It’s rare if ever we look at mid-range GPUs here at TheOverclocker, and we look at entry level graphics cards even less frequently. However, given that in this issue, we have the likes of the AMD APU, AVEXIR Blitz memory and some other budget orientated components, the GTX 750 was a fitting graphics card to review.

With every generation of graphics processors (at least in recent history), the ROG team had made a special graphics card using one or two of these GPUs. This is over and above their DCII versions which are competent cards in their own right. For those seeking something a little extra though, perhaps even a little special, ROG has produced various incarnations of the Mars, Matrix and Ares graphics cards. The Poseidon that we have here is an extension of this family of cards featuring the latest… Read the full story here



This time, we look at yet another motherboard from the ROG team in the Maximus series. This time, it is the diminutive MAXIMUS VI IMPACT and let it be said, this is one very capable board. From a technical point of view, this in fact is the best mini-ITX board that’s ever been produced. The features that are on this board are simply uncanny for this form factor… Read the full story here



This may have started about as a regular review of the Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition. However, during the course of this review, something had changed as it has now turned into our cover feature. At the time of planning this issue, there were so many things we wanted to cover to end 2013 with, but when the RIVE Black Edition showed up; well, let’s just say it put everything else into
perspective. It’s truly amazing….Read the full story here

ASRock Fatal1ty Killer Series Motherboards Unveiled!

Asus Z87

If you consider online gaming as a fundamental belief, pwning opponents online as a religion that fulfils your life, and the pursuit of a fast and stable internet connection as one of your core values, then ASRock has the answers to probably not all but at least most of your life’s questions: ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer Series motherboards! With the integrated Killer LAN chip, serious players may game carelessly with no lag, just frag!

No Lag, Just Frag with Killer LAN!

What makes ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer Series motherboards so special is that it adopts Killer™ E2200 Intelligent Networking Platform, which boosts the performance of online games, high quality streaming media and other time sensitive UDP (User Datagram Protocol) based applications up to 5 times! Experiments at our lab have proven that Killer LAN is especially good at reducing the latency in online games, for instance the latency in League of Legends can be reduced by 136%, and the latency in Diablo3 is reduced by 60% and DOTA2 by 47%. When it comes to professional gaming, even millisecond decisions may turn the tides of war, either you kill LAG, or be killed by LAG. Hence with the onboard Killer E2200 LAN solution, LAG will never be an excuse for losing anymore.

*Test results may vary depending on the setup, internet environment and time.

Besides boosting the networking performance for UDP based applications, Killer LAN also automatically detects and accelerates game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, stutter free in game performance and the competitive edge, giving users the lowest latency for game data on the most controllable network hardware available.
