Intel`s CPUs currently dominate the enthusiast market, and for good reason. But has the company been able to carry the mojo that makes its Ivy Bridge processors so drool-worthy over to its motherboard line-up? With the company`s DZ77GA-70K in-hand, that`s just what we`re here to find out."

Gigabyte X79S-UP5 WiFi Intel LGA 2011 @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 7:47P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Got a ton of hard drives, and not enough ports? Looking to buy a RAID card, and found the $400+ pricing too much? What if you could get a motherboard, and a RAID controller, for less than a RAID card itself? Gigabyte says you can! The Gigabyte X79S-UP5 WiFi is no normal LGA2011 board - fitted with an Intel C606 chip instead of a standard Intel X79 Express, this Workstation product not only has eight SAS ports, but also everything else you need to build your own supercomputer."

MSI X79A-GD45 8D Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 6:30P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance you would be very hard pushed to tell the difference between the GD45 and its bigger brother, the GD65 because both boards are almost identical in appearance. There are however a few small differences which may tempt you to go for the baby MSI board over its stable mate."

Sapphire and ECS X79 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:48A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After looking at the lack of a heat sink over half of the VRM package I was leery of pushing too hard on the ECS X79R-AX. But push it did and offered up a higher overclock than the Sapphire Pure Black X79N by over 100MHz. The ECS BIOS allows the user to adjust the voltages in positive or negative increments instead of a fixed value for the CPU. By adjusting the vcore up and enabling LLC I was able to push the Core i7 3960X to 4653MHz using 1.46v."

REVIEW: ASRock X79 Extreme 11 @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 10:39A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The full array of Z77 motherboards has already been introduced throughout the industry and Ivy Bridge is now a mainstay for Intel. With all the hype and migration, many have forgotten about another viable, and arguably better, computing platform. Yes, the X79 platform is still alive and so are Sandy Bridge E processors. ASRock has one of the most comprehensive X79 lineups of all manufacturers, and now the ASRock X79 Extreme 11 has appeared to shake things up further. The Extreme 11 has seven PCIE 3.0 slots (using the PLX PEX 8747 chip), eight SATA III ports and eight USB 3.0 ports. This is on top of a boatload of other features as well. Needless to say, the Extreme 11 is surely built for the performance inclined user."

How to Find Out Your Motherboards Manufacturer and Model @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sooner or later you will need to know the manufacturer and exact model of your motherboard, especially if you plan to upgrade your computer, since the upgrade capabilities of your computer are set by the motherboard model you have. You will require this information if you perform a BIOS upgrade or download your motherboard manual or drivers. A BIOS upgrade is needed to make your computer recognize a new CPU, and the manual is necessary if you want to check how much RAM your computer is able to recognize or which CPUs it supports, for example."

ECS Advances Motherboard Durability + Stability with Hyper Alloy Chokes
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 3:55P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is pleased to announce their newest advancement in motherboard durability and stability with the implementation of Hyper Alloy Choke.  The next generation of ECS' gold plated Alloy Choke technology, the Hyper Alloy Choke are ideal for overclocking because of their high energy efficiency and heat reduction.

Under unstable currents or high stress workloads, standard chokes are more likely to burn out or result in a system shutdown. ECS' Hyper Alloy Choke offer 1.5x more stability thanks to ECS' advancements in choke technology and the high-quality raw materials that make up these chokes.

www.pcstats.com

Compared to standard chokes, ECS Hyper Alloy Choke are able to reduce heat 13% better, and they have a tolerating temperature range that is 50 degrees wider. The ECS Hyper Allow Choke also achieve much higher energy efficiency with 30% higher energy savings compared to the industry standard. With extremely wide stable operating temperatures and greater energy efficiency, ECS boards with Hyper Alloy Choke thrive in punishing overclocking and heavy power users' scenarios.

ECS's gold plated Hyper Alloy Choke are resistant to corrosion and oxidation which leads to longer and more dependable life spans. These ECS chokes are also more energy efficient, reducing power consumption and EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). This provides a safer and more stable operating environment for users.

The ECS Z77H2-A4 will be the first motherboard to benefit from the greater stability, higher efficiency, long life span of the ECS Hyper Alloy Choke. ECS will also implement their Hyper Alloy Choke technology on more boards in the future.

ASRock Z77E-ITX Mini ITX Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:32A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can honestly say that I wasn`t sure what to expect from a mini-ITX motherboard like the ASRock Z77E-ITX. I was afraid that it wouldn`t be on par or as capable as a full ATX motherboard. Once all the benchmarking is said and done though, I have to say that I am really happy with the ASRock Z77E-ITX motherboard. Sure we are missing a couple of things that are typical to an ATX or Micro-ATX motherboard, but that is more due to available real estate on the PCB than anything else..."
