Pardon the Construction…

As you can see, we’re currently in the process of moving the legacy site content over to the new platform. We’ll be focusing on getting the motherboard review database filled back up first, then moving on to the other areas. You may notice some items popping up or changing over the coming days/weeks as this effort is under way.

*Update* — As of 9/24, we’re back up to ~1,225 reviews loaded back into the database. Simply select the chipset or OEM from the menus above, or use the search tool. More to come!

I hope you enjoy the updated site. Speed, information, no ads.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 – Launch Day Reviews

Last week NVIDIA officially launched their RTX 30 series starting with the GeForce RTX 3080. It provided great performance at a great price and really made gaming at 4K enjoyable. Now a week later we have the GeForce RTX 3090. The naming of the card might make you think it sits higher in the product stack (and it does), but it really sits in a category all its own.

COLORFUL CVN Z490 GAMING PRO V20

In this review, we will review one of the new Colorful panels, which is the Colorful CVN Z490 Gaming Pro, which comes at a price of $ 180. Simply the board is in a medium price range for the Z490 chipset, and it is the only chip that provides overclocking support with K processors and overclocking memory as well, so it is one of your options if you are going overclocking for sure.

ASUS PRIME Z490-A

The recommended $ 230 is more, and decent, than the average “ward temperature” of the Z490 motherboard market. And this is immediately a strong ideological blow to Prime. Yes, there are still little things to throw, finishing up to $ 240, and there are several ASUS ROG models at once, not to mention powerful offers in the assortment of MSI, Gigabyte and ASRock, and more exotic motherboard manufacturers.

GIGABYTE Z490 AORUS MASTER

In this review I’ll be going over the Z490 Aorus Master motherboard for the latest generation of Comet Lake processors.  For those who do not know, Aorus is the gaming brand under Gigabyte that combines features from many of the previous product lines together to create a super motherboard for the aspiring gamer, weekend overclocker and system builder looking for a universal platform to handle it all.

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity

It won’t beat the Founders Edition out of the box, and with its very, very small overclock you will get pretty close to the RTX 3080 FE performance. But, the ZOTAC custom GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity runs 8C cooler at stock settings (72C versus 79C) and has a triple-fan setup that won’t blow hot air up into your CPU (like the RTX 3080 FE does, if you didn’t want that).
