The PC Motherboards for Gaming and Business Computing
Personal Computers are still more versatile compare to Apple Computers, due to the convenience that the owner can choose whichever parts they want. One of the most important parts in building your computer is the motherboard. You can go and browse PC motherboards by quickly searching google or going to a website like SuperCS where you can find new and old desktop and laptop motherboards. Included below are 3 motherboards talking about their features from popular computer manufacturers such as Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.
Asus SABERTOOTH X99 Socket 2011-v3
Designed to overcome the existing limits in computing performance, the ASUS OC Socket uses additional pins to connect an additional circuit to the dedicated contacts found on the land grid array (LGA) interface of the new Haswell-E processor.
Combined with the customized UEFI solution, this exclusive function allows reaching the high operating frequencies of DDR4 memory modules, low latencies and high stability when overclocking procedures are being initiated. Even extreme nature solutions involving Liquid Nitrogen are being accounted for. Bus cache connects areas such as processor cores, memory controller for DDR4 and L3 cache.
This is a crucial connection to the whole process. Higher frequencies of the bus cache are a certain method to improve the overall performance of the system. Asus OC Socket offers an exclusive function for adjusting the voltage used for cache bus, in order for it to reach higher frequencies.
The ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 is one of the first platforms able to support DDR4 memory modules and accelerate them up to 3200MHz. Coupling interferences and the signal reflection phenomenon are being reduced to a minimum. ASUS made sure compatibility with all major DDR4 manufacturers is taken in consideration, making the motherboard ideal for extreme overclocking.
In terms of heat dissipation under extreme loads, the motherboard is equipped with a thermal armor able to reduce measured temperatures by up to 10°C. Performance enthusiast will be happy to know that they can install 64 GB of RAM on Asus SABERTOOTH X99.
Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming G1 Socket 1150
This is mid-range priced motherboard aimed directly on gaming enthusiast wanting to squeeze some extra performance from their system. The philosophy used to improve the quality of the sounds is that the shortest route is the best route for audio signals.
The GIGABYTE 9 Series G1 Gaming motherboards feature the shortest audio communication paths between each critical component of the audio system, from chipset to audio jack. Lower noise disturbance is the direct effect of limited crosstalk and the very close proximity of the AMP to the audio jack.
Another feature intended to drastically improve the quality of sound is the use of high end Nichicon audio capacitors. The obtained sounds effects are more realistic and the improvement was felt by experienced gamers used to test the motherboard.
Gold is used for both the inner cover of HDMI connectors and for the plate covering the Creative Sound Core 3D processor, which eliminates any electrostatic interference. To add to all that, the motherboard has a dedicated zone for audio hardware, while analog and digital are being kept separated in order to protect against harmful Electromagnetic Interference.
Designers introduced LED lighting in order to indicate the separation of the PCB layers. Besides its strong point in terms of delivering high quality sounds, Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming G1 has an Extreme Multi-GPU Support and also provides a SATA Express connector.

MSI X99 Godlike Gaming
Designing this motherboard was made with one sole purpose in mind. User should now be able to enjoy the new DDR4 frequencies without having to worry about compatibility issues. With 8 memory slots available, MSI supports larger memory configurations up to 128GB, more than enough to satisfy to most exigent gamer or graphic designer.
MSI X99 is equipped with a heavy plated armor, which protects circuits against any form of Electromagnetic Interference. Thus, the audio signal is kept pure and interference with other components is held to a minimum level.
The use of Chemi-con Audio Capacitors and Nahimic Sound Technology makes the motherboard a true performer of its very own class. MSI X99 Godlike Gaming introduces for the first time a built-in hardware technology for quickly unleashing the power of overclocking your system. Forget about entering BIOS to change voltages and frequencies.
The motherboard is able to squeeze an additional 20% of performance from the CPU and memory at a press of a button. The technology is labeled OC Genie 4 and takes pride on being the first of its kind. Accessibility was also a concern for developers of MSI X99 Godlike Gaming.
Buttons allow fast and easy reset and power up/down while overclocking, and there is even a clear CMOS button that will make you forget about setting jumpers. The motherboard also allows 3 multimeters at once for voltage monitoring.
