Simple Secure Erase and MPCIe Added To Asus Maximus VI Motherboard Family
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 6:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although its really no surprise that ASUS has included a MPCIe/802.11ac Combo with their latest Maximus VI offerings, the fact that this M.2 adapter is only limited to a single PCIe lane is a bit disheartening. Not that it really matters to the typical consumer, as they probably wont be able to get their hands on a compatible card for a few motherboard revisions at least, but limiting it to a single lane means 5Mbps throughput, or 500MB/s transfer speeds which is less than we are seeing in todays SATA 3 SSDs."

ASRock Z87 OC Formula Review @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 6:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 OC Formula is ASRock`s new high-end motherboard regarding overclocking. Additionally there is a beefed up audio solution with a decent headphone amp, which makes this board more appealing to gamers too. There is even the possibility to integrate the chipset into a watercooling loop, which is certainly great for modding. Overall, it looks like ASRock is trying to kill several birds with one stone. Are they going to succeed?"

ECS L337 GANK Machine Z87H3-A2X Extreme Review
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second BIOS I used fixed the override voltage setting problem and allowed my to finally tune the voltage to get to the 4.7GHz clock speed my chip is capable of. Setting the memory timings manually would result in a failed post attempt across both of the BIOS I have tested so far. Using the XMP profile for my memory proved to be the best option for me with this board from ECS. Although it sounds bad out of the gate, it`s still a good start for the board and the next BIOS update should iron out any other issues. When using the BIOS it is a step forward from last year`s UEFI BIOS implementations with the interface working as intended."

MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX (Intel LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 8:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has won me over recently with their new dragon-themed GAMING SERIES products for Intel`s Z87 platform, but that`s not all they have been working on. The MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX, with yellow to match MSI`s own Lightning VGAs, makes some big claims, but does it break limits, or is it a MAX failure?"

The 20 most bizarre and innovative motherboards: 1999 – 2010
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since we started Hardware.Info back in 1998, we've probably tested almost 1,000 motherboards. Usually it's not the most exciting piece of hardware, but through the years we've seen some pretty interesting and creative attempts at innovation. In a bout of nostalgia, we took a look back at the most interesting and the most eyebrow-raising motherboards that came across our desks through the years. The desire for innovation is a breeding ground for some some strange and interesting ideas, that's for sure. Some designs pushed the boundaries with innovations that inspired the competition and changed motherboards forever, others should probably have stayed on the drawing board. We picked out 20 that deserve a special mention, motherboards that came out between the years 1999 and 2010. Do you remember the ABIT BP6, AOpen AX3SP Pro Che Che or Gigabyte GA-G1975X?

ASUS Z87-Deluxe Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87-Deluxe from ASUS belongs to the best equipped Z87 motherboards available. Therefore it`s almost obvious, that there are plenty of features as well as a high quality power design. Like discussed before the actual Haswell launch, ASUS switched the color scheme with their latest classic series motherboards from black/blue to black/gold/yellow, which really was a brave move."

ASUS Maximus VI Hero Z87 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Aug 28 2013 | 7:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 series keeps on trucking along and with this ASUS offers yet another ROG piece to the game with the newly released Maximus VI HERO. The Hero looks very much like a Formula from the Z77 line but without the WiFi or the Liquid cooled VRM and knowing now all of the different models available through the ROG line I am very interested in the innovations included in this board and where exactly it falls into the stack in terms of ROG Z87s."

Intel DZ87KLT-75K LGA1150 Desktop Motherboard Review
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until a few years ago, Intel motherboards were, well, boring: reliable, sure, and well-made, but without any really interesting features that would appeal to enthusiasts. That started changing around the time of the Z68 chipset, and although Intel has announced they?ll stop manufacturing desktop motherboards in the near future, the Z87-based DZ78KLT-75K makes a good swan song."
