ASUS Rampage III Black Edition

ASUS Rampage III Black Edition @ Neoseeker

“Along with all the impressive features, the Black Edition motherboard has what really counts, excellent performance. During our testing the ASUS board was able to compete with our highest performing X58 based motherboards. While the difference between the other boards wasn’t huge, it was still better.”


ECS A990FXM-A @ Guru3D

“The ECS Black Extreme A990FXM-A comes with 140W AM3+ Processor support and harbors AMD CrossfireX and NVIDIA SLI technology compatibility. You’ll spot 3 PCIe x16 slots, dual gigabit jack, it has 7.1 channel High Definition audio, USB 3.0 and well… just a lot more. We’ll have a look at the motherboard performance, based on Phenom II processors.”



” Today we look at GIGABYTE’s more recent iteration of the Z68 chipset: the GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD5. This board was built to a more industrial standard and the quality shows. For those of you who want the most out of your Intel i5 K- series, for $270 this is a serious contender for the competition.”


ASUS P8H67-I @ TweakTown

“The format has really blown up lately, though, and we’re seeing more and more companies offer mITX boards based on chipsets that indeed offer the chance to give us some real performance. Today we’re looking at the ASUS P8H67-I which as you can possibly tell from the name, is based on the H67 chipset.”

Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H

Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H @ X-Bit Labs

“Gigabyte got to the point where the final price of a product like that reached as much as $123. In other words, its price is in the range of the top Socket FM1 processor – A8-3850 ($135). So, it turns out that Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H is an expensive mainboard for inexpensive systems. So, why will be the target user group in this case?”

Intel Z68DB

Intel Z68DB @

“Based around the new Z68 Express Chipset, the DZ68DB is a very flexible motherboard that can be integrated into many different types of systems, due to its robust feature set and price point. The DZ68DB has the ability to be used as an HTPC all-in-one solution for both general PC users and media enthusiasts, by utilizing the onboard graphics capabilities of the 2nd generation Intel Core i3 through i7 CPUs.”


GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD @ Legit Reviews

“What truly blew my mind was the price. As I said above, I thought the GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD was going to cost a pretty penny, somewhere in the $350-$400. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the Z68XP-UD7-iSSD retails for only $239.99! Needless to say I was a bit shocked!”


MSI Z68A-GD65 @ TechPowerUp

“Our first look at PCIe 3.0 comes from none other than MSI, with their recently launched Z68A-GD65 (G3). Adding support early for future Intel CPUs, the Z68A-GD65 (G3), with its true PCIe 3.0 support, not only offers a bit for the future, but also a bit of extra speed, right now. We take the overclocking-oriented Z68A-GD65 (G3) for a spin.”



“ASUS, a full line motherboard manufacturer, has been busy with both AMD socket AM 3+ and now socket FM1 motherboards. Let’s dive in a see what the F1A75-M PRO brings to the table with these new APU’s from AMD coupled with groundbreaking on die graphics processor 6550D.”


GIGABYTE G1.Sniper2 @ TweakTown

“In retrospect, the decision to skip the P67 ended up probably being the better idea, but I was none the less disappointed at launch because it looked like a strong feature packed board. In the end, though, it doesn’t matter now. The G1 series has finally graced the LGA 1155 platform in the form of the G1.Sniper2; a name I’m a little iffy about. It makes sense, but I would’ve loved to have seen it called the G1.SniperZ to represent the fact that it’s based on the Z68 chipset.”
