Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to talk about not the very top, but also not the very junior model from ASRock. However, we can’t call it mainstream either. It is a very feature-rich mainboard that tends to be closer to the flagship models. The “GB” letters in the model name are an abbreviation from “Game Blaster” – a complex expansion card that combines the functionality of a network and sound card.

Biostar TPower X79 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 4:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I entered the world of computer gaming with a well-justified custom laptop my freshman year of college. The urge to build my own PC inevitably began to grow as I traveled to LAN parties and saw the creation of others. My first board was a hand-me-down Biostar with a lot of life yet to give. Five years later, it?s fitting that my first build with Sandy Bridge-E is from that company?s first socket 2011 board, the TPower X79. The TPower X79 is one of Biostars first attempts to branch out beyond the budget boards they are known for. I am excited to see what direction they will do and how it will perform."

Posted by: STAFF
There's nothing finer than a new chipset to kick the summer off, this year it's the Intel Z77 Express. In this review PCSTATS will put the performance oriented Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard, which is built on Intel's shiny new Z77 Express chipset, through its paces with the exceptionally popular 32nm 2nd Gen. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 'Sandy Bridge' processor. The main difference between the Intel Z77 chipset and the previous Intel Z68 is the addition of native USB 3.0.

Intel staggered the release of its Z77 chipset and upcoming 22nm 3rd Gen. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 'Ivy Bridge' socket LGA1155 processors to let each technology stand on its own two feet, but in reality the two are so complimentary you can't have one without the other.

Components on your wishlist are always in flux, as you decide which can be downgraded to save money and which can?t. My Electronic Circuits professor?s favorite answer to a question about component selection is always ?it depends?. I personally downgrade my choice in power supply and motherboard as a last resort when I have to get a PC under a restrictive budget. If you need proof of my rule of thumb I will be happy demonstrate with the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7. This time we truly saved the best for last. *"
