After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

Quick little motherboard review round-up.  We got some Z77 boards in there with the illegal "ivy bridge" monger in the title (as of this news post "ivy bridge" hasn't been released).  We also got some fancy X79 boards in there including the MSI X Super Big Boom Bang BIffity-Bish Bash board.
