Charts: 13 Socket 2011 Boards - MSI Big Bang Xpower II @ ocaholic
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 3:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far we`ve tested 13 Socket 2011 motherboards and we have to say that sometimes we got quite interesting results. What we`ve also done is, we have added power consumption values as well as a performance rating which allows quick comparision of which board performs best and which is the most energy efficient."

ASRock X79 Extreme9 Motherboard @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 4:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock has released seven motherboard models for the new socket 2011 platform, heavily betting that this platform will become more mainstream after Intel releases cheaper LGA2011 processors during this year. This time we will take a look at the X79 Extreme9, which is the most high-end (and most expensive) socket 2011 motherboard offered by ASRock at this time, with five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, eight SATA-600 ports, eight USB 3.0 ports, and a high-end, add-on sound card called Game Blaster."

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme BF3 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 4:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So then, great looking, extremely configurable and technologically advanced all wrapped up in a class leading package. It should certainly be a contender for the top spot among our X79 motherboard range we have reviewed thus far. As is always the case though, if you want the best then you usually have to pay the price and at just short of £400, the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme is anything but a budget motherboard. You do however get quite a lot for the money as we will see over the next few pages. Whether that will be enough to tempt you damage the bank balance only you can decide so sit back and have a read through the next few pages before making that decision as we take you through what is one of the finest motherboards to grace the halls of Vortez..."

A Futurelooks News Flash - GIGABYTE H61M-S2P-B3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge mATX Motherboard Review
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 9:24A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out a board for up-graders dragging lots of legacy stuff around ... * * *GIGABYTE H61M-S2P-B3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge mATX Motherboard Review* * * One question I often hear is what brand and model motherboard would I recommend for someone looking to spend the least amount of money to upgrade. The answer always comes down to the user?s particular purpose and peripherals needed to fill that purpose. A basic assumption users make is that they have to buy a model motherboard somewhere in the middle just short of the flagship to get the most out of the processor or peripherals. But that?s not always the case. For example, this entry level micro-ATX motherboard from GIGABYTE called the H61M-UD2-B3 offers the same advanced Sandy Bridge performance features as premium boards, but costs well under $100. Let?s see what it can do! *"

Foxconn A75M FM1 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Feb 13 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For users which are not pretentious, the A75M FM1 motherboard from Foxconn represents a solution to consider, in case we want to get the benefits of the Lynx platform, like the powerful IGP or the quad core APUs. For making this board even more attractive, the Dual Graphics feature should be enabled, along with the ability to be able to modify the memory speed and its timings.

Sapphire PURE Black X79N (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Sat, Feb 11 2012 | 9:53A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The company`s entry into the motherboard market hasn`t been a smooth one, even though, it started off well with the PURE Black X58. Following the X58 we saw the PURE Platinum P67 Hydra miss the mark. The release of the new AMD A75 chipset and the Sapphire PURE Platinum A75 saw the company again shine in the motherboard market. The shine was quickly taken off as the delayed Intel Z68 offering of the Sapphire PURE Platinum Z68 again lagged behind its competitors. From a pure statistics standpoint with the on again off again relationship we`ve had with Sapphire motherboards, the new PURE Black X79N based on the new Intel X79 chipset which we are looking at today should be on the mark. Before we find out just how performance on the board goes, though, we need to first take the time to check out the package that Sapphire are offering us here. From there we`ll take the time to have a closer look at the motherboard itself to see how the design of it all is. After that it`s time to get into the BIOS, an area that Sapphire has been a bit weak in since launch. With the move over to UEFI for the X79, we hope that Sapphire has been able to do something here that moves its BIOS in a positive direction. Once we`ve done all that, though, it`s time to really get down and dirty with the BIOS to see what kind of overclocking potential the new board has before we of course check out the performance of it."

ASUS Rampage IV Formula BF3 Edition Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage IV Formula motherboard comes in two versions: a standard edition and one that comes bundled with Battlefield 3. The Rampage IV Formula X79 motherboard uses a standard ATX form-factor unlike the wider E-ATX Rampage IV Extreme and the shorter Micro-ATX Rampage IV Gene. Like previous Republic of Gamers Rampage lineup motherboards, the Rampage IV Formula is designed for ultimate gaming performance as well as comfortable extreme overclocking. With the new Extreme Engine DIGI+ II bringing precise fully digital power delivery towards the CPU, memory controller and system memory, the Rampage IV Formula is stable whether you are using a regular air cooler or you are an LN2 extreme performance tuner. The Rampage IV Formula supports up to Quad-SLI or CrossfireX setups natively and provides superb network performance via Intel LAN plus GameFirst for the ultimate gaming experience.///"

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.
