Today's review sample is the ASRock E350M1, which as the name indicates is an AMD E350 Fusion APU with the Hudson-M1 (A50M) FCH. This is an mITX desktop board aimed at anyone interested in building a powerful, yet power conservative, HTPC or Nettop system. With the dual-core 1600MHz E350 being fused together with a Radeon HD 6310 GPU, it makes for the perfect platform with enough horse power for either task. Should you want to make a light TV gaming machine, a digital TV box for DVR, or want the best sound possible for your movies, then there is also a full length PCIe slot that can be filled with a discrete card to match your needs. Having four internal SATA-III ports could easily turn the E350M1 into a massive storage DVR or media storage HTPC. Join us as we see what this little APU equipped board is made of and what it is capable of handling.

asrock h67mWith the Cougar Point chipset and Sandy Bridge processor selling like crazy, so brings a new line of ITX motherboards. The first one we will take a look at is theASRock H67M-ITX/HT. ASRock currently offers two motherboards in this small form factor: one being the HT, which comes with WiFi and a Media Center controller; and the other being a non-HT, which lacks both. Otherwise you are getting the same great motherboard features with both, though we will be taking a look at the HT sub-model for you all today.

One of those models was the P8P67 Deluxe, which sits above the Pro and base models in the P67 line from ASUS. Still not the top of the line in the series, the Deluxe does offer quite a bit more than the Pro. What comes bundled with this particular model is a USB 3.0 front drive bay panel, 16+2 phase power, dual Gigabit LAN ports and an ASUS exclusive Dual Intelligent Processor II (Digi+ VRM controller) to ensure more than enough power gets delivered to the CPU when needed.

asus sabertooth p67Yes, the X58 was a nice looking motherboard but the new Sabertooth model features the TUF armor which is a heat shield that covers the entirety of the motherboard to keep heat produced by other components in the tower from making its way to the surface of the motherboard. The TUF feature really takes the P67 Sabertooth to totally different level. But does the new Sabertooth’s performance make it a true winner? We will find out.

Sapphire PURE P67However, our Sapphire sample today is not the PURE Black X58. No sir, this beauty is none other then the PURE Black P67! Based on Intel’s newest chipset, codenamed "Cougar Point", and is made for the Sandy Bridge processors. While it may not have the white PCB we liked so much about the PURE Crossfire 3200, the PURE Black P67 does offer something over most of the other P67 motherboard manufacturers: the LUCID Hydra technology onboard. If you haven't been up on the current board tech, what this does is gives the user a unique ability by being able to combine two different vendor's graphics accelerators and allow work in tandem for increased performance. Sapphire may not be the first company to the table with a P67-based board offering the Hydra chip, but they sure look to be doing  it better than the rest! So follow along as we put this beast through the gamut of tests and see if it passes with flying colors, or gets a Black mark...

asrock p67 fatal1tyYes, the ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional has a few features that we have not seen in a motherboard before, the most unique of which would be the Fatal1ty Mouse Port. What it does is allow you to adjust the designated USB port to whatever polling rate you wish, from 125 Hz to 1000Hz, which means you could even use the same polling of 500Hz that Fatal1ty uses. As this is just one of the many aspects of the motherboard, follow along and we will give you the full skinny on this new and exciting ASRock review.
