Motherboard MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A Review

Military-class motherboards elaborated by MSI have been always distinguished by the implementation of all high-end components within supply circuits, by extended overclocking facilities, and by corresponding exterior design. FM2-A85XA-G65A model corroborates such outstanding descriptions, being a worthy representative of products branded as ‘Military’. Moreover, the integration of high-quality and solid hardware elements enhances its overclocking potential that can’t but gladden PC enthusiasts.

Design and Layout

MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A is developed in ATX form-factor. It is notable by a fanciful, spacious layout, taking into account the full-fledged options integrated within a single chipset. Thus, there is no need in additional controllers. The distance between two graphics slots has been doubled to organize even the most powerful CrossFire configurations. The integrated heatsinks feature 31 mm height; one of them is located only 5 mm far from CPU socket. This implies …

Gigabyte Intros Affordable GA-B85M-D2V Plus Mainboard

Micro-ATX/mini-ITX mainboards keep on capturing the market due to the augmentation of small-sized PC platforms. Against this background, Gigabyte is constantly enlarging its portfolio of compact motherboards. Take GA-B85M-D2V Plus alone. This model might boast an optimized functional and an improved audio subsystem combined with a sleek design and a range of protection doo-dads.

Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Plus takes Intel B85 chipset as the basis. The latter supports Socket LGA1150 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Intel Core). The company’s designers employed an improved fiberglass mode of superposition on elaboration of PCB textolite; this is called to protect the board from humidity, electrostatic discharge and voltage instability.

The board’s layout supports Ultra Durable 4 Plus design that involves only high-quality components, like solid-state capacitors, transistors with low open channel resistance. The PCB is equipped with two DIMM slots ready for 16 GB of DDR3 memory (1600 …

HIS Adds an Original Graphics Card to Its Inventory

The inventory of graphics solutions developed by HIS has been replenished with a new original in design card based on Radeon HD 7850 adapter. Entitled HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ, the card is stuffed with a three-slot IceQ cooler and substantial memory volume that equals to 4GB. In addition, this model supports iTurbo applet that promotes for the GPU and memory clock frequencies increase.

Graphics card from HIS is based on a two-layer copper printed circuit board. The latter houses soldered DrMOS elements instead of conventional transistors. The integrated GPU is furnished with 1024 current processors. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 860MHz but can be dynamically boosted due to iTurbo technology. In its turn, iPower technology ensures stability and more voltage index for efficient overclocking process.

Memory subsystem is introduced by GDDR5 modules with 265-bit interface. The nominal memory clock frequency approximates 4800MHz. Power supply subsystem consists of …
