ECS Black Series A990FXM-A

ECS Black Series A990FXM-A @ OC Club

“The ominous heatsink dominates the board, although one may notice that it also manages to have a clean and subdued style. On a related note, one might notice something a little ‘off’ with this board. At first it might be difficult to identify what exactly it is, and then you see it; this board appears to lack a northbridge!”


EVGA Z68 FTW @ Guru3D

“In conclusion we can say that the eVGA Z68 FTW is a really nice product priced competitively. We do think that eVGA should look a little more at overall aesthetics as hey, it matters alright. The hardware itself works out extremely well, it is a board that will satisfy any computer enthusiast or hardware entrepreneur.”

ECS HDC-I Fusion

ECS HDC-I Fusion @ PC Perspective

“ECS is taking complete advantage of the feature sets associated with the Brazos platform in the HDC-I and keeping this board at a price point that consumers can afford. These mini ITX boards provide great performance and low power consumption, which makes it a very tempting option for tweeners who don’t want to jump to a micro ATX or ATX setup.”

EVGA X79 Classified

EVGA X79 Classified @ Legit Reviews

“EVGA is one of the sponsors of GeForce LAN 6 and they just got done doing a presentation where they showed off one of the companies upcoming Intel X79 Express motherboards for the yet to be released Sandy Bridge-E CPU. We got a chance to check out the EVGA X79 Classified motherboard and took some pictures, so you could see it too!”


GIGABYTE Super4 A75-UD4H @ Legit Reviews

“GIGABYTE is known for having quality motherboards. Today we have the opportunity to pull one out of their AMD A75 product stack. The GIGABYTE A75-UD4H is the top offering in the GIGABYTE A75 product stack. First impressions tell us that the GIGABYTE A75-UD4H is packed with features and the quality we’ve come to expect from GIGABYTE. Are our first impressions spot on? Or are we way off base?”

Zotac Z68 ITX WiFi Supreme

Zotac Z68 ITX WiFi Supreme @ Bjorn3D

“There is also the model we are testing: the Z68 ITX Wifi Supreme, which carries a single PCI-E x4 slot and an integrated GT430 GPU along with SO-DIMM DDR3 slots and many more features which we will look into further in the following pages. One important thing to note is that the two Z68 ITX offerings meet two distinct purposes.”

Zotac A75-ITX WiFi

Zotac A75-ITX WiFi @ Techware Labs

“Overall, the Zotac A75-ITX WiFi was an excellent little motherboard. With its tiny form factor, built-in WiFi and bluetooth, and FM1 socket, it is obviously aiming square at the HTPC market and hitting its mark. But with its support of USB 3.0, SATA 6.0 Gb/s, and a discreet x16 graphics card, Zotac proves that features don’t have to be sacrificed to reach its HTPC goal.”

MSI Z68A-GD80 (G3)

MSI Z68A-GD80 (G3) @ X-Bit Labs

“At first glance this mainboard doesn’t seem to differ from the previously tested MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3) except for the new standard support. However, this is not quite the case. The mainboard only look similar. Their features and functionality, as well as operation turned out completely different. Some of the innovations proved to be really great, some turned out more of a disappointment.”


MSI 990FXA-GD80 @ TweakTown

“With our FX-8150 well and truly having done the rounds in launch coverage, it’s time to see what’s going on with some of the boards that we’ve been collecting here over the past few weeks prior to the launch of Bulldozer. We’ve got boards from ASRock, ASUS and GIGABYTE, but we’ll start off today by checking out the MSI offering – the 990FXA-GD80.”

MSI X79A-GD65 Preview

MSI X79A-GD65 Preview @ TweakTown

“So, in following our normal preview style, we’ll check out the MSI X79A-GD65 today and see what we’ve got to look forward to come November. Apparently I can’t be specific about a launch date, but let’s be honest, we all have a fairly good idea of when it’s due. So what’s our normal preview style? – Well, we’ll check out the box and the package of the board.”
