:48P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Z170 platform is designed for enthusiasts utilizing incredibly fast DDR4 memory and large frequency boosts on K-series CPUs. In contrast to this, the H170 chipset caters more towards the budget-conscience consumer running a CPU at stock settings and modest DDR4 speeds. So what are the key differences between Z170 and H170? Firstly, H170 motherboards cannot support memory speeds in excess of 2133MHz and limited to a maximum of 16 PCIe lanes 3.0 lanes compared to 20 on Z170. Additionally, the HSIO Lanes have been reduced from 26 to 22 and theoretically, motherboards are restricted to a single X16 graphics slot. However, motherboard vendors can offer dual card setups via Crossfire. The only other notable change is a reduction in USB 3.0 ports from 10 to 8 which should be more than enough for the average user.

Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 TH (LGA 1151) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s latest Skylake architecture is built on the 14nm manufacturing process and designed to replace the previous generation, Haswell Refresh CPUs. However, the Core i7-6700K is currently a poor value proposition throughout Europe and costs upwards of £350. While the Z170 motherboards are an affordable proposition, some consumers are still waiting for CPU price cuts before considering making the switch. Furthermore, the i7-6700K is priced incredibly close to the X99-based Core i7 5820K which contains 6 cores and provides enhanced performance in multi-threaded workstation tasks.

EVGA Z170 FTW Review
     Fri, Dec 11 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hello hardware enthusiast. Today we take a look at EVGA’s Z170 FTW. One of three motherboards available from EVGA for the new Z170 platform along with the flagship Classified board, and the M-ATX Stinger. Available now on Amazon featuring a new BIOS GUI interface, a highly efficient VRM, a CPU socket that has 1.5X the amount of gold content for improved signal quality, 4 DIMM slots supporting 64GB of DDR4 memory, and support for SLI + PhysX to name a few. It’s quickly apparent when examining the Z170 FTW that a no-nonsense performance driven state of mind has calculated the design. With the Z170 FTW EVGA has done something brilliant that is no easy task, they have taken something extremely complex, such as a Z170 motherboard, and made it look simple. Components on the Z170 FTW that were not necessary were omitted, essential components are top of the line and carefully calculated to over achieve.

Posted by: STAFF
The Maximus VIII Gene is one of the Intel Z170 chipset offerings in the ROG (Republic of Gamer) board line.

With an MSRP of $230, the Maximus VIII Gene offers a compelling price for a feature-packed product.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
