DFI LANPARTY Blood Iron G41-T33

DFI LANPARTY Blood Iron G41-T33 @ PCShopTalk

“In this review I will test a micro-ATX board from DFI, named Lanparty Blood Iron G41-T33, which uses DDR3 memory for the LGA775 platform; I will check it out compared to the other boards I have tested in the past with various applications and will also test its ability to overclock.”

“The new Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard is build with the AMD 770 chipset and the SB710 southbridge and it is the first AMD DDR3 board on ocinside.de It is in the lower price segment, but it has awesome settings and a nice overclocking result. The review will show how high the performance and the overclocking result of the Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P is in comparison to the previous Socket AM3 DDR2 board.”

“Motherboards with inexpensive discrete chipsets remain popular, but rarely make it to reviews because of poor functionality. But sometimes such motherboards get proprietary technologies, in which case it would be strange not to review them. Today we shall examine one of such motherboards based on the AMD 770 chipset.”


ASUS AT3N7A-1 @ HardwareZone

“NVIDIA’s Ion continues to thrive thanks to HTPC enthusiasts who value the onboard GeForce 9400M’s performance. ASUS wants a piece of the action too and this is the ASUS AT3N7A-1, touted as a value for money option for movie lovers who want to set up a simple and inexpensive HTPC. We check it out to see if it’s time to bust out the popcorn yet.”

Gigabyte P55-UD5 Preview

“With Intel’s Lynnfield launch right around the corner, let’s kick off our coverage with a look at one of Gigabyte’s launch P55 boards, the P55-UD5. A mainstream model, the UD5 features enough connectivity to totally fill up your chassis with components, a smart design and for what could be considered a relative rarity… a cool color scheme.”

Gigabyte GA-EX58-Extreme

Gigabyte GA-EX58-Extreme @ Bjorn3D

“Core i7 is currently the most expensive platform one can purchase and along it is expensive motherboard that ranges from $150 to insanely $570. It raises some interesting question’s that just how much more ‘performance’ would these more expensive boards offer. Does it makes sense to buy the more expensive board while the more budget or mainstream board that can offer similar performance.”

ASUS ROG Maximus III Formula Preview

“The heasink over the PCH is massive and dominates the real estate on the bottom side of the ROG Maximus III Formula. The VRM heatsinks look small by comparison to what is used on some of the current X58 and older hardware. This may well be ASUS’s Extreme Design concept in action. More equal loading of the power phases reduces hot spots by spreading the load so a smaller heatsink may well do the job. The heatsink in the middle lights up when the board is powered up.”

Triple Mainstream AMD 785G Roundup

Triple Mainstream AMD 785G Roundup @ HardwareZone

“The heir to the popular mainstream AMD 780G chipset, the 785G has arrived but it appears to have kept with the status quo. Can these three new motherboards from ASUS, ECS and Gigabyte convince us otherwise? We take these boards for a spin in our lab and paint the results for you.”

ASUS P7P55D Premium P55 Preview

“So, while ASUS has essentially doubled the speed available to the Marvell 9123 chip, they have done so at the cost of additional logic and traces on the board and without actually meeting the 600 MB/s theoretical speed maximum. Still, 500 MB/s is still much better than 250 MB/s and I think that users will be able to see a noticeable difference – once we actually get SATA 6G devices out and available.”


MSI X58M @ Neoseeker

“The X58M is a very capable motherboard out of MSI’s entry-level lineup: it packs a whole bunch of features into a small mATX form factor. And with the ability to install the usual six DDR3 modules in triple channel configuration, as well as two video cards in CrossFire or SLI, the X58M is on equal footing with some of the more expensive, higher-end X58 ATX boards we have reviewed.”
