ASUS' Entry Level X99-A LGA2011v3 Motherboard Starts Selling

ASUS' entry-level socket LGA2011-v3 motherboard, the X99-A, began selling. Although announced along with ASUS' mainline flagship, the X99-Deluxe, the X99-A, along with mid-range X99-Pro, weren't available immediately, as the company decided to go in with three flagship LGA2011-v3 products, the ROG Rampage V Extreme and X99-WS being the other two. The X99-A appears to be based on a slightly watered down version of a PCB it shares with the X99-Pro; different from that of the X99-Deluxe. It's targeted at high-end gaming PC and mid-range content-creation builds.

To begin with, the X99-A is built in the standard ATX form-factor. It draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors. An 8-phase VRM conditions power for the CPU, with a 2+2 phase VRM for the eight DDR4 DIMM slots flanking the CPU socket on either sides. The CPU socket is wired to three PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (x16/x16/NC or x16/x8/x8 on i7-5960X and i7-5930K; and x16/NC/NC or x8/x8/NC or x8/x4/x4 on i7-5820K), and a 32 Gb/s M.2 slot, which features a PCI-Express 3.0 x4 physical layer. Other expansion slots include one PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (electrical x4), and two PCI-Express 2.0 x1. The board supports 3-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX.

New Avexir Memory Modules Put Up A Lightshow

Avexir memory modules always caught our eyes at tradeshows for being extremely 'boutique' in their approach to the market. Not that we're complaining. They didn't disappoint this time either, showing off some colorful, shiny, and glowy modules of many shapes and sizes. The first kind below are Core Gold, with tops that light up gold, which should go well with ASUS' mainline Z87 motherboards, and ECS' Golden Boards. These modules are available at speeds ranging all the way from PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) to PC3-22400 (DDR3-2800), in 4 GB and 8 GB densities, and in single-, dual-, and quad-channel kits. Some of these ship with two XMP profiles.

Moving on, the next kind are Platinum Red. These black beauties lack headspreaders, use high-grade Elpida-made DRAM chips, and feature pairs of tiny red LEDs lining the top portions on one of their sides. These modules are available in speeds ranging from PC3-10600 to PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600), and are available in the same densities and packages as the Core series. There are plenty of motherboards that look good with black and red. Next up, are the same modules with glowy heatspreaders on. These heatspreaders pack an acrylic bar that disperse light from these LEDs, and look awesome when installed. The last exhibit is an example of just how far Avexir will go to live up to its boutique reputation. It shows modules with tiny fluorescent lamps lining the top, which work at low voltages, probably using external power. Starting a florescent lamp takes additional circuitry, and you can find that in the picture.
