GIgabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 3:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"How many of you remember when Gigabyte motherboards looked like they were made for a carnival? If I were to cover all the naming on the Gigabyte Z170X Gaming7 motherboard and show it to you, I don’t think you would be able to guess is was theirs at all. With the Z170 lineup Gigabyte has redefined their style."

ASUS Maximus VIII Gene Preview
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 3:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink

MSI Z170A Gaming M5 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Skylake and the Z170 chipset is here and we are going to take a look at one of MSI’s motherboard offerings for the Z170 chipset. MSI has done an interesting thing with their Gaming Series motherboards. Because other manufacturers have copied their naming scheme they have named their boards Gaming “M” to distinguish them. So today we are checking out the MSI Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard, this naming scheme makes me think of BMW models! The Z170A Gaming M5 sort of sits in the middle of MSI’s Gaming M series with the M3 below it and the M7 and M9 ACK above it. Each of MSI’s new Z170 Gaming motherboards are loaded with features and the Z170A Gaming M5 is no exception with Killer E2400 Gaming networking, USB 3.1 support, dual M.2 slots, MSI’s audio boost 3 audio solution, steel reinforced PCI-Express slots and much more! Let’s take a look and see if this is the Z170 motherboard for you!"

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Review
     Mon, Aug 17 2015 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enthoo Evolv ITX is the latest case from Phanteks, which features a compact form factor as well as space for high-end graphics card. Despite its small dimensions, there is actually enough space for a custom watercooling setup and therefore it might be a case that offers some rather interesting options. This case also comes with a large midplate in order to keep the entire setup clean.

Asus TUF Sabertooth X99 Motherboard
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Guaranteed reliability and enhanced thermal performance are the crucial principles upon which Asus’ TUF series motherboards are forged. A variety of military-grade certification tests, as well as five years’ worth of warranty, tackle the ‘guaranteed’ part of guaranteed reliability. The physical elements of reliability and thermal performance, however, are handled with a different approach which includes a mixture of customised engineering and specifically-chosen components.

Gigabyte Brix GB-BXA8-5557 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past I have taken a look at a ice variety of small form factor PCs. Out of all of them I was most impressed with the NUC. Not only did it have the smallest form factor, but it also performed extremely well. It really opened up my eyes to the possibility that only gamers and enthusiasts will be sporting full or mid-sized PCs in the future. We already see a lot of people moving to just using a laptop or even a tablet. So beyond the NUC I was really curious about other NUC like PCs like the Brix from Gigabyte. Well today I have the chance to check out the Brix GB-BXA8-5557, an AMD based PC that has a similar footprint to Intel’s NUC. Let’s see what it is all about and find out if it can hold its own in the performance benchmarks compared to the others.

ASUS Z170-A Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 13 2015 | 1:36P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Skylake is officially here! Since Skylake brings with it a brand new architecture and chipset that means we have a bunch of motherboards launching today! The biggest improvement on Z170 chipset is that you get 40% more high-speed I/O lanes (PCI-Express / USB 3.0) compared to Intel’s 9 Series chipsets. If you want the low-down on Intel’s Core i7-6700K processor be sure to check out our review, which went up earlier today. Our first Z170 motherboard review will be ASUS’s Z170-A, which is designed to bring you all of the features of the Z170 chipset, but at a very low cost. This motherboard has great hardware features like USB 3.1, SATA Express and M.2, but also great tuning options like auto-tuning, fan-tuning, and even the ability to use your mobile device as your keyboard and mouse. Let’s take a look and see what ASUS has in store for us with the Z170 chipset!"

ASUS Z170-A Skylake
     Thu, Aug 13 2015 | 1:35P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Z170-A may be one of the most affordable Skylake motherboards but its feature set and overclocking abilities are nothing short of impressive.

ASUS Z97-K Review
     Wed, Aug 12 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97-K from ASUS belongs to the manufacturer's Classic-Series and therefore it comes with a black PCB and champagne-colored heatsinks. This board certainly offers more than just a pretty color scheme like for instance an M.2 slot next to six SATA ports as well as a highly competitive price.

Using Asus Transfer Express
     Wed, Aug 12 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of us with more than one device that sees regular usage, keeping in control of where important files are stored can rapidly become a complex chore. And that’s without even bringing the differing backup and file transfer procedures of handheld devices into the picture. The Asus Transfer Express is a central control hub that aims to minimise file synchronisation, PC control, and handheld device usage headaches. Its functionality extends from allowing two PCs to share a single keyboard and mouse, to playing audio on your smartphone through your PC-connected speakers, to a simplified file synchronisation method between computers.

ASUS Sabertooth X99 TUF Review: USB 3.1 Tested
     Wed, Aug 12 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are back with another high-end X99-based motherboard on the test bed. This time around we've got the latest from ASUS, the Sabertooth X99 TUF motherboard, which supports USB 3.1 and sports ASUS' "OC Socket". The first wave of motherboards based on Intel’s X99 chipset launched with attractive features and eye-catching designs. But as time has passed, most motherboard manufacturers have continued to update and optimize their X99-based boards. The ASUS Sabertooth X99 TUF builds upon ASUS' initial offerings, but adds USB 3.1 support, some board-level optimizations, active cooling, and ASUS' TUF Fortifier...

MSI Z97A Gaming 6 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Aug 12 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI’s mid-range Z97 motherboard is the first to market with on-board USB 3.1 in the connection’s Type-C form. With the port providing transfer rates of up to 10Gbps and support for new reversible USB Type-C devices, can MSI’s Z97A Gaming 6 prove itself as a good option for users wanting maximum future-proofing of their system?
