ASUS X79 Sabretooth

ASUS X79 Sabretooth @ MadShrimps

“The ASUS Sabretooth lineup always has been part of a little controversy. Some had no idea why the TUF series ever had to be made. Claiming high Durability and Reliability. So the other ASUS boards were inferior then in build quality ? Wouldn’t they survive the torture test that the Sabretooth series do ? I’ve had the Sandybridge P67 version for internal testing and must say that it was a joy to work with.”

Mini-ITX Socket FM1 Roundup

“They are all designed in the same form-factor and support Socket FM1 CPUs. All mainboard makers decided to go with the same exact core logic set – AMD A75. Since it is one of best feature-rich i/o hubs, all miniature AMD Llano mainboards support current interfaces and therefore look very attractive, probably just as good as the LGA 1155 mainboards of the same size.”

You can’t ask for much more than that. With an all-black PCB and connectors this board is sure to be used in a large variety of builds.”

Onboard reset, power switch and Clear CMOS are right next to it. Similarly, a debug LED display and numerous dip-switches for extreme OC attempts.”


BIOSTAR TPower X79 @ Legit Reviews

“As I just mentioned the BIOSTAR TPower X79 is the lowest cost motherboard that we have looked at for the Intel X79 chipset. We were comparing the BIOSTAR TPower X79 to boards like the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 and the ASRock X79 Extreme9 that we looked at last week.”

ECS A990FXM-A Black Series @ PureOC

“Today, we have EliteGroup’s new 990 chipset motherboard called the A990FXM-A Black Edition. EliteGroup has quietly emerged as a full line motherboard company in both AMD and Intel platforms. They may be the quiet guy on the block and may not be the best known, so let’s get ready to rumble and see what the ECS A990FXM-A Black Extreme has under the hood.”
