The Extreme4 definitely looks the part - we see if it delivers on those flashy looks.
Intel's expected to launch unlocked multiplier CPUs in late May.
Gigabyte's brilliant micro-ATX P55M-UD2 offers a bag-full of features and overclocking potential for its modest £85 asking price. Read on to see why this is one of the best motherboards ever made.
This ASRock micro-ATX LGA1156 motherboard is one of the cheapest we've seen, and it has some odd but novel features: a Good Night LED? With a loaded BIOS loaded and some interesting overclocking results, we show you what the H55M Pro can do.
The latest LGA1156 Evo motherboard from Asus features sharp styling and Intel's newest chipset, the H57. The board also adds in USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps - but its high price means it struggles against cheaper P55 boards.
This is the Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H, a media-orientated version of of the GA-P55M-UD2 which is one of the best budget Lynnfield overclockers on the market. We find out if the addition of Core i3 on-board graphics support effects the awesomeness of the board.
The Maximus III is a Lynnfield Republic of Gamers board with a serious legacy to live up to - Asus's Maximus II was a 10/10 product, and powered by Intel's P45 chipset, it was the ideal board for overclocking a Core 2 CPU. We see if this pimped out sequel lives up to its predecessor.
What bodes better for Intel's new dual channel CPU: high clock, low latency or both? We run the numbers for both so you know what memory kit to pair with your new Lynnfield system.
Because of its vastly different architecture, how does Lynnfield compare to its Core i7 and Core 2 Quad brothers when it comes to PCI-Express performance and gaming? We setup a scientific test and got our game on, to find out.
In the run up to Lynnfield's launch, we ran a special competition with Asus. Winners had the chance to come to London, overclock Lynnfield, talk to the Asus team, and best of all, take the hardware home. Read on for our report and check out video from the day!
The original Bloomfield Core i7s were a huge leap forward, providing masses of performance, both out of the box and when overclocked. Ten months on, Intel has finally released the range of CPUs to fill the gap between Core 2 and Core i7 with the new Lynnfield-core CPUs.
An in-depth analysis of what the new Lynnfield architecture of LGA1156 Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs is, what new things it brings and where it fits in Intel's CPU line-up. Read on to see what's new, what's great, and what's not!
We've tested five coolers that are not only on sale now, but are also ready to fit Intel's forthcoming LGA1156 Lynnfield CPUs. Get ready for Lynnfield by bagging your LGA1156-compatible cooler before the rush. Read on to find out which can handle a big overclock the best.
We're rocking the first look boat recently aren't we? Just hit our doorstep is not one but two MSI P55 boards we've dissected to see what's new and this time around we think MSI will give Asus and Gigabyte a run for their money.
The first LGA1156 motherboards are just starting to trickle into the bit-tech labs. As we're still being held at bay with the performance numbers, we take a look at Asus' particularly striking P7P55 Deluxe to see what kind of features we can expect from the pending range.
We've had a play with some P55 boards in the labs and come up with some interesting revelations about Intel's upcoming CPU.
A flaw in the PATA backwards compatibility of Marvell Semiconductors' first SATA 6Gb/s chip has lead to delays.
We've got our hands on an early, working sample of Gigabyte's upcoming P55-based GA-P55-UD5 motherboard. It's another LGA1156 hoping to win the hearts of early Lynnfield adopters, so we've had a look at the board to see what you can expect if you opt for a new Intel and Gigabyte system in the Autumn.
Asus rushes us the first working sample of it's very first LGA1156 motherboard in the UK. We take a look, benchmark and overclock this first of its kind motherboard for the forthcoming Lynnfield Core i5 and i7 CPUs.
COMPUTEX 09: Despite Intel giving us the smiles yesterday, bit-tech has seen confirmed roadmaps of the future of Core i7.
COMPUTEX 09: Sources at Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers say initial overclocking tests have been somewhat surprising.
COMPUTEX 09: Intel makes the claim that the popular Core i7 920 won't be discontinued and what Lynnfield WON'T be called.
We've hit the city of Taipei in Taiwan this week for a scoot around to see some of the latest and greatest to expect from this year's Computex trade show. As usual bit-tech has the exclusive first looks you will certainly want to see!
COMPUTEX 09: Intel is planning to discontinue a number of Core i7 CPUs almost as soon as it releases Lynnfield on September 1st.
