Asus Maximus IX Extreme Review

Asus Maximus Ix Extreme Review

We’re usually fond of Asus’ flagship motherboards, but while they’re usually dripping with features to make any enthusiast drool, very few people can afford them. Imagine, then, that both of those factors were multiplied several times over and combined in a wallet-crushing feature-fest of a motherboard. That’s essentially what Asus has done with the Maximus … Read more

Hints at an integrated GPU future It’s hard to ignore the rivalries that exist in computing. Dogmatic factions stand resolute against logic, faithfully defending their torchlit companies online. Flailing argument after argument attempts in vain to derail some well-conceived post. It’s an age-old fight. Red versus blue. Intel versus AMD, Microsoft versus Apple. And no … Read more

MSI A88XM-E45 Review

Msi Computer Micro Atx Ddr3 1333 Motherboards A88xm E45 V2

I had mixed experiences with the MSI A88XM-E45. It’s a good looking Micro-ATX design that uses a classic MSI color scheme of blue and black with a chunky heat-sink on the power regulation hardware that is screwed in place. The smaller heat-sink on the chip-set is secured with a pair of plastic pop pins. There … Read more
