ASUS Z97-Deluxe & Z97-A Review
     Tue, Aug 19 2014 | 11:13A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at the baseline performance, I did not see anything terribly out of the ordinary as you might expect. All Z97 boards will perform within a specific envelope when equipped with identical hardware. Overclocking follows this guideline for the most part. Between the Z97-A and Z97-Deluxe NFC & WLC, the maximum overclock was within 21MHz board-to-board, showing that you get the same overclocking experience from top to bottom of the product stack. By manually tuning the Z97-A, I was able to use bclock multiplier overclocking, while the Z97-Deluxe needed a little more finesse and massaging of the bclock to reach its maximum speed of right around 4.7GHz. It took more of a time investment for the maximum clock speed on the Deluxe, but that`s part of the allure of overclocking."

ASUS Maximus VII Formula Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Aug 18 2014 | 11:13A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Maximus VII Formula, ASUS actually surprised us, since we did not expect this board to arrive already now. Like with the predecessor you get an Armor and the same characteristic looks as with the Maximus VI Formula. Furthermore there is an armada of features, which should make this board appealing to overclockers, modders, enthusiasts as well as - obviously - gamers."

ASRock Z97 OC Formula Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 2:51A | 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."

MSI Z97 XPOWER AC - Extreme Overclocking for the new Haswell - Bjorn3d.com
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 7:43A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Oh Overclocking, it seems to be whats makes the world go round some days and something that many motherboard manufacturers have really started to embrace as easier ways were found to do it. It used to be back in the old days (not that long ago but it makes it feel more special to reference as so) that overclocking required a ton of work, modding and hacking away at things to make it happen. Now days overclocking is simple, they even have buttons to do overclocks for you. And with recent chipset and CPU revisions it has become a game of binning chips to find a good one rather than tuning all night and days on end with a QX9650 because you know theres more in it, or getting a specific board because it tends to clock better. At least for now those days are gone and its all very heavily based on the quality of the chip to control just how far your overclocking journey will go. The board we have in front of us today, the MSI Z97 XPOWER AC, is designed to ensure you can squeeze every ounce of performance out of your CPU and should you get a awesome gem of a CPU it has all of the necessary parts in place to ensure that you can freeze it and tear through the perceived limits toward world record glory.

MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC MSIs top tier gaming offering - Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 7:43A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI looks to be hitting Z97 pretty hard with not just a gaming board but a full line along with OC series boards and even standard boards so now this begs the question. If offering so many SKUs will it pay off in better customer satisfaction byhaving plenty of options of models to meet their needs or will it be a case of too many options and actually confuse the consumers? That is one of the risks board manufacturers take when they start to expand to multiple lines each with growing numbers of options and SKUs. Now to the board we have today which is the MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC which is the top end of the MSI gaming series models. The AC moniker denotes the addition of 802.11 AC WiFi to the mix ensuring absolute connectivity solutions. "

Posted by: STAFF
MSI mainboards don’t seem to have improved much with the transition from Intel’s Z87 to Z97 chipset. Although they have actually got better in some aspects, there are some “buts” that prevent us from calling the tested model perfect

Posted by: STAFF
The mainboard has comfortable design, good features set and basic bundle. It has good overclocking power and typical performance. The mainboard has many pros, but we found one very bad thing: power consumption of GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 is too high.

Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE Review
     Sun, Aug 10 2014 | 3:53P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Along that line, overclocking the Hi-Fi Z97WE proved to be fairly easy once I found my way around the BIOS. I finished my overclocking with a clock speed of just over 4.6GHz, which puts the Hi-Fi Z97WE within 50MHz of most of the boards I have tested. It pretty much gave me about as much as I can get with the chip I used. Performance still seemed a little off, but more tuning and digging further into the memory sub timings would likely fix this. As an overclocking motherboard, the 10-phase power circuit seems to do the trick in delivering consistent power to the processor."

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.
