ASUS X79 Deluxe Motherboard Review “Ground Up Redesign For Ivy-E”

feature

Introduction – ASUS X79 Deluxe We recently looked at the X79 refresh from the ROG line newly optimized for top tier performance with the new Ivy-E chips and well not everyone needs that level of extreme feature set and compatibility so ASUS stepped it down a notch in some of the more extreme LN2 and overclock areas to offer a more sensible board for enthusiasts users and arrives at our test bench today with the new X79 Deluxe. One thing to note is that while this is not an ROG board and may not have all of the LN2 bells and whistles straight on paper as you will see coming up this board is still very much packed to the gills with some pretty awesome features. One thing you will notice right off the bat is that ASUS basically now EOL the P9X79 Deluxe board in favor of ushering in ... Read More »

The Black is Back! ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Motherboard Review

feature

Introduction – ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Echoes of AC/DC ring in my head as I came up with this title, and it took everything in me not to have about a thousand different “Back in black” references but I think we can survive a few. ASUS seems to reserve its “Black Edition” moniker for very special models as im sure some of you saw back when we got a chance to check out the Rampage III Black edition board based on the X58 chipset. That thing was a flat out beast and from looking at the specs on paper the Rampage IV Black edition is no different. Well we can say that in a manner of speaking as it looks to be a flat out beast but it is in terms entirely different as the technology on this board is seemingly light years ahead of the previous generation Black ...

Dynatron R17 – LGA2011 3U+ Server or Workstation CPU Air Cooler

Feature R17

  Closer Look When we first took on the Dynatron coolers honestly one of the most excited I was to work with was this one and that’s because I feel a bit more at home working on a tower cooler like this as the small flat coolers you get with servers just do not seem right after working as an enthusiast for so long. The small coolers have their place and they are usually in noisy large thin blade servers but big towers like this are more akin to what you see in a desktop rig and well this one happens to be spec’d as a 3U Server or desktop workstation so its a bit more up my alley when in terms of testing and familiarity. Dynatron is one of those companies that has been around for coming up on 20 years now as it started in 1991 and has ... Read More »

Ivy Bridge-E is here! Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition Processor Review

Feature

Intel’s New Ivy Bridge-E Has Landed! Normally when Intel launches a new CPU it is brought along with a new chipset even if its the same socket. If you remember the launch a short while ago moving from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge, it utilized the same 1155 socket but launched a new chipset Z77 along with the new CPU to support some new features even though it used the same socket. Today we are looking at the new Ivy Bridge-E CPU which is based on the LGA 2011 Socket type and with it we did not receive a board or any of that normal stuff we would get with an Intel launch. That is not a huge deal as we always found the Intel boards rather basic honestly but they did provide very good baseline and even OC based performance for which we could use to test all future ...

Today’s market of RAM is pretty saturated, as we all know. This means that RAM manufacturers have to get creative to make their kits stand out.

This is also their “Intel Extreme Masters” kit which one can assume goes through rigorous QA for the best compatibility and stability. No related posts. Read More »
