Greeting Asus Maximus VI Formula Gaming Motherboard

Asus is going to put on sale its newest LGA1150 motherboard of ROG (Republic of Gamers) series, entitled Maximus VI Formula. The board features ATX form-factor and is based on Intel Z87 chipset that supports all Haswell-based Intel Core processors. The most peculiar thing about the new-comer is the availability of ROG Armor enclosure that covers the PCB on both sides. The top cover is made of ABS; it prevents the heat produced by the surrounding components (i.e. graphics adapters) from warming up the CPU and VRM systems. The rear cover is made of SECC steel that stops the PCB from bending.



Motherboard Maximus VI Formula houses four DIMM slots that support up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR3 memory modules with up to 3100 O.C MHz frequencies. 8-channel VRM system consists of NexFET transistors, Black Wing throttles, and high-efficiency solid-state capacitors. All power components are cooled down by a dedicated heatsink that is a part of a liquid-cooling system. This motherboard model …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions.

Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.



Integration


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …
