Gigabyte has three very distinct motherboard lines in their X99 lineup and offer quite a lot of motherboards compared to most brands. They have their G1 Gaming Series, Overclocking Series, and Ultra Durable series. While the specific motherboards in each category are targeted at a certain type of user, many of their features cross into each category. For example the G1 Gaming series motherboards overclock quite well. Since the X99 chipset has been out for a little while now we are seeing a second wave of motherboards from manufacturers. The X99-Gaming 5P from Gigabyte is one such motherboard and is the replacement for the soon to be retired X99-Gaming 5. Gigabyte has actually added new features to this motherboard to make it even better. Let’s jump in!
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce EK-Supremacy EVO X99 water block, optimized for use on Intel socket LGA-2011-3 series processors.
Gigabyte has announced a new LGA2011v3 motherboard in the X99-SLI. This board is almost identical to the X99-UD4, which we recently reviewed. It is not a re-brand though because the PCB is actually different between the two. I assume Gigabyte is releasing this motherboard to make the most out of the pre-Summer sales season.
When it comes to X99 motherboards we have taken a look at boards from ASUS, MSI, ASRock and EVGA. The company not on that list is Gigabyte and today we are getting our first look at one of their X99 motherboards. The X99-UD4 is set to be a more affordable motherboard in their X99 stack and is not really aimed towards gamers or overclockers, but offers a great set of features any user will appreciate. The board is part of the companies Ultra Durable line and features an all digital power design, 4-way graphics support, dual M.2 slot, SATA Express support, Intel Gigabit LAN, and the companies AMP-UP audio solution. Did I mention the board lights up too? Let’s get the board on the test bench and see if Gigabyte has a winner on their hands.
ASRock has just announced a new LGA2011v3 motherboard in their X99M-Killer USB 3.1. This motherboard is designed to work with Intel’s Core i7 Haswell-E processors and features the X99 Express chipset. As you could guess by the name this is a micro-ATX motherboard. The board draws power from a 24pin ATX, 8pin EPS and optional 4pin Molex. The board has a 12-phase VRM for the CPU, which is wired to four DDR4 DIMM slots that support quad-channel memory.
ASUS has a pretty complete line of X99 motherboards. There are a total of 8 motherboards currently in their X99 lineup and they range from sub-$300 boards to the super high-end of almost $500! With so many different boards it might be confusing, but today we will be taking a look at ASUS’s most entry-level X99 motherboard. This motherboard will get you on to the X99 platform for under $300. The motherboard we are talking about is the X99-A and while it is ASUS’s entry-level X99 motherboard it has many great features you just won’t find on other motherboards out there. The board features ASUS’s patent pending OC socket, ASUS’s Dual Intelligent Processors 5, ASUS’s Crystal Sound 2 audio solution, a 32Gb/s M.2 x4 slot, and much more. Will this be the motherboard for your X99 build? Read on as we find out!
ASUS already has a great lineup of X99 motherboards, but we were wondering if we would see an X99-based TUF (The Ultimate Force) motherboard come out. Well it looks like the waiting is over as the company has unveiled the TUF Sabertooth X99 at CeBIT this week!
It look like ASRock really wants to you build an awesome mini-ITX system as they have revealed the world’s first mini-ITX socket LGA2011v3 motherboard! Yes that means you can pop in an eight-core Intel Core i7-5960X processor and DDR4 memory into a mini-ITX build! The new board is the X99E-ITX/ac and is a standard mini-ITX motherboard with a good amount of its PCB taken up by the large LGA2011v3 socket.
