ASUS Rampage V Extreme LGA 2011-v3 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 2:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage V Extreme needs no introduction. It is the flagship of the ASUS Republic of Gamers aka ROG product line. If the pattern of previous Rampage motherboards holds it should be one of the best motherboards money can buy. Is the new ROG crown jewel still worthy of the crown at its $475 price point?

Asus Maximus Vii Hero Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 1:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you first set your eyes on the MAXIMUS VII HERO, you notice how good this board actually looks. Like most of the ROG products, this board has a red and black scheme with a matte black PCB and red highlights dotted around the heat sinks and expansion slots. However, there are also some bright red sections on the PCB, as well as some red LEDs on the chipset heat sink, which makes this board really stand out from the competition. Your not just paying for some LEDs though, this bad boy comes loaded with great features.

Asus Maximus VII Gene Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 12:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are a gamer or If you have a passion to overclock, tweak, tune and what have you, the Maximus VII line were practically made for you. The Maximus VII Gene is part of the R.O.G. Lineup in motherboards for Asus, we have the Formula, Hero, Gene and then the Impact, where you are scaling in size alone. The retail price of the Maximus VII Gene is $219.99, making it one of the more expensive current mATX motherboards currently, compared to Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI, but for what it brings you I believe it is well worth every cent.

ASRock M8 Z97 Mini-ITX SFF System Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 9:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first saw the ASRock M8 Z87 small form factor barebones in the second half of 2013 when it was reviewed by my colleague Luke Hill. This latest Z97 version is a relatively minor refresh with an update to Intel’s latest Haswell compatible Z97 chipset. The SFX power supply has been upgraded from 450W to 600W and that appears to be the extent of the changes.

The AMD 990FX Chipset has been around for a while now, but it has recently come back into the spotlight with the release of a few new CPUs from AMD’s FX series.

ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac Intel LGA1150 Mini-ITX Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 6:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today at OCinside.de we test a very small but powerful Mini-ITX motherboard, the ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac with Wi-Fi 802 11ac / Bluetooth v4.0 module and external WiFi antenna. Amazing - on the top of the mini ITX mainboard is not enough space to meet all your wishes, so ASRock has continued without further ADO on the back of this ITX motherboard. The ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard is based on the Intel Z97 chipset and offers even a M.2 slot, a mini PCIe slot and a PCIe slot, up to six USB 3.0 ports, up to six SATA3 ports, SATA Express, digital sound output via optical S/PDIF output, TPM, DisplayPort, DVI-I, HDMI output, HDMI input, Gigabit LAN port, and much more, which is by no means usual for such tiny boards. Let us see what else this LGA1150 ITX mainboard has to offer.

ASRock X99 OC Formula Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 5:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In case you missed our recent review of the Core i7 5960X, Intel’s first consumer eight-core CPU is an all-round powerhouse with strong overclocking potential to boot. So what better way to analyse ASRock’s X99 OC Formula motherboard than by pushing our 5960X as far as we can take it? ASRock’s Z87 OC Formula was one of the best LGA1150 motherboards that we ever tested, but can the LGA2011-3 X99 OC Formula live up to the success of its sibling?

ASRock X99 Extreme11 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 3:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the highest possible compute performance that consumers can purchase, Intel’s Haswell-E processors and the X99 chipset make a viable combination for users with demanding workloads. If the price, features, and performance are right, there’s nothing stopping a semi-professional buying a consumer-grade motherboard to house their LGA2011-3 CPU and DDR4 memory.

ASRock X99 WS LGA 2011-v3 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock comes to us with its "Work Station" version Haswell-E motherboard. This time our out-of-box experience with its X99 WS was as rock solid as it could be and did leave us with feelings of getting to work with a quality component. As you all know, we are much more interested in how it performs at high clocks while under stress.

Gigabyte motherboard revisisons present markedly different test results
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 6:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you may have noticed, there have been some rumours regarding different Gigabyte motherboard revisions. Hardware.Info acquired some newer versions of the B85M-D2V and B85M-HD3 motherboards and tested these to compare to the original 1.0 revisions. The test results are shocking: the Rev 2.0 of the D2V lacks a number of components and even misses a feature from the official spec list (Dual BIOS), the Rev 2.0 of the HD3 performs significantly worse than the 1.0 version, thanks to a vastly decreased number of mosfets leading to rapid CPU throttling and severely decreased performance. We’ve asked Gigabyte for a response to our findings, but have yet to receive one. Meanwhile, you can read all about it in the article below:

X99 Gaming G1 is GIGABYTE's flagship product
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 3:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GIGABYTE X99 Gaming G1 WIFI motherboard is a well designed product, combining the Gaming series aesthetics with a wide assortment of integrated features. GIGABYTE tried to keep everything in-line with the board's Gaming series color scheme, adding red LEDs to the chipset heat sink as well as to the audio PCB separator line. Their was a lot of work put into the layout of the integrated components, most obvious with the CMOS battery location and design of the stacked mPCIe and M.2 slots. The heat pipe connecting all on-board heat sinks was a masterful stroke, alleviating overheating concerns when using the board with a CPU cooler without active airflow. Performance-wise, the board holds its own at stock speeds with seemingly untapped overclocking potential as well."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
