Intel NUC 5I3RYH (DinoPC) review
     Wed, Mar 18 2015 | 3:24A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you take a look at our review of Gigabyte BRIX S you will pretty much have the low-down on the latest version of Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing). DinoPC sent us a mini PC that uses NUC5i3RYH that is built around a Core i3-5010U, which is a mobile Broadwell CPU.

ASUS X99 WS/IPMI Review @ ocaholic
     Tue, Mar 17 2015 | 11:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WS-X99/IPMI is a high-end workstation motherboard from ASUS. The product name already tells you, that this board supports the IPMI, which is an essential feature set regarding workstation and server products, since it allows for full remote management. Apart from that you get a completely reworked layout and lots of other features on top."

ASUS' Intel X99 line of motherboard
     Sat, Mar 14 2015 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Going into the review for the ASUS X99-A motherboard, I did not know what to expect because of its placement as a "base level" board. I can truly say that the only thing that is base level about the X99-A is its feature set. ASUS performed their normal amount of design magic with this board, transforming what could have been a meh-type product into a true powerhouse. The X99-A features a similar power delivery system and design ethos used in the higher end ASUS boards (read that as the X99-Deluxe or Rampage V Extreme), giving the board some teeth when running it in stock or overclocked modes. For all intensive purposes, the X99-A is an X99-Deluxe board without all the bells and whistles."

ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There doesn't seem to be much that I don't like about the mini ITX platform. I get everything I want and need and compact platform. Motherboard manufacturers have figured out how to pack all the power, performance, and features into a tiny little package. What isn't there to like about it? I have used the mini ITX platform for building NAS and compact file servers, but I never really considered using the platform for a gamer or daily use machine. ASRock thinks they can get me to turn to the Dark Side and leave my ATX, bigger is better, roots for their Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard and the ITX platform.

Gigabyte revision issue
     Tue, Mar 10 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In late December, we posted an article on Hardware.Info in which we detailed how motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte develops newer revisions of existing motherboards that offer less functionality and/or worse performance, despite being sold using the exact same product codes and EAN codes (bar codes). Because we live in a world where orders between webshops, distributors, importers, and manufacturers are automatically linked, this might very well result in you receiving a product that's different from what you actually thought you were purchasing. In our article, we used a Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 motherboard to prove that there are substantial differences between revisions, both with regard to visual and operational aspects. Gigabyte has up until now, despite many reminders, not yet sent us an official statement. However, it does appear that they were prompted to take action, as the motherboards that were covered in our article and by many other publications have suddenly received new names and new product codes…

MSI X99S MPower Motherboard Review
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Forming the more competitively-priced option in MSI’s LGA 2011-3 OC Series motherboard range, the X99S MPower aims to balance the requirements of overclockers, gamers, and enthusiasts at a sub-£190 price tag. Can the features, overclocking functionality, and likeable yellow and black colour scheme attract overclocking users to MSI’s aggressively-priced X99S MPower?

ASUS TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 4:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
„The Sabertooth Mark S is a Limited-edition, arctic-camouflaged TUF ATX Intel Z97 motherboard with strengthened backplate and flexible cooling system for non-stop stability. This stunning board's first appearance was at Computex 2014, where it was exhibited under the codename ‘Sabranco', a portmanteau of Saber and ‘branco' (the Portuguese word for ‘white') — and most every visitor expressed their desire to take it home with them. Now the finished beast is ready for your build and they`ve called it Sabertooth Z97 Mark S!.“

Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H Black Edition Review – Back in Black!
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well well, it looks like we’re in for a treat! We have had the pleasure of reviewing the Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H Black Edition, and let us tell you it is an attractive board. Not only is it sleek looking, but Gigabyte’s Black Edition has more thAn just a coat of paint. To be sold as a Black Edition board Gigabyte tests each board for 168 hours (7 days). And while the 168 hour test goes on, each motherboard needs to pass a very rigorous, full system validation testing for a full week. Gigabyte has built a custom testing facility at their Taiwan factory. Gigabyte is the only manufacturer of motherboards still in Taiwan. This is important because Taiwan generally manufacturers better quality products when it comes to electronics.

MSI Z97 MPower AC Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 11:24A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97 MPower AC is MSI`s flagship offer when it comes to Z97 Express based motherboards. This board not only comes with a massive 20 phase digital power design but also lots of additional overclocking and gaming related features. Other than that MSI provided this board with their unique and good looking color scheme, where basically almost anything is black apart from a few yellow spots."

ASRock X99 WS-E/10G (Intel X99) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ASRock's X99 WS-E/10G is the most expensive Intel X99 motherboard on the market. But for good reason, it comes packed with loads of features."

First Look at USB 3.1 - The MSI X99A Gaming 9 ACK
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 9:29A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s demo has shown us that USB 3.1 (Superspeed+) is here and capable of some very impressive throughputs. The first generation hardware we tested today was not able to reach the theoretical maximum of 1.1GB/sec, but achieving those speeds may require optimizations extending outside of the USB pipeline (i.e. motherboard BIOS tweaks and Windows kernel optimizations). We hope to dive further into USB 3.1 very soon, hopefully with a closer look at the Type-C connector. More to follow on this front for sure!"
