Sapphire Pure Black 990FX Review
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 10:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Pure Black 990FX is a beautifully crafted motherboard with a great layout and is made for the high end enthusiast who wants to stack up two or three big GPUs and and clock their CPU to maximum frequency. It is full of top notch solid capacitors, ferrite `Diamond` chokes and a long row of transducers with 8+2+2 phase power delivery. With Bluetooth and dual LAN in the back, and heat sinks that look like they could cap off Chernobyl on the front, this really great board is missing one crucial feature to truly fulfill its intended purpose of being an overclock powerhouse. It needs Load Line Calibration or Control. While I was able to obtain a respectable overclock on the FX-8150 of 4.6GHz, the silicon will be stable at 5.0GHz on a board with LLC. It is a feature that I cannot explain the absence of on high end enthusiast boards today."

ASUS P8Z77 WS Workstation Z77 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 10:31A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At stock operational speeds, the board was a performance powerhouse, easily running with whatever was thrown its way. Couple that performance with the boards ability to support 4-way NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFire and you have the potential for a gaming super-board. Add the gravy of ASUS superior implementation of their UEFI BIOS and you have a winner on your hands."

Gigabyte Z77MX D3H TH motherboard review
     Thu, Nov 01 2012 | 9:42A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Gigabyte Z77MX D3H TH motherboard. The Gigabyte Z77MX D3H TH is intended for Intel`s 22nm Ivy Bridge processors released moments ago based on Socket LGA1155 however the motherboard also supports Sandy Bridge processors like the Core i7 2600K. This particular motherboard is mATX based and thus has a very small footprint. That doesn`t mean though that there is a lot of power harbored in it, contrary it performs really well and even can overclock pretty good."

ASUS M5A99X EVO Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Oct 31 2012 | 11:46A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M5A99X EVO is quite feature packed for its price. It offers the latest USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps connectivity which are native to the chipset. The onboard JMicron controller takes care of additional features such as eSATA and powered eSATA for your external storage requirements. CrossFireX and SLI are available to make the most of whichever multi GPU setup you may have, albeit at x8/x8 rather than x16/x16. There are six SATA 6Gbps ports, all of which can be used to build RAID arrays."

MSI Z77A-GD80 with Thunderbolt Motherboard Review
     Tue, Oct 30 2012 | 10:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a crowded Z77 chipset motherboard, the GD80 is a great all around option. Beyond being a rock solid motherboard, the GD80 was the first Intel certified Thunderbolt motherboard. Even though it is one of the first Thunderbolt boards, MSI seems to have hit the ball out of the park on their first implementation. If you are interested in Thunderbolt, this very well could be the board to get."

Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has some amazing Z77 offerings especially in the ROG lineup. We have already looked at the Maximus V Gene and the Maximus V Formula, both of which were amazing overclockers with loads of features. Today we have the Extreme variant which is the very top model for the ASUS ROG lineup. It carries many features such as the OCKey and VGA Hotwire."

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WIFI Motherboard @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB is a uniquely designed motherboard that straddles the line between mainstream and high-end. The Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB is priced at $209, placing it within the mainstream segment but it is loaded with features that are only often found in high-end motherboards. Capable of PCI-E 3.0 multi-GPU setup up to TRI-SLI/TRI-Crossfire configuration at 8x/4x/4x, the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB is a solid gaming platform as well. For users who want to squeeze out as much performance possible from their Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge processors, Gigabyte has made it convenient with the addition of on-board buttons, voltage readout points, debug LED, dual-BIOS and an on-board BIOS switcher on the Z77X-UD5H PCB. Optional extra power can be added to the PCI-E as well through the OC-PEG connector, useful for extreme LN2 GPU overclocking. In terms of USB connectivity, the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H has three on-board USB 3.0 headers (2x VIA VL810, 1x Intel Z77) for up to six ports as well as four more USB 3.0 ports in the back. There are also two Gigabit LAN ports which use an Intel WG82579V, as well as an Atheros AR8151 controller. For wireless networking, Gigabyte has also bundled a Bluetooth 4.0/Dual-band WiFi card, capable of fast transfer rates up to 300 Mbps."

ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 Review
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 10:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it came time to overclock with ASRock`s E77 Extreme 4, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it could pull off the same overclocks as some if the high end boards I have used. It easily delivered a nice 1.2GHz overclock on my Core i7 3770K without any real voltage challenges, with the use of ASRock`s Digi Power VRM design and 8+4phase power circuit. Overclocking via AXTU was uneventful in that the utility worked to allow overclocking from within the operating system. Where I had some concerns was with the inability to run my test system memory at its native 2133MHz or even as low as 2000MHz. Voltages, timings, and the latest BIOS did not alleviate the problem. I understand memory incompatibilities and see them from time to time, but with plenty of modules with similar specifications and memory ICs on the QVL list, it is still a surprise. Other than that small hiccup, the board delivered performance to go with its good looks."

EVGA Z77 FTW (Moving Beyond Overclocking) @ Techreaction.net
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We would like to thank EVGA for providing this feature filled monster for our scrutiny. Yeah; many say over kill, we say Ports? Can we use them? Well yes we can! Where others see brag factor, we see utility, functionality and purpose. Well, right about now you may be thinking that this board comes with all those lovely x16 slots and dual CPU 8 pin power inputs and So what? We have seen the limits of the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge pushed. We know you can get 5 Gigahertz on air with sandy bridge and 4.7 Gigahertz+ on air with the Ivy Bridge. We know that other than minor differences that fall within the margin of error but the fact is Z77 on air, is Z77 on air. There is no competition from other companies so Z77 is it for the mainstream. We have a board with all of its papers and a proven pedigree that really never really gets to show off all of its other parts so there will be no real overclocking (everyone else can do that) this time around. We will instead focus on the strengths of the construction and component integration This board comes with the standard four SATA II ports and two SATA III provided via the Intel chipset and two more internal SATA III via Marvell internal ports, two eSATA, raid functionality based on the Intel chip, software raid through Windows and if that is not enough there are ten USB ports on the rear (4 USB 3.0 Spec) with an additional six provided by the expansion bracket (2 USB 3.0 Spec) and Dual GB LAN! We will use most of them after we get finished with the basics of the review."

Asus P8Z77 WS Review
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 11:13A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First and foremost we know that when motherboards have the same parts installed that they are going to deliver results within a specific performance envelope. That being said the ASUS P8Z77 motherboard I have tested delivered excellent results when compared to another Z77 chipset motherboard in terms of just raw performance. Once you peel away the performance layers you have to look at the build process and the feature set used for the P8Z77 WS. As a workstation product you can guess that the feature set is decidedly oriented towards a business class environment. To that end ASUS has an initiative called 24x24 where the boards are targeted for use 24 hours a day for a solid 24 months to allow the consumer to have a a reliable platform long term."

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.
