Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After speaking to Gigabyte recently about the upcoming boards for Haswell and Z87, they kept telling me that the UD4H was a big focus for them, and I can see why, as it incorporates a brand new colour scheme that has never been tried by them before, and as you can see; it's red and it's sexy. The UD4H is a mid-range board that incorporates a lot of key features that you'd expect including SLI/CrossFire, strong power delivery to the CPU socket and much more, but what is a board with strong features, if it doesn't look the part? This is a question that Gigabyte asked themselves and decided to go with a radical new design and while a lot of consumers will be quick to judge that they've copied the Asus ROG or MSI Gaming series boards, we can say from first-hand, it looks nothing like them and is actually quite subtle, in a "slap you round the face" kind of way, and that's a good thing, as it allows the board to appeal to many different markets. For those wanting a mid-range board with strong features and great potential, we think that the UD4H could be a real contender, and there is only one way to find out, so follow us as we delve into this review. As usual, we will be taking a look at the box and any added accessories that come bundled with the UD4H before we take a look at the board and its funky new style from a close-up view. Once this is out of the way, we can focus directly on the performance of the board with our Haswell i7 4770k at the heart of it, and of course we will be seeing how far we can push the system by overclocking, and then testing at those speeds too, so lets get straight into it, shall we?

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years we've seen more and more products aimed at gamers and Gigabyte have harnessed this very well, as they cater for gamers in more ways than one. This stems from their VGA range, to their peripherals, gaming notebooks and of course gaming related motherboards. Their motherboards aimed at gamers have for the past few years been branded under the G1-Killer series and have to say the least been very successful. I have to be honest as well, due to me having a bit of a soft spot for the complete range due to its amazing colour scheme and key gaming features, which generally includes improved audio, multi-GPU support and improved networking capabilities. With the launch of the Z87 chipset and Haswell 4th generation processors, we find some new models being added to this range, which leads us to the G1.Sniper 5 board that we have with us today, but does it offer up anything new with thanks to the new Z87 chipset? That's what we are here to find out today, and with a huge box presenting the board, we can only assume that it comes with a mammoth amount of accessories.

MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Jun 17 2013 | 3:52A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It goes without saying, the Z77-GD65 was a firm favourite here at Vortez. We have used it as the basis for one of our test rigs and have used it in our own personal workstations and so today we are filled with anticipation as to what Z87-GD65 Gaming will bring to the table. Z87-GD65 Gaming continues with the new gaming series styling and brings a whole host of interesting features to LGA1150, such as Military Class 4, Killer E2200 audio, OC Genie 4 and much more.

MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming Review
     Sun, Jun 16 2013 | 3:52A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stock performance was impressive across the board when compared to the Intel solution in just about every single test, showing how well the clock speeds are dynamically managed to deliver higher performance metrics. Overclocking is a way to further drive improved performance and the Z87-GD65 is no slouch in this department, able to easily take my Core i7 4770K up to its limits with no problems. As far as the memory/clock speed ratio is concerned, MSI has the board tuning down to allow the end user the ability to get the most out of the installed memory and processor. OC results of 4.7GHz on the CPU cores running the system memory at 2600MHz illustrates that yes, your parts stand a chance at getting to the top of the Gaming charts. If tuning manually is not your style you can always use OC Genie 4 with multiple profiles to step up the performance a bit."
