“What do we know ASRock mainboards for in the first place? Unique technical solutions and low price. What will we remember ASRock X58 SuperComputer for? Well, I believe it will be the unusual “Powered eSATAII/USB” connector and that’s about it. In my opinion, they had to give up four PCI Express x16 slots and leave only two of them, because most users will still use only one anyway. Making the layout a little simpler this way could help lower the price of this board.”

“Everybody knows that if you’re number 2, you try harder, What if you’re number 3 or 4, what do you do then? You look for Golden Opportunities to prove that you have first class products. ASRock did just that during the rise of the Core2Duo era, when overclocking nearly became a household word. ASRock built a stellar reputation with LGA775 motherboards that survived (and thrived) at the high Front Side Bus clock speeds that were required to get those Intel CPUs singing soprano.”

“As the other motherboard, this VIA one has also a clean design. If we look briefly, we can see that this motherboard uses normal DIMMs, the chipset and the CPU are covered by aluminum passive heatsinks, but the CPU also has an active fan on it. We have a spare PCI slot for plugging in a TV tuner, a soundcard or a video card. We can also see 2 spare SATA ports, a IDE connector and the 20-pin PSU connector.”

“But both the 920 and P6T put on a little show and came up big. The maximum baseclock I could achieve with stability was 222MHz. But this was pretty much bench stable. 220 was stable enough to be prime stable at 220×18, or 3.96 GHz, pretty sweet so far. To get there I needed just 1.38 volts on the CPU, a QPI voltage of 1.39v, IOH of 1.36v, CPU PLL voltage of 1.86 with the memory at 1.62 volts.”

“Back in January while attending CES, I took the opportunity to visit GIGABYTE’s demo suite and meet the new team. This was one of the better highlights of attending simply because they’ve made some great strides over the last two years becoming the fastest growing motherboard manufacturer among the enthusiasts. This is largely in part to their commitment to the enthusiast community.”

“It seems like eVGA wasn’t too affected by nVidia’s abandonment of chipset design for Intel’s latest processors. Their X58 3X SLI is exactly what we have come to expect from an eVGA product. It works perfectly out of the box, comes with a decent bundle, looks great and, more importantly, it overclocks well. Performance is right on par with what we have seen from other X58 boards as of yet.”

“I must say I am very impressed with this motherboard. It ran very stable at stock speeds and overclocked, even though the overclock was not that high. I like how Sapphire took the time in the designing of the board’s features, although there were a couple of design flaws I noticed during the testing.”

Asus P6T6 WS Revolution

“As most of you know, motherboard manufacturers have the ability to enable various 3-way SLI combinations through the use of NVIDIA’s NF200 PCI Express fanout switch chip. The Asus P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard is one such product and we’ve got a full evaluation of it on tap at HotHardware today.”

“This board in a word excites me to no end. The ability to have four video cards without SATA or capacitors or other components in the way is a huge plus for me. The ability to use either ECC or non-ECC DDR3 memory is a huge plus and puts this board squarely into the server category as the board supports the new Intel Xeon 3500 Series CPUs.”

“Today we take a look at a new socket 1366 motherboard from Asus. This new board seems to be the new Core i7 badboy from Asus, it is available in different versions that come in different prices. This seems to aim itself vs overclockers mainly and it also has a quite high pricetag of 270$. Lets see how this board will perform and we will also try to boost our Core i7 a bit to see what features this board can offer.”
