Asus Striker II NSE TrustedReviews 6/2008 - Will the updated Asus Striker II NSE beat off the competition and beat down it's price or strike out?

MSI P43 Neo TrustedReviews 6/2008 - Not everyone can afford the latest and greatest motherboard but that doesn't mean they have to stay out of date.

Asus P5KC Computer Shopper 01/2008 - DDR3 memory is widely available, but it's still very expensive compared to DDR2. You can expect to pay around £250 for 2GB, which is why we didn't include it in our memory Labs. If you're building a new PC, this could leave you with a problem. You may not want to get DDR3 because of the price, but you'll also want to use it in future to get the best performance possible. Thankfully, Asus has an answer to the problem: the P5KC motherboard.

Asus P5Q Deluxe TrustedReviews 6/2008 - Is the P5Q the shining star of Intel's P45 chipset or another disappointment from a new technology that promised so much?

Asus Rampage Formula TrustedReviews 4/2008 - It's been six months since I reviewed the Asus Maximus Formula Extreme. The Extreme was one of three related Asus X38 motherboards with the water cooled Extreme at the top of the tree, the Fusion block SE in the middle and the basic Maximus Formula at the bottom of the scale. Today we've got an X48 chipped Rampage Formula to review and it's the spitting image of the Maximus Formula. That makes sense as the difference between the X38 and X48 chipsets is non-existent apart from the addition of official support for a 1,600MHz front side bus and faster system memory.

Asus Blitz Extreme motherboard Personal Computer World 1/2008 - Based around Intel's P35/ICH9 chipset combination, the Blitz Extreme motherboard supports Intel's latest 1,333MHz processors and DDR3 memory (up to 8GB).

MSI P6NGM-FD TrustedReviews 11/2007 - nVidia's MCP73 chipset has been a long time coming. We first heard about this single-chip piece of core logic in February and now, finally, we've got an MSI P6NGM-FD that uses the new silicon in our hands.

DFI LanParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G PC Pro 4/2007 - With ATi now under the wing of AMD, Intel has good reason to consider whether or not it wants its CPUs to run on chipsets developed by its arch rival. But for now, the coast is clear, and the LanParty UT is the first Core 2 Duo compatible motherboard we've seen with ATi's RD600 north bridge.

Information about the category


Socket 775 is the newest CPU interface from Intel supporting the Pentium 4, Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Editions as well as the new dual core desktop chip nicknamed Conroe but also known as Core 2 Duo. The CPU is the 'brain' of a computer, dealing with all instructions and requests for every process from graphics to mouse and keyboard input. The use of a socket for the processor is much more practical than the old method of soldering the processor onto the motherboard. Were this to be the case the whole motherboard or computer would have to be swapped were the processor to develop a fault, with the socket, the processor can be safely swapped or upgraded by the end user with a minimum of effort and fuss. New technologies such as socket 775 utilise a so called ZIF socket. ZIF stands for Zero Insertion Force and means that the processor does not need to be forced into placed and instead will simply fall into place under its own weight and will then be clamped into place by pushing down a lever. Socket 775 was introduced in 2004 and allows for higher frequencies than the older socket 478 which was introduced at the same time as the Pentium 4. There is also improved power distribution and support for faster memory types. Another new modification of socket 775 is that the pins to connect to the processor are no longer found on the processor but rather on the motherboard. The underside processor contains connection pads which make contact with the spring-loaded, motherboard-mounted pins and thereby reduce resistance and improve efficiency. This also has the effect of avoiding the problem of bent processor pins which could have been a problem if processor were not handled with due care. Socket T continues to evolve to incorporate suppoort for new technologies and is, for the forseeable future, the socket of choice for Intel based systems.
