     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 1:36P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Biostar's latest Haswell motherboard sells for only $125, but it's specced like pricier alternatives. You get an overclocking-friendly Z97 chipset, PCIe slots primed for multi-GPU configs, an M.2 slot for next-gen SSDs, and upgraded audio hardware. We spent some quality time with the Hi-Fi Z97WE to see what it's really like, and you might be surprised by what we learned.

ASRock Z97 OC Formula Preview @ ocaholic
     Wed, Jul 16 2014 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97 OC Formula is ASRocks new high-end motherboard when it comes to overclocking. There is also a beefed up audio solution with a very decent headphone amp, which makes this board even more interesting for gamers too. What you also get with this board is ASRocks Conformal Coating, which basically makes this board waterproof. It`s especially extreme overclockers who will love this feature. Overall we`re really curious about this motherboard. ASRock has been investing quite some extra time in crafting this board and now we really want to know what it can do."

BIOSTAR HI-FI Z97WE Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jul 16 2014 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If there is one type of component which has a saturated market it is motherboards. Thinking back a generation or two of Intel chipsets we can remember one manufacturer having over twenty different models just on that one socket…TWENTY. Of course that means a wide selection of price and feature options for consumers. A similar thing is happening on the Z97 platform and mixed in with some craziness from various manufacturers are others which are much more focused in their board releases. On our test bench today is the Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE which looks to deliver many of the features of the competition such as enhanced audio and M.2. support but at a more aggressive price point."

MSI Z97 XPower Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 15 2014 | 5:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI did a nice job with the XPower board refresh embodied in the Z97 XPower AC motherboard. While the board updates were more subtle than those of other manufacturers, MSI did make some welcome additions to the board to make it a good invested in comparison to the Z87 version board. The most obvious updates are in the CPU VRM heat sink design with the Z97 XPower having an illuminated XPower logo as well as the addition of water barbs to the VRMs. While the VRM heat sink remains disconnected from the chipset heat sink, the ability to integrate the sink into an existing water loop is a welcome addition. Further, the integrated Wi-Fi solution was update to an 802.11ac capable adapter, there is a 10Gbps-capable M.2 port included, and the integrated overclocking controls were improved upon."

Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE is certainly one of the top motherboard manufacturers out there these days, and their G1 Series of motherboards have been running strong for a number of years now. Today I have the chance to get my hands dirty with the latest in the G1 series, the GIGABYTE Z97X-Gaming G1 WiFi-BK Intel Z97 Motherboard. The Z97X-Gaming motherboard isn?t for the budget minded individual, with a retail price of $379.99 it?s meant for the elitist that wants the best of the best and is planning on running multiple graphics cards..."

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97WE LGA1150 Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Fri, Jul 11 2014 | 11:30A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first Z97 board from BIOSTAR takes part of the mainstream segment, but is packed with enough features to keep potential buyers happy while keeping the price to a minimum. Besides the Broadwell future compatibility, we have Dual GbE LAN with Link Aggregation support, one PCI-E M.2 connector which supports high-speed SSDs and the audio interface is isolated for providing minimum background noise."

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 Preview @ ocaholic
     Wed, Jul 09 2014 | 11:30A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their TUF series motherboards ASUS, have rather interesting products in their portfolio. Next to their unique design, these boards feature good cooling, which in this case is all about more fan headers than you usually get at this boards price point. Other than that there is a potent power design and overall the ASUS Z97 Sabertooth appears to be a high-quality motherboard."

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.
