ASUS continues to offer a wide range of motherboard products to suit just about any preference or budget here in the X79 product lineup. Some prefer uber-premium products, and for those there is the Republic of Gamer lineup, and we saw the Rampage IV...

This crop of boards is tough to compare, because the four have a lot in common. They all have similar specs (predictably), boast good looks, feature UEFI BIOSes, and posted very similar scores in our benchmark tests. Thus, looking at the pros and cons...

Besides the Intel Siler reference X79 board, the Sabretooth was the first motherboard of a different manufacturer that ended up on the Madshrimps table. The first liquid nitrogen tests were also conducted on the Sabretoot, without any hickups. From...

The SABERTOOTH X79 does not come cheap and at Rs. 22,000, it’s quite expensive. But then again, this is no ordinary motherboard. It’s designed and built especially for enthusiasts who want to push their hardware to the ragged edge. In fact,...

The Asus Sabertooth X79 is a treasure trove of useful and interesting features. It might cost more than other manufacturers' offerings but it has the best cooling, EFI and overclocking and monitoring software of any LGA2011 board we've seen. The...

The Intel DX79SI motherboard isn't competitive with the ASUS boards; large skull insignia aside, it's simply outclassed on performance and features. That said, it's $40-$80 less than the ASUS motherboards, and that's money you can put...

Tempted by an Intel Sandy Bridge-E chip? If so, you're going to have to pony up another £200, at the very least, for a supporting X79 motherboard. ASUS has seven such boards in its stable, ranging from £220 through to £320. Currently...

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a motherboard that is certified reliable under military specifications. After all, “military class” components sound like something directly taken from a PR’s notebook. Upon opening the...

Intel's latest world beating beast, the Core i7-3960X, has arrived and so has its X79 chipset.And that means a raft of fancy new motherboards based on the equally box-fresh X79 chipset. Intel's own DX79SI aside, our first taste of an X79 mobo...

Das ASUS Sabertooth X79 ist ein solides Board ohne großen Schnick-Schnack und basiert insgesamt auf einer sinnvollen Zusammenstellung an Features und Zusatzchips. Die sehr gute Lüftersteuerung wusste auch bei diesem Modell wieder zu gefallen...
