ECS is hitting the Z370 motherboard game with their upcoming lets-throw-all-the-cool-words-in ECS Leet Gaming Z370-Lightsaber, a new motherboard ready for Intel's eighth-gen Coffee Lake CPU architecture.
The new Leet Gaming Z370-Lightsaber rocks a pretty plain look given its burst-in-your-face name, but inside still supports 4 x DIMMs capable of memory at up to 3200MT/s, 3 x PCIe x16 ports, and 2 x M.2 ports that are connected to a PCIe 3.0 x4. We also have 6 x SATA ports, and 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports that are backed up by Realtek's ALC1150 codec and Killer E2500 Ethernet.
ECS is aiming the Leet Gaming Z370-Lightsaver at overclockers, with some beefy VRM heat sinks, and on-board power and reset buttons. Next to the power and reset buttons, ECS has placed diagnostic LEDs that will help you know what's happening to your motherboard when your overclock fails. There are three other buttons that provide you with an update BIOS, reset CMOS settings, or a "quick OS" button.
AMD is currently ripping it up in megatasking uses with their new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, with MSI teasing yet another X399 board ready for the 12C/24T and 16C/32T processors from Team Red.
MSI's new X399 SLI PLUS is the latest one on the roster for MSI, with a similar layout to their SLI PLUS and Carbon Pro motherboards. We have a couple less reinforced PCIe slots, no reinforced DDR4 slots, and no cover on the audio chipset. It looks like it's pretty much identical, with Mystic Light RGB technology joining the game, too.
ASRock have shown that when it comes to overclocking, their X299 OC Formula motherboard is an absolute BEAST! With the NDA lifted for the final few Intel Core X series processors, ASRock with the help of overclocker Splave, were able to display some incredible results for overclocking website HWBOT. Breaking not 1, not 2, but 3 benchmark World Records and an impressive 23 out of 27 global first place finishes, proving that this board is the ultimate choice for extreme overclockers.
Designed by professional-overclocker Nick Shih, the X299 OC Formula features 13 phase Dr.MOS CPU power and 2 phase memory power design, one DIMM per channel memory layout, Hyper BCLK Engine III and XXL aluminum alloy heat sinks. The results speak for themselves, this combination is UNREAL. Throw is support for quad-chanel DDR4-4600Mhz, 5 PCIe 3.0 x16 and 4-way SLI/CrossFireX, the ASRock X299 OC Formula is the perfect overclockers board, and now these results proves it!
The last time we heard about BIOSTAR's upcoming RACING Z370 GT7 motherboard it was from our friends over at VideoCardz, but now we have an exclusive look at the GT6 variant before it becomes available to the public.
BIOSTAR's new RACING Z370 GT6 motherboard looks awesome, with a slick black and gold style that is joined by an array of RGB LEDs that you can customize for the perfect gaming PC.
BIOSTAR did have only 4 nodes on their previous RGB utility, but now they have 10, along with two RGB 5050 headsers on the motherboard for additional RGB LED strips.
GIGABYTE have unveiled their range of new Z370 AORUS motherboards that are based on Intel's Z370 chipset. The Z370 AORUS range fully supports Intel's 8th Generation Intel Core processors and includes support for high-speed RAM up to 4400Mhz. Other features on offer include ESS Sabre DAC, Smart Fan 5 and RGB Fusion, creating the ultimate gaming motherboard range.
"Following Intel's release of the Z370 chipset platform, GIGABYTE has designed a new, groundbreaking motherboard," said Vincent Liu, Senior Associate Vice President of GIGABYTE's Motherboard Business Unit. "GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS motherboards are designed for gamers who value powerful, yet highly durable motherboards. With our new digital power design, not only will Z370 AORUS motherboards unleash the power of the 8th generation Intel Core processors' they will easily fulfill gamers' demands."
GIGABYTE's upcoming X399 Designare EX motherboard is on the way, with it being the new flagship motherboard that will be perfect for AMD's super-powered Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.
There's a slick as hell silver theme, with dual GbE ports, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (Type-C and Type-A) ports, 8 x DDR4 DIMMs, 4-way CrossFire and SLI support (awww YES), and 3 x M.2 slots. All of the PCIe slots on GIGABYTE's new X399 Designare EX motherboard are protected with metal shielding, while the M.2 slots have heat sinks by GIGABYTE.
The blue LED that GIGABYTE is using on the chipset cooler looks beyond awesome, as it works beautifully with the black and silver style on the X399 Designare EX motherboard. I want one so bad.
Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake-S architecture is nearly here, something that will be led by the flagship Core i7-8700K processor. But now we have Biostar's upcoming RACING Z370 GT7 motherboard spotted, and it looks GOOD.
Biostar says that the upcoming RACING Z370 GT7 motherboard will support DDR4 RAM up to 3866MHz, with reinforced PCIe slots, more M.2 slots, Realtek ALC1220 audio chipset, and the Intel I219V gigabit ethernet controller.
I'm loving the black and yellow style on the motherboard, with M.2 cooling teased at the bottom. The RGBs above the I/O panel look great too, but I think this board is going to look great when used in a specific black/blue build... giving me some ideas. Watch this space.
We all know about the cryptocurrency mining phenomenon that has lasted longer than fidget spinners and Pokemon GO combined, but now Colorful is entering the game with the most unique motherboard... well... EVER.
Colorful has just announced a non-standard form factor motherboard that uses Intel's LGA 1151 socket, with the new C.B250A-BTC PLUS V20 motherboard (you won't forget that easily, don't worry) rocking a huge 8 x PCIe x16 slots. The board is a massive 485mm in length and even 195mm wide... meaning even huge HPTX cases won't house it.
The new motherboard is built for mining-specific racks, with 8 x PCIe x16 slots and 2-slot spacing between them for 8 high-end graphics cards to mine 24/7.
MSI is preparing a new budget conscious motherboard on Intel's upcoming Z370 chipset, with the new Z370 KRAIT GAMING motherboard making an appearance courtesty of VideoCardz.
The new MSI Z370 KRAIT GAMING motherboard is virtually identical to its Z270 counterpart that there are only a few changes, with a new color scheme, and its USB headers and SATA ports oriented differently. We still have MSI's own Mystic Light RGB LED technology behind the chipset for some RGB LED goodness, but other than that we can expect a slightly tweaked Z270 motherboard when the Z370 KRAIT GAMING arrives next month.
The crypomining phase is slowing fading, but this hasn't stopped BIOSTAR releasing the first Micro-ATX Intel H110 Chipset Motherboard dedicated for crypto mining systems. Built ground up for mining, BIOSTAR have removed features don't enhance mining performance to keep costs down and efficiency up.
The compact design still allows for 6 x PCI-E support (1 x PCI-E x16 3.0, 5 x PCI-E x1 2.0) and supports all the essentials in optimizing your mining rig including 7th generation Intel Core processors, 2-DIMM DDR4-2400MHz RAM to 32GB, HDMI and USB 3.0. Featuring HDMI KVM support, this allows for easy management of multi-mining setups or D-Sub KVM for more conventional multi-monitor setups.
The BIOSTAR H110M-BTC is a great choice for entry miners, that require affordable pricing and still offering support and performance for multiple GPU's.
