ASUS F2A55-M LK @ eTeknix

“Normally you see us taking a look at the higher-end scale of products with enthusiast, gaming and overclocking based products, but we do have a passion when it comes to value for money, and that’s what Asus pledge to give you with the F2A55-M LK, so lets see if its any good.”

“Today we are taking a look at probably the most feature packed X79 motherboard we have seen and that is available today.  It is the X79 Extreme11 from ASRock and it features 7 PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, 14 SATA ports, 8 USB 3.0 ports and much, much more.”

To look at this even closer to home ASUS builds its boards to deliver the same overclocking experience in its Z77-based product stack from the lower end all the way up to the ROG Maximus V Extreme. Where the differences occur is in the feature set each board is equipped with so that just about every price point from the bottom to the top is covered.”

“Now when it came to overclocking, the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WiFi will allow your processor and memory to scale almost effortlessly when manually tweaking the settings. Up to the limits of your hardware at least. I was able to pull a 1.2GHz overclock out of the CPU and run the 2133MHz rated memory at up to 2400MHz by adjusting the timings and tweaking the voltages a bit for stability.”

“ECS is going all bling once again, the A85F2-A GOLDEN could even be a little overkill for the price point of view and the sheer segment the AMD APUs operatie in (entry-level to mainstream). The motherboard is pretty high end really themed in gold. Gold happens is a great conductor of heat and electricity.”

ASRock Z77 OC Formula

ASRock Z77 OC Formula @ Neoseeker

“With support for both the second and third generation Intel core i7, i5 and i3 processors, we should see some impressive overclocks with the Z77 OC Formula, possibly record-even if aggressive memory overclocks (up to 3000MHz+) can also be achieved.”

Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4

“Got a shiny new FM2 APU, and want to clock the snot out of it? Looking to add a couple of RAID controllers to house a storage monster? Gigabyte’s got the F2A85X-UP4 for you! Built with enthusiasts in mind, the F2A85X-UP4 comes with a lot of overclocking features.”

ECS A85F2-A Golden Board

“While top top part of the chassis could have been cut from slightly thicker metal in my opinion, as it does flex a little more than it should, but once everything is installed and its by your desk its no longer an issue. Other than that build quality is excellent. There were no squeaks, rattles and no bits falling off that shouldn’t. So a bit win for Aerocool on both style and build quality.”

ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX

ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX @ PC Perspective

“We decided to put this board through the paces, throwing our normal suite of benchmark and functionality tests to see how well it lived up to its reputation. The ECS Z77H2-AX seems to be well priced at its $309.99 base price with all the higher-end features and bling built into the board.”


ASUS F2A85-V PRO @ Bjorn3D

“The new F2A85V Pro is built with the third generation Dual Intelligent Processors (TPM and EPU) that delivers power efficiency and control over the APU, VRAM, and DRAM. The new DIGI+ has been updated to work better with ASUS AI Suite II where it provided a simple one-click solution in Windows for optimizing system performance.”
