ASUS F1A75-M PRO Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Dec 17 2011 | 10:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS F1A75-M Pro is an mATX motherboard that harnesses AMD`s new A-series Fusion processors. The ASUS F1A75-M Pro has multiple VGA output support and is capable of dual independent displays through the HDMI/DVI and D-Sub port. Powered by the new Hudson D3 chipset, the ASUS F1A75-M Pro natively supports six SATA3 6 GB/s ports, ten USB 2.0 ports and four USB 3.0 ports. Improving upon this design, ASUS has added a pair of USB 3.0 ports powered by an Asmedia USB3 controller and has equipped the F1A75-M Pro with 4 + 2 power phase DIGI+ VRM for excellent overclockability. Much like the new AMD Llano APUs, the ASUS F1A75-M Pro combines advanced and flexible DirectX11 performance with a smaller profile and energy efficient design, pushing the boundaries of mainstream computing beyond expectations."

ASRock X79 Extreme9 X79 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 4:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I had never really used ASRock boards in the past, on a personal level, and only being in charge of motherboard reviews saw me having a glance at their potential. After looking at their Z68 boards, I instantly knew they had something special going on. X79 confirmed this, when we looked at the X79 Extreme4 which was one of the best looking boards that had passed through my hands. It also showed great performance and utilised the new X79 structure in terms of benchmarking, overclocking and a nice, easy to use UEFI BIOS. After concluding the Extreme4 with our "Editor's Choice" award, we were extremely keen to see what the other boards in the X79 range were capable of, as the Extreme4 comes in as an entry level motherboard in ASRock's X79 product lineup. Today sees us taking a look at their top-end Extreme9 X79 board, which offers up a full ATX form factor layout, with eight DDR3 DIMM slots, and a whopping five PCI-Express x16 slots ready for the most extreme gaming experience. Whilst this board isn't aimed specifically at gamers, it looks to be more than capable to push things to the extreme, and with a product marketed into the "Overclock King" range of boards, we're more than aware of the overclocking ability that this board should include. Due to that, we wanted to get straight into looking at how this board can cope with our 3960X Extreme Edition processor cooled by the Corsair H80 and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory. It all seems to be a match made in heaven, at least on paper, so let's get to it and start with taking a look at what ASRock offer in this extreme motherboard, for extreme users.

Asus M5A99X EVO and Asus M5A97 EVO: two Simpler Mainboards for AMD Bulldozer
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 4:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To study the design and functionality of the mainstream and entry-level chipsets for the AMD Bulldozer platform we decided to go with two mainboards from Asus: Asus M5A99X EVO and Asus M5A97 EVO, based on AMD 990X and AMD 970 chipsets respectively. In our today’s review we are going to compare them against one another as well as against the previously tested mainboards on the top Socket AM3+ core logic set.

ASRock X79 Extreme4 (Intel X79) Motherboard
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 4:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just absolutely powering through the motherboards we have on offer today, we're going to look at the first of the three ASRock boards that we have currently sitting around us. Outside of the Extreme4 that we'll be looking at today, we also have the awesome looking Micro-ATX X79 Extreme4-M and the new ultra high end board from the company - the X79 Extreme9. Today is all about the $234.99 US X79 Extreme4 and isn't just the cheapest X79 board we've looked at, but it's actually one of the cheapest X79 motherboards currently on the market period. What's that mean, though? Are we missing out on things we need when compared to some of the ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI boards we've looked at? Maybe performance isn't as strong?"

The MSI P67A-GD80 makes a comeback with a new revision now that Intel was able to cure the SATA woes plaguing its P67 and H67 motherboards with an updated B3 chipset stepping. Even without the updated chipset, the GD80 looked like a strong contender for enthusiasts wanting to make the leap to new Intel CPU architecture thanks to its features. Now see how revised motherboard fares in our latest $200 motherboard review."

A Futurelooks News Flash - ASRock A75M-ITX FM1 Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

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 takes a look at an AMD A75 board that`s smaller than your usual suspects ... *ASRock A75M-ITX FM1 Mini-ITX Motherboard Review** * I believe that the AMD APUs are the only choice for a single chip HTPC solution and I stand by that statement. The best possible option would be paired with an mini-ITX motherboard and a very small form factor case. Using the right cooling solution, you could build a very power HTPC that is no larger than a Nintendo Wii and just as quiet, allowing you to enjoy all your media in your living room. Today, we are going to see if the ASRock A75M-ITX motherboard at an MSRP of $89.99 is the board to fit that role. Let?s check it out! * * *"

ASUS P9X79 Pro (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the ASUS boards we`ve looked at which include the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, the ASUS Sabertooth X79 along with the P9X79 Deluxe we linked to just above as well, the P9X79 Pro is actually the cheapest option out of the four boards we`ve checked out. What does the drop in price mean, though? We`ll find out about the performance soon enough, but the first thing we need to do is look at the package and while we`ve already checked out the box in our original preview, we didn`t get a chance to look at the contents of the box."

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.
