Intel’s Z270 chipset ECS
     Fri, Sep 01 2017 | 2:44P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was impressed with the looks, build quality, and layout of both ECS Z270 motherboards. The Z270-LIGHSABER provided painless overclocking, with solid results from the auto OC function and granular control for custom overclocking if desired. However there were a couple of minor issues, described above, that seem to be BIOS or driver related. Future updates could make this a compelling choice - depending on price."

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Aug 28 2017 | 12:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I haven’t really had time to check out too many cases over the last few years but I’ve been trying to do a little catching up. On my very short list was a small ITX case that I’ve been seeing around all over the place from Phanteks. The Enthoo Evolv ITX is one of those rare cases that is priced like a budget case but seems to have some of the features and styling that you find in higher end cases. So I reached out to Phanteks and they were happy to send over the case. I’ve been testing it out with our Ryzen ITX setup and I wanted to sit down and talk a little about the case. So let's dive in to see what Phanteks has going on with this popular case.

     Sat, Aug 26 2017 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For those drawn by the performance of AMD's Ryzen processors for its performance/value and thinking about building a Kodi/HTPC media box for the living room, a Steam Linux gaming PC / DIY Steam Box, or just want a small form factor PC, Gigabyte's AB350N-GAMING WiFi is a mini-ITX motherboard that plays fine with Linux and offers a lot of functionality for its small size."

MSI X299 Tomahawk Arctic Motherboard Review
     Fri, Aug 25 2017 | 4:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's next generation HEDT platform is here, and weirdly enough, they are offering much more affordable quad-core CPUs for it. Understandably, these do not provide as much feature as the full-blown and more expensive HEDT CPUs, but the platform itself has become something that is more accessible to most people. MSI's Tomahawk motherboards provide good gaming value using Intel's mainstream …

MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon
     Wed, Aug 23 2017 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mit den neuen AMD Ryzen Prozessoren wurde auch eine neue Generation von Mainboards vorgestellt. Wie bei jeder Neuvorstellung ist am Anfang die Übersicht etwas verwirrend, mehrere Chipsätze, eine Menge neuer Mainboard, mit vielen Bezeichnungen. Wir haben uns für den X370 Chipsatz entschieden und als Hersteller wieder zu MSI gegriffen. Die schienen die anfänglichen Probleme mit den Boards gut im Griff zu haben. Als Modell haben wir das MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon gewählt, in der Preiskategorie im guten Mittelfeld angesiedelt und für den Anfang recht gut ausgestattet. Wer kein WLAN benötigt, normales SLI oder Crossfire ausreicht und die typischen Gamer Features haben möchte, ist mit diesem Board sehr gut beraten.

BIOSTAR RACING X370GTN AM4 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 22 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the X370GTN, BIOSTAR has succeeded to offer plenty of goodies, in a compact ITX format; due to a smaller VRM, the manufacturer does recommend CPUs with a maximum TDP of 95W, but if we do use it with a 65W SKU, we do also have some overclocking headroom. In our tests with the Ryzen 3 1300X, we have succeeded to achieve the same results as with the high-end Crosshair Hero VI from ASUS, by just setting up the multiplier and the voltage inside the UEFI interface, which is really easy to use."

MSI X299 SLI Plus @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 6:39P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you aren’t into flashy builds or if you are building a PC to be used in an office environment it seems like it is getting harder and harder to find simple but feature filled motherboards. Thankfully a few of the manufacturers like MSI have Pro focused lines. This is especially important with X299, a platform that overall seems better focused on workstation builds. Well MSI just happened to send over the X299 SLI Plus from their Pro lineup and today I’m going to check it out and see what it has going on.

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.
