    Supermicro X10SRH-CLN4F Socket 2011-3 Server Motherboard Review

    With the recent release of Intel’s Haswell-EP (aka Grantley) range of CPUs we have a new assortment of motherboards to match. One of the Supermicro server offerings is the X10SRH-CLN4F single-socket (UP, as opposed to dual socket – DP) board.  

  • Gigabyte Brix i5-4200 Haswell Review (BRIX GB-BXi5-4200)

      Gigabyte recently updated their line of Brix mini-computers to Intel’s Haswell architecture (from Ivy Bridge). Today we have the i5-4200 model (BRIX GB-BXi5-4200) in for testing.   Click through to read the review!  

  • Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Network Adapter Review

        Intel’s network cards are popular due to their speed and reliability, which is often greater than the onboard chips in devices/motherboards. The Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Network Adapter is a PCI-E x1 add-in card with a single gigabit port, usually selling for around $30AU. It is low-profile and should come with a low-profile…

  • New Intel Motherboard in-house: S1200KPR Mini-ITX Server board

  • Intel SSD 330 120GB benchmarks

        As promised, here are some benchmarks of Intel’s SSD: An average of 390MB/s for sequential reads? Nice. IOPS: HD Tune Pro’s File Transfer test: Hovering around 500MB/s there – impressive. Last benchmark for now: Overall this is a well performing drive and is the only Sandforce-controller-based drive that we currently use.

  • Intel i5-3470 vs i5-3570

At this…

  • Intel X520-T2 Visual Overview

    There’s not a great deal to say about these cards apart from that they allow you some crazy network speeds, if you have the disk speed to keep up. They can certainly alleviate network bottlenecks if gigabit is holding you back! This particular card has a fan to keep the chipset cool; it’s not going…
