    MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC mITX Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   February 03, 2016

    The Z170I GAMING PRO AC motherboard is poised to be a tiny powerhouse for SFF builds or for those of you looking to focus on "less is more." If you are looking to make the jump to an Small Form Factor build, or you want to update an existing build you won’t want to miss this feature rich Mini-ITX motherboard.

    GIGABYTE Z170X-UD5 LGA 1151 Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   January 20, 2016

    GIGABYTE’s mid-range Z170X-UD5 has some impressive specifications, a lengthy feature set, and comes in with a sub-$200 street price. This motherboard has all the ingredients for a spectacular enthusiast option on paper. But how does it do in the real world when you put it to the test? It actually does very well.

    MSI Z170A SLI Plus LGA 1151 Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   January 06, 2016

    Sometimes less is more. That’s the approach MSI has taken with the MSI Z170A SLI Plus. Sure, ridiculously overpriced and feature packed motherboards are nice to drool but sometimes you want just the right tool for the job. The MSI Z170A SLI Plus is poised to be everything you need and nothing you don’t.

    ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme Z170 Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   December 15, 2015

    In the past ASUS’ Maximus motherboards represented the finest motherboards you could buy within their respective form factors. The Maximus VIII Impact wasn’t perfect but it managed to achieve the same level of greatness as its predecessors. Can the Maximus VIII Extreme do the same? Read on and find out.

    ASUS Maximus VIII Impact LGA 1151 Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   December 02, 2015

    Let’s face it, most sequels are never as good as the original films. When it comes to motherboards the opposite usually rings true. ASUS’ Republic of Gamers brand has had several iterations of the mini-ITX Maximus Impact, today we have version VIII. Hopefully ASUS continues its track record of great sequels.

    ASUS Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 LGA 1151 Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   November 09, 2015

    In our opinion ASUS’ TUF series motherboards target the sweet spot in regard to features, price, and performance. TUF motherboards give you more features than most mid-range motherboards but lack certain features found on the high end. The Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 is the flagship part of the current TUF series.

    MSI Z170A Gaming M7 LGA 1151 Motherboard Review

    By Daniel Dobrowolski   November 05, 2015

    MSI has changed gears as of late vowing to be the number one motherboard manufacturer in the "gaming" segment. While a "gaming" motherboard MSI is still focused on overclocking with this model. We look at the Z170A Gaming M7 to see if it brings MSI one step closer or a step away from that very goal.
