     Wed, Mar 04 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink

It also comes with a custom audio solution. Join us in the Z97I Drone review, a product that will please the budget PC gamer with the hunger for a high-end PC at an incredibly small form factor.

Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK Black Edition Motherboard Review
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Longevity and reliability are particularly important purchasing decisions for a component such as a motherboard. Quite simply, your system’s motherboard failing can be considered not too far off a personal disaster. Gigabyte aims to put those reliability concerns at ease with the 168 hour, server-level validation process used on its Black Edition motherboards. The philosophy of Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable Black Edition series is to offer proven reliability and durability. Gigabyte backs up those quality claims with a certificate of validation from the 168 hour stress test, as well as an enhanced warranty program which covers the motherboard for 5 years.

MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC Review
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 2:04P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gaming 9 AC is MSI's flagship motherboard when it comes to their Z97 line-up. Therefore this model comes with all the features a gamer could possibly want. Apart from that MSI also equipped this board with a striking good looking design, which makes the model even more interesting.

X99 Charts: 11 Boards - ASUS X99-WS/IPMI

MSI Nightblade Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 12:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nightblade is the name of the lastest ITX gaming solution from MSI. Due to its compact dimensions and the high-end components inside, the Nightblade is a mini system perfect for everybody who need a lot of power or wants to attend LAN events."

GIGABYTE MD70-HB0 (Intel C612) Server Motherboard Review
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second GIGABYTE dual CPU Haswell-EP server motherboard enters the lab. Let's find out if it's just another server board, or a diamond in the rough."

ASRock X99 WS-E/10G Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The key attraction to this motherboard are the Two 10G BASE-T LAN ports by Intel® X540. A further two gigabit LAN ports by Intel® I210AT with all four LAN ports supporting teaming means this board represents perhaps the fastest LAN solution on the consumer market. We say consumer lightly though, perhaps 'pro-consumer/pro-enthusiast' would be a better description because this board may well have a massive amount of features including the 4 LAN ports, 4way SLI and a 12 phase power design the huge specification has a big price to match.

Shuttle XH97V w/ Pentium G3258 @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 10:36A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We now have the opportunity to test the XH97V from Shuttle. As its model number denotes, this barebone is based on Intel`s H97 chipset, making it compatible with 4th generation Haswell CPUs (its cooling system can support up to 65 W TDP CPUs). Shuttle advertises it as a blend of energy efficiency and performance, and our tests show their claims to be true."

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 9:03A | 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 with the thermal shield and apart from that there is a decent power design as well as an overall high quality. In the case of this motherboard especially the design is simply stunning and we're very curious if ASUS is able to convince us with this product.

GIGABYTE GA-X99M-Gaming 5 Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we get to look at the latest LGA2011-3 Socket X99 motherboard from GIGABYTE only this time it is far from the monolithic SOC Force we reviewed upon release. This time the motherboard is much smaller but still encompasses the Gaming-G1 branding so it will be interesting to see if this mATX motherboard still has what it takes to house Intel's finest range of processors or it is simply a diminutive but basic motherboard hoping to draw in consumers on the back of previous success and clever marketing.

USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ tested with the ASUS Z97-A/USB
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 2:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review USB 3.1 today alongside a RAID0 SSD based storage unit that is USB 3.1 compatible. With USB 3.0 performance is amazing at roughly 450 MB/s. With USB 3.1 we can reach speeds of an excess of 800 MB/s or even better over USB 3.1, and in this article we'll show you all the details involved, and some performance numbers as well of course.

MSI Z97 Gaming 3 mainboard
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 2:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HardwareOverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the MSI Z97 Gaming 3 mainboard. The Gaming 3 is the cheapest version in the MSI Gaming series. But what about the performance and features, is the 119,- Euro board enough for actually gaming systems`

Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H Black Edition Review
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 2:16P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97X-UD5H Black Edition from Gigabyte appears to be a rather interesting Z97 based motherboard. At a first glance you get SATA-Express as well as an M.2 slot, which adds to storage flexibility. Nevertheless the most important feature you get with this product is the quality testing Gigabyte is doing in-house on all their Black Edition models. Every single board, which belongs to this product line receives 168 hours burn-in testing before it is packed and shipped.

Gigabyte X99-UD4 Rev 1.0 motherboard Review
     Tue, Feb 24 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte X99-UD4 Rev 1.0 is an ATX form-factor motherboard, but they managed cram in 4x DDR4 DIMM slots on both sides of the LGA 2011 V3 socket and 4x PCIe x16 slots along with 3x PCIe x1, dual M.2 connector, a USB 3.0 header and a lot of SATA III ports. It goes without saying that there might be some ‘hit-and-miss’ with the layout, but that largely depends on which expansion and connectivity options you’re giving a higher priority to.
