The new Crosshair V Formula-Z and Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 are the 2012 upgrades to ROG and TUF’s premium AMD boards. With subtle improvements for AMD’s existing FX ‘Bulldozer’ and future ‘Piledriver’ architecture, there are feature revisions that both can and can’t be seen. One of these is an improved memory performance through higher attainable frequencies – even when using 4-DIMM – thanks to the same T-Topology that ASUS Z77 and ROG Maximus V boards already use, and DIGI+ VRM controlling the power regulation to the memory channels.
Memtest86+ is a utility designed to test your memory for read and write errors. We’ve put together a quick guide to learn how to use it.
ASUS Republic of Gamers Australia is doing a Z77 Competition in cooperation with Kingston Memory so if you happen to be lucky enough to live in Australia you are eligible to enter. There are three levels of this competition and you can enter all three through our YouTube, Facebook and Twitter Channels. Besides the main listed prizes, I have over 200 items from Kingston DDR3 RAM and USB Keys to ROG Shirts, Polos and Lanyards to give away to the runners up. There are plenty of items up for grabs and only so many Australians so you would be absolutely crazy not to enter!
The ASUS Z77 and ROG Maximus V GENE motherboards are now (officially) on sale worldwide, so we’ve been rounding up the news and videos from reviews and previews published so far.
The TUF team has put together its latest Sabertooth Z77 featuring a refined Thermal Armor and Thermal Radar combo, as well as unique dust proof covers for the PCI-Express and DIMM slots. If you’ve never encountered a TUF motherboard before, they are designed to prioritize cooling even in the most hot and arid or humid computing environments.
Danish hardware website, Tweak.dk, has run the Maximus IV GENE-Z and Sabertooth X79 through its testing regime, with the Maximus scoring 97% and the Sabertooth scoring 92%!
In addition to the new Maximus V range of Z77 ROG boards recently announced, the TUF team has been hard at work updating their range with another Thermal Armor clad motherboard, ala the Sabertooth Z77. Here we cover what you get in the box.
