P5N-E SLI vs other High-Cost SLI’s (1/3)

April 16th, 2015 · Comments Off

This ASUS creation offers the very best performance for the LGA775 platform along with all the essential features. The P5N-E SLI costs just around $140, making it roughly $130 cheaper than the cheapest ASUS 680i SLI board (P5N32-E SLI), which were also used through the performance comparison tests. It boils down to one thing the P5N-E SLI really is an impressive motherboard

Tests were made using these specifications:

Hardware (This was the Hardware specifications of the test)

- Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66GHz) LGA775

- x2 1024MB Corsair XMS PC-6400 CAS4 Module(s)

- ASUS Striker Extreme (nForce 680i SLI)
- ASUS P5N32-E SLI (nForce 680i SLI)
- ASUS P5N-E SLI (nForce 650i SLI)
- Gigabyte 965P-DS3P (Intel 965P)

- OCZ GameXStream (700 watt)

- Seagate 250GB 7200RPM (Serial ATA II)

- ASUS GeForce 8800 GTX (768MB) SLI
- ASUS GeForce 8800 GTX (768MB) SLI

Peripheral Card Slots

April 9th, 2015 · Comments Off

A typical motherboard from 2007 will have a different number of connections depending on its standard. A standard ATX motherboard will typically have 1x PCI-E 16x connection for a graphics card, 2x PCI slots for various expansion cards and 1x PCI-E 1x which will eventually supersede PCI.

A standard Super ATX motherboard will have 1x PCI-E 16x connection for a graphics card. It will also have a varying number of PCI and PCI-E 1x slots. It can sometimes also have a PCI-E 4x slot. This varies between brands and models.

Some motherboards have 2x PCI-E 16x slots to allow more than 2 monitors without special hardware or to allow use of a special graphics technology called SLI (for Nvidia) and Crossfire (for ATI). These allow 2 graphics cards to be linked together to allow better performance in intensive graphical computing tasks such as gaming and video editing. -Source

What does ASUS P5N-E SLI lack? (3/3)

April 2nd, 2015 · Comments Off

In such a case the question will become: Can the PCI Express 8x offer enough bandwidth for PCIe 16x graphics cards perform at their peak?

The short answer is simply, yes the PCI Express can!

Truth is, having full 16x SLI support has no real performance benefits over an 8x SLI setup, so again this is something gamers are surely not going to miss out on.

A test was done involving the SLI GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards to the P5N-E SLI and compared it to the Striker Extreme and P5N32-E SLI (another more expensive 680i offering by ASUS) with the same hardware configuration. The results are very interesting as it somewhat equaled the more expensive board.

Essential Components to Consider in Selecting Motherboards

March 26th, 2015 · Comments Off

Choosing a motherboard PC in most cases would require a careful reference to Motherboard manual and other pertinent documents. There are a lot of motherboards available in the market, yet it is gleaned important that you very well know how to choose the right one. One of the most essential factors to look at is the type of processor it supports. There should also be enough memory slots that will be able to hold up the sound and graphic system, the support of the hard drives and CD ROM and lastly the connections among other hardware like mouse and keyboard.

Things you must do before changing your motherboard. (part II)

March 19th, 2015 · Comments Off

3. Find a large space for workspace. Changing a motherboard requires a lot of unscrewing the parts and so, you might want to consider doing it in a large open area. Although you might find it reasonable to open your CPU on a small table, it’s ok, as long as you can remember where you placed the screws (and as long as you won’t find it annoying to go to and fro the places where you’ve placed the parts).
4. Make the puzzle fit. Newer versions of motherboards use another kind of power supply and have a 24 pin slot for the connector. If your computer is relatively old, the cord for the power supply might only have 20 pins on it. Although it is possible to do this, it is somewhat risky since you will deliver insufficient electric supply to your motherboard.

Sandy Bridge mobos now being rolled out

March 12th, 2015 · No Comments

Intel’s new second generation core processors, which has a codename Sandy Bridge, is getting a lot of a attention from PC enthusiasts. The main reason is the ability of the CPU to turbo boost all four cores of the processor, not just one of it.

Anticipation is really getting stronger especially now that Sandy Bridge mini-ITX motherboards are beginning to be rolled out. I myself might get one of these mobos and give it a test spin. It will be interesting to see how much of a performance boost we will get with this new technology. With Diablo III on its way, this may be a great time to upgrade.

ゲーミング用マザーボード

マザーボードはパソコンシステムの心臓部を代表する。 他の構成要素を繋げ、全てがスムーズで確実に動作するようにしている。 ゲーミング・パソコンを組み立てる時、一番重要な作業は最高のゲーミング・マザーボードを選ぶ事である。 最初に、どのタイプのCPUを使うか決めなければならない。 そしてマザーボードは選んだCPUをサポートするか判断する。 もしCPUをオーバー・クロックするのであれば、FSBスピードの調整が出来るマザーボードを選ばなければならない。 現時点でDDR2が市場で最高の速度を誇るメモリーなので、そのマザーボードはDDR2メモリーをサポートしなければいけない。 次はSLI / クロスファイアーとなる。 クロスファイアー対応マザーボードとは、同一の高機能グラフィックカードを二つ使用し映像を描写するので、速く、よりリアルなビデオ効果を得ることが可能となる。 最高のゲーミング・マザーボードを購入する際、事前にインターネットや雑誌で広範な調査をする事はそれだけの値打ちがある。 全パソコンシステム上、一番重要な部位なので、マザーボードにかける予算はケチらない方が良い。

Components and Functions

February 26th, 2015 · Comments Off

The motherboard of a typical desktop consists of a large PCB. It holds electronic components and interconnects, as well as physical connectors (sockets, slots, and headers) into which other computer components may be inserted or attached.

Most motherboards include, at a minimum:

  1. sockets (or slots) in which one or more microprocessors (CPUs) are installed
  2. slots into which the system’s main memory is installed (typically in the form of DIMM modules containing DRAM chips)
  3. a chipset which forms an interface between the CPU’s front-side bus, main memory, and peripheral buses
  4. non-volatile memory chips (usually Flash ROM in modern motherboards) containing the system’s firmware or BIOS
  5. a clock generator which produces the system clock signal to synchronize the various components
  6. slots for expansion cards (these interface to the system via the buses supported by the chipset)
  7. power connectors and circuits, which receive electrical power from the computer power supply and distribute it to the CPU, chipset, main memory, and expansion cards.

Choosing the Best Chipsets

February 19th, 2015 · Comments Off

Motherboards usually differ in the kind of chipsets used in a computer. Hence, when selecting the best chipset that would match your preference, one must look into the factors like the RAM it will be capable of supporting and if it can sustain a PCI and the parallel ATA that is essential for older hard disks. After keenly checking on this side, it is also salient to find out the other functions handled by chipsets.  The integrated graphics is one element which is ideal for those who are into high end graphic detail, the kind of effects it has and the speed.

The Significance of a PC Motherboard

February 12th, 2015 · Comments Off

A motherboard PC is a circuit board commonly used in hardware’s like personal computers and laptops.  It is known to be the main board and is use in other electronic devices. A standard motherboard offers attachment of the CPU, sound card, hard disk, memory and other external devices. The circuit that mostly connects the external peripherals uses color coded formats that is based on the PC99 requirement. The newer version of 2007 motherboard contains numbers of connections. As of that same year, motherboards contain 4x USB ports on the rear with 2 connections attached and with the Ethernet also included.
