GIGABYTE G1-Killer Sniper 5 Z87 Gaming Motherboard
     Sat, Jan 11 2014 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GIGABYTE G1-Killer Sniper 5 is something of an experience somewhere between that of a beautiful musical sonnet and a shot fired from 1,000 yards. It’s designed to be an epic gaming motherboard that should enhance the gamer experience yet it seems to be capable of much more. While the Creative audio processor provides an improved gaming experience, it’s the new OP AMP (AMP UP) that gives the Sniper 5 an impressive gaming voice. All kinds of video game genres enjoy enhanced volume allowing gamers to hear and experience sounds in games they probably never knew were there. High definition movies and music will share the same experience. Just tweak and tune til your heart’s content with swappable OP AMPs."

     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 5:23P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI Z87I Gaming AC is a very nice mini-ITX board with a good set of gaming-oriented features and more than enough tweaking options. It's one of the best Haswell mini-ITX boards we've tested, perhaps the best.

ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 09 2014 | 3:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking with the ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 was relatively straightforward. I followed the usual method of disabling any power-saving options, locked in frequencies manually, and set about my way cranking up the speed. To make things move more quickly, after setting the basics in the BIOS, I fired up ASUS AI Suite to start iterating on my settings. After a few rounds through setting and testing I was sitting fat and happy at a very much thermally limited 4715 MHz at 1.43 volts. Any lower on the voltage would yield a failure on core #5 (which was the first one to fail in every single test) and any higher on either the voltage or clocks pushed the CPU into thermal throttling after a few minutes of Prime95. The final settings ended up being 200x23.5, 1.43 volts vcore, and 1.225 volts to the memory controller. All of my testing was done with the H100i cranked up to the unbearable maximum of its two 120mm screamers, but there just wasn`t any more headroom to keep it cool under load; the 8350 is not a cool chip when cranked this high. The last 15 MHz came from the board slightly overclocking the FSB even though I locked it in at 200 MHz."

Gigabyte Brix GB-BXI7 review: Mini-powerhouse with i7
     Thu, Jan 02 2014 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte has made excellent motherboards and graphics cards for many years, but more recently the company has begun making mini-PCs. You can buy them with affordable, entry-level hardware such as Celeron processors, or with a much more powerful Haswell Core i7 like the one we tested.

ECS GANK MACHINE Z87H3-A2X EXTREME (Intel LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 8:59A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like a mad rush of level 60 rogues, the ECS GANK MACHINE launches its assault on the Intel Haswell platform in a way no other would even attempt, going straight for the kill. Built with gaming in mind, and a bit of overclocking, too, the ECS GANK MACHINE not only surprised me, but left me feeling helpless, and under-skilled."

EVGA Z87 Stinger is EVGA's Z87-based answer
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"EVGA is no stranger to design mITX form factor boards, taking all the design wins for its previous generation Stinger and integrating them into its Z87 Stinger design. EVGA was able to design the Z87 Stinger with sufficient space around all components and on-board ports so that the board did not fell cramped without leaving off necessary features by using space on both sides of the board for power circuit placement. Other decisions like the vertical orientation of the CMOS battery and the use of well-designed heat sinks helped to minimize the space taken by these normally space-hogging parts."
