Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Ultra Durable Motherboard
     Sun, Feb 14 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To expand on our coverage of Intel’s Z170-chipset, we now turn our focus to another Gigabyte motherboard for Intel Skylake CPUs. The Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Ultra Durable motherboard is up at the plate and has the budget-builder firmly in its sights. Conversely, the company’s pricey Z170X-Gaming G1 motherboard, which we previously reviewed, is loaded with premium features that enthusiast gamers crave. Features such as Bluetooth, WiFi, 4-way CrossFire and SLI support, baked-in liquid cooling accommodations, and the like, are all absent on this more svelte GB product. With much of the fat trimmed, Gigabyte is able to offer a formidable platform for Skylake at a more aggressive price point...

SuperMicro C7Z170-OCE (LGA1151) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SuperMicro is one of the most respected names in the server industry and synonymous with unparalleled reliability. Whether you’re after a rackmount, blade server system or workstation motherboard, there’s nothing on the market which manages to enthuse such a sense of rock solid stability. Recently, the company has taken their server roots and impeccable reputation into enthusiast consumer motherboards. This allows them to retain the server framework while offering more ostentatious motherboard designs. Additionally, SuperMicro’s highly refined production line results in a low RMA rate and each product evokes such a premium feel. While their previous attempts have been a little rough around the edges, it’s clear to see the rapid progress in terms of motherboard layout and visual exuberance. Typically, motherboard manufacturers opt for the gaming themed red and black colour scheme because it caters towards the core demographic and maximize sales.

ASRock H110M-STX and H110M-STX MINI
     Sun, Jan 31 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to Tom’s Hardware, one of the top picks of this year’s CES (Consumer Technology Tradeshow 2016) is ASRock’s mini-STX motherboard and mini-STX building block PC. Currently both models are powered by Intel H110 chipset, including the motherboard H110M-STX and H110M-STX MINI PC. This new form factor is smaller than your ordinary mini-ITX builds, yet still holds adequate room for a standard CPU fan, which makes it perfect for a powerful SFF sized mini-PC.


The world’s first STX model that supports a standard Intel box fan. Read more about ASRock H110M-STX and H110M-STX MINI PC at Tom’s Hardware .


ASRock H110M-STX MINI PC is mainly targeted for educational and commercial purposes. Users will have the freedom of choosing their own Intel 6th generation processors, as well as the right to cram in a standard Intel box fan. While the whole setup is much smaller and power efficient than traditional desktop systems, it is also way more powerful than the current NUCs in the market.
