ECS P45T-A Black Edition

ECS P45T-A Black Edition @ TBreak

“ECS’ Black Edition motherboards give a reasonably high end motherboard factor with a price that is extremely affordable. Its certainly a step-up from their usual low-priced motherboards and today we look at their recently launched Intel P45 chipset solution modeled as the P45T-A Black Edition.”

“The BIOS might not offer the most exhaustive set of tweaking options, but you do get more than you might expect. Couple the overclocking potential with onboard reset and power buttons, as well as other desirable features for desktop and HTPC usage, and the GF8200A definitely has an appeal that can cover a wide array of users.”

MSI P45 Neo3

“MSI’s P45 Neo3 is a good value motherboard if you’re looking to go green. It’s not suited to high-end gamers though, due to its lack of nVidia SLI support, and there’s no WLAN or Bluetooth chipsets. Some may also need a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) controller. There isn’t an onboard speaker for diagnostics, either.”


ASUS M3N78 PRO @ Bjorn3D

“The rationale behind NVIDIA’s decision is that while we need a super powerful graphics card in games, the computer system is actually not going to need all that graphical power while it is running desktop applications. In many cases, enthusiasts are using computers for web browsing, working, and running non-graphically intensive applications.”


ASUS P5N-D @ X-Bit Labs

“Today we are going to talk about an LGA 775 mainboard from ASUS based on Nvidia nForce 750i SLI chipset. We will not only checkout the board and its features but will also discuss the EPU technology and perform extensive power consumption tests.”

“We will discuss another mainboard on Nvidia nForce 750i SLI chipset. During our first look type of tests we wrongly assumed it could not do well during overclocking. We are going to check out its real potential today and see how good it is.”

“For the hardware enthusiast that wants to overclock their Intel CPU there are other boards on the market using the same chipset that do the job very well. Intel dominates the CPU and motherboard market with their Core 2 series of CPUs and their various motherboard chipsets.”

“For the budget-minded consumer, the ECS GF8200A is a pretty good deal. For $70 USD, the board has the features to build a good gaming PC or a HTPC with the integrated graphics with the caveat that there is no digital audio output and DVI port. The benefit of having DirectX 10 integrated graphics include: PureVideo HD playback of Blu-Ray discs and the ability to use the Aero UI in Windows Vista.”

XFX & Zotac nForce 790i 3-Way SLI

“We decided it would be logical to merge reviews of XFX nForce 790i Ultra 3-Way SLI and Zotac nForce 790i-Supreme into one article, because both products are, in fact, reference boards that were ordered by NVIDIA from its manufacturer. Thus, if you are going to buy something similar from another company (e.g. EVGA), this article will also be useful.”

“Today I will be looking at ASUS’ workstation motherboard based on the X38 chipset, the P5E64WS Professional. It is similar to the earlier board in that it has the capability for a quad of graphics cards, DDR3 system memory, and other features that will satisfy the enthusiast as well as the engineer. This one has even more features for the enthusiast, and a much more serious heatpipe cooling system.”
