ASRock A88X Extreme6+ Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 11:36A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock gear up ready for the latest APUs with the A88X Extreme6+ motherboard, supporting both FM2 and the new FM2+ APUs there is a lot to get excited for. Even though it only offers 2x USB 3.0 more outside the base chipset capability, it does sport various exclusive features such as Home Cloud and Purity Sound. Through these interesting implements, ASRock will be vying for attention from those seeking a competent, inclusive, yet affordable solution. Similar in appearance to the Intel Z87 Extreme4, the A88x Extreme6+ represents the high end of the scale for the FM2+ platform from ASRock, sitting just below the Fatal1ty FM2A88X+ Killer. Let`s move on to take a look."

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition review
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS wanted to make the ultimate X79 board with the Rampage IV Black Edition, and we'd argue that they succeeded. We can't really think of any other overclocking features they should include, and the overclocking scores of the board are excellent. If you're an overclocker and are looking for a new board, you almost have to get the Black Edition. However, its outstanding audio implementation (rare for X79) is another fine reason to purchase this motherboard.

GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 Z87 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jan 22 2014 | 8:31A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the G1.Sniper 5, GIGABYTE took their motherboard design prowess to an entirely new level. They took their Z87X-OC Force design and tweaked it to appeal to the high-end gamer crowd. It starts with the green, black, and chrome board colors, highlighted by the glowing logo eyes in the chipset cooler and the green board under-lighting. The larger E-ATX form factor gives the board breathing room to house all the required features without sacrificing on port placement or spacing. The integrated cooling offers enough variety to appeal to any user as well offering active air cooling or liquid cooling for the more hard-core enthusiasts."

ECS Z87H3-M Motherboard - Intel Z87 Chipset, 4K Resolution, Crossfire X Graphic
     Wed, Jan 15 2014 | 4:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This is an ECS Durathon board, which means it has the Triple Density moisture-proof PCB, ultra-high Extreme Temperature Resistance, and extra-stringent testing. ECS Z87H3-M features 100% durable, heat-resistant solid capacitors for an ultra-long, stable life, even with the serious electrical and thermal demands of the latest gaming hardware. Solid capacitors typically provide a lifetime 6 times longer than the electrolytic capacitors used in lower-quality products. Meanwhile external connectors, such as VGA, USB and LAN ports, feature heavy-duty ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, to protect delicate internal components from static and other electrical disturbances.

Up to 3 independent displays are supported, with 1 HDMI port (DP optional), 1 DVI port, and a VGA port to ensure compatibility with any kind of monitor. There's also 8-channel audio onboard for thunderous gaming sound and vivid music.

Unlimited Expansion and Upgrade Potential
ECS Z87H3-M features a host of expansion options. There are dual channel 4 x DDR3 1600 slots for up to 32GB of DRAM, meeting the demands of modern 64-bit operating systems. On board there are 2 PCI Express x16 slots for extreme fast AMD Crossfire X support (1 x Generation 3, and 1 x Generation 2 running in 4x mode), a PCI Express x1 slot, and also a PCI slot for compatibility with other cards.

There are 6 SATA 6.0 Gigabyte/sec connections, providing for multiple terabytes of internal drive storage. For external devices, such as disk drivers, printers, cameras, phones, and media players, ECS Z87H3-M offers 2 x USB 3.0 and 4 x USB 2.0 connectors - with internal headers there are 4 x USB 3.0 and 10 x USB 2.0 ports in total.

To provide compatibility with products, without wasting space on sockets, the board includes headers for COM/serial port, TPM, and LPT devices.

Unique ECS Features
Special ECS features include EZ charger technology to help users recharge phones and other external devices. Normally USB ports would switch to low current mode when the system is off, making recharging very slow. But EZ charger provides 3 times the current of competing products during S5 mode (system shutdown), recharging external devices rapidly and safely.

The exclusive ECS iEZ utility combines eBLU BIOS Live Update Utility, eDLU Drivers Live Update Utility - to keep the system up to date with minimal hassle - and eSF Smart Fan Utility, which reduces system noise while allowing the system to work safely at maximum speed when required. Additional features include Intel Smart Response, which combines the speed of SSD and the capacity of traditional hard disks, allowing huge data storage with fast access times. Intel Rapid Start Technology provides an almost instant start up.

The ECS Z87H3-M is the ultimate high-value motherboard for high-end gamers and demanding PC users, and will be available worldwide in January 2014 for the suggested retail price of $100.

Overall, the ASUS Maximus VI Gene is without a doubt an excellent motherboard from build quality and looks, boasting an 8-layer PCB complexity and high quality components, to the software bundle you can actually use and to the UEFI that improves upon the already great UEFI used in the last RoG generation. It is excellent all around and more importantly, the price is not too crazy considering the features you get , performance you can see and the potential you can unlock.
